Quote from: KatieHal on June 19, 2010, 08:08:14 PMI never read the novelization--Lovecraftian? Really? Oooh, tell me more! I ALWAYS got nervous when I had to go near those trees. And the ogre's house? Oh man, my heart would be pounding! And around the creepy haunted mansion. I was convinced something was about to jump out at me or a ghost would come along and kill me any second.

Quote from: Baggins on June 20, 2010, 01:02:46 PMOther connections besides the Nightgaunts and Dholes found in the "An Encyclopedia of Daventry" (a supplement in first and second edition) is the fact that 'Whateley Manor' was once owned by Wilbur Whateley from the Dunwhich Horror. Whateley Manor was also the location from the Dunwhich Horror.It is also mentioned in all editions that Whately Manor was originally a mansion from Innsmouth, another Lovecraftian town. The former owners had the Innsmouth stare (i.e. turning into fishmen and left for the sea). The hauntings started later.Its also interesting that the pirates in KQ3 were ultimately killed by Cthulu, heh heh. According to Alexander, "Ia' R'lyea! Cthulhu fhtagn! Ia'! Ia'!" is a powerful spell.Abdul Alhazred wrote the Necronomicon. He's also a character originally from Lovecraft.I think I put up all the Lovecraft links in the King's Quest Omnipedia, in the assorted articles. Although it's possible I missed a few.Check out the King's Quest Omnipedia, I think I listed a few there.
