While doing nothing in particular a few minutes ago, I got to thinking of certain charming aspects of Forsaken world. One of which is all the little jokes and references to other forms of media and pop culture. I'll list the ones I can think of off the top of my head, though I'm sure there are many more :D

1. The time lord in nightfall NPC (Dr. Who)

2. The queen and her hand maidens in ToK: Krue, Ella, and queen Deville. (Cruella Deville, 101 Dalmations).

3. Patrick Ironwhip quoting Private Hudson from Aliens. ("You're on an express elevator to hell, going down!" Also: "If you like that, you're gonna love this")

4. First boss of Sickle island quoting The droid from Star wars Episode VI ("You're a feisty little one, but you'll soon learn some respect").

5.Last one I can think of, but it might be one of the more obscure ones. The sound clip that plays when a scarab pet runs behind you is ripped straight from the zerglings of the original starcraft :).

What other fun things have you guys found over the years?

    one of my favorites (that still exist... RIP "the pie is a lie") If "run with hanks" daily

    You start off by talking to Lieutenant Dan, he says "My feet, are fake!" then you find Hanks and following him are Woody, Miller, Turner, Wilson, Jenny, Joe

    Hanks- Tom Hanks
    LT. Dan- Forest Gump
    Woody- Toy Story
    Miller- Saving private Ryan
    Turner- Turner and Hooch
    Wilson- Cast Away
    Jenny- Forest Gump
    Joe- Joe Vs. the Volcano

    Game of Thrones or A Song of Ice and Fire references i think o.o
    The anni fash title, "Symphony of Frozen and Scorching," "Sonata of Ice and Fire" for example
    Not sure if intentional though o.o

    Also, the elf Galadriel from the lv80 questline shares race and name -and looks somewhat, besides gender difference- with a LOTR character
