These last few weeks have been rather busy for me, what with Final Exams and Christmas and all that, so I haven't really had much time to work on my Dungeons of Dredmor mod. But now that they're over, I'm happy to say that I now have plenty of time to play Saints Row The Third play Dissadia: Final Fantasy Duodecum 012  play Team Fortress 2  work on it.

So far I've managed to get the fist two skills done for the "Hipsterology" (Dave Strider's) skilltree: Flash Step and Unbelievably Ill Jams.

Flash Step is a simple teleportaion spell with no mana cost and a 15-turn cooldown. While this sounds like a potential game-breaker, using the spell significantly reduces your maximum spellpoints for a significant period of time. I'm still trying to figure out what the right cooldown and debuff times should be, but the concept appears to be sound.

Unbelievably Ill Jams (don't mind the typo) is a simple buff spell that increases your Melee power, dodge rate, Voltaic resistance, and overall nimbleness. The catch is that it reduces your trap sight radius to a an almost comical degree. Again, I'm still tweaking the numbers...

Now, as for the next skill... I'm a little stumped as to what it should be. It's going to be something along the lines of "You run a blog where you tell people they can be individuals by listening to all of your favorite music" or something like that, but I'm not exactly sure how that would translate into a game-play mechanic. After that skill I plan to have something involving either Lil' Cal or Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff, followed by a skill that reflects Dave's status as the Knight of Time.

Ah well, I've still got time to figure that out.


  1. Hi, I wanted to ask you if could you please explain how you got your mod to work ? What files you created and where you put them ?

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

  2. There's a bunch of stuff about this on the Gaslamp Games forums, but the gist of the matter is that you need to put your mods in the documents/Gaslamp Games/Dungeons of Dredmor/Mods folder.

  3. ...and I'm officially an idiot for not thinking about checking the Gaslamp Games forums (or rather not thinking that there might be one).

    That diggle war right all along, I'm terrible at this.

    Thank you for pointing that out to me, and good luck on your project.

  4. This SO needs completion! Come to the forums and talk to us mod folk if you want some help/inspiration, because this looks BADASS.
