The one that I've experienced a lot:

... you want to save and restore before and after a maths test

It was Fenrus in games 1 and 2. It was Fenris in game 5. I can't remember what it was in game 4, though.

It's Fenris in game 4.

Zahmatra(n): it's Aziza, not Azziza.

Also, it's "Dead ant, Dead ant, Dead ant"

Here are some for Wednesday...

...you put some weird bells in your front door.
...you like to use the trigger spell with the Coke machines.
...you correct the spelling of the names from QFG
...you use the thief sign to go to the bars for free
...you played QFG in all languages
...you go walking "stealth" all day. How do you expect to raise that skill?
...you get a back pain for walking "stealth" all day
...you have to go to the doctor to correct your back for walking "stealth"
...you visited the creators of QFG (Mr. and Ms. Cole) and asked them what happened to the real black bird and why was so special?

Cheers...

Note: I originally played the spanish version of QFG3 and after the killin of the Ant it would say: "Hormiga Muerta" = "Ant Dead." Sorry for that mistake.

That's a translational issue, as in English, adjectives come before the noun, while they're after in Spanish.  "Hormiga muerta" is actually "Dead ant" in English.

The problem is, the translation to another language completely kills the true nature of the joke; the repetitive "dead ant" was supposed to be a send-up of the Pink Panther theme music.  Trying singing it and you'll understand (presuming you know the theme).

Thought I'd add a few...

...you check your local college for correspondance courses in adventuring
...you know the secret ingredient to good root beer.
...you always sign your name with a flourish.
...you wonder why your job doesn't have a guild hall.
...it's not a scratch on the wall, it's a THIEF MARK
...you try and sell flowers at the local pharmacy.
...you watch the movie "The Fifth Element" and wonder why there isn't more pizza.

...your doctor's name is Dr. Cranium.

I haven't played QFG in many, many months. But still, I hope that some time soon, I'll get to playing them again.

Right now I'm just living a rut and my brain is starting to rot due to inactivity.  |I

When you've been playing for so long, you can't figure out why hitting "Rest for one hour" isn't working... but you keep trying and trying... hoping some skill will go up...

it changes throughout the series. You know you've played to much QFG when not only do you frequent forums where it was discussed and not only was the last game released when you were 7 years old but your online name is Quest For Glory Fan and your post count is almost 1500.
