Inspiration and development
The systems of cracks near the edge of the map are designed to give the appearance of "hell lightning."
- The Hebrew term "Abaddon" (Hebrew: אֲבַדּוֹן, Avaddon, meaning "doom"), and its Greek equivalent "Apollyon" (Greek: Ἀπολλύων, Apollýōn) appear in the Bible as both a place of destruction and an archangel of the abyss. In the Hebrew Bible, abaddon is used with reference to a bottomless pit, often appearing alongside the place שְׁאוֹל (Sheol), meaning the realm of the dead.
