Description
"This is a tale of three mercenaries embarked on a dangerous journey. Intrigues, jeopardizes and conspiracies await them But only the hidden world of Underdark can provide the sojourn for the ones cast out by their own people."

Character Requirements: Male
This mod has a very long and complicated history. At first we decided to make a full-scale NWN1 module but due to some major problems previous team was disbanded. Almost two years later project was revived and it development continued on NWN2 toolset. Using the old content we made this small demo which will be included in the final release as a prologue. Most of the team are Russian-speaking people so please mind that this module is a translation from Russian. If you notice any mistakes or untranslated text Ė be sure to report it. The file consists of a module itself and a small hack-pack with a few custom models, textures and portraits. We used a couple of portraits from the Vault, but the images of the two plot-characters were created exclusively for this demo. Anyway the refantasy team and I thank you for paying attention to our work. We know that itís only a mere trifle comprising to great modules ranked in TOP 15, but we worked very hard to create and translate it into English. If you are interested in details and progress of creating the full version Ė please visit my website (http://www.refantasy.com/drow/project_eng.html).

Interesting (but short) story, nice NPCs but too difficult.

May be easier with a fighter, it was simply unplayable with a fresh sorcerer with no equipment (and not a single scroll in the entire module).

A lvl 1 sorcerer simply cannot sneak around. A rogue could try or a lucky fighter. Too many creatures to face at a time.

The module did not include a drow as subrace. Why not?

3-4: It is clear the author tried to make something interesting, but still fell short. With more work it might be worth the download.

I played this a long time ago and forgot to vote. I enjoyed the storyline, the interaction between the character and NPCs; disappointed that the full version is going NWN2 and not NWN1 (as I've said on other threads, I just cannot get myself into the NWN2). Loads of fun!

Alright. I'll definitely find the module once it hits the "New Modules" page. :) Will probably hit your website every once in a while.

Until then,
Libita

That's a hard question. We were starting this mod about 2-3 years after the release date of NWN1 (when both expansions already were released). And now I already have almost all of the story and dialogues, and we already imported most of the scripts from demo-module.

Yet there are certain problems with creating new locations and interiors due to lack of content. I think it will be about 1-1.5 year to finish and test it all if all of the team will have enough time and if it won't collapse... again :)

Posted by Libita at 2007-02-19 04:15:09    
Alright. Found and checked it. :)
As I will do with the finished version. Do you have any rough ideas as to how long it will take until the project goes up (a couple years, I assume)?

Well I added the link. There could be some troubles due to the unstable state of the host but most of the time it's working fine -_^

I don't know about others, but I don't look at it that way. And you already have the comment in the description saying "please visit my website", so I don't think it would hurt to implement the link as well.

Maybe I should, but as far as I know such things are often treated like a cheap way of promoting oneís web. If putting a links in descriptions or comments are common if Vault Ė Iíll certainly add it.

Posted by Libita at 2007-02-05 07:33:27    
You're referring to a website in your description. I found the link relatively easy through searching through the author description - but I would suggest putting the link up directly on this page.

Very good, even if short, although i did sport a few minor areas which were still in Russian, namely a few item names and i recall it once briefly in the first conversation the PC has with NPCís.

Posted by Mauru at 2007-02-02 11:50:01    Voted 10.00 on 02/02/07
I played the Russian version of this mod. Although. I havenít tried English-version yet. I know that this author wonít allow it to be worse than the original one ^_^

Posted by Rebu at 2007-02-01 12:34:53    
btw I haven't got any troubles with save files yet one of my team member got them. I'm not sure what caused that kind of problems. We'll try to fix it.

Most of the troubles with the mod were about the henchmans and they dialogues. Thanks to the Obsidian and their dialogue system we won't have them anymore in NWN2.

Thanks for your replies&votes!

A short adventure, with interesting characters and a good dialogues.
The drow are always interesting, as long as they are created and presented as something more than simple faceless creatures. Here they are much more than that, although there are only a few of them (including your character).

There are really many problems, but this is an unfinished project, and I will vote accordingly, that is... I will not take notice of some serious issues (such as the corrupt save files). Instead, I will vote for what I see as a fantastic concept, one that I really hope to see fully developed for NWN2... though Elereen will definitely look awful in the new serious (and incredibly boring) armor sets... hopefully a hak will deal with this.
Go on and finish the NWN2 version, please...!

Bad language, alcohol, violence. Iím not really sure if I picked the rating right. Maybe itís not that ďmatureĒ. :) Anyway I certainly didn't intended the module to be played by children.

>> You mean "authorS", right? :)
No, author. I mean the team leader.

>> Why is the content rating mature?
Not sure about an English version, but there was quite a lot of foul language in Russian. Though... possibly, it's creators didn't intend the module to be played by children?

Short but fun. I really look forward to the full mod in NWN2.



Keep up the good work!
