Agreed. Plus, lacking opposable digits, he'd have a hard time handling a crossbow. He does carry a sword in KQVI, I believe.

Yup. Two scenes in particular stick out - at the start, when Alexander's talking to Alhazred, Saladin has his sword part-drawn for the whole conversation, and noticeably sheaths it at the end. Then at the wedding, when the genie disguised as the princess orders him to execute Alexander, he begins to draw his sword. He then fights the genie with his sword when the genie is unmasked.

Huh? How do you think he holds the sword, then? All of the guard dogs have human-style hands.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

If someone wants to design the sprite sheet and a tile map for the buildings I could plug it into already existing code of mine and show you what it would look like.

There's FPS that don't involve shooting too much -- have you played Heretic or Thor's Hammer (I'm definitely dating myself with that one :P)? Those had melee combat.

Seems like it would bastardize Saladin somewhat to take a well liked adventure character and put him in a first person hack and slash. Mask of Eternity, anyone. :P

Well in Heretic I think it's a staff and in Thor's Hammer I believe you can use either a hammer or an axe. Obvi, I preferred the hammer. Cause of how it's named after a hammer. :P

So what you're saying is that you're worried that the Kings Quest series...

*puts on sunglasses*

...will go to the dogs.


Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor...I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

Yeah, I was pretty sure I've seen someone else say that somewhere.
