The City of the Dead is the name for labyrinthian city in the Dimension of Death where Lord Azriel rules.
The Skeletons can be found among the silent stones and trackless passages in the City of the Dead.
Behind the scenesEdit
The name of the city comes from the KQ8 website, and is also mentioned in the level directories as "DeadCity". However, the term is not mentioned in game. It is mentioned as part of an extended background on skeleton guards.
The term City of the Dead shows up in the KQ8 programmer's notes as well (see KQ8 development).
The inspiration for this name seems to come from the Egyptian idea of a City of the Dead, or the 'Cairo Necropolis', as there is a strong Egyptian influence throughout the Dimension of Death.
