    Captain Blood's hand of cards

    I have been doing a bunch of runs in miranda for bloods coat and thought i would share about the dea mans hand that Blood is holding.

    Currently, the dead man's hand is described as a two-pair poker hand consisting of the black aces and black eights. Along with an unknown "hole" card, these were the cards reportedly held by "Old West" folk hero, lawman and gunfighter, Wild Bill Hickok when he was murdered.

    Yep, the guy who shot him, lost heavily to him in a game of cards the day before, he (Wild Bill) told him to quit and gave him money for breakfast, the guy accepted the money, but was insulted, shot him the next day.

    I love the references in this game. Bob Dylan has a song about him too, I think.

    Re: Captain Blood's hand of cards

    Ah, yes - the legendary "Dead Man's Hand" aces and eights. No one ever knows what I'm talking about when I mention that...

    Really? Truly I thought it was a fairly well known culture Easter Egg reaching even youth worldwide, even if I've seen a few slightly altered versions.

    Though I certainly know nothing of a song with it.
