 Fallout 3 Reference
In Crucible there is a store called 'Things Found', the shopkeeper here thinks the world will end... This could be a reference to Fallout 3, a game also by Bethesda which is set in post-apocalypse america... 184.108.40.206 15:09, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
- Fallout 3 came out 1.5 years after Shivering Isles, so no, it probably wouldn't be a reference. Even if it were a reference to a forthcoming game, we'd need a stronger tie than just the world ending to mention it as a reference. – Robin Hood↝talk 17:13, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
- It seems more plausible that she's talking about the coming Greymarch and not anything to do with another game. Arthmoor 19:33, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

 Vendor chest in the wastrels purse.
In Passwall in the Wastrels Purse there is a hidden chest that can be accessed by jumping through the ceiling at the top of the stairs. Jump up into the roof trusses and you will get outside the building into a creepy empty black space. Fall down to the floor sticking out from the wall behind Dredhwen then, facing her, fall off the floor and start moving toward her you will see a chest floating in mid air. You have to access it while falling so it is difficult, you will respawn in the room. It doesn't have anything crazy in it and was probably intended to be in the room behind Dredhwen. Have fun deleting this off the main page for whatever reason as it is probably the only actual Easter Egg on the page as there only seems to be half baked references to pop culture. Except for the one about nightwish that is. — Unsigned comment by 220.127.116.11 (talk) on 3 September 2010
- That's not an easter egg. Almost every shop in the game has at least one such chest. It's where the vendor stores his or her goods and is located under the main store so you can't steal everything without glitches or the console. rpeh •T•C•E• 17:16, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
- I agree with you that most of the "easter eggs" we list are rubbish, but people get very upset if they're deleted.
- On the subject of vendor chests, we get the occasional post saying that people managed to glitch through a wall and saw a chest, but glitches vary with length of game, mods, platform and goodness knows what else so they aren't listed. If you're on a PC, use the Console command
tcland you can go through the floor to see the vendor chests in every store. rpeh •T•C•E• 21:35, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Once again, are there any other vendor chests that are accessible in the game or is this the only one? I don't care about it being listed as an "Easter Egg". I just consider acquiring it's contents to be a novel challenge because it is so difficult and thought it should be documented somewhere here. Please respond to this as opposed to taking it down, again, as this is the discussion page after all.Datacaust 23:50, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
 "You wouldn't like me when I'm bored"
"You wouldn't like me when I'm bored" may also be a reference to Battlestar Galactica when number 6 says "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry Gaius"18.104.22.168 16:12, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
- Which was coined in "The Incredible Hulk" comics or the movies. Its basically Bruce banner's little catchphrase, trust me.--Clan Orion 03:24, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
 Reference to Icarus?
On one of the rooftops in Crucible, I found a potion of feather, a lot of quills (which look like feathers) and some bones in a pile. Reference to Icarus anyone? Kitkat1749 •Talk•Contrib•E-mail 10:32, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
theres another egg in cruicible hidden in a broken crate under the water is a locked carafe and i dont think it can be opened
im not sure if this is a refrence or just my over active imagionation but the hollowed stumps in some of the dungions the ones with the green blobs on that spurt out green gass every few secounds sort of look simmular to the mutated tiberium trees from command&conqure ...for that matter madness ore grows out of the ground simmular to tiberium..The sorrow 13:44, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
 Potion of Feathers
On the roof of Birthaur's house there is a large pile of "Feathers" (quills) and in the center there is a "Potion of Feather".
- This isn't an Easter Egg, really, just an amusing tidbit that they added to the game. If you look in the archive, you'll see there have been a few discussions about it already: Another Questionable Egg, Bird Crash, and Bird Potion. It's also mentioned on The Paranoid Roof Watcher, though only as a reference to there being various things to be found on the rooftops, including potions. – Robin Hood↝talk 01:31, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
 Definition of an Easter Egg
The notice at the top of Egg pages, when added, says
This page is for Easter Eggs only. Easter Eggs include inside jokes, pop culture references, and any similar reference to something outside the Elder Scrolls games. For other points of interest, like unfinished quests, or references to other games in the Elder Scrolls series, please see the appropriate pages.
- Once upon a time, I had considered splitting this to match Oblivion's splitting, but ended up taking a protracted wikibreak before I got to it. My one concern with splitting it, though, is that it might make for some very short pages. Apart from that, I'm all for it. – Robin Hood↝talk 15:06, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
 O.J. Simpson reference?
Could Orinthal in Bliss be a reference to O.J. Simpson? They have the same (spelled slightly different) first name, he's a Redguard and he claims to be a "retired assassin". >.> 22.214.171.124 23:41, 3 August 2012 (UTC)johnnypebs
- Interesting note, but I think this is more a coincidence than anything else. If OJ had been frequently known to be obsessed with random trivia or played on a team with a green jersey, it might be different, but this is at most an interesting coincidence. That said, this is at least a more plausible proposition than most of the ones we get on the Skyrim page. ThuumofReason 00:50, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
