You feed the madness, and it feeds on you. 
Ok, so let's get on with it:
You play as Dink, in the town of Dalloway.
Shortly after arriving in Dalloway, you find out that people have been disappearing from the village. This causes panic amongst the townspeople and they start to fear that they are all in danger, so the King of Dalloway asks Dink to investigate the disappearances and if he can restore peace to Dalloway, he will be greatly rewarded. However, Dink is yet to find out that these disappearances are nothing compared to what is really going on....

Will include:
-Some new scripting ideas that haven't been done before.
-Some new graphics, most of which are not animated, as I suck at making new graphics.
-New spells
-Lots of side quests that the player can find. Completion of certain side quests can change later quests in the game.

Also, some parts include stealth, kind of like in Redink1's Dmod initiation, except I wanted to improve on it, and I have.
I had to re-script the whole thing to get it working the way I wanted, it now includes more stuff:
-You now have to 'creep' past guards when walking near them, or they can hear you.
-It is possible to distract guards, by creating a decoy, example - making noise at another place to make them run over there.
-If you can creep up behind a guard without being seen, you can kill them instantly by hitting them in the back with a sharp, handheld weapon.

Release date is still unknown, as I work on it on and off.
Sometimes I go a few weeks without even touching it.

Other random information that may interest you:
Size: Epic
Number of (working) scripts so far: 616

Screenshots so far
Some may say that too many screenshots ruin the Dmod. That is true in most cases, however I am not posting any screenshots that give away the 'main' storyline, and I am not showing the best screens. Also, most of the screens I show are not complete. The screens you see below will almost always end up different to the way you see them at the time they are posted, as I will usually add to them or change them.
I deleted some screenshots because they are no longer correct, they have either been changed a lot, or deleted and remade.

415 scripts already? Nice. And I'll tell you why people like your rap. It's actually a simple mathematical formula.

Rap = Bad
Dink = Good
Parodies = Good

The Bad cancels out the Good, making it a neutral. Then adding the other good, it becomes good!

Your DMOD sounds really good, Rob. Keep it up and you can have a cookie I've been saving in a drawer for 3 years. It's chocolate chip. Well, it was.

I suppose I better post an update on this.

I haven't been working on this much, and when I have worked on it, I've mainly just been adding detail to the screens and fixing some buggy scripts. Every screen is very detailed now. I did make a little more of the story, but not much.
Still don't know the release date, but I'm still working on it and it will be finished.

Update for those who care:

Made some progress, and yes 'some' progress is definitely worth an update for this, since I don't work on it much anymore, mainly because I don't have time, as I have other things to do. I also have to make my LP's for Dink, to keep the people that like those happy, which take up some of the time I probably used to spend Dmodding, but anyway, some progress is better than none right? ... yep, now to the point:

- 7 more map screens completed (9 if you count the 2 incomplete, dull, pieces of crap screens that suck ass, which need more work).
- Now have 421 working scripts, which is a nice update from 415 (also edited first post to say this)
- 1 New spell
- 1 new side quest
- 2 new (not animated) graphics
- 1 new animated graphic
- 1 riddle added into a certain side quest area (designed to rot out your brain and have you screaming like a psychotic pillbug that is totally off it's face)
- Modifcations to intro and storyline, to make them much more interesting and hopefully boredom-free (unless your a n00b, in which case you can suck on the balls of a Peking duck)

UPDATE

Fixed a whole heap of bugs in the parts I've made so far.
New area added.
Made my own night effect, for the reason that the old one wasn't applied to all the tiles, and wasn't applied to any sprites, which isn't very useful in my opinion. I made my own, so I can apply it to all tiles, and all sprites. I applied this effect to every single Dink graphic and tile - so even Dink looks night-ish. I don't know whether I should upload these night graphics though, I'll let you decide.
Note: This whole Dmod isn't set at night, I use the 'load_tile' and 'load_sequence_now' functions in order to load the full set of day or night tiles when needed. It works awesomely.
Also, I made it different, my version has more of a blue-ish tinge to it. I like it that way, fits the atmosphere of my Dmod better too.
If people like it, I'll upload my full set of night tiles and sprites.

Screenshots
Night-time 1
Night-time 2

Hours of gameplay so far(with me playing it, so I know exactly where to go): 3 hours

This Dmod is still no where near complete though.

Also, I was creating some new graphics in 3DSmax, and they were almost done, but I lost motivation after I lost the files. I found an older save of them, but they are really old saves and they are no where near completed, so I don't know whether these new graphics will make it into the Dmod - depends if I can be bothered remaking them.

So yeh, this Dmod is still being made, and will be released eventually.

