NWN2 English Modules/Campaigns

Harvest of Chaos: King's Festival + Queen's Harvest
A NWN2 conversion by Kaldor Silverwand of the tabletop modules King's Festival and Queen's Harvest originally written by Carl Sargent and published by TSR, Inc. in 1989. Playing this campaign requires NWN2 and both the Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir expansions. It was designed and tested for single-player.

Silverwand Sample Campaign
A small campaign consisting of two modules, 3 exterior areas, and several interior areas. Demonstrates many techniques commonly used in modules and campaigns.

Gems of Power Campaign (under development)

NWN2 Official Campaign Enhancements

NWN2 OC Makeover SoZ Edition
The NWN2 OC Makeover SoZ Edition is a collection of scripts, items, and UI modification that can be applied to the NWN2 Official Campaign in order to enable features of SoZ when playing the OC. This requires the NWN2 OC, MoTB expansion, and the SoZ expansion. Also includes the "Allow Party To Talk in OC" and "NWN2 OC Nasher Set Fix" enhancements.

Allow Party To Talk in OC - enables companions to be used as speakers rather than only the main PC

NWN2 OC Nasher Set Fix -  Lord Nasher has four magical items - boots, gloves, cloak, and ring. But in the NWN2 OC you can only get the ring and boots. According to the descriptions these four items when worn together provide additional enhancements, though individually they are outmatched by other items in the OC. These four items were defined in the game toolset but only the boots and ring were placed into the game itself. The ring, although intended to be a unique item, is actually in the OC in two places. This fix includes scripts which when copied into your override folder will address three problems:

- the ring will no longer be available twice
- the cloak and gloves will now be available
- when all four items are worn together they will be enhanced

This fix is included in the NWN2 OC Makeover SoZ Edition.

Mask of the Betrayer Enhancements

NWN2 MotB Makeover SoZ Edition
The NWN2 MotB Makeover SoZ Edition is a collection of scripts, items, modules, and UI modifications that can be applied to the NWN2 Mask of the Betrayer Campaign in order to enable features of SoZ when playing MotB and allow usage of some of the OC companions. This requires the NWN2 OC, MoTB expansion, and the SoZ expansion. A walkthrough is available that includes information on the areas added by the MotB Makeover. Also includes the "Enhanced Dream Weapon" and "MotB Spirit Eater Autopause" enhancements.

Enhanced Dream Weapon - fixed and enhanced version of the MotB Dream Weapon. The Dream Weapon is a weapon originally included with the NWN2 MotB expansion. The weapon in MotB allows the wielder to change its shape, however the item as implemented in MotB has several problems:

  • The longsword version is bugged such that once changed to a longsword the weapon can no longer change shape. 
  • The ability of the weapon to change is dependent on the feats of the main PC, not the feats of the weapon holder (MotB assumes that the weapon is only used by the main PC). 
  • The weapon has only eight possible shapes: battleaxe, dagger, greatsword, longbow, longsword, mace, quarterstaff, scimitar. 
The Enhanced Dream Weapon makes the following changes:
  • The longsword version is corrected, so that it no longer prevents future shape changes. 
  • The ability of the weapon to change is dependent on the feats of the wielder, rather than the main PC. 
  • The weapon has 13 additional forms (total of 21 forms): Bastard sword, club, falchion, handaxe, katana, kukri, light crossbow, morningstar, rapier, scythe, shortsword, spear, and warhammer. 
The Enhanced Dream Weapon is included with the MotB Makeover SoZ Edition, so if you just want to use the item when playing MotB there is no need to install this. If you wish to use it in other campaigns then you should install this in your override folder.

MotB Spirit Eater Autopause - Prevents Spirit Eater points from being lost when the party is idle (such as during conversations or when working with inventory or leveling)

Spirit Eater Recharger: Part of the Silverwand Sundries Collection (see below), this is a usable item that allows the Spirit Eater in Mask of the Betrayer to recharge his/her Spirit Eater points to 100 at any time

Storm of Zehir Enhancements

SoZ Party max override - increases the maximum number of party members allowed

SoZ Party Editor Menu - allows access to the party editor from the menu

Mysteries of Westgate Enhancements

MoW Party Editor Menu - allows access to the party editor from the menu

Silverwand Armory - A collection of unique armors and shields. Some items use tag-based scripts to enable certain functions. Modules that do not allow tag-based scripting will prevent these items from working properly.
Armor of the Golem

