I'm working on an expansion pack/mega update. It will include a new province, Vark, with a new storyline, new places, new people, and enemies. In the beginning of the game, instead of appearing at the jail, you will appear in a room with three portals. The middle portal will lead you to the Balharra province. The far left portal will lead you to the Vark province. The one to the right will lead you nowhere...yet...

I wasn't going to vote as I was hoping it was going to be worked on more. As it is it's a "reasonable first effort".

I've played the game with a wiz level 3. At the beginning, in prison, having all my equipment on me, which I shouldn't, I went near the cell door and tried to talk to the guard but he turned hostile on me. I reloaded and managed to get out.

Needless to say, it was quite difficult cause I couldn't rest except only inside my house. Without having a henchman and needing rest often, things were hard for my wiz. Going back and forth to rest in my house was meaningless cause of the repetitive encounters. Maybe you could create a resting area. It's really necessary for the magic users.

The bodak camp in town was just there, in a corner with a sign saying "danger" in front of it and people were just getting on with their lives like it didn't matter. It was weird. I didn't see any shop selling items for magic users. I've bought a house but when I wanted to get out I couldn't. I had to use a console command. Also, the name of the commander and what he represents inside a parenthesis was a bit odd.

Mostly running, I've managed to get inside Cyph's hideout. Again no resting. I had to cheat cause I wanted to see how it ends. I collected his amulet but the man who told me about Cyph (I don't remember his name) wouldn't recognize that I've killed him
and he kept saying that I should gear up.

I think the way you've created this module, should probably be played multiplayer or maybe singleplayer but with a fighter type of char, unless, you make some changes. The story was ok but a little flat. The area maps were more like mini arenas. Also, it's a little tiresome to fill a town with guards and people that talk to you and you can ask them the same things over and over again. I think that the main plot isn't bad but you need to present it better. Work more on the details. I understand it's your first module and you are more on the process of learning. It was a decent effort :)

OOPS! That was an NWN 2 script!

I suppose there are NWN 1 scripts that do the same thing. ^ ^;

Darn! Stupid keyboard! It should say Thief.

"A stealthy theif?"
Oh yes, that's not how you spell thief. ;-)

That's a good idea. I haven't tested it with a mage at all, really. But I have tested it with a rogue and he had a hard time with the bandits. So Everyone, I recommend that any class other than Fighter should start at level 2 or 3.

"No, the levels do not scale. 10 is just the maximum. While playing, you will most likely only make it to about level 6 to 7."

Then you should mention a suggested _starting_ level. (And preferably test on that level).

Fighters are much better at hack-n-slash than other classes (makes NWN rather unbalanced) so you can probably recommend one level higher for rogue/mage types who generally have a hard time.

No, the levels do not scale. 10 is just the maximum. While playing, you will most likely only make it to about level 6 ot 7.
And for the other things, I am not experienced enough to include all those features yet. This is my first module and I am still learning new things about the toolset every day. Once I learn more, I'll fix these issues. Thank you for testing my module so thoroughly! I am looking forward to your future reviews!

Waking up in jail and having 25 gold just lying on the floor is odd. I'd also expect to be item/gold stripped when arrested.

The phrases said by the prisoners were a nice touch, a bit more original than most.

In the conversation I overheard with Cyph and Senah(sp?) they kept referring to "him" and "he" when I had a female character.

"Theres the bodak camp" -> There's (commoner, female)

The jail guards are darn sloppy, and the bodaks in town are very blatantly in town. They killed two guards very early on. I'd think (at the very least) people would keep away from them and probably put up a makeshift barricade.

If the market place has the only shops available then I would suggest adding a few scrolls, cure light/moderate potions, traps etc. Specialist equipment (like kama/gloves for monks) should also be available if you want to support every class.

It would be better if the citizens were set up to ignore (or better, run away from) hostiles like bandits. It doesn't make sense for unarmed people to run to get slaughtered.

Having a bunch of bandits, identical looking, standing in a clump is odd. You could do something to make them fit in better. For example:
- Set up a roadblock with bandits taking 'toll'.
- Have bandits appear suddenly in an ambush (characters with high spot rolls should get a chance to see where the ambush is waiting).
= Set up a tent, camp-fire etc. for them to sit round.

The level range is given as 1 to 10. That's quite a large range - do the encounters scale?

I see what you mean by that, PaulBlay. But I had already made the beta of Tarizia before I even registered to this site. So I decided to name myself after a character in the module.
Oh, and Tarizia has been updated. I fixed the spelling errors you pointed out.

Just a comment about the use of your user name in the game. Not intended too seriously, let's just say that (for example) if I wrote a module with a major figure known as Powl Blake people might look a little askance at me. ;-)

QUOTE: Lastly ... "Dementous order". Sounds like a touch of Mary Sue (or Mary Stu if you prefer)."
Mary Sue? What do you mean by that?

OK, a few comments. First spelling mistakes:

"Don't evrn try to kill their leader, though. He's too tough." -> even

"And don't pickpocket people unless you won't get cought!" -> caught

"It is onlt a matter of time until..." -> only

Second ...

"I'm here for the Kill the Bandit Chief quest."

"I'm here for the Bodak Extermination quest."

"I'm here for the Dementous Order Raid quest."

"Your reward is 500 gold and 600 XP! Take it! You can do the quest again whenever you feel ready!"

"Since I am a quest giver, I think I can find one for you."

Out of character terms like QUEST, XP, LEVEL (OK, you didn't used that one) really take away from the feel of a module. OOC stuff should be strictly in OOC contexts (like readmes or, at a pinch, "DM Notes").

"I should collect its amulet as proof."
'its' should generally not be used when referring to people, or living humanoids. Stick to "his" (some people prefer using "their" when the gender is unknown).

Lastly ... "Dementous order". Sounds like a touch of Mary Sue (or Mary Stu if you prefer).

I also think it would have been better to put it up in place of your Beta version, not submit as a new entry. Now you're taking up _two_ slots on the "New NWN Modules" list.

It's not too late to put up a .zip(or .rar) version. You'll "lose" the 28 downloads or so you've already got but, let's face it, how likely are you to get to 2,500 nowadays?
