After Haazheel Thorn raises an army of the dead to fight the empire, an officer in the imperial camp rushes into Emperor Haghendorf's tent to report that they're being attacked by the living dead. Haghendorf, whose bed is surrounded by ghosts, quips "Yes, I had been made aware".
During a feast Wismerhill organizes as Baron of Moork, a Funny Background Event has someone commenting on why one of two Black Moon priests is doing a Levitating Lotus Position on the ceiling. The other priest just notes "meditating, my son".
When Wismerhill becomes the new emperor, he has his children looked after by three Big Red Devil demons that he employs as nannies.
