    [​IMG] I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this in the forum before. I'm currently replaying PsT and have been doing the brothel quests. When i got to juliette and was pretednding to be a suitor i suddenly realised the relevance of the names julliette and montague because i've been studying romeo and juliet at school. The full names were romeo montague
    and juliette capulet
    The situations are reversed by juliette and montagues relationahip being tranquil and perfectly approved of, the complete oppostie of the plot of romeo and juliet. Jus thought i'd share this with you.

    Are there any other easter egg type things like this in PsT ? i already know about the junk icon being the same as the fallout one.

    When you pick up/drop the Pet Lim-Lim in the inventory screen, it is the same sound as in Fallout's inventory screen.
    You can also see several barrels with a nuclear trefoil on them (one in the Tenement of Thugs, another in the old house above Lothar's hideout).

    I recently posted this on the official BIS Torment board;

    Remember Zhuang Bei, the 'Asian' zombie in the Mortuary? When you first spoke to him he recited a poem. This poem is actually written by Li Shangyin (813-858 AD), a Chinese poet. You can read about the poem being in the game and an interpretation of it here .

    Also, here is a better translation of the poem, including the second half which was not included because it makes no sense due to cultural references:

    It is hard to meet; it is hard to part;
    The east wind is weak, the flowers die.
    With the spring silkworm's death, the threads end;
    When the candle turns to ash, the teardrops dry.
    The morning mirror frowns on my newly cloudy hair;
    Reading poems at night, feel the moon's cold stare.
    The Magic Mountain is not so far from here;
    A busy green bird will keep a careful eye.
