NWN Character Contest Winners
9:49 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The official Neverwinter Nights page has pointed out that the winner of their character creation contest has been chosen. Late last month the fan votes were tallied, and the three highest ranked were sent to Bioware to be chosen by the team. The final candidates were Fered Flintrock (with 27% of the total votes), Vlintz Vulst (with 12% of the total votes), and Daab Nore (with 10% of the total votes). Here's Bioware producer Trent Oster with their pick for the winner:

It was an exciting collection of knights and ne'er-do-wells but one has finally risen to the top to claim victory: the half-orc scoundrel and bounty hunter, Vlintz Vulst. While he may not be the most charming man in Luskan, this venerable old underdog is shrewder than he looks and persistent enough to get results. What I liked most about Vlintz was his simplicity - he was very human, if I can use the term. He has no superpowers, no equipment of note - just the street smarts that comes with being a needed man in Luskan. So Vlintz, step up to the podium and "Coom git yoor med'icin," indeed.
Looks like Vlintz will make it in the full version of Neverwinter Nights. Congratulations to all the finalists and other excellent entries. Check out the main Interplay page for links to the three finalists' character descriptions.
