NWN Henchmen

While playing the official campaign I got fed up with the henchman’s poor behaviour in combat and started to research what can be done. I started a thread at rpgdungeon.net which discusses improving henchpersons. I write a bit about henchmen in my NWN Playing a Paladin article, which was my first, but for the later games, it’s mainly here.  Also Wikipedia had a very comprehensive article on the henchmen.

This page talks about the AI mods, Sharwyn, Mischa Waymeet & Dorna Trapspringer and the last battle in the Official/Original Campaign. Continue reading “NWN Henchmen”

NWN Playing a Druid

I am taking a Druid through Shadows of Udrentide. There’s a couple of class specific quests which are quite nice. I have reached the Asabi Camp as a Druid/Barbarian/Shifter (7,1,1) and am having some difficulty. I notice that Ashtara has very few Druid’s scrolls and not that many heals or even cure critical. Actually he has them, its just I have no Gold and they’re expensive. In this page, I discuss the difficulty I find with the Druid, the weakness of the companion &the importance of the starting WIS. This page points at a number of URLs that may no longer be there. Continue reading “NWN Playing a Druid”

Shadow of Udrentide

I got this for Xmas in 2006. The last comments made prior to copying from the orginal bliki was in July 2009. It makes reference to Bioware community resources, which have since gone away. This is the second add-on to the Official Campaign; it is followed by a game called Hordes of the Underdark. See NWN – Some Modules, and look for HoU Crossover. This is the start of a three part story which ends at Hordes of the Underdark, so start a new character to see what happens in the 17+ levels. Continue reading “Shadow of Udrentide”

Mischa Waymeet

I first talk about Mischa on my NWN Henchman page, she is published on the Bioware forums as a sticky, called Vulcano’s guide to Mischa Waymeet, the 4th henchman, and can be downloaded from her page at the Vault., or maybe here now. This page makes reference to Bioware community resources, which have since gone away, as has the Vault. Continue reading “Mischa Waymeet”

Witches Wake

I am sorry I tried this, its very short, and an unfinished work in progress and has been so for a number of years, I don’t think we’re getting part two.

While I have not tried this with a pure play fighter class, I have never met such tough rats and Kobolds.

The story is too incomplete to put up with the constant replay of the fights against monsters that should be easier.

NWN Rolgan’s Trial

Rolgan’s Trial is a quest in the Neverwinter Nights Official Campaign. This text is mainly taken from cheat-da-game.

This is a real tricky quest, and I haven’t been able to complete it perfectly, though I have tried very hard, I’m pretty sure there is no way to complete it perfectly.

He was wrong, and discovered so below. You get this quest in the Temple of Tyr, where you learn about the fate of Rolgan, a man who killed one of the army’s soldiers. Your job is to represent him, and prove that he is innocent. Continue reading “NWN Rolgan’s Trial”

NWN Playing a Paladin

This article has links to the Bioware forums which are now broken. See BiowareCommunity Forums V1.It is the notes a made when running through the game the first time. I chose a Paladin and took some bad advice. I am really not sure about running the first four levels as a fighter to get the bastard sword proficiency. The Paladin is not as tasty as I expected from V1 rules. (See below).

This needs the full size images uploaded. Continue reading “NWN Playing a Paladin”

The Last Inn

This is a NWN community written module. I downloaded this and have tried to play it twice with a pre-made wizard character. In both games after a time, all the NPC’s in the village turn hostile, won’t talk and can’t be damaged. You can’t get the next quest hints. I may try and carry on, to see if this is a hint that you shouldn’t be returning to the village, but maybe not. Continue reading “The Last Inn”
