Gravestone inscriptions[edit | edit source]

The names and inscriptions on the gravestones abound with Easter eggs. Most of them are references to CD Projekt RED staff being directly involved in the development of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (here marked with Real person including his/her function). However, they also hold references to other artists and artistic works.
