GIVING US HD ON A GAME THAT WAS BUILT ON SHIT PIXELS IS NOT WORTH CHARGING $20 PLUS DAY 1 DLC.

RESTORING SERVER FUNCTIONALITY WHEN WE HAD NWNSCRY IS NOT A FUCKING FEATURE WORTH RERELEASING FOR!

PROMISING MORE ENHANCEMENT FEATURES FOR EVEN MORE CASH IS NOT WORTH RELEASING A 16 YEAR OLD GAME AS A FINISHED PRODUCT!

Thankfully this game isn't meant to be played as a game but as a module-maker with the games showcasing features you can implement into modules (and being fully customizable). I don't think Beamdog will be able to just throw in Trannies as easily as they did with Baulder's Gate, but this is still fucking bullshit and I can't believe people are defending this level of fucking kikery.

That was only ever for persistent worlds, and they did that because after gamespy went bottom up on us, you could log in as anyone because the authentication server was down.

Sort of. NWN's original campaign was meant to showcase what you could do with the toolset, and was meant to be the heroes of Neverwinter as an online module. Bioware wanted to release a platform that would let you create your own adventures and play them over LAN or online, and they put about 2/3rds of the game's budget into the aurora toolset. Players were upset because they bought the game expecting another epic like Baulder's Gate and instead they got a generic piece of shit MC with very little in the way of interesting plot since it was really meant for modders to open the files and examine the scripts and such to create their own shit/inspire plebs who wanted to build modules minus the scripts. Bioware then leased out creating modules to another company who made Shadows of Undrentide which was such a huge success that it brought in the funds they wanted. At that point Bioware actually got the dev team together and they put together a serious module (that still shilled toolset features) which is where you got Hordes of The Underdark and all the premium modules that followed (of which funnily enough the free ones that couldn't make it under Bioware's scrutiny turned out to be the most complete/the best like Infinite Dungeons and Darkness over Daggerford).

VanIlla NWN is dogshit, but SoU and HoTU are both good, fully complete games by themselves.

They did port the Infinity games to tablets before GemRB, for whatever that's worth. I don't think any RPG would actually be enjoyable on a tablet unless it was turn based like Fallout, due to the complexity of Infinity games' interfaces.

This is blatant derailment for contrarians who can't wait to jump on the next hatewagon. Beamdog's fault is altering content and overpricing it: GOG keeps content updated to work on current machines without fucking with it.

GOG deep down is about paying someone to patch the game for you. Leet kids can live without that, but it's dishonest to think they're as jews as socjus infested Beamdog.

Good old camelface is known for "The Guild", a shitty web series that rode on the LOL SO NERDY XD cancer. Many a thirsty beta with absolutely no standards when it comes to females were attracted to this hideous creature, and since many of those work for BioWare, they managed to weasel the ugly bitch into Dragon Age 2 as an elf character.

Since I imagine these same soycucks are now working at Beamdog and still have no standards when it comes to women, she's still their waifu and the rest of humanity needs to suffer his hideous visage.

NWN is perfect if you want to familiarize yourself with 3E rules so you can play the superior Icewind Dale 2 without much hassle.

Otherwise, NWN is average but Hordes of the Underdark is good. HotU uses your Shadows of Undrentide character through import, but you can just make your own at the appropriate level. You'll gain the experience once you start the module.

Before that she was played a side character in Buffy. Now all the thirsty gamma weenies are putting her into everything they can put her into, because moefagging a Camel is apparently neither weird nor pathetic.

It's buggy as fuck even after all of the updates (maybe more – I can't stack stats, only the highest ones apply for some reason), but it's a genuinely good game.

You have a big cast of characters to choose from to accompany you, and there so many classes the potential for min-max fuckery or weird builds is immense (the OC is a level 1-20 game, so it just hits the sweet spot after a while).

The story is nothing spectacular, but there is enough to keep you interested and there are some really fun moments like the trial.

