Interview about upcoming 'Total Conversion' release 'Nehrim: At Fate's Edge' with one of the developers. From the article:
"There are some mods from which we may have gotten one or two ideas, sure, but this isn't the big deal. Most inspiration we gain is from Morrowind - Oblivion's precursor, and from the Gothic games - a German RPG series with a great dirty, dark style. Additionally, we use several objects jusuch as weapons or creatures developed by other modders in Nehrim, of course with their permission."
