My second thread for today, as today is the day I completed the game
This one will hopefully be spoiler-free, so it should be safe to read for newcomers. I've made a pretty similar topic after Overture, but now it's time for a new one.
Anyway - what do you think the name stands for?
Penumbra- Black Plague
Wikipedia to the rescue;
"The umbra (Latin: "shadow") is the darkest part of a shadow. From within the umbra, the source of light is completely blocked by the object causing the shadow. This contrasts with the penumbra(Latin: paenes "almost, nearly" + umbra "shadow"), where the light source is only partially blocked and there is only a partial shadow."
"Overture (French ouverture, meaning opening) in music is the instrumental introduction to a dramatic, choral or, occasionally, instrumental composition."
Black Plague is an uncommon name for the Black Death which one killed about 50% of Europe's population.
Anyway - what do you guys the name suggests? Where does Penumbra fit in? Overture? How is the Tuurngait related to the black death?
I personally don't have any idea on it - none that I'm going to back up, that's for sure. I think that Penumbra might be Philip's behavior, and his relation to the Tuurngait. May it have to do with Philip's last known words, that the Tuurngait was mistaken about him?
I'm particularily interested in Overture - is it only a "kick off", a clever word used to start off the story, or does it have some meaning, concerning what happens in the game?
