    I'm copying this from a discussion I had on another forum back in December 2008. There are several allusions to real life religions, cultures, mythologies, and so fourth that roleplayers and lore junkies might be interested in.

    There are several more examples I've become aware of since posting that. Captain Johne and the three adventurers that would later become the Shadowlords sailed on a ship known as 'the Ararat'; an allusion to the mountain that the Biblical Ark landed upon. The Cu Sidhe (or Cu Sith) is a giant spirit dog or wolf from Irish-Gaelic folklore and legend that bears souls away to the Afterlife.

    Are there others you know?
