But from where?!?

I find it sad that all of these additions would justify to some the added $10.

Yep, that module looks to be a good one. Assuming it is a resumable download I'll get my download manager to work on it when I go to bed.

Yeah, it's a huge download(over 230 MB.) The tileset that DLA put together for this thing has to be seen to be believed. :hoo:

This makes me want to go back and work on my module again...and I think I'll go do that.

I just finished the module with my Ranger and I have to say that I enjoyed it immensly. It's much more focused on sidequests than a main story, not that it doesn't have one mind you, and this suits my tastes.

*nods* correct. But knowing me (and my NWN addiction) I'll probably finish the single player campaign in a week...after that I can't do anything with it anymore.

Heck, I'll probably buy it and try to get it to work on this anyways. I can play Heroes 5 pretty well minus any anti-aliasing, so hopefully I'll be able to run Neverwinter Nights 2.

It's a shame they won't let you play NWN modules with the NWN2 game. I know a lot of people were asking this on certain forums.

True. It will mean a lot of extra work for a lot of developers. But it is also good for some player worlds...cause some really need an overhaul. B-)
