Neverwinter Nights is set in a huge medieval fantasy world of Dungeons and Dragons. This RPG puts you at the center of an epic tale of faith, war, and betrayal. No description can do justice for this amazing game, you just have to try it.

    Certainly the best mmo game for me. Outclasses WOW because you can build your own character and items and you can be your own Game Master in your own server. it is like owning and running your own WOW realm. Also the combat and spell systems are leagues ahead of WOW or other mmos. Essential purchase and playing for all. For Team PvP i would recommend either the NWKnights server, the Heart of Winter server or any one of the pfairly popular pvp servers. While player numbers are down due to the game being released some time ago, the game overall remains deeply polished and largely flawless in execution. beautiful gfx as well.

    Not to mention some of the extensive online RP servers that you can spend several years playing on, such as Aribel, Arelith and Amia.

    This forum post is a step by step guide to installing NWN on linux.

    I’ve written a script based on that tutorial which might be of some use, and I can verify that NWN works as well if not better on 64bit Sabayon and 32bit Ubuntu (Mint) as it did on XP. (Including cut-scene movies by first setting my resolution and then setting the ScreenFlickering setting listed in that tutoral)

    PS. I purchased a copy for $10 from GOG.com but had to get them to email me a set of CD keys in order to play multiplayer.

    I just tried getting NWN Diamond to work with Kubuntu 10.10 and Nivida driver 260.19.06. The game works fine but the movies don’t. It has to be an issue with the Nvidia driver because I got the game and movies to work in 10.04 with the 195 Nvidia driver.

    I just noticed today that GOG.com sells the Diamond Edition for $10…(it may be only Windows).

      The Diamond Edition has the Linux files in it, so it can be installed in Linux.

    I’ve ben playing this since it came out in 2002, and it remains the best farking game I think I’ve ever played. The Diamond Edition costs a mere $20, and the Linux client is on the DVD. Bioware’s website has complete instructions on how to fully install it. Neverwinter Vault has THOUSANDS of FREE modules, many, many of which are top-quality, making this game the most game in a box, seriously.
