Huh, they look a lot like the Arcanist from Flight Rising...

I wonder if this is where Blizzard got the idea for Fel (from World of Warcraft)...  Anyone else notice this? I did. Voidwalker Emoticon

Since World of Warcraft came out in 2004, Warcraft the franchise some years before that, and Martha Wells wrote her first book in the series in 2011 I'm going to go with "No".

"Fell" also means "fierce, cruel, dreadful, savage, destructive, deadly" (according to Dictionary.com). I'd guess that Blizzard and Martha Wells both got the idea from that.

Wonderful to have the Fell visualized like this! All these designs work so very well with the descripitions in the books - just fantastic! :+fav:

....Is it a coincidence that Arcanist resembles these guys a little? :U

They have most definitely earned their name.

... Actually, they almost remind me of Alduin.

Fell are a species conceived by Martha Wells in her "Books of the Raksura." They are the villains, and come in a few different types, sort of the way bees have workers, drones, a queen, etc.
