New Gloomveil Content
4:30 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

This unusual site, inspired by the upcoming online RPG Neverwinter Nights, has been updated yet again with more unique content. A visual as well as textual feast, this site truly captures the meaning and execution of 'multimedia' - can you tell we like it? Here's the update on new content at the site:

Gloomveil is an original, fan-created fantasy realm in anticipation of the upcoming Neverwinter Nights game by Bioware/Black Isle Studios. takes the Neverwinter experience a step further -- it's an extension of the game itself, a place where fans can continue their role- playing experience beyond the game.

Due to popular demand, we now offer a non-Flash version of Gloomveil for those without the popular plugin or with a slow internet connection. While many of the Flash applications will be unavailable, the non-Flash version lives up to the lush standards of the original Flash site.

This month, the Brothers Three Inn Leisure Den features "The Mysterious Armour", an interactive widget that requires the Flash4 plugin.

The Library of Lore has been updated, adding another chapter to the Anthology, and two new installments of "Kilean's Story"

The Gloomveil Anthology, an illustrated interactive book (requires Flash4) has been updated with the story of the Barrow Hermit. The 5000- word story spans almost 30 pages, and is the culmination of a Play By Email adventure that took place over a 3-month period.

This site also accepts submissions, so you can contribute to the Gloomveil world as well as experience it.

Neverwinter Nights is a 3D online RPG in development by Bioware, creators of Baldur's Gate. This unique title will allow you to not only participate in realtime RPG adventures online, but also create and host your own dynamic dungeons for other players to conquer. Although at least a year from completion, this game is already generating tremendous 'buzz' and was a huge hit at E3.

Make sure you check out regardless of whether you are interested in NWN or not; any fan of fantasy literature will find something intriguing.
