Deaf Knight

Dredmor won't hear you coming, because you already blew his eardrums out seven floors ago.

Adds the Deaf Knight skill tree to the game. Become a Knight of the Order of Heavy Metal, and bring forth loud music to the dungeon! Mechanically, it's a warrior skill tree with a number of abilities which last for about as long as their duration - that is, you can juggle the buffs and forgo your own actions to keep them up, or just let them slide off. Also, be aware that there are MASSIVE penalties to sneak. Should be self-explanatory as to why.

REQUIRES REALM OF THE DIGGLE GODS. There's no way I'm not leaving "Denim Jacket" as the starter equipment. I would have gone with the axetar, but that's just a little way-too-overpowered. I might be convinced to make a "practice" version of an axetar, though...

As always, feedback is welcome.

Gain a bonus to haywire and critical hit chance, as well as a bonus to sight, for 12 rounds.

Gain a large list of defensive bonuses, but your sight and trapsight are stripped to a point where blindness is the only fair thing to call it.

Heavy Riffin':
A very short-lived buff will blast away those nearby. Will end as soon as you hit or are hit.

Dat Bass:
+2 crushing, blasting, voltaic, and conflagratory damage for 4 rounds.

Sludge Metal:
Create a trail of acid behind you, but watch out! There's no acid resistance granted, so if you don't keep a move on, you'll start to melt yourself.

AoE debuffs, plus slight asphyxiative damage. You gain power from the center as long as you do not step into the smoke yourself.

Post Black Metal:
Just by attacking, create hordes of suicidal undead robots! Also, Judas Priest references! I don't think anything could be more metal.

Wall Of Sound:
Whenever you're struck, create a 'Wall of Sound' at your location. You can step out from it, but nothing - nothing! - can step in.

Skillset total stat buffs: +9 armour, -105 sneakiness, +8 blast resist, +1 slash pierce crush necro aeth tox volt resists.

Way late to the party here, but +8 blast resist sounds like fantastic synergy with Clockwork Knight. Fuck SteamPunk, this is SteamMetal! :P

Slaanesh has gifted this one with his magnificent cacophagny.

Not the biggest Heavy Metal fan, but I do like my music loud. Subscribing.

Its awfully difficult to be sneaky when your a screeching source of Metal.

I'm afraid to say this Skill tree had terrible synergy with my Sneaky skills. I mean come on, how are you supposed to sneak around with -105 sneakiness!
