The Nephilim are NEPHDMG brown creatures with tusks, armed with a spiked club, that are commonly encountered in the Tower. They are passive at first and do not attack of their own accord, potentially bound by the four pillars surrounding them. Initiating a fight, they will use melee attacks.

The name of these creatures is revealed to us by taking a closer look at the often descriptively titled textures, which we can extract with the help of the XWE Editor from the ROTH/M/ADEMO.DAS folder of our ROTH installation:

  • NEPH_C.Brown, tusks, weapon club with.BMP
  • NEPHILIM.:fields of...ha ha!.BMP

The latter description appears to be a humorous allusion to the British Gothic rock band Fields of Nephilim.

The Nephelim themselves, from Hebrew נְפִילִים (nephilim) "Giant", refer to the giant-like entities mentioned in the Book of Genesis 6:4

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.
