I would be really surprised if no-one ever saw this

Funny, I never noticed this myself. But then until recently I didn't know who Avellone was either ;)!

I always thought it might have some meaning, but I still don't know who Avellone was.

Chris Avellone is a game designer/writer. He wrote for Planecape Torment and Kotor 2, worked on Fallout 1, 2 and New Vegas. I think he was working for Troika at the time of Bloodlines too. He worked on other games but I don't know them. He also had a alter ego in Fallout 1, but I don't think it was by his choice.

Oh no! Avellone left Obsidian some time ago and I only know his name because he posted ugly things on RPGCodex on why he left and how Fergus is bringing Obsidian down. Check his comments in this thread:

Yeah it's Chris Himself. Nice find, I didn't notice it at all as I rarely deal with Giovanni's threesome quest. Yeah and it's sad that Both Feargus and Avellone was like the original founder of these legendary RPG game. Fallout 2, VTMB and New Vegas are the ones I did play and I will say their quality blows every 'mainstream' RPG out of water when it comes to scenario writing. And that means Obsidian (the current Troika/Black Isle) is now going down the drain without it's key peoples.

Unless a new Troika borns under Avellone's guidance! <3
