Ok clearly there are plenty of pop culture references. Please help me suss them out:


Row1: David the gnome/regular garden gnome, Unknown, Grumpy, Unknown
Row2: Unknown, Unknown, Unknown, Unknown
Row3: Unknown, Unknown, Unknown, Unknown


Row1: Nothing. They're chameleons!
Row2: Unknown, Unknown, Harry Potter (Scar included!), Ginny (+sorting hat?)
Row3: Gandalf, Unknown, Rasputin (Hellboy), Unknown


Row1: Taran (Black Cauldron movie, not book), Unknown, Luke Skywalker, Unknown
Row2: Unknown, Dirk the Daring (Dragon's Lair), Unknown, Unknown
Row3: Unknown, Conan, Unknown, Unknown


Row1: Unknown (This one especially is killing me), Unknown, Unknown, Unknown,


Ok so a lot of generic baddies, but lo and behold- in the middle, a beholder and Cthulhu!



Please help me fill in the gaps!

Taran? The first green card is very clearly Link from The Legend of Zelda series. Hence the chicken leg (you can attack chickens in about every game just for the heck of it).

And that looks like a dude for Ginny, i.e., probably Ron, if anything.

especially killing you is Grendizer from the anime UFO Robot Grendizer, known in the U.S. as just Grendizer.

Link would definitely have the hat.

Look at her in original size! I think the eyelashes give it away.

The rings - a reference to Lord of the Rings?




Trogs - reference to Claustrophobia?
(i think it mentions this on the artist's website.

Ok, Little help laugh
The main idea was "a lot of references and no references at all, to instill doubts in the players minds"... ^^
The publisher is Gameworks and I added several references to the games we did before.


Row1: Regular garden gnome, Unknown, Grumpy, Unknown
Row2: Unknown, KungFu Panda Attack Style, Unknown, Unknown
Row3: Unknown, Night of the Hunter wink (but whith CHEESE / HAM), Unknown, Unknown


Row1: Third one in a Yoda fighting pose. And a "Crtl+C" on the necklace
Row2: Tiggy Tamal from Dungeon Master video game, Unknown, Harry Potter, Melusine (in French comic book)
Row3: Gandalf, Unknown, Rasputin, Adam Hughes' Ghost wink


Row1: Taran, Unknown, Luke Skywalker + a Swiss knife (Gameworks publisher wink), a girl designed by my daughter
Row2: Unknown, Dirk, Unknown, A kind of Disney Prince Charming
Row3: Unknown, Conan, Unknown, Unknown


Row1: Goldorak in French, Water Lily boardgame wink, Hulk punch (green + purple colors), A design found in the Tikal 2 comic included with the boardgame,


...A beholder, a Kraken, Dragon, (but not Cthulhu)...And Trogs - references to Claustrophobia.
