4e D&D Class Influenced By Serverian

Thanks to Paul for noticing and blogging this forum thread.  Looks like the Avenger class in the 4th edition of Dungeons & Dragons was inspired by the main character Severian from the Book of the New Sun.

Avenger: Ripping aside the ethereal nature of Wolf's Book of the New Sun and treating it as a comic book of sorts, Severian the torturer was a major influence on this class's initial feel and direction. Obviously its divine roots steered in a different direction, but I can easily see playing an avenger based on fantasy's most famous torturer.
