Neverwinter


Wizards just released the Neverwinter campaign setting last week. Its based around the region of forgotten realms that was the setting for both videos games and goes more in depth about the places and people of the area then the basic forgotten realms campaign book does. I was never really a fan of NWN but a lot of D&D folks still play the game. I think one of its biggest draws was the customize-ability and the fact that you could program your own encounters and run it with friends.

A heroic campaign set in one of the most popular regions of the Forgotten Realms world.
Reduced to ruins by supernatural cataclysms, Neverwinter rises from the ashes to reclaim its title as the Jewel of the North. Yet even as its citizens return and rebuild, hidden forces pursue their own goals and vendettas, any one of which could tear the city apart.
Neverwinter has long been one of the most popular locations in the Forgotten Realms campaign world. This book presents a complete heroic-tier campaign setting that plunges players into the politics, skullduggery, and peril of a city on the brink of destruction or greatness. A wealth of information about Neverwinter and its environs is provided: maps, quests, encounters, and statistics — everything a Dungeon Master needs for his heroic tier adventures.

  1. Didn't Nwn had something to do with the Dragonlance universe? I remember reading a few of those novels when I was 14 or so.
    I'm afraid of rereading them because back then it was pretty much the greatest thing ever and I'm pretty sure that they were actually terrible.

  5. A bit much, but then again NWN really is such a great game and sounds like it would make for some really fun campaigns.
