The Lord Inquisitor – Prologue

Following up on the last post, the Prologue to Lord Inquisitor was released today and I am still shaking with excitement. Just take a look yourselves. The way Erasmus captured the look and feel of Holy Terra, the quality of the animation. To use an in-universe explicative: Golden Throne! Here …
