Theme Descriptions

Dinosaurs!: Dinosaurs of all types (maybe even completely original fantasy Dinosaurs), plus other prehistoric reptiles (pterosaurs, mosasaurs, pelycosaurs, etc), prehistoric fish (Dinicthys and other placoderms), extinct invertebrates (Eurypterids, etc), and even extinct mammals - imagine an Andrewsarchus roaming the streets of Neverwinter!
{ Suggested by: PLUSH HYENA of DOOM }

Not Just Walking XP: Make goblins more interesting than just two-dimensional walking XP for many low level PCs. They should have goblin-made lairs (placeables, tiles), they should have goblin-made/found weapons, armor, treasure (item models or prefabs), they should use devious traps (scripts), they should use underhanded tactics (ai scripts, encounters, etc.), they should have interesting pets (prefabs, models), they should have better quests for them (beyond "bring back 10 goblin ears"), and they should have more personality (conversations, one-liners, etc.). Goblins also have ancestral enemies (such as ugly, hairy, grumpy dwarves) that might have spells/items that target goblins. Kobolds should also be included in this theme.

Machines: Any crazy contraptions, gizmos, doodads that might be useful for something. I know those gnomes have created more than just a "gnomish contraption" since NWN came out. Things like: Mechanical horse, Wagon car, and an elevator that would fit nicely into some of the small interior rooms.

Gnome Stuff: Gnome body knows the trouble's I've seen.... Gnome body knows the sorrows.... How about some gnome stuff? We've had elves, halflings, and half orcs. Might be nice to give some love to the lil popeye-armed, big-nosed tinkerers and pranksters.

Make Them Feel Special: New items, feats, and more for characters with different prestige classes. Maybe create new prestige classes.
{ Suggested by modderpunk }

Golems: NWN already had loads of golems. Some better (all Project Q ones), some Worse (Default Flesh Golems), but hey... constructs are pretty cool type of mobs, in my opinion and such theme would give the creators pretty wide range to choose with, eg. Inevitables from Planescape (we already have Marut) or Sand Golems, or some crazy Arcane Constructs from WoW... or something entirely different.

The Bureaucracy Strikes Back: Piles of forms placeables. Filing cabinets. Giant "SIGN HERE PLEASE" paper monster. Dreary-droopy humanoid creatures that slowly shuffle about when they walk. Coffee maker and mugs-with-funny-labels placeables. Formal suits and blazers. Striped pants. Pencil skirts. Courtroom clothes and placeables - fantasy/medieval and modern alike. A mad NPC that cowers in a corner and spouts one-liners about how "this is not the correct form!!" until it eventually commits suicide if you keep trying to talk to it. A secretary who'll take dictation and write what the player says to them into an item description. More books and folders placeables - there is no such thing as "enough books placeables", ever. A giant pencil monster. A giant eraser monster. In general, giant writing utensils. Perhaps letter-monsters - have the words "TAXES ARE DUE" or "YOU SHOULD BE WORKING RIGHT NOW" chase the player around and murder them.
