Description
This is the main download you will need to be able to join our multiplayer online persistent world (PW) Ravenloft - Prisoners of the Mist. In addition, you will also need the CEP which is linked to the right.

You can find us in the server list as "Ravenloft - Prisoners of the Mist" or Direct Connect to 46.4.59.55:5123

We recommend that you visit our webpage before joining. You will find it at: http://www.nwnravenloft.com (link is external) - and especially this forum post will be of relevance to you if you are new: http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=862.msg278509#msg278509

You can also find us on Discord at: https://discord.gg/PpB2kS2

About us:

Ravenloft is an original D&D setting based on gothic horror themes, similar to stories of H.P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire etc. The world may easily appear gloomy to people more familiar with high fantasy, but also as having a strong sense of mystery rather than the blatant and obvious.

Mainly our aspiration is to have an atmosphere that's immersing, with stories that reach out to the players as they partake in making them, yielding a rich and enthralling roleplay experience that explores themes beyond just mindless hacking down creatures.

Therefore you should not let being unfamiliar with the setting discourage you. We don't strive to be distinguish ourselves simply by bringing the Ravenloft setting to the list of NWN PWs, and we won't test you in Ravenloft trivia or expect you to read books before joining the server. Our primary goal - our outset - is to create a place where roleplay, in all its forms, thrives.

So what does this mean?

Some might already worry that we are then dedicated to hardcore realism, micro-management at every step and with no chance of adventure and achievement.

This is not what we aim for.

What we want to give you is opportunity. Something you can shape yourself and with others. The opportunity to roleplay in as many situations as possible in as much detail as you desire. We want the world to react in a manner that inspires and encourages you to roleplay. We expect you to act in character and do what you can to not be detrimental to the integrity of your co-players' experience, but we will not rigidly force you into roleplaying in certain ways - partly because we believe that forced roleplay will never be good roleplay, and partly because we also want to have faith in your ability to roleplay, and to encourage you to think creatively and independently, and in ways we might not have thought of ourselves.

This doesn't mean that we'll tear down every 3rd edition rule and go systemless. Balance is needed, because risk is needed for progress to make sense. We may even choose to do things to adjust this balance better, as long as it isn't at the expense of the roleplay. But when we do change things, it's always ultimately for the sake of roleplay.

What you really should expect is a NWN experience that to a much lesser degree rely on out of character mechanics disrupting your roleplay, and instead, more in-character mechanics that further it, providing meaningful material for it. We aren't focused on whether the way you decide to explore the world is absolutely true to real life, but rather we aspire to make the world you explore alive. We want to give you a better opportunity to act in character by making the world act better in character. We want the world to roleplay along with you too.

It should be! Honestly not sure if it's case sensitive though (Ravenloft/ravenloft) but if it doesn't work, please ask for help on our Discord: https://discord.gg/PpB2kS2 (can just pm me there)

I've tried registering on your forums but keep getting an error message. The answer to the question is just "Ravenloft" correct?

Tomcat: You likely tried to join in the period between NWN EE was updated to 1.76 and we had our server updated too. We try to be very expedient about this, but it will usually at least a few hours and sometimes up to half a day due to differing timezones.

To prevent it from happening another time, either set NWN EE to not update automatically and wait for us to have the server updated (right-click game, select properties->Updates), or if you have already updated, go into game properties and select the "Old Stable" under BETA.

So I've been trying to get access to the server which I see on my list but it says server and client versions don't match even though I have all the required stuff? Can anyone help?

Best persistent world ever!

Aaah LawfulJoe, long time no see! All you need to do is subscribe to this entry and then the CEP entry linked to the right. After that, steam should handle all downloading for you.

Ravenloft: Prisoners of the Mist is, in my opinion, the best Persistent World on Neverwinter Nights at this moment. I have sunk countless hours into it, and though I occasionally wander off to try something different or attempt to get into something else, it reels me back in every time. It is hard for me to describe why I am so fond of this Persistent World over others, but I believe it has much to do with the server's atmosphere, which DMs and developers alike work hard to try and help cultivate, as well as the playerbase, who seem interested in putting story first.

It has an overwhelmingly darker tone, being steeped in Gothic horror storytelling traditions, and yet there is humor at times and pockets of light-heartedness. If you're a fan of roleplaying, this server might be for you.
