Recently while talking to NPC Jessica I came across an interesting thing unrelated to any known quest. If you ask her about 'rumours' she will tell us that Sven is willing to pay 1,000 gold pieces for each Venorean hunter's head.
It turns out that Venore hunters reside near Svargrond. Their base is located on Tyrsung. Jessica hates the Venoreans. Sven has no sympathy for them either. According to Jessica, we need to say the word „Blubber” when talking to Sven. Supposedly it's a secret word that will tell Sven that he can trust us. If we go to him and in the NPC channel type the word "Blubber" Sven will answer us, but apparently, he is surprised and does not give us any task. Turns out Jessica probably fooled us.
However, when we copy the word "Blubber" from Jessica's statement instead of typing it, strange things start to happen. The image below shows the use of the copied word.
When you try to send a copied word in the NPC Channel, the message "Sorry, not possible" appears and Sven doesn't react to the word. It looks like the word "Blubber" in Jessica's statement contains some unknown encoding or some hidden characters. I asked my friend to check it on a completely different computer and account. The result was the same.
I would like to know what is the purpose of this? I've had a lot of conversations with NPCs and this is the first time I've seen such a strange situation. I suspect this is some kind of bug, but I'd like to make sure because it's a strange case that this "secret" word is bugged.
