I never found out where the blanket girl appears in the game. Is she supposed to be one of the characters?

Here's a nice one. One gives the voice, the other gives the looks.

Image = Image + Image

You all know Mark Hamill as the voice actor. Mosely's look comes from Robert Lindsey, a programmer at Sierra.

Anyone noticed where the number 0772 appears? I noticed it in at least two or three games, and it's important in one of them.

It made me remember of 1138!! I don't know whether the number has any significance for Sierra or to any of the designers.

That seems like a bit of a stretch... ;)

0772 is among the personal numbers of Chen Lu in Rise of the Dragon

from its occurrence, you are to guess that it is the combination to his safe

It is also mentioned as the phone number of Principal Frick in Willy Beamish

And I think it also appears in some Gabriel Knight game

It's definitely RotD and WB... Google shows that. But not GK or PQ.

The third time I noticed this number was in a closeup of a newspaper clip. I guess it was not used, therefore no need to be found as a text somewhere.

Still, it's notable that a seemingly insignificant number appears in 3, or even 2, games.

Which is the one single Sierra game with the most numerous and most explicit insults appearing in dialogue? (although I guess not many have noticed) ;)

Mask of Eternity?
That entire game is an insult. :lol:

Or LSL7, with Peggy.

I'd say Larry 6, when Larry calls Carlos.

I'd say Conquests of Camelot. The only reason I think that is due to a post I read on the Quest For More Glory forums a while back.

Maybe this has something to do with Sonny Walls himself. The "Wall" name is reminiscent of the famous Wall St, home of the world's biggest stock exchange.

Now the name "Sonny Stocks" sounds too silly to use. However, stock exchanges also sell bonds - therefore, Sonny Bonds.

Well? Too convoluted? ;)

Or... maybe this is a reference to handcuffs. Before cuffs were invented, captured criminals were bound with rope. Maybe this is a reference to bonds of rope? *shrug*
