    Was that after they left? I wonder if they did that to trademark their names... lol

    Technically I did and did not spell it wrong. The guard in Peatbog is Moorguard. Yeah so I got Steve's handle wrong. Shit it has been two years since I have seen him post anything.

    Oh yeah and it was Ryan "Blackguard" Shwayder.

    Igoo, the ape from Kunzar Jungle, and Zok, the named skyfire drake in Jarsath Wastes, are both named for the ape and dragon in 'The Herculoids'.

    Its an old school cartoon, but one of my favorites from when I was a kid You can still catch them on Boomerang as short cartoons between shows.

    Here's some more, from EQ1, copy and paste job from EverQuest Funny NPC Names :: Ultimate MMORPG Gaming Community & Trading Zone

    If you visit the lakeshore in the West Commonlands, you can find a lonely man skipping stones. His name - Skippyn Stoneshear. ("Skipping Stones Here")

    In the Qeynos Hill area, you’ll find Guards Regis and Philbin – a reference to Regis Philbin.

    In Kithicor Forest, watch for three tigers by the names of Reggit, Eenot, and Hobbes. These look to be plays on three famous tigers: Tigger, Tony (Frosted Flakes) and Hobbes (Calvin and Hobbes)

    In South Karana, there’s a Bard at the fountain named Vhalen which is interpreted by many as an abbreviation for Van Halen, the famous band. If you talk to Vhalen, you’ll find he has some interesting things to say about another Bard named "Metala". A reference, perhaps, to a rivalry between Van Halen and the band Metallica?
    Staying with the Metallica theme, there are two Barbarians in West Karanas named Lars and Ulrich. Lars Ulrich is the drummer for the Metallica!

    In Steamfront, watch out for Feddi Dooger - which is believed to be a reference to horror-film villain, Freddy Krueger, from ‘Nightmare of Elm Street’ fame.

    In Freeport you’ll find a Bard Merchant named Jekel Enheid. Get it? "Dr. Jekell and Mr. Hyde"!

    In Steamfont, look for a pretty little spider named Charlotte, from the book ‘Charlotte's Web.’

    Underneath Qeynos there’s a Gelatinous Cube named Cubert – an obvious reference to the 1980’s era arcade game called Q-Bert!

    In the Highkeep music room, you can find two Guards named Chopin and Bach.

    At Lake Rathetear you can find Prince Kyrmt Keroppi - a frogluk. So… here we have an interesting mélange of the fairy tale Frog Prince, ‘Kermit the Frog’, and ‘Hello Kitty's’ frog friend Keroppi. What a triple play!

    In Kedge Keep there’s a reference to Shakespeare’s MacBeth - two sharks that go by the names of "Cauldronboil" and "Cauldronbubble".

    Breed a donkey any way you want. You’ll never have a Thoroughbred.

    Some more:
    - Ivanhoe, a dog guard in North Qeynos (I think)
    - Many Halloween/Nights of the Dead NPCs are named after popular horror film characters, i.e. Jason Voorhees
    - A goblin in last year's Brell Day zone says "I has ale," and your character asks "I can has cider?" I think it was cider. It's a reference to the "I Can Has Cheezburger?"
    - probably mentioned, but April 1 - Portal references with the box, and the cape being a lie.
    - "It's time to sleigh the dragon!" = reference to EQOA TV commercial
