Possible Easter Egg?

Okay so in BloodTide Coast

 Theres a pirate cave called Moriarity's Hold Inside this cave theres a guy called Captain Penzan,  Now I'm not too sure but the guy starts to sing alittle song about being a Major General and the way he sings it totally sounds like.

The Pirate Movie - Modern Major General

Thought it was pretty cool if they are related.

 

Nothing major though! something to think about.

    Just so you know....that song is from Pirates of Penzance, a comic opera by Gilbert and Sullivan. I have no idea what the pirate movie is, but it most surely does not originate from it. Its from the late 19th century.

    I noticed Captain Penzan too. The bookcarts in Divinity's Reach are full of pop culture references. The first one I clicked on mentioned something about a giant turtle, an obvious Discworld reference.

    You mean you haven't found the Alice in Wonderland type heart quest in the Sylvari starting zone?  Or the Goonies hidden jump puzzle in..I forget the zone, hilrathi possibly.  Also, a nod to the Wizard of Oz  over there in Timberline Falls.  I'm sure that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    The whole sylvari starting zone, a lot of their early story, and a heart are totally a homage to Plants Vs. Zombies.

    I mean you're plants.  Putting down plant turrets.  To fight waves of incoming zombies. :T

  • That's pretty clearly a reference to the Pirates of Penzance musical.

    There is a pirate that sings 16 men and a dead man's chest from Robert Louie Stevenson's Treasure Island during one of the story Quests. There are also a few Alice and Wonderland, Snow White and - I've been told a few other Grimm fairy tale references.
