The sheer depth of modern RPG's never ceases to amaze me. The worlds that become our fantastical playgrounds are rich not only in the visual flair that modern technology provides, but also in the imagined history, philosophy, and theology created by talented authors. One such author, R. A. Salvatore (famous for The DemonWare Saga and the Forgotten Realms series, among many other works), has probably had a larger influence on modern fantasy story-telling than any other author. With Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, Salvatore brings his expansive, incredibly detailed universe into interactive reality with the help of acclaimed artist Todd MacFarlane (best known as the creator of Spawn), designer Ken Rolston (of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion fame), and 38 Studios (owned by former baseball player and avid gamer Curt Schilling). The result of such a consummate collaboration is an impressively deep third-person action/RPG that I thoroughly enjoyed.
