Arghhh! The deadline for the Neverwinter Nights Halloween Community Module is tomorrow!
I took my sweet time creating the interior of a wizard’s tower and now I’m left with no story. I’ve been drawing a complete and total blank for the past several days. It’s writers block I tell you! I need the help of you creative D&D’ers and RPG’ers.
First a little explanation. A group of NWN community devs had the great idea of teaming up and creating a Halloween themed module for the game. It would be by the community for the community. A single dev would work on a spooky town, while everyone else got to work on a single interior. Some devs are simply making a haunted house walk through with ghosts and monsters about, others are making taverns and Inns with spooky sounding brews and foods available, etc.
Now My original plan was to have a small 4 story wizard’s tower wherein a short, spooky, adventure would play out. I settled in a murder mystery of sorts, witha twist. I had the following intro for it in mind.
I managed to get 5 levels of the tower created, but I have no story other than the intro.
My original plan was to have the hammer cursed/enchanted. As soon as the player touches it, the ghosts of the three dead people appear. The problem being, they don’t recall the last 24 hours of their lives, and they swear they don’t know one another. From there each level of the tower would involve some combat challenge, a puzzle, and in the end of that level, reveal another piece of the mystery: Who were the three people killed, who killed them, and why were they killed.
And those are my questions to you! I need a cool story I can drop in here to complete the module and I’ve got two days to do it. I know there are writers, DM’s, and gamers on this board, if you think you could help me in making my tower something interesting and different to try out for the NWN community, please do!
