..between LoTR and 'Quest for the Magic Ring'!

In QotMR, you have a powerful Ring, a kingdom that invades when the ring is found and retrieved, and the black-robed, undead Black Phantoms.

Coincidence?

Wow - it seems so obvious now that you point it out! Well spotted. I wonder if any of the other quest plots can be traced to other stories ...

Hmmm, I know the QotMR has similarities but another called Slay the Mighty dragon is based on a fantasy story series, Journey through fire.
Where a holy dragon goes beserk. And the only thing that could destroy him was a magic sword called Vendrel. (Thats the swords name)

That reminds me, last night I was watching a movie call: John Tremane and the lost city of gold. And Helia's temple, and solari look alot like those people in the golden city.

Very odd... I just got the Gold Edition to-day (I have normal version for Mac)
and just started Quest for the Magic Ring...

You know how you see that one Red Inn not far from you? Guess what it is called this time?

Uncle Elrond's.

If you have read the book or even seen the movie, you should see the connection.


Interesting?

If you tell me how to take a screenshot, I can try to post it or something (Hey, it's a new PC, I have no idea what I am doing)


P.S. I am running it under XP, and I can't get the Balance of Twilight working... and I can't even find the Wrath of Krolm, where do dl'ed quests go?

Damn, someone beat me to my finding! Oh well...

BUT!! I can however underline the fact that getting an inn called "Uncle Elrond's" is NOT limited to that quest... In fact I have gotten it myself on a few occasions in Freestyle and once or twice during other quests. To my experience, you were witness to an insane coincidence, since (in my version at least) the names of the inns in QftMR are randomly generated, like those of your own inns.

Just thought that I'd mention it.

The way I save screenshots in Win98 SE is I hit the "print screen" button which saves the image to the Clipboard. From there it's a matter of saving that image to a particular program. I use also use a program called, "HyperSnap" sometimes but there are many others and several Forum members use different methods.

Oh, I'll admit that it is quite amusing. If executed correctly, in-jokes and references are great fun. Most games have them, and as we have proven here, Majesty does as well.

And it was a bloody brilliant coincidence with the "Uncle Elrond's" in QftMR!

By the way, starinmyeyes, I utterly love your second quote...
