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?

The final week of our 2012 Winter Update, with 6 new screens, a new podcast, new music, and trailer announcement.

Posted by jhardingame on Jan 4th, 2013

And here we are at the final week of our 2012 Winter Update!

Along the new screens we've released so far for our Winter Update, we have 6 new screenshots today for you all. The 6 new screens feature the following;

-The Great Valley
-The town of Hearthlake
-Combat featuring the Ethisian Steel Warhammer
-A Dwarven Ruin in the Wasteland
-Elven Ruin Interior
-The City of Rilekarth

Along side the new screens, we have our 2nd podcast! We go a bit deeper into the world of Ethas, talking about our companions, locations, and story. We also announce the date for our first trailer, so keep an eye out for that.

And finally, we have new music. This ambient track, titled "Reachwind", is named for the Reachwind Pass in Ethas, which connects the Great Valley of Virardan, and the Plains of Sorrow in Arelia. The piece combines the majestic views of the Great Valley with the solemn undertones of the war-torn Plains of Sorrow.

On February 7th, the one year anniversary of the Creation Kit, we'll be releasing our first trailer. We can't wait to show you the first in-game footage of Ethas, and are pretty excited for it. Make sure you keep an eye out for the trailer!

We hope you enjoyed the 2012 Winter Update, and as always, look back for more information in the future!
