Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • One of the loading screens features someone clad in full Dwarven armor. Interestingly, the shield shown on the loading screen has two handles; a horizontal one near the bottom of the shield, and a vertical one in the center. In-game, there is only one handle on the Dwarven shield, which is the vertical handle.
