Is it my imagination or is there a distinct flavor of Monty Python throughout the game. Come on the Killer Bunny!!! That was from the search for the holy grail.

Yes there is certainly a monty python feel to the games humour. I was hoping for some holy hand grenades to take down the killer bunny...

There is much more than "just" Monty Python flavor. Good luck finding everything smile

Dragon Terror Patrol.

And I thought that was a Mortal Kombat reference, not Power Rangers...

I agree that there is more than a Monty Python feel but I am A real fan of MP and I thought it was awesome that they would use a killer bunny.

If you want some Holy Hand Grenades you'll have to play Fallout: New Vegas. I had a laugh the day I found then in Fallout. I had just put in Fallout after Killing the Killer Bunny in Divinity and about ten minutes in I got the Holy Hand grenades

don't forget "Brave Sir Robin" on the second floor of the pub and the barkeep's name is Tim, which i like to think is a reference to the fire shooting mage in the holy grail.

Jackal and Clyde. There's a quest where you meet someone with multiple personality disorder in Broken Valley, one is called Jackal and the other is called Clyde and you get to choose which one to kill by having a potion brewed for the one you wish to destroy which will leave the other the sole occupier of the body. When you ask how they got into this situation, they mention they found a note afterward with the last words being "two have become one", the before parts of the notes rhyme. It's obvious Bellegar - the rhyming wizard is responsible for this. He's responsible for many stuff going on in Broken Valley.


Oh and skeletons in the closet. Where farmer Jackson killed a man called Booth because he slept with his wife - in a cave nearby the farm, you can find a closet with a skeleton in and underneath is a note about how the farmer dug him up while he was drunk to dress him in his wife's clothes but when he realized what he was doing - probably put him in the closet. The quest about the murder is activated if you read the farmer's diary. It's funny to note that the quest is called "skeletons in the closet" and Booth's skeleton can actually be found in a closet.

There's more - many quests and their characters often intervene with other events in the game.

As for the killer bunny - Brave Sir Robin mentions killing 19 rabbits in his book but with no killer bunny showing up. The later pages of his book mention how he killed around 59 undead - which was his brother in law who was being brought back to life every time Robin killed him by none other than Bellegar.

You may also find sleeping travelers during your travel through Broken Valley. Read their thoughts and listen at the items they mention. Finding these items will wake them for their sleep where they will mention a rhyming wizard put them to sleep. Once again - Bellegar's doing. He's pretty much the running gag of the game and many troubles are down to him.

There are many mentions of the killer rabbit. That book, one on the table of the guards in the Fjords... and several more I can't recall right now.

Jackal and Clyde (collectively called Eugene), who you tell to be careful when you first speak to them, are a reference to a Pink Floyd song ('Careful with that axe Eugene' on the Ummagumma album).

Also, I lol'ed at the comment the dragon spirit said after I brought back Sveldfari's head to the general. "You have an unusual way of giving head" *snickers*. How did you ever get that past the publisher smile
