The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Easter Eggs - Пасхалки

M’aiq the Liar
  • The Khajiit with the funny voice has emigrated to Skyrim. Beginning in Morrowind, and moving on to Oblivion, M’aiq spouts off lines and commentary about features or items that were left out of the game in development. 
  • M’aiq travels on the roads of Skyrim, and can be very difficult to find. If you do spot him, make sure to follow and talk to hear one of his many quotes.
Stolen Sweetrolls
  • In Skyrim, many NPCs will ask if your sweetroll was stolen. This is a reference back to Morrowind, in which one of the questionnaire questions that determine your class referenced sweetrolls.
  • Also, in Fallout 3, the bully steals your sweetroll early in your young life. The stolen sweetroll is a running easter egg from Bethesda.
Oblivion Easter Eggs
  • Used the “Summon Spectral Assassin” spell to summon Lucien Lachance in ghost form. He is the recruiter from the Dark Brotherhood in Oblivion.
  • A giant mudcrab husk can be found in Whiterun Hold, in the fields surrounding Whiterun. This mudcrab is dead, but continues the tradition of having mudcrabs in every Elder Scrolls game.
  • In the Dark Brotherhood faction house, read Cicero’s Journal Volume 1, he references the Adoring Fan at the Arena in the Imperial Capital.
  • Find a mage named Nelacar in the Frozen Hearth Inn, in Winterhold, and try to talk to him. If you fail to persuade him, he will reference a “Lusty Argonian”, he is referencing an in-universe book from Oblivion and Morrowwind called “The Lusty Argonian Maid.” The book can also be found in Skyrim.
A Song of Ice and Fire Series

The city of Winterhold may be a reference to the city of Winterfell in A Game of Thrones. Both are located in the frozen north, and both have leaders that are ignored and called traitors.

Historical Themed
There is a company called the East Empire Company - likely a reference to the historical East India Company.

Alice in Wonderland
  • Finding Sheogorath, he is having a teaparty in the middle of the forest. This is similar to the Mad Hatter in the Alice of Wonderland, not to mention that Sheogorath is the Lord of Madness.
  • Sheogorath, technically, could be considered the Player-Character from Oblivion, if you completed the Shivering Isles expansion!
The Headless Horseman
At night, on the road leading to Northwatch Keep, you can spot a ghostly headless horseman riding on the road. If you follow him, he’ll lead you to a graveyard full of skeletons and a treasure chest. Unlock the chest with a high lockpick skill to find some enchanted weapons.

The town of High Hrothgar is named off a character in Beowulf named Hrothgar. Simple, but true!

Star Trek
In Ivarstead, you can find a woman named Temba Wide-Arm. In an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Darmok, a repeated phrase is “Temba, his arms wide.”

Monty Python
  • When fighting, enemies will often yell, “It’s just a scratch!” which may be a reference to the black knight, said after his arms and legs are cut off.
  • While watching Roggvir’s execution, he’ll yell “Get on with it!” which is similar to a scene with the same line at the end of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
  • On the top of the Throat of the World, on the highest peak, you can find the Notched Pickaxe. The pickaxe is the tool of choice in Minecraft for mining, while Notch is the name of Minecraft’s lead developer.
The Legend of King Arthur
  • South of the Broken Tower Redoubt, there is a place called Rebel’s Cairn. You’ll find a pile of stones with a sword sticking out of the top. This is a reference to the sword in the stone.
  • Northeast of Bleakwind Basin, you can find a pond with a skeletal arm holding a sword. This is a reference to the lady in the lake.
Choose Your Own Adventure
  • A Choose Your Own Adventure book called Kolb and the Dragon can be found in the Jorrvaskr in Whiterun, or in the Radiant Raiment in Solitude.

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 of 300 where Leonidas leads a wolf to a narrow passage then stabs it through the mouth with a spear.

