I suggest everyone looks through all the attempts so far for inspiration. A couple of them got very close without realizing it...


Wait wait wait wait wait!  Before we go off and put a lot of thought into this, I want assurance that we haven't already guessed the answer without using the "proper" method. :P ;)

We the people demand a letter count!  Also no taxation without representation would be nice too. :=

I cannot make any promises regarding the taxation of my subjects, but I can confirm there are 19 letters in the answer to my clue. I'll save the breakdown of those 19 letters for later.

Thoughts so far....

[hide]"Emotional Dwarf" is perhaps a shortened form of emotional, like "emo".
"in stitches" probably means put "emo" into "stitches", like "stemo itches", or "stitchemoes" (roll)
"a new production" could be a "recent release" or a "novelty"

So my guess is novelty stitchemoes. :P

A more obvious guess would be a 19 character name of a famous emo AGS character, but I refuse to guess that without figuring out how at least some of the clue could possibly relate. :undecided:

-----
edit:

WAIT!  Dwarfalized "emotional" = otion! :-D  I knew I was on the right track!

-----
edit again:

...And "Spiri" is apparently a new line of quadcopter drone, a "new production" as it were.  So I'm guessing somehow "in stitches" = "tennis", maybe referring to the surgery required for tennis elbow? thus:

otion spiri tennis aka more commonly as Oceanspirit Dennis! ;-D

I'd be looking at my games list actually ;)

I'm guessing Stu would try and prank me after the last round (laugh)

So...

My First Big Adventure?

new production = first adventure
and the dwarf is emotional because he got big?!


Easy as shooting fish in the ocean

Nope and nope. It's not the name of a game and I'm not pranking anyone :-)

I can tell you there are three words.
I'm reluctant to give specific clues yet because getting one word will probably give the whole thing away. So just have a play around with the clue and I'll tell you when you're warm :-)

Hmmmm...so there are:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Three dwarves that have emotional names: Happy, Grumpy, and Bashful...

I'm gonna try Happy in stiches or sutures....so: stihappyches or suhappytures...Hmmm "pyches" or "pytures" kinda sounds like "pictures"?

New production = premiere?


So yeah....no idea really...

What can you use to make stitches?

[update]
Not even any guesses?
I've been dropping hints all over the place but you haven't noticed.

Hahaha....got it after following those links....

The thing that threw me off was trying to put the Dwarf in the stitches, as the puzzle kinda suggests...

Also, I'm guessing that OROW is a major reason why the thread here went a bit dead. Why don't you edit out the massive spoiler hint(s) in your post and see if anyone gives it an honest go now that OROW is over?

I also got it after visiting the links :P
but I honestly think it doesn't have anything to do with OROW.. Stu is just way advanced than (at least) me (nod)
