Due to the new layout, as well as other changes, I've lost my motivation/passion for Wiki editing. That aside, I made a poll on Reddit a while ago, and thought I should share the results here, because I ain't got anything better to do, so why not?
Anyway, out of 93 people that voted in the poll, 63 (myself included) view Reize and Baz as original characters native to Shovel Knight and were merely based on outside sources, while only 30 people view them as foreign characters that came from other sources and don't actually belong in/to Shovel Knight. So.... Yeah. I'm probably gonna disappear from Wikia for another long while now.
P.S. I'm much more active on Twitter and Reddit (linked in profile) if anyone cares. Unlikely, but it's kind of a nice thought.
