The Road to NWN2

This is now an old game but I need to move on to it, maybe to complete the circle and go back to BG2 in the Aurora engine. Over the summer of 2014, the NWN Vault, the community repository for Neverwinter Nights has just shut, and closed, the seemingly best alternative for user authored content is the new Neverwinter Vault, and this is supplemented by NWN2 at wikia.com. This page talks about character builds. Continue reading “The Road to NWN2”

NWN Community Expansion Pack

This article has broken links. DFL July 2013. The Community Expansion Pack is what it says; a collection of packaged changes, they are used in a number of mods. It’s an omnibus package. This page documents my notes on how to install it. There are two versions of the CEP named, One & Two. Continue reading “NWN Community Expansion Pack”

WINE and NWN

This page is about my attempts to install NWN under WINE on my MAC. I finally got this working in March 2011 and then attempted to ensure that this page focuses on the NWN actions and runes, and that my WINE page deals with installing WINE on the MAC. I returned in 2014, to try and get NWN2 working. The page consists of several sections, my initial work in 2009, and the further work when I tried to install NWN2 after my Mavericks upgrade. The sucessful install with Winery is documented in the section called Winery 2014. Continue reading “WINE and NWN”

Dello in Neverwinter

I finished my second run through Neverwinter Nights the other week, with a Barbarian called Dello. I started with a low charisma, but its not a good idea to take a low charisma character through this game, a number of story lines are not available and there’s not a lot of compensation, well apart from the extra attributes. Anyway, I cheated his charisma up using Leto. Continue reading “Dello in Neverwinter”

NWN Playing a Wizard

Some notes on Playing a Mage in the NWN Official Campaign. I made her an Evoker. An extra spell per level, but you lose “Summoning”. I have never played a wizard under wither V2 or V3 rules, and it’s really changed. I need to check up on the offence, defence, buffing, protection and counterspells. About the specialisation, despite losing summoning, neither Shades nor Mordenkian’s Sword are summoned, it would seem. This article contains broken Bioware links.

Binky Netzen

This is one of a series of NWN character notes. Binky is fighter/thief who travels with Mischa Waymeet in the NWN game, Shadow of Udrentide. I am not sure that the fighter/thief was such a good idea. See Of Fighter/Thieves @ http://forums.rpgforums.net. I discuss the difficulty in keeping up with the game since the scales are no longer exponential. (See also Playing a Rogue on this wiki.)I have still kept the classing at evens for the moment. i.e. until the end of Shadow of Udrentide. This will allow me to adopt a third class if I choose. Continue reading “Binky Netzen”

NWN Walkthroughs

This page captures my notes on the NWN, so-called, Official Campaign i.e. the first released game for NWN1. It is the story of the rise of the Hero of Neverwinter, who defeated the plot of the “Old Ones” return. This was copied from wiki V.1 on 22nd June 2013. Some of the internal links need to be revised.  The early Bioware links are broken forever! And now the Vault links are also broken. Continue reading “NWN Walkthroughs”

NWN Making new modules

I decided I wanted to author a module. So I found the obvious resources and links and started the tutorial, the Invasion of Fern. [Aurora Toolset Tutorial] I, of course, found some stuff to be missing. This page is my my how to code a module page. This article contains broken Bioware links and now broken Vault links.
