Dark Sun MMO in production stage


#1

Hi, I speak on behalf a group creating the new NWN Dark Sun game; the spiritual successor or Athas Reborn and Crimson Sands. The game will include all city-states, sorcerer kings, and official adventures, including novels. Needless to say, it’s going to be free to play.

This is a small team of volunteers who pulled themselves from their bootstraps to make this project possible. It’s not complete yet; which is why we’d appreciate it if any of you guys considered joining us.

We look for people who are willing to work on or learn modelling and scripting; this project is entirely voluntary and it’s being done for the love of Dark Sun. We have tutorials available and material to work with. To give you an idea, a character model takes approximately 1 week for a beginner. We already have some races. Once we get past the modelling stage, the easiest part begins; the creation of quests.

City of Tyr:

Dwarf model:

Croddlu:

Kalak’s Ziggurat

Mekillots:

These are some of the things done; there are many more screenshots. If you’re interested, join our server https://discord.gg/jqYSreC

Hi guys, I would love to help out with the project. My biggest question is how you will be allowed to publish this without causing an intellectual property problem with WotC?

You can ask at the discord channel. I’m not informed but I guess the developers are. Here’s the link https://discord.gg/jqYSreC

Thanks for your interest.

We are not creating a game. We are creating a game world with in a exsiting D&D 3d game NWN (Neverwinter Nights). If we where going to create a whole game using a program like Unreal or Unity then we would run into the problem your talking about. However that isn’t the case, we are not selling anything or charging money for anything. You have to buy the NWN game to play our game world. So like I said it a game world within a D&D game. So instead of playing it on the table top we will be playing it inside NWN.

I hope that helps clear thing up for you. We also could use more people to help work on the project if you would like to help just let me know.

If you have any question or want to join the team just let me know, you can PM me here or I’m Tonden#9076 on discord.

We really want to do everything however stuff takes time, so the more people we have who are working on the project, the more we can do and get things done faster.

If you would like to join the team and help with the project just let me know, you can PM me here or I’m Tonden#9076 on discord.

Interesting. That should actually work, legally speaking, based on my limited understandings. (disclaimer: not a lawyer nor related specialist.) I’ll be very interested to see a working version of 3.x psionics put into play. Does NWN support 3.x psionics as is, or will that take some creative coding?

The Psionic class has been made for NWN two different ways. We currently have one of the two up and working at character selection. We will need to play around with it more and really test it out to know for sure if we will be using it or the other one. But psionics are a BIG part of Dark Sun so having a good working Psionic class is a must.

Hmm, I’d be interested in assisting a bit. As a hardcore psionics nut, I’d like to see the power point system in action. I have the Gog version of NWN, but not the second one.
