WHAT IS THIS MOD?
=========================================      
               
This is the first in a series of planned shipments from The Leviathan Armory & Emporium, now menacing with spikes of revisions! Shipment One
contains a variety of weapons, armor, shields, reactions, tweaks, "fixes," and other odds and ends. I will be building on this project with
additional shipments coming in the future. To see what's going on with the mod and any upcoming content, make suggestions, or get involved with
the project, please check out the Bay 12 Forums thread: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=177136.0 - Any constructive feedback is
always appreciated, I hope to improve and keep generating new content for the community.

The weapons and armor have not received extensive testing, however, I have based their tokens on several well known weapons and armor packs,
and have used the stock object raws as a baseline. While intended for use by the dwarven race, there is no reason why they can't be utilized
elsewhere. Unfortunately that is beyond the scope of The Leviathan Armory & Emporium at this current time. If there are any oddities in their
behavior or performance, as well as any changes, improvements, tweaks, or suggestions you may have, please get at me on the Bay 12 Forums, or
on Discord.

Thanks for the downloads and views guys! I honestly expected this to kind of just sit around and get buried under the storm of amazing content from all of the other talented modders and content creators out there. I started this mod in an effort to correct a few things that kind of irked me in terms of gameplay, and before long i had a "to-do" list sitting on my desktop, just full of ideas. I'm in the process of testing the weapons right now, which is a learning process in itself as I have never used the testing arena so if anyone could steer me in the right direction, that would be awesome!

To those of you who have downloaded, please feel free to get at me about the modpack! I welcome constructive criticism and feedback, as I hope to improve my skills in terms of modding, and continue to generate some cool content.

In terms of what I've got in the pipeline, I'm looking at Maple Syrup, some more armor to compliment the variety of weapons, as well as a few more ranged options and ammo types. I'm also looking at a few throwing weapon variants, some new creatures.... heck you know what? I'll just post my notes;

Shipment Two - Potential New Content - Design Document

Hey everyone, thanks for the support, all the help, and the downloads. I've done a complete overhaul of the readme, and the mod itself, and I've also edited the "Design Document" above to be a kind of running list of things to do for the future. Crazy to think how many people have checked this out so far!

Shipment One is now considered complete, complete with a few revisions and additions, and I can begin working on the next Shipment!

So! What do you guys want to see more of? Less of? Any cool ideas you'd like to see maybe come to life? What's your favorite part of Shipment One? Is there anything on the design document that you'd like to see fast-tracked into the next shipment? Feedback and input are always appreciated. I've had an absolute blast so far and I'm super exited for the next Shipment, even though it has yet to take shape. Please keep an eye on this thread, and don't hesitate to get involved with modding! It's easier than you guys think. ;)

Thanks again guys, and I hope you're all having a blast with the mod.

Cheers from Canada,
