Neverwinter Nights: Kingmaker BioWare Corporation, Floodgate Entertainment, LLC / Atari, Inc. 2005

The extraordinary longevity of the 2002 rpg Neverwinter Nights (which is required to play this as is Hordes of the Underdark expansion) can be attributed largely to the Aurora toolset included with the original game. With it, Dungeon Masters everywhere could let their imaginations run wild, constructing their own scenarios or modules which could then be shared with up to 64 friends online. Many did just that, and as a result literally thousands of these modules exist today, and are available to the public through BioWare's official Neverwinter Nights site. A select few, created by BioWare designers and prominent members of the online community, were awarded the coveted title of Premium Neverwinter Nights Module. As well as new in-game content, these modules feature professional voice acting and new music scores. For a minimal fee you could - and still can - download them. Neverwinter Nights: Kingmaker is a collection of three such modules. Neverwinter Nights: Kingmaker is BioWare's flagship Premium Module, and along with the other two titles has been around since the launch of their online store in November 2004. Your party - an eclectic combination of characters, is thrown into the midst of a power struggle, set in and around a war-torn keep. There's a colourful selection of NPCs to interact with, plus plenty of intrigue and sufficient quests to keep you occupied for a good 5-8 hours, although non-linear gameplay and alternate plot paths give this module excellent replay value. Neverwinter Nights: ShadowGuard is a story-driven single player module set in the city of Ghaarak, in the custom-created world of Abaran. The story goes that your character's impressive performance at the prestigious Imperial Academy has earned an invitation to join the ShadowGuard - an elite group of agents who serve the empire. There are two to three hours of gameplay to be had with this one, and plenty of secondary quests to supplement the mystery-laden primary adventure. Neverwinter Nights: Witch's Wake is the oldest of the three modules, with over a million downloads since its release. It was initially available as a freebie, but a remastering make-over has seen it elevated to Premium Module status. Essentially the first chapter in an ongoing campaign, your character - sole survivor of a fierce battle, bears witness to a prince's dying words: "Tell the king that she is dead." Unfortunately his message means very little since your character is suffering from memory loss (must've been that last clout on the noggin!). Charged with a noble quest to deliver your liege's message, your character then sets off on an epic journey. Again, you can expect a couple of hours' play or more, but the abrupt "to be continued..." ending is rather unsatisfying.
