It was interesting to see, on Steam, the celebration of the 10,000 days-long development of Unreal World.

I happened to be re-reading 'The Compleat Enchanter' in which travelers arrived within the Kalevala and joined Lemmenkainen in a fight against the folk of Pohjola. There was the 'Elk of Hiisi' and a wall of serpents that turned out to be just magicked lingonberries, stories of enormous banquets and challenges, of deadly assassins and outsized heroics.

Fun reading these and recognizing some aspects of the game borne out.
