The Gatekeeper of Hades

Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo

For centuries, the gate separating the human world and the underworld has been protected by a single family of dark mages, giving up their lifetimes to prevent the demons, spirits and other nastiest of nasties from invading earth – and on the rare occasion – taking out humans who get a little too curious.

Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo is an off-shoot of the Take That (In-Game) Snap article series, in which the first article focusing on Final Fantasy XIV was recently published.

With this Daily Photo spin-off series, I will be sharing individual photos from the games either covered or soon-to-be-covered in the series.
