FEATURES:

*Mysterious & interesting story-line!

*Thick atmosphere! Areas are made so that it really feels like you're playing during a storm.

*Many interesting characters!

*Quite a few homorous conversations as well as quite a few serious ones.

*A story about a prophecy, an ancient evil and a Chosen One.

*A Mirror of Transportation (similar to the Teleport Stone used in the Official Campain) is used!

This is an adventure for 1st level characters with either the classes of Fighter, Barbarian or Paladin. It is the prequel to

Hey Berra,

Finally got around to playing... ermmm, replaying CbtS and found it well done. I actually enjoyed playing this time around though I DID find some of the puzzles a bit on the odd side. Nevertheless, I still managed to bang through it right to the end.

The only thing I would suggest is that you have a look at the scripts for the henchmen. I had a horrid time in getting tow of them to keep up with me never mind following. All-in-all not bad.

This module was fun and held my interest. Playing as a paladin seemed to be a good fit with the story, as suggested. What heroic holy warrior could resist a fight against evil?

SPOILERS---

Most of the battles were easy enough except for Evannia. It took a bit of work to take her out, but a tough battle makes success more satisfying.
The healing and experience statues were a nice touch.

*Astero,

Thanks for the vote and the comment! Yeah, my first mod has indeed become a bit old now ... about 3 & 1/2 year actually. :D

I'm glad that you seemed to have enjoyed yourself nevertheless.

I'm not going to say much as this is your first module. For me it's a decent enough effort. As the story progresses it becomes more interesting. The only minor problem I remember encountering was when I rescued the villagers, they didn't move although they asked me to follow them.

But other wisw - FcKN great!!

Well I didn't enjoy that much the mindless hack n slash (and 1000's of lootable placeables). But I like your modules in general... they all have great energy, a lot of work put into it... and spelling mistakes. Naaa it's ok, i'm a francophone so...

Also I'm fighting the urge to inflate my vote to make up for the idiot who only votes 1 or 10.

Posted by micon at 2007-10-28 01:00:19    Voted 9.25 on 10/28/07
I just ran into a problem . I threw the gadget down the hellhole and it sealed it up but I think that a new redlight "portal" should have opened here? cause I cannot progress any further and there are no more doors or demons and I have looked allover.
so far enjoyed and don't concern yourself with tactless remarks about spelling. Thats a criticism that is uncalled for in light of an excellent module.

Hello Berra,

I voted this as a 9.00 as it is a combined score
got both chapters.
As I see it as one mod split into 2 chapters rather
than 2 separate Mods.
Thank you for taking your own personal time to make
this series for us...
As with/out you mod builders what are us NWN Fans to do?

Have a Great Day...
Shadow...

Thank you for your commments. I'll keep them in mind. At least the spelling errors has been a lot worse, so it's at least better now which is always a good thing. :) Thanks for playing.

While th eunderlying story was nice, the module has spelling and grammer issues that are distracting. The NPC's are shallow, no character development to speak of. Tower levels are repetative - meet a bad guy, who then dissappears, find him/her again after clearing level, get key, move up. Repeat 5 times. There are also some issues with the reasoning/logic of the mod. For example, **Spoilers**


one NPC is frantic about his lost brother. It turns out he is just next door, a few paces away. Although he could not find the brother, he knew instantly that the brother had been found and sent home. How did he know? Later the PC is told that everyone in the village knows of him, yet if everyone is stuck indoors and can't get out because of the storm, how did they get that info? Doesn't make sense.

The Mother part was very odd. No explaination of why she was there, or how she got there. No follow up afterwards to make sure she was ok.

Overall the mod was enjoyable. A bit of work on the writing would make it much better.

Erik/Berra possible spoilers


I finished "Calm before the Storm"

1) spelling errors are a lot less, I assume this is due to your revised version. I realize your from Sweden and some dialog and grammer is very different in translation. So I over look this a lot. I feel having made such a huge effort using a second language to begin with is just awesome.

1) text was interesting and pretty good. The choices were very driven and few of them.

1) the story itself was very good. Imaginetive and creative stearing away from the same ole stuff.

The NPC's hmmm, my henchman was kind of boring. The other NPC's had no true identities it seemed. I think they could have more personality and more depth.

The atmosphere was a bit small scaled, however it worked in places.


Lets talk about level 3. Ugg! Tedious to say the least. I think I got carpol tunnel from it. I do not want to give to much away. It would be a spoiler.

(Hints and tips) Through out the main quest. I think it could have used more strategy and less direct pointing out the path. I think items and or areas could have been laid out a bit better. To give direction rather than always having little notes to point them out. I can understand where things like this can be taxing with time and methods for the masses to understand though.

The ending. I've seen worse and better. It was ok. No real "wow" factor. The ending was also pretty predictable.

I've started the next of the series. I'll vote on that when I'm done :)

Thank you for your hard work. For a first mod, it was enjoyable.



Regards
Liso :)

Erik!! NOOOOOO!! Game Stopper. Spoilers



I'm on the 5th floor of the tower. I cleared out the zombies and skellies. I made my way around to the statue and I have no where else to go? The door going up is locked. I searched every remains, there are no chest to get into. HELP!!!! hehe So did I miss something? I even refered to the walk through which said the enterance is next to the statue? ermmm, there is nothing there but a statue. And it tells me to either leave or use it. Well I saw what's his name is still there and then nothing else. So I thought ok, maybe a secret door? nothing popped up even in detect mode. So I am at a stand still. I saved the game and closed it. pretty please help!!


btw, I like the mod thus far. I'll tell you more of what I think when I vote :)

Okay so I found another of your mods. It seems the votes climb up better as you updated. I'll have to say I like your quirky humor and I'm going to play this and your sequel. Spelling a aside. I'm getting used to decoding it :p lol

overall a fun module, few minor areas that were repetive. Good module for a first try. going to try the next chap as well.

Flawed but solid for first mod.

Combat is too easy (played level 1 paladin).
I like exp. statues though; great idea for light, hack & slash mod.

But maze level is utter rubbish.
That attrocity cannot be forgiven even for begginer mod.

Fortunately it is just one area. Rest is decent enough.
