Northbridge Needs You!

Join the town guard on our Neverwinter Nights server

EuroGamer's Neverwinter Nights server got its first major upgrade today, with the exclusive home-grown Northbridge module being updated to add a number of new areas, NPCs and features. Amongst the changes are some improvements to the lost council worker quest and a noticeboard in the town square to keep you up to date on all the latest additions. The biggest change though is the introduction of the town guard, whose barracks are now hosting a recruitment drive. If you think you have what it takes to join the elite Northbridge Scouts unit, head down to the barracks in the south east corner of town and talk to the Sergeant at the front desk. The town is still locked down due to the on-going refugee crisis, but scouts will soon be sent out to investigate the cause of this sudden influx of frightened farmers. In the meantime, new recruits and prospective town guard members can take advantage of the barracks' unique combat simulator, hand-crafted by a team of Gnomish illusionists and technicians to give players somewhere safe to practise their fighting technique without risk of death or dismemberment. To explore Northbridge for yourself, simply start up Neverwinter Nights, select multiplayer from the main menu, then "join internet game". You can find us listed as EuroGamer.net - Northbridge in the role-playing server list, or hit "direct connect" and set as the server IP address. We hope you enjoy playing in our world as much as we've enjoyed building it. Northbridge is intended to be a collaborative effort, so if you have something you'd like to add to our little online world, just drop a line to john@eurogamer.net with a brief outline of your idea. Depending on how much time you have and how confident you are with the Aurora editor, contributions can be anything from a single room house or a new NPC to a complete dungeon complex or quest. Even if you don't have the technical know-how to make something yourself, any suggestions are always welcome. Current items on the wish list range from town guard patrols and a gladiatorial arena to more things for rogues to do and non-alcoholic drinks at the Traveller's Tail tavern for paladins and druids.
