    Default Easter Eggs and Puns in DDO

    Has there been a list of all of the Easter Eggs and Puns people have found in DDO? I've only found one thread so far mentioning the name of a Rakshasa in Let Sleeping Dust Lie. There's of course Mentau the Fleshmaker.

    The reason I ask is that I just discovered one today that was new to me: Xy'zzy, the boss in Hound of Xoriat is also the password used in what is likely the original computer game Adventure. XYZZY was entered at the beginning of the game to transport the player into the caves bypassing much of the initial stages of the game.

    If there's already a thread, I'd be happy to drop this there, otherwise maybe we should make a comprehensive list as they are discovered.

    In Lord of Eyes, in the water elemental room, if you talk to the NPC he talks about not crossing the streams.

    Running with the devils Quest in the vale .... Van Halen song.

    In undermine, running trying to save yourself from a giant boulder (Raiders of the lost Ark)

    The divine item sets of Hound and VoD.... Ann Velsing? (mentions Ann Velsing was a famous undead and vampire hunter so its obviously a Van Hellsing reference)

    and Rainbow in the Dark is a Dio song.

    Ghosts of Perdition is a (heavy/hard rock) song as well, but I don't know which was named first.

    No no... Everyone knows Rainbow in the Dark was a tribute to my rogue "Inthedark Takemdown".

    To be honest, I dont' know what possessed me to name him that, but it did predate the quest. :-)

    There is an NPC in Caverns of Koromor named Axelrod Gunnerson which is very similar to a Magic: The Gathering card named Axelrod Gunnarson from the Legends expansion. The Legends expansion is widely known to have been based on a long running PnP D&D campaign played by the designer of the set.

    I always thought of that as more of an Axel from Guns 'n Roses tribute.

    Also in House K., there is a dwarf guard named Ravnika, apparently named after Magic: the Gathering set Ravnica: City of Guilds.

    Another M:tG reference and/or homage is the look of the Envenomed Cloak. It's very very similar to Jace's cloak.

    ARN-01D in Made to Order

    I think Valdus in the Dead Shall Rise is a reference to the Farscape villian Maldus (Could be coincidence though) But, the similarities between the stories of their lairs is suspicious.

    You utter the words “Come with me if you want to live.” (Now, it’s both a Terminator and Chuck reference.) in the quest “The Bookbinder Rescue”.

    Kobolds are full of pop culture references.

    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for wildshape!
    • Redo the Favor rewards so there is a reason to do max favor again.
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Task Lynnabel with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.
    • Finishing the enhancement tree passes (including racial PrE’s) before rolling out yet another DDOStore™ Enhancement Tree.

    Can't you also say something like "Wait here...I'll be back"?

    That version is kind of generic. Though an “I’ll be back” reference is more apparent in Made to Order.

    Default Happy happy.

    The Crystal Cove Tricorne grants over 9000 skull factor.

    It's so nice to see a thread that isn't negative!
