Description
[DISCLAIMER: This mod requires content from the D20 Modern Haks version 2.2. These files are not available on Steam Workshop at the time of this writing, though they can be found at the following link: https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/hakpak/combined/d20-modern-haks-version-22]

The Avid & Apathy is an action-focused singleplayer adventure for both original Neverwinter Nights and the Enhanced Edition.

BACKGROUND
The year is 2086. Mankind is locked in a global war with the mythans, mythological creatures come to life. As the war enters its 16th year, a peaceful solution seems more like a pipedream. Instead, the war itself has become commercialized. At the center of this economy are a new breed of warriors who utilize magic and martial arts instead of conventional firearms. Answering to no army or country, these renegade fighters have become the rock stars of our era. With no unifying banner between them, the public has dubbed them "Nomads".

You are one such Nomad, a promising young recruit in a group of established veterans. What begins as a simple mission becomes a desperate quest of self-discovery, where powerful agencies work against you and the greatest enemies you face are your own demons...


PLANNED FEATURES
  • Engage in massive battles through globe-hopping missions, some which take place in real-world locations.
  • Assemble and command a rock-band-like group of fighters with complex moods and personalities.
  • Combine medieval swords and modern firearms with over 50 unique weapons, including grenade launchers.
  • Build up your reputation to gain corporate sponsorships and more challenging missions.
  • Spend your fortune on upgrades for your fully-customizable home base, the Hideout.
  • Define your character with various backgrounds and even a nationality.
  • Grow stronger with each kill through the game-changing Adrenaline system.

This is an extremely early alpha of the module, and currently exists largely to get feedback on the direction of the gameplay mechanics. A large number of planned features have not yet been implemented, the story is not yet complete, and some gameplay glitches may also occur. Admittedly, I'm mostly sharing the mod at this stage just to take a bit of a breather from all the work I've been putting into it, and to try to generate some constructive criticism to get out of the "echo chamber" effect.

As the mod is still in early alpha, combat has not yet been adequately balanced. Save often, and there's no shame in turning on God Mode.

FAQ
Do I need to play the previous module "July Anarchy Prologue" in order to play The Avid & Apathy?
No. Although the two mods share the same setting, this is a completely different story. While the events of July Anarchy Prologue do come into play, they are explained when necessary. Avid & Apathy is a massive expansion of the concepts and mechanics in July Anarchy Prologue, which is why I have chosen not to share the previous mod on Steam.

This mod uses the D20 Modern haks. Does it use the D20 class system as well?
No, the default NWN classes are used, meaning you can import characters from basic NWN campaigns with no conflicts.

Does this mod support multiplayer?
Sadly, no. It was originally intended to support multiplayer, but some features simply wouldn't work with multiple players. If there is demand, I would consider an alternative multiplayer mod.


WARNINGS
  • A human, elf or half-elf character, age 18-35 and at level 1 to 5 is recommended.

  • This module will make changes to whichever character you use, including changing subrace and eliminating their existing equipment permanently.

  • This module was not designed or tested using the Hardcore Rules mode. Since the game deliberately breaks some D&D rules, I would not advise any player attempt to complete the module on Hardcore mode.

  • As of this version, the plot cannot advance past part 2 of the "Chasing Shadows" quest. A mission related to this quest will be available for selection, but accepting this mission will start one of the standard missions, not a story mission.

Thanks! Work on the mod is slower than I hoped but coming along, so I absolutely aim to get at least the first chapter finished before the end of the season.

For some reason I'm not able to add tags to this but just to clarify this is a singleplayer module.
