DM-Friendly NWN Module List at Neverwinter Vault
The DM-Friendly Initiative (DMFI) is proud to have supported the creation and enjoyment of so many DM/multiplayer NWN mods in the past and encourages submissions of NWN and NWN:EE mods by their authors.
The review process is designed to provide detailed feedback for mod authors and help provide quality assurance for the DM'd multiplayer experience. The golden rule for DM-Friendly certification is that the module can be successfully run "out-of-the-box" by a new DM in a multiplayer session. This means that a DM who has no previous familiarity with the module can use the included documentation to run it successfully. More details on DM-Friendly certification for modules can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=65&t=978.
The DMFI welcomes community contributors to its module Review Team, the Design Team script projects, and all those who are interested in promoting DM education and training in Neverwinter Nights. Feel free to PM me (Carlo) here at NWN Campaigns with any related inquiries.
I also want to thank the Neverwinter Vault admin for their time and effort in updating the Vault-hosted module list and placing a DM-Friendly mod banner link on the front page, to help interested players more easily find them.
Alcohol Anonymous by Dungajin - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... -annoymous

As you approach with thoughts of a comfortable bed and a hearty meal, you hear voices raised in anger coming from inside the Inn…
Bitter Harvest by Scrotok - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... er-harvest
After passing the trials of many an adventure, the party makes their way toward the city of Sapwick for rest and resupply. As they reach the outlying farmlands, however, they find an early winter threatens the harvest and hangs a shroud of gloom over the land. Up ahead, a palisade has been raised to protect the farmlands, but it is badly damaged in several areas. The smoke from a burning wagon chokes out the familiar smell of the village hearth, and a corpse with two large spears sticking out of its back lies in the road...
"Bitter Harvest" is DM-friendly, multiplayer adventure designed for 4-7 characters of level 10-12. The dramatic, non-linear storyline fits into any campaign and features a mix of action and roleplaying. A DM is required to play; PCs will not be able to leave the "OOC Starting Area" without a DM, and most NPCs are non-scripted. A DM's Guide is included, along with a pre-created DM character for your convenience.

Desert Blade by TOJts - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... sert-blade
In the city of Zindalankh, near the Plains of Purple Dust, you have met with this man who needed help to find a great lost artifact in the desert. You agreed to follow him up as he was willing to pay you a good sum of money and your days of adventures have been rather boring lately. You purchase supplies at the local shops in Zindalankh and takes on a journey into the desert. After two days of travelling you stop at an oasis for the night, the next day you wake up, re-stocking your water supply. Then the short halfling man shows you a map. The old paper shows some location in this desert and... The rest is up to you! This is a one-shot module which can be completed in a maximum of 2 and 1/2 hours. Characters would be level 4 and go to level 6 at the end. Players need at least one DM to run them through this adventure.
Desert of Desolation Series I3: Pharaoh by Moondrake - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... i3-pharaoh
Participate in a tale of ancient prophesies, curses, gems of power, and imprisoned evil. Can you restore the land by breaking a Pharaoh's Curse and earn implements of power in the process? This is a faithful reproduction of the first module in the Desert of Desolation series, with some slight modifications due to limitations of the Aurora toolset. All the lore, texts, layouts, and encounters are as close as possible to the original PnP module.
This version is the new Special Edition release. The Special Edition is the culmination of 7 years work and has been fully updated for the v1.69 patch. Nearly 150 new placeables have been created for the series and there are also new creatures, new icons, new tile groups, new sounds, and a new tileset (most of it made specifically for the series by Hellfire). Much of the new content was intended for the sequel to this module (which was never completed), so you shouldn't expect to see it all used in Pharaoh.
Desperate Measures by Carlo - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... e-measures
You are on death row. You have only two days before you are to be executed. There are up to four others on death row with you. Challenge: survive. This is a multiplayer DM-only module that is designed to be customized for each session. The default setting is Trailsend, Damara in the Forgotten Realms; the DM can change this as desired. Trailsend is a trading crossroads. Your character can be from anywhere, have done anything. Permanent death. Bleeding rules in effect. Limited resting. Because of the scenario, this is for mature roleplayers only. Extensive DM notes included with the module, along with a player guide and designer notes.
Destiny by Hildebar - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... le/destiny
This is a dramatic, DM-Friendly Module. Its purpose is to allow one character to develop an epic backstory that will provide many plot hooks and opportunities throughout that characters lifetime. The rest of the party act as companions, consciences and advisors, as the lead character grapples with the confusion, guilt, excitement and moral conundrums that the module places in his way. Although the adventure is centred on one character, in play, the whole party gets very involved: swept along by the magnitude of the story, and thrilled to be caught up in such momentous events. The story is inspired by a classic fantasy theme: a mysterious personality of enormous significance is reborn, and knows nothing of his past live(s) or what the future holds. The Wheel of Time, the Fionavar Tapestry and Planescape: Torment all share some of the features of this tale.
DMFI 101: So You Want To Be a DM by Carlo - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... want-be-dm

Adventure areas are also included in the module where DMs can create a mini-adventure for players.

