Bethesda has partnered with Dark Horse Comics to release The Hero’s Guides to The Elder Scrolls Online.
The Hero’s Guide is available exclusively from the Bethesda Store for $100 and is limited to 10,000 copies. It contains 272 pages of original writing and illustrations, spread across three books, and a miniature lithograph in a numbered portfolio. This is just a guide and does not contain a copy of the game.
“This set consists of tomes from across Tamriel during the Second Era. Each book presents different facets of the world: A trek across the provinces by a group of Nord hunters in honor of the Sky Goddess Kyne; an Imperial catalog of weapons and armor used by the great races; and the journal of a wizard’s apprentice, focusing on alchemical studies,” Bethesda explains. “These books were all brought together for you to experience stories from the realm as you make your own explorations across the Starry Heart.”
The three books that make up the guide 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 Hero’s Guide is set to ship April 14. You can pre-order your copy here.