Choose Your Own Adventure
A Choose Your Own Adventure style book can be found in Kolb and the Dragon

Fallout Series Reference
  • Pumpkin, a fox found inside a cage in one of the dungeons, is a reference to the named creature, w:c:Fallout:Pumpkin, found in a similar circumstance underground in Fallout 3.
  • In the Alftand Glacial Ruins if you follow the Khajiit (J'darr) you see when you first enter, he exclaims that one of the smoothskins stole his Skooma which may be reference to what Ghouls call humans in Fallout.
Finntroll Reference 
  • The author and title combination of the book "Troll Slaying" is a reference to the Finnish folk metal band Finntroll . Since the title of the book is 'Troll Slaying' and the author is 'Finn'. Finn + Troll Slaying makes Finntroll. This is probably because many Finntroll songs contain lyrics involving the fighting of trolls.
  • The book does not contain real quotations from Finntroll lyrics, it only gives tips for killing trolls.
  • This book is easily accessable in the bookcase of Farengar at Dragonsreach.

The Headless Horseman

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 the quest on along the Pilgrim's Path to return the Skeleton key, a diary titled "Nydstrom's Diary" is found. Nydstrom being the guitarist from prominent Swedish progressive metal band Katatonia. In it contains several references to the band's music including "Night is the New Day" their latest album and "Ghost of the Sun," a song from another album.

The Legend of King Arthur 
  • If you have found Broken Tower Redoubt, directly south of it there will be a place called Rebel's Cairn where you will find a pile of stones in the front of the cave and there will be a Steel Sword in the top stone, which is a reference to the sword in the stone in the legend of King Arthur. Excalibur?
  • Slightly Northeast of Bleakwind Basin, there is a pond with a skeletal arm holding a leveled sword, which is a reference to the Lady in the Lake in the legend of King Arthur. The Lady Stone is found in the middle of a lake, another reference to the Lady in the Lake.

The Legend of Zelda
During Proving Honor, when Farkas describes how the Circle are werewolves, he states "It's a secret to everybody". This phrase was famous for being used in the secret rooms in the original The Legend of Zelda game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Lord of the Rings
  • In Whiterun, the giant tree there is called the Gildergreen. It is grown from the Eldergleam, the oldest living thing in Skyrim, but is failing. This is similar to the Gondorian capital of Minas Tirith in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, where the legendary White Tree faces a similar fate.
  •  In Whiterun, if you are on the quest Battle for Whiterun, you see Hadvar or Ralof near the city wall after the battle. He makes a reference to Legolas and Gimli's ongoing competition in the movies. "I'm pretty sure I killed more than you. I was counting."
  •  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.

The Notched Pickaxe is a reference to "Notch", the creator of Minecraft. As a pickaxe it is used for mining and it features an enchantment that boosts Smithing, Skyrim's method of crafting. Its hidden-yet-noteworthy location combined with its lack of appearance in any other TES game confirm its Easter Egg nature.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
When fighting, enemies occasionally yell "It's just a flesh wound!" which is a reference to the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, in which King Athur fights the Black Knight. The Black Knight makes this claim after his arm is cut off.
In Endon's House in Markath, look for a shelf in the back of the room with Sliced Goat Cheese, a row of Garlic and some Glow Dust arranged to look like a scene from Pac-Man.

Penny Arcade Celebrity Dungeons and Dragons Series 
  • The Embershard Mine, southwest of Riverwood, is a reference to the Celebrity Dungeons and Dragons campaign hosted by Wizards of the Coast, featuring Mike Kahulik (Gabe) and Jerry Holkins (Tycho) from the webcomic Penny Arcade, Scott Kurtz from the webcomic PvP, and Wil Wheaton. The mine is named after the "Ambershard" clan of dwarves who, in the campaign, stole a mine from the clan of Scott Kurtz's character, Binwin Bronzebottom.
  • A tattered journal within the mine speaks of "Wooden beams that we reinforced with bronze bottoms," another reference to the Bronzebottom clan. Later in the journal, the writer mentions that they might "stop drinking for good," a reference to Binwin's father, a dwarf, who quit drinking out of shame for losing his mine to the Ambershards.
The Pied Piper

The Dampened Spirits quest involves killing Hamelyn. His name, as well as his journal, both describe events similar to those in the myth, Pied Piper.

Poltergeist Reference

After you complete the House of Horrors quest, locate the table in the abandoned house and you should find the chairs. The chairs are rearranged in a weird way, just like in the movie Poltergeist.

Star Trek Reference

In the village of Ivarstead there is a woman named Temba Wide-Arm. This is a reference to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode Darmok, where one of the often-repeated phrases is "Temba, his arms wide."