I'd really appreciate you releasing those night graphics, would help me enormously That's the one thing I miss when using 32 bit color, the pallette swaps. And I'm not really experienced enough with graphics software to achieve the same results you did, plus I'm color blind which is also obstructive

Update
This Dmod is still going strong.
List of recent progress:
- fixed a few bugs that I found. A few meaning 5 or 6 in this case.
- tweaked a few scripts to make them run better, and with less variables being used in a few of them.
- updated one of my new spells to give it a few other 'abilities', I guess you could call them.
- made some changes to the dialogue I have written so far, to make it more believable/compelling.
- added 24 new screens, when I say new screens, I mean detailed and complete btw... so yeh, there's 28 new screens if you count the incomplete ones, which still need a lot of attention to detail.
- 1 new side quest, which, if found and completed, reaps quite a convenient reward...

Playtime - with completion of all side quests - and with me playing through (knowing exactly where to go), is now almost 4 hours.

Just letting people know, this is still going... it's going slowly... but it's still going... I'm just in the midst of redoing some of the previous dialogue, as it was originally made very rough, with the intention of going back to it later once some other areas had been made....
At this point I have also used up over half of the 768 maximum map tiles available.
It's definitely going to be an epic, as it qualifies for one already, and it isn't complete yet...

Progress Update

- 21 new scripts, bringing the total scripts to 467
- I have used roughly 3 quarters of the 768 maxiimum map tiles available - only about 6 of those screens are incomplete at the moment.

I have to modify the way I am using my night sprites.. for some reason the loading of some sprites on the fly, was screwing with the hardness of some other sprites when they were loaded back in... it was quite weird, but since there is only a few night parts in this Dmod, I have found another way to do it, so it's all good now. I've just gotta retest it and tweak a few scripts to get it working properly again.

Demo's are like a cancerous virus. They fall upon the Mod with no warning. It brings a veil of laziness and the munchies over the editor. They feel there job is done and visit there mod less and less in some cases it has even driven there creators insane so they took up moderating the website. The demand for the D-Mod dies down and it makes you wonder did the D-Mod ever really stand a chance in the "real" files anyhow?

I have recently started working on this again.
Fixed lots of bugs in the parts I've already made and added a lot of extra detail.
This Dmod is coming along nicely, if I do say so myself. I decided to remove a couple of the new graphics, simply because I decided they didn't fit, and I prefer them not to be there at all, than to look unrealistic compared to the rest of the graphics. When I say a couple, I say it literally... there a still new graphics in the Dmod, I was just unhappy with these two I removed. I might remake them, but they aren't that essential.

Other than that. I just finished creating a cool new boss... which I have been going backwards and forwards trying to fix for a few months.. and now he's just about fully working, which is a big motivator to keep working on it. This was one of those scripts that crush all motivation to continue, and now that it's done, it's flipped around and I'm gonna work on it a lot more.

Added another side quest... also added a quest log, because it could get quite confusing for the player otherwise.

I've made a HEAP of progress on this Dmod in the last two weeks. Thanks to Kyle for the massive motivation boost he gave me over Skype recently.

It's still got a long way before it's released, but I've gone through what I've created so far and thoroughly checked it over for bugs, and fixed them all. I think there was a total of around 30 bugs that I found and fixed.

Also got a new enemy sprite in the works that I'm adding into the Dmod, all credit in regards to creation of it goes to Iplaydink, since he's putting it together for me.

As a side note, I might be looking for early beta testers soon, and when I say early.. I mean the game is no where near complete yet, but since it's going to be such a big dmod, I want a couple of early beta testers to find any bugs I may have missed so far, rather than leaving it until the end and then finding out the dmod needs to be postponed for ages to allow for bug fixing.
If you volunteer for this you should already know that this process may destroy the fun of playing the full Dmod when it's finally released.. but if you don't mind, then please volunteer! (Like I said: I only need one or two at this stage.)
February 17th 2013, 10:54 AM

This DMOD looks like it has a ton of potential, and I'm glad to know you are still working on it.

I haven't completely decided yet, but I'd say there is a very high chance I will volunteer to beta test. I don't think seeing the first part of the game will ruin the final release for me, but if it is as good as it sounds, there is a chance it may make waiting for it a bit harder.

Just be sure to leave a post when you are ready for testing, and I'll let you know.

Also, I'm very impressed with the number of scripts you have going already. I've basically considered my (epic) DMOD about 50% complete, and I only have 216 scripts with 316kb of content (granted, I haven't scripted all the little things Dink can punch and examine just yet). so 500+ is definitely an achievement. The amount of scripts you have now is probably somewhere around how much mine will have when it's finished.

Agreed. HH2 probably has around 500 necessary scripts. And the number jumped to 750+ after I added all the detail scripting.

Sorry Rob. I'm gonna sit this one out. As much as I'd love to early-test it (not just out of excitement, but as a repay for you testing my D-Mods), I just don't have enough time in my hands. Sorry.

I'm trying not to.

My guess is 500-600, and less than a megabyte, since the fluff scripts will not be very big. But I guess I'll see how that turns out.

