First it was the gore
. Then it was the fatalities
. Then it was the promise of nudity
. Then it was the nipple toggle
. Now there's more controversy in the Age of Conan
- the Stygians.Richard Cobbett
brought up a new area where AoC
might offend some of the more religious people in the population in his online journal. The Stygians, the infamous followers of Set, love demonic magic. And when we say love demonic magic, we really mean that they can turn into demons if you're a Herald of Xotli
or summon demons if you're a Demonologist
. The word Stygian can even be translated as "dark" or "infernal".
While this is pretty tame for those of us who are into fantasy settings, it's just another part of where AoC
can be offensive to those around it. Funcom
has no doubt pushed the envelope with this game, but as any good Conan fan will say, "It's just another normal day in Hyboria."