NWN already runs fine on modern machines, there's no point to the EE version except a cash grab.

I played NWN last year, and the first two parts are pretty easy, but Underdark actually requires some thinking beyond smashing your face into the enemies. The stories between the the base game (Level 1), Undrentide (Level 1 new character), and Underdark (Level 15, or from Undrentide) are barely connected. You don't need to play them all if you just want to play Underdark, which is the best of the three. The only thing you'll miss is not knowing about Aribeth, and the mercenaries. They'll explain who they are, anyways.

It's worth a playthrough, but not a replay.

TIME FOR MY PASTA

Fuck it, I'm bored off my ass and wan't to talk about this game.

Installing the game

First, you actually want to get NWN, so go torrent NWN Diamond edition from Piratebay or something, this is generally the one you want, you don't want to piss about wuth DLing NWN stanalone then the expansions.

Win7 user will have trouble with installastion, so you need to follow this guide in order to ensure you don't mess up:

http://social.bioware.com/forum/Neverwinter-Nights-1/NwN-1-Technical-Support-Self-help-for-all-versions-and-expansions/Installing-NWN1-for-Win7vista-including-patch-links-for-all-OS--3341490-1.html

http://nwn.wikia.com/wiki/Windows

You may also suffer from issues involving non playing cutscenes in the start of campaign chapers when playing or chrome/silver skin at character creation.

The chrome skin issue is usually fixed by simply installing the critical rebuild 1.69 patch found here:

http://www.gog.com/forum/neverwinter_nights_series/why_is_my_characters_skin_silver

The non playing cutscene issue is caused by a number of different problems, but the first thing you must do is install Bink, found here:

http://www.radgametools.com/bnkdown.htm (First DL link)

Here are some sites which can usually help you fix this issue.

http://www.gog.com/forum/neverwinter_nights_series/videos_and_cutscenes

Using this is how I fixed my Non playing cutscens issue in NWN, however, so it's probably this one.

http://mirror.aleturo.com/Games/NWN/

Additionally, disable the shiny water option sound ingame, it's a shit, causes savegame bloat and crashes.

Now that you've pretty much installed NWN Diamond edition patched it and made sure you've got no issues, It's time to install the Premium modules, which you can find here:

http://social.bioware.com/forum/Neverwinter-Nights-1/NwN-1-General-Discussion-Forum-No-Spoilers-Allowed/UNOFFICIAL-links-to-redownload-previously-purchased-Premium-modules-4746466-1.html

Download and intstall all of these.

So now, you've pretty much got all of the Vanilla content. Save for Darkness over Daggerford, which was cancelled.

You might also want a fan made module on what happens between Shadows of Unrentide and Hordes of the Underdark, plenty of those on the neverwinter vault.

Community patches/gameplay improvements

Here I will list mods that are to NWN what the Unofficial Oblivion patch is to Oblivion, you'll want to download these for sure.

http://www.neverwinternights.info/index.htm

Community Patch

http://www.neverwinternights.info/p170.htm

A community patch for all those nasty bugs 1.69 didn't fix.

Also will merge data in you .2da folders togther rather tha overrite if you place them in a folder and run a batch file, so it works with just about anything, includign any installations of the PRC or other modifications you may have installed.

Lastly, there's the PRC, which is a mod that injects a buttload of D&D 3.5 classes and a shitload of other stuff for choice at character creation, amongst other things, such as sub-races that if you name at the begining of character creation, will be seen as their own race.

Before installing the PRC (And most mods anyway) you want this:

http://www.neverwinternights.info/nwncx.htm


3db292 No.14578328

>>14578327

NWNCX extends what NWN can actually do, and is needed to select the PRC base classes at character creation.

Lastly you want something called Leto 1.69 PRC edition I think, for editing PRC characters and stuff.

