"Spin Me Right Round" in Elissa's Tomb is a reference to the song by the same name by the 80's band, Dead or Alive.

"Heart of Darkness", the quest to Mirror Lake, is a reference to the novel of the same name by Joseph Conrad.

Dang, these Zafaria references are getting pretty sophisticated.

Kudos to the Easter Egg genuises at Kings Isle

I've noticed a lot of these types of references. One of the quests is called "In the Name of Pride." A spin off of U2's album Pride with the single In the Name of Love.

Then I just noticed the quest, "Bulls on Parade." Rage Against the Machine has a song with the same title.

Here are some:

-There is a quest Rock of Ages, which is also the name of my favorite video game.

-Tomb sweet Tomb (quest name) is just a spin of Home Sweet Home. That one is more obvious though.

-The quest Lioness Sleeps Tonight is a refrence to a song which has lyrics: In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight...

- There are also countless puns like: Lion around, Wild Zorses, and many more

Two new references:

"Give It Away Now" is the title of a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

"Fire Walk with Me", my level 68 spell quest, is a reference to the t.v show "Twin Peaks".

How fun!

"Cause I'm wanted! Dead or a-live!!!"
