I don't think any of the gnomes in the games were very popular. There was some dislike of Ann Agrama and Yorick too. The Domovoi, the Leshy and Manu weren't popular either. Actually, the list is pretty long...
Yeah, I don't understand why they kept putting those in. The only thing they did well was ruining the mood.
I kinda liked Ann, and I didn't mind Yorick or even Keapon that much. It's really just Punny Bones that bothers me, and not so much because he's a gnome, more because in a game (not to mention series) that's full of hilarious characters, he's completely unfunny... *POTENTIAL SPOILERS, READ NO FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T PLAYED THE GAMES*
... and he teaches you "the ultimate joke"? And it makes Ad Avis burst into a fit of laughter?! No. Just... No. No! *SPOILERS OVER*
Wait Meeps were in Quest for Glory before Hero-U?
I should really play Quest for Glory before Hero-U is released.
I attached a screenshot. They never showed up again in the QfG series, but I expect we'll see their true colors in Hero-U.
Oh, they seemed kind and helpful enough, but I've always suspected an insidious nature behind their happy-go-lucky disposition. I mean seriously, look at that face, those intense eyes. Deep down you know it's just waiting for you to get close enough so it can wrap its paws around your throat and gnaw the nose off your face. And don't get me started on their tunnels, who knows just how deep and far they go, or where! Why, they might have very well burrowed below each and every one of our homes, where they wait quietly, spying on us, studying us, until they're ready...
... Or it could just be Sierra Adventure Gamer Paranoia.
