An Easter egg, as its name suggests, is a hidden surprise in an application. Easter eggs can be hidden in any kind of application -- a game, a word processor or even the operating system itself. In general, easter eggs are seen by doing something that most users wouldn't normally think to do.

(The most famous Exile 2 easter egg is, of course, entering Eas Ter Egg as a code at the Tower of Magi portal.)

I find it odd that teleporter coordinates have 3 sets of letters even though you only need to type in the first set. :P

Hahahaha

Even stuff you can appreciate...

I thought it was cool that one of the people in Silvar I think it was had a guitar :D

And when roaming I think its the central caves a dumb lizard attack you from some farm.

And, haha, In the Vahnatai caves, there was a corner that had heaps of stalgamites, if you pointlessly navigated through them, you recieved the message "You notice this area has alot of stalgemites." I thought that was pretty funny :D

And then, of course, there's the sign in the middle of a swamp bearing the message "CAUTION: SWAMP". I forget which Exile game that was in, but it was amusing in any case.

A/E 3. It also points out the irony on the sign. It goes something like

CAUTION! SWAMP! (This is about the most useless sign you've ever seen)

EDIT: You can find this sign on the coast of the same lake Ghikra's(sp) on. It's a little farther ahead. And in the middle of a swamp, in case you haven't heard.

That thing with the sign is exactly my kind of humor. very pointless stupid comments. this reminds me... How about a chicken farm in my scenario? Where you can buy chicken meat or something?

You also have (in at leat exile 3) this island south from... what was it again... Anyway, you have this island with a city on it, that was totally ruined by a storm. In the city, you have only one person left: some stupid priest who al the time creates undead, that eventually attack him and he gets killed. or nor. Then he killes the undead and just creates a new undead. :)

Shyguy has already done a chicken farm in Adventurers Club 3.

Aren't there inside jokes in the place where you get the Knowledge Brew formula, the Mad Monk building?

Not so much inside jokes as implicit and explicit references to kung fu movies of the worst sort.

—Alorael, who would consider several characters appearing in all of the Exiles inside jokes. But they're inside jokes, so you have to find them for yourself.

That's to bad... :(

Was this a BoX or a BoA scenario? If it was BoX I maybe will make one. if BoA, I wouldn't.

Just so you know, when people say "BoX", they mean Blades of Exile and Blades of Avernum. The abbreviation for Blades of Exile is BoE.