Star Wars Reference
  • Inside of Bleakcoast Cave (Eastern Winterhold) there is a skeleton hanging upside down from the ceiling. Below the skeleton is a glowing sword. This makes reference to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back when Luke Skywalker was caught on Hoth and hung from the cavern ceiling. The sword below representing his lightsaber. Video guide can be found here.
  • This marks the second time Bethesda has put this Easter Egg in an Elder Scrolls game. A similar cave existed in Bloodmoon called Bjorn, referencing the exact same scene of the exact same movie in the exact same manner. 
  • If you travel with the ghost of Lucien Lachance he will some times say "I feel a disturbance in the void" which is very similar to the phrase "I feel a disturbance in the force" from the Star Wars movies which is often mentioned by Jedi.
  • Inside of Frostfruit Inn Erik can be heard talking to his father, with his father telling him "all I ask is that you stay on for one more season" and "that's just your mother's side in you." This is in reference to Uncle Owen's conversation with Luke in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

Three Billy Goats Gruff

On your way to Hag Rock Redoubt, there is a bridge with a dead Troll underneath. If it's your first time visiting, you will witness two goats meeting a third at the end of the bridge then running off together. This is a reference to the child's tale, "Three Billy Goats Gruff," where a troll is defeated by a trio of goats. A similar reference was made in Oblivion.

Historical and Real World Mythological References
  • The East Empire Company is a reference to the East India Company.
  • Sovngarde and The Hall of Valor have very notable similarities to Asgard and Valhalla respectively from Norse myth.
  • The Poetic Edda sought by the Bards College reflects a collection of texts of the same name from Old Norse culture.
  • A mammoth can be found directly east of Frostflow Lighthouse, frozen into the side of a glacier with arrows and what appear to be prehistoric spears embedded in its hide. The arrows in the mammoth appear to be Dwarven, hinting that the Dwemer may have killed this beast.
  • High Hrothgar is obviously named after Hrothgar, the real life king of Denmark who was also a character in the epic poem Beowulf.
Previous Games References. Alchemical apparatuses
In previous Elder Scrolls games, the Alchemy skill required that specific equipment be collected in order to combine ingredients and create potions. Such items included the Retort, the Alembic, the Mortar and Pestle, and the Calcinator. The Alchemy skill in Skyrim was simplified; potions are brewed with Alchemy Labs. Thus, the Alchemy shop The Mortar and Pestle and the "missing" Alembic of Tolfdir are nods to the omission of apparatuses, the way The Missing Pauldron of The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles referred to the omission of pauldrons after The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind . Furthermore, when using an Alchemy Lab, the only Alchemy tools used are the Alembic and Mortar and Pestle.

Alduin's Wall 
  • Alduin's Wall showcases events from the previous four games, such as:
  • The shattering of the Staff of Chaos from The Elder Scrolls I: Arena.
  • Numidium From The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall.
  • Red Mountain from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
  • An Oblivion Gate over the White Gold Tower from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

The guard's frequent comments regarding "taking arrows in the knee" is actually a subtle reference to the fact that Greaves are not an armor type in Skyrim, unlike in previous games, where Greaves protected the shin and knees. It's also a common factor on websites that when people comment with the joke, they say "arrow to the knee" when in fact the guards say "arrow in the knee".
 Also, a former Stormcloak soldier called Argrenor Once Honored can be found in Windhelm who, when spoken to, says to the player "I was one of the best soldiers the Stormcloak army had, but then I took a sword through the chest".

M'aiq the Liar

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.
The Elder Scrolls I: Arena

