The official Bethesda Blog reports the staff at Bethesda Softwork were wowed by Dune, a new Oblivion mod project started by Stefano Tonello (aka Prometheus). This mod is not related to Frank Herbert's Dune universe. It's a completely new and unique storyline. Here's a brief introduction to the world of Dune:
"The DUNE World, known as Dusaar, is a huge desert world where the brutality of people and nature is an everyday part of life. Water has long since ceased to flow on the surface and can only be found in the last sea, some oases, and tiny lakes and streams are the only source of life for the Ancient Forest, a Tropical Jungle surrounded by Canyons and covered from the everpresent winds of the open Desert, protecting this small Last Paradise.
The desert covers the majority of the land, almost 90% of it is surrounded by the Great Wall Cliffs of the east and the Sea of Silt to the west. Some of the mountains are nearly impassable, but ancient canyons throughout them hide the last spots where life can still continue….There are many diverse cultures living in the few safe places on this world."
