Missing Pauldron

There is an armory shop in New Sheoth called "The Missing Pauldron." Could this possibly be a reference to the fact that there are no longer pauldrons in this game? (as opposed to Morrowind) --Sigaven 17:20, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Could also be a reference to the fact that with out-of-the-box Morrowind, you were not able to complete a set of Daedric Armor, due to the fact that the Daedric Right Pauldron was not included in the game world (although it was accessable via console/construction set).
Not technically true. While neither the Right nor Left Pauldron (or the Cuirass for that matter) was available for free anywhere in the game (prior to the expansions, which made all of them available), you could always get the complete set by either killing or Disintegrate Armor/pickpocketing Divayth Fyr. --TheRealLurlock Talk 10:40, 31 March 2007 (EDT)

The Dog?

The dog you get from getting rid of the Khajiit, could it be a joke towards the dog you're going to get in Fable 2 (the game that is frequently compared to with Oblivion)? 71.234.113.189 20:07, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Never thought of that - could be - just wish they made it essential so that it only went unconscious. Thing only lasted <5 mins before it got lost. Really shame I enjoyed its decayed little pathetic self Pferris 18:44, 4 April 2007 (EDT)

Passwall

Just wondering if it should be added, but it seems that the town of Passwall is a pretty clear reference to the spell of the same name in Arena. Simple 03:39, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

I assume this is because in order to get past the wall you need to visit Passwall. Get it? --68.249.202.76 01:35, 31 March 2007 (EDT)
I agree with above. Its just The name of the town to get PASt the WALL. -Lordsword 8 13:24, 15 April 2007 (EDT)

Don't have the game, but I heard about a 300 reference

Specifically "MADNESS? THIS! IS! SPARTA!" Apparently this is at the Altar of Maya? Someone may want to look into it--71.7.100.5 01:02, 31 March 2007 (EDT)

Shivering Isles release date - March 26 2007. 300 (movie) release date - March 9 2007. Just pointing that out to mention how unlikely it is. Not to mention.. I have no idea where the Altar of Maya is, or what it does. 69.64.3.68 07:46, 27 April 2007 (EDT)
Comic release date? Remember, the movie's based on a(n amazing) comic by Frank Miller. Somercy 11:53, 30 April 2007 (EDT)
You have to remember that the (unbelievably well put together) trailer for the film was out almost, if not more than, a year prior to the film's release. That line was well talked about in the bowels of the internet during that time as well. While I personally don't think it's in the game, as someone would have confirmed this by now and I have no idea what the crap the "Altar of Maya" is, it's more than possible that it could have been. I remember it being one of the first things I read here in Talk and being really excited about finding it but alas, dookie. The original comment was made literally the day the game out so was most likely just a hoax/rumor the poster heard somewhere. --AlbinoMudcrab 02:23, 16 May 2007 (EDT)

Removed entry

While reorganizing the page, I took out one entry:

In the quest The Great Divide, you have the opportunity to solve the problem by killing one of the double. Many users of the XBOX version of Morrowind GOTY experienced the spawning of a copy of each NPC in the game when they used this version on their Morrowind only game saves.

I don't see that this is at all a reference to Morrowind's doubling NPC glitch. That glitch is first of all caused specifically by dirty mods, and does not happen in the un-modded game. Secondly, I seriously doubt it's an actual reference. It's just way too much of a stretch. There was a glitch in Morrowind, true, but I don't think that Bethesda would want you to remember that by drawing attention to it in this way. Just seems a little far-fetched. --TheRealLurlock Talk 22:25, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

I agree that it's a stretch to think the town is a reference to a glitch. But just for the record, I don't think many XBox players had the pleasure of polluting their save games with dirty mods, did they? I think the actual glitch was, like the quote says, a result of loading Morrowind-only saves when playing Morrowind GOTY. --67.110.209.218 04:08, 30 April 2007 (EDT)

