Darklands to be Adapted into Neverwinter Nights 2 Campaign

Posted by on October 15, 2013

Welcome to Neverdarklands; representing a visionary effort, striving to bring together the richest elements that make up traditional roleplaying with modern computer gaming!

Microprose releases Darklands RPG in 1992

Derived from the efforts of Microprose, Darklands was a colossal, dynamic role-playing game written for the personal computer; set in the Holy Roman Empire during the 15th century.  At the time it was hailed as one of the greatest RPG experiences on a PC, taking the gaming community by storm. The consummate game play continues to rival the epic scale settings and gaming mechanics being run on today’s consoles.

And yet over the years gaming systems have evolved, ultimately spawning what is widely considered to be the benchmark of third-person perspective computer role-playing games: that of Bioware’s Neverwinter Nights. From a developer’s approach, it remains the penultimate achievement in community game design,  nurturing the creative energies of the author, honoring past game settings by virtue of its flexible storytelling environs, or simply unfolding new settings and tales of wonder for others to pay witness.

This is what Neverdarklands is about. A long overdue homage to Darklands through the devices of the Neverwinter Nights (2) gaming engine.

Updates on the progress of this “module” will occur at intervals throughout the scope of this migration endeavor. Stay tuned, and feel free to express your thoughts and interest toward this project in the meantime! For those less familiar, a summary will soon follow, dictating the splendor of the environment during this tumultuous period, by providing an historical backdrop that portrays the sum and substance of the game setting (along with a fair share of supernatural license), and plans toward adapting these elements into suitable game playing artifacts and missions along the way. The scope of the project, its progress and critical paths along with your feedback, including the soliciting of needs from any community members who might be interested in its fruition, will all be addressed here. In the meantime, check out the “Pages” section in the sidebar for more information.
