Regarding the world design, lead artist Terje Lundberg said, "Our main impressions about the look and feel of Hyboria come from our interpretation of the stories written by Robert E. Howard. When you read Howard''s work you''re immediately drawn into a gritty world of dark and ancient forces, and mighty and decadent civilizations. You feel the HOTK Gold great weight of the ages and sense the very history in the crumbling mortar and the ruins. Therefore we''ve been mindful from the outset to create a world which is true to Howard''s writing. There is majesty in Hyboria but it''s of a monolithic, brutal and primitive kind - it certainly isn''t "high fairie" where everything appears as though it was built only yesterday and is devoid of context."