Beards

Of course, I'm going off my memory here, but on one of the higher rises (If I remember correctly, to the east of Split) there was a stone building outcropping with a leveled creature and some bodies. One of these bodies was named .. something about Sheogorath's Punished or Executed. On his body was a note that said exactly why he had been put to death by Sheogorath - for attempting to grow a beard. I figure, like M'aiq the Liar, it's just a nod to things they didn't do that caused people to complain

Could also be a reference to the fact that Sheogorath is one of the few characters in any of the games who HAS a full beard. (Off-hand the only other one I can think of is Yagrum-Bagarn, the dwarf from Morrowind.) Other people occasionally have stuble or 5-o'clock shadow, but nobody really has beards... --TheRealLurlock Talk 19:10, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
Wasn't there beards in Morrowind? I haven't played in awhile so I can't remember.... -- Chaos Monkey Talk 03:57, 16 May 2007 (EDT)

yes some of the races have a beard such as one of the dunmer faces and i'm not really sure but i think that some others faces have beards--GUM!!! 13:14, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Uncle Leo

I really dont know if this is a egg but its cool.Muurine from The Lady of Paranoia quest go in her house and go upstairs and you'll find uncle loe or he was hes a zombie now but he wont attack you its just pretty cool check it out.

yes, if you talk to her before you kill her in the quest if you ask her about rumors she wil say someting about Uncle Leo losing an arm. Im not sure if he really is missing an arm but I beleive he is. -corevette78964.136.27.226 18:17, 11 May 2009 (EDT)

yeah he is missing a arm--GUM!!! 13:16, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

All I know is that he is referenced in Falllout 3, as one of the only two friendly super mutants is called Uncle Leo. 79.65.8.160 15:17, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Gnarls Barkley? Really?

I think that entry should be removed. I mean, the only thing they have in common is the name (after a stretch) and the fact that the song is called "Crazy". Any attempts to apply the lyrics directly to the events of the game are purely subjective, and without proof that the developpers did it intentionally, it's nothing but conjecture. Gnarls are a creature made of wood, of course they have bark. Gnarl Bark does not necessarily have anything to do with Gnarls Barkley. It's more likely Gnarls Barkley chose his name to be wood-themed, and Bethesda chose the name for the creatures entirely independantly. --TheRealLurlock Talk 13:56, 8 April 2007 (EDT)

What's the deal with the Split/Croatia reference, did I miss something in the world of the Elder Scrolls? I think this should be removed as well, unless a previous game took place in Croatia or something I just don't know about. --AlbinoMudcrab 00:22, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Yeah, I'd agree on that one. And I'd also like to see actual source of the "The development team definitively stated in an interview with OXM that this was a Gnarls Barkley reference-- that was the dev name for the Gnarls." claim. Give a link to the article or something. But I'd say definitely remove "Split". Just too unlikely. The town is called "Split" because it is literally split between the two halves, like New Sheoth, Passwall, and all of Shivering Isles are split. I'd honestly be surprised if anyone at Bethesda had even heard of the Croatian city. --TheRealLurlock Talk 00:34, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Removed Split reference, just way too random, and as explained by Lurlock, there's really no mystery as to why the town is named Split. Lets not forget the citizens that live their either. As far as Gnarls Barkley, I've heard at least three different people mention reading this in an interview. None can furnish a link, nor have I been successful in finding one, it's possible it might be on an video podcast interview OXM did, but I didn't have the time to go through it nor did I exhaust searching methods looking for it. I will admit it was the first thing I thought of when I saw 'Gnarl Bark' when starting the Isles and I remember thinking "I wonder how long this is gonna take to show up on Easter Eggs". Until a link can be provided, honestly it's just hearsay and "seems" familiar. --AlbinoMudcrab 01:57, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
I don't think Gnarles Barkley chose their name because of a reference to wood, rather as a parody on Charles Barkley (although they deny it and say it was a combination of ficticious celebrity names). I don't think it's that much of a stretch to suggest although it could easily be a cooincidence. Grandmaster z0b 02:13, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

Someone had added "*no one seems to notice that spriggans drop Taproot, also the name of a popular rock band." to the Gnarls Barkley section. Seeing as spriggans only appear in the main game and not the expansion, I'm moving the comment here to the discussion page and off of the article.

