Titan Quest - Alternate Hero Skins (AllSkins Mod)

Fantasy game art from Titan Quest.
An art book, The Art of Titan Quest, is also available.

This post showcases the AllSkins mod (now included in the unofficial fan patch). Normally, Titan Quest has only two hero models with no variation: Male and Female caucasian. The AllSkins mod is a free third-party mod that lets players choose from hundreds of fantasy "skins" for their character.


male character with no armor Here are two basic Titan Quest models in their "underwear" (when a character is wearing no armour). Incidentally, it took two years before someone managed a game modification to remove the skirt. female character with no armor
male character in armour and the Corpse skin Here are two characters modified with the AllSkins mod (now included in the unofficial fan patch). female character in armour and the Tattoo skin

The Bard's Tale - Ego Sword

Fantasy art from The Bard's Tale fantasy role playing game.

In this cutscene, the Bard first acquires the singing Ego Sword from the firbolg miners. It is an awesome weapon, but the actual singing (when the Bard wanted to conjure a companion) was somewhat boring "la la la la..." fitted to tune.

The Bard's Tale - Dun Ailinne Treasure Map

Fantasy art from The Bard's Tale fantasy role playing game.

This cutscene features dialogue from the Houton blacksmith concerning his treasure map. Although the Bard being scammed is entirely in keeping with the overall tone of the game world, the treasure map was in fact a good one, as Dun Ailinne hides, among other things, the Golden Spyglass, which increases all future treasure finds by 10%.

The Bard's Tale - Decluttering

Fantasy art from The Bard's Tale fantasy role playing game.

This is a cutscene where the game mocks other role-playing games for allowing players to wantonly search through the belongings of others and loot everything. It was a very common occurrence prior to the introduction of more detailed scripting in games to define ownership and enable theft detection.
