    I'm not sure Neverwinter Nights normally would qualify for the *Massively* part of the MMO, but there is a server out there which continues to have a capacity for approximately 200 players at any one time via 12 linked servers with between 20 and 12 player slots available. That server is Higher Ground.

    Some of our members liken it to Guild Wars and WoW but better. :P

    It is very action oriented, strives for a balance of all classes, the play is primarily Player versus Monster, though PvP does exist through the guild system. The servers are supported completely by player donation and so it is FREE to play.


    Higher Ground is a highly customized from original NWN, and includes up to level 60 with new spells, class abilities and VFX specific to the module. Groups of skilled players are necessary to defeat the hardest areas. Maximum party size is set at 10 but smaller parties may also be effective in some areas.

    The module is constantly being updated with new areas coming online all of the time, our most recent ones included Elysium, Aboleths and the Pit of Moilation.

    We've just completed our newest promo video:

    You'll have to Buy Neverwinter Nights to be able to play - but being an older game it is incredibly cheap. You will need the newest version of the community expansion pack to play.

    There's been some changes to Higher Ground lately - we've moved to a new server that's more powerful!

    The server IPs include:

    Hub 1
    174.129.216.110;5121

    Hub 2
    174.129.218.11;5121

    Hub 3
    174.129.218.12;5121

    From these three main hubs you can play or jump onto smaller servers to do major runs in a lag free environment using the !portal command. For example, !portal 314 will jump you to server 314.

    These web pages can give you information about called runs when you're at your desktop and tell you who is online

    For run shouts look here
    http://info.hgweb.org/messagelog.html

    For online players - check here
    http://hgweb.acaos.webfactional.com/inf ... rlist.html

    The Higher Ground Dev team has added a lot of new content that has transformed this 2002 game to make it fresh and pretty. You don't need the extra hak, but adding it to the game will give you access to all the new features and Vfx.

    Here's a link to the hak on the servers wiki site.

    Sabregirl, not to hijack your thread or anything, but on behalf of the rest of the Codex, I feel I must ask you this question:

    You're not a tranny are you?

    Ah yeah, see... about that. Um, well, it's just that lately our resident females have turned out to be... ah, well... NOT natural born females. There's an air of uncertainty around here, y'see. Meant no personal offense.

    Check the General Discussion forum. No sense in sullying up this thread any more.

    Considering that that is already around 5-10% of the supposed codex "females"... (not counting whiny bitches and angry cunts)

    Data was trying to be funny. But he has proved again, that that is still a human concept he isn't able to correctly emulate.


    [EDIT]: 2 l8.

    Well to stay on topic and partly reply again . . there are plenty of *real* ladies that play on HG. Of course most of them play with their boyfriends or husbands, but there are a few singletons running around. And you can always find out if they're what they say they are via a teamspeak server. ;)

    I honestly think at least some codexers might like this sever - while it's not at all role playing in the sense of a single player cRPG, it does demand a high level of strategy in building and in playing. It's what's kept so many intelligent people interested in the game for years at a time. Plus of course the longtime friends you develop, there's even one couple that met on HG. :)

    Specifically to your "interesting demographic", I find it rather fascinating the sort of crowd this site attracts sometimes - so I can't say I'm really surprised at your "revelation". ^_^
