Added DiffLines:

* RecordedSplicedConversation: Billy from ''Society'' splices together some sound-clips from Wendy's laptop to fake a call from Bruce, drawing the bartender of the Blue Iguana away from his post.

Added DiffLines:

* MagicalRomani: The young fortune-teller in ''Tomb'' dresses in stereotypical "gypsy" clothes, although it's never explicitly stated that she's Romani. Tia claims that the letter-tile puzzle from ''Spirit's Eye'' is a ritual device used by Romani magic-practitioners.

Most games in the series are traditional ''Myst''-style point-and-click, whereas the original 1991 version is a picture-enhanced text-based scenario, and ''Society of the Serpent Moon'' employs a 3-D avatar protagonist. In a throwback to the early days of PC gaming, ''Last Half of Darkness'' [=DVD=]-packs incorporate printed supplements that are necessary to decode in-game clues.
