I added a new section: Dungeon Objects, in which you can find all objects to be found in the cathedral. If you have any suggestions, which objects could be added, write them in the comments.

In the previous news I wrote that David Brevik – the creator of Diablo and one of the founding members of Blizzard North, has informed that he is an advisor for a Diablo-like game but did not reveal its title. Now everything is clear as Chris Wilson, the main designer for Path of Exile has informed that David Brevik is an advisor for Chinese Path of Exile launch
Yes, David is an advisor for our Chinese Path of Exile launch. He's working with us and Tencent.
The below is correction from Brevik:
There has been a lot of speculation (and hope), but I'm not working on the Diablo franchise currently or in the near future...
Bill Roper, who recently visited Blizzard Entertainment headquarters together with David Brevik, also informed he is not working on Diablo, though it would be a great privilege.
I consider that David Brevik and Path of Exile is a good combination and wish him success.
Today David Brevik twitted that he is advisor for a diablo-like game.
For 20 years, Diablo-like games have evolved & surprised us. I'm proud to be the adviser for the game that pushes this genre to new heights.
It is unknown exactly which game this is regarding, but in addition Brevik uploaded a picture of the Libra constellation. The zodiac sign Libra corresponds to the period between 23.09 and 22.10 and the sun travels accross the Libra constallation between 31 October and 23 Novemnber so this could have to do with some new mysterious game. However, considering Brevik's recent visit at Blizzard we can think it could be about Diablo, but it could also be about any other game
David Brevik and Bill Roper have put on Twitter a photo of the front of Blizzard Entertainment headquarters. It is unknown what was the focus of the visit but it could be related to the upcoming 20th anniversary of Diablo. I will remaind that David Brevik is the creator of Diablo and one of the founding members of Blizzard North, who in 2003 together with Bill Roper and Schaefer brothers have left Blizzard. There are also rumors abour new Diablo, but it is unlikely.
