The fine folks at the Stratics snagged a recent interview with the very awesome Chad Haley and Tim Heydelaar about designing Neriak and Darklight Woods. What goes into the art of creating these zones? You'll have to read to find out!
Chad: When creating the Fae we were also creating the Arasai. Some decisions were made very early on. For instance - pastel colors, vibrant insect wings and whimsical hair was set aside for the Fae. The Arasai would receive very saturated colors, moth, mammal or magical wings and over the top hair.

We also added a few small tweaks such as the eyes glow, and the skin is a bit shinier.
