'Neverwinter Nights 2' - Unofficial v1.01 Patches Available NOW

by Rainier on Nov. 4, 2006 @ 6:20 a.m. PST

Bards sing tales of heroes from ages past, but never have the Forgotten Realms so desperately needed a champion. Years have passed since the war between Luskan and Neverwinter, almost enough time for the wounds of war to heal. But the brief peace the Realms have known may be at an end. Tension growing between the mighty city-states means the Sword Coast again teeters on the edge of open war. Unnoticed, a greater danger stalks the City of Skilled Hands. Unbeknownst to the denizens of the North, deep in the Mere of Dead Men, dark forces from across the Realms have been rallied under the banner of a legendary evil. If left unchallenged, all of the North is doomed to fall under its power.

Over the next three monthly patches we will be continuing to add features, fix bugs, and improve the interface.
New Druid Spells - Druids have been granted 9 new spells, one for each level. In addition, the feat Natural Spell has been added. Druids that take the Natural Spell feat may cast spells while Polymorphed or Wild Shaped.
Level 1 - Foundation of Stone: This spell grants a target immunity to knockdown, but reduces their movement speed.
Level 2 - Body of the Sun: The caster's body emanates fire, burning nearby creatures.
Level 3 - Jagged Tooth: This spell grants a targeted animal the Keen property on one of its natural weapons.
Level 4 - Moonbolt: This spell creates a bolt of energy that deals strength damage to living creatures and knocks down undead, giving them penalties on attack rolls and saving throws.
Level 5 - Rejuvenation Cocoon: The target of this spell becomes encased in a regenerative cocoon, where they are cured from poison and disease and regenerate health.
Level 6 - Tortoise Shell: The caster gains a natural armor bonus of +6, plus an additional 1 per every three caster levels to a maximum of +9.
Level 7 - Swamp Lung: This spell causes victims to fall prone for 1-6 rounds, during which time they can catch disease.
Level 8 - Storm Avatar: This spell infuses the caster with the energy of a storm, making them immune to missiles, hasting them, and adding damage to their attacks
Level 9 - Nature's Avatar: This spell grants a targeted animal a series of very powerful buffs.

Water Reflection/Refraction - Water is now more visually exciting! Users have the option to toggle Water Reflection and Refraction on in the Options Menu under the Advanced Graphics tab. Note: These settings can cause slowdowns on older hardware.
Client Packs - Module makers can now create Client Packs in the toolset, which can be placed in clients My Documentspwc folder to allow users to connect to Multiplayer Games for which they do not have the module. These .pwc files contain only the data absolutely necessary to run the module on the client side are useful if, for instance, you are running a persistent world and do not wish to allow clients to open your module with all of its areas, creatures, and scripts visible.
