Based on some Inquisitor item descriptions, some Inquisitors skirted the borders of heresy by using Chthonic powers/items or Witch God ones.

Btw, yesterday I spotted on my screen (my background is a slideshow of all my GD screenshots) that there is a building in Lower Crossing that advertises shipping routes to Malmouth! I cannot find it right now but I do wonder if this was there from the beginnings as a clue towards things to come?

Well there actually is from the note Harbormaster's Log - Lower Crossing.

Wouldn't surprise me. They knew they were going to be making an expansion since it was part of the Kickstarter. In the same way that the Burrwitch Prison has always had Warden: Arthur Bruno over the gate. It may have shrunk a little over the years, but it's always been there.

Not sure I get the correlation. Malmouth is a place they had to have planned ahead of time to add the references to the game, Arthur Bruno is medierra, so of course they knew about him. No foresight there.

Yeah, but didn't need to put his name in the game. Both were planned, though Medierra's name on the prison is probably a bit of fun on the devs' part. See how many of the fans actually spot it.

Malmouth was also mentioned in another note.

Harbormaster's Log - Burrwitch.

Found the place! It is indeed the ferry. I need to check my old Alpha screenshots to see if it was always there.

Art was adjusted with the Act 1 redesign.

So some more interesting stuff from the dev stream:


The eyeless Rylok-like monsters were confirmed to be gargoyles, and they were said to be ambushers (you will not see them standing around idle) with possible flying entry animations. The Champion version looks to be lightning-powered. And I agree with the stream-creator, shoulder armor and helmet based on these guys would be awesome.

Two new constellations aka gods were introduced:
Yugol, the Insatiable Night - huh, this thing sounds like it is even more ancient and dangerous than Chthon.

Azrakaa , the eternal sands - consort to Aeon, the god of time.
