About Neverwinter Nights
Neverwinter Nights is a computer game set in a huge medieval fantasy world. This role-playing game (RPG) puts you at the central of an epic tale of epic tale of faith, war, and betrayal.
As a player you are able to choose what skills and abilities you will develop as voyage though the complex and dangerous fantasy world of Forgotten Realms®. Be a deadly and dangerous Rogue moving through the shadows using stealth and secrecy, be a sage-like Wizard who wields powerful magic against his enemies, be a hulking Barbarian whose lust for battle is matched only by his terrible rage, be a armor clad Paladin who protects the innocent and vanquishes his foes, be a crusading Cleric who heals the sick and defends the helpless… be all this and more.
Neverwinter Nights has unlimited potential. This revolutionary game will come with all the tools needed to construct your own unique worlds of adventure. The Toolset allows even novice users to construct everything from a quiet, misty forest or a dripping cavern of foul evil, to a king’s court. All the monsters, items, set pieces and settings are there for world builders to use. But do not stop there construct traps, encounters, custom monsters and magic items to make your adventure unique.
But the Neverwinter experience is not just for one person- adventure with all your friends. Neverwinter Nights can be played online with up to 64 friends all sharing in the adventure. You can take the role of the Dungeon Master®- the game organizer- and control all the monsters and other characters your friends meet as they journey on their quest. A powerful piece of software included with Neverwinter Nights, the DM Client, allows nearly unlimited control for running your own adventures for your friends.

Neverwinter Nights…endless adventures.
The five fundamental components of Neverwinter Nights are:
The Official Campaign: Players create a character in accordance with Wizard of the Coast’s 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons® rules, then adventure through an epic story, battling fearsome creatures, improving their character, and immersing themselves in the popular fantasy milieu of the Forgotten Realms. Players can expect over 60 hours of story-based gameplay from the official campaign. Neverwinter Nights is fully playable in both single player and multiplayer: Play through the game by yourself or, if you have an Internet or LAN connection, share the adventure with friends from around the world using our dedicated in-game matching service. Players can move their characters seamlessly between the two modes with no need to convert files back and forth or maintain separate versions of their characters.
Other Modules: Neverwinter Nights will also have an assortment of modules, both at ship and at post-release, in the game and on the community site. These other modules will offer a high replay value outside that provided by the official campaign, and may also be built by BioWare, and other partners subsequent to the initial release of Neverwinter Nights.
The Dungeon Master (DM) Client: Pen and paper role-playing games draw their appeal from having someone who controls the flow of the story, making sure that the players are having a fun time. In D&D, this person is called the Dungeon Master (DM). With its fully integrated DM Client software, Neverwinter Nights revolutionizes the computer role-playing genre by putting that power back in the hands of our users, where it belongs. As the game progresses, Dungeon Masters will have the power to control the difficulty of the game in real time; place and remove creatures, items, and other objects within the gameworld; possess non-player characters and monsters to speak through them and control their actions; and use various other tools to enhance the mood and heighten the gameplay experience of their players. Neverwinter Nights does not require a Dungeon Master to play the game, however in multiplayer mode a Dungeon Master will certainly enhance the enjoyment of the game of all playing.
The Neverwinter Aurora Toolset: The true power of any role-playing system lies in its ability to unleash the imagination. The Neverwinter Aurora Toolset does just that. It is a powerful but user-friendly RPG creation toolset – the same one BioWare is using to create their Official Campaign. A series of "wizards" and automated assistants will speed up the workflow of advanced users while at the same time providing novice users with the necessary help and guidance to bring their dreams to life. The average user will be able to construct an enjoyable dungeon crawl in under an hour. Advanced users will be able to add narrative depth using our extremely flexible conversation editor and NWScript, our powerful C-styled scripting language.
The Portal System: Massively multiplayer games are becoming increasingly popular and prevalent within the industry. While the Official Neverwinter Nights Campaign will not include a massively multiplayer component, the toolset will give players the power to create their very own persistent worlds. This is made possible by our innovative Portal System. Through the placement of Portals within your gameworld, you will be able to connect your Neverwinter module to modules running on the machines of friends, guildmates, and fellow players. This modular structure allows for a persistent gameworld of theoretically infinite dimensions and with an equally infinite player capacity.
Players begin the official campaign in the northern city of Neverwinter on the eve of a deadly and all-consuming plague. The sickness spreads quickly from its origin in the beggars’ quarter, and soon all of Neverwinter is under quarantine and falling victim to what will become known as the Wailing Death. A plea for help is sent to the allied city of Waterdeep and the powerful wizard, Khelben Blackstaff Arunsun, arranges for a collection of rare and magical creatures to be delivered to Neverwinter where they might serve as reagents to a cure. The heavily guarded caravan reaches the troubled city with great secrecy, but to no avail. Despite the secrecy, unknown assailants ambush the academy where the creatures are held and succeed in releasing the Waterdhavian creatures into that Neverwinter night.
At the behest of Lord Nasher and the young Tyrist paladin, Aribeth de Tylmarande, the adventurers of the city set out to recapture the dangerous creatures of Waterdeep, cure the Wailing Death, and unravel the conspiracy of Neverwinter’s mysterious betrayers.
