Dungeon Mastery Mod Pack 1.8 isn’t designed for single player, so if that’s what you’re looking for, you’re not going to find it here. However, if you love D&D or other tabletop role-playing games, and want a similar experience, then you might be interested in Dungeon Mastery. Inspired by the mod of the same name, this pack is a loose compilation of mods that are primarily tools to help run a small role-play server.
The mission statement for this pack is fun over faff.
I’ve seen so many rpg style mods fall victim to the MMO-ification of the game, because they tried too hard to “balance” things or control the outcomes of events or whatever, so I’ve actively tried to avoid those kind of mods, in favor of mods that put story first and numbers second. The more imbalanced combat is, the more unexpected the players reactions to situations, and the weirder and more broken the game mechanics get, the more fun it is to try and explain it away with role-play, after all.
To that end, the Unique Artifacts mod adds a bunch of really fun wacky random items and armor pieces which do interesting junk, which I feel fits the theme of weird game-breaking mechanics. I also tried to add a few different mods that add items that allow you to play your character in a lot of different ways. You could create a character and play them as a thief for example, and pick the lock on a reinforced chest, or sneak around and rummage through other peoples backpacks whilst they aren’t looking, using Better Storage.
Alternatively you can play as a mage and cast an assortment of spells using Ars Magica 2, and delve into the mysteries of the arcane… or deck yourself out in platemail and bumrush your enemies with a battlaxe from Balkon’s Weapon mod, and get drunk in the tavern afterwards on a variety of delicious beverages added by Growthcraft… so really combat is only part of the pack, and a lesser part at that.
This pack, is all about the story.
With Lore Expansion and Custom NPCs, you have a lot of options for delivering the story to your players in fun ways, and with World Edit (and World Edit CUI) you have the tools to build fun settings and structures to explore, or GenCreator if you want to create your own world gen structures on the fly. As a player character you can have a broad array of appearances using More Player Models 2, combined with custom skins, you can pretty much look however you want. Faun? No problem. Naga? You bet. Drider? Sure thing. And hey there’s even in-game voice chat using Gilby’s Voice Chat, which allows you to talk to other players based on proximity, so you can even whisper to someone next to you without someone down the hallway hearing you.
