Trivia

Forge Town

During the development phase of Armageddon's Blade, 3DO unveiled a ninth town - the Forge Town, which was to bring high technology and a futuristic setting to the game. However, the fans panned this move due to the "distastefulness" of the town (especially some concepts, like the bare-breasted Naga Tank). 3DO employees also received death threats via mail, so they scrapped the Forge Town in favour of the Conflux.
