Question by Pen fighter: What are some cool things to do in skyrim?
Can you tell me some good quests or Easter eggs
Answer by Madison
well these are some easter eggsthat might or might not interest you.
~300 Reference If you head just south of the Shrine to Peryite, only small journey west of Karthwasten, North-North East of the Lover Stone, you will come across a skeleton (about halfway up the mountain). If you look just to the side of the skeleton you will see a sabre cat stuck between two rocks with a glass sword through its mouth and head. This is a reference to the scene in 300 where Leonidas leads a wolf to a narrow passage then stabs it through the mouth with a spear.
~At night along roads you have a chance of encountering a spectral horseman
without a head galloping along at full tilt. He carries an axe on his back, which is likely a reference to Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". If you follow him, he eventually takes you to Hamvir's Rest, where there are several skeletons to fight and a Master chest.
~During A Night to Remember one of the tasks is to obtain a wedding ring from a hagraven named Moira who will say "My precious" while trying to get the ring from her, in reference to Gollum.
~The Broken Steel Sword Handle in Angarvunde is another reference to this series. Its location (next to a skeleton with only a ring in its possession) are referencing Sauron in the series.
~M'aiq reappears in Skyrim. He appeared in Morrowind and Oblivion, as an Easter Egg Basket of sorts for developers to comment on some of the game features that were removed, added, or were/are planned for the series as well as other RPG gaming community related remarks
~A statue of the Gray Fox can be found in Mercer Frey's house in Riften, along with Chillrend.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
