I know it's "alliteration" not "palindrome". It was like 3 in the morning ok?

    Brauggi doesn't speak in Palindromes (Which is the way a word is read is the same as in reverse order) he speaks in Anglo-Saxon alliterative verse.

    Which I only know because Thor in Marvel 1602 spoke in this.

    Which is coincidental seeing as Brauggi is obviously a Frost Giant!

    ...

    I am SUCH a nerd.

    Those alliterative verses are far better known from the old norse skaldic poetry. Although there are several old english/anglo-saxon examples of alliterative verses (Beowulf, The Lament of Deor), you can find many more examples in the old norse literature (Codex Regius, Snorra Edda, Grettis saga, Egils saga, Gunnlaugs saga, Kormaks saga).
    The fact that Brauggi is obviously a frost giant (Old norse: hrimthurs), his very old-norse-sounding name (but I think it's made up) and the fact that he speaks of Jotunheim (The giant's land in several old norse mythological texts) let me believe, that the inspiration for this figure lies in the old norse myths rather than in the anglo-saxon pagan world (wich we only know very little of).

    ...

    Sorry if I outnerded you.

    Edit: I like that there is a "Zauberberg" in the game. The german author Thomas Mann wrote a novel called "Der Zauberberg". But I'm not yet sure, wether there is a deeper meaning to the use of that "Zauberberg" in the game or not. We'll see.

    Have you tried using your Open Spell on the Potion Lady's door?

    Yay! More Quest for Glory!

    I've played this game many times, but didn't know you could steal from the Healer. Now I'm very curious to know if this situation can be solved.

    Also, I wondered if you knew that there was a hidden treasure in the Kobold's cave? I'm sure Sneakyfeet would appreciate the extra cash! ;)

    Anyone know when this was filmed? His twitch page does not have any new recordings.

    He has a Youtube channel that he uploads it on, I hope that helps.

    As far as I know, the Healer never lets you back in once you steal the potions. So if you don't have the Dispel potion, the game is rendered unwinnable. I'd say this is one of the nicer Sierra games, considering the only way to irrevocably fuck yourself is to screw up the Dispel potion, but there are so many ways to screw up the Dispel potion it's easy to fall into at least one of them if you don't know better.

    @Huggin; I kinda knew that it had prevalent roots in Scandinavia, but you obviously know more than I do about the subject! Kudos!

    Also; re Let's play; If you can't get into the Healer's this game is irrevocably fucked.
