At the moment, my install of Dragon Age has something between 1-2 gigs worth of Fan mods. I have some official stuff, Warden's Keep, The Stone Prisoner, but almost everything outside of quest/companion/expansion add ins that I have and use is fan made, gratis.
The best of the lot, without a doubt is the Legendary and awesome Winters Forge, a huge fan mod, that allows one to forge your own weapons, armour, equipment, and to enchant it. (not runes, but you know how say Bob's Big Cuttyupper Sword that you find on a major Boss has certain abilities installed, compared to the boring iron sword you found in a chest - like +4 damage to darkspawn, or 15% chance of critical strike.) you can do all that yourself now, and built truly customised equipment. It is even a "quest" you have to find materials, reagents, scrolls and lumps of Ore and others, such as Veridium or Star Metal, and planks of wood/bundles of leather for wood and leather based items, such as Dragonskin for light armour, or Ironbark for Bows.
And if like me, you are playing the game through for the 16th or so time
you can activate the "cheats" on the Winter Forge, so you can forge equipment with any material, and add any ability/enchantment you like.
The fan made Universal Dye Kit is another must have, for "dying" ones equipment to preferred colours. Below is a pic of my current "A Team" of companions - you have more of course, but these 3 are my best.
My actual player character (Dervel) is equipped in Medium Scale Armour made out of "Star Metal" (meteorite ore, the toughest in the game) my main weapon set is Duel swords and they are 2 wonderful curved "Dar'Missu" Elven swords, enchanted with grandmaster lightening runes, and enchanted/augmented with abilities to do serious damage and wreak carnage. All dyed Black.
screenshots are a bit blurry/messy because I uploaded them to chronicles.
