    Jorn... I think he's referring to the giants by the dragons, not the dragons themselves, because I do remember a giant named Jorn in gianthold... would have to check if Jorn was with one, but I vaguely remember that name alongside the blue or white one, I think...

    Probably a day late and a dollar short, but:

    There was a BBC TV show in the late '60s called Out of the Unknown. An early story (written by Asimov) called The Dead Past featured a device able to recapture any moment from the past called The Chronoscope.

    Many of the WF in House Cannith are named for pole-arms and the like.

    Fury of the Wild is a Hammerfall song.

    Razzrex from Dreams of Insanity reminds me (perhaps wrongly) of Racer X, another metal band.

    Earthshaker from the Depths of Doom is the name of an old adventure module.

    An in-game reference came from the old 3-barrel cove.
    -Charlotte the Scarlet (who appeared to be working for an escort service) asked if you've seen her friend Annelisa. -Annelisa is the lady PCs can save (or fight) in The Bounty Hunter, while Charlotte has seemingly improved her station in life and can be encountered in Delirium.
    -On a side note, The Keeper's Sanctuary features a very similar-looking person named Annelisa who is up to no good. Perhaps we're right to knock her off in the earlier encounter.

    on the page for the dust quest in the vale:

    "Let Sleeping Dust Lie" is a bit more obscure but most likely a reference to a track from Michael Schenker Group's 1981 album "MSG". The track is titled ""Let Sleeping Dogs Lie"

    hehe in the snitch in the dog part uses the actual reference too..."blah blah blah you might be able to let the sleeping dogs lie" - don't remember the entire phrase

    Also in a quest from harbinger chain, think in missing, you find a deceased party of adventurers behind a hidden door. I think it's a reference to the D&D cartoons (rembmer there is an acrobat there now, not the rest)

    Yeah it is. Acrobat's dead, Cavalier, Barbarian, Ranger, and Wizard, and I think Thief, too, were undead. Uni is absent, so maybe he escaped at least...

    Found a snowman in What Goes Up.

    Encountered by falling off a ledge unto a dead end cliff.
    Had to jump off and die to get back to adventuring.

    Default Waterworks

    Obvious one is Private Jake in Waterworks with Jake being slang for toilet.

    However first time I saw him I always wondered if there was a private joke in there, especially the way he talks about how important it is that someone does the job. Sort of thing some one would say to a developer when told to populate an area based on toilets filled with Kobolds.... not exciting but someone has to do it. Then again that could be just my mind working.

    Thief was nowhere to be seen as I recall, but it did mention that the dead acrobat's fatal wounds were in the back......

    The Sleeping Dogs reference here is more likely referring to Chaucer's 1374 work 'Troyius and Crisedye' where he said 'It is not good a sleeping hound to wake', or perhaps it is a reference to some of ****en's works since he used the phrase in some of them.

    Default Another Hidden Snowman

    I found a hidden snowman as well in 'The Deal And The Demon'. It's right below the orb that ends the quest.

    Found more draconic in the Crucible, the dragon heads you put the horns on.

    Test of Cunning- Vaerirenthisj = Dance Speak
    Test of Agility- Austratisk = Fly Star
    Test of Instinct- Levexorn = Enchant Silver
    Test of Endurance- Throdenvive = Many Victory

    On a side note, Vaeri the dancing kobold may wish you the blessings of the Darastrix. If he does this, he is wishing you the blessings of the Dragon. Enjoy!

    Not sure if this is intended but I am always reminded of Catch 22 and Snowden's death when Boro Charldon dies in Stromvauld's Mine.

    He says "I'm cold, why is it so cold Milos?"

    If he had said it to someone with a name like Yossarian rather than Milo I'd have said it was a definite Easter Egg.
