OH MY GOD APPARENTLY TAKING AN ARROW TO THE KNEE WAS AN OLD NORDIC SLANG FOR GETTING MARRIED
I THOUGHT THAT ALL THOSE GUYS IN SKYRIM HAD LITERALLY BEEN SHOT IN THEIR KNEES WITH ARROWS BUT I GUESS NOT
Wow the implications of this slang. “He guys I was a great warrior until I got hobbled/married!” Holy fucking sexism batman :|
Soooo, in the latest Tomb Raider, Lara can get a survival attack upgrade that is literally stabbing one of her arrows into the knee of her opponent to take them down before killing them. It took the LPer I was watching a LONG TIME to realize what the reference was, too.
