  • Isn't this plagiarism?!?

    Seems to me the content of the massively popular (and admittedly great!) video game "The Witcher" is a MAJOR rip-off of the Elric series. An albino swordsman/sorcerer with the nickname "White Wolf", who requires potions to sustain his strength, etc....

    Adapted from Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski's series.... Hmm....

    This has already been discussed at length in this thread. I really don't see the need to re-hash the issue again. Thanks.
    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

      To summarise: while there are some similarities, it is not plagiarism.
