There's only so many times one can play the official campaigns and after about 4 years I began to look for additional content. Obviously I have the Kingmaker Expansions
, but for various reasons I decided to look further. Here are my notes, which consist of sections as follows,
| Hero's Path
| Character Creation
| Some other ideas
| The NWN Podcasts
| HoU cross over
| Community Expansion Pack
There is a category label, aka Tag for NWN
in this wiki which will allow you to browse all my NWN

Browsing the VaultBioware
seeded a community site, http://nwvault.ign.com/.
This has a login and profile, and a portfolio
, which allows you to bookmark various resources, including portraits, hakpaks and modules. It is the
site for all module pubication.
The Vault has a number of recommendation tools, and I have found,
has a nearly made it page, called the Overlooked Module list
I have tried an not finished
The Bioware Forums
have a thread called, the Hero's Path
, a sticky in NWN Modules Dsicussion
forum. The originator says,
The purpose of this list is to make it easier to find good mods for established characters or small groups of characters so that players may string together a series of adventures across multiple modules with the same character(s)
This list points at amongst others, renditions of famous PnP
stories including the Giants Series
and Descent to the Depths of the Earth
, concluding with Queen of the Demonweb Pits
. I have these linked in my vault portfolio. While following the Hero's Path
at bioware forums, I came across these two modules,
In order to play Journey of a 1000 miles
, I needed a 12th level character and so found the Pretty Good Character Creator / Customizer (PGC3) powered by IGIPE
and Boutique du Temps
. I used +PGCC to create a character for "Journey...", I'll let you know how awesome, the generated character is when I am done. I have also tried Boutique du Temps, which is very expensive! I also found The Lion's Head Tavern
, which has an Inn and a shop, where you can buy pretty much what you want, Armour, Weapons, Magic and more ordinary stuff. This pretty much allows you to create and equip a character for any adventure/module. (It may well be the basis of re-awakening my interest in the game.
Needs more on +PGCC, cep2.0, magic forge and item swapping and the portal
Some Other Ideas.
I also came across recommendations for the following NWN modules, I can't remember where
- Tales of a Mage, levels 1-5, arcane caster only and
- Resurrection Gone Wrong, which is claimed to be humorous, character levels 1 - 7, but sounds like a serious breach of the 4th wall and
- The Aielund Saga
There is a thread at g3.net
called What are some of your favorite NWN modules?
. It includes recommendations for the following.
- Hex Coders,by Stefan Gagne, ...modern civilization is one of prosperity and safety, with all magic legally controlled by a monolithic business called the Cathedral Corporation. As part of the underground magic movement known as the Hex Coders....
- Elgio Eturnium,, also by Stefan Gagne. It started out as such a simple quest… there you were, a bold adventurer, seeking a magic staff. There was an inn on the edge of nowhere, with a group of friendly locals willing to help… and then matters got more and more complicated, more horrific...
Ideas from the NWN Podcast
Some ideas have been generated by following the NWN Podcast
. Those I have found include
is meant to be played using your character from SoU, despite meeting the NPC's from Neverwinter Nights. These two adventures are meant to help you obtain the additional levels between the end of SoU and the begining of HoU. Shadohaunt
may even give you a narrative and is jolly well reviewed on the 'vault.
~~Shadohaunt needs a snip of its own, good, atmospheric, varied quest
Community Expansion Pack
A bunch of enhancements on which several/many modules are based. There are two versions.
and the vault also has an HTML Index
for the downloads, and a support forum
for their products
Teh Neverwinter Podcast was taken over by Realms of Trinity
, an NWN2 persistent world publisher, who not unnaturally make the persistent worlds sound quite attractive