Labyrinthian was first introduced in Arena. Like in Arena, a magical guild (Mages Guild in Arena) is involved in your visit to Labyrinthian. And like in Arena, the player is going there to retrieve a magical staff (in Arena, you went to recover a piece of the broken Staff of Chaos).
The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
  • During Sheogorath's quest, he tries to guess who the message you bring him is from. One of his picks was King Lysandus' ghost.
  • At the inn in Solitude, the bard sometimes plays the melody heard in the stores in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall.
  • A quest for the Companions involves killing Glenmoril Witches to cure Lycanthropy. Glenmoril Witches, and their relation to lycanthropy's cure were first introduced in Daggerfall.
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  • During the quest The Cure For Madness in the ice cave portion of the quest, you encounter a unique troll named Udefrykte which is a reference to The Udyrfrykte from Bloodmoon who bears a similar appearance and is also found in a similar location though their names are spelled slightly different. The Udyrfrykte in turn is a reference to Grendel in the epic Beowulf.
  • The artifact Keening from the main quest of Morrowind makes a return. Unlike in Morrowind, Keening can be used without Wraithguard with no ill effects.
  • A drug called Balmora Blue figures in a Thieves Guild quest, named after the town of Balmora from Morrowind.
  • If you fail a persuasion check when first encountering Nelacar in the Azura's Star quest, he says "Right, now tell me the one about the Argonian maid and the lusty baron." This is a reference to the book from the Elder Scrolls series: The Lusty Argonian Maid. The same book exists in Skyrim, easily missed on a bookshelf amid burned and ruined books as well as found in Haelga's room in Haelga's Barracks in Riften. There is also another part of The Lusty Argonian Maid that can be read in-game.
  • A bar in the Grey Quarters of Windhelm is called New Gnisis Corner Club named after Gnisis from Morrowind, and the habit of the Dunmer to call taverns "Corner Clubs". Local Nords will remark on the latter. Incidently, Gnisis did not have a Corner Club.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Lucien Lachance returns in Ghost form when you obtain the power "Summon Spectral Assassin".
  • Lucien will make several references to Oblivion's plot, especially to the Dark Brotherhood quests of Oblivion. These include mentioning the death of Uriel Septim VII, the story of Mathieu Bellamont and mentions of performing a "purification" on a Dark Brotherhood sanctuary, which includes how he is "more partial to apples" than the poison stew during the quest "To Kill An Empire".
  • One of the employers for the Dark Brotherhood is named Amaund Motierre. Francois Motierre hired the Dark Brotherhood in Oblivion. Gabriella will remark that the Motierres are a powerful, old family of Bretons on Cyrodill. Both Motierres' missions involve a trip through a zombie-filled crypt.  
  • Upon finding a Crimson Nirnroot (see bottom of the page) you start a quest named, "A Return To Your Roots" which is a reference to Oblivion's Nirnroot quest. Sinderion, the Altmer who was after Nirnroot in Oblivion, can be found by a Crimson Nirnroot, however he is dead and nothing but bones.
  • A statue of the Gray Fox can be found in Mercer Frey's house in Riften, along with Chillrend.
  • If you help Ralof escape Helgen, you will arrive at Riverwood and his sister will say "Any friend of Ralof's is a friend of mine". This is a reference to "Any friend of Martin's is a friend of mine", the way NPC's greet you in Oblivion after completing the main quest.