Edit: And yeah, HH2 is quite the script giant. 993 kb with 772 scripts is a lot! Although, I think some of the scripts could have been combined to lower the count (mostly the magerock scripts come to mind, seeing as there are fifteen of them but I'm not sure why). I'm combining scripts as much as I can without making code hard to read, like changing text depending on which screen a character is on instead of using a new script for a new screen. It's certainly not important though, just something I like to do because it's easier for me.

My D-mod doesn't currently have a screen 143...but there will be someday, and there will definitely be a tree.

New running gag for all upcoming D-mods?

Edit: For me, screen 143 will eventually exist in the desert area of my D-mod, probably very close to the major town of the area. So for now, it's a desert tiled screen with a random tree on it.

Awesome to see a tree and the screen #143 can inspire such creative tree use in everyone's dmod... I now expect everyone mods to be finished by Christmas with this amazing amount of treefully awesome motivation I have given you all.

If not I will murder Santa Claus and eat his reindeer. I will then regurgitate them and bury them under the tree on screen 143.

In other words:

Merry Christmas?

UPDATE:

ExDeathEvn's extensive update of his Dmod inspired me to update TDA. I opened it, scrolled through the map, found his in-game representation of him which was in a secret area, and replaced his character with an old man. I then ate a sandwitch, closed the dmod and thought maybe I should have put some more motivation into that sandwitch, I mean seriously, it tasted like procrastination.

Alright, so..
- I've gone back and expanded A LOT of what was already made, added a lot more stuff.

- Made things more entertaining, and made sure any 'fetch quests' I previously made no longer felt boring, and also had more purpose to them.

- Modified a shizload of dialogue to make it more 'realistic' I guess you could say.

- Redesigned the quest log to make it more awesome.

- Added a new area.

- Added unlockable alternate hero quests of characters from the main story, which are playable form the title screen after unlocked, to further expand on the story.

- Ate some doritos and placed another screen-changing tree, with one blade of grass to totally blow some ducking minds.

It is with great regret that I may have to delete the tree on screen #143 after some recent updates to the mapping. I feel it doesn't fit anymore...

I am in the process of rewriting/editing a lot of the dialogue in this Dmod too, to make it more interesting and engaging. It could take a bit... there is a lot of dialogue. I tend to rush dialogue and come back to it later with all my dmods I make, in an attempt to continue with the storyline and design plan that I have.

Have done a lot of mapping and a lot more scripting too.

Total number of scripts is almost 700.

why wood you remove the tree dude!? Just leaf it where it is robbie!

you used to be a real tree hugger man.
im not normally one to get all sappy,
but you should really just get back to your roots.

if not you could try branching out and adding even MORE trees...

or maybe youre just all bark and no bite, making empty threats?

ok look, on my count youre gonna put it back ok?

All you have to do is scale a tree down in size and stick it in a plant pot, make it a sappling in the middle of the screen or something? Just sayin'.

Even people who had never heard of Dink were signing the petition, likely due to threats by "No more Treeson", a new and extremely dangerous terrorist group that has been threatening to grow trees in peoples houses if they don't comply with their petition."

Over the last 3 days I have put over 20 hours of work into developing this Dmod.

Half of that was me going back over all my scripts I've already written, cleaning them up, commenting them (I have a bad habit of never commenting my scripts, and they end up a mess), and fixing every possible bug/glitch I could find. I did full debug test, found a total of 42 bugs and fixed them all. I also rewrote some scripts to make them more efficient and to use less variables and stuff.

Now I can move onto making the final part of the game, which still has a bit of work, but the good news is that now the majority of bug fixing is done, so that's a lot less I have to do when the dmod is finally finished.

I will still need beta testers though, but not yet, I will say when I'm ready. Preferably the same people that tested this previously, if possible.

Glad to hear it's coming along, Rob.

I'd be surprised if not at least another year. This D-Mod, from what I saw already years ago, has probably the most polished/innovative scripting I've seen any D-Mod do. Seriously, you have to go to the Pilgrim's Quest and Initiation levels of crazy scripting tricks if you wanna have a chance to even be considered in the same category as this D-Mod.

I have always assumed Avilan was some alternate spelling of the famous island of Arthurian legend, Avalon. But, I have no reason to truly be certain of this.

Remade the title screen today, cause I got bored of mapping and scripting. It's very similar to before, but I think it looks slightly more awesome this way and fits more with the Dmod itself ( you'll see what I mean by that when you play it, although this might give away a hint about what "The Dark Avilan" is... many people have asked. )

I disagree. 
Well, I suppose it is a good time now to start a guessing game of what the heck dark avilan is.

My guess number one:
avilan is the anagram for anvil, but an extra 'a' slipped into the word.

My guess number two:
The dark villain couldn't quite fit the title screen, so you rewrote villain to avilan to solve the problem, and add a little mystery to the title of the dmod itself.

My guess number tree (143):
If you read it backwards, it says naliva, which is similar to saliva... Yuck!

Edit:
For the sake of that tree, please include herbies booties at some early stage of the game
