I finally saved Neverwinter!
June 21st, 2004
Well, I finally got back into Neverwinter Nights and finished it. I must say, I had to force myself to actually play through the last chapter. The game is so old by now I doubt that I’m spoiling any thing, but if you’re worried about it, stop reading.
The final battle was anti-climactic. Morag wasn’t nearly as tough as her henchmen. And the whole Aribeth finale was a little disappointing. I was expecting something bigger, some new interesting plot twist. Everything leading up to that point made Aribeth’s turning seem mysterious and magical but it turned out to be anything but.
I guess you kind of expect the interesting ideas to wane a little towards the end. Overall, it was still an excellent game. Better than Bard’s Tale. I’m looking forward to starting Shadows of Undrentide — but I’ll take a little role-playing vacation first. I’m playing through Call of Duty again in anticipation of the expansion pack.
