Laura composed that Intro Theme for EK back in 2015 when she was 14

Not many - at all - would think of, much less be so successful at, oboe/basson and flute/clarinet duet, nor use bells/xylophone so successfully as a tool of crecendo.

~shrug~ Another one for the "kansas and the three words/when, 'merica, when" file. I honestly spent most of the credits-reading looking at the image sources and thought the theme was copyright-free from one of the professional orchestras with open historical composition.

I very much do add my voice to those suggesting you use it as an entire-series theme.

edit : also...

Lesser art, also called Sorcery...

...literally, "of the source," basically utopian/ecstatic Deism. "It's all perfect, we just have to get it back to its idealized root state." Shares a lot with psychology in the differentiation between primary and substitution needs - a toddler who decks another child for stealing their toy does not actually want to hit someone as a thing in itself, it is a substitution or imperfect, indirect means gesturing towards an initial, source impulse.

Because of the word roots, "sorcerous wizard" is one of the few claims one can make to someone of a materialist-aetheist sceptic to esoteric arts and be taken seriously - eventually, anyways. (same root as "drunkard," but with wisdom - and no guarantee of any more success than Thuram's track record).

Just out of curiosity, planning on taking the word roots into account? I know it's probably not a common question, but with eight billion people on the planet, there's probably a few sorcerous wizardfolk who actually identify as such on the basis of word roots. So, y'know...

...anyways, great game.

Day by day, work continues and the world of Archaelund grows. This is often a proccess that begins with concept art:



Then it is 3D modeled:

What are these strange creatures in the lower-left corner? One is purple, the other yellow. You're making a game based on the EK universe, there weren't any elves there, were there? Or have you decided to add people with Golden skin, from the Islands? Then who is the first woman?

EK got the strange hood.
Archaelund gets the "funny mask".
Note in the screen shot all the heroes are wearing masks.

Hero: --Immediately stabs shady traveler--
Companion: "How'd you know he was an Assassin?"
Hero: "He wasn't wearing a mask..."
