1:32 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Fan site Planet Neverwinter is reporting that Wizards of the Coast plans to release Neverwinter Nights - An Anthology at the same time this online RPG hits shelves in mid-2001. Wizards is of course the owners of all of the AD&D properties, and the creators of the Forgotten Realms world and the Third Edition ruleset upon which Neverwinter Nights is based. Here is a description of the book from the Wizards web site:
A fantasy tie-in novel based on the upcoming computer game Neverwinter Nights . The Neverwinter Nights computer game is scheduled for release the same time as the novel--June 2001. Both are based on the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, and the novel uses the same characters as the game to produce the story.
The story revolves around the city of Neverwinter, which is being plagued by horrific monsters.
After some sleuthing by our heroes, it's discovered that a malicious cult may be the cause of all the trouble.
Steve Winter is the co-author of Wanderlust . For 16 years, he edited, developed, and designed several rulebooks, adventures, and supplements for the Dungeons & Dragons game. Recently he's been involved in computer game development, additional roleplaying and game development, and writing magazine articles. He resides in Wisconsin.
Planet Neverwinter has also posted a collection of quotes from the NWN forums from members of the development team. Many issued are discussed, from the level size limitation to how saved games will work.
