Announcing Epic Spellcasting in NWN2

I’ve wanted to do a version 3 of the Mage Tome mod for a while but left it on the backburner while I dealt with some RL issues and helped develop and upcoming game based on one of my childhood favourites. Once those cleared up I decided to start working on version 3 again. I already had a list of PRCs and spells I was interested in adding but I needed a big improvement to add to the game to justify making a new major version of the mod. It needed to top the Shadow Magic system I created in […]

Shadow Magic is on the Way!

Neverwinter Nights 2 has wizards, sorcerers and warlocks as arcane spellcasters out of the box. That should be enough variety, but it is not for me.
