NWN persistent worlds

A friend of mine wanted to get back into NWN and do the whole campaign with his his GF and I. So we bought the NWN diamond pack from GOG. Anyway she takes a fairly short look at it and goes, “Id rather play Diablo 3.” Of course my friend is now playing D3 with her although he, at some point wants to do the original mods all over again.

So, with some time to kill id like to check out some persistent worlds. There seem to be a lot of them still on the game browser. I am looking for some recommendations. I am interested in worlds that offer a lot of interesting areas to explore. Any suggestions?

Sorry, don’t know much about the persistent worlds.


Show her the Lord of Terror campaign.

It’s the best of both worlds. It’s a very faithful re-imagining of the original Diablo - and on top of that you get the best character development system of pretty much any RPG (imo).

Ok, so NWN isn’t pretty - but it’s FANTASTIC as a cooperative game.

It’s even got the music from Diablo and all the speech.

It’s also 100 times the game Diablo 3 will ever be.

It’s been ages, but I remember Ravenloft: Prisoners of the Mist being pretty well done. You can sort the servers by the number of players on them and that’s generally a good indicator of what the better PW servers are at the moment.

Check out the Endless Nights series of modules too. I’ve actually been playing them lately and they’re very fun. An excerpt from the module description:

Endless Nights IV is a dynamic world with random monster spawns, random quests, and random magic item generation to create a very replayable game experience. The game also features monster-races, such as orcs, goblins and bandits, that come in a variety of classes and levels. The module also includes a death and ranking system, a magic item creation system, a magic item modification system, and the ability to play on both the good and evil as well as neutral.

Oh boy, last thing my backlog needed right now was a nostalgia kick… some of my best gaming moments were with NWN.

Ditto. I loved THE HELL out of that game. Especially with some of the better mods, and multiplayer gaming. Fantastic.

I used to play a PW, but I can’t remember what it’s called…lemme do some googling and see if I can find it, assuming it’s still around.

EDIT: No luck finding anything that seemed familiar…it may have died off. I am a little surprised to see what an active community the original NWN still has going, though!
