It occurs to me that I have alot of "in-jokes" and references buried in Midnight's Song.8/14/2007 #1
Half the fun is figuring them out yourself, but some parts of the story don't make sense unless you get the joke.
Near the end of Chapter 8: A Shot In The Darkness, a couple references are made to a game called "Shadowrun".
If you don't know what this is, I feel sorry for you.
Shadowrun was an old pen-and-paper role-playing game--like Dungeons and Dragons. Only this game was set in a dark, cyberpunk future where corporations ruled the world and elves and mages sold their services for industrial espionage.
Basically it was like Johnny Mnemonic--but with dragons.
I could literally go on forever, but you wouldn't read it--so just google around for info on the subject. That should clear up what Orrin means when her refers to "A Decker, a Shaman, and a Street Samurai."
