NWN2 Mod Mage Tome Version 2 Launched

Broken Staff Studios is pleased to announce the launch of version 2 of the Mage Tome mod for Neverwinter Nights 2.

This project began in the early summer of 2015 and is now available for download on December 1, 2015 as an early Christmas present to fans of NWN2 and DnD 3.5.

Mage Tome is a mod that adds many PRCs (prestige classes) and spells for arcane spellcasters in Neverwinter Nights 2. It requires the base game plus the two expansions.
