This is the active and updating "my modules list" post!!!

 

 

My Modules list (constantly updating)

... An old habit of mine from my beloved NWN1 forumer experience...

'keeping in mind I found myself over my gaming years only caring about unusual, arty, surprising, conceptual, abstract, minimalist, minded modules, in other words not strictly boring "hack & slash / one map after another / all the same forever" kind of games, here are the few I recently played, and I played only a very few, and only the ones I loved:

 

  • Claudius33's tetralogy: A Slave Destiny + 16 Cygni + Sarmates! + AI Andalus (Creation, and probably love order) by Claudius33: An absolute chock x4. And now, I played them all. My personal favorites. The most amazing stories ever. The most amazing historical sources ever even. The most amazing ... ever. The most amazing ... ever. & the most amazing ... ever. Sorry for that but you'd understand I can't spoil any more than I already did. It's also the longest module I (ever?) played, and the only one that never bored me at some point. I won't say no more, but play it. 
  • Misery Stone: Simply beautiful (I don't know which came first of this one or Skyrim but they surely look alike) and smartly unusual. 
  • Dark Waters (full): Greatest gameplay. Strategical, inventive, surprising, a few puzlles... but easily doable for I so hate puzzles myself but went through all of them as they're very well written by an author being always on the player's side. I only played the fist part, Highcastle, so far... but already with great pleasure. And I almost forgot: funny, very, very fine words, even if anything in english sounds funny to me already...
  • Conan Chronicles 1 - The Barbarian Chronicles : Great story well served by an imaginative and surprising gameplay, still very roleplaying with many choices and outcomes. Very thrilling. Only one complain: the arena fighting, for fighting only beasts mostly and only a couple of gladiators, not even the top ones. There is also a Conan Chronicles 2 - The Zamorian Chronicles... just to be mentionned.
  • The Subtlety of Thay: Well, I still don't know what to think about this one. Long story, very buggy near its end, classical but with some great moments. Sadly unfinished...
  • *** A very special mention to my beloved character creator: FRW Character Creator. I've always loved those, sometimes more than modules themselves. 
  • ... work in progress...

 

Your modules suggestions, the ones I have yet to play:

 

Salut!

I find that the great modules in NWN2 are the shorter ones, there are great "adventure"-mods like "Night howls in Nestlehaven" or "the black scourge of Candle Cove".The "Path of evil" Campaign is pretty vast and impressing, too.Most similiar to epic length campaigns with story and such is propably "The subtlety of Thay".Chapter 2 is an all in one download.I did not yet play "the wizard's apprentice" and the works of Claudius33 are pretty well received(Al Andalus, 16 Cygni).

Have fun ;)

You should try out modules by Azenn - Live Forever and Asphyxia

Live Forever, if you are fine with a linear story-driven adventure, but with mind-blowing twists and unique boss fights. 

Asphyxia if you want a Icewind Dale styled vide and adventure. In my opinion, it's story and companions are really interesting!

Overall, they have good narrative, gameplay, companions and a nice level of polish to them, are must-plays in my book.

Are you kidding? I love linear story-driven adventure as you put it. I don't mind being driven as long as the road is amazing, and the driver better than I actually. I kind of like it even more that linear way, like with a book or a movie, than having to look through the journal every minute, 'not even wanna mention being forced to read a walkthrough as the worst case scenario... I like simple for having a simple, and single, brain. 

And using the mind-blowing twists keyword was even more appealing... I believe gaming is all about surprises to me. The Woah! thing, you know, and even better, when you can't even talk at all, but smile...

So, Live Forever and Asphyxia just went on my to-do search list then, and merci very beaucoup

I came around a misery stone module which smells like my type of food as well. 

I'm afraid I might stick around NWN2 for a while...

I recomend Misery Stone, yes. I'm surprised nobody mentioned it. It is extremely proffesional made. And please do stick around :). There are so many good modules created from the community. I'm certain you will enjoy playing them.

