It could be, but that's akin to the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

ive only read the first four pages, then skipped to this one and i can see its still running. jokes most appreciated in the UK? ok weve mentioned Little Britain, Monty Python and so many others, but do you seriously believe, with so many priceless quotes, that BLACKADDER would not make it in there?
"Run to the hills! Run for your lives!" is not in there as an Iron Maiden quote, its in the first ever Blackadder after the Battle of Bosworth.

Playing as the Egyptians, I noticed in a rather largish battle a sand dune distinct and very prominent and was sure I had seen it before somewhere, it could only be compared to that of the famous Mount Calvary that Jesus Christ himself was crucified on.

Obviously not the very same Mount Calvary but the one used in (wait for it) Monty Pythons Life of Brian... That's where I had seen it.

So there we have it puzzle solved, lots of cheering and chanting of my name and the laying on of hands and holding babies and kissing housewives and such-like.

As for my reward, well I would like a solid gold statue of my late bunny rabbit Trixi belle, who met its unfortunate demise in a freak accident in Skegness whilst visiting their now famous Doodles sausages, sausage factory.

Thankyou and may God speed you on your way to wherever it is this very fine life takes you, as for me...well, I'll do just fine.

So it's in BI, not RTW!

Right - time to fire up BI then...

It's a text file too, but out in the open. Maybe there's a general named after a famous racehorse?

He is doing this on purpose now, he never mentioned anything about BI and is just wasting our time although I do not doubt the existance of an easter egg.

I've spent today on and off looking for clues. I think he might be throwing us off, but maybe not. I want him to tell us, to hell with the anticlimax.

Just some shots in the dark but I've encountered a couple funnily named generals:

Captain Milkpilles (Numidian)
Captain Posthumus (Rebel)

I thought captain posthumus was a little dubious. They probably aren't anything special but it's something to think about.

"Sauce-box" is obvious.

I am a creature made entirely of Tupperware.

I think I prefer the term "sauce bucket" myself.

How about the druid ancillary description the celtic faction heir starts off with?

Wasn't there a fairy tail about a certain chicken little...

Captin Fishpants, if I may be so bold, you are a squirrel-basher that likes to drink tea between surfing lessons. This is the reatest puzzle I've seen since an Agatha Christie. God bless, and make sure you put a reference to HG in the MTW2 game (Lol, like THAT'll ever happen)

There- random moment over.

My ability to sneak cross-references into M2Tw is slightly limited by the fact that I'm not really working on it. M2 is being done in Oz, and I'm based in the UK office working on super-secret stuff that I can't even begin to think about in public, let alone mentio........................