Not to mention Spriggans were in Bloodmoon too. Only there they dropped Belladonna Berries or sometimes Heartwood. --TheRealLurlock Talk 18:33, 30 April 2007 (EDT)
There's a band called 'Spriggan Taproot'? --AlbinoMudcrab 23:36, 30 April 2007 (EDT)
There's a band called 'Taproot', but then, there's also a plant root system called 'Taproot'. No proof that Bethesda was thinking of the band and not the plant-parts when they came up with that. (Personally I'd never heard of the band until I searched Wikipedia for it, but then I'm not up on what these young whippersnappers are listening to these days on their newfangled gadgets...) And I'd still like to see some documented source on the Gnarls Barkley claim. --TheRealLurlock Talk 10:00, 1 May 2007 (EDT)
  • On the case of music, Could the quest "Everything in Its Right Place" be a reference to the Radiohead song?Jas1n 19:44, 21 April 2008 (EDT)

Agree to disagree, but keep discussion in discussion page

The wording for this "easter egg" is overwrought. There are some users who feel it is a deliberate reference to Gnarles Barkley, and others who do not. I haven't seen anything that definitively proves either point, so the most accurate and concise thing to put on the page should be something along the lines of (emphasis mine):

Gnarl Bark ... may be a reference to the pop group Gnarls Barkley

I've seen Supporting points as to "why" or "why not" placed on the main page. These belong discussion page, not the main page.

Shoes on rooftops?

I've hear a rumour that after watching the review of Oblivion by the Consolevania show Bethesda put a pair of boots on a rooftop in the Shivering Isles like someone's thrown them up there. Can someone tell me if this is true?

Hm...that's a bit vague. There are lots of random things on the rooftops of Crucible, you may want to try checking there. --Sigaven 12:03, 15 April 2007 (EDT)
It's probably someone mistaking it for a reference then. Thanks!

Another Questionable Egg

Can anyone confirm 'Little Bones', I haven't seen any specially named bones in the Isles and certainly not on the roofs of Crucible. I know there are "new" bones in the expansion that would resemble animal bones rather than Oblivion's human bones, but they're still just called 'Bones' and taking them doesn't seem to procure anything special/mentionable. I also haven't come across, or heard of, anywhere that you can "put them together for a little skeleton body", what would this do exactly even if it could be found and the skeleton completed? --AlbinoMudcrab 23:54, 20 April 2007 (EDT)

One of the few items thats at the Museum of Oddities at the start of the game is a pygmy skull. The same 3-D mesh as a regular human skull, only scaled down in size. While I don't recall seeing other scaled down examples of the existing bone meshes, it might be worth it to check in the Construction Set for them. If they were in the game and you were able to collect a complete set, putting them together wouldn't "do" anything, it'd just be a work of clutter art for the purpose of showing off a complete collection.65.14.2.104 15:51, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

Yes the Pygmy Skull was the only reason I haven't brought up the question until now. When I originally read the Little Bones egg it was the first thing I thought of (for surely this was what it spoke of). But I've spent considerable time in the Isles now and I've seen nothing to support the claim. Interacting/stealing the skull from the museum initiates nothing as well. I don't have the CS installed, give it a few and someone else who does will respond. --AlbinoMudcrab 01:41, 22 April 2007 (EDT)

