Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (11.25.09): Every Which Way But Uth

Ramblings: Quite a few references in this episode.  Zeroth’s randomly appearing shield (as well as his yellow scarf) are a nod to the Mega Man character, Proto Man.  Zeroth’s “science defying pack” is a reference to the magical holding pack the character Snarf has in the fantastic fantasy-comedy comic strip SnarfQuest (by Larry Elmore).  SnarfQuest (along with the comic Bone by Jeff Smith) is a big influence on the Magic of Eyri.

Zeroth’s line about getting the pack from someone who was “reluctant” to part with it is a tip of the hat to the film Spartan.  Val Kilmer’s character has a similar line regarding a knife.   A personal favorite joke in this episode is Zeroth mentioning the Hunter band, Prophet’s Profits, which I wrote as a reference to the band Herman’s Hermits.  Prophet’s Profits are a Hunter band out of Eaner, a name I came up with while looking at my Beaner’s Coffee mug when I wrote the original novel.  Beaner’s has since changed its name to Biggby Coffee.

Arbal’s repeating crossbow is based (loosely) on a Chinese repeating crossbow. Arbal’s name comes from arbalest, which is a large crossbow (and one of the weapons Arbal uses). Cam’s name comes from a part of a compound bow.
