i am thrilled over the amount of easter eggs you manage to add to a game, so i got a small idea for another There is a bear in Mirkholm Keep, named Sigurd Battleblade i have wondered about his name, Sigurd Fåvsbane is a character in norse litterature where he killed someone named Fåvne and some other people, brutal, i know, but pride was the currency back then...
so i wondered if you can change the name to Sigurd Fightbane, Fight for Fåvne and bane for, well its right there... then he will be a more obvious (to some of us) and it's not that big change, but makes it better :)
i read th whole thing and i cant believe you didnt find this one.
firstly doesnt the mallistaire story(except for the part he does it all to bring his wife back)remind you of something.
i just got it harry potter! listen merle ambrose-proffesor dumbledoor cyrus drake-obviously snape mallistaire drake-voldermort and us-pretty much related to harry potter in a few ways

Has anyone noticed the similarities between Pigswick and Harry Potter? The spiral cup-> the triwizard cup. The visitors from other schools. Something weird happening to the cup, being stolen-> turned into a port key. Not to mention the British accents!
I don't know if this is similar to the game or not, but it seemed like it. In Star Wars Clone Wars there is a planet name Malastare, which I though was similar to Malistare.
I noticed this too. It first appeared as a mentioned name in The Phantom Menace. But, I don't think it was the reasoning for it. Here are a few things i've thought of to explain Malistaire's name: Malice-Stare: Malicious Stare Maul-Ice-Stairs: Makes no sense, but sounds creepy.
Anyone notice Sobacca and Hannibal Onetusk in Zafaria? For those who didn't (And for people who nevr saw Star Wars) I'll break it down:
Hannibal Onetusk: Remove the -nibal from his first name. One can also be described as alone, or solol. Thus we have Han Solo. For Sobacca: He's furry. He roars when you first meet him. His name ends in -bacca. Chewbacca time!
Page Jimmy in Abbey Road (Page Jimmy = Jimmy Page of the band Led Zeppelin, Abbey Road - reference to Beatles' album of Abbey Road and their Recording studio) gives a quest to you to search for a sword called Zoso. Zoso is the name of Led Zeppelin's 4th album, also is a symbol that the band designated to refer to the lead Robert Plant, which explains the significance of the sword and Jimmy's attachment to it (why it is so important he get it back - referring to his close personal relationship with the band's lead singer)
He also awards you with a wand called the Greater Paul after you complete a quest for the Greater Paul and the Lesser Paul, which refers to an early electric guitar designer, Les Paul.
Zeke's quests relate to band names: - Wizard City: the Smiths - Grizzleheim: the Yardbirds - Krokotopia: the Beatles - Marleybone: The Stray Cuts (Quest: Stray Cat Strut) - MooShu: Blue Oyster Cult (quest name) - DragonSpyre: Stone Roses (may reference Stone Temple Pilots) - Celestia: Lounge Lizards (New York jazz band, possibly obtained from the video Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards) - Wisteria: Wall Flowers - Hrundle Fjord: The Troggs - Avalon: Black Crows (band Black Crowes - there is a quest in there called Shake Your Money Maker, also refers to an Album by the Black Crowes, which doubles as a James Brown song reference as well)
