News from The Amethyst Dragon about the Custom Content Challenge and More
1. The new month has started for the Custom Content Challenge, with a new theme. Anyone that wants to can make new stuff for NWN1, be it models, scripts, prefabs, sounds, inventory icons, whatever. The theme for May is “Dragon Stuff”. There’s a thread in the NWN custom content section of the BioWare social site (or a link to it on the neverwinternights.info custom content page).
2. The final part of Project Reforged, Ranged Weapons, is now online and available for anyone to download. I’ve now overridden ALL of the default NWN weapons (both via override and hak).
3. And on a note related to archery, I updated the three year old VFX Quivers & Arrows, with all new models and textures, so NWN builders can update their own versions (very easily, it’s the same filenames for the models) or start using it now. For those that don’t know, this is a set of visual effects builders/scripters can apply to PCs to add visual quivers and arrows without having to use an armor part.
From Perfect World PR Rep:
We’ve been working towards Neverwinter’s Open Beta for quite some time now, and we’re pleased that it’s live today! We have “you” to thank for the tremendous success so far!

New NWN2 Module
Crimmor by Kamal
Crimmor is a module for solo rogues of level 8 (you can level up and receive appropriate gold ingame). Use skills and rogue abilities as a Shadow Thief in the streets of the Amnian city of Crimmor.
You may like this module, you may not. Crimmor is experimental and is focused primarily on the urban environment and providing the “feel” of a city, as well as rogue focused non-combat gameplay. If you are all about combat, this is probably not the module for you.
Crimmor pushes the NWN2 toolset’s hard limit on objects in the external city areas, additionally, there are numerous npcs in the city. I recommend a modern pc. You’ve been warned.

The Amethyst Dragon
- I’m now the guy in charge (mostly) of organizing the Custom Content Challenge.
- Still making stuff for the CCC.
- I’m helping out a little with the NWN Vault (doing the site ads that show on the front page).
- Still running my PW, The World of Aenea (6 1/2 years now).
- I’m mostly done with my Project Reforged, after some model-making burnout in October/November.
- Still keeping up with the community site (neverwinternights.info).
- Working on minor game promotion by posting on places like FaceBook and Reddit.
I’d also be into just discussing NWN in general.
EPISODE 65: “Epic-Logue.”
Writer’s Note: At long last, the Episode that wraps it all up! Grayson, Ruth and Amiee all talk at the bar – and get a surprise visit from someone while they’re there! But where’s Peter the Ranger? Outside, where a Ranger should be! But why is he outside if everyone is inside celebrating the opening of The Bar Of Destiny? Well, you will have to watch the episode to find out what’s going on there! And when the episode ends – be sure to hang tight – there’s an epilogue segment that discusses where some of the characters have ended up at the conclusion of the series!
