  • What about Neverwinter Nights?

    How about some Nerwinter Nights material? The game is mostly baldur's gate-ish, but the online servers in evolving worlds are nice, and is great for EQ-burnouts like myself. Lots of other real players but with better graphics and game play in my opinion.

    Good game for the mmorpg crowd, especially with the expansions.

    Just a thought, since Sony isn't getting any wiser soon.

      Bioware does. I got burned out on EQ, and this game kept my fantasy-realm social interactions alive without it being the stupid grind that EQ is now.

        The Bioware NWN site can be found Here.

        I myself play on a server running The Silver Marches.

        I've never played the NWN story campain all the way through, I have more fun playing mods and building my own. I have one mod I've been kicking around for about 1/2 a year. I got the main quest I wanted it to have done but I just keep adding on to it.

          My friend's spanish teacher plays that game all the time. He plays during class and lets the students just sit there. Too bad im taking french instead. Well it kind of looked liek a cross between Diablo and this other game I played and i cant remember the name.

            Raven and I have been having nightly sessions, playing through the Shadows of Undrentide campaign.. which, in my opinion, is far superior to the original (which bored me to tears) and in a few days we should hopefully be conquering Hordes of the Underdark.

            It's a really good game, I just get frustrated with most online mods because I know I could do better. I just don't know if I want to invest the kind of time. But we won't get into how much I want to beat Herner Klenthur to death with a rusty metal oar.

            I used to play on Anchordeep because a.. friend played on it, and we role played rather well - within a week widely known and regarded as the best on the server, which was kind of odd. But it fails in the actual gameplay; it's not fun and it's very tedious to do anything.

            So I'll be playing official stuff until I make my own or find a really good one. I wish they'd start working on Witch's Wake again..

              HotU was great... until chapter 2 where it stopped working for me *sigh*. I really like the UnderDark setting though, its one of my favorite places in D&D.

                How can the sequel to Baldur's Gate be regarded as "Baldur's Gate-esque" same company, same universe, different campaign and region.

                  are the expansions worth the money?

                  I bought two copies of the original, and was sorely dissapointed when I went to Multiplayer.


                  For me, the scaling seemed off.

                  I had no hope of garnering enough power to form an effective personal motivation.

                  Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate, and the lot appealed to me because I could cheat creatively. I'm more of a puzzle-type game fan, in a lot of ways, and I'd rather solve the in-game quests of any given game rather than reload saves until i find the "right way" to do an encounter.

                  NWN in the first version felt like it was focusing on the rules, instead of the plot.

                  I might be semi-unique because , for the most part, i only do this sort of game when my net conn is unavailable, but I would welcome any advice/hints/tips/game reccomendations you could offer.

                  The Game made a very strong conceptual impression on me. I'm still loathe to abandon it, but I'm too busy to devote true time.

                  Thanks guys.

                    Neverwinter nights is not the Sequal to Bauldar's Gate, Bauldar's Gate ii is the sequel to Bauldars gate. Black Isle was the dev and publishers on those 2 games, not Bioware. on top of it, NwN is based on 3rd edition rules, not 2nd Like bauldars gate or Icewind Dale. (I believe icewind dale 2 is on 3rd edition, though i haven't palyed it so I can't really say)

                    I got the Feeling that the 1st Campaign Module that shipped with the original NwN was based more around showing what people could do with the tool set than it was about giving people a "Great" game. Neverwinter nights has never really been about playing by yourself; It was originally concieved as An online or network platform on wich to play adventuers electroniclly with friends or the masses... and It accomplishes that job very well.

                    It takes considerable effort to put together adventure modules that are anything more than Hack and slash... I know, I've made a couple in my time. Programming a persistant world that lives and breathes is an even more daunting task. One must Show everyone something diffrent and new every time they log on... and let them do anything they want within the world, As well as providing all the elements of structured adventures, while maintaining the "balance" of advancement vs. content...

                    iIf you would like to try my Attempt At such a world, send me a PM. we currently have a server running with a world Developed under the original toolset, Running SoU, with no plans to upgrde to HoTU unless there is a Legitimate reason. (public outcry, etc.) we currently have a custom made Tradeskill system, banking system, and Portal system, as well as some intresting other features... send me A PM with questions, etc.

                      SoU and HotU are very much worth the money to me, for the amazing plot alone. The original bored me so much I stopped playing after the first chapter.

                      Not to mention the epic levels, prestige classes, and other fun additions.

                      Sending you a PM, Qalme..

                        Kaylen, I installed HoU last night, and I'll be installing SoU tonight so I can crash your NWN sessions with Raven.

                          Woo. That'd be awesome. If you play up to.. hmm.. I'd have to check where we are, but I think we're just starting in the Gnoll Caves.. yeah, if you play up to there, level 3, you should be able to integrate with us easily.
