    What are your favorite EQ Easter eggs?

    I have always been impressed with the depth of detail EQ provides and really enjoy the Easter eggs I occasionally stumble upon usually in the lore tabs but have seen them all over. The latest one I found was a reference to the Game of Thrones series in one of the descriptions for an overseer agent. Thanks whichever of you Devs that is a GoT fan!

    It's not an easter egg, but my favorite quest/lore/etc is the An Epic Request quest line. Being able to carry my epic (and the 1/2 of my choice) is probably the best thing ever added to the game.

    There's the earliest Easter Egg I can think of in EQ: the named rats in Dagnor's Caldron named Flotsam and Jetsam. That was the band Jason Newstead was in before replacing Cliff Burton as bassist of Metallica.

    My personal favorite egg I always liked was the TSS quest "Snakes on a Plain". Great pun ref

    Two sharks in Kedge Keep, "Cauldronboil and Cauldronbubble" after MacBeth
    Princess Lenia in High Keep saying "Aren't you a little short for a High Pass Guard"
    Two named Evil Eyes in Gorge are named Syrkil (circle) and Sviir (sphere)

    Not the biggest easter egg. But the two Bank NPC's in Katta Castrum named Lucius and Titus made me smile. (Reference to the two main characters from the Rome series)

    There is a named mob in Temple of Bertox "The Doctor", also ask Tavid about his watch.

    These are a little more obscure:

    Sholano <Rebel Sympathizer> in City of Bronze sells t4 raid gear

    They are anagrams of Lando Calrissian and Han Solo

    These threads pop up every couple of years or so. It would be kinda cool if Allah's, or Fanra's, or Almar's, etc.. would incorporate them somewhere for posterity. Something a bit more "alive" than Wayback machine searching, or some random geocities site that somehow still exists. There's a lot of Lore and general fun EQ info floating around in misc places. So much has already been lost with major sites closing up over the years.