  • Giantkiller Mithral Plate: This suit of mithral plate was worn by the dwarven hero Gimlas who avenged the murder of his family against the northern frost giants with such zest that he became known as Gimlas Giantkiller. It is said that while wearing this armor Gimlas could brush off the strongest of giant blows. Restricted to dwarves, gnomes, and halflings. 
  • Eldritch Knight Chain Shirt: Provides +5 AC, Bonus Arcane Spell Level 5, Combat Casting, and Power Attack.
  • Armor of the Golem: This studded leather armor of unknown origin provides magical protection to any wearer. However, for those of hearty constitution (15 or above) the armor also allows the wearer to polymorph into an Iron Golem for 1 hour plus an additional 15 minutes for each constitution point above 15 two times per day.
    Flying Leathers
  • Flying Leathers: Casting arcane spells requires knowledge, concentration, and flexibility. Spell casting from the back of a Hippogriff in flight requires much more. This suit of flying leathers meets the necessary weight, strength, and flexibility requirements and has additional enhancements to protect its wearer from the dangers of tempermental steeds.
  • Thayan Dueling Leathers: The merchant Urkonus thought that rogues with arcane interests would benefit greatly - and he could profit greatly - from leather armor designed to be exceptionally light and flexible. He had this armor commissioned and sold to Thieves' guildmasters under the brand name "Thayan Dueling Leathers". Urkonus was very wealthy when he inexplicably vanished without a trace.
  • Warden of Torm Scale Mail: This mithral scale mail was created for the wardens of Torm. A small group of elite paladins serving Torm. The wardens were known for their blinding speed in battle.  This scale mail provides +7 AC, Freedom of Movement, Bonus Feat: Mobility, Cast Spell: Sunburst 1/day, and Bonus Paladin Spell Slots for Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3

    Wearing ThunderPlate and wielding the
    Rod of Lordly Might and Quickspur's Ally
  • ThunderPlate Plate Mail: This Plate Mail is known as the legendary "ThunderPlate", said at one time to be worn by the Duke of Thunder, Lei Kung. Besides its protective capabilities, it gives its wearer immunity to electrical damage and inflicts 10 points of retributive electrical damage on any non-ranged attacker.
  • Armor of the Phoenix: Armor of the Phoenix is scale mail made of phoenix feathers and red dragon hide, which provides immunity from fire and inflicts 6-12 points of retributive fire damage upon non-ranged attackers.

    Wearing Armor of the Phoenix and
    wielding a fire-axe and Quickspur's Ally
  • Quickspur's Ally: The original Quickspur's Ally was the shield of the legendary paladin Sir Rendal Arceldyn. While the original steel shield was lost, replicas were made from other materials. This replica is made from Darksteel granting it acid resistance. In addition to its defensive power, spellcasting ability, and protection against fire and acid, there is a chance of divine damage inflicted upon an attacker following a successful non-ranged attack on the shield bearer. A successful adjusted reflex save by the attacker halves the damage. Against a good alignment opponent grants 25% chance of inflicting 1-4 divine damage with adjusted reflex save for half damage: 12 + bearer reflex - attacker reflex. Against a neutral alignment opponent grants 50% chance of inflicting 2-8 divine damage with adjusted reflex save for half damage: 14 + bearer reflex - attacker reflex. Against an evil alignment opponent always inflicts 3-12 divine damage with adjusted reflex save for half damage: 18 + bearer reflex - attacker reflex. Quickspur's Ally cannot be used by creatures of evil alignment or with fewer than 5 levels of experience.
  • Elysandes's Armor Set: This set includes the armor, boots, bracers, and cloak of the paladin Elysande who fell in battle against the undead army of the Blackguard Nirriti the Black. Legend says that the pureness of Elysande's devotion enhances the items she wore when she fell. The power of all four of the items are increased when worn as a set.
Silverwand Sundries -  a collection of clothing, jewelry, and other unique items
  • Barrier Amulet: This powerful amulet was crafted by the enchanter Celemon of Calimport in 727 DR. He crafted ten such amulets on commission before jealous rivals killed him and attempted to duplicate the procedure. His colleagues were not as talented as Celemon, and destroyed their laboratory and themselves when a mishap occurred. The formula was destroyed as well. This particular amulet was owned by the elven warrior-mage Pelan Rainwind. It was lost when he was killed by giants in the Spine of the World somewhere around 840 DR. Simultaneously casts Stoneskin and Minor Globe of Invulnerability on the user. The bearer may also cast spells on the amulet to recharge its uses. The amulet will absorb the spells, converting spell levels into charges up to its maximum.

The amulet when worn provides a +2 bonus to Natrural Armor Class and + 2 to Universal Saving Throws.

With Oghma's blessings, Milladolin created magical gloves that steadied their hands and heightened their muscle control. Years later, a young Oghmanyte was caught for thievery - guilty of using the gloves. Word spread, and soon the gloves themselves were stolen away. The gloves can be used by Rogues and Shadow Thieves and provide +6 skill bonuses to Disable Device, Open Lock, Sleight of Hand, and Set Trap.
  • Amulet of Seramon: Gives the wearer various protections including Protection from Spells, Sanctuary, and Protection from Alignment. It also provides +1 saving throw bonus.
  • Seastone Pendant: After years of studying and aiding merefolk the sorceress Robyn de Kenyon was given a pendant allowing her to control water elementals by the the lord of the merefolk. Not as powerful as the original, this pendant allows the wearer to summon a water elemental.

Though their maker was eventually destroyed his hands live on. The wearer of the hand gains +3 strength and +2 attack bonus, and can cast the spells Create Undead and Bigby's Clenched Fist once per day. The wearer's charisma is lowered by 2.

Restricted to monks.
  • Deck of Trumps (bb_it_partyeditor.zip): This usable item can be used to open the Party Editor introduced with SoZ. Use this to summon aid at any time rather than having to travel to an inn.