Found a full scaled down skeleton in Vitharn draped on the hands of a Grummite statue. It's a static, so there are no 'Little Bones' that you can take with you, but it is an example of pygmy bone structure outside of what is shown in the museum. Have screenshot, will upload later tonight.65.14.2.104 05:11, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
Turns out my roommate uploaded the screenshot this morning while I was at work. He wanted to share it with the official forums: Small Skeleton Screenshot
He's of the opinion that its a child and not a pygmy, but there was dissension on the forums over the status. Either way, the skull in the screenshot is a different size than the one in the museum.65.14.2.104 20:48, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

Your roommate is correct, it's the skeleton of a child. It can be found in a few different places in regular Oblivion (Cyrodiil), so it isn't one of the new objects we're looking for. Here's a good screenshot of the Night Mother's Tomb in Bravil that has a bunch of the child skeletons lying around it. I still don't know, I say we should give it another week or two and if nothing can be found then remove the egg. --AlbinoMudcrab 23:34, 30 April 2007 (EDT)

You can get some 'little' bones, there is a skull in Earil's Mysteries
there are some small bones on top of a building in cruicible that are surrounded by some feathers and a knife i guess to make it look like someone killed a bird — Unsigned comment by 76.240.205.119 (talk) at 00:25 on 24 June 2010
See a little further down at Bird Crash. Robin Hoodtalk 20:18, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Pestering Haskill

If he has special dialog for being pestered repeatedly, then his entry should actually say that. If he doesn't, then how is it an easter egg that you can cast lesser powers more than once? --67.110.209.218 04:10, 30 April 2007 (EDT)

He does have unique dialogue each repeated time you summon him (although I don't know how long it goes on for, awhile by my game), but none of it is anything other than amusing. I'd say 50/50 on removing it. It's no more of an egg than New Sheoth Graveyard (amusing and unique again), but some might not think to continually summon him for laughs. Many players get into the game very intensely and don't exhaust/explore little things like this so there's a good possibility many might not know about it. However, I do agree that it isn't really much of an egg. --AlbinoMudcrab 19:06, 2 May 2007 (EDT)

Spoiler Warning.

"otherwise the Jyggalag page may contain spoilers"

And here I'd thought we weren't going to use spoiler warnings. This is from the entry on the poem with capital letters, and I'm about to delete the line, unless someone has reason to keep it. Somercy 11:49, 30 April 2007 (EDT)

I put it there because the Jyggalag page is one of, if not the, biggest spoiler you can read about the expansion. I'm not sure where not using spoilers was discussed, although I'm sure it was due to the warning appearing suddenly on the Main page, but I vote that it should be kept in this case. The Jyggalag "spoiler warning" also appears on Creatures and possibly another page. I know of a few editors, myself included, that were quite upset by accidentally coming across the spoiler so I opted for the warning. Essentially, I don't think it matters as the spoiler is on Jyggalag, Jyggalag Tamriel, Sheogorath, Greymarch, and Forces of Order to name a few. I personally have removed the spoiler from about five or six random Shivering articles that mentioned it for no reason, but frankly I think it's a losing battle.
Personally, I feel it should 100% be kept, but I also realize we try and follow a set standard. Just because someone is looking for information on the series doesn't mean they need that particular slice shoved unknowingly in their face, honestly it's too big. If they choose to read ahead about quests they haven't done then expect a massive spoiler, but when confirming a discovery or help with being stuck in a quest, it's undeserving. I feel the line could be worded better though. Why haven't the spoiler temps been removed if we're not using them either, it's misleading. However, I'm sure this point was discussed already and I'm not trying to rehash it, but I feel at least some other editors should put in their opinions before removing it. --AlbinoMudcrab 18:59, 2 May 2007 (EDT)
I feel the same way. I stumbled on it too, needless to say I was pretty PO'd. Perhaps a standard needs to be set? -- Chaos Monkey Talk 04:04, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
Yes, I unfortunately ran across the major plot points somewhere on UESP, too. I say you should keep it on any page that might reveal something about Jyggalag or Sheogorath. GameSageZB 17:44, 17 July 2008 (EDT)

