With more people expressing interest in creating their own campaigns, NWC has published a new guide to the process, Creating and Running a Neverwinter Nights Campaign. It walks through how to approach creating a campaign and also offers methods of customizing and using pre-built campaigns as a DM. It then goes into what is necessary to organize, prepare and run successful campaign sessions over the long term. Finally, it links many valuable resources for campaign builders and DMs throughout.

Contents

I. Choosing your campaign theme and setting
II. Building your campaign
III. Organizing play
IV. Running the campaign
V. Conclusion: a revolution in gaming

The Neverwinter Connections multiplayer co-op module list contains a number of Hall of Fame mods and campaigns that have proven to work well in MP mode.

The DM-Friendly module list on Neverwinter Vault contains mods that have all been tested and are intended for use by DMs. Some also work well without one, see the individual mod descriptions.

We welcome suggestions for additional mods for inclusion in the above lists, and are interested in hearing about NWN:EE mods in development that work for multiplayer.

The Neverwinter Nights (NWN) multiplayer community, even in its heyday in the years following the release of the original NWN, has always been rather fragmented. The previous (2002-2012) incarnation of Neverwinter Connections was an established multiplayer community hub, but even then the activity level on it regularly ebbed and flowed.

The new Neverwinter Connections only very recently launched. Although it has all the resources necessary to support and encourage multiplayer gaming, people should also look to publicize their games and seek players for gaming groups on other community sites.

The NWC Multiplayer Connection and Hosting Guide is a step-by-step explanation of how to use NWN:EE in multiplayer mode. It walks through the process of both joining internet games and how to host one on your own computer. (Now updated to version 1.1 with additional info on server options and creating the DM client shortcut)

The new NWC Quick and Dirty Multiplayer Roleplay Reference is now available as a player aid. It should be helpful for those new to the MP experience, as well as serving as an (optional) reference point for common in-game behavior standards.

The site is also pleased to host two legendary Old School NWC guides, which still hold up very well for today's NWN:EE experience. The original authors gave their blessings for them to be hosted here.

-- Gruush's The Role Player's Guide to Multiplayer Neverwinter Nights

-- Lazybones' The Neverwinter Connections Community Guide to Dungeon Mastering.

All of the above, plus additional community resource links, can be found on the NWN:EE Multiplayer Resource Page.

NWC will be adding content for the foreseeable future, both on the main NeverwinterConnections.org scheduling site and on the NWC Forums, with the goal of providing a one-stop shop for community support of multiplayer gaming in Neverwinter Nights. This will include topics such as helping explain server setup, connecting to multiplayer (MP) games, MP roleplaying standards and etiquette, and DMing in Neverwinter Nights. Understanding and using the new features offered by Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition (NWN:EE) will be an important aspect of this.

The NWN:Enhanced Edition Multiplayer Resource Links page is under construction. To avoid duplicating effort, NWC will seek to link to existing multiplayer community resources as much as possible, with all due credit. To that end, I welcome comments or private messages on what specific types of resources NWN community members have found most helpful to date.
