Gah! There are only two 'o's in 'Monroe'! Monoroe was an early-version typo.

Go ahead and slay me for replying to an older topic.

Done? Ok. The isolated hut in A2 (near the Motrax hospital cave) is a safe house for Ethridge and Tori. Sun symbol with a circular rainbow around it adorns the doorway. One bed, if you were curious or slow.

I found a really good one, somewhere in Avernum 2, i cant remember i think in south west Avernum.
There is a Woman named Eddy and she has been kicked down into Avernum with her friend Patsy for being too loud or something (anyone seen the show Absolutely Fabulous would understand)

:( **** i just realised that someone else posted this one

As a local of the Seattle area and a Mac user, I am doubly-pleased having Spiderweb nearby to take some pride and pleasure in. It also gives me some obvious inside scoops of a few more of these naming sources. In Avernum 3: Paulsbo, Port Townshend, and Bremerton are towns on the Olympic Peninsula here in Washington across Puget Sound from Seattle...it takes a ferryboat ride or a long roundabout drive to get to them from here.

And...it's completely eluding my recollection at the moment, but in either Nethergate or one of the Avernums, there is a complete town with residents named after characters in one movie, TV show, or book...and I can't remember for the life of me what that was, but it made me chuckle....anyone remember specifically what I am vaguely recalling here?

My first post here, by the way...just finished the three Avernums and BoA in rapid succession.

Monroe is also the name of a nearby city which houses a large prison.

One town has characters from Babylon 5. Again, I'm not sure exactly which, but I think it's Golddale.

—Alorael, who thinks you're thinking of Golddale.

—Alorael, thinks Monoroe really got the short end of the stick. Gale has golems and zombies who just can't hold their drugs.

GAH! There is no "who"! My world has rotted into an ORANGE!

And is it really necessary to second your own opinion, Alorael? (See the above post if you're confused)

And lastly, thread necro is for ugly people. Even if Salmon already did it.

The signature adds emphasis. Gale has not only the worst of the plagues, which would be bad enough, it also suffers from rampant skribbane addiction. Mon(o)roe is everywhere you don't want to be.

—Alorael, who actually would like to be there, but only long enough to restock.

I played E3 before I ever visited Seattle. When I noticed these towns on a map, my first thought was "Wow, I didn't know Exile was that famous."