Honestly, this is taken from an old guide I wrote on the subject as much has changed on the modding scene since then, as we now have a working mod manager that works in the same fashion as the Mod organiser for bethesda games, which is a godsend compared to drag'n drop Override files to NWN1.

There'd be more links to mods here, but they were all to the old neverwinter vault, whcih shut down and changed to a new site, so they no longer work, and their search engine is piss, so it's hard to fidn the old stuff.

Anyhow, the basic stuff you want is the game fully patched with cutscenes working then the community patch, the PRC being optional if you want it, as you have things like the CEP needed for Custom created modules to play, or persistant servers and whatever.

One more thing, most moduels want these massive fuckass collections of assets, one called the CEP, and the other Project q.

Get both, and also get the CEP 2.1 (An older version) as some modules use it, such as a Hunt through the dark, a popular series of Drow modules.

Oh right, and put the game's .exe's in compatiblity. for windows XP and run as Admin, that's one of the most important things.

There's also a Mod manager for installing mods now, which you can find on the nexus, it's a bit buggy now, but the author is open to bug report submissions.

It's a lot better than the manual method, anyhow.

ALSO

FUCK BEAMDOG, I BET THEY DIDN'T PUT HALF OF THE SHTI HERE INTO THE GAME

::::::::::::::::::::Understanding the game's file structure::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Not gonna lie, before we go on, if you're used to modding Bethesda games then this is pretty much a breeze to pick up, it's practically dag and drop really.

Before you go about modding, make sure your NWN directory has a 'portraits', folder in it, if not, make it, and inside make two folders named Male and Female for later, and make sure you have a 'Hak' folder and a 'override' folder

Readme's found in other peoples mods will pretty much teach you outright where to put mods and such, but for a quick rundown on what's what, read below

The portrait folder is where character portraits go, and the male and female folders are subfolders for this which will separate male and female portraits ingame PROVIDED the portrait pictures

have an extra character which indicates that the portrait is singled out by sex (Unfortunately I do not know what character this is, and modders are lazy, so they often don't bother with this and leave it, simply placing it in the portraits folder, meaning iingame the portrait can be used by both sexes)

The Hak Folder is home to .hak and .hif files (I think) .Hak files are pretty much compressed archives for modules (THE GAME) that have bundles of content in them to be used by custom modules.

You can extract these files via certrain modding tools and if you want to customize what is default in your NWN game, then it's suggested you get these tools, because some mods have their content packaged in .hak and don't have them uncompressed.

And now, the most important of all The ovverride folder which is the folder which will host the joys of your replacer mods.

Anything that is of the same file type and filename of anything found in the default NWN game's directories is overwritten by whatever if in this folder that has said filetype and filename.

For the most part, the replacers are model and texture replacers, as larger mods such as unnoficial patches or gameplay changes are somewhat scarce on the NWN modding scene.

Creatures models are usually filnamed with a preceeding 'C_' then the name, but in some user content, this isn't the case.

An example of a creature model would be C_Air.mdl for the air elemental found in all NWN campaigns.

Textures are also named this way in most cases for vanilla assets too., but some Creature replacers use .DDS files instead of .TGA for their models in some cases, and sometimes do not have the 'C_ preceeding them'.

You can also create your own replacers by renaming models of your choice to a name in question.

Please note that you don't always need a model and it's coressponding texture to do a replacer, as the texture will be utilized by the ingame models instead.

The Module folder holds your game modules, in other words the custom campaigns which you can play, and these modules will rely on .Haks, TLK and other content found in your NWN directory.

There are other folders to talk about but you won't be fiddling with them as much, so I'm leavng it at this.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::Tools and resources::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Normally the average player would avoid these because they're for modders and the like, but there are a few that I reccomend you have at your disposal, because they will be imperitive if you want to customize and use overrides

NWNExplorer:

This bad boy lets you view models (Most of them anyway) extract content from .hak packs and the game directories and open up NWN files and the like.

