Speaking of which... anyone else see the niftiness of the fact that KQVI has a beauty and the beast story in it, and the voice of Alexander in that particular game is done by the same guy who voiced the beast for Disney's Beauty and the Beast?

Interesting.  I never knew that!  Heh, I wonder if he was giving the dude who voiced the beast in the game some pointers.   :P

Very much noticed. Nifty indeed ;D
But I liked his voice much better in KQVI  :D

Geez, and I thought I was being thorough... don't think I would have caught half of those.  ;D

Oh, what about the chicken petit (is that her name?), the one that says "the sky is falling"? is that a mother goose referance (I don't really know mother goose... just thought I heard that somewhere)?  :-\

There's one fairytale I see missing there, or a tale...

Alice in Wonderland.

The intro is SOOOO it.

I don't know about Mother Goose precisely, but Chicken Little is definitely a children's story, and it does involve lots of usage of the phrase "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!".

Wow!! Im-press-ive!! Go Akril go!

Hee!  ;D

Yup, there is the Chicken Little fable of the sky is falling. Hmm...can I think of any others.... well, the cornucopia/horn of plenty is definitely from Greek/Roman myths as well, of course. The Boogey Man, well, wherever that began, is well-known as the tale to scare kids and so forth.

brain not fully working right now, but akril definitely got most of 'em!

"If the king at noonday says, 'It is night' -- behold the stars."

Hey, it's not that far-fetched. There's some similarity - Rosella/Alice jumps into a magical pool/rabbit hole simply because she's bored and inquisitive, and arrives at a magical world  ;)

Besides, Cesar is no king - he's more like a servant. After all, we got him working for us  :suffer:

I'm sorry, but that is the basic framework of many, many stories. Bored teenager/young person wants to get away from his home/family, leaves in search of adventure, encounters a messenger that acts as a catalyst, encouraging him, and in most cases, he steps into another realm, or encounters a being from that other world.

(By the way, have any of us even READ AiW?)

The fact that there are many stories like that doesn't make it untrue... and since Alice was written so long ago, you might say those stories were inspired by it as well   8)

And yes, I did read Alice in Wonderland many years ago, when I was little. As I recall, I found it rather tedious  :P

Well,it bears more specific resemblances to AiW than many do. A very particular creature that she follows, falling into something very rabbit-hole-esque, and having been in the woods to begin with when it happened, escaping a conversation she was in particular bored with.

Also, I think Rosella's personality in much of that game is kind of like Alice's (my own perceptions, btw, are more from the movie than book), the type that wants more books with only pictures and so forth.

I think that "finding a needle in a haystack" is from a fairy tale. I don't know which.

I thought so too... but all I could remember for certain was fairytales where ants assisted the hero by sorting grains or something like that :-\, So I put it in a more general category  8)

In KQ1, the wolf represents Peter and the Wolf? Just a guess...
"And still we all are so hopeful,
So righteous in our blood.
It looks so tarnished in our eyes,
Yet so afraid of...

Fading into nothing,
Fading into nothing.
Just a trace of light
That burns within our thoughts... "
