Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has hidden Easter egg straight from Lord of the Rings. The clever sleuths over at Eurogamer have found a grumpy reference from Bilbo Baggins himself.
Druids and Little Folk
In order to find the Easter egg, you need to head to the west side of the city Gloucester (Glowecestre). There is a commune of pagans living in the town, inside some moss-covered homes and in one of those homes you can find a note. The note says: “One of the little folk asked me to make the door smaller, as he wants to keep unruly houseguests from his house. After the nonsense with the druid last fall, I can see his point.” And to really hammer home the reference there is a ring sitting on top of the note.
Now, the “little-folk”, moss-covered homes and the druid is an obvious nod to Tolkien’s magnum opus the Lord of the Rings. We can assume that the cranky writer of the note is Bilbo Baggins complaining about the unruly druid Gandalf. However, the reference goes further than that. Apparently, Tolkien went to Lydney Park in Gloucestershire in 1929 for inspiration. Ubisoft clearly did their homework when making Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
