Deathwatch: Art Of Extraction
danger looms sudden and unexpected? No, such mere animal instinct!
Courage rather is the willful scorn of death, and the deliberate
acceptance of suffering, for honour, for duty, or for the Emperor.
Beyond this, the true glory—this is the will to face horror, to turn
death upon itself, to strangle nightmare with bare hands, and to do it
unsung and unknown for the salvation of Mankind.”
–Inquisitor Silas Marr, Reflections in a Glass Darkly
This is the reason I am so exasperated about the poor cover art. Honestly, this is INTERIOR art! In a world where most companies put good art on the cover, and line drawings on the interior of their books, Fantasy Flight Games puts this as a chapter cover. Of the last chapter no less.
Maybe I just don't understand game design. Though it is refreshing to have the interior art exceed my expectations. Usually the opposite is true.
