Too Obscure For You?
Who is Eddie? He’s a Guy On The Street, aka one of the thousand NPCs you find wandering around in an old school RPG. They only have one thing on their minds, enough to fill up to three text boxes. That’s all they can say, do, or think… until you complete a plot point and move the story forward. Then, somehow, they know something else.
Eddie is also a character from the game Anachronox. In that game Eddie knows everything, so much that you have to give him something to concentrate on in order to get him to answer a question. In Anachronox, that was a rather disgusting sock. Don’t ask.
