Skyrim:Easter Eggs

While I was visiting Skyrim on UESPWiki. I was reading several Easter Eggs. Thought this one was cool.

  • On occasion, you may come across a headless NPC riding a horse. They are both ghosts. This is likely a reference to the "Headless Horseman".

^^Has anyone spot this? If so, the location? Thanks.

I saw a video of this and it was right outside Falkreath. I'm not sure if it is always there though.

E-E: Surely the mage dude's name (forgot) is a reference to "Samus Aran". There's no way that is a coincidence and could've been overlooked. Weird place to tribute though :/

hes there sometimes between 10 pm and 5 am i think.
SPOILER ALERT!
During the Dark Brotherhood quests, you will be given a power, which when you use it summons Lucien Lachance to fight for you oblivion players will know who he is

Also Miaq the liar is around again, as in oblivion he wanders around speakin bullshit with some hints to the game in there, and yes he mentions callipers again lol
Cant remember where i saw him but will update if i see him again, but seems to be random so could be anywhere, anytime

Like the horseman Miaq is a random encounter and can happen anywhere but once you find him he never leaves that spot. A good spot for random encounters is the road from Riverwood to Whiterun I've had ten there on my twenty hour file.

I found Maiq within the first ten minutes of the game so was stoked, and of course the return of shadowmere is cool, although no longer invulnerable apparently, which i havent tested for meself.

Actually, I have found M'aiq in 4 different locations. Once up in the far north wedt. Once by the bandit tower slightly east of Whiterun that crosses the river(not sure on name), and twice on the road to Riften about 5 minutes apart.

Did anyone ever come across 3 NPC swimming at the hot springs.

Not so much swimming as just relaxing.

NOT MY VID

Fun that it took me 500 hours to find this

Better version

"M'aiq's father was also called M'aiq. As was M'aiq's father's father. At least, that's what he said."

Both the horseman and Miaq are awesome and on random encounters.

However, in Bleakcoast Cave there is an Empire Strikes Back Easter Egg just think back to when Luke was with the Wampa...

Maiq is not in a fixed location. He constantly wanders about, so finding him will be down to luck more than anything.

What's this 300 Easter egg? I'm intrigued

I've seen the headless horseman ghost several times. I even tried to run after it but couldn't keep up. It's a nice touch to the game.

was going to say the same, i saw the headless horseman but could never keep up, he seems to slow down if you walk but when you get nearer he just speeds up and is gone.

I found Headless outside Whiterun. I haven't found Maiq but I know what makes him special is that he's showed up in EVERY Elder Scrolls game.
