I would like to give a big round of applause for the storyline writers and character developers for the brilliant job with all the fictional and historical/celebrity characters.
Just a few of my favorites:
- Vin Diesel as he appears in Pitch Black and Riddick - Lucius Fox - Hernan Cortes - Don Quixote - Zorro - my personal favorite: characters from Firefly (may she rest in peace)
I know that most of this work is lost on the younger players of this game (my son included), but I just wanted the development team to know that I have loved every single apperance thus far, and am looking forward to the ones to come.
I've lost track of how many times an NPC name or quest name has made me laugh!
The best one I've seen is a Privateers' companion, a Muskateer named Ensign Emmett. When I first got the quest to meet him, I thought, "Wouldn't it be hilarious if he's an otter?" and sure enough he was!
