PC games like Neverwinter Nights 2


It's time we had a new game we could make our own, again.

In recent years, we've seen a lot of attempts to bring Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop RPGs to modern PC gamers in the MMORPG format to varying levels of success (Dungeons & Dragons Online and the Neverwinter MMO being only two such examples), but each of these lacked the feel of a good old-fashioned tabletop campaign.

There's no replacing the sense of accomplishment at the end of a good player-driven story campaign with the pre-scripted quests common in MMOs. MMOs have their good points, but they often miss the point behind role-playing games. It's time to bring tabletop gaming back to the PC in a way that hasn't been seen since the Neverwinter Nights series.

Be anyone you want to be.

Where Our Journey Begins

In June of 2002, BioWare released Neverwinter Nights, a role-playing video game with single and multiplayer modes of play and utilized the Dungeons & Dragons 3rd edition core ruleset. This was not, in itself, new; BioWare had already breathed new life into the PC role-playing game genre with the release of in 1998.

What made Neverwinter Nights and its sequel, so special? It was the level of customization each of these titles allowed players with the toolsets bundled with the games. With the toolsets, players could create their own campaigns to play with friends - but it didn't have to stop there.

With the Aurora toolset, if you could dream it, you could (probably) do it.

Persistent Servers

Players could create and host servers with entire persistent worlds where they could meet other like-minded D&D players from around the world, and run stories in an on-going setting on a much larger scale than your typical tabletop group of four or five people.

Servers could be hosted with an entire staff of Dungeon Masters, with quests being run at any given point in the day or night. New content, including special classes and feats, could be made by players and implemented in their servers. People who had never even thought of trying Dungeons & Dragons before played Neverwinter Nights, and not only were they hooked on the PC game, but many branched out into playing the tabletop 3.5 edition. It was the perfect creative outlet for anyone with a story to share with the world.