A must have for anyone who wants to preview the goods before usinng them (Planet neverwinter likes to be crude when it comes to screenshots, they're small as crap)

MDL retexturizer

Lets you retexture MDL files, all you've got to do is open one up, insert the filename of the new texture you want the model to use, then BAM! instant newly textured model, ain't that sweet?

NWN Override Manager http://andyvioustv.might be a bot, summon Mark to correct/

Lets you choose what ovverride directories the game will pick when you play, so it's great if you want to mix n match stuff up.

Leto 1.69: http://nwvault.please use archive.ism/View.php?view=other.Detail&id=1288

A character creation tool with options far beyond that of the default ingame character creation, also lets you turn certain files and creature data into playable characters too as well as edit saved character templates.

Only downside is you've got to make a bloody .jpg for custom portraits to place in the Leto folder to use them with the tool. (If you use PRC which I'll mention later, pleae get the PRC compatible version)

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::Community patches/gameplay improvements:::::::::::::::::::::::

Here I will list mods that are to NWN what the Unofficial Oblivion patch is to Oblivion, you'll want to download these for sure.

Community Patch 1.70

http://www.neverwinternights.info/p170.htm

A community patch for all those nasty bugs 1.69 didn't fix.

Also will merge data in you .2da folders togther rather tha overrite if you place them in a folder and run a batch file.

Familar and companion fixes

http://www.nexusmods.com/neverwinter/mods/97/?

Solves a bunch of crap for companions and such, must have.

Customize Character Override Hak http://www.nexusmods.com/neverwinter/mods/799/?tab=1&navtag=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nexusmods.com%2Fneverwinter%2Fajax%2Fmoddescription%2F%3Fid%3D799%26preview%3D&pUp=1

Despite the name, it isn't a .Hak file, this bad boy lets you change you head ingame, character skin colour, and pimp out your clothes.

Get this, because I know for a fact that dying objects doesn;t show up until the 2nd NWN campaign, and eve nthat takes eons to do manually.

This mod is overall compatible with pretty much everything I've thrown at it, so no need to worry.

OHS Henchman System

http://nwvault.please use archive.ism/View.php?view=scripts.detail&id=2568

Want to recruit that character you last played as a companion?

Now you can.

Best of all this mod is 100% balanced, you have to pay to recruit depending on a number of variables such as level and the shit the character is hauling, and the A.I is prett decent.

Well, ALMOST decent.

There's a bit of an issue with the character snuffing it and not coming back when you've revived them, so save often if you use the companions you make with this mod.

Aside from that, it's danm swell.

Henchman Inventory & Battle AI mod v1.08

http://nwvault.please use archive.ism/View.php?view=Hakpaks.Detail&id=4510

Makes henchmen better, not much else to say.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::BigWigs:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

This is the section for those Huge ass mods that stand out on their own because they're so danm huge you're supposed to have them outright because almost everyone uses them for their games.

Latest CEP: http://nwvault.please use archive.ism/?dir=cep/downloads

Fatass compilation of all kinds of shit

Not all Modules and campaigns are updated to the latest CEP, so you'll need the old one too, so get that in a compressed file format (.RAr .zip 7zip)

If prompted to overrite anything, when adding old CEP content to you Hak folder DON'T, because it is the older version of CEP for a reason, and you don't want to overrite those.

A Hunt through the Dark is a old campaign that uses an older CEP.

Project Q

Pretty much another compilation pack like the CEP, once again, you'll need it.

His list is so long because of all the modules and extra things. Here's mine for a basic install of the GOG Diamond Edition. Install the game first, then:

Installation Order

nwnenglish1.69hotuupdate.exe

nwnpatch171_4.exe

Rename "binkw32.dll" in installation folder to "binkw32_ati.dll".

