    They are also geeky people like most of us here. Theres indiana jones, star wars, black sabbath, Dio, Van Halen, Van Hellsing, Dante Alighieri, and a lot of movie and other videogame references around.

    I cant remember the post, but someone started a thread about all puns and references in DDO. "Don't go into the light!" is somewhere too I believe.

    "Hikari datte, yami datte, kitto"

    Into light, into darkness, surely.

    not all of which are music related:

    Xy'zzy is a cheatcode from a classic videogame (sans the ')

    Brinky and Pain (attack on stormreach rednames) is a nod to Pinky and the Brain

    there are MANY, many more

    see, the thing is, DDO is based on D&D, and D&D gamers, who are drawn to it, tend to belong to certain sub-cultures and demographics.
    having references in the game to those things that we love, is like having little easter-eggs in the game
    Xyzzy was a clue in the original "Colossal Cave" text based adventure from the days before any personal computers existed.

    Or cheatcodes, for that matter.

    I first encountered the game in 1977, on a DEC PDP-8.

    he has a bunch of death texts like "all has come to ruin" or something like that. But if what you are saying is correct, that is pretty epic given the artwork on that Maiden album.

    edit: Before somebody calls me out. Schenker was primarily a rhythm guitarist, but he played lead on a couple of songs on "Love at First Sting". Mathias Jabs was the main lead player.
    Rudy's brother is actually more well-known (Michael Schenker), and also helped found the Scorpions.

    Michael was also in UFO during the height of their popularity, and wrote some of the better known songs.

    he also subbed in another famous 80s metal band when one of their gutarists quit or was fired. I want to say Ratt, but I believe that was one of the guys from Night Ranger.
    Antipan, Pandargon, Pandolin, Panifin, Panmorgan, Pangrael, and all other things "pan-ed"...

    Here are a few I noticed. I think the Kim Bendix Petersen / King Diamond is the best reference i have noticed.
