Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter Wiki
|Release Dates||Platforms||Developer||Official Site|
One hundred years have passed since the Spellplague forever changed the magical and mysterious lands of Faerûn. Mighty empires fell and great cities toppled, leaving only monster-haunted ruins and survivors struggling to rebuild.
The city of Neverwinter, the Jewel of the North, seemed blessed by the gods. While the rest of the Sword Coast was devastated by the event, Neverwinter survived largely intact. But this was only a temporary reprieve from its inevitable doom. Nearly 75 years later, a volcanic eruption rained fire, ash and molten fury upon the city, annihilating everything in its wake.
Today, Neverwinter has restored much of its former glory. Lord Neverember of Waterdeep has taken the city under his protection and put forth a call to all adventurers and heroes of the Savage North to help rebuild Neverwinter in the hopes that one day he can lay claim to her throne and crown. But evil forces conspire in the dark places of the world, seeking to undermine all...Neverwinter is a true Dungeons & Dragons experience, brought to life with the dynamic Cryptic game engine. In the classic D&D setting of the Forgotten Realms, players will explore and defend one of the most beloved cities from Dungeons & Dragons, as it rises from the ashes of destruction.
As far as Neverwinter is concerned, we're focusing on the city itself, and the surrounding areas. As many of you have already mentioned, the world of Toril is vast, and Faerun itself is a very large continent.
There are naturally quite a few different areas outside of Neverwinter's surroundings we would like to look into, and be able to bring to life. However, I think that focusing on this one area, and the myriad of adventures that you can find there, will make for a better game at release.
We'll be talking some more about the different areas in the game as we move closer to launch. Some of them (such as Vellosk) you'll recognize immediately from the source material. Other areas however, you will find have been created specifically for Neverwinter. -quote from Stormshade on official forums.
