Neverwinter Nights (CD-ROM Video Game)

BioWare, the company that brought you Baldur's Gate and the sequel BG2: Shadows of Amn, are at it again with what promises to be the most revolutionary online RPG yet: Neverwinter Nights. Why is it revolutionary? Because Neverwinter Nights dares to play like the pen-and-paper Dungeons & Dragons game it was based on.

Neverwinter Nights will be an online multiplayer role-playing game, but it won't be anything like EverQuest or Ultima Online. Instead of thousands of players exploring a single game world, Neverwinter Nights will feature small bands of players gathering on a single server. One player will take the role of Dungeon Master and will coordinate the story, control monsters, and guide players along a pre-made adventure from BioWare or from the Dungeon Master's own imagination. The overall experience will be much more personal, and will play just like the pen-and-paper game except without time-consuming dice rolls and rules arguments.

Those who don't want to run a game can always simply join an open game server and meet new people. Gamers looking for a solo experience can play through the included single-player adventures.

A new state-of-the-art 3-D graphics engine powers the game. It will also use the current 3rd edition rule set for Dungeons & Dragons. Neverwinter Nights will likely forever change the way we role-play online. --Andrew S. Bub