  • The husk of a giant mudcrab can be found within the plains surrounding Whiterun, continuing the giant mud crab tradition from prior games. It is however, very much dead upon discovery, unlike in Oblivion, where the giant mudcrab is alive and fightable. However, there is a quest were you have to fight the Guardian Mudcrab Spirit at that location.
  • In the Dark Brotherhood, if you read Cicero's Journal Volume 1, he writes; 27th of Rain's Hand, 4E 187 Completed the Arena contract. I ultimately decided to pose as a starstruck fan, and immediately got into the Grand Champion's good graces. While escorting the arrogant fool through the Great Forest, I slashed his throat and left the corpse for the bears. This is a reference to the Adoring Fan in Oblivion, who many gamers found incredibly annoying.
  • Shadowmere, the horse given to you in Oblivion by Lucien Lachance, is again given to you by Astrid during the Dark Brotherhood quests. If you have the spell "Summon Spectral Assassin" cast and Lucien is following you as the spectre, as he approaches Shadowmere he will say "Shadowmere, my old and dear friend."
  • When asking Elgrim about his store, he mentions that it is hard to get Painted Troll Fat, an ingredient from Oblivion, only acquirable by painted trolls from the quest A Brush With Death. You may also overhear him scolding Ingun for wasting his supply of the aforementioned ingredient.
  • In Riften, you can find a Dark Elf named Romlyn Dreth working for the Black-Briar's mead production, who is related to Valen Dreth, the Dark Elf prisoner in Oblivion who taunts the player character at the beginning of the game. At night, in the Bee and Barb, you can hear Romlyn tell fake stories about Valen and the Oblivion Crisis (example being how Valen single handedly killed 6 Imperial Guards before he was taken to jail.)
  • The quest Laid to Rest feature a Vampire named Movarth. Movarth's story features in the book Immortal Blood, which first appeared in Oblivion. It can also still be found in Skyrim.
  • The smuggling/pirate ship Red Wave in Solitude harbor draws its name from the Redwave, an enchanted cutlass (Pirate's Sword) found in Oblivion as a quest reward to The Ghost Ship of Anvil. Further references ties the two: A book found in Oblivion revealed that a Dark Brotherhood Assassin was responsible for killing everyone on board the titular ship. While in Skyrim, a Dark Brotherhood Quest (Contract: Kill Safia) takes place on the Red Wave.
  • There is a small island made of ice to the north west of The Tower Stone that has a constant slope upwards and is unmarkable on your map, but is shown on it. At the very top of this iceberg there is a frozen skeleton with a flag planted in the ground with a chest containing loot and a book called The Knights of the Nine that details the history of The Knights of the Nine, thus suggesting that the dead body was a member of this faction from the DLC Knight of the Nine for Oblivion.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles
  • Inside Riften's Keep, in the court mage's room you may find a letter behind the counter, called Note's Location.
  • "Per Your Requests". It is a response to a letter sent by Wylandriah, a female Bosmer, regarding the unexistance of a bunch of items that the mage asked for. One of the items is the infamous drug from the Isles called "Greenmote". Mirabelle assumes that Wylandriah has made a mistake, writing that Greenmote does not exist and that she miswrote "Greenspore".
  • Sheogorath has the same voice as his predecessor from Shivering Isles. He also makes references to Passwall and Haskill. He also refers to the plot of Shivering Isles when introducing himself, saying Sheogorath is a title that gets passed "From me to myself."  