  • Spirit Eater Recharger: A usable item that allows the Spirit Eater in Mask of the Betrayer to recharge his/her Spirit Eater points to 100 at any time.
  • Ring of Doom: In the 9th century DR the human archmage Sammaster First-Speaker rose to power as a Chosen of Mystra, Goddess of Magic. He exhaustively researched the magic of life, death, and undeath, and eventually abandoned his sanity, turning against Mystra and embracing undeath becoming a lich. For the members of his Cult of the Dragon, Sammaster crafted his Rings of Doom.

Silverwand Weaponry - A selection of unique weaponry. All weapons, unless otherwise noted, are compatible with NWN2, Mask of the Betrayer, and Storm of Zehir. Some items use tag-based scripts to enable certain functions. Modules that do not allow tag-based scripting will prevent these items from working properly.
  • Hammer of Redemption: Legend says that the infamous Blackguard Nirriti the Black led his army of the soulless undead for many years, conquering many lands and kingdoms in the name of his dark god. As his enemies were slain they became undead under his command and his army was unstoppable. Then one night, for reasons unknown, he faced what he had become and turned away from his evil path. Seeking redemption by eradicating the evil army he had created, he emerged from his war tent, mithril warhammer in hand, and laid waste to his own army of the undead. When the battle concluded the army of undead was destroyed, Nirriti succumbed to his many wounds, and his mithril warhammer was forever blackened and empowered by the energies he channelled through it that day. This warhammer channels the turning powers of any cleric or paladin who wields it with each blow. (Nirriti the Black is a character from Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny)

The bearer of Dymondheart is imbued with the strength of the great forest and wields a deadly force against unnatural beings such as constructs, outworlders, and the undead. And the most natural of beings, the elementals are also especially susceptible to the blade, fearing its bearer. The blade gives its bearer the knowledge to use martial weapons in combat. (Inspired by the Dymondheart longsword from the D&D Weapons of Legacy manual.)
  • Flindbar: A flindbar is a club-like weapon consisting of two clubs connected by chains used by Flinds, a race related to Gnolls. It is an exceedingly fast weapon and can be used to devastating effect by Flind warriors.  In inexperienced hands a flindbar acts as a standard club. Those with Exotic Weapon Proficiency have a 75% chance of an immediate second strike after a successful first strike. Wielder's with an unmodified strength of at least 13 and an unmodified dexterity of at least 13 have a chance on each hit of entangling their opponent's primary weapon (modified reflex save). An entangled weapon will be dropped (if droppable) or destroyed.  (Download includes a normal flindbar, a +1 flindbar, and a +3 flindbar.)
    Elanee wielding the Scimitar of the Arch-Druid
  • Scimitar of the Arch-Druid, "Sif's Gift": The history of the Scimitar of the Arch-Druid, also called "Sif's Gift", is largely unknown. It is said to have been forged by the Durin at the request of Sif of the Aesir, goddess of excellence and skill in battle, and given as a gift to a druid of her favor. The curved blade of this adamantine scimitar is etched with unreadable runes that glow with an inner light in battle. 
  • Shock and Awe: Legend has it that a simple weaponsmith forged the dagger "Shock" and the katana "Awe" at the orders of a cruel king who held the smith's family as ransom. Wielding his own blades the smith turned on the king's forces and defeated them, but his wife and child died shortly after having become ill while held captive in the king's dungeon. The smith left his home with his weapons and was never heard from again. But the names of Shock and Awe are remembered to this day. Shock is a +3 darksteel keen dagger. It provides the feat Two-Weapon Defense, causes additional 1d6 electrical damage and 1d6 piercing damage, and 1d6 bonus damage vs. humans. It provides 5/- electrical resistance.

Each of these items is carved with runes that give them additional damage and the ability to automatically return when used. Note: The scripts used with these items are generic.

The staff will absorb the spells, converting spell levels into charges to its maximum. Restricted to sorcerers and wizards.
  • Holy Mace of Disruption: Infused with the spirit of a long lost Paladin, this +3 mace inflicts additional damage on all evil creatures but is particularly deadly against the undead, turning them with the power of a 12th level cleric. It also offers its wielder protection against fear, disease, and level draining. If a cleric or paladin wields it whose divine classes exceed 12 levels then the mace acts at the level of the wielder. Evil characters attempting to equip this mace will incur 5-20 points of divine damage.
  • Elemental Staff of Power: This +3 quarterstaff is imbued with the Elemental Aura property, allowing it to be transformed by its wielder at will from a weapon of fire to cold to acid to electricity to acid to sonic. It also gives off light. (added 10/2014)
The following weapons have a special ability that allows them to be thrown as well as being used in close combat. They automatically return to the wielder.

In addition it has a special attack which allows it to be thrown and automatically return to the wielder.

  1. Hey,

    Since there probably won't be another version of "NWN2 MotB Makeover SoZ Edition", could you combine all the versions as one package so 7 different files don't need to be installed?

    1. I have done that for the OC Makeover and I probably will do so for the MotB Makeover as well at some point so that the patches will no longer need to be downloaded. Thanks for the suggestion.
