    So the Mumrik fellow which is present in both arcade and Story as a peculiarly dressed camper is an interesting character. Would I be right in saying that he is an allusion to The Mumintrolls which is a series of whimsical novels? I believe that is the case but unfortunately I have misplaced my old books so I can't find an accurate description of the character I am thinking of. I'm sure somebody here knows whether I'm right or not. Either way, it isn't anything gamechanging.

    He definitely is a reference to Snusmumriken (engl.: Snufkin), yes.

    Cool. Awesome books. I read them in Russian primarily, so his name eluded me for the longest time.

    In russian he is also called Snusmumrik as far as I remember. And Mumin is actually called Mumitroll - no idea if he really is a troll, though :p

    YES! That is exactly it! I just found my 2 books! "Dangerous Summer" and "In the End of November".

    So I suppose our job is to be a Hemulen, then?
