Underdark glimpse at UGO

There's a short preview of Hordes of the Underdark over at UGO talking a bit about the second expansion pack to Neverwinter Nights. Here's a bit on the prestige classes:
Feature-wise, the game introduces several new prestige classes to the mix. First, the Red Dragon Disciple, a warrior whose main quest is to harness the power of dragons (and sports some nifty wings coming out of his back, to boot). There's also the Weaponmaster, a class whose benefits in hand-to-hand and ranged combat make them a force to be reckoned with. And, for all those Gimli fans out there, you can work up to becoming a Dwarven Defender, who makes up for his lack of stature with some pretty severe axe play. But for those who?re worried that they'll be all by their lonesome adventuring in the Underdark, no worries, as this expansion introduces the opportunity to hire not one, but two mercenaries to fight with you (some of which will definitely be familiar to fans of the previous games).
Shouldn't the number of hirelings be based on Charisma? Oh, that's right. That's a non-combat rule. Won't be seeing that implimented in a BioWare game!
