  1. Brings back memories! Makes me wanna play again.

    1. I'm glad, because that's the whole point of this blog. :)

  2. Have you tried "Mysteries of Westgate" It's near the top of my list. It's a lot lower magic than most the other first party NWN2 content. This is a big plus for me, but not everyone.

    1. I do appreciate low magic campaigns, and I liked the branching paths in MoW. I have the GoG version of NWN now, which includes it, so I might have to give it another whirl. It's been a while.

  3. Have you played PJ156's Tales From the Lake of Sorrows campaign?
    Love to have your thoughts on that one. Some of the best dialog and character development anywhere.

    1. I'm no longer big on modules that focus on dialogue and NPC character development; that's not D&D.

    2. What is true "D&D" though?
