Elijah Houck and Justin Hardin, the creators of Ethas: Embrace of Destiny, an experienced duo. In 2009, Elijah started development on Alton, IL, a huge mod for Fallout 3, taking players to his hometown in a world over twice the size of Point Lookout. Elijah would continue work on Alton for almost three years, finally releasing the mod on October 27th, 2011. Alton was (and currently still is) the largest mod for Fallout 3, and won File of the Month on Fallout3Nexus for the month of October. It wasn't only Elijah that brought Alton to the masses, however. Justin Hardin was essential to the project, creating amazing trailer and in-game music and sounds, brilliant voiceovers, meshes, textures, and even finally getting the GECK to generate LOD meshes for Alton (which is usually unheard of for such a large world). Before Alton was finished, Elijah and Justin had begun drafting early concepts on what would later become Ethas, a mod even more ambitious than Alton.
