Bounty: If the awesome staff member will own up to their Mistiness, I will send them an authentic Crow T Robot t-shirt, and nominate Conan Exiles for an entry in the official MST3K fandom memory alpha.
If anybody else is a MST3K fan, or a PBS/Raúl Juliá fan, or a fan of pre-Matrix matrix films that may have been ripped off by The Matrix, here’s an Easter Egg for you.
Jamila, Pirate Queen
Provenance: Subject of Season 8 Episode 22 of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Raúl Juliá “stars” in the PBS American Playhouse show Overdrawn At The Memory Bank as none other than Aram Fingal. A supporting character is named Djamilla, mis-credited on many prints (including the one I was forced to painfully watch on Public TV as a kid sans riffing robots) as “Jamilla.”
I recently caught Takfor Detdu the Darfari Purge archer. “What a weird name for a Darfari”, I thought, then tried to say it out loud and it sounded like Swedish. Then I remembered Funcom is Norwegian (the languages are very closely related). “Takk for det, du” indeed.
And of course, even though it isn’t technically an Easter egg, every time I kill a Shemite cook I say to myself “then again, she might not”.
I love it, and thanks for sharing. One of my favorite rainy day activities is to watch a contemporary movie in its native language without subtitles. Takk is a sound I know very well! (Thanks for that, Dragon Tattoo series.)