 

Edit: I also recommend the Darkening Sky prologue from ColorsFade. If you don't mind waiting for the next chapters the work is exceptional. He is often on hiatus but still active and I believe the whole campaign will be finished sooner or later. The module is basically like the OC in scope and for me this is something I love seeing from the community.

Merci very much for the infos.

I suggest my King's Festival + Queen's Harvest campaign.  It is a conversion from an original D&D module.  It is the only campaign of my own that I actually completed (not including my Silverwand Sample Campaign which is more of a training campaign for modders.)

Hi Brendan Kaldor Silverwand Bellina,

being here because of you, I'll make sure I play your piece with the upmost recpect... and fun. You have no idea what great gift that was to grand me access to the console, just because you thought of the possibilities when I didn't... enlightened

Now, my very sensitive 10 years NWN player's nose brought me already to the exact kind of module I cherish above all: simple, enhanced & personnalized gameplay system, written, arty, booky, movy, minimalist for being full of atmosphère and vibes enough on its own, true and beautiful minded companions: 

Misery Stone

And I just found out that amazing rogue henchwoman... hanchewoman would be a more appropriate word... speaks french! How's that Ravenloft's girls speak french nowadays? I'm moving there right now... 

Thanks to the community, like always. I'm so glad I came back here after so much suffering trying but failing to enjoy any of those boring brand new RPGs pretending to recreat the Baldur's Gate's spirit. 

We are the best, especially you...

Only one complain: the arena fighting, for fighting only bestas mostly and only a couple of gladiators, not even the top ones. 
  • Conan Chronicles 2 - The Zamorian Chronicles: That Tower of the Elephant inner module seems beautiful, but I wasn't interested by any thief or temple story around Conan, and the Temple area seemed very bugged to me, as the game froze while trying tyo enter a few temples. The first part was playable, but not my cup of tea...

 

I wouldn't call those particular modules easy to play, and not only for beginners, as they would need some polishing and a very little debuggin, but if you let yourself go in it, you should get through quite easily. When I didn't understand something (heavy reading ahead, you've been warned...), I just forgot about it until it solved by itself. 

I can't wait to find the time playing all those other modules you guys proposed here... 

Game on.

I'm currently playing the chapter II of Dark Waters and I can't barely ever stop laughing. That game is immense, so smart, nothing looks the same, jumping from one surprise into another , never getting bored. Unbelievable... 

How come I never knew of it before today...

The author needs to spend some time polishing Path of Evil. It's pretty wonky in spots.

You're very right, those are great modules. 
That list is only and shamefully nothing but a personal one, with everyone's suggestion. 
And either I didn't play those two you're talking about yet, or I didn't like them. 

And I only talk about what I like.

I definitly should try Baldur's Gate Reloaded some day...

You have no idea how much I owe you, not only for the MAC wrapper which keeps me playing that greatest game, but for your upmost amazing Verge of Morpheus, one magical rod I use all the time to make some great but sometimes heavy modules a bit lighter on my dedicated NWN2 player's shoulders...

- Added A Slave Destiny I just finished playing, by Claudius33heartheartheartheartheart

(Unfortunately, the only one module from Claudius33's tetralogy which comes in french only. The journal being in english might help playing it...)

Perhaps a little late with my suggestions for modules you might want to play, but here I go.

There are a few modules I like to replay every now and then. They are from Tsongo: The first one is 'Serene', the second one is 'A Fairy Tale' and the third one is 'Bad Habits'. The last one you can download from Nexusmods the other two you can find here.

They are quite linear but with good and long stories and unique and lovable characters. You can play either male or female characters and the reactions of the NPCs and companions are different on the gender you chose. Sometimes there might be spelling and grammar errors, but for me, those are only minor issues.

I hope, I could help you a little bit with your search for new modules smiley.

Late isn't a matter while never would be.

