Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

The latest dev blog post is on the two apprentices to the Mad Mage. These come from the hardback adventure book, Dungeon of the Mad Mage and have a cool backstory to them.

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

A new blog post on Expeditions , a new scaling repeatable Undermountain event that is supposed to offer high challenge and reward.

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

I just came across this dev forum post regarding their recent stream... "Enchant exchange bind status: Our current tech does not allow for stores to have a concept of bind status, therefore the exchange cannot be set up to check bound to bound and unbound to unbound. It has a set parameter of a...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

One of the more surreal dev blog posts in the while. It's supposed to be a typical design post about lighting. Instead, it basically says: ⋅ Neverwinter's lighting engine is 6 years old and hard to work with ⋅ I'm the only employee working on environment, making it harder ⋅...

Acquisitions Inc book comes out June 18th!

The D&D book I helped write has been announced, with increasing amounts of information as it gets closer to the release date of June 18th! This is, without a doubt, the coolest project I've done! I've had some of my official work printed before as adventures, but this is the first time I've been...

The last two dev blogs focused on character classes are out: Ranger Wizard Neither has super amazing details. The Ranger has two paths, Hunter and Warden. Both can be a mix of ranged and melee, but the Hunter can be all ranged and the Warden can be all melee. It sounds like Hunter has more of the tr...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

Back from vacation, and an official dev blog on the Lair of the Mad Mage dungeon dropped recently. As with previous end-mod dungeons, it spoils part of the official tabletop adventure. Therefore, this is a spoiler for anyone playing the Dungeon of the Mad Mage D&D adventure. You venture into Hal...

Re: Undermountain: Neverwinter's Biggest Expansion

A somewhat vague dev post on Mod 16 rewards . It's generally straightforward - new mod with new levels, so new rewards with new levels. They do say there are 5 new artifact sets. And, we can earn gear as we do the campaign. But, it looks like it takes rare drops to restore that gear we get. We will ...
