- THE THIRD SIGN -

A Novel-to-NWN2-Module conversion brought to you by Alex "Hugie" Hugon and author Gregory A. Wilson


Information:
The Third Sign is book written by Gregory A. Wilson brought to you in Neverwinter Nights 2 module-forum by Alex “Hugie” Hugon. The module was a contracted work intended to promote the release of the novel, which will be published by Five Star Press in June 2009 and available for purchase at Amazon.com or at your local bookstore. The primary motivation behind this teaser project is to immerse you in the world of Klune and inspire you to purchase the book when it is published.
With this in mind, it’s important to note that this is not a traditional adventure-style NWN 2 module. Due to its being a conversion of a novel, the module is, by nature, rather linear at points. You are expected to use the provided pregenerated character, Calen Gollnet (the novel’s protagonist). The focus of this project was on creating an interactive novel – on bringing the book to life in 3-d. If you are looking for a hack-n-slash or roleplay-heavy module, this may not be what you are looking for. The focus of The Third Sign module was on immersion through atmosphere, narrative, and plot-furthering cutscenes
What to expect:


What not to expect:

  • Lots of nonlinearity

  • Lots of combat

  • Many hours of gameplay

  • A complete game (this is a teaser)

All that said, Greg and I are confident that players looking for an interactive storytelling experience will enjoy The Third Sign. So what’re you waiting for?! 
