The purpose of this list is to make it easier to string together a series of adventures across multiple story-based Neverwinter Nights 2 modules using the same character. In order to be listed here, I set the criteria below. While not perfect, but these criteria permit the construction of a fairly comprehensive list of modules appropriate for this play style without requiring that I personally evaluate each one of these entries. If you have suggestions for modifications of these criteria, you are invited to post your recommendations!
To be listed, a module must...
a) have a minimum starting level requirement of level 2 or higher.
b) not assume that a character have already played through a specific mod for plot/item/scripting reasons (exceptions: modules created as sequels to official campaigns).
c) not include pregenerated characters that it is assumed you will use in the module.
d) not strip a character of all her/his equipment/experience and never return it.
e) have a score of at least 7.00 on the Old Vault, or be in the Old Vault’s Hall of Fame; all newer modules (created 2013+) are eligible for the time being.
f) must not be a utility module, a persistent world, an arena, or strictly a PvP module.
g) be written in English
h) not be an official expansion or premium module.
Modules are listed by recommended starting level (denoted lv x-y). Following the module name is the recommended number of players
for a module (x-y pl), if specified. I have also included any comments regarding the type of character(s) you should use, as indicated by the authors. Please keep in mind that I have not played the majority of these mods, so I’m working largely from descriptions/readme’s.

Finally, as your characters move between these modules, consider using the FRW Character Creator as a waystation between modules. Sell junk, buy basic gear, level up as needed, and get rid of cursed & nodrop items.
Note: This list is a work in progress. It includes only those modules that have been posted to the Vault, so many more modules will need to be added as the migration continues.
