Are we supposed to pm you or post here?

I have three.
You can post here or PM me. While your other posts were good guesses, sadly neither qualified for an egg. But keep at it!

I had a third try: Thusle is Zathros from Babylon Five.

Afraid not. That guy is a bit of an inside joke at the expense of a PC in our old gaming group.

Since you've made a few earnest guesses, a little hint: Gisgo is a reference, just not the one you thought it was...

Hannibal reference?

Gisgo has a popular theme: the uniqueness of a hero in their race (like Elfo from Disenchanted or Happy Feet penguins). I’ve heard variations of that line.
But I missed the right path there. It’s about importance of the individual to accomplish things despite being in the masses. Like a Hobbit in LotR. Thinking that, I recalled St Crispins Day speech and then Hannibal. And then there was Gisgo.

I do not know if it is an Egg of sorts but the guy on Personal Intervention looks an awful lot like Pierce Brosnan who played James Bond but also in Noble House (and this :heroics has the trait Noble).

It is from Hannibal! Congratulations, :easteregg awarded for Gisgo!

A couple people have said the card resembles Brosnan. It was just a choice the artist made, I guess that's what a noble looks like to them. Which, to be fair, I guess he does have a bit of a patrician air. But it was not a reference, sadly.

I come back to this guy all the time, and not just because of the obvious Firefly reference, but he sure does look like a dragon playing Houses and Humans.

I remember a similar old comic about wizards rolling to see if they had successfully sent a FAX.

Teodoro Weinstein is doing the "Who has two thumbs and..." that the Fonze from Happy Days used to do all the time. And the "in spaaaaace!" bit is from "Pigs in Spaaaaace!" the recurring Star Trek parody sketch from The Muppet Show.
Two '70s references on one card!

The art work for the card "Lt. Cmdr Sir Sandar Van Othlezee" is a wonderful "late in life" image of my late friend Jimmy Doohan, more familiar to many as "Mr. Scott" of Star Trek.
It is both fitting this card gives a heroic technical action and allows for an Expert Jack of All Trades!

Where ever he is now, I am sure the card brings a smile to his face and he raises a whiskey
