The inhabitants of this village are known for their talkativeness and tendancy to exaggerate, which makes them good companions for a round of drink, but impossible to tolerate for long stretches of time'.
On the northeastern outskirts of the village is an easel which is facing a field of haystacks. This may be a reference to Claude Monet, the famous impressionist painter who devoted an entire series to Haystacks.
The name of the village can be a reference to Yantar, a territory in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl, in which the ultimate goal is to reach the Wish Granter. The Wish Granter also has caveats regarding the wishes it grants, just like Gaunter O'dimm.
