Seems most of the dark stuff in WoW is inspired by lovecraft which was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe. Myes... you can make the list of things inspired by even more things eternally long.Can't blame blizzard for using his work :DD

@mofasa As a side note Stephen King's book "It" was heavily influenced by H.P. Lovecraft. Also "It" was referenced In the Brann Bronzebeard dialogue in HoS. One of the members of the tribunal of ages say "Abedneum yells: Accessing. In the early stages of its development cycle Azeroth suffered infection by parasitic, necrophotic symbiotes." Now obviously these "symbiotes" were the Old Gods. The word necrophotic though strikes some interest, it translates directly to "Death-light" which is how "It" is described throughout most of Mr. King's novel... this is why I love Blizzard.

And yet somehow, it all comes back to Kevin Bacon.
