Recently I went on a bit of a rant over at my blog (http://my.ddo.com/jroyal/2009/09/30/floating-ideas/) while I was bored at work. The idea seemed strange at first but I slowly became convinced that this mind child needed some more exposure, maybe it could even happen. So here I am to plead my case.

I want to have some ability to DM in game! Not from in game that seems like it would complicate things severely. I want to be able to grab a down-loadable mod creator and create my dungeon twists and turns where I want them, the monsters I want where I want them, the audio I want, I really want to be able to create my own voice-overs for the DM!! I say this because this game has such a great community I've seen even crummy game communities take the ability to do things like this and take it to insane new levels. I'm sure we could do that here. Yeah I'm new but this is D&D folks, some of the most creative people in the world pool their collective creative brains here!!! That insane to me. In the post I also detailed how quests to these user submitted dungeons could be semi-generic and come from one set up quest giver who simply informs characters of his ability to set mercenaries up with the people who need them. I think this would be especially fun I could imagine seeing people LFG for my ouw dungeon I made! How awesome would you feel? Take your friends through the dungeon and just check their reactions! All the stuff that matters like loot and XP would be easy (it seems) to control so we don't get any major boost maps. Then we could even have monthly votes to select the best dungeon map submitted that month. So many ideas come to mind... I assume other people should have things to say here.. If not maybe I'm wrong.. Let the higher ups know folks I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want this!

The idea of player made quests and dungeons has been kicked around since DDO Beta. The Devs have said at SOME point they may have that as an option, but last i heard, it was FAR FAR off. It probably all depends on how well EU works out in the cash flow area.

Here's to dreamin. I would love this myself... I would even PAY for a new client to do it.

i support this idea.

but you would need a good way to prevent the engine code from being stolen and a bunch of 3rd party DDO servers pop up.

heck, i would even support a seasonal community competition, users submit dungeon layouts, the winner gets $100 in turbine points and credit for the map when it is released. with or without the full software, this competition is possible.
