Pawn Migrate Wizard 2015-09-22 4 years 4 months ago

An angry, stark gray sky rumbled its displeasure to the crude earth many long miles beneath its shadow. Lightening swept down and played havoc with an ancient forest of a bygone age, their volatile passage marked by the overpowering stench of torched wood and singed rotting vegetation. Somewhere, within the inky depths of these impregnable elder woods, reality was temporarily broken.. There was no beginning to the breaking, and the small figure that had not been there, simply was there. It was human, and dressed oddly for even these distant and inherently strange lands. The wrathful sky let loose its fury then, heralded by a violent rock shattering crash of thunder rain cascaded down upon the parched landscape with a relentless intensity, permeating every leaf, blade of grass, and light deprived patch of forest floor. The exotically dressed human raised his hands to the heavens, savoring the sensation of the cool rainwater running across his palm and fingertips, intermingling with and washing away the tears streaming down his time creased cheeks and steely beard. The sky grieved, the human wept and for a moment reality was broken.

Page Two - Homeward Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

Three dark cloaked figures sat around a large ornate table, the table its self was constructed from a single slab of green obsidian and runes of power emanated magic from its very core.

�The mage slayer Jodah is lost to us.� Spoke the second figure.

Page Three - Ascension Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

Heynard was ready; over the past weeks he had prepared one of the many magic labs at the castle to �accommodate� the sorcerer Jodah when he arrived. Heynard knew for certain that Jodah would arrive, the loss of several familiars to the insane magi�s magic blasts had brought him the news, he would reach the castle tomorrow morning; Heynard knew that he had to be vigilant for the sake of them all.

Page Six - Illusion Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

Roth stared at the combatants. Both Heynard and Jodah were excellent spell casters and neither of them was going to back down. Roth did not want to lose Heynard he was a close friend although a pompous one. Jodah however had always been loyal to Roth, even though the Amulet had the sorcerer under its control there were spells to counteract its effects they just took time. Two wizards, only one must survive, but which.

Page One - Revival Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

Marius floated over the derelict tomb, he knew of the dark and sinister figure hunched and lurking behind those warded doors, and of their power. He had sought out its hiding place for twenty years and now he had it within his withered grasp, he would make the fools pay for his exile, his humiliation in front of the Halruuan high council, oh they would pay dearly, yes.

Page Four - Wrath Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

Roth twitched an eyebrow and whispered words of enchantment; without realising it Heynard was picked up by invisible hands and thrown across the large obsidian table stopping inches from the elderly and enraged Archmage. �You are out of line second, you know I rule here, you know I am more powerful than you and�� Roth paused for dramatic effect ��and you still continue to irritate me, with your petty problems and the way you waltz around as if you own the place.� Roth said very calmly, through his gritted teeth. �You brought a power crazed, psychotic very adept wizard slayer here! Do you have no brain?�

Page Five - End Game Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

Jodah sat on his throne brooding over the past months events. Of the time he had found Marius, of the duel with the necromancer and the discovery of the amulets power. He thought of his rise to power and of the consequences of that power. He needed a way to control the amulets growth; he had the entire magical staff working in fear on an antidote to the insidious cancer that was the amulet. But the power it fed his feeble frame was intoxicating.

Order of Mithril Warhammers - Lord Simeron Steelhammer (Trial and Triumph) Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

This tome is the story of a dwarf, his life and the Order he has founded. You may or may not know of the Mithril Warhammers but, throughout many lands, their battle cry of �For the Light!� has been and continues to be a welcome sound to the hearts of those evil preys upon and a baneful shriek of destruction to the evil ones themselves. Jerrel Swiftwind, Bard and Scribe to the Elven Lords of the Black Forest, wrote of the Order of the Mithril Warhammers these words:

Order of Mithril Warhammers - A Time of Beginnings Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 4 months ago

As Simeron walked out the door of his small home in Underhill, he could sense something was wrong. He could feel it in his bones and beard. The darkened street was totally empty of life. No beggars or urchins, no travelers, not even a rat was out...except him. He didn't like it at all but, he had a job to do and by Mordain�s hammer, he was going to get it done. So, with a heavy sigh, he hefted his own hammer and shield and walked out of his small house, locking the door behind him. He wished to be with his fellows this night, sitting in front of a warm hearth spinning tales over warm honey mead with a cinnamon stick. It was Magnus that had got him started on that brew on a dare and now, while a good dwarven ale still tasted good, he honestly preferred the mead. He was torn from his musing by something in the back of his head that screamed an alarm. Reacting on pure reflex and instinct, he dropped to one knee and raised his shield in a defensive mode. A loud KLANG resounded off it as he felt a heavy blow strike first the shield, then his door. He turned to see a rather shocked human dressed in black studded leather and wielding a pair of jagged black orc scimitars. He was ugly, even for a human but as Simeron caught his scent all became clearer.

