I don't think nerf did either,   they were just... There at the hardware store,   really cheap,   next to the paintballs.   And then they had the cheaply made polyester hats that tried to look confederate/ union.   All together for each person they spent 26 dollars on everything.

Yeah... oddly I can't find any around here... retailers don't import um. Well, we still have the cheapo brand toysrus foam sword which works just as well, and costs $5

 We always cut those down with a box knife so they looked like a rapier. And we reenforced them with hardwood dowels

One little thing I noticed was how handsome Mr. Klopp is. Page 498, Goliath, for an older guy, he looks good.
I love his expression in that picture! It's so self-satisfied and smug!

Speaking of accents I can do a really good British one.  And German.  If I'm speaking German at the time.

One by one, they ran away.  With their made up minds to leave it all behind, as the light began to fade from the city on the hill.

Trample the weak, hurtle the dead.

Mmmmmm Norwegian deer liver.

Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

I wouldn't push people I DONT like down a hill.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but in 'Draining', Alek is standing on a box. This is right after Deryn pointed out that she was taller than him XD

if you look at the picture "Blasť about old sights" (the one where  Deryn is eating potatoes.)
you can see a Message lizard underneath the table and it looks like it's eating crumbs.

I really don't know if anyone noticed this, but when I did, it was pretty cool.

I was re-reading the Leviathan series one time (I do this a lot  :D) and I noticed that in Behemoth, on page 438, Alek mentions that in Lienz, he saw a beggar with no legs pushing himself around on some sort of cart.  If you look in Leviathan, on page 118, with the illustration "The Streets of Lienz", you will see a man on a wheel-cart with no legs begging for money.  (I think that he was behind Alek.)

I noticed while stalking old threads. Someone mentioned it about three years ago.
Another one pointed out in that thread was that in the two-page picture of the Dauntless, in the bottom-left corner, there's two guys holding rope. Then, in the picture when Deryn is awesomely defending the Dauntless from hijackers, the guy she's swinging at is one of the same guys!
