    So arguably our main thing – or should have been our main thing - was our 10th anniversary in July... erm just before the last update actually... Don't worry if you didn't notice it, to be honest we didn't either and there wasn't much to shout about at the time, but take the completed magazine archive and the ongoing work on the sources archive as a token of appreciation and gratitude.

Environmental concept art from Blood Omen 2 depicting the snowy town of Valeholm. Ultimately the town was cut and not seen in the final game although superficial resemblance to settlements in the Canyons may imply parts were adapted into other locations.
