It was actually a game-design issue, not an art issue.
In the original game design for War In The North, the three character classes(human, elf, dwarf) started in different areas. That ended up being a problem, so in the shipped game all the classes start in the same area. This image was to be the startroom for the human/male/mage.
ooooooh i see so really it was just a big mix up? well i am glad to be able to see the aftermath none the less! i was about to say "they dont like it! i will make them pay!" lol but since it wasnt an art issue i will keep them from being punted in the ass
