I'm not that much surprised …
I think I've found a slight nod towards Tolkien from within DDO : It's a bit difficult to describe … In one of the Necro1 quests you get the optional to ollect 4 lost tomes/books of Vol …
… And one of them has the title of some sort of "cat wizard" or so. At least that's how it is translated.
A cat wizard ? that could be either a character from the "Feline Fantasy" sub-genre, or - Sauron. Because in the very earliest versions of Tolkien's "Legendarium", Sauron was nothing but a massive, huge, evil-minded cat. It was nothing but a kind of gatekeeper for the early version of the big bad evil type, I've forgot his name. The one who had destroyed the Two Trees.
So - with thinking around the edges this way, this *might* be an easter egg of some sort - a nod towards the (early) works of Tolkien (upon which most parts of (A)D&D are based, anyway.
