Leap Year approaches

Had a good time at the NWNPodcast Builders Roundtable, everyone was really cool. While the Lords of Skype tried to smite us, we prevailed and put forth some pretty cool discussion about development technique, troubles, and philosophy. I think without the initial frustration of technical difficulties, we would had much more to talk about. Just goes to show that 97% of all NWN2 builders are cool people, and 82% of people make up statistics on the spot.

Seeing as I only have a little less than 2 weeks before Leap Year and my release date, I decided to quick twinking around with area design for III: Crusaders of Shalihir. I left II: Beneath the Hearleforne in pretty good shape all around. The only thing unfinished is the final confrontation and then any possible encounter balancing (which I never nail until it has been played a few times anyhow).

So as I throw myself back into the Mines of Mount Stoneclef and decide how hard the party will have to fight for their lives after restoring the Anvil's Eye to the Shrine of Pulenthor...I supposed I can throw up a look at my headstart. I'd call these semi-finished.

A Head Start

On a side note, I did finally finish the nwn2dieties.2da entries to allow setting specific choices on character creation and level up. This should be a little more 'realistic' than in the first module where I couldn't reveal any dieties until the end.
