Hail and welcome friend! This website is dedicated to that mid 80's craze...The Bard's Tale. More specifically to the Neverwinter Nights module my friend and I are working on. It is loosely based mind you so you may not see quite everything the same. For the most part though anything you can think of that was in the original three games you'll find here. We've taken some creative license as well...so there's a few things you may not have seen in the originals that you might stumble across here. For example ... there is mention in the clue book of Skara Brae's sister city Hamelon, however, there is no talk of this Hamelon in the games. Also at the end of The Destiny Knight a place called the Castle of Candarr is cited, and yet again...no mention in the sequel to that game,The Thief of Fate. These places may very well show up in our online mod.
There are also links to other pages that have interesting facts on the series as well as music files, cheats, downloadables, and maps regarding the games. I have attached almost every map you should need to this website. However, should you find the information on this page lacking. The links should be able to fill in the gaps.
Also...we have meshed all three games together so there would be a much broader world in which to explore and adventure. There are forums up on bioware's site so that players may post game related messages to one another and to us. There is a link at the bottom of the page that will take you directly to the forums, however, you need a bioware account. It will prompt you for your account info but once you give that you should be at the forums main page. I have also posted both my email and Steve's at the bottom of this page so that you may get in touch with us sooner if need be.
Another note. We will not be making the other planes of existence as found in the 3rd installment of The Bard's Tale - The Thief of Fate. What we did is flesh out the areas like Shadow Rock, The Old Dwarf Mine, Sulphur Springs, etc, and make them actual areas. Feel like you can tackle Brilhasti? Perhaps your itchin for a chance to take on Mangar? Or just maybe your crazy enough to try and battle the mad god himself ... Tarjan. Well ... Good luck my friends and enjoy! Come inside ... reforge the Destiny Wand ... become a power unto your own and destroy the mad god Tarjan before it is too late!
