I just replayed The Real Texas. It was still pretty great. BUT I HAVE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS:
Charles is meant to be Charles Dickens, and Emily is Emily Dickinson (PROBABLY) (though the real Emily Dickinson only had one sister, named Lavinia). I STRONGLY SUSPECT Benjamin is Benjamin Britten, but there are too many composers named Benjamin to be sure, and his costume isn't as distinctive as Emily's. Is he in fact Britten? (Am I being dumb and missing a strong clue to his identity?)
In the front hall of the castle, there are six tapestries depicting the lords of the Rockingham estate. The second tapestry is desecrated, and has Mammon's logo crudely painted on it. What significance is there to this? Who ruined the tapestry?
I get that the crow in the ending is meant to be the crow from the very start of the game, but is his/her dialogue meant to be so confusing? Does it refer to cut plot elements? Is the crow just crazy?
What goes in quickdraw slot 5? Is it the triple crossbow (which can't actually be quickdrawn as far as I know)?
Some of the time periods which the townspeople come from seem sort of inconsistent; for Garrett to be a rapper, he'd have to have come from the past 20 years or so, yet his ghost appears in the ballroom with everyone else's, implying that his earthly body is already dead. Was he something other than a rapper, who was recast as a rapper when the protagonist entered Strange, thus altering the dimension's idiom to "Texan"?
Unrelated to any of the above, but I remember Wyburn referring to the town as "Happy Town" rather than "Strange" in an early conversation with him, which I assume is an oversight.
