As a loyal customer of HGI and a regular reader of HGI News, I learned a new word through Language Lessons, eldritch. A few days later, while I was reading the Offical Guide to EverQuest, I stumbled across this sentence: "Their eldritch powers of Death give them the abilty to Locate Corpse, a spell that works much like a Ranger's Tracking ability." Without HGI, I would have never been able to figure that sentence out! They were true to their word, I did amaze and surprise my friends! Thanks, HGI! - Jennifer L. Hill.
