Cthulu is one of the elder gods, and is supposedly summoned with a spell from the Necronomicon!
I suspect at least one writer with KI is familiar with HP Lovecraft :)
I always wondered if Gretta Darkkettle is really the Wicked Witch of the West.
Don't know if someone already mentioned this, but the Halloween Scavenger Hunt is rife with allusions to ancient Halloween stories. Jack is an ancient trickster from early Scottish, Irish, and Appalachian American folklore, a cycle of stories known as "the Jack Tales". Jack in the Beanstalk is the one most of us have heard, but there are a couple hundred other Jack stories.
@ozzyrocker, Nice analysis of the Greek epics. I must not be the only one well-read in the classics of western literature :) Wonder if the ancient Sumerian stories will wend their ways into the Great Spiral?
So many stories, and the immensity of cyber space in which to explore them.
haha maybe we can add a character named Gilgamesh in a new district of Krokotopia??
Who's Gilgamesh? never heard of him before i think lol
Gilgamesh is the sorcerer in the movie: The Smurfs, that iss trying to get them and prove to everyone he's not crazy that there are blue "people" on the world of Earth
I got one for you. In the very beginning of your gaming, one of the first quests is that girl who stands outside the headmasters office. :) Remember her! :D Her name is, "Penny Dreadful" of the MB Dreadfuls. :-o "Penny Dreadfuls" is what they used to call "dime store novels". Ask your parents. tee hee. Marissa SparkleSinger lvl 59 Life
If you like easter eggs. The world of Avalon is based on the stories of King Arthur and Knights of Round Table. Read some of the books you may get some of the more obscure ones.
Gilgamesh is a Sumerian Epic (You should read it) No author Name lost to ages Song of Roland (Charleamagne and his peers) Unknown author The Illiad and The Odyssey by Homer Read Chaucer for King Arthur
These books directly influnesed the games, books, and recent authors.
In Avalon, the character "Page Jimmy" is a shout out to Jimmy Paige of Led Zepplin. As I think about these Easter Eggs, there are a lot of references to old songs and bands. None of which I can recall at the moment. :P
Fire Wizards will receive the quest “Firestarter” from Professor Dalia Falmea Ice Wizards will receive the quest "Misery" from Professor Lydia Greyrose Myth Wizards will receive the quest “Eyes of the Dragon” from Professor Cyrus Drake Storm Wizards will receive the quest “Hearts in Atlantis” from Professor Halston Balestrom Life Wizards will receive the quest “The Green Mile” from Moolinda Wu Death Wizards will receive the quest “Bag of Bones” from Dworgyn in Nightside Balance Wizards will receive the quest “It” from Alhazred in Krokosphinx
Here's one for Avalon, Anybody see a similarity between the Famori Giants, and the "gentle Mystics" from Jim Henson's Dark Crystal? With that in mind, the Ravens resemble the "cruel Skeksis" from the same. I would have to watch the movie again to catch any other eggs from this movie. My memory of it is so vague. I wonder if we'll ever see the Landstriders?
I'm actually surprised no one has noticed this: idk if this was intentional or not but the black and white dragons in avalon are actually the opposite "types" of the two dragons in Pokemon Black and White-white dragon ice(opposite of fire)black dragon myth(opposite of storm or electric) i thought this was kinda interesting.