The Sweetroll Joke
  • A running joke in Bethesda games (dating all the way back to Arena) about sweetrolls can be found throughout the game.
  • Town guards will occasionally say, "Let me guess, someone stole your sweetroll?"
  • The item Sweetroll can be found throughout Skyrim as a normal food item, and sometimes placed in strange locations.
  • While following you, Cicero will sometimes say, "Cicero is hungry for a sweetroll..."
  • Children can rarely be heard saying, "Give me back my sweetroll!" while chasing each other around.
  • The Wabbajack can sometimes place a sweetroll behind the enemy causing them to turn around or rarely turn an enemy into a sweetroll.
  • The Jarl of Whiterun's daughter can be heard complaining that it is almost impossible to find a decent sweetroll in Whiterun.
  • Having your sweetroll stolen was first mentioned in Arena when answering moral questions to determine your class. It was used in a similar context in Daggerfall and Morrowind.
  • M'aiq the Liar comments that he tried dual-casting spells and burnt his sweetroll.

Other Eggs 
  • When you ask the bard to sing hrothgar the red or whatever, theres a part of the song that says this is the part where you fall down and bleed to death lol
  • When you kill the Emperor in the Dark Brotherhood quest “Hail Sithis!” one of the books on his desk is “Oblivion Christs” (I think its called) is the story of the main quest of Elder scrolls IV: Oblivion.
  • When i was roaming around I found a cave near the north and when i went inside there wher ice trolls. but the easter egg was at the end of the cave. If uve watched starwars ull know what its representing. its a skeleton frozen upsidedown and a weapon on the ground with an elctric enchantment!
  • The lusty argonian maid is available in skyrim, too. it just takes some looking for it.
  • In Dwemer ruins you can find gold holes on the wall, simalar to the ones on Bioshock. from wenst little girls crawl from.
  • Two things.One. the book detailing your adventures in oblivion is called ‘the Oblivion Crisis’ Two, a thieves guild related quest has you deep underground the hemmingbrew meadery where you encounter a mage who has an army of skeevers (Skyrim version of rats) His name is Hamelyn, a reference, I guessed to the Pied Piper of Hamlin.
  • When you raid Mercer’s house in the Thieves’ Guild quest line, you will find a bust of “The Grey Fox” on the work table in the basement. Not sure if this qualifies as an egg, but it’s a nice detail.
  • In the Thieves Guild there is a character named rune. Speak to him about his name and he will tell a story that is almost a word for word quote from the movie Spaceballs. From the scene when Loan Star tells princess Vespa about his childhood.
  • At the Abandoned House in Markoth, after you do the quest that makes the demon throw objects at you, if u look at the table near the back of the first room theres chairs stacked on top of one another, Poltergiest easter egg!
  • I found another possible easter egg. If you travel down the path from Hamvirs Rest then you will find a knocked over wagon with multiple cabbages on the ground. Could be a reference to Avatar The Last Airbender where there is a merchant who always screams “MY CABBAGES!!!” when they are knocked out of his wagon.
  • An easter egg that isn’t far from the beginning of the game is Embershard Mine, which is a reference to the Penny Arcade D&D Podcasts, along with a journal in the mine that states they reinforced their pillars with “bronze bottoms” (referencing the surname of one of the characters in the podcast).
  • There is a stormcloak officer that asks you to go find his book that he lost , and on this journey you pik up a neclace called the jew.
  • I was in ancient Nord ruins (I forget the exact name) and I found a ‘broken sword hilt’. It it just a sword handle with a small, sharp, jagged blade. It isn’t considered a weapon and isn’t a quest item, so I’m going to guess that it’s a reference to The Sword that was Broken from Lord of the Rings.
  • There’s a MadWoman roaming around the southeastern mountains, after getting the Wabbajack. She’ll say something funny like “Wabbajack Wabbajack Wabbajack Wabbajack”, and “Please, lord, I would be honored if you would use the Wabbajack on me.”
  • Have you noticed on the Burlap map they got a little “X”. I discovered one just NE of downstar and It gave me a rare Flame Cloak spell like Dunmer have but im argonian. It’s like a flame circling you and damages all opponants that get close. I found it very useful against the huge ice wraiths. Still im preety sure the “X”‘s on the map are hidden treasures and locations… check em out. and Milo: I got the wabbajack and found her she told me to use it so i turned her into a mudcrab and Elisiff (Jearl of solitude) into a bunny!!!! My follower killed me cuz i turned her into a deadra. Yeah that’s why you get drunk with Sam I think he’s in downstar. He’s Sanguine, the deadric prince of well read the tips. He gives you a rose that summons a deadra to fight for you when you need it. PLUS anybody know of a 2 player CO-OP mod for xbox as I want to cause mayhem with a friend?
  • There is a eye on a rock that looks like the eyes litle sisters draw on the walls in bioshock. It is by the exit to the caves after you escape the dragon at the start of the game.
  • Hey, Omen, I know the guards will say “I’m watching you.” if your bounty gets high but where did you ever get “Don’t turn around or you will die.” I’m a Dr Who fan and would love to know.
  • im not entirely sure if this is counts as an egg as opposed to a reference but have you noticed when you talk to the greybeards during the main quest when he says: “Winds guide you” this seems very familiar to what Tauren say in world of warcraft as well as the leader of the worgen(werewolves) of world of warcraft being Genn Graymane like the guys in White run with the companions, thought i’d point that out
  • If you go and talk to the alchemist in skingrad, and ask her about skyrim, she will start talking about necrophilia, which me and her commenced once one of us was dead.
  • If you look in mirror in whiterun in a back room of Javascar sorry for spelling youll realize your pretty much all stupid and all butt a dew should stop breathing

Всадник без головы
Всадник без головы, появляющийся во время прохождения миссии "Пропавший без вести". Его можно встретить в окрестностях Вайтрана. Hobo - призрак с молотом скачущий прямиком на героя. Это отсылка к одноименному роману. Если за ним пойти, то вы дойдете до кладбища где... найдете клад.

Сладкий рулет

Пройдя мимо стражников можно услышать фразу "Давай угадаю, кто-то украл твой сладкий рулет?".
 Это чуть ли не классическая пасхалка в серии игр "Древние свитки". В Даггерфолле (Daggerfall) это был вопрос при создании персонажа. В Моровинде (Morrowind) это было вопросом в канцелярии. А в Обливионе (Oblivion) это являлось одним из рассказов стражников (стражника в... как там этот город... где ещё этот параноик был).
 Эта пасхалка засветилась также и в Fallout 3 как стычка на дне рождения - при разговоре с хулиганом Бутчем также можно было отдать или не отдать булочку ему. (см. этот пост.)

