EverQuest II is a pretty good game to play. This still isn’t better than Guild Wars or Call of Duty. This game does beat EverQuest, though. The graphics do not look Nintendo 64 graphics and the gameplay runs smooth. This game look like Oblivion meets Guild Wars. Why? Because the graphics looks like Oblivion and the gameplay runs like Guild Wars.

Well, Oblivion came out around 2006 and Guild Wars came out around 2005, but this game came out around 2004. So, this game was out before Oblivion and Guild Wars. The character creation is better than Oblivion, but not Guild Wars. I liked the character creation because I can make the girls look cute and sexy. You can chose different hair styles you want, but you can’t color their hair blue, green, and pink. You can color there hair red, brown, blond, and even white. If you want anime hair, you can choose white. You don’t see face detail in this game. You can only see it in Oblivion, but not this game. Well, the girls are cuter than before.

Here is the video that was originally created for the Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative by by Jay Clayton of Vanderbilt University, offered at Coursera

The actual NeverWinter Nights 1 game modual can be downloaded from the following link Ithaca_NWN1. My wife and I spent 35 hours on the creation of the mod and then about an hour setting up for the video. If you down load the mod, it was made with NWN not NWN2 with all expansions as well as CEP 2.4 available at the The NeverWinter Vault

Here is the poem that was used in creating the various different game areas.

Ithaca

As you set out on the way to Ithaca
hope that the road is a long one,
filled with adventures, filled with understanding.
The Laestrygonians and the Cyclopes,
Poseidon in his anger: do not fear them,
you’ll never come across them on your way
as long as your mind stays aloft, and a choice
emotion touches your spirit and your body.
The Laestrygonians and the Cyclopes,
savage Poseidon; you’ll not encounter them
unless you carry them within your soul,
unless your soul sets them up before you.
