    rush fan here, too.

    the critics were really rough on lee, can't dispute that.

    i think the screaming attribute might not be a negative though.

    I quite agree here. I've heard covers of Rush by "better" singers like James LaBrie of Dream Theater, and it seemed to me that the cleaner vocals actually hurt the song.

    I'd still pay large sums to get Rush to cover Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Iron Maiden to cover Xanadu, though.

    I never would have thought of the Pac-Man idea, but now that I've read it, I can't unread it. That is to say, I have to think you're right. That's awesome.

    The Skeleton miniboss in Litany of the dead is called Kai-Teng Fairuza. Kiting Fair Use, kiting him is one of the easier ways to beat him.

    Part 4 reminds me of Star Castle.

    You have the big guy in the middle who occasionally sends out little stars that float towards you (the blades), and then once the shields are down (the shields aren't really represented except after the first round with the gnolls), he blasts out a huge fireball shot (Delayed blast fireball).

    I think Part 3 is supposed to represent an old classic video game as well, but can't place what it might be, other than just a lights out hand-held LED game.

    Lights Out, with elements of Frogger, it seems to me.

    the music in the area around the bat rare encounter in the Vale of Twilight sounds suspiciously similar to something ive heard before.

    it could just be in my imagination though.

    that's not me playing by the way.

    the bucket in the quest "siegebreaker", once filled with "the unmentionable" (iirc) becomes named "Bucket of Destiny".

    the description reads: "You have a bucket filled with the unspeakable. It is bound for greatness, and its valiant tale will go down in history: a bucket that defeated an army! The smell alone is legendary."

    http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Item:Bucket_of_Destiny

    it's not really quite an easter egg or a pun, but... i figure it fits the general theme of the thread

    (on a side note, to further call out the Brinky and Pain conversation earlier in the thread, there are references to both zero wing (all your base are belong to us... except it says "someone set up us the...") and of course, Brinky and the Pain. i mean, Pinky and the Brain.

    Just noticed a brand new one in next week's sale page:http://www.ddo.com/ddostoresale

    the coupon code for the free guild elixir is DMGMM1 which is a mashup of DMG (Dungeon Master's Guide) and MM1 (Monster Manual 1)

    clearly an homage to classic pnp D&D

    You have to kill Cavalier, Ranger, Magician, and Barbarian. You can find a dead Acrobat. Only thing missing from the 80s cartoon is the Thief.

    Doctor Will Ewe Rushmore

    "Will you rush more?"

    Apt name, fitting his challenge.

    As much as I love Mentok the Mindtaker, Mentau the Fleshmaker is a reference to the Mentos commercials from the mid-80's.

    Conjoined Abishai Devastador fusion dance is a homage to Voltron.

    Don't forget you can see Velah talking about invading the Vault of Night in the Bogwater tavern with her dwarf lover. Also, she appear on Chronoscope too, talking about breaking into the vault.
    Main: Amossa d'Cannith, Sarlona, casually trying Completionist [<o>]

    Almost-never-played-alts: Arquera - Chapolin - Fabber - Herweg - Mecanico - Tenma

    I want DDO to be a better game. Those are my personal suggestions on: Ammunition, Archmage, Combat Stances, Deities, Dispel Magic, Epic Destiny Map, Fast Healing, Favor, Favored Enemy, Half-elf Enhancements, Monk Stances, Past Life, Potency, Potions, Ranger Spells, Summons, Tiered Loot.
