Moose in the Eagle's Shadow
Amongst the cages in the second level of the Cobb's Knob Menagerie, you discover a white-bearded old man, sitting serenely in his jail cell. "Hello?" you call out.
"Hello to you," he smiles pleasantly. "It's nice to see you."
"What are you doing in here? I thought the knob goblins only imprisoned monsters in this menagerie!"
"Oh, it was an honest mistake on their part," he says. "I am a practitioner of the Way of the Surprising Fist, specifically the Canadian Weremoose Style. I was working on my forms in the midst of a herd of actual weremoose, and was captured by mistake."
"That's terrible! I must free you from this prison immediately!"
He waves a hand casually. "Oh, don't worry aboot it. I wouldn't want to put you to any trouble. I'm sure this'll all get sorted oot in the end, eh?"
"Well, if you're sure..."
"It's no problem at all. Thanks ortaking an interest, though. Here, let me give you this scroll, it's got some of our ancient teachings on it."
"I couldn't possibly accept such a valuable document..."
"Don't worry, I'm finished with it. Read it hundreds of times already, eh?"

- The kanji on the scroll means "root", "man", and "big". If you reverse the order, it means "big penis" since "man-root"/男根 is "penis".
- The title of this adventure, the old man's politeness, accent and repeated use of eh?, all refer to Canadian stereotypes.
- The name of this adventure is a play on the name of the 1978 Jackie Chan film Snake in the Eagle's Shadow.