Treasure Trove in the Woods

I found an interesting ruin out in the woods in SI. It isn't a landmark, so it isn't listed on the map, but you can find it at the easternmost point on the map (not counting the two small islands off the coast in the Injaen Sea). I found three boss-level chests there (levelled, I assume); a hollow stump, an urn, and a regular chest behind them. Xeagle51 00:59, 11 May 2007 (EDT)xeagle51

Can you put a link that shows where?Drake3555 22:03, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
His directions are pretty good. If you look at the hump of land just north of the two islands he describes, you'll find the three containers he mentions. To be specific, it's in Wilderness cell 16, 10.
The three containers do indeed contain levelled loot, as Xeagle51 thought. I've come across other unmarked ruins elsewhere in SI too, so I don't think this counts as an egg in any way, just abandoned ruins for "decoration". --Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 02:19, 31 May 2008 (EDT)
I was having trouble finding it before. Sorry!Drake3555 14:48, 31 May 2008 (EDT)
I found it now! Was lookin in the south side instead of East...Drake3555 09:20, 2 June 2008 (EDT)
However, since the ruins are meant to be old settlements or cities, and none of the NPCs really know that, shouldn't that be a bit of an easter egg? All the island unmarked ruins that could be the ruins of (Old) New Sheoth? GameSageZB 17:47, 17 July 2008 (EDT)
That's an interesting thought. They certainly could be that, but they could just be natural ruins, too. I don't think there's anything in the game that gives an indication as to the time between each incarnation of the Shivering Isles. --Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 17:16, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Lettuce and Yarn

There's a female kajiit somewhere in New Sheoth whose house has three display cases, one each for lettuce, yarn, and a soul gem. If busts of Sheogorath having lettuce and yarn count as easter eggs, than surely this does. I don't remember her name, function, or even which side of the city she was in, though, so I can't really add it to the article. Anyone else know who it was?

Also, sorry I forgot to sign that. --67.110.213.253 18:56, 13 May 2007 (EDT)

Ajzhada from The Coming Storm has a place like that.Drake3555 14:49, 31 May 2008 (EDT)

Is this really an Easter Egg?

This is from the main page, but it doent seem much of an egg though, so i've moved it here for discussion. -Lordsword 8 12:23, 16 May 2007 (EDT)

There is a flawless pearl lying on the porch roof of Common Treasures on the small ledge that wraps around the north of the building. The best way to get to this is from the roof of the Missing Pauldron which can be reached from the balcony next to it.

Ho Chi Minh...

Removed that insanely farfetched Ciirta-Ho Chi Minh reference. >_< Kurai-sama 12:27, 20 May 2007 (GMT +3)

Something missing?

There seem to be no female Orcs, Nords and Redguards in the Shivering Isles. At least I haven't found any. This is probably due to not having any dialogue voiced for those races. Does this fit into the Easter Egg section?

There's one Redguard in Bliss, who tells you he's the only one when you talk to him. Also, I believe two of Split's mirrored inhabitants are Nords. Xeagle51 04:00, 11 June 2007 (EDT)
Although the Redguard in Bliss is wrong if he claims to be the only one. Pyke for example is also a Redguard. Category:Shivering-Redguard, Category:Shivering-Nord, and Category:Shivering-Orc list all the NPCs of each of those races in SI. --NepheleTalk 08:47, 11 June 2007 (EDT)
I think the poster above ment that there are no female Orcs, female Nords, and female Redguards in the Shivering Isles Twentyfists 21:29, 23 January 2008 (EST)

"Fight Club" in Crucible?

What is this referring to? "In Crucible there are all sorts of strange items on the roofs of the buildings. In addition to the local Fight Club, you will find various articles of..." — Unsigned comment by 75.57.252.195 (talk)

The second bullet in "Non-Elder Scrolls References" details the goings-on of the Crucible Duellists. And remember to go for the knees... —Dark Spark 01:58, 9 April 2008 (EDT)

Sheogorath Egg?

