That event spawned the infamous "HELDENIMPORT" toipic even then at the old Attic Forums … It continueed into the Larian forums, and has become kind of an insider joke there.

The term "Heldenimport" means the import of a hero = character of the RPG into a sequel - like it was possible with all three NLT / Realms Of arcania games.

Initially, the topic about the "Heldenimport" was just speculation whether there might or will be a sequel to Riva one day, and whether and how a hero might be imported into that sequel, and how much of that gear will be lost or retained.

Sadly, there never was such a sequel.

The "insider joke" part of it within the German-speaking fan-base at Larian Forums (who are all so to say exiles from the no more existing Attic forums) consists of the image of the "Heldenimport" discussion becoming too long and far too complicated to be bearable by any human mind.
In the end, it's just like "Oh ! he has outspoken THE word !!! Everyone flee !!!!!"
Because an insanely complicated discussion would follow.

It's a little bit like Buad's TEA, which is an insider joke in itself.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
