Neverwinter Nights 2: Act 1, part 4 of 6

I’m finally in the good graces of Neverwinter’s City Watch but I still feel like they are squeezing every bit of cooperation out of me. Blacklake district is still closed to me. Because I’ve been such a good soldier, I’m being sent to Old Owl Well. It seems that Waterdeeps emissary has gotten himself lost and I’m the one to find him

But this wouldn’t be Part 4 without another addition to this supergroup.  On the way to Old Owl well, we meet up with Grobnar Gnomehands, a Rock Gnome, Chaotic Good Bard.

It gets better, there’s another Orc clan out there called the Eyegouger tribe and they are the real leadership behind the Orcs.  Finally some good news…Callum also tells me that there’s a mystery orcslayer out there.  I wonder if I’ll run across him.  Next stop: Bonegnasher lair.

These Orcs bare an amazing resemblance to the apes in the “Planet of the Apes”(1968).

I do miss seeing these die rolls in modern MMO’s, it’s quite satisfying seeing those numbers.

This guy turns out NOT to be the emissary.  Oh fortuna, you are cruel.

Orc clearing is cutting into my nap time.

Always bring the big guns to a sword fight.  That’s some particle effects.NWN2_SS_061214_210705

And after a few skirmishes, we make it to the Waterdeep Emissary.NWN2_SS_061214_215144

  1. Oh man. Now you have me jonesing to play a D&D game! I really don’t remember NWN2 having these animations! Maybe I just remember NWN1… Oooooo… but which D&D game to play, which one indeed…

  2. haha, thanks, i’m glad you enjoyed the post. Yeah, NW2 graphics and animations aren’t too bad for that era. I biggest hurdle was the control scheme and I just powered through that till muscle memory kicked in.
