A good choice of name if I may say so, the Barghest, Black Shuck, Old Grim and all of the other alias' that the Black Hound uses, still echo throughout mythology. Indeed i'm not sure about other parts of the world, but in the Isles the legend looms large in many places, some say that the hound runs with the Wild Hunt, others that the Devil or Wotan send them forth. It's an interesting myth for sure, and an extremely ambiguous one, which adds to the attraction for me.


Edit: There's a local legend of a witch being hung in a nearby town square, and the hound which came and howled at that place the very hour and day she died for nine years following.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.


Tea for the teapot!

What if the mysterious backer was the Black Hound!



Josh wrote such a great concept, it became self-aware and lives on in the internet! O_O

Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

By the way, for the curious, here is the one screenshot that was ever released for the Cancelled BG3 Black hound:




Say, it does look like that place from the beginning of original NWN2 campaing...

It would be of small avail to talk of magic in the air...