Thanks for the gifts. This list is a sort of NWN2's list from our heart, and your modules belong with it. And spelling issues only make my own frenchglish feels prouder...

Actually, I should extend my own selfish list with yours... (working on it)

If you do decide to play Path of Evil, I am working on a "remastered" version while people test Bedine, and there are plenty of other things in your list already, so my campaign can wait.

Elfen Lied

In addition to all the great modules that other players have already suggested, I highly reccomend you to play the beautiful saga Tales from the Lake of Sorrows which was originally composed by 6 separated modules and lately revamped as a single epic adventure.

Another must play imho is The Maimed God's Saga.

Aside from these two you and other players have already listed my favourite modules, like the ones from Claudius33 and Tsongo.

But there are many other modules that I have not played yet, therefore maybe I could share others. For example I am going to start Islander - The Dagger Forged now and I have heard that it's also a very beautiful one.  I'll keep you up to date. :)

I just finished to play the full Claudius33's tetralogy and all I wanted to say is how sorry I feel for it's over.

Those 4 modules are probably the longest modules I ever played in my spoiled gamer's life, and yet, while I'm always kind of happy to finish even a cherished module 'cause a brain's got to go on, it didn't happen with Claudius33's jewels. To make it simple, I wish they would never finish... 

Those are pieces of art to my heart.

But I heard from a bird he is working on a new one. The kind of guy who never gives up, when so many others should... 

Thank you, master Claudius.

*** A very special mention to my beloved character creator: FRW Character Creator. I've always loved those, sometimes more than modules themselves.

By the way, inside that very module, a great choice of modules will be, funnily, offered to you, modules I never heard of before, and they all sound great. Call it a feeling...

Elfen Lied

OK now I can 100% confirm that Islander - the Dagger Forged is another module that you should add to your list.

And before I forget again you should as well add the Danaan saga which is composed by two modules, The Last of the Danaan/The Danaan Unvanquished. These are quite different from the modules that I usually like, which are linear and strongly plot-driven, but nevertheless they are really amazing.

And why I am at this, I suppose it's time that I go to vote every module I played, so that I can share my thoughts about them.

I have another one for you: Fate of a City:  it's a great city adventure with a lot of RPG options that provide a high replayability. The story is very solid and the custom content is impressive. Moreover, it's the most polished module I have ever played.

@jmlzemaggo

You definitely must try The Maimed God's Saga, it has the best writings you ever gonna get. The world is built with big attention to details, giving you some amount of realism, i'd say. Only that god damn door - puzzle, if u haven't done it yet, then don't do it, its optional side quest and is really not worth it ;p

 

Now i'm playing Asphyxia, i must say it's nice but unfortunately, after the mod mentioned above, nothing gonna be good enough.

sry for my english.

'Fate of a city' added and The Maimed God's Saga moved in my agenda. 

I understand the feeling about 'Asphyxia', the latest mod I quit playing to take a break: great mods could make a player's life very difficult to enjoy good mods. And I'm having difficulties playing mods at the moment, after too much of a loving for a few masterpieces I fortunatelly bumped into. I guess my quest for NWN2 jewels went to well... 

And sorry for my frenchglish as swell... devil heart

I think you would like The Wizard's Apprentice. I am into Chapter 2 of it already and am hooked. IF you get stuck, I have a LP of Chapters 1 and 2 on youtube (just search for "The Wizard's Apprentice", NWN2, and brothermutant on Youtube and you should find them). I wouldn't watch them if you don't want to be spoiled, but there are several tough spots that could hang you up, especially if your spellbook is subpar (or you went Bard, the modder says you can but Chapter 1 was hell on my try using a Bard, and that's WITH me already beating Chapter 1 before with a Wizard). Hope you find a good one to play, and if you do, make sure to tell us here which you picked.

How is The Scroll? Long I hope. I was planning on doing a LP of it next (if not it, then The Maimed God's Saga, which I loved even though I didn't play more than an hour into it).
