Default Prince Jeffery.

I can't be the only one that thought the Prince Jeffery in that quest was a reference to Mr. Jeffrey Blake of Hyperion before I actually got to him. We killed the Handsome sorcerer (Jack) and are tasked with ensuring that "Jeffery" doesn't become a tyrannical dictator like Jack had when he eventually (possibly) takes over Hyperion.

I am aware of the reference that the quest is actually about but just from the dialogue before then, I had high hopes that it was actually something related to the game world. Seems like wasted potential to me.

Lol, I just posted about this in another forum. It's a Game of Thrones reference.

I have had no interest in game of thrones , so I could care less of the books, let alone the show or game, but as soon as I saw that chair he was sitting in I was aware what it was.

Rest of it though was lost on me. (Since I didn't follow any of the show/book/ect)

That quest in a word: cathartic.

You don't have to watch the show or read the books to get what's going on there. If you have even a vague touch on the geek pulse, it should make enough sense through cultural osmosis.

As I said, I know the reference but it could/should have been about in-game characters.

Well there's no in-game character to succeed Jack. His only child as far as we know was Angel. Mr. Blake would be the most suitable replacement, but he wouldn't have worked for this reference. Really it's just Tina making things up, referencing popular fantasy and sci-fi movies/books, and feeding the forums Moon Base and Butt Stallion desires.
