Current Project: Update the scripting tutorials.
Welcome to the Neverwinter Nights 2 Toolset Site. It is a site that is dedicated to Obsidian's masterpiece Neverwinter Nights 2 and the Electron Engine.
Neverwinter Nights 2 gives you all the tools you need to build your own modules, campaigns, and adventures - create buildings, terrain, script encounters, write dialogues, create quests and items - everything you need to create an epic adventure of your own is included in the toolset for you and any other worldbuilder to use.
If I host anything here that you the author want me to remove then please message me on the forums and I will remove as soon as I possibly can. Please note that kudos is given to those that made whatever I host here and I host it for the benefit of the Builders Community as a whole.
This is a community project so that if you want to contribute something or disagree with the content on the website then please do/say so.
