Former Elder Scrolls Devs Rpg The Wayward Realms Gets A Spooky, Skyrim
Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he’d stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He’s also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own. Way bigger than most other games you can think of. Big cities with hundreds or thousands of NPCs, deep, dark, dangerous forests, gigantic mountain ranges, sprawling swamps and marshlands, vast oceans, and more, brought to life through dynamic, procedural generation.

- However, they must first prove their worth battling rivals, mercenaries, monsters, spirits, and demons.

Something more I would assume for orks but not elves. Maybe I am use to other elves being elegant, or sexy so I think it will take time to get use to. I guess it’s a good thing, something different and not same old same old and cliche.
