* Much like the Mace of Disruption from ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'', St. Ydwen's Redeemer is a weapon enchanted with a spell that can [[TurnUndead instantly destroy Vessels]] upon a successful hit. Very useful when fighting undead, [[spoiler:and just as useful when you're battling liches.]]

* The "Heritage Hill" ambient track features a snippet that sounds very similar to [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Samson's Tale.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: An inn in Gilded Vale is named "The Black Hound," which was the possible title of [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Baldur's Gate 3.]] You can even get the in-game namesake black hound as a pet.
* A narrator encourages you to [[Franchise/BaldursGate gather your party before venturing forth]].
* In Defiance Bay, you come across a child asking you to buy him a knife in exchange for a secret. One of the responses is "You can't have a dagger! [[Film/AChristmasStory You'll poke your eye out!]]"
* The Goose and Fox inn is a reference to the gaming forum [=NeoGAF=] due to several members pooling enough money to reach the backer award of creating their own inn. Site founder Evilore contributed enough money for [[http://i.imgur.com/HKYBEPV.jpg his likeness]] to be in the game as a portrait for creatable characters and is mentioned in-game as "Erol of Levi".
** Similarly, the Wailing Banshee Inn refers to gaming website [=GameBanshee=] and you can find several [=RPGCodex=] references and usernames at "Club of Refined and Prestigious Gentlemen" room inside the Salty Mast.
* In Sacrificial Bloodlines quest, you can shove [[spoiler: baby Vela]] into your stash indefinitely, likely a nod to ''VideoGame/ThroneOfBhaal''[='=]s [[spoiler:inventory baby]]. Having her in your inventory when you finish the game actually changes the ending narrative!
* If you sided against [[spoiler: Danna]] in At All Costs, an angry noble will confront you about killing his fiance. One possible response?
-->'''Watcher:''' [[Film/ThePrincessBride It's possible.]] [[ButForMeItWasTuesday I kill a lot of people.]]
** And earlier when asked by their group of thugs who you are, you can respond with [[Film/ThePrincessBride "No one to be trifled with."]]
