Devs Needed for NWN2 PW Relaunch

Hello Vaulters;

I'm the new administrator of a NWN2 Persistant World called Dalelands Beyond.  While several years ago our server was one of the top 3 in terms of player numbers, it's declined drastically since then due to a few reasons, one of them being a lack of server development and regular updates.  We have over 80 players in our discord chat and growing, so we know there is still a lot of interest in the server, and while we've largely been able to address the bad PR issues our server has had and have received the goodwill of many former players, the development issue is ongoing.  To address this, another server's admin suggested I try reaching out to vault regulars.

We have a plan in place to appeal to the NWN2 community which includes a relaunch, a complete rebranding, and an all-encompassing server plot.  Unfortunately, it seems that we are stuck in a vicous cycle: players are reluctant to play without seeing changes, and skilled developers are reluctant to invest time developing something with few players.  Hopefully someone from outside this cycle is willing to step in and volunteer their time and effort.

Our development priorities are as follows:

  1. Develop and update server content (primarily areas) to support the advancement of the new server plot.
  2. Ongoing Quality of Life fixes, such as broken scripts and other fixes.
  3. Continuously provide new content and alter existing content in a way that brings the server closer to the setting described in lore.

About our server:

  • Based in the lands between Shadowdale and Myth Drannor.
  • Originally based on the pen & paper campaign Shadowdale: The Scouring of the Land
  • Factional conflict plays a large part of the new server plot, centreing on that between the Cormanthor (Surface) Drow and the Elves of Myth Drannor, whereas the focus used to be on the Zhentarim occupation of Shadowdale, which has since been liberated.
    • Diplomacy, intrigue, and the making of allies and enemies will play a larger role than PvP.
  • We will be launching a new forum to replace our existing cluttered one, and a new wikia to support it.

If anyone is interested in helping us out, please contact me here or on discord username "Starscream's Revenge#3644".  Thank you and happy gaming.
