Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update August 8, 2008   Well, it's been a long time since I have done an update. I have been so busy lately that I haven't had much time to research anything for the community works section, but I wanted to come here and fill you in on some of the progress we have been making.   If you haven't heard already, we have an expansion in the works. Yes, it's true! The expansion (which we refer to as NX2) is titled Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir. With th

Interim Community Update

Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update May 2, 2008   It's been a while since the last community update. As such, I thought I would give you a little teaser for some of the 1.13 patch notes, while I write the real Community Update. Please remember that this list is very much incomplete.   Bug Fixes   General The toolset and game now load hak files in the same order. Skills such as Search will no longer broadcast multiple messages to the chat window while in use. A single mes

Neverwinter Nights Community Update March 28, 2008   Well, it seems I can't get to this blog in any sort of timely manner. Working on the patches has taken up much more of my time than I anticipated. Because of this, I am going to offer community members the opportunity to send in articles for the Blog. Your articles can be about anything NWN2-related. If there is a bit of Custom Content you like, a persistent world you are excited about, a module that seems fun and interesting, or anyt

Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update February 29th, 2008.   Being that today is the 29th of February, a slightly different day, I thought I would do something slightly different for today's Blog. For about two hours today Khaveen gathered questions from members of the NWN2 community then passed them on to me for answers. For various reasons, I was not able to answer all of them, but the vast majority are answered below. I am also going to announce a new contest for the NWN2 community.

Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update February 17, 2008   This week's Blog is dedicated to the fine folks over at the Neverwinter Nights Podcast.

We will also feature another Persistent World spotlight and talk a bit about the upcoming patch.   Community Works   RWS Pocket Cathedral

Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update February 1, 2008   Just a quick update on the patch progress today since I was out of office for a week+. I will be going through the volunteers for the closed beta next week, so you may receive an e-mail or PM from me.   I think next week I will give another update and include some community content and perhaps a PW spotlight, for those of you that have been missing that.   So, without further delay...

Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update January 11, 2008   Quick update today as things are pretty busy with 1.12 getting underway...   3d Model Contest Just a quick update on the model contest. We received a lot of great entries. Unfortunately, many of those entries also came with the accusation of plagiarism. That means the entries have to be reviewed for authenticity, unfortunately this is proving difficult. I am now planning to announce the winners in February to give us time to

Neverwinter Nights 2 Community Update August 31, 2007     For this edition of the Community Update, we are going to start off with a note from Nathaniel Chapman. He is one of the Assistant Producers on NWN2 and MoTB and is now leading the effort for ongoing support with the game. This is in the patch notes, but I thought it would be good to post here as well. We will also take a look at the Invisible Blade prestige class and some great spears made by community member, Feydakin.
