NWN Rolgan’s Trial

Rolgan’s Trial is a quest in the Neverwinter Nights Official Campaign. This text is mainly taken from cheat-da-game.

This is a real tricky quest, and I haven’t been able to complete it perfectly, though I have tried very hard, I’m pretty sure there is no way to complete it perfectly.

He was wrong, and discovered so below. You get this quest in the Temple of Tyr, where you learn about the fate of Rolgan, a man who killed one of the army’s soldiers. Your job is to represent him, and prove that he is innocent.

NWN Playing a Paladin

This article has links to the Bioware forums which are now broken. See BiowareCommunity Forums V1.It is the notes a made when running through the game the first time. I chose a Paladin and took some bad advice. I am really not sure about running the first four levels as a fighter to get the bastard sword proficiency. The Paladin is not as tasty as I expected from V1 rules. (See below).

This needs the full size images uploaded.

The Last Inn

This is a NWN community written module. I downloaded this and have tried to play it twice with a pre-made wizard character. In both games after a time, all the NPC’s in the village turn hostile, won’t talk and can’t be damaged. You can’t get the next quest hints. I may try and carry on, to see if this is a hint that you shouldn’t be returning to the village, but maybe not.

Planescape Torment

Another Bioware game based on the Infinity Engine and the AD&D V2 rules. A lot of the BG2 modders community argue this is the best game of all. Currently Amazon are offering second hand white label copies for upwards of 50 quid.

NWN Stability

When playing NWN, I have had some serious stability problems while playing using my XP platforms. This article was written in Nov 2008 and is probably pretty redundant.

Jaheira

Jaheira

In Baldur’s Gate 2, there are specific quests related to the interaction between you (the protagonist) and certain individual party members. One of the candidates as an object of your affection is Jaheira, who you first met in part one, Baldur’s Gate. This part of the game is very buggy and I collected the advice on how to fix the game in this FAQ. It was originally written in April 2002. It’s mainly about fixing, patching and poking the game, although it contains a couple of hints. The links section is going to be pretty broken by now. DFL 2014

This page has several sections; Lennon’s Hints, Poking the Game, Q & A, I’m in a hurry aka Read me first, Some Links, Background and playing hints.
