[edit] Transcript

{Scene opens to a wintry version of the burninated cottage from Peasant's Quest, with an odd blue object with a red bottom in the screen as well. The Peasant's Quest theme is playing. The score is "0 of 1." Rather Dashing walks on in winter attire. The command "look" is typed in, loading up the following text:}

Even your burninated hovel
looks picturesque in the
cold Peasantry snow. Oh,
and there's a snowglobe on
the ground. That's what
that red and blue thing is.
A snowglobe.

{The command "get snowglobe" is typed. Rather Dashing picks up the globe, and the score changes to "1 of 1." The following text appears, as the "got item" sound from Peasant's Quest plays:}

Hey! It's a Trogdor snow
globe! Now you have a
Decemberween present for
Nana. Score!

{The Trogdor snow globe appears on-screen, with the text "Greetings from Peasantry" on the base.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • At the end you can shake the snowglobe. After you've shaken it for 30 seconds a "Time Wasted" counter will keep track of how much time you've spent shaking the snowglobe. The timer will count up as long as either you hold down the mouse button or the stuff in the snowglobe is moving.
  • When the timer hits 2 minutes you will get this message (spoken by Trogdor himself). This can also be accessed by right-clicking "Play" in the Flash file.
Congratulations! You
wasted more time than any-
body else ever has. Happy
Decemberween, peasant.
Your life will be spared
for another day.
