for those of you who are feeling nostalgic about the original diablo and have neverwinter nights, maybe you'll like this mod: http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=Modules.Detail&id=3713
if the link does not work, you can just go to www.nwvault.com
, then do a search in the modules section of the site. alternatively, you can just click on the top rated modules and the lord of terror mod will show up there. it's been one of the highest rated mods in the site and unsurprisingly, has been downloaded a lot. it has garnered a rating of 9.73/10 and has been awarded the hall of fame.
it does require the cep (community expansion project), but it's easy to download and install it anyway. i'm not sure if it requires both expansions though;i have the platinum edition and it runs smoothly.
my human fighter just cleared out the first level of the cathedral and is now ready to take on the butcher. i decided to hire a human monk (yes, there are henchmen!) to help me out because my memories of the butcher in the original diablo are not too plesant. boy, do i feel excited on seeing how the mod-builder made the butcher and king leoric using the nwn aurora engine. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
the mod-builder also put in andariel in the mod, so it's another thing to look forward to. the atmosphere of the mod is just terrific. the original score of diablo 1 is there, along with other custom music. the soundtrack file is a big download size, though, almost 100mb. i spent almost 2 hrs last friday night jut to download that thing on dsl connection. but it's optional; you can play the mod without the music. but for those of us who've played divinity, i think you'll agree w/ me that the music plays a big part in playing games. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
it's just amazing to see tristram in the nwn engine, in full 3d. looks wonderful. and all of the npc's are there: cain, griswold, ogden, gillan, pepin, adria the witch, and of course, wirt, who just stole 50 of my hard-earned the first time i talked to him. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
i hope you guys can play it and share your experiences here.
