Hi fellow Skyrim fans
I’m Nicolas, one of the developers of the 2016 Skyrim Total Conversion Enderal and it's 2019 DLC Enderal – Forgotten Stories. I worked on Enderal between 2011 – 2019 and am the guy behind most of the plotting, the dialogue, the voice acting direction, a lot of scripting work, 3d art, and much, much more. I’m also a professional game writer at Grimlore Games (THQNordic).
In short, after approximately 3300 hours of writing, twelve full rewrites, and a messy launch due to COVID and my printing company, my debut novel Dreams of the Dying is now finally available and on sale for a special launch price.
Described by reviewers as "Inception in a Polynesian-inspired fantasy setting," Dreams explores the past of Jespar Dal’Varek, one of Enderal’s main characters; winding up in a bizarre mission to enter a dying merchant king's nightmares, he is forced to confront his own repressed trauma. It's a dark but gripping story that pulls no punches and merges elements of fantasy, mystery, and psychological horror. Even though Dreams is technically a prequel to the game, it stands on its own.
If you enjoyed Enderal and think this might be for you, feel free to check out my website, which has all the information you need. Just like Enderal, this is a full indie project. Lastly, to any Enderal fan in this Reddit, thanks for your continuous support and the love you showed for our project. Yes, it sounds cheesy, but you kept me going whenever I felt like burning this thing.
A few reviews:
"A sense of pure evil suffuses Lietzau's utterly complex high fantasy universe, which is almost as complex and immersive as that of Tolkien. His acute analyses of mental illness, self-doubt, and guilt combined with the subtlety and nuance of his evocative storytelling make it a treat for readers weary of formulaic dark fantasy. This novel deserves a wide audience." – ThePrairiesBookReview
"Dreams of the Dying is a dark and wonderful epic fantasy that draws you in from the very first page.” – San Francisco Book Review
“Masterful storytelling. Worldbuilding with worlds inside of worlds. It's a must-read and should be considered a classic in the making.” – Amanda Castro, Bookstagrammer
"This book has a mix of humor, amazing details, and descriptions of this world, while also dealing with some serious moral issues that can be hard to read about but, still, enlightening. (…) I am absolutely fascinated by this world after reading this. It's haunting, it's beautiful … I don't know what else to say. Amazing.” – Jesse Ruth, Bookstagrammer
"Dreams of the Dying is at once a very dark but also incredibly beautiful, hopeful, intelligent, and highly ambitious debut novel that pushes the limits of what fantasy can be and serves as a testament to everything that I love about this genre. It’s damn near criminal that Nicolas Lietzau isn’t being talked about as one of the rising stars of sff." – Goodreads Review
