Is it possible to unlock later chapters without playing through?
« on: September 05, 2015, 03:55:12 pm »


               

Have dusted off the NWN OC for the first time in many years, and enjoying thoroughly; but hated HoU so much that even a decade later am not prepared to play it again.


 


Which is annoying as it would be nice to have access to the smith in the Underdark.


 


Of course, my old save games are long gone. Is there anyway to unlock later chapters so that I can go visit the smith without ploughing through the previous chapter? I want the improved weapons, but not enough to face HoU again!

The Pretty Good Char Creator has a forge that can do much more than the one in HotU.

Wow.  I understand that everyone has their owns tastes, but can't recall on any incarnation of the message boards dedicated to these games such a visceral reaction to HotU.  I've had it nearly a decade and certain parts of it still give me a bit of a goosebump response.

Indeed. It's quite unusual for someone to love OC but hate HotU. Oh well.


 


As Empyre65 said, if you're looking for a forge, there's no point playing HotU, simply download one of the forge modules (like the one linked by him).
