Horror Module Collection [NWN1]

List of Modules/PWs with Dark/Twisted theme.

The idea of this list is inspired by ZeornWarlock's Survival Horror Collection. However, the author is no longer update the list. Then I clone the list and include more modules I have tried or through the suggestion from other player.

The modules/PWs that fulfill the requirement: They have some sort of survival horror or terror theme to them. Or at least display something in which could potentially spook the players.

The modules/PWs that don't: Only whack undead creatures in a hack and slash game. Just bashing undead or by having them in a module doesn’t necessarily mean it's a horror story.

Name Description
Almraiven by Fester Pot

Rated Teen.
The adventure takes place within the nation of Calimshan on the eastern shore in a port city known as Almraiven. Almraiven is a full city adventure and is the first installment of two modules. "The dark silhouette of the High Tower looms ahead, reaching upward like the many jagged rocks and dead trees that surround the area. For many years it has been home to you and it is within those walls you were taught the arts of the arcane by Bakadah, your master. It is on this night that your training comes to an end and your acceptance into the Auren Society of Weavers is at hand. The Auren draw their power from a weave that spans into the Land of the Dead. It allows such members to grasp a better understanding of the spirits that roam that realm and use it to their advantage. As of late the weave has felt tainted, as if it has been soiled in some way. Even your assistant Charles, who you summoned from the Land of the Dead, complained of headaches and the like. The dead should not do this. It is this very taint that has awoken the Council of the High Tower from their slumber in tombs they have remained within for one-hunded and sixty years. On this night your first assignment is to come from Bakadah, an assignment given directly to him by the Council of the High Tower. You have been chosen. Your time has come."

Shadewood by Fester Pot

The sequel of Almraiven.

Rated Teen.
Shadewood is a full wilderness adventure and is the second and final installment of two modules. ----- "The creak of branches catch your ear as you come to the boundary of the wood. Known to many as the Forest of Mir, the wood has grown out of control over the past few months. The trail left behind in Almraiven has brought you here; a foul wood that has been attacking those along the Western Passage, or so the locals of Almraiven have said. Branches reaching a little too far, roots curling upward to entangle the passer-by and wandering spirits have been on the tongues of many. It is here your investigation continues. What started as a simple investigation will end with the Auren Society of Weavers closing the pages of old and opening up a new chapter in the Arts of the Arcane. Bring your skills Weaver, for you will need them all."

Threat of Dreams 1 - The Hunger and the Sickness v3.5 by Chris "GhostFactory" Thornton Rated Mature.
Camshire, city of ancient soul and murderous heart. A metropolis shackled in the grip of wrought-iron tyranny. Within its groaning walls and weeping alleys lies a hurtful thing. The taunting whisper of promise. A sketchy portait of hope. And who will voice that whisper, whose portrait will grace that deliverer's canvas? You? Will you flounder in your humble origins, scraping like a listless knife through the urban gloom? Or will you make a thrall of change, thrusting your reprisal down the throats of the oppressors? Dare you brave the Threat of Dreams?

Strange times have come to Camshire. The shadows have grown eyes that study, fingers that caress, teeth that hurt. A venomous infection has begun to rack the city’s aching walls, bringing a haunted fever of paranoia to the skittish masses within. The sky grows darker with each passing hour, threatening to make permanent secrets of the lies and ills cast upon the haunted souls who call this place home. Perhaps a light will flicker and grow in the belly of the gloom, shedding light on the miseries and effect their withering. Perhaps hope lies in a heart tainted with truth.
