Num#1 :
......but Larry originally was (before even traveling to lost wages at LSL1) a Traveller Software Salesman…....

Not according to The Official Biography of Leisure Suit Larry by Ralph Roberts & Al Lowe
published in 1997. In that Larry works as a programmer prior to his occupation as Software Salesman in the actual games!  Smile

Rosella is not a character you can play as in KQ5 and KQ6 (only appearing for a couple of seconds in the final cutscene). I interpreted that question as the number of games where you get to play as Rosella (KQ3, KQ4 and KQ7)...

     

Now playing: Blade Runner (post-CPT) | The Witcher: Enhance Edition (on hold) | Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (on hold) | Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (3DS)
Recently finished: Whispers of a Machine (CPT) - 4/5 | Beneath a Steel Sky (CPT) - 3/5 | 3 in Three - 3.5/5 | Puzzle Gallery: At the Carnival - 2.5/5 | The Fool’s Errand (replay) - 3.5/5 | The Dig (replay) - 4.5/5 | Return of the Obra Dinn (CPT) - 4/5 | Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity - 3.5/5 | League of Light: The Game (CCPT) - 3/5 | realMyst: Masterpiece Edition - 2.5/5 | Contradiction - 3/5 | Tex Murphy: Mean Streets - 2/5 | The Last Express - 3.5/5 | South Park: The Fractured But Whole - 4/5 | Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (replay, CPT) - 5/5

Rosella is not a playable character in KQ3!
At least be consistent in a quiz.
And Rosella actually speaks in both KQ5 and KQ6, so it’s more than appearing on screen for a couple of seconds.

Oh, I wasn’t arguing about having got #1 wrong - just blaming my wrong answer on Wikipedia Smile

Same here Phlebas!.......but I will argue against the thought that the info in Wikipedia is inaccurate as it does seem that it is based on that in The Official Biography! The Wikipedia article starts of with some emphasis on Larry’s early life including his job which is not relevant to the games so a little misleading to us that haven’t played them!    Smile

BTW According to the Official Biography Larry is actually 5’ 10” - can you believe that?  Laughing

My mistake - I obviously haven’t played KQ3. But she’s a major/plot-important character in 3, whereas in 5 and 6 it’s just a cameo.
I get why Advie picked “three” as the right answer for this…

Of Course, but i thought Sierra is not a very-too-interesting subject, for all posters here, but maybe, after ‘Something Wicked’ is passed i could give another.
