|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.|
Easter Eggs are secrets that the developers put in the game to give people a laugh when they find them. Dragonborn has a number of such jokes. Easter Eggs differ from in-game references in that they have been intentionally hidden from the player and are unusual with regards to their surroundings.
Cultural References are objects, characters, or events in the game that refer to a specific element of popular culture; they differ from Easter Eggs in that they are usually integrated into the game world, and strong parallels can be drawn between the in-game event and the specific work being referenced. Cultural references also include allusions to elements of real-world culture, such as historical events and folklore.
If you think you have found an Easter Egg or reference, please post your idea on this article's talk page before adding it to this article.
The Lusty Riekling
- In Benkongerike there is a riekling hut tucked away all by itself. It is full of dozens of copies of The Lusty Argonian Maid and multiple bundles of linen cloth. The Lusty Argonian Maid, a pornographic play, and the linen cloths, which are similar to tissues or any other device used to clean up a mess, are both closely associated with masturbation. There is also a telekinesis spell tome hidden under the books, and in Skyrim, telekinesis is used to make items come to you...
The Retching Netch
- When prompted, Geldis Sadri will tell the player the story of how his cornerclub, The Retching Netch, was named. This story is a reference to a similar story of a drunken outburst in the 1996 film Twister: "So he strolls up to the twister and says 'Have a drink!' and he chucks the bottle into the twister and it never hits the ground!"
The Sallow Regent
- In White Ridge Barrow, a book named The Sallow Regent rests on a stone pedestal. This is likely a reference to the fictional play The King in Yellow, which was used as a recurring motif in a collection of short stories published by Robert W. Chambers in 1895, and later incorporated into the Cthulhu Mythos.