М'Айк Лжец

В игре можно встретить персонажа по имени М'айк Лжец, встречавшегося нам с времен Морровинда. И это несмотря на то, что со времён событий предыдущей части игры прошло 200 лет.  Его можно будет найти в абсолютно случайном месте. От «Подсказок» и «Оправданий» же остались только недовольные отзывы о новой боевой системе и философское (???) рассуждение о Винтерхолде.
При следующей встрече может поведать о снеге в Скайриме. Но послушать старого каджита все равно интересно:
Откуда известно, что есть город Винтерхолд? М'Айк его своими глазами не видел, а ты?
Слишком много магии - это опасно. М'Айк как-то наслал два заклинания одновременно и сжег свой сладкий рулет.
Что значит комбинировать магию? Магия плюс магия - все равно магия.
Я люблю смотреть на снежинки. Какая разница, куда они потом исчезают?
Не пытайся блокировать двумя мечами, только оконфузишься.
Что-то странное происходит с каджитами, когда они прибывают в Скайрим.
М'Айк реалист! Зачем ему какой-то мистицизм?
На этом интересные реплики заканчиваются и дальше вы услышите только:
М´Айк устал. Приставай к кому-нибудь другому.
М´Айк закончил разговор.
Еще он произносит что то вроде "Оборотни Медведи Медведи-оборотни Люди-медведи"
М'Айк очень любит ВНЕЗАПНО исчезать. "М'Айк был замечен за пределами карты, в так называемых "облаках Скайрима", также может быть найден на границах карты и возле городов.". Источник.

RPG из Fallout 3

Помните в Fallout 3 была на компьютере экспериментальная РПГ (в локации издательства комиксов...Эээ). Здесь есть печатное подобие... Книжка называется "Кольб и дракон", ищите в магазинах вашего города ;) (Точнее в Йоррваскре, в Вайтране, или в Солитьюде... пока что так... Ну или стащите/возмите у Соратников.) Ну а вообще это.

Зазубренная кирка Нотча

 В игре можно будет найти «Notched Pickaxe» в регионе Глотки мира. "Кирка Нотча" или "Зазубренная кирка" - это самая распространено известная пасхалка в The Elder Scrolls. Она отсылает к игре Minecraft. Разработчик игры - Маркус "Нотч" Перссон. Cами разработчики упоминают об этой игре как одной из своих любимых игр. Странно, учитывая тот факт, что Bethesda и компания Mojang оказались в суде на слушании дела о новой игре Scrolls, которая по мнению адвокатов Bethesda может навредить ранее зарегистрированной The Elder Scrolls.

Люсьен Лашанс

После одного из квестов Темного Братства, можно получить заклинание, призывающее персонажа Обливиона - Люсьена Лашанса. Люсьен Лашанс появляется в Обливионе (Люсьен приходит к игроку, если тот убил одного невинного человека.), где умирает, в Скайриме он спектральный ассасин. Также вам дается конь - Тенегрив (Черная т(хр)ень с красными глазами...), который также был в предыдущей части. Если вызвать Лашанса рядом с Тенегривом, тот узнает свою бывшую лошадку. Так же если вызвать его в данстарском убежище когда идете убивать цицерона он будет давать интересные комментарии. После (вступления в Темное братство) дают "Клинок Горя", из того же Обливиона. Спасибо ZaCon45 за информацию и скрин.

Шут Цицерон из Темного Братства, скорее всего отсылка к Марку Туллию Цицерону, древнеримскому философу и политику.

Властелина колец

В крепости города Вайтран у трона правителя, ярла Балгруфа-Старшего, происходит весьма интересная сцена, без сомнения, знакомая поклонникам "Властелина колец" - советник пытается уговорить правителя не верить в драконов и не выделять армию в деревушку Ривервуд, но правитель поступает как нужно.

В Вайтране имеется еще одна отсылка к "Властелину колец" - это таверна "Гарцующая лощадь". ну а активируемые квест о поисках женщины-редгарда группой Аликрских воинов - это поиски девятью всадниками Фродо.Таверна "Гарцующая лошадь" это отсылка к таверне "Гарцующий пони" опять же из "Властелина колец." Дерево Златоцвет в Вайтране - прямая параллель с Белым деревом из «Властелин колец: Возвращение короля».

