Special apperances.- Homages

Postby Dragonblessed_Pinkamena » Wed Aug 14, 2013 8:13 am

Often I wonder if the game has hidden hints, clues or notes on refrences to famous characters of video games or people from real life. I try to find them but so far nothing came up. Have you had better luck then me? Leave a reply on any refrences you may have seen thus far. Or maybe leave a reply on who you would like to be refrenced or hinted at in the game. It could be someone from a video game you like a lot. Like Sonic the hedgehog or a character from MLP

Karnak the Magnificent Quest

Majerio give the quest "Karnak the Magnificent" which references http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnac_the_Magnificent

P.S. Always read the title of Majerio's Quest, they are often the funniest in the game.

AIE Incursion Schedule

A podcast increased the number of BoH players:

The Podcast also resulted in a large number of AIE Guilds (edit: WoW players). As a homage, when Venan changed the Incursion Schedule from WVUV to Amber-Indigo-Emerald, they appear in AIE order.

I'm guessing the Were Chef was a homage to the awesome guild Warriors of the SPOON. Just read the description of the 'Golden Spoon'.

SPOON!

Also spoons are the rarest utensils, and paid the most rewards (1000 sc or 15 gs) when returned to Majerio's Shop.
