You are the Hero of the Neverwinter Nights Official Campaign. After your triumph over Morag and the Source Stones, you are cheered and saluted everywhere you go. Now, however, a new adventure awaits you in the roads ahead... Following the climatic events at the end of 'The Fall of a Champion', Faerun has been plunged into turmoil. Quick to announce your death at her hands, the Dragon of Mystery has assembled her Dark Armies to conquer the principle city of Beraal. Their path to victory seems clear for if even the fabled Hero of Neverwinter has fallen, who would dare challenge her might? In 'The Legend of a Champion', the stirring conclusion to the Hero of Neverwinter Saga, the fate of Faerun hangs in the balance amid the spectre of impending doom. The Hero of Neverwinter must again overcome impossible odds and rise to face the might and terror of the Dragon of Mystery and her legions of Dark Armies. A new legend will be forged right here...

After finishing the trilogy, I'm going to say it's good but not great. Decent story and pacing but some fights were just ridiculous plus the whole "respawn with no penalty" made the bigger fights an exercise in whittling down the other guy while dying over and over again.

I can't believe I'm the most current post here. Good series (I haven't tried the '4th' one yet. Actually if you take the 'Good' ending and you haven't yet played the SoU or HotU campaigns, then you will wonder who a few characters are.

When I saw Deekin approach me, I actually shouted "DEEKIN!!!" cause I love his character. Always makes me laugh.

It would have been nice to have a store in the City to buy/sell stuff in case you brought over a lot of items from your other characters. If you were out of full Heal potions, you'd spend a lot of time respawning (luckily I had about 40 on hand).

The only problem I had was the final battle. Could have left off 2 enemies as it was a little crowded in the battle I never knew who my fighter was hitting (even thought I kept telling him to hit the Lord of Faerun. Something in the Bioware AI keeps re-directing who my PC goes after from time to time and it's really ticking me off.

Thanks TheHoly1! I'm glad you enjoyed it!:D

Love the series. Would love to see more on them or another from this author. I give it a 10!

Posted by TheHoly1 ( ) at 2006-01-22 19:12:53    
Thanks, Yes it does. I knew there was a pattern, but just couldn't figure it out. I tried an X and O (from the notes) but none worked.

Btw... Love the modules. Hope you write some more. I will play them. I will be sure to vote on it.

This is the final puzzle. Once you get to the last level, go straight over the bridge till the checker boards on the floor. You will notice that one of the boxes will light up when you walk over it. The correct combination steps will unlock the portal. Here is the solution:

[5] [ ] [4] [ ]

[ ] [3] [ ] [ ]

[1] [ ] [2] [ ]

[ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]

from the bridge

The sequence forms the number '3', which is "Part 3" ;)

1 is the first box which will light up. You need to move from boxes 1 to 5 n that sequence. If not, the puzzle will reset itself and you have to start over. Hope this helps!

I am stuck. I broke all the mirrors, got the portal, and teleported to the long segment with the portal on one end and the "chessboard" on the other. Once I get there, nothing happens. I assume that you need to hit spots on the chessboard to progress, as I hit one of the spots and something happens. Is there a specific pattern you have to do?

I keep getting crashes during area transitions. For example, when getting out onto the deck of The Avenger. Also, I had to stop the game when I couldn't get into the Castle from the City under siege. It kept crashing when I tried to enter!

I made it... I used a cheat to teleport me to the next platform, as if the portal had appeared :P

Thanks anyway!

Posted by Sethief ( ) at 2005-06-03 13:46:58    
Is there any "cheat" to skip that part and get to the next one? It could be nice to "summon" the portal or something :P

Posted by YLWong ( ) at 2005-06-03 02:20:48    
I counted 6 mirrors... You could have seen a very unique bug or rather specific one, since so far all the others have managed to beat that area...bad....:(

Posted by Sethief ( ) at 2005-06-03 01:46:54    
I did so, but there's nothing else in that "cross" that I can smash. I guess the portal should appear in the square located at the west zone, but it doesn't. Maybe I found some kind of bug :P

Posted by YLWong ( ) at 2005-06-01 23:34:06    
If I am not mistaken, there are 3 mirrors on each wing of the 'cross'. I think there are mirrors on the north, south and east wing. The portal will appear on the west wing. Try it again. P.S. I could be has been a long time. I'll try and check it when i get back home.

Posted by Sethief ( ) at 2005-05-31 23:03:07    
No... am I missing something? I'm pretty sure I smashed them all, at least I can't see no more mirrors there...