It's weak, I'll be the first to admit, which is why I'm posting this on the talk page, but when Sheogorath says "You wouldn't like me when I'm bored", it has much the same pacing and intonation as the famous "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry" from the Bill Bixby version of The Hulk. Are there any other references that might lead anybody to think that this might be deliberate? (Or would some other old-timer out there like to second my opinion, in which case I'll move it to the main SI Easter Egg page?) --Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 00:15, 26 April 2008 (EDT)

I'd wondered about that myself so I'd have to agree with you. Oddly, I had remembered the line as "You wouldn't like me when I'm mad" rather than angry, but Wikipedia says you're right. –RpehTCE 03:59, 30 April 2008 (EDT)
That doesn't sound unfamiliar, so either it's one of those misquoted things that was never actually said (like "Beam me up, Scotty") or he actually did say it that way at some point during the series, but the other one became more popular. Given that I have a seconder, I'll move it to the main page. If someone feels strongly that it's too questionable, they can always bump it back here. :) --Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 11:51, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

2 More Possible Eggs

I'm am not 100 percent sure these are eggs, but here you go:

1. Hirrus Clutumnus sounds very similar to Bender from the show Futurama. Don't know if it is the same person voicing him, or just a mere coincidence, considering Bender is pretty Demented most of the time.

2. If you walk along the mountain range that is just north of New Sheoth, at the highest point(and possibly the closest point to New Sheoth) there is a statue/bust (it has a large rectangular prisym base with a waist-up armless statue of a man) that looks similar to the ones found in the houses in New Sheoth. Just thought it was kinda cool that this marks the highest point in the Isles, but it is not Shoegorath. Also, there is a good view of pretty musch the entire Island from up there.--Blktiger0 09:17, 21 June 2008 (EDT)

Bender was voiced by John DiMaggio. While he has provided voice work for other games (Gears of War, VtM: Bloodlines), he hasn't voiced any characters in Oblivion/Shivering Isles. —Dark Spark 03:51, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
For the statue in New Sheoth, I'd say it's possible that it's an egg, but it's also possible it's just plain part of the storyline. In the construction set, there's nothing clearly special about it. It's named "TorturedStatue01", leading me to believe that perhaps this is just meant to be some limbless tortured soul that Sheogorath thought it would be fun to turn into a statue to watch over his land forever or some such thing. Then again, this is in Wilderness Cell 7 11, so maybe it's a depiction of the cashier at the local 7/11. Who knows? Without solid evidence, though, we can't really put anything on the main page. --Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 16:43, 25 June 2008 (EDT)

Symbols of Office?

I don't know whether or not this goes here, but in the Grove of Reflection, when you face the clone of yourself, this battle is strikingly similar to the battle with Dark Link the Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time, even down the point that it is surrounding a lone tree in a pool of water. Does this need adding? Or is it already there and have I missed it? It's clearly a reference to the game. - Modryn05 13:06, 19 October 2008 (EDT)

The "Battle with yourself" is a common and recurring theme in fiction and games. There's no need to mention one specific instance. –RpehTCE 13:29, 19 October 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I guess it is now I think about it. Ok then. - Modryn05 02:12, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

Bird Crash

On one of the roofs in Crucible, there is a spot with a bunch of quills and bones on the roof, indicating a bird crashed there. There is also a potion of feather in the middle. — Unsigned comment by 68.40.107.78 (talk) at 01:07 on 7 February 2009

That's an interesting point...despite how obvious it is, I don't remember ever picking up on the connection before. I'll have to go have a look at it next time I'm in SI.
Oh and I'm assuming that the person who modified the post was the originator of the post, but if not, it's a matter of courtesy not to modify someone else's post except sometimes for broken links and the like. --Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 17:51, 9 May 2009 (EDT)
Actually, the bird didnt crash. There is a knife next to it and a couple small bones there, indicating that someone got up there and sacrificed a bird for whatever their maniacle reason was.75.120.49.245 18:06, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
what roof is it on? i want to see this for myself — Unsigned comment by 142.68.110.192 (talk) on 3 March 2010
I can't remember, but really, just jump on top of a house and hop from roof to roof till you find it. It's not like Crucible is huge. --SerCenKing Talk 09:22, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
It's on the roof of Brithaur's House. Robin Hoodtalk 20:18, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Moved Easter Egg

