Sometimes Turbine can really wow me with the thought and effort they put into the little details they put into the game. For example, this week a player named Rippentuck posted on the forums the similarities to the decorative stone behind the superior scholar station to a real piece of Viking art called the Sleipnir Stone. Rip even shared this wonderful comparison image to see both at once.
Rip wasn’t the only one to notice it as this was reported by Daeross back in September in a different forum thread.
All this makes me feel super un-observant. However, I’m glad it is there and Turbine took the time to make it and I’m glad we have very clever players able to recognize the effort and share with the rest of us!
