Pretty much yes to both. Pendrake is a sort of Biologist version of Indiana Jones- he goes around finding strange monsters and writes about them. The Iron Kingdom's Monsternomicon books are written as if they were his field notes.Very very nice. But what exactly is he doing? Inspecting the creature's teeth, or putting his hand down it's throat?
dude, I'm really digging the source lighting you've done and to be honest I want to know how you did it. I'm not always a fan of your stuff.. but you've changed my thinking on this. I'd really hate to see what you went up against if you only got silver?? and what kind of tips did they suggest to improve, I'm curious of their thinking!
