As a bibliophile or, if you want to put it more bro-tastically, bookworm, I’ve spent hours just reading the books in the Elder Scrolls games. And if you’re like me, I’m sure you’ll understand why I have never been more excited for a piece of Elder Scrolls merchandise than for this upcoming set, The Hero’s Guides to The Elder Scrolls Online.
The set contains three real-life books filled with Elder Scrolls illustrations and lore. Even if you don’t give a damn about the MMORPG, if you love the lore these would be gorgeous to have for a shelf.
The three books included are:
- Kyne’s Challenge: A Hunter’s Companion Hardcover bestiary bound in faux-leather, with full emboss/deboss and spot foil on cover and spine. 168 gold gilded pages with a ribbon marker and 156 original illustrations by Brynn Metheney, Roberto Gomes, and David Keen.
- Gathering Force: Arms and Armor of Tamriel Soft touch fighter’s guide with rounded spine, embossed cover, and silver foil on front and back cover. 56 deckled pages with a ribbon marker and 96 original illustrations by Caio Cacau.
- Agents and Reagents: The Bounty of Mundus Envelope-wrapped alchemical notebook with cord closure and embossed cover. 48 deckled pages with 47 original illustrations by Brynn Metheney.
The books are limited to an edition of 10,000 and cost $100. They can be pre-ordered here.
