And no one as a giant spider... which is odd considering that's exactly what the spinner/weaver is...

No, i'm sure it's just a coincidence...


(all giant spiders are based on Shelob, 90% of modern fantasy is based on Tolkien anyhow)

Well through D&D (and lately WoW, but that's for noobs and corporate suits).

Actually I think that's one of the things I'm most worried about: way many pretty landscapes that would just as well be cliffs, woods or otherways unpassable. What good do beautifull graphics do when we get jaded and find something prettier?

Don't you think that's kind of an overestimation? What about Lovecraft and Robert Howard, to name just two?

I like this screenshot. The only thing I'd change is to make the trees dead and leafless as you approach the Pit lords.
Infiltrator out.

One's horror, and the other is only about 10%...

Sure, some are mixes of two or more, but no point in overcomplicating the issue for what was being discussed.

Wow, that's the eye and the tower in different places... nice cross-reference.

But is it intentional?!

You're either 10 or you've never read fantasy (of any kind).

No offence.
