Will DoP be moddable in any way? A lot of times, when a game supports user created content, it tends to increase and sustain a larger community. Just look at Fate!

Yes, DoP is very modable. All of the assets are packed into standard zip files and most of the important data is in the assets somewhere. Most of the time especially if it is gameplay related, it is in the database files which are all text and easily changed.

At least one of my testers has gone looking, found, and made changes to the the game multiple times to try out different things.

That is *awesome*. I'm especially stoked that the data is made available in plain text, because this opens the door to developing user-made editors and the likes. That was an incredibly smart move on Soldak's behalf, you've guaranteed yourselves extended shelf life. :D
