This image depicts a fantasy version of the Storm Crow Alehouse, a real-world fantasy themed tavern. This one is obviously filled with various references to fictional works. Can we identify the whole list of them?

    a head start for whoever wants to post an answer: Geralt of Rivia from Witcher front-left; Boba Fett image above him; Data to the right of that, Navi at the bar, Majora's Mask on the back wall. – KutuluMike Nov 29 '16 at 22:53

    Maybe Cthulhu on the second table, but not sure, also a Star Trek char next to him(don't know the series at all). First at the bar is the protagonist from fallout (4 i believe?) and a Storm Trooper helmet next to him and Yoda, the DnD dice close to the crow, and next to it the Necronomicon(?), also Cloud's sword next to the first painting (upright). A lightsaber and Frostmourne(from WC) at the far end. The Deathly Hollows sign above the bar next to Frostmourne. Han Solo(frozen state) under Majora's mask, and next to Han is a Face hugger (?), next to it is Solaire Of Astora(?). – Schneejäger Nov 29 '16 at 23:07

    @Mooz Data? Mal Reynolds? Inigo Montoya? Geralt? None of the ones I recognise are villains. – Rand al'Thor Nov 30 '16 at 0:05

    Someone who's regularly at those communities should post comment to that Reddit thread and the Deviantart page to direct people here. – b_jonas Nov 30 '16 at 1:16

I'll add a rough coordinate grid drawn on top of the image so it's easier to name which parts of the image we're talking about. (There's so many objects and characters in this image and it's hard to tell which ones are significant that I don't dare to number them individually: I'd surely leave some of them out.)

(same image with a rough coordinate grid drawn on)

Mounted objects (upper row)

  • A5: unidentified picture
  • D1: Vigo painting (Ghostbusters 2)
  • F2: Cloud's Buster Sword (Final Fantasy VII)
  • G2: unknown painting
  • H3: weapon maybe, possibly a mace?
  • J3: Majora's Mask from the Zelda videogames of Nintendo
  • M3: possibly Luke's green light saber (Star Wars)
  • N3: Frostmourne, Arthas's sword from Warcraft III

Mounted objects (head height)

  • I4: Han Solo frozen in a carbonite block from Star wars

  • Q4: Deathly Hallows sign

Posters on the columns

  • C3: Boba Fett (Star Wars)
  • D3: Bossk (Star Wars bounty hunter)
  • F4: Tank Girl from the eponymous comic book and film (this one is easy, there's actually a yellow on white text saying "TANK GIRL" above her).
  • G4: poster for Barbarella: queen of the Galaxy film (1968)
  • H4: One Million Years B.C. (1966 Film)

  • I6: The protagonist from Journey 2012 video game
  • J5: Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly
  • L6: Sir Bedivere, from Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • M6: Inigo Montoya from Princess Bride
  • N5: Death from Neil Gaiman's The Sandman
  • O4: Navi from the Avatar movie
  • P5: Angela from Marvel Comics
  • R5: A Vault Dweller from Vault #117 (Fallout videogame series)
  • S6: Yoda from Star Wars
  • T5: bartender, possibly Rachel from Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak; or Jubilee, a mutant from Marvel comics

Table in the middle

  • E6: cards of the Gwent collectable card game from the Witcher series, held by Geralt
  • F7: unidentified chalice
  • G7: Gwent game being played by Geralt and the journeyer
  • G6: unidentified flat black object with white icons to the left of the collectible cards

Table in front

  • D9: possibly Tom Riddle's diary with a basilisk tooth in it
  • K9: d20 dice
  • K9: some sort of magic rune circle drawn directly on the table
  • Q8: drinking glass
  • O7: black songbird, probably one of the storm crows to match the name of the bar
  • O9: a Black Lotus from Magic: the Gathering trading card game in a vase (NB. based on Chris Rahn's illustration of the card in the Vintage Masters online-only set, not the more iconic original illustration of Christopher Rush)

Other

  • O3 to T2: five more black songbirds
  • T6: Finn's helmet from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (notice bloody handprint) on bar counter

    aww, maybe the grid is the way to go. – Jack B Nimble Nov 29 '16 at 23:21
  • The wizard creature in red robes is the protagonist from the game 'Journey'. The devs have called it 'the journeyer', but I don't think that's official. – CBredlow Nov 30 '16 at 0:26

    The unknown gunman looks like Luke on Hoth. Can't remember if he ever fires his blaster though. – DCShannon Nov 30 '16 at 1:08

    Also D9 is not "possibly". It literally says "Tom Riddle's Diary" on it. Can't edit easy on mobile right now – user31178 Nov 30 '16 at 4:00

    O7 might be the Raven. E5 looks like a head floating above shoulders, not just an unattached sphere. – Rawling Nov 30 '16 at 8:50

  • My money for the redhead is on Red Sonja – Adele C Nov 29 '16 at 23:56
  • To clear up confusion, the artist tagged the image with #thesandman, which makes it pretty clear the women is Death from that series. – user31178 Nov 30 '16 at 0:21
  • I am reasonably sure that the redhead is Angela from Marvel and Image comics, and have edited accordingly. – Politank-Z Nov 30 '16 at 0:29

    I'm pretty sure the big bird in front is the titular Storm Crow. – user31178 Nov 30 '16 at 4:04