Copy "binkw32.dll" in to installation folder. This will allow the movies to play and prevents graphics from being black.

nwnmain.exe -> Compatibility Windows XP SP 3 and Disable Desktop Composition

nwn.ini -> SafeMovie=1

If still not working, install "dxwebsetup.exe"

If still not working, install "directx_Jun2010_redist.exe"

nwnplayer.ini -> add "Max Memory Usage=128"

Use "Miles" sound driver to fix stuttering.

The binkw32.dll part is for ATI cards only. Go find the "new" binkw32.dll on the internet, it's all over the place.

Just to be totally clearr, note that the originals, compatible with preexisting mods and source ports, are still bundled untouched alongside the new poz edition. The only harm they did was increasing the price and unbundling the OST.

>>14577391

Not just on its own, but especially considering what a fiasco the computer tools for 4e were, the fact that 5e has no 1st party computer programs, and that modern 3rd-party tools (Roll20, Tabletop Sim, etc.) are total shitshows, I have to ask:

Depends on the buff.

If you wear a "Necklace of Natural Armour +1" and a "Ring of Natural Armour +2" then only the ring will apply its effect.

Whereas if you wore a "Necklace of Natural Armour +1" and a "Ring of Protection +2" then they will both apply their effects because you are getting +1 natural AC and +2 AC unlike the first example which was trying to stack +1 natural AC and +2 natural AC.

Aielund Saga: The go to mega campaign of fan mods. You'll end up at a very high level by the end, around 37 or so. Some encounters are kinda annoying, but they do give you a lot of OP gear.

Prophet Series: Hard to explain this one without giving too much away, but it's very good and the story is pretty well done. Start is a little slow, but when it ramps up, it shoots into the stars.

Swordflight Series: Pretty good one overall, combat heavy, but still has enough story to keep you going. Can be a bit difficult, but it has custom respawn system, if you choose to use it and take the XP penalty.

Elegia/Excrucio Eternum: Good story heavy ones, EE1 is pretty unique in that it is fully voiced.

The Hex Coda: Made by the same guy who did EE 1&2, is probably my personal favorite. Very unique in its setting, being a kinda sci-fi fantasy kinda thing. Was unfortunately never finished, but part 1 is worth playing, and he did dump everything he had made for part 2, and all the story notes.

Vampire Heaven Defied: If you liked Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, this one was heavily inspired by it. Short, but pretty good.

Darkness Over Daggerford: Content heavy single campaign, has a neat map system. Main campaign is a little bland, and ends kinda fast. But there are a lot of side quests that felt like the main meat of the game.

Runes of Blood: A lot like Daggerford, where it's a single campaign and a lot to do. The story has a lot of good elements for an enjoyable story, but doesn't get enough time to fully develop. But overall it has a lot to offer, and you can bang tons of sluts.

Paladin Twilight/Midnight: Neat one, lots of custom features added onto the paladin class, story is pretty decent. Very, very, puzzle heavy, has a walkthrough though. Part three was never finished, though it's not completely dead from what I've seen.

Siege of Shadowdale/Crimson Tides of Tethyr/Tyrants of the Moonsea: A weird series of sorta connected adventures. Shadowdale is pretty basic, Tethyr is very good, but you are literally drowned in so much loot, never got far into Moonsea though.

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is replacing the old NWN for more than just a $20 cash-in, you fucking mutts. The community WANTED this. Just because you're autism screeching about spending the Christmas money you got from your grandma doesn't mean that this is going to disappear.

The community has been working with Beamdog, and Beamdog went out of their way to make sure that 100% of modules work with NWN:EE. The only exception being the PRC, which needs to catch up. Well the PRC needs to update anyway, so they'll be focusing the next version on NWN:EE. It's almost like instead of rejecting the EE, they decided to embrace it.

Your contrarian hatred of modern video games makes one wonder why you don't just either make your own games, or get a new hobby. Instead you expect the world to wait for you to stop being a retard.

