Ethas: Embrace of Destiny is a modification for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim being developed by Justin Hardin and Elijah Houck, the team that brought you the mod Alton, Il. for Fallout 3. In Embrace of Destiny, you will explore the lands of Arelia and Virardan, two countries currently at war with each other. Your role starts you out as one of the five famous Captains of the Arelian Army. Choices will be made, and sides will be chosen. There is only one question that remains: will you become the hero or the villain?

Nice- the fog is a bit yellow though- I think it might look better with a less saturated violet or pink.

Some sunrises are a pinkish color, the Plains has a nice pink sunrise. I'm keeping this one yellow, however, as it's inspired by this beauty, which was the first piece of reference art we found when thinking up Ethas:

Even then, the light is more orange/pink. It's just my 2 cents- this is still a very high quality environment. I like the art style+placements a lot

Thanks! It's actually a bit more on the orange side of things in the wee hours of the morning (7:30) versus when the shot was taken (8:30), which was right as the sun was hitting the peaks of the Western Reach.

Anyway, something like this is purely subjective, so to each his own. :)

I'm so happy to see this pic! I spot a few of my model resources there, damn it feels like I see my children (models) getting grown up and living their own lives now (being in other mods)

*parently tears* :P

The city of Valeria, one of the major port cities in the world of Ethas, was built on a small group of islands in the idyllic Valer Bay.