One Great Big Gulp Of Air... Migrate Wizard 2015-09-21 4 years 4 months ago

Each day I leave the house at 7.30am, Sarah standing at the door, arms wrapped around her waist as her small white teeth chew her lower lip in worry. I go to the office, answer the calls, solve the problems and pass the time of day with my co-workers. All of this and I do it well, for they do not know that here, inside myself, I am screaming and calm at the same time. Automated, doing what is expected of me, although it no longer holds any meaning. I am disconnected, and I think I am glad of it. No longer a cog within a great grinding wheel, but an imposter, playing a part, yet waiting for the curtain to drop. Is this better than total ignorance, better than the oblivion of conforming? Am I mad, or are they? Where did I go for that month?

One Day's Work Migrate Wizard 2015-09-26 4 years 4 months ago

As the mist fades from the shore, Tiri-Nuan wakes to another day. The farm carts, awake for hours, slowly creak into the city like a small army of ants. Each cart pulled by an equally lethargic mule or horse. The chill of the sea slowly dissolves with the mist as the day-globe warms the morning with a golden light. As the day grows, the shrill sound of the crier wakes the town, and as with every day, the lone voice takes up the chant of Bula, which marks the beginning of the morning business. All this is so commonplace, that Thorn barely notices it. She has more important thing to do today than to notice the music of the chant or the bustling of the market. Today someone will die.

Omi the Shrimp Migrate Wizard 2015-09-26 4 years 4 months ago

Sit friends, and watch me spin tales of high adventure and glory. I’ve traversed the realms from the marbled palaces of Calimport, felt the wicked gravity of the Zhentil Keep, and lost myself in the winding menagerie of wonder and confusion that is Waterdeep. You might think it horses apples coming from one such as Omi the Shrimp, but I am half-brother to destiny, and, being kin, destiny thrusts the lives of some of the Faerun’s greatest hero into the stable of this humble bard.

Old Blood Rolo Kipp 2013-04-18 6 years 11 months ago

There was a stirring that drew Angkir's eyes toward the door of the chamber. It was not a noise so much as a slight movement of air.

Of Liches and Women ChaosQueen_Kara_8 2015-10-14 4 years 5 months ago

Being a sequel to Of Liches and Madmen by Chaos_Theocrat. Having passed into the dark domains of Ravenloft, the Lich is now faced with a dark new challenge: finding a way to grant his daughter one vital thing she has never had, but has always needed so badly... a mother.

Of Liches and Madmen ChaosQueen_Kara_8 2015-10-14 4 years 5 months ago

Can a lich know the meaning of love and sacrifice? Are the words of a madman to be trusted? In Ravenloft, good and evil are never simple, and the mad can often speak more truth than the sane realize.

NWN2: IGN's Top Module List Berliad 2014-08-05 5 years 4 months ago

The old IGN Vault generated top module ranking lists based on user votes.  While imperfect, the system nevertheless generated a useful ranking of Neverwinter Nights 2 modules wherein the best modules were near the top of the list.  

I pulled that list from archive.org and reproduced it below.  I will also gradually be adding links to these modules over the coming weeks.  For the time being, however, you are encouraged to search for these modules using the Vault's search feature.  You can also find many of them directly linked on the Hall of Fame list.  If a module is not yet available, you can also request that it be uploaded.

I hope this helps!

Project Dialogue Migrate Wizard 2015-11-11 4 years 4 months ago

A few weeks ago, I was trying to think about how the official campaign could have been improved upon, and I realized there's something that has been lost in the evolution of RPG games as far as BioWare handles it. I'm speaking of the dialogue between NPC characters and the more I think about it, the more I'm beginning to dislike the dialogue box. Yes it works very well, and the conversation editor in the toolset makes it really quite easy, but it's the closed system aspect of it that I think bothers me the most. By that I mean, the limited number of choices steering you through a set path.

Players - What Makes Them Tick? Migrate Wizard 2015-11-11 4 years 4 months ago

Everyone loves a good story. It's what great DM's eat for breakfast. The stories we write, in a way, reveal to our audience (ie, our players) who we are and what we stand for in this life. The critical path of great stories is the development of empathy, and understanding, of the story's central participants and their varied circumstances. A good story takes us out of our own lives and puts us in someone elses' lives and allows us to come away with a greater understanding of ourselves in the process. But everyone finds their own meaning differently through the myriad of characters portrayed therein, and not always necessarily from the Protagonist, ie: "good guy." We sometimes like a movie, or a book, because of the bad guy. The bad guy helps us to define more clearly why we--for the most part--continue to stay and be good, for he is one more example of what we must never become. (Or, if you're bad yourself, the bad guy allows you to relate to someone.)

Persistent Misconceptions Migrate Wizard 2015-11-11 4 years 4 months ago

It seems that everybody and their brother has hopped aboard the rabid, bouncing badger of persistent world-creation in order to have their chance at righting all the perceived wrongs of games such as Asheron's Call, Everquest, Dark Age of Camelot and Ultima Online. What I keep hearing from these worlds is that although they plan to throw in a few modules, most are going to be carbon copies of the above MMORPGs, standing out only because they are following a different ruleset..

NWN Economies Migrate Wizard 2015-11-11 4 years 4 months ago

One of my particular concerns in persistent world gaming is economics. Most games of the ilk have trade skills and a monetary system coupled with the sale and purchase of items with scripted game characters (vendors and store keeps). All these systems share something in common with the failed systems of collectivist economies like Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany, to whit; they are centrally directed and controlled.
