The Draug is one of the most dangerous opponents in the entire game. The monster’s huge form towers over the lesser wraiths. Its body is made up of remains from the battlefield – remnants of shattered siege engines, broken spears, swords, torn leather belts, bent armor plates, barding and shields. Crackling flames and a crest of smoke crown its shapeless head. The Draug is the battlefield’s master, and it exists only to fight and kill.
These illustrations feature various phases of work on the Draug’s final appearance. Before the final version was selected, many concepts were entertained, especially concerning its head. These included huge fancy steel helms adorned with shattered horns, a wrought mask, a fantastical creature’s skull, a brass bell hovering above it, and even a completely headless shape, where the head is replaced by a crooked beam with a huge carrion bird sitting on it.
