Just accepted a mission called "Parasite Cleave" and a lightbulb turned on in my mind.


Have you caught any references during your journey?

The game is bursting at its seams with them.

There is a raptor FATE called "Clever Girls".

90% of the fate/quest names are all puns of some sort. My favorite, "It's not Lupis..."

Close second, Black Mage quests. "Once you go black..." and the following "You never go back."
