Bree is at least as old als LotR, I suppose
But I have to admit that I regularly draw comparisons to ZG in a couple of shows that I watched. The last ones were Carnival Row (d'oh), The Alienist and Fullmetal Alchemist.
And I still believe that there would be one WoW designer who knows RangerWickett's adventures.
I'm only now watching Penny Dreadful, so expect me to work in some references in upcoming adventures.
