While adventures in Neverwinter Nights (NWN) often feature combat and exploration, many times what makes them special are the personalities – friends, enemies, and others – we meet and interact with: the non-player characters (NPCs).

This Neverwinter Connections PDF guide addresses both builder (NWN toolset) and Dungeon Master (DM client) methods of creating believable and memorable NPCs. The techniques described are ones designed to offer the best value for a relatively limited investment in time and effort. For those who are looking to go deeper into NPC-related subjects, there is an additional resource list included at the end of the guide.

The download page with a full contents list is at https://neverwinterconnections.org/pages/guide_nwn_npcs
Carlo / Sep 28, 2020 / Site news


The recently-launched Neverwinter Nights Workshop community site is dedicated to hosting guides on all aspects of NWN and NWN:EE gaming. The site owner, Orion, has been a long-time NWN gamer and has done a lot of work on various PC builds, among other things.

Regarding multiplayer and DM-led gaming, Orion found out about Neverwinter Connections and its guides and resources. After doing a lot of research, he conducted an extensive interview with Carlo on the subject, which goes over both the contemporary NWC site and the rich history behind the original one.

The interview, which includes a number of graphics from NWC and its community members, can be found here:
