ETA: There are spoilers for Darkhold in this post but they\'re not appearing as spoilers for some reason. Is markup for discussion posts different? I can only assume that\'s the reason for the weird formatting.
This was originally a part of the page, but I commented it out because I\'m not sure that any of these really count:
For one thing, neither the Instructions for Egress nor the box containing them are Mac Guffins by any definition of the term. For another, the box wasn\'t even broken. The last example is the only one that might be a true example, as while the diamonds aren\'t really Mac Guffins, their purpose in the book hadn\'t yet been revealed and for all intents and purposes they were more or less Mac Guffins. However, I\'m still not sure if it would count, as Doon quite deliberately threw the diamond and I have a hard time imagining he didn\'t expect it to break.
What do you guys think?
