" North American (bright and beautiful) and European (muted and gritty)."
Goody! I'm tired of the series being gritty. It wasn't at all a part of its appeal, or anything that made it stand aside from all the other RPGs out there. Maybe, if we ask real nice with big smiles, they'll turn the orcs into My Little Pony unicorns, and the swords into rainbow generators! Wheee!
