Deities Mod - Early Development
« on: 04 November 2017, 05:23:13 »
Hi, I started making this mod in the last days of titanquest.net, but when the site went down, I just couldn't continue. This forum gives me reason to resume working on it.

About the Mod

The core idea is to make a Mastery mod about greek gods, as close to the lore of greek mythology as it can be. There will be 9 new Masteries, each related to a major Olympian god, the only exception is Hecate, who is not an Olympian, but she is just too cool not to be included. The 9 gods are:

Apollo - god of the sun, music, prophecy, healing, archery and disease. He will be something like the old Dream mastery, but uses burn damage instead of electrical burn. His followers use healing skills, trances, songs, have burning auras and can spread sickness upon their enemies. Also can summon pet animals, related to Apollo.

Ares - god of war, rage, fear, bloodshed, and father of dragons (his sacred animals). The mastery will be very similar to old Warfare mastery, but uses alot of bleed dmg and small amount of burn, also many skills have chance to cause fear. Old skills are reworked or upgraded.

Artemis - similar to old Hunting mastery, but has more magical skills and does small portions of frostburn damage. New thing is the Moon tree. Bow and spear will use the same skills with slightly different bonuses, depending on the weapon you choose.

Athena - goddess of strategic aspect of war, courage, wisdom, crafts and protection. Closest to vanilla Defense mastery. Does small amounts of electrical burn.

Dionysus - god of the woods, celebrations, madness, ecstasy and wine. Closer to old Nature Mastery, but more offensive. Has satyrs and maenads for pets, causes drunkiness, madness, frenzy, regenereates fast, commands plants.

Hecate - goddess of the dead, sorcery and witchcraft, ruler of the dark aspect of the moon. She it not evil however, she brings light in the dark and unlock the hidden mysteries to her devotees, also wards them from the living dead. She is given power over earth, sea and sky, so she is a master of the elements.

Hephaestus - god of fire, blacksmithing, inventions, mechanics, volcanoes. Similar to old Earth Mastery, but uses many mechanical devices and can craft automatons.

Hermes - not started.

Poseidon - not started

Zeus - not started.

Overview of the Masteries:

Th above table is old, but it can give you a general idea.
I'll give more details about what the masteries will be like in the next posts. Many of the ideas are still unfinished, but i'll update them in time. New Poseidon mastery can be found on page 3.

actually i would like it more if Hades was one of the gods/masteries.. like necromancer from diablo.. Summon minions from the realm of the dead  .. yeah that's badass i think.. I'm not very active playing anymore but this could get me back

but it would be confusing because you'll also have to face Hades at the end

Yes, in the mod you draw power from the domains of the gods, and including Hades is like being a servant to your own enemy... but don't worry, there will be necromancy. It's one of the specialities of Hecate, among other things. I'll update the first post with a picture to show the main skill catergories and comparitions of the gods.

I'm working on Artemis mastery last few days. It's going slow, but there is some progress. Some skills are already different from the ones in the draft. this time i'll do the visual part for last. ArtManager 1.6 gives me error on start, so i can't convert any textures yet... i guess the gods want me to do the more important things first :)

that's cool.. if I'm not mistaken Hecate is also a resident of the underworld so it makes sense.. about Artemis, if you decide to include scatter shot please don't implement that 80% ¶˘€π bleed.. I'm about to post something about that in this forum.. titled archers without hunting.. pls look at it.. and whoever gods might be talking to you, just don't listen to Pan