What new games are you talking here? I don't see any. Perhaps community would prefer NEW fucking game like on UE4 with modern graphics and all modding possibilities of NWN. I don't mind if they make Nioh-like view and combat to attract new audience. As long as it's good.

But we all well aware if this happen it's going to be always-online singleplayer feminist negrofetish shitshow with lootboxes. #BuyItYouHATERS!

HD on old game? Wow It's fucking nothing for 20 bucks. And look they're getting 35% of AAA game price for what? 1% of work?

As to part of community with potato PCs and shit, they'd be fine with old one. Nothing wrong with it. Opening source would be welcome if anything.

tl;dr Get fucked, kike.

Not even that. Just some compatibility fixes that you could already do using fanmods and a few tweaks to the UI, in return for quadrupling the price on GoG.

They're making vague promises of more new features to come, but that's not worth much as yet.

What pisses me off the most about this shit is that NWN1 is 100% perfectly functional. I just played that shit with my friends a couple of months ago. The game ran flawlessly for everyone involved on the first try without any serious tweaking. The game didn't need a remake. There was nothing wrong with it and it wasn't so dated that it was indecipherable graphically or needed any major quality of life fixes.

At least Baldur's Gate enhanced editions managed to help with multiplayer functionality and made a lot of convenient UI changes even if the side-story elements they added were pozzed. NWN1 didn't need any of that. They just repackaged the game with a couple of stolen mods attached and have the audacity to charge almost as much as the game cost more than 15 years ago. I knew they were lazy hacks, but this is disgusting.

Now lets see if they'll attempt NWN2. That shit is barely functional on a good day and would have to be completely remade from the ground up to be playable.

As someone who's involved a lot with the online NWN community, I'm genuinely saddened how almost every player is so obsessed about this piece of shit, called enhanced edition. Almost everyone posting on the forums or asked about it is praising these fucking beamdog jews, like they're doing us all a favor for getting the game's source code, doing very minor tweaks and reselling it for absurd price. So, yes, plenty of people bent over and wanted this, but maybe not all.

Only real merit I see, and one I have to admit, is improved toolset, removing plenty of previousy hardcoded things and allowing - or rather, making it easier - to add and modify things like classes and item properties. Does it warrant the price? For most of the shills, yes it does. Why? Because there are almost no fucking standards for today's vidya game consumers. Call out the devs for selling shit like premium modules (PREVIOUSLY FREE), fucking SOUNDTRACK, and portraits (==YES, SELLING PORTRAITS==)?

<shut up you faggot

<devs gotta eat

<they're doing us all a favor

<they're going out of their way to please us

<selling dlc's is a modern standard

<i don't see anything wrong with their politics

So what the fuck does it take for you to actually open your eyes? How big of a shit they have to make?

No, I didn't buy this, and I won't. Fuck them. Almost every bigger server is switching (or already did), but fuck them. The last thing that we've got is voting with our money, so, no, I'm not going to endorse these faggots, even if there's nowhere to play anymore. It's a matter of principle.

For what I know, (((sinfar))) devs have made so many changes to the original game that switching to EE would destroy them, so maybe at least this will remain. Even if I don't want to take part in this degeneracy, there are actually normal, and good, servers being prepared, that use sinfar's goodies (like character's appearance modification, making colors darker and brighter, altering height, accessories as VFX etc.).

Yes, (((sinfar))) is a special place with plenty of special people, but wouldn't generalize like that. As I said, the only thing interesting about (((sinfar))) is modification it did to the game engine, and I'm aiming at these custom servers that are being developed; they usually don't focus on all that degenerate stuff and offer good roleplay. Apparently there's one active now, The Accursed Island, but haven't checked it out myself.

This seems like an appropriate place to ask:

Should I play Baldur's Gate or Neverwinter Nights first?

I'm new to DnD games but understand their system as I'm a /tg/fag, I don't give a fuck about graphics and both excite me to just check out. Which one is the better first experience?


