I have heard several rumors that many of the heros in the old Apogee games are related, such as Duke being related to Major Striker (or what ever that guy's name was) and that Keen was related to B. J. Blackowitz from Wolfenstien. Does any one know of any other relations?

I only know of the Keen/Wolf Connection.

From the Apogee FAQ
Quote:
William Joseph Blazkowicz was born August 15, 1911, to Polish immigrants. Blazkowicz was a top spy for the Allied Forces, receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor and other accolades for heroism. "B.J.," (as he was called by his friends) married after World War II, at age 40, to Julia Marie Peterson. Their son, Arthur Kenneth Blazkowicz, became a television talk show personality in Milwaukee. For show biz purposes, Arthur changed his last name to Blaze. Arthur later married Susan Elizabeth McMichaels. They had one son (which they named after Arthur's father), William Joseph Blazkowicz II, or as he signs his grade school homework, B. Blaze....

Re: Apogee Geaneology
yes and Duke and the major stryker guy are releated (according to the apogee faq)
That keen one was always funny, If I remember correctly one of the Keen games mentions his real name and that would clue you to wolf right away (if you read the "READ THIS" areas anyway)

What about Nevada Smith and Alabama Smith?

Wasn't Nevada Smith in Artic Adventure and Pharoh's Tomb?

In Paganitzu 2, there was an inscription saying either a joke about or something that actually was:

That Nevada Smith was Alabama's Smith's long lost brother. but that they wouldn't meet until Paganitzu XVI or something to that effect.

Paganitzu II? To what do you refer? There wasn't a Paga 2 -unless you're referring to Episode 2 of Paganitzu, which isn't the same thing.

I'd have to ask Keith about the genealogy there.

I just finished "Realms of Chaos" and discovered that Endrik and Elandra, the brother/sister protagonists, are the children of DeVasco, the sorcerer who sent Omigosh the evil spirit to the present world in Paganitzu.

Wasn't Alabama Smith in "Kroz?"

Well, Realms of Chaos had two former names:

1) Alabama Smith & the BloodFire Pendant

2) Paganitzu II

So the connection between characters doesn't surprise me, due to the #2 link.

Re: Apogee Geaneology
What relationship was Maria, from Paganitzu, to Devasco then? Another Daughter or just some girl he picked up off the tribe of Aztec women?

Uh oh - What about Marķa? Another daughter, I think. Didn't she come back with Alabama Smith to the present?
