  • John Donne references for Ancient Apparition?

    I love the references to Andrew Marvell in Enchantress' lines and the Philip K. Dick references from Bane and Clockwerk. Might I suggest some literary references for AA?

    John Donne's poem "The Apparition" is pretty hilarious and I think some of the lines would fit well with AA.

    When dying he could say "By they scorn I am dead" or when getting a kill he could say "A verier ghost than I." I think it'd be cool.

    My only problem with your suggestion is that the references you're trying to make are remarkably obscure. Otherwise, good idea. Since Valve has proven that it's willing to make somewhat obscure references before, I'm all for this.
