I've been playing the Mardek games again, partly because I've left my old saves far behind (and they likely vanished from the old computer's memory by now anyway), partly because I'd never actually gotten especially far before, and partly because I felt like it. (Legion is still the best.)
And I have to say, Muriance here may be one of my favorite video game villains.
The best part? There are strong implications that this guy is a legitimate threat to the whole of reality.
