The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is an action-adventure game developed and published by Bethesda Softworks with a third person style reminiscent of the Tomb Raider games, set in the world of The Elder Scrolls.
The game takes place in Tamriel in the year 864 of the Second Era, some 400 years prior to the events of Arena and the rest of the series. The story is about Cyrus, a young Redguard, who arrives on the island of Stros M'kai in order to find his missing sister, and subsequently finds himself in the middle of political intrigue.
Redguard runs in MS-DOS and features a software mode as well as a 3D accelerated mode for computers with a Voodoo2 graphics card. The game's manual also included a section called the Pocket Guide to the Empire (often abbreviated as PGE, or PGttE), in which details were given on all the provinces of the Empire during that Era. This guide is written from the point of view of an Imperial, and has several handwritten notices in it written by an anti-imperial. Lastly, in some distributions of the game, the map that was provided in the box was partially burnt to provide an additional level of authenticity.
Early copies of Redguard also shipped with a comic book depicting the events that led up to Cyrus' adventure on Stros M'kai.
- Redguard was released in 1998, between Elder Scrolls games, Daggerfall and Morrowind and spin-offs, Battlespire and Stormhold.
- One of the only known members of the Sload race, N'Gasta, appeared in this game.
