View Full Version : SP Neverwinter Nights 2 Interview - 3.5e Rules Focus
Wed, 7th Dec '05, 2:47am
I've got myself a little Neverwinter Nights 2 interview (10 questions), and I'm looking to include some questions posed by the community, so here's your chance.
The focus of the interview has been set for me - 3.5e rules switch from NWN's 3e / 3.5e ruleset in NWN2 in general - so PLEASE don't post questions having nothing to do with that, because I won't be able to use them. Thank you.

"What are the most noticeable differences from the rules used in NWN1?"
"Does NWN2 reflect pen and paper 3.5E skill selection or does it use a custom one like NWN1?"
(Edit: This question is void now, because they have said something in the forums in the meantime.)
"A couple of words about 3E to 3.5E changes in some classes, such as fighter, ranger or paladin. Are all the changes and new features going to be included? Will there be enough opportunity to make use of them (e.g. ranger's fighting styles, paladin's more smites etc)?"

Not sure how good of questions these are as I have not really been keeping up with the news, but I gave it a shot.
"What are some of the impacts the new rules will have on the classes (e.g. on spellcasters, or on the thieving abilities etc.)?"
"Will we be seeing Prestige Classes as in NWN1, or will it be a different system? If so, what can we expect to see?"

How is the Ranger class different between NWN and NWN2, and does the NWN2 campaign contain anything to highlight the differences.

"Whats the status of the implementation of Clerical Domain spells and how many domains do you plan to do?"
"Will there be at least one spell of each SCHOOL(8 schools) in all 9 wizard levels (+level 0 cantrips) to make specialists implementation more viable than NWN#1?"

The deadline for my sending in the interview has been shortened (I have to send it in on Monday), so there's only one day left if anyone wants to get any more questions in!

How the spontaneous casting will be done in the game, will it be handeled like in NWN?
Not sure if it qualify though.

"Has community input been taken into consideration in the transition from NWN1 to NWN2 ruleset?"
"Will the game provide opportunity to use the added, increased or modified character abilities, such as the increased number of uses of paladin's Smite Evil per day or a ranger's multiple fighting style options?"
"What steps have been taken to ensure that the new Warlock class does not overpower the other base classes in comparison?"
"Will players notice any significant difference in combat resulting from changes in the combat system in 3.5E?"
"What are the good things and the bad things about the ruleset switch, in brief?" / "Name three good things and three bad things about the 3E to 3.5E switch."

Thanks, all. Plenty of good questions there.
