: Yeah, sounds like a good place for it. —[[User:Legoless|Legoless]] ([[User talk:Legoless|talk]]) 15:05, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
 
==Pelagius the Mad==
On [[Lore talk:Pelagius Septim III]], the book ''The Madness of Pelagius'' is suggested as based on Caligula or the play ''The Madness of George III''. If anything it's more likely based on the play as Pelagius is the III too.

==The Book of Circles==
Copied from [[Lore talk:Frandar Hunding]]:
:''The Book of Circles may be an allusion to The Book of Five Rings, an actual book written by historical Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi, famed as the victor of dozens of duels from an early age. He wrote the book late in his life as a practical guide to combat, and is still prized today among martial artists and even businessmen.''
:''Hunding himself may be a tribute to Musashi, who was also an acclaimed duelist in his youth, and subject of many films, video games and serial dramas in modern times. Hunding is mentioned to have been a duelist until the age of thirty, which happens to be the age Musashi was believed to have his most significant duel. After this, Musashi continued the Way of the Sword, but no longer killed his opponents, preferring civilised bouts with wooden swords to demonstrate his technique. Musashi eventually settled down and lived on a lord's estate later in life, but retired to a mountaintop shrine in his final years to write and meditate. Hunding's time as a hermit after thirty may be a subtle nod to Musashi as well. The Redguards' reverence of Hunding is not unlike Musashi's popularity in Japan even centuries after his death (perhas most notably having an Imperial Battleship from WW2 named in his honor). Schools that teach his style, Niten Ichi-Ryu, still exist today.'' — Unsigned comment by Alandro Sul (talk • contribs) at 15:58 on 10 March 2013
 
This seems to be a solid connection. [[User:The Silencer|<font color="B8860B">Silence is Golden</font>]]<sup>[[User talk:The Silencer|<font color="800000">Break the Silence</font>]]</sup> 03:26, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
 
==Nulfaga==
On [[Daggerfall talk:Nulfaga|Nulfaga]]'s talk page, it is said that she recites some lines from ''Lost Paradise'': ''"United thoughts and counsels, equal hope / And hazard in the once glorious enterprise / Joined with me once, now misery hath joined / In equal ruin!"''.
