Something special for the Developers Emeritus

Should we do something special for the Developers Emeritus in-game?

I was thinking something like special unique enchanted rings, or enchanted armor.

The Ring of Hermit, Ring of Gaff, Ring of Katze ...

Any thoughts?

oh man, that does sound appealing. I thought we were going to have a huge easter egg shrine that would host NPCs of ourselves with unique dialogue too. Either way, I really like that idea, think it would be fun to implement. But try to differentiate on the accessories, make some amulets too.

Although admittedly most of us former core members have already put god item easter eggs into the mod at some point or other...

I support this idea. Little rings and amulets and hidden enchanted doodads would be nice.

There was a time when the TR policy absolutely forbade these kinds of in-game tributes. But then again, it also looks like a great many things have changed over the years. I think the best easter eggs are the ones you can't tell are out-of-place unless the player is in on the joke.

Yes, agreed: We don't want them to stick out, but rather be extra interesting if you happen to know the real life backstory.

The items should be lore friendly and shouldn't be attached to a quest, nor an npc. Anything related to the members should fly over the head of most of the players.

Rats here, writing as anonymous because apparently that's become symptomatic of the old TR forums breathing its last.

Little nods to devs of yesteryear is an appealing idea. May the conversation (and the venting?) continue in the new forums.
