    The Mabar Night Revels quest "Under new ravagement" has a certain line :

    "Pounding can be heard from below".

    This is a direct reference to the old story by Edgar Allan Poe called "The Tell-Tale Heart".

    In it, an insane murderer confesses his murder because of the loud pounding of the heart of the murdered man from down below the floor ...
    The story's jest or joke, however, isn't that easy to understand : A dead person cannot have a still beating heart - thus, the muderer falls victim to his false believe that the dead person's heart is still beating - but instead it is the murderer's heart thart's beating !
    "You are a Tiefling. And a Cleric, with the Domain of the Sun. Doesn't that contradict each other ?" "No, all my friends are playing evil. I found that so boring that I decided to be on the good side. And, besides, Sun and Fire, where is the difference, really ?"

    Default Don’t touch it! It’s evil!

    OK in Saltmarsh there’s one of the rare encounters you tell “Don’t touch it! It’s evil!”

    This has GOT to be a Time Bandits reference.

    "We're releasing the shifter race, and...."

    Biggest pun of that year.

    I don't get it.
    Got complaints about the in-game hirelings?
    That's nothing compared to what they say about YOU

    It took me until this past weekend, to realize that a line of DM text that I have heard probably a hundred times; is actually a play on words pun.

    "The Spinner of Shadows looms in the distance."

    The Spinner, Looms....
    I gave up a life of farming to become an Adventurer.

    Default LoTR movie reference

    Was down exploring the Cogs and doing all of the walk ups quests for the first time. I cant remember if it was in a quest or just out in the explorer area. There is a goblin who says "looks like meat is back on the menu."

    When upgraded to Epic Elyd Edge, the weapon gains Screaming, which is what many people agree Geddy Lee's early singing amounted to.
    Elyd Edge is also an anagram for Geddy Lee.

    Default Right I'll do you for that

    I notice this being said in Saltmarsh by NPCs and have seen it somewhere else (I do not remember). The Black Knight tells King Arthur this after Arthur cuts off his leg in Monty Python and the Home Grail.
