"The Watcher" suddenly reminds me of 2 things :

- "Watcher Of The Skies" - a song by Genesis,

- "The Watcher And The Tower" - a Watcher shown on the front cover of Mike Oldfield's "Crisis" album - and mentioned in the lyrics of its title song …

Combined, it could be some figure like the Watcher in the very beginning of Monkey Island 1 … Only with his or her glasses being clear …

He might be watching the sea - looking out for an possible arrival of the player characters ? For the Codex Imps ? For anyone else ? For the Ancient Mariner, known from Tolkien's early tales ?


I must say that I'm quite fond of creating easter eggs like this …

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)
