Behind the scenes
The name of this quest references Rudyard Kipling's poem " The White Man's Burden," which has been interpreted in different ways: one is that the poem laments the slippery slope of imperial colonialism and was critical of British colonization; another suggests that the citizens of these colonies were not sufficiently grateful for the benefits of British imperialism; others still consider it racist.
