i could be tempted to instal it all on again if that one is any good, just to check it out.

Al, there are at least two attempts at Q1 that I've inspected, and I can recommend one very highly. It is by an author called "Lomar," who does very good work.

Checking the memory banks, I played it online with a buddy of mine, using my 15th-level dwarf barbarian and his 18th-level human paladin. We were a little heavy on combat and light on magic (obviously), but we still had a blast.

It's a fairly graphics-intensive module, so you'll want to play on the best system you have access to. There is one area in particular that featured somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 to 70 foes.

Checking its stats, some guy named "Xaxaxe" gave that module a 10 out of 10 rating on 11/24/2004. So it must be good. :)

The other major Q1, BTW, is by a guy called "Trev," who has done the entire series — Giants, Drow, Demonweb. I have played his Giants series, and thought it was quite good (funny sidebar: we actually ended up doing it backwards ... fire giants, then frost, then hill. So we leveled-up as the adventure got easier :)).

Here's a possible plan to take some of the rust off: just go through the "Academy scenes" in the prelude chapter of the main NWN adventure.

Don't even worry about your character or gathering treasure; just follow the dialogue as the NPCs remind you how to use the map function, the inventory function, the journal function, etc. As soon as it all comes back to you, check out the Vault for an adventure you've never played before.

How true. I think most of us, back in the day, probably had one or more of those weapons earmarked for our characters. It was just the formality of having someone actually DM the damn thing that slowed us all down.

I have played several of the module adaptations in the Vault. Mind you, I don't have much free time so it takes me several weeks to finish anything with size and scope. Usually for an hour or two after the kids are down for the night.

Anyway, you have got to check out N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God. It is awesome. Probably one of the best remakes out there. Stays extremely close to the actual module with a few nice twists. Very, very well done. The U-series by (oraweb??) is also excellent, especially U1.

I played one of the WPMs a couple years ago...I think it was good, but I don't remember who did it.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!
