OoOoOoO OOoOOoo OOOoOoo OOoOooO OOoOOoO OOooooO Oooooo OooOOOO OOoOOOo OOoOOoo OOoOooO OOoOOOo OOooOoO Oooooo OooOOOo OOooooO OOOoooo OOooooO Oooooo OoOoOOo OOooooO OOoOOoo OOoOOoo OOooOoO OOOOooO Oooooo OooOoOO OOoOOOo OOoOooO OOooOOO OOoOooo OOOoOoo OOOooOO Oooooo OOoOOOO OOooOOo Oooooo OooooOO OOoOooo OOooooO OOoOOOO OOOooOO
The "OoooOoOo OoOoOoO"s found in Studies in Spirit Speaking are a reference to Ultima Online. Dead players in UO could not communicate with living players; all they saw was "OooOoooOo"s. Players could study spirit speak to learn what they were saying, which then would reveal parts of the speech.

Another reference to Ultima Online. Napa Valley is a UO server. Knights of Chaos was a guild, likely a guild which a WoW developer was a part of.
