A long, long time ago (2005), I was contracted by Bioware to develop a premium module for their hit PC roleplaying title, Neverwinter Nights. Unfortunately the module was cancelled after Atari pulled the plug on the premium module service. 14 years later, I’m delighted to announce that Tyrants of the Moonsea has been finished by Ossian Studios and is now available on the Steam store! (Beamdog client and GOG versions will follow shortly.) Here is the official description:
Developed by Ossian Studios and based on the original module by Luke Scull, this new, enhanced version of Tyrants of the Moonsea vastly expands this former premium module by adding 70% more story and gameplay, as well as a large amount of new art and audio content.
The harsh frontier land known as the Moonsea is besieged by demons. A mysterious cult has arisen, bent on death and destruction. Amid the chaos, war is imminent between the powerful city-states and their tyrannical rulers. Accompanied by the dwarf merchant Madoc, you approach the town of Voonlar just as the worst snowstorm of the year hits. You soon discover that only you can prevent the total annihilation of the Moonsea at the hands of a legendary and ancient evil…
Explore the treacherous region of the Moonsea, including the infamous Zhentil Keep! Travel by foot and horse through the dark and mysterious lands of Cormanthor and Thar, and by ship across the pirate-infested waters, engaging in ship-to-ship combat. Encounter monstrous foes of unspeakable power in a high-level adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. As the old Moonsea battle cry goes: “Dare… and beware!”
- An expansion-sized high-level adventure with 20+ hours of gameplay
