Duskruin: The Deepest Depths

Hushed whispers about a lost band of temple marauders have been making the rounds in the taverns of Bloodriven, while ominous rumblings have been heard echoing from deep beneath the Arena. Do you dare venture in to discover the source?

Rumor has it that more than treasure was unearthed during the last dig!

HESS additions

Six new add-script-to-existing options, including Dramatic Drapery will be available, as well as new unlimited resistance swapping, additional sides for Morphing Armor, and unlocks for Morphing Shields. And what's this? Exclusive, unlimited enchanting certificates up to 15x?

Main Post by Retser: Discord

  • Otherwise similar mechanically to Daybringer.

Eonak Arms by GM Netz

Customizable artificial limbs worn on the shoulder or belt to carry items, block attacks, and assist with general physical tasks, available at Eonak Arms, which makes sense.

Main Post by Netz: Discord

  • Each ability can be upgraded independently.
  • No shield needed for blocking, similar to (and compatible with?) Shield Capes.
  • Limbs only carry things, they can't use them and you won't benefit from enhancives being held by them.
  • OTS it can pick up 1lb. Top tier 25lbs.

Essence Belts by GMs Kenstrom and Mestys

From the creators of hand-held pylons and available at Essencetials, Essence Belts offer a variety of special abilities and magical benefits activated by elemental essences.
