After VI, it kinda leaves open the whole black cloak thing. Actually, besides King Graham’s family (what is their last name anyway?), the black cloak brotherhood turned out to be one of the only continuous threads in the series. I feel like it’s unresolved, like the heart of the organization is still at large. Even though I love VII, it seems like that was the beginning of the wheels sort of falling off of King’s Quest. It was trying different things and not selling as well, and by VIII it had totally changed.
