               Well I'd like to say a big thanks both on the behalf of the Q team and myself. I think I can safely say that both past and present members of the team are honoured by the award. Bit of a double whammy for me, too - I'm slightly surprised (but appreciative) to see Wildlands chosen over the likes of CTP's Babylon and NWNCQ.



A big congratulations to the other winners, too. It's particularly nice to see Ben Harrison recieve a GDA in light of his departure, as he's always been one of the best folks around.

               Happy to have my mod thought the second (or third) best module in the role-playing category for 2009, I extend heartfelt congratulations to the winners.  Well done indeed!

               The Academy for Modding Excellence is pleased to announce new finalists for Neverwinter Nights 1!

NWN1 Fall 2013 Finalists

NWN1 2010-2011 Best Storytelling Module - Finalists

Prophet - Chapter II - The Century of Sorrow by Baldecaran

The Prophet series features one of the most gripping plots  ever written for a NWN module. A  mystery thriller set in a fantasy universe, it is the NWN equivalent  of a page-turner. The PC has a strong personal involvement in the story  right from the beginning and it’s kept up all through the series, never  losing anything of the menace and mystery connected to it. This is  conveyed by the convincing and highly polished writing as well as by the  use of cutscene and atmospheric scenery, featuring intelligently  complex construction and stunning cinematic presentation. Baldecaran makes perfect use  of selected custom music and some of the best tilesets available, and he  manages to exploit their
full potential by careful use of lighting and  well thought-out area design. Every new area is a surprising sight, and  every conversation is interesting and adds to the plot.

The Relbonian Chronicles - Chapter One by Quillmaster

This is a strong story driven module with a good immersion  factor. The attention to detail, area design, well written conversations, cutscenes and last but not least the numerous custom  books, were all impressive features of this work. Relbonian Chronicles is not set in the Forgotten Realms but has an original and  interesting setting with its own
history, pantheon and a mythology that’s  exciting to learn about.

FA1 - Halls of the High King by Udasu

This module has a strong story/plot that keeps the player interested. The polish  level is very good, and there is lots of background  information to be had as the story progresses. It is visually impressive, with lots of attention to detail and a fun romp for low level PC’s. At first glance it may seems more of an hack and slash action module  with only basic story and NPC development, but the care towards  atmosphere, area design, lighting and music, as well as some hidden side  stories and books add greatly to the storytelling experience and drive  the player on with curiosity to see what’s next.

NWN1 Special Recognition Award: ‘Coffeebreak Module’ - Finalists

This is a special recognition category covering the whole of the history of NWN1, for development of a short module that can be played “on a coffee break” (typically under an hour).

Celestial Chronicles Part 1  by Madhenchbot

This short module is a very polished and professional-looking work, and an excellent example stylistically of a dramatic NWN module. The  writing, scripting, cutscenes, structure, pacing, and attention to detail are all flawless. The area design was well done, the story pulls you in  nicely, and all the NPCs had well written believable dialogue.

Science Macabre  by Tempered Moon

Science Macabre is a very well written and dialogue-heavy module that packs a great deal of reading into its short, “coffeebreak” format. Designed essentially as a “portfolio work” to showcase the author’s writing skills, it combines well structured dialogue and conversation options with an intriguing “alternate history” setting that does a good job of
delivering what the title claims: a combination of science and the macabre.

The Sunken Shrine of Ahmenkatja by Jesse Sky

This is a short and enjoyable mini-mod from 2007 that feels just like a  full NWN story, only more compressed.  Its forte is the story-telling, drawing you in with just the right  amount of background information and well-made cutscenes to get the  story across, without requiring lots of reading. But it also features  exploration, combat, puzzles and neat scripting ideas. A good recommendation for anyone who wants to learn what  NWN is about in less than an hour!

Congratulations to all the finalists!
