    Hello.

    Already translated, but I would like to know what I did right.

    "I suppose there'll b-b-be no rescue by eagle from d-d-down here ..."

    "rescue by eagle" - Is it a reference to the Eagle Transporter (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eagle_Transporter) with the Rescue module?

    I think it's a reference to the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit when Gandalf calls upon the Great Eagles to rescue the Company of Dwarves from the trees/orcs.

    Thanks Nutter, I've been forgetting to check the translation forums lately :)

    Once again correct. This line plays sometimes when Mandalf is put in Prison. He's lamenting that they'll be no LOTR-style rescue by eagles, since he is down here in a dungeon. It's poking a little friendly fun at what is sometimes seen as a deus ex machina.

    I've added a note to the GameText file for future reference.
