Nope - nobody in my group spotted it until I did - because its in the intro fluff which nobody else read.

Actually, I'll tell you who didn't, non-Python fans who actually read the fluff.

I read it the time I played the game. I was the only one who got it in the group (the other players being Japanese, and they had their own translation...)

Yes - I was thinking of another, even more blatant reference though

It was pretty obvious, if I recall.

I don't know about a Python reference (actually I do, but...)
but I am planning on visiting my local gaming store today and they have a GREAT prop for my SoC game. I plan on buying the Black Knight's helmet (done in shiney leather) and using it to tell who's turn it is!

"Don thy helm and go for the glory of Camelot!!!"
