| Out of Character (OOC)|
This entry is written in an Out of Character (OOC) perspective. It references real-life concepts and persons, or it reveals information that cannot possibly be known by an inhabitant of Ermarian. To maintain an authentic atmosphere of the Encyclopedia as a work compiled by loremasters within Ermarian itself, entries like these should be kept to a minimum.
The name Ermarian was given to the world of the Exile and Avernum series by players of the games and designers of BoE/BoA scenarios.
