Neverwinter Nights: Darkness over Daggerford

Darkness over Daggerford, a freeware mod for Bioware's Neverwinter Nights hack 'n' slash RPG classic, is really impressive. Very impressive, too. Actually, it's a bit more impressive than your average impressive thing, which admittedly sort of impressed me. Also, quite impressively, said mod offers over 30 hours worth of gameplay too. Other than that, it's set in the Forgotten Realms and features some amazing (impressive, some would argue) production values. Oh, and before getting to download Darkness over Daggerford, read over this pretty impressive features lists:
  • A brand new world map system, never before seen in Neverwinter Nights, enabling the player to better explore a large world, complete with random encounters.
  • A player stronghold to enable more challenging stronghold quests, and featuring cool player customization features.
  • 3 new TNO tilesets created by DLA and released to Ossian Studios through an exclusive agreement with BioWare, including a completely new exterior tileset with rolling hills, sea cliffs, and castles.
  • A custom spawning and leveling system for creatures, to always ensure the game is challenging for any level of character.
  • Over 100 new placeables made specifically for the game.
  • 5 new music tracks by premium module composer David John.

  1. looks impressive, i'd say, that is, from an impressed point of view.

  2. Impressive...and CUTTING EDGE!!!!

    Neverwinter Nights really needed more random encounters. So I think I will enjoy this.

    I am working my way through NWN Diamond as we speak so this might be nice for a break.

  3. Impressively fulgurant, cutting edge and slightly porny from where I'm sitting...

    (that's slightly to the left of joe, right below Elderly and NE of Caleb)

  4. Im still working on Baldurs Gate 2, then I will give this a hack in 2010 probably.....

    This looks way better than Baldurs Gate..

  5. .....if i hold my mouth open in awe can i sit to the right of Joe?

  6. Might look better than Baldur's 2 Deitrix, but believe me it has none of Baldur's class. It's just an enjoyable hack 'n' slash thing. BG2 could, on the other hand, be considered the best CRPG ever...

    Why, of course Elderly. Just don't step on the alligators tale. Oh, dear. There. Now I'll have to take him to the vet again...

  7. (bleeding profusely......) take him to the vet... he's damn near taken my entire arm of from the elbow... dont' you feed him....

    why is the room swirly?


  8. Ok, I'll bring you along then. Just -please- don't bleed on the car. Thanks.
