What is Neverwinter Nights?
Neverwinter Nights (NWN) is a computer game set in a huge medieval fantasy world of Dungeons and Dragons. This role-playing game (RPG) puts you at the center of an epic tale of faith, war, and betrayal.
As a player, you are able to choose what skills and abilities you will develop as you voyage though the complex and dangerous fantasy world of Forgotten Realms. Be a deadly and dangerous Rogue moving through the shadows using stealth and secrecy, be a scholarly Wizard and wield powerful magic against your enemies, be a hulking Barbarian whose lust for battle is matched only by his terrible rage, be an armor-clad Paladin who protects the innocent and vanquishes his foes, be a crusading Cleric who heals the sick and defends the helpless… be all this and more.
Neverwinter Nights allows you to create your own worlds. This revolutionary game will come with all the tools needed to construct your own unique lands of adventure. The Neverwinter Nights Aurora Toolset allows even novice users to construct everything from a quiet, misty forest or a dripping cavern of foul evil, to a king’s court. All the monsters, items, set pieces and settings are there for world builders to use. But do not stop there; construct traps, encounters, custom monsters and magic items to make your adventure unique.
But the Neverwinter experience is not just for one person- adventure with all your friends. Neverwinter Nights can be played online with up to 64 friends, all sharing in the adventure. You can organize and run your own adventures through the role of the Dungeon Master and control all the monsters, creatures and characters your friends meet as they journey on their quest. A powerful piece of software that is included with Neverwinter Nights, the DM Client, allows nearly unlimited control for running your own adventures for your friends.
Neverwinter Nights…endless adventure!
Neverwinter Nights endeavors to be faithful to Wizards of the Coast's 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons, which will be familiar to anyone who has ever played any version of D&D.
Hordes of the Underdark. The world is ignorant. Most will sleep away the blackest night and awake to welcome the new light of dawn secure that the light always returns. Not for all. Deep under the crust of humanity and civility is a place where nightmares never rest. Where the light of day cannot shine and slithering horrors dwell in the pits only seen in the visions of a madman. An entire world waits to be explored. An entire world waits for a bringer of light. The Underdark waits.

In a party with a cowardly Wererat, a scarred Nymph, an exiled Rakshasa, and a quick-tempered Azer, you seem to be the only normal one... but are you? Embark on a journey to face your nemesis outside the embattled ramparts of the Keep of Cyan. It is a journey that will test your loyalties and cause you to question the very bounds of life and death.

"Looking back now, I can see that it all began on that fateful day, when I was summoned to the Imperial Academy to perform my graduation ceremony..."

The module that started it all, Witch's Wake 1: The Fields of Battle by BioWare's own Rob Bartel is now back and better than ever! Recently remastered to bring it up-to-date with the latest new content, this new edition of the classic Hall of Fame module lays the official groundwork for the upcoming Witch's Wake 2: The Witch Hunters.
In the module's opening scene, you awake on a raging battlefield to bear witness to your Prince's dying words: "Tell the King that she is dead." Those seven fateful words mark the start of a journey that will propel you from the edge of a dying world into its very heart. Questions abound and answers are few. Who is your King and where will you find him? Who is this 'she' that your Prince says is dead? Who were the men and women, all frozen corpses now upon that field of battle, whose uniform you share? Most importantly, who are you and why did you alone survive?
This introductory module will take you all the way to Brogan's Arm, a village of Barrow Dwarves nestled south through a narrow mountain pass. Be careful, however, for the fires of Stygia lurk not far below the surface.
