Dungeons & Dragons Games - Trivia & Easter Eggs
#1
In "Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara", the female Thief's character design and name (Moriah, if selected her default name) was based on Mariah from Shonen Jump's series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Edit: In the Gamest Mook vol.17: Capcom Illustrations interview with former Capcom's illustrator Kinu Nishimura, she stated that she became addicted to Hirohiko Araki's work (known mangaka for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series), while working on Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness. And is also responsible for the characters' design in Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara.


Can anyone check if her fighting skills are the same as Mariah, like knives/daggers, please.

—Do you have a favorite mangaka or illustrator?

Nishimura: My all-time favorite is Jun Seimi, who does the illustrations for Wizardry and other games — it was his work that made me aware of game illustrations. Our own AKIMAN is right up there, too. I became addicted to Hirohiko Araki while working on Cyberbots, and I’m also a big fan of the works of Kazuhiko Shimamoto.

Actually, Mariah's fighting style consists of turning other peolpe into living magnets, that's why during the footage of the JoJo FG, you see knives "magically" fliying to her opponents. That's completely different from Moriah's fighting style if you ask me.

By the way, I find quite funny that a random villian of the week inspired the creation of a videogame character. But the again, that Dungeons & Dragons game was also made by Capcom, and since Capcom has such a hard-on over JoJo, (The Street Fighter series is a good example) it's not really suprising.