When talking to Grakedrig Ulfri during the quest The Cold Flame of Agnon he informs you that you will soon 'find yourself between a Mazken and his prey', which sounds very similar to the famous line from The Lord of the Rings: 'Do not come between a Nazgul and his prey.'

I just moved this off of the page mainly because of the general nature of the saying. While it is said in Lord of the Rings, it is also said of lions, bears, eagles, etc. in our world. I don't think it is a true easter egg. --Elliot talk 23:53, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Helix Nebula

I don't know if this is worthy of being called an easter egg but there is a nebula in the sky, I think specifically the Helix Nebula. Sadly, being a PS3 guy I don't have a pic, but at the very least the Helix Nebula instantly sprang to mind. The colours of the nebula really stand out against the violet/pink of the remaining SI sky so it's not too hard to spot. It would be interesting to think what it says about the ES universe if there are cosmological phenomena beyond the regular sun/moon/stars in a daedric realm. — Unsigned comment by 93.186.20.172 (talk) on 27 September 2009

This is decoration, how would this be an Easter Egg? --Timenn-<talk> 12:32, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Blackadder references

I caught a few references to the third season of the British comedy series Blackadder in the Sheogorath Haskil relationship. The person in charge is a crazy/stupid (they wind up looking rather similar) person who wears rich clothes of purple with gold thread, their butler/chamberlain wears red and black with stockings and is very sarcastic.

Also, Sheogorath remarks that Haskil has more brains than a brain pie, which is something Prince George says in Nob and Nobility (Ask Blackadder; he's brighter than a brain pie!)

Am I reading too much into this, or is this an Easter Egg? — Unsigned comment by 70.16.110.87 (talk) on 26 January 2010

It wouldn't be an Easter Egg, but simply a reference.
I don't think it's a reference either. The relationship between the characters differs significantly. Sheogorath is far from naive, and Haskill appears to genuinely serve him. Unlike Blackadder, Haskill is not a butler, and doesn't pursue plots on his own. That, and I believe duo's with contrasting personalities is a very common theme in all prose. --Timenn-<talk> 11:33, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Since when does a refernece have to be a one to one resemblence? I should think it enought that tehy're similar; they don't have to be exactly the same. If they were, it'd be plagarism, not a nodding reference.— Unsigned comment by 70.16.110.87 (talk) on 6 May 2010

Bird Potion

I entered a miscellaneous easter egg regarding the quills, bones, knife and potion of feather on top of a roof in crucible, but it was deleted. Does this mean it's not an easter egg, or was it deleted simply because there are so many things like that on Crucible roofs? (Such as an altar with a failed potion of water breathing, which has Scales, a Knife, and an empty cup on it)? — Unsigned comment by 79.65.8.160 (talk) on 13 April 2010

Not an easter egg; see here. --SerCenKing Talk 07:43, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Monty Python

Guys, i'm pretty sure that these aren't Monty Python references. I believe that the Argonian is making the sounds because they sound like an airplane, or simply because she is mad. I'm sure that it's not referencing Monty Python though, or there would be more of a connection. --InvertedWalrus

She distinctly says "Ni" when she doesn't get the items she wants which is said by the knights who say Ni on the Search for the Holy Grail- they too say it when Arthur and Bedevere don't do what they want, so there is a distinct connection here. I'm not sure if airoplanes have been invented in the Shivering Isles yet :P--81.158.17.1 12:25, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
kk I guess you're right. I've only ever seen a crummy youtube video of her, so my theory doesn't pull much weight.--InvertedWalrus
