Even female elves? Oh wait.... elves have no gender. They're faeries and illusion of gender. Probably look like sasquatch when you break that glamour.

Codex Year of the Donut
I was heavily into NWN when it came out and remembering thinking at the time- "we have arrived". My fantasy of tabletop RPG being played via the highly visual environment of modern (at the time) PCs and the internet was here.

What I did not realize as a very young and naïve lad was as technology was rapidly progressing, IQs were rapidly declining. So the small, and quickly vanishing audience of people interested in TTRPGs or games that require any actual thought or more than mashing 4 buttons on an XBox controller was already in steep decline. This just got progressively worse as the 00s wore on and by 2010 it was clear to me that Idiocracy had arrived about 500 years earlier than Mike Judge had predicted.

You can track this same trend across MMOs and RPGs in general as every Codexer is well aware. But the Sight of What Might Have Been™ that NWN gave is still painful because I just assumed we'd get better and better versions leading to a full on virtual tabletop experience. It is only now, 20 years later, that some movement towards true VTTs is actually being made again.

Well, now TTrpgs have become more popular but the new kids all want to be thespians/ comedic voice actors and many are anime fans, furries, hardcore leftists, gays, etc.

Are you satisfied with that?

I played Lukes modules way back, and they definitely stood out of the average modules. Still unexpected, but welcome surprise he's still messing with NWN modules.

Yeah.

That is why it is still being played and modded after 20 years.
30 years, man.
