A Myrshnik is an Arcadian creature. In Convergence of ''Dreamfall'', Crow tells Zoe not to fear that the smoke bomb may harm the Dagdam Yiru in Friar's Keep. "''He might wake up with a headache. Just remember that he would cut your head off without a moment's hesitation. It's a myrshnik-eat-myrshnik world, baby. And only the strongest myrshnik survive."'' The resemblance to the real-world saying "It's a dog-eat-dog world" implies that a Myrshnik is a dog-like creature.
The real-world aphorism takes its modern, English form from an inversion of that attested in the http//www.wordorigins.org/index.php/site/comments/dog_eat_dog/ 19 June 1789 issue of the London ''Times'', which read "it is an established fact, that sharper will not rob sharper, nor dog eat dog." This came from the old Latin proverb ''Canis caninam non est'' ('dog will not eat dog'), known from http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcus_Terentius_Varro Varro's http//www.thelatinlibrary.com/varro.ll7.html ''Lingua Latina'' VII. Evidently, a world in which dog ''will'' eat dog is in trouble.
Ragnar http//ragnartornquist.com/?p=655 commented on the Myrshnik on his blog (http//web.archive.org/web/20090619044056/http//ragnartornquist.com/?p=655 web archive) in response to a reader's email, confirming that it was indeed a creature. He also promised in a http//www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1a0klp/i_am_ragnar_t%C3%B8rnquist_creator_of_dreamfall/c8szv1o?context=3 Reddit AMA answer that "we will see ''something'' of the Myrshnyk in Chapters".ruМиршникCategoryDreamfallCategoryArcadiaCategoryCreatures

Ragnar? Is it entirely ethical for you to be editing your a wiki about your own stuff? p - UserWandrew 0007, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
== It's no Ragnar, lol ==
It's me, vToMy.
Since Ragnar wrote
"EDIT Headline, to reflect that ‘myrshnik’ is both singular AND plural. Thanks, TLJwiki. You’re my number one resource whenever I need to dig into my own convoluted lore. Keep it up!"
I thought it needed a change, doesn't it?
LOL Oh well. I just thought it was suspicious he changed it and an anonymous user fixed the article. ) - UserWandrew 0203, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
