It's a sequel? To Hordes of the Underdark? For your level 30 character? Hmm.

The dev said level 16-19 in an interview. I assume that's to start, but I'm not sure.

You'll be able to import a character from NWN EE if you like, but you'll be stripped of the gear you had at the end of the original game until you reach a certain point.

I thought it was a sequel to the OC. Fits with being in the teens.

Well the mod maker is Alazander, and his track record speaks for itself. He created some of the best free and paid mods for NWN. I'll definitely chip in to help development.
To be blunt, I don't want to devote a substantial chunk of my life to something that does not equal or exceed the quality of my previous projects. This applies not only to story and design but also to presentation. This is not an official Ossian Studios or Wizards of the Coast-approved project. This is 100% fan-funded and produced. The campaign will be split into seven chapters, each with 5-10 hours of gameplay. The campaign will require a narrated introduction, several new monsters, new portraits, a gorgeous world map, and new music, all at a high level of professional quality. This will cost several thousand dollars. In order to voice important NPCs, the budget will grow substantially larger again. I need your backing to ensure my vision is realised and players receive a commercial-quality, official campaign-sized adventure that makes no compromises.

Bit off topic but would highly recommend Luke Scull's Grim Company books to anyone who hasn't read them

Yes, I think that's correct. I know Hordes of the Underdark makes some references to the OC but I guess it's not a sequel exactly?

While I'm glad a veteran NWN module creator is taking on a new project, unfortunately I can't get excited about this one. I never finished the OC as like many others I found it extremely dull. Same with Hordes of the Underdark. Far too many trash encounters for my taste, especially for a game where I really don't enjoy the combat.

I'm still hoping Fester Pot releases the third installment of Almraiven / Shadewood someday though.

I quite enjoyed Hordes of the Underdark. It was definately more IWD than BG for sure though. Also I happened to play with a very powerful build, a Kensai weaponmaster/katana with a massive critical profile that did 200-300 damage a hit on a regular basis. I think I finished it in less than 10 hours which probably stopped it from overstaying it's welcome.

I'm going to keep an eye on this one but I am one of the many who shelved NWN after playing through the offical campaigns pretty quickly so I'm not overly excited.

Yep I quite enjoyed the expansion campaigns especially Hordes of the Underdark. Well any mod with drow gets my interest quickly thanks to my favorite author Ed Greenwood.

Here are some drow focused mods.