Posted by YLWong ( ) at 2005-05-31 18:17:26    
There should be a portal which appears after you smashed ALL the mirrors. I think it is in the west wing of the 'cross'... try it;)

Posted by Sethief ( ) at 2005-05-29 12:39:41    
I smashed all the mirrors, but there's no way out of that place... :(

Which brings me to this announcement: I have finished the remaking of "Fall of a Champion"! Check it out! Here's a synopsis, in case it's not out in the vault yet:


You are the Hero of the Neverwinter Nights Official Campaign, a legend amongst legends... Now, a new adventure awaits you in the roads ahead...

In 'The Fall of a Champion', rumours of a new Tower of Doom sets you off to Beraal, a bustling city in southern Faerun. What sinister evil awaits you there?

"Venture into the Underdark!": The new theme of the 'The Fall of a Champion' brings the Hero of Neverwinter to an adventure down into the depths of the notorious Underdark! The entire module has been remade to present a totally new story and experience! More cutscenes, more party conversations, more adventuring and more battles! Plus, there is even a new henchman to tag along!

"Of Mellow Hearts and Sailed Ships": The story of the Hero of Neverwinter is extended in this new optional quest, "Of Mellow Hearts and Sailed Ships", a tragic tale of love and hate in a town near the capital city of Beraal. Your decisions will change lives!


Hope you will try it out!

Posted by WongYewLeong at 2005-04-01 19:34:00    
Thanks for the suggestion, afscorpio123. I'll try and see whether to modify the dragon's stats. By the way, glad you enjoyed this series!

Posted by afscorpio123 ( ) at 2005-03-30 12:45:00    
Just finished your series and overall I thought it was good. Some parts were much easier than others. I thing you might want to check:

When I fought the dragon I was able to get a rather cheap victory. i used Black blade of disaster and the dragon failed his save( rolled a 1) and instantly died after doing minimal damage. The dragon should probably be immune to such things but not sure if you noticed this problem. Thanks for a good series.


Posted by WongYewLeong at 2005-03-05 18:07:00    
Thanks for the comments... I can understand ur frustration...It was very hard to balance up the difficulty when i was creating this mod.. Since I have not much DnD core rules basics (I've just bought the core ruleset and trying to learn it now..)

what I did was to try out the fights with all the different pre-generated classes...what I realized was that certain classes had a much tougher time against one foe than the other classes. At times, it was really frustrating as the character hardly does any damage against the foe, and gets killed way to easily... Some classes, however, just cruise through the fight without breaking a sweat!

One way I tried to balance this is by giving the player lots and lots of booster equipment (especially for the final fight). As for the guy in the castle, if you explored the area before confronting him, you would find 2 boosters at either side of the hall. One is a statue which heals you up, the other is a mirror which increases your abilities. I hoped that these two boosters would even up the battle a bit... It will still be a tough fight, no doubt, because Jian Wang is a master swordsman after all.. and the prize from defeating him is the all powerful Amulet of Faerun, also another tool designed to help out in battles...

Throw me a vote if you're free..Thanks!

An overall nice hackn'n'slash module to play on; good design, nice ending for the good alignement, some challenging fights...

Something annoyed me, tough, the npcs with d-crit like 38 dc when my fort save was 16... it was the blackguard I think, and that evil guy in the castle. This last one really pissed me off. I played a monk, and since he had 100 % bludgeoning resistance, I could only dammage him with my gloves 1d6 sonic dammage and I had to respawn like 10 times to beat him. It was silly. And the last fight wasnt anything of a challenge, since the lord of faerun kept casting spells over and over, that my SR stopped until he was killed. But I guess this kind of thing is hard to fix.

My advice is not yours ! The XP gained is really too high and I think it is stolen ! My Epic Ranger takes 2 levels for a play of 2 hours max. It is up too high.
The rewards for the quests are already important. So the kills don't need to give so many XP.

Lord Nikinas is a true hero, he takes the Good option ;)

Posted by WongYewLeong at 2005-01-08 06:19:00    
Thanks for telling me about the XP Scale! I felt that the PC deserves extra XP for some of the hard-fought battles. Yes, it may seem high, but i think you guys deserve it!

The alternate ending can be accessed when you are given the option to choose your stance against the Lord of Faerun. If you choose to leave (Neutral ending), the Good cutcene will be played. If you choose to be defeat evil from Faerun, you will see the Good ending too, only it is slightly different than the Neutral one (watch what Isendur says to you in the cutscene). If you choose to be a God, you will see the Evil ending, which is totally different! Which have you seen?


Hear from you soon! Thanks again :)
