The Blind Monk's Society is five week project in Navigation. Featuring Audio only navigation set in a Monty-Python-esk World of the Blind Monks.  You will need to use your headphones to take the first stumbling steps as a blind person and eventually learn how to walk blindly with confidence. You will meet many Colorful characters on your quest to help the Society and learn to SEE with your EARS.  This mod is available for Download Right HERE.


And Now A few Words From our Great Leader Brother Pancy Fants:

Greetings and Salutations occularly deficent masses of the world, I am here with Glorious News! You no longer need to fear the blindness that ails you, you will learn to see again, With Your Ears! Now I know what you are Saying, "Mr. Fants, How much is this going to cost me?" With Eye transplants running you thousands of dollars you may expect to pay $1,000.00 for my services. Does that sound like a deal? I don't think so, What If I offerd the teachings of this Course for the ridiculously low price of 4 easy installments of $29.95? Can you beat that kind of Value? You can... Well...  Umm how about if I offer you all my teachings and Gaurentee that you will learn to SEE with your EARS all you have to do is provide us, The Blind Monks Society, with a few services to be named at a later date in an undisclosed location? You agree? FANTASTIC! I can't wait to meet you at the Monastary of The Blind Monks Society.

This is a really incredible mod. Not only does it serve an educational purpose, it also manages to be more entertaining than just about any other mod that I've come across. I hope that you find the time to make a second chapter.

I thank the creator of this mod for one of the most unique game experiences I've ever played. This mod was a real blast to play and try to navigate around in. For me this is the best mod for most games I've played out right now and the only thing I want is more of it. So again, thanks for making this mod.
