    As we know, Obsidian enjoys throwing Easter Eggs and references into their games, and from my experience PoE is of no exception.

    The first one I actually caught was the one regarding the Black Hound. When you ask the innkeep the story of the place, she responds by saying the owner of the inn and the black dog upstairs one day just up and left, and the dog has been waiting for the owner to return since...

    Now before I continue, it is important to note for anyone who might not now that many of the people working at Obsidian worked at Black Isle before it was shut down. They were beginning work on a few new games before that happened and one was Baldur's Gate 3 which was rumored to be titled... The Black Hound, which they unfortunately had to abandon. So the story of the dog at the inn is basically Black Isle with Baldur's Gate 3 and how Pillars of Eternity is sort of the spiritual successor to it.

    An interesting tidbit, I was just curious if anyone else caught onto other references or Easter Eggs while playing PoE. If so feel free to share!

    How could I forget the miniature space pig pet?!

    Was I the only one who felt like the White March was a giant Icewind Dale throwback?

    If you play the game on Easter and collect the dragon/wurm eggs I guess they would effectively become Easter Eggs.