9c7dad No.14643714

>>14643704

You can't exactly compare them since they work with different rule sets. BG is easier overall since you don't have to deal with a fuckload of skills and feats. It also doesn't look like shit from a butt.


1a539e No.14643732

>>14643714

Yeah I was noticing Neverwinter seemed to work off 3.5 which is interesting as right now I'm running Star Wars Saga Edition for my group and it's really similar. So BG is a better intro because it's trimmed down, okay that's a good recommendation. How do their stories compare?


9c7dad No.14643745

>>14643732

The BG story is considered good, although by now anyone will be able to tell the usual Bioware tropes of "Le stronk girl rogue" and so forth immediately. NWN doesn't have any stories to write home about, the OC is really rather bland. If you want a really good story you gotta go for NWN2 and Mask of the Betrayer


1a539e No.14643755

>>14643745

Okay, I've heard a lot of good stuff about MotB. I'll check out Baldur's Gate for now and NWN2/MotB a bit later. Thanks for your recommendation.


1a539e No.14643870

One thing worth noting, I was just looking up Baldur's Gate on GOG and they don't even sell the original version anymore, you can't even fucking buy it, you have to buy the beamdog edition. My suggestion is that anyone who was on the fence about NWN and NWN 2 and wants to own them legitimately you should buy them now before you can only buy the beamdog editions. If you don't want to buy them legally then rejoice, pirates get the best of things in this situation and have no real time limits so long as people keep sharing the old gog versions.

13794a No.14645310

>>14643704

The two aren't connected, so you can play them in either order, but BG has the better interface IMHO and a much better campaign (especially BG2). NWN1's official campaigns vary from poor to mediocre, the majority of its appeal comes from the enormous number of player-made campaigns. NWN2, on the other hand, has one of the finest CRPG campaigns made, MoTB.

If you (or anyone else in your group) feel like getting your hands dirty with the toolkit, the best way to play NWN is as a digital tabletop session with a DM. NWN1's toolkit is a bit less daunting, and has more assets available online.

>>14643870

Not quite true, the originals are still bundled alongside the purchase of EE. Even if this does mean the trilogy bundle is gone, the price is increased, and the OSTs are unbundled.

Prophet is extremely overrated. Its story is just the same thing over and over and over again. The reason you can't say anything without giving too much away is that if you know one plot point, you know them all, because there's really only one plot point.

There's sex everywhere. A lot of it is non-consensual. There's an unavoidable rape scene in the first hour. There's apparently a lot of non-sexual content as well, but there's no denying it's a porn module. As the name implies, you're required to play a rogue (a female rogue; the PC is a princess who has to flee when her kingdom gets invaded).

>>14605662

Wow. Pure, uncut shilling. Truly impressive.

If Beamdog really gave a shit about the community, they wouldn't have been so fucking dismissive about full party control or how huge the singleplayer module scene is.

There was nothing wrong with it and it wasn't so dated that it was indecipherable graphically or needed any major quality of life fixes.

There was one big thing they could have improved: They could have given us full party control in singleplayer. That would have been huge. I would pay for that. It's the one major thing the game is missing, and it's been dragging the game down since the beginning. But when people brought it up, Beamdog basically said they don't want to do it because they don't like singleplayer and want everyone to play multiplayer. They've recently said they might try to unhardcode things enough that the modding community could add it. I guess we'll see. I don't have any interest in the new version otherwise.

>>14643732

The OC for NWN isn't very good from a story standpoint. Neither is Shadows of Undrentide, the first expansion. However, Hordes of the Underdark is very good. And of course, NWN also has a lot of really good modules, like Tales of Arterra and Aielund Saga.

>>14645974

He's from NWN1.

>>14645983

The NWN2 OC is awful. Insufferable characters, boring story, uninteresting combat. And overall, I just can't stand NWN2's gameplay and UI. Pretty much everything about it annoys the shit out of me except for the quickcast menu.
