These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Shout-Out: Maybe, "That barbarian's scar" isn't due to another very well known barbarian. Hell, she even directly mentions Hyperborea. Although, considering there are two Hyperboreas in the Mythos, it might be refering to Clark Ashton Smith's Hyperborea stories, were the Sleeper of N'kai plays a role.
