This afternoon Blizzard ran their monthly live stream conversation with a developer, and saw John Yang and Nevalistis join two fans for some action. They finished up through GR30 and Nevalistis scored 4 legendary items and a set item from the final GRG, so lucky to her. The conversation during the live stream covered a […]
The Season One leaderboard race quickly turned into a farce (in Softcore, at least) when players exploited the huge exp provided by several bounties that could be completed by undergeared characters on Torment 6. All people had to do was party up (for the greater exp) and keep creating games until they got the proper […]

Book of Cain Artwork DemonstrationPosted 30 Dec 2011 by
Thanks to Softshack for pointing us to a blog entry by artist James Gurney, in which he shows off one of his pencil drawings from the Book of Cain. Here’s the artist’s description of the piece.
A few months ago, Blizzard Entertainment, the game publisher that had developed World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo, commissioned me to do some pencil drawings for their book called “Diablo III: Book of Cain.” The book has just been released.
I drew the floating city of Pandemonium, the center of creation in the Diablo universe. While I worked, I shot some video. My parakeet, Mr. Kooks, hung out on my shoulder and supervised.
Not only is the artwork of the city revealed in the post, but there’s a short video which shows the page in the actual Book of Cain, plus some video of the artist at work. It pains me that a human can create something like that with just a pencil, a tool with which I was scarcely able to fill in Scantron ovals, but there it is.
We’ve never seen Pandemonium City before, but it’s just lore, not really a spoiler, since this is merch, not the game plot. (OR ARE THEY THE SAME?!!!1!?) If you do want spoilers, of extraordinary magnitude, about the Book of Cain and Diablo III as a whole, check out this forum thread started by RisingRed — the info from the book and theories about the game’s story are flying thick and fast there.