В Скайриме присутствовать фалмеры не как обычные снежные эльфы, а как монстры. (Фалмеры являются мифическими существами, которые, если верить легендам, являются далекими потомками первых эльфов, живших в Скайриме. Они были упомянуты в The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon. Это ещё одна отсылка к "Властелину колец". Там из монстров бывших когдато эльфами была создана армия тьмы Мордора.


Балгруф - Старший, списан с Беовульфа!11!!110100110
Город Верхний Хротгар назван так в честь персонажа из «Беовульфа» по имени Хротгар. Просто, но правдиво!

История игрушек

В доме фракции Тёмного Братства, прочтите первый том записей Цицерона, в них отсылка к "восторженному поклоннику" похожего на игрушечного тролля из м/ф "История игрушек" на Арене в Столице Империи.

Он написал про это книгу

Можно найти весьма смешную книгу с названием "Похотливая аргонианская дева" в нескольких томах. Примечательно то, что автор этой книги Красиус Курио - развратник, персонаж из Морровинда. Чтобы сдать ему квест в Морровинде надо было раздевать своего персонажа... Хотя если вспомнить много книг перекочевало от Морровида и Обливиона в Скайрим. Так что "Ищу, ищу, ищу...". Попробуйте поговорить с магом по имени Нелакар в гостинице "Frozen Hearth", в Винтерхолде. Если не сумеете его убедить, то он сошлётся на "похотливого аргонианца".

Алиса в Стране Чудес

Когда вы увидете Шеогората, вы немного подоху... Он устроил чаепитие посреди леса. Это похоже на Безумного Шляпника из произведения "Алиса в Стране Чудес", не говоря уже о том, что Шеогорат – Повелитель Таланта и Безумия. Шеогората можно воспринимать как нашего главного героя из прошлой части (Обливион)... конечно, если вы прошли дополнение "Дрожащие Острова".

Легенды о Короле Артуре

Есть местечко под названием Курган Повстанцев. Вы найдёте груду камней с мечом, воткнутым в неё сверху. Это отсылка к легенде о Мече в Камне.
Вы можете найти пруд с рукой скелета, держащей меч. Это отсылка к легенде о Владычице Озера.

Игра престолов

Город Винтерхолд может быть отсылкой к городу Винтерфелл в игре A Game of Thrones. Оба расположены на заснеженном севере, и лидеров (Ульфрик и Эддарда Старка) обоих сбросили со счетов и провозгласили предателями.
Это пока все. Буду искать ещё пасхалки, а вернее делать скрины... скрины, скрины, скрины, скрины и ещё раз скрины.

Монти Пайтон

При наблюдении за казнью Роггвира, он прокричит "Давайте пошевеливайтесь!", что похоже на сцену с той же фразой в конце "Монти Пайтон и Святой Грааль".
И вот ещё...во время сражения, враги будут часто выкрикивать, "Просто царапина!", что может быть отсылкой к Чёрному власте рыцарю, сказавшему это после того, как ему отрезали руку... и вторую руку... а затем и ноги.

Восставший из ада

В ходе выполнения квеста "Непостижимое Глубины" вы находите небольшую коробку, которая напоминает головоломку из фильма "Восставший из ада"

Клайв Баркер

Бабетта, девушка из логова Темного Братства, может быть отсылкой
к фильму Клайва Баркера "Ночной народ"

Ненужные книги

В игре можно найти обгоревшие книги, как в Fallout 3

Армия тьмы

В самом начале игры один из заключенных твердит: "Нет, я не повстанец, вы не можете сделать этого!" - совсем как в фильме "Армия тьмы"


В крепости Вайтран есть дочь ярла, при приближении к ней, она выговаривает данные слова:"Я люблю мясо с кровью" На мой взгляд отсылка на царскую дочь Адду - дочь Фольтеста из игры Ведьмак, которая любила данное блюдо, считающееся побочным эффектом от времяпровождения в теле Стрыги...

Бездонный невидимый сундук
В Данстаре по левую руку если стоять лицом ко входу в железнорудную шахту (не перепутайте со ртутной шахтой) сундук между двух камней и скалой.
