Wow... never noticed them. I mean, sitting right there, all hidden and in plain sight at the same time.

Gorbacz, you just baffled me. :)

SS: Said by Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

CC: As Gorbacz noted, originally from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, uttered by some Carpathian noble.

JR: From Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress, a story which would later inspire a young George Lucas to write a screenplay about a princess who needs to be safely transported somewhere.

There's no evidence of that...

I might have started this whole thing with Pathfinder #6. At the time I was quite taken with similar hidden credits page messages that Privateer Press had slipped into the Witchfire Trilogy. Having one in every Pathfinder volume seemed like too much of a chore, but having a special "post credits" message at the end of the whole AP felt very cinematic.

I didn't expect it to become tradition, but I'm glad it did. :)

That is the warning the newspaper guy broadcasts at the end of the 1950's version of The Thing.

Now I'm curious as to what the closing quote will be for Giant Slayer and Hell's Rebels.

My money is on a Voltaire quote for Hell's Rebels.

Well, there's no denying that there are dangerous things beyond the skies. Here be (void) dragons and worse ...

I will vote Paradise Lost for Hell's Rebels... or maybe one of the things Al Pacino yells in Devil's Advocate? :)

It actually goes back to Brutus's apocryphal statement to Caesar, and has been used extensively by revolutionaries ever since.

Giantslayer - "We are like dwarves standing on the shoulders of giants"
Bernard of Chartres, an alternate version of which was later popularized by Newton.

I really thought this had been updated for Hell's Rebels, no matter.

"Omniscient am I not, yet many things i know" - Faust, by Johan something von Goethe, (from Hell's Rebels)

"I was walking among the fires of hell, delighted with the enjoyments of genius, which to angels look like torment and insanity" - The Marriage Of Heaven and Hell, by William Blake. (From Hell's Vengeance)

Thank you. Even though I made by own Will save against that itchy Americentrism, I appreciate that you didn't :p

Ruins of Azlant: "Where is my mind? Way out in the water, see it swimming."

Do we have a source for the RoA one? It sounds like some form of modern poetry (not my strong suit).

E.T.A.: Nice avatar! ;)

We have our first Starfinder Adventure Path hidden quote!

From Dead Suns.

"How many of those ancient points of light were the last echoes of suns now dead?"

I have never spotted these before until I found this thread.

Another bit of brilliance from Paizo.
