Lol so the final part of trilogy is finally going to be finished after all these years. Personally, I'm not interested as I don't have intention to buy NWN EE, and I did not enjoy the first part of the trilogy so never bothered with the second part.

The first part of the trilogy - that was Siege of Shadowdale, yeah? I haven't played it. What didn't you like about it?

Hmm its been a while since I played it so I can't remember the detail but I felt its just very weak (average at the best) in all aspect. The story wasn't memorable, combat encounter design was mediocre, very short adventure etc. I did hear the second part (Crimson Tides of Tethyr) is much better but the first part was so meh it didn't give me any confidence, so I decided to pursue other modules like The Aielund Saga and Tales of Arterra instead.

Let me know your impression on the trilogy if you end up playing them

I may give them another shot sometime. I just felt it wasn't memorable at all compared to modules like Aielund.

Off topic but you might want to try Tales of Arterra if you haven't yet - it feels like tribute to PS:T.

Thanks for the recommendation - I'll add it to the list! Swordflight was meant to be my next NWN module, probably sometime later this year, but I might try this one first out of curiosity.

Tales of Arterra was like a Baldur's Gate spin-off incredible mod what did you think of The Aielund Saga?

I absolutely love The Aielund Saga (you can see that its my second favourite game of all time from my signature)!! I personally thought it is far better than Tales of Arterra.

It has fantastic plot, memorable companions/NPCs with their own lives, interesting world/lore… love it!

I've written a short review on it if you are interested to read:
