Falinesti  - Close up on Tree Base by zebotc

Falinestri Prince

Six months ago we were just two people and a lore document with a dream but now after a lot of hard work and recruitment we have become a team of 65 and have started creating a mod that brings to life the world of Valenwood in The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim and are now ready to show the world just what we have been up to.

We have been working hard to write, draw and model the unique forests, creatures and locations of Valenwood to create a whole new expansion for Skyrim taking you to the southwestern corner of mainland Tamriel where you will be able to engage with the local population and the Thalmor. Below is a gallery with some of the pieces we have been working on.

These include biome concept art for parts of northern Valenwood, some of the flora and fauna we are working on and the weapons and armour used by the Bosmer. We also have some 3D work underway to create these amazing pieces.

One of the major locations the player will be able to visit is the ancient city of Falinesti home of the Camoran dynasty. This sprawling tree city will be a huge undetaking for us but hopefully from the concept art you can see what we hope to bring to life. Speaking of the Camorans you will meet many on your travels including helping with the succession crisis that has engulfed Valenwood with the death of King Elebor latest monarch of the line of King Eplear. He was installed with Thalmor backing in 4E 29 which brought Valenwood into the Third Aldmeri Dominion. With Valenwood split on who will take the throne, the fate of the Bosmer falls to his children. Olalorn his eldest raised in Alinor to be a king of the Aldmeri Dominion and favourite of the city folk or Casdra his daughter named as his heir on the king's deathbed and favourite of the tribes people.
