Stinky corpses = flowers. Makes sense to me.

    Logic is a wreath of pretty flowers which smell bad.

    Too soon? Or awesome tribute? You decide.

    Maybe it’s a pushing up daisies reference?

    It’s a White Chrysanthemum. In Japan, it is a symbol of death and grief, and are often used for funerals or on graves.

    I’ve always laughed about the corpse-flower, too. Not sure what other kind of icon you could make it, though. XD

    Off the top of my head, a casket or gravestone or a body wrapped in a shroud.

    That’s true. I guess they were trying to be less morbid, though the quests were morbid enough if I remember rightly.

    Interesting about the flowers, thanks for the illumination!

    I assumed so, yes. And a playful jab at EVE’s “frozen corpse” items maybe.
