    Consistency between text and graphics...could we have some, please?

    I'll grant this request is a bit of a nit pick, but it's the kind of thing that can be bothersome as it makes one wonder if the text writers and animators ever communicate with each other....

    In the quest dialogues early in Book III.10 Gleowine's instrument--a harp--figures with some significance. A harp is appropriate for ham, and specifically, a rota, as that was the type of harp used by Anglo-Saxon bards. At the end of the Book, we see Gleowine performing. At that point, he's playing...a lute. Say, what?

    But don't some musicians play more than one instrument?
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"

    So? He gives it to everyone else, too. He appears to have an endless supply of harps, but where has he been keeping the lute? And if he had one all along, why the fuss over recovering and repairing his harp?

    He keep his lute inside his spare change clothes bag, envolved with his ministrel tunic (you know they can be huge). The souvenir low quality harps are toys, they cannot replace his level 85 eastenmet teal harp.

    And in case you're wondering what the heck is a rotta, here's a picture...
