    <a href=http://www.bioware.com>BioWare</a> have just revealed the latest in their series of Neverwinter Nights premium modules: <a href=http://nwn.bioware.com/premium/module_infinitedungeons.html>Infinite Dungeons</a>. You can go and buy it at the BioWare store on the 24th.<blockquote>You've journeyed to Waterdeep to explore Undermountain, the most famous dungeon in all of the Forgotten Realms. According to the legends, there's treasure to be won, puzzles to be solved, and a mystery that will lead you ever deeper… But the legends never told you how deep it truly went.
    <br>
    <br>
    Infinite Dungeons provides randomly generated adventures for characters of every level. Play with your friends or compete against your adversaries. If you dare, you can play alone. In the end, it all comes down to one question: Are you brave enough?</blockquote>As a corollary to that infinite monkeys on infinite typewriters yeilding the complete works of Shakespeare idea, could an infinite amount of NWN eventually produce an actual good RPG? Someone fire up the supercomputer so we can find out.
    <br>

    Thanks to <b>burrie</b> for the heads up.

    Uum.. I wouldn't exactly call this moudle a role-playing game. It's very combat oriented.. the joinable sare 100% meat puppets, and non combat skills are used infrequently supposedly. There's, of course, a story; but don't expect it to be focus.

    I doubt 99% of the Codexers would come close to likeing this mod simply ebcause the combat is the focus and you guys all whine about 'how horrible the Aurora combat is'. :roll:

    Then again, you guys are known for your stupidity so who knows.

    Well I might have played it to see if it had a roguelike feel, but, er, Nethack has better combat than NWN so i'll stick with that :wink:

    Because I rather have some control of my character instead of the computer doing all the work? If I want to sit back and watch combat with vaporized enemies, I’d watched Ricky-O or something along those lines.

    "Because I rather have some control of my character instead of the computer doing all the work?"

    That's the way any good RPG does it. Your play your character; but the character actually does the action. ie.. in FO, I select to attaempt to blow the head off a mutant so I click the called shot on hea db utton and my character (the game) does the actual shot.

    Game over.


    "So is bioware up to like 5 rpg modules? In 4 years? Fuckin amazing, your the best BIOWARE."

    You do realzie that NWN PM aren't their main focus right? That they have a handful of guys only working on' em? I say one thing - 5 moDules in 4 years is much more than the 0 games inb a billion years that Troika will ever make most likely.


    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!@!!


    P.S. It's ncie to see the Codex still pimping on behalf of NWN after all these years! It nearly brings a single glass tear down my cheek. :lol:

    I'll be trying it out regardless as I'm getting a free copy. :D
    Randomly generated dungeons aren't my first choice in an RPG, but they do allow for a novelty factor that helps with replayability. And if they add random generation capability to the toolset then that is one more feature that module builders can make use of.

    Are Bioware even making these modules? I thought they had hired makers of successful free mods to build them.

    Actually, this is the first module for NWN I've seen that actually peaked my interest. It'd also be a nice feature to include in NWN2.

    Apparantly, they ran into some troubles with Atari and WotC who wants them to only create Premium Modules that are set in the Forgotten Realms from now on. So the chances of an official continuation are pretty slim.
