Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The line of dialogue "That belongs in a museum!" is a reference to the identical quote from the 1989 film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, whose title character is an archaeologist.
  • The archaeologists were voiced by players who attended Runefest 2019. Known player voiceovers include elder heart, at the destroyed golem excavation hotspot.
  • The examine text "Good at digging up the past" is a pun on the idiom, "to dig up the past," meaning to bring up something unpleasant or embarrassing from the past.
