    Default Some EQ2 Trivia (possibly lore)

    Well i thought i'd start the ball rolling with some good ole EQ2 trivia, most is from official forums but i doubt many people here read it, Feel free to remove it, move it to carebear of w/e you wish, but i thought it was lore (kind of).
    A good eq1 knowledge also helps aswell
    so here we are:


    # Qeynos = Sony EQ

    # Xegony = Oxygen
    Xegony is the god of air

    # Fennin Ro = Inferno (off by one letter)
    Fennin Ro is the god of fire

    # Tarew Marr = Water Marr(marr is just a suffix given to several gods)

    # Povar = Vapor

    # E'ci = Ice
    Tarew, Povar and E'ci are the gods of water

    # Rodcet Nife = Docter Fine?
    Rodcet Nife is the prime healer

    # Veeshean = Heavens
    Veeshan is the ruler of all wurms

    # Rathe = Earth
    Rathe is a council of several members that are the gods of earth

    # Orly / Yarly = Oh Really / Yea Really
    Two owlbears from in Nek Forest.

    # Tunare = Nature
    Tunare is the god of nature and creator of elves

    # Felwithe = White Elf
    Felwithe is the city of the High Elves who generally have pale skin

    # Ew Evol Zilla = We Love (god)Zilla

    # Ew Raef Zilla = We Fear (god)Zilla
    In EQ1 there was a Zilla temple. Generally temples are created to serve a god of some sorts, so we derive Godzilla.

    T'narev - One of the carpet paths in Pillars of Flame. Verant spelled backwards.

    Uqua, The Ocean God Chantry: Aqua


    Evol Ew - We Love
    Tae Ew - We Eat

    Tower of Vhalen (game designer)

    The frogs in the froglok village you port to have reversed froggie names SMILEY Timrek, Pikspoh, Pohpiks, Repmuj, Reppoh, and, of course, the lovebirds. Oemor and Teiluj.

    Darlek the exterminator in mistmoore catacombs

    In EQ1's Padual Caverns, there was a Beatle looking mob named Ringo.

    You can really rell that the programmers are big Nintendo fans, just from some of the zone names... Everfrost Peaks is also the name of a level in Super Mario Kart Racing for the SNES, while the Lake of Ill Omen can be found in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

    Tunare (Goddess of Nature) = Nature
    Fennin Ro (from the Plane of Fire) = Infernno (yes, slightly misspelled)
    The Rathe (from the Plane of Earth) = The Earth
    Xegony (from the Plane of Air) = Oxygen
    Veeshan (child of Xegony, ruler of the sky) = Heavens
    Tarew Marr (from the Plane of Water) = Water, Marr is similar to Mare, Latin for "sea".
    Povar (from the Plane of Water) = Vapor
    E'ci (from the Plane of Water) = Ice
    Rodcet Nife (God of Healing) = Docter Fine (again mispelled).

    During the training sessions with Master Long Shan in The Village, his students all come out, their names:
    Ryu, Dan, Ken, Chun, and Li. (Chun-Li) Characters from Street Fighter

    One of the mobs required for a Court of Coin quest in Sinking Sands/Croc Caves is 'Bindi the Croc Hunter'. Bindi Irwin is Steve Irwin's daughter.

    Frostfell village - Climb through a magic wardrobe to get to a snow land! (Narnia) , in the Winter Wonderland Village Fleck had his tongue stuck to a pole near the closet.

    Lu Sywaka on the third floor of the monk tower in Isle of Mara

    Deathfist Citadel, you can now get a quest called "The Right Brothers" from Oarwille Wight (Orville Wright) in Zek that requires you to find his brother Wulbir Wight (Wilbur Wright) in the citadel. The reward for this quest is the ability to use Oarwille's catapult, the Whirling-Arm Prototype 16 to fly from the Mariner fort to a spot directly in front of DFC


    Also, the quest "Snakes on the Plains" in Loping Plains had me laughing so hard I almost fell out of my seat when I received it.

    EF npc Haijakt: His name means "Shark Hunt" in norwegian/swedish ...kinda fitting

    Court of Al Afaz: The zone is based on the songs "In The Court Of The Crimson King", "Moonchild", "Epitaph" and "I Talk To The Wind" by british prog rockers King Crimson.

    Edghar Toad and his brother = variants of the vampire hunting brothers in "The Lost Boys" (corey feldman and some other dude)
    Village of Shin are two kids named Hu Mi and Wai Mi


    In the Peak Bog they added two Guards... Blackguard (handle of one of the original Community Managers) and Moorguard after Steve "Moorgard" Danuser one of the original Sony Devs for EQ2.


    Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney ("The NEW Steel Warriors") outside Windstalker.... (Simpsons Reference)


    In Scale Yard, a barbarian says "My great-grandfather once killed a man in Qeynos, just to watch him die." A reference to "I once killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die."


    You have the 2 innguards in WFP, named Floatsam and Jetsam, a reference to Disney's The Little Mermaid (or the band).

    Also Kerra island has a quest name can i has... where you make a hamburger.


    There are two NPCs in Steamfont named Emory and Oglethorpe, a reference to the aliens from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

    since alot of this looks like a copy / paste from old eq boards, why no mention of the cat rooms?

    There are two frogloks called 'Ooemor' and 'Ailuj' (Romeo och Julia). They can be found in the Froglok Village (the one you port to from the pond in Antonica).

    You can also find two birds in The Barren Sky (TT Portal) that have these two names, if I remember correct.

    Edit: Forgot to say, thanks for posting this Always interesting to read things like this.

    LOTRO. I feel like playing it but don't want to resub with WAR and WoTLK on the way. But MORIA! I guess I want to since I'm reading the LOTR book =/

    But yea it was really cool reading about Tom and remembering going to his house. The game also makes it alot easier to picture in my head.

    I like LOTRO but Tom is positively homosexual, skipping around in his little cabin dressed up like a hillbilly.

    Erm, back to the topic at hand...I knew about the Hooluk up in BS named Orly and Yarly but I've never seen the ones in Nek, where in Nek are they? I almost died from lack of air b/c of laughing when I came across those two. I just wish there had been a Nowai and Wai too
