It's been about three years since I played that game, but besides 
Terminus Est I remember that one of the swords was called an estoc, a 
rather obscure word that the designers could have picked up from the 
BotNS. I wonder if it was like that in the original Japanese version, or 
just the product of the whimsy of the English translators. Has the Book 
of the New Sun been translated into Japanese?
