Talk:Three-Tooth Lake

Is it really a play on the word "trident"? I realise they have similar meanings, but I'm not sure where a trident would fit into Keen - it could just be a cute name for a lake with three islands, completely unrelated to any sort of trident! -- Malvineous 12:57, 5 December 2010 (GMT)

I had assumed that since "three-tooth" is a completely uncommon construction in English (and that the lake doesn't in any resemble a mouth) whereas trident, derived from the Latin word for "three-tooth" and used in the water, is, that a reference wouldn't be necessary. However, I just found something even more compelling (and of more general interest). In the original sketch for the Dopefish, Tom Hall has written a note 'Need Trident Power Ψ to go underwater', showing how a trident was originally supposed to fit into the Keen universe. - Flaose 20:45, 5 December 2010 (GMT)
Now that's the sort of reference I was looking for! Care to include it on the article page? You could probably expand it quite a bit further with that new info, too. -- Malvineous 01:15, 6 December 2010 (GMT)
Sounds good, I'll try to work something out soon. - Flaose 19:49, 6 December 2010 (GMT)
