Fitting the current time of the year, we'd like to show you a new screenshot of Enderal's north - The Northwind-mountains. Secondly, we have decided to release the first chapter of an ingame-book called "The Butcher of Ark". It's the autobiography of a notorious serial killer, who died half a century before the happenings of Enderals story - It will introduce you to the lore of Enderal and give you a sense of the overall feeling of Enderals themes. Attentive readers might also spot some interesting connections to the mainquest! Hopefully it will be a good read for everyone enjoying dark, mature fantasy.
Finally, we'd like to tackle a topic which has been on our mind lately. A lot of users have suggested for us to use ENBs in our screenshots. However, we won't and never will. There are three reasons for this: First of all, it would falsify the end product. People whose machines aren't strong enough for the ENB would simply get something looking entirely different (and probably a lot worse). We want Enderal to look awesome on every machine, even on weak machines. Secondly, most ENB-programmers do not allow modders to include their ENB in the download. It would overcomplicate the installation progess. And finally, we consider it to be an easy solution to getting impressive results. Someone once said that a designers true skill shows when making something look great and immersive, even without dozens of graphical enhancements. We want our work to be genuine, and we want it to amaze you due to the hard labor and - at the risk of sounding cheesy - passion we put into it. Of course, people are free to use whatever ENB they like and installing it themselves, thus enhancing their experience even more - We simply don't want to make it obligatory.
That being sad, we hope you enjoy these new insights into the world of Enderal! :)
