Shrine of the Dragon

This was originally being made for the DDC contest - the contest has died but I'm still planning on completing the D-Mod anyway.

Shrine of the Dragon is about a young girl who was taken in by the Dead Dragon Carcass at a young age and is now about to become a full member of the cult. Something happens to make her rethink her views though... maybe being a part of the DDC isn't so good after all.
Meanwhile, Dink has been sent by King Daniel to investigate reports of a group of DDC cultists in the area, and to deal with them if he finds them.

Both will be playable characters at different points in the game.

Screenshots coming

The guy with the cute D-Mod. 
Sounds good. Multiple playable characters is always enjoyable. Keep up the good work.

Agreed, looking foreward to some more sacrifices lol

Multiple playable characters means multiple story endings perhaps?

That's funny, I was also working on a DDC-mod and I was planning to have multiple player controlled characters too.

Anyway, it sounds good Sparrowhawk! I hope you finish it!

Aww no way I had the same plan. I did add some new things to it though so I doupt our D-Mods will look alike

Great minds think alike, as they say

By the way, the story is vaguely based on The Tombs of Atuan, by Ursula Leguin.

Excellent concept.

One of the most interesting d-mods advertised in a long time... I look forward to it's release. Though I'd perhaps be slightly more interested if the cultist was a power crazy psycho.

A little. Yes this is still actively being worked on and will be released, though I hesitate to give any sort of time frame

As soon as possible I hope.

I, er, haven't touched it in the past year.
It's definitely not abandoned though! I often think of it, it's just a little behind schedule... Hopefully I'll start work on it again soon.

Started two other small projects in the meantime, one of which will probably see the light of day.

I blame getting married, changing jobs (twice), moving home (possibly twice), and general laziness.

Erm... I backed it up and moved it to my new laptop ready to carry on working with it, does that count?

No, no real progress. It has been increasingly on my mind over the last few weeks though actually, so it may come back to life soon

That's pretty hard to do, krish. It would take quite a bit to finish and then to have someone beta test it. It'll be a while before it's released.

The dmod is not fake. Sparrowhawk just forgot about it is all. He'll start working on it again when another ddc contest comes up.

You have to say the whole name, Cindy!

Contests never allow already released files; they must always be new. Even stronger, they don't even allow modifications of released files. In every contest, it says as an example that Sharp cannot modify Milderrr and compete with it.

Well the thing is, most -if not all- contests on here have had some sort of prize, be it monetary or otherwise. However I personally don't really have anything worth giving away, nor do I feel like spending a crapton of money on postage to get a prize halfway around the world. That's the big issue for me. Otherwise I would gladly talk to a staff member about hosting some dmod creation contest. Coming up with a contest idea feels simple enough.

@Leprochaun, you could use your pot of gold, you cheap sob.

Couldn't someone summon Dan and have him use his saved porn and nutella money to make a contest?

Um, no. Sorry.

Still adamant it's going to be finished, just no time at the moment to work on it properly

Can't believe I started this in 2009 That's insane. Time flies...

The premise sounds really good. It involves some detective work maybe? More dead bodies as in The Savebot Massacre? *we wants blood.*

Yeah, time flies and life happens...

Anyway, I would like to play it when it is finished, if I am still around.
Good luck with it!

I wish. But... no.

But you have inspired me! There'll probably be a short-lived burst of creativity soon, resulting in a couple of hours work on an unrelated project that will then be shelved for a few more months

Adamant that this is not dead though.

I salute SlipDink's enthusiasm. This guy sure loves DMODS! Are there still many others interested in dmods these days? How may people still play them?

Also, what ever happened to Shevek? A lot of people that were around when I joined here seem to have vanished.