EE1: Elegia Eternum (DM / NWCon version) by Stefan Gagne, Felrazor and Ochobee - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... dm-version

It is the full version of EE, including the HAK and voice files. It started out as such a simple quest... there you were, a bold adventurer, seeking a magic staff. There was an inn on the edge of nowhere, with a group of friendly locals willing to help... and then matters got more and more complicated, more horrific. A maze of sorrow and despair unfolded before your very eyes, enveloping all... a maze that sang a song of lamentation for those who have passed away. An elegy. A dramatic story-driven module.
Faerun Survival Course by Carlo - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... val-course
A party of adventurers assembles and is given the chance to speak with NPC instructors on combat strategy, wilderness survival, and dungeoneering. The group then begins its adventure and is hired for what appears to be a routine job, which soon turns into a deadly situation. During the course of the adventure, PCs will be faced with different and increasingly difficult combat situations requiring effective teamwork and strategy. The party will learn how to most effectively use its strengths and avoid its weaknesses, or face the consequences of failure. Ample opportunity exists for roleplay, as thinking and planning are rewarded while blindly charging ahead will lead to trouble.

Player's Guide, DM Guide, Designer's Notes, and Quick and Dirty Multiplayer Roleplay Reference included.

The module is for server vault characters who are issued gold and enough experience to reach 10th level at the start of play. While solo play is possible, the module functions best when two teams are competing to be the first to recover 4 Victory Tokens. This is a reissue of the original LTC that incorporates the material from the SoU and HotU expansions, and includes other refinements as well. A DM is helpful but not required. A detailed DM's Document is included with an overview of the contents of the module and a complete set of game rules.
Legends of the Sword Coast by Lazybones - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... word-coast
This module is a compilation of several of the authors' stand-alone mods into a lengthier, freeform campaign. The material here was originally created to serve as a sequel to the 'Shades of Moonshae' campaign, which takes characters from level 1 to levels 3-4, but this module can easily be adapted to fit into any campaign world. As the module contains essentially five smaller modules connected by a single overarching plotline, it should be easy to add or subtract material as the DM sees fit. The module is best played by a group of 4-6 characters starting at 3rd or 4th level, although the DM can adjust most of the encounters on the fly if necessary, if the player characters are of different levels or numbers. A complete DM's guide is provided.
LTC Epic: Quest of the Avatars by Lazybones - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... st-avatars
This module is in the Lazybones Team Challenge (LTC) series of PvP modules. These modules vary in style and objective, but they all involve competition between one or more teams to be the first to achieve a specific goal in the module. This version is the first to delve into the epic levels, and has players starting at 20th level with ample opportunity to gain levels in the course of the contest. Because of the time required to prepare a 20th level character, this version of LTC allows local-vault characters. However, all characters are stripped of items upon entering the game, and begin with the same allotment of gold to purchase equipment in the starting stores before the start of play. Play involves a team of characters progressing through seven Challenge Areas to confront the Avatars of Forgotten Realms deities, who must be overcome in order to return powerful Artifacts to score. The first team to recover four Artifacts wins the Challenge. DM Guide is included.
Muddles in Millton by Quillmaster - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... les-milton
Muddles in Milton is a module for Neverwinter Nights 1 designed specifically with Dungeon Masters in mind. It is provided as a stage, complete with actors, ready for you to use in your role of Dungeon Master. It will not function as a single player game as a DM MUST be present. Although no pre-defined adventure is in place, a fairly large area has been mapped out with working transitions that will act as your stage. NPCs are also in place, including merchants and their stores. Every NPC has a basic conversation provided so that possession is only required as and when the DM sees fit. Each NPC also carries a book within their inventory intended solely for the DM, outlining basic information to help the DM develop character when interacting with the players. By equipping the module in this way it is hoped that the DM can create an adventure to their own liking with minimal effort, so that no one DM session will be identical to another. You are by no means limited to what’s written in the DM books, in fact, you could go in and write further notes within them so they are present when you run your game, after all, the best tool at your disposal is your own imagination. The title “Muddles in Milton” has been chosen as a generic title to cater for the different possibilities for adventure that a DM may choose to act out within the module. To further help the DM in this regard, it comes with a comprehensive DM guide giving full details as to what can be found within the module.
NW Tavern – Maelstrom Multiplayer: Ferryport Raiders by Kad - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... rt-raiders

A reminder of the past, a glimmer of forgotten evil. Once again the fate of the world may rest on the shoulders of heroes, if they accept their destiny and can turn back the tide of darkness.

Raven by RedR - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... le/raven-0

With each passing day, if he is seen at all - his actions, his words, his mind seems to be falling further from the man we once knew.

Return of Mikaila Chapter 1 by Tom 'Magi' Smallwood - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... ooperative

Like so many other heroic tales, it starts in an obscure place, a small town on the edge of nowhere in a land where man's biggest threat is himself. This module includes an in-game module guide for the DM, giving backgrounds of NPCs and quests, as well as allowing the DM to control the flow of the game on the fly, although a DM is not required.
Return to Torgan's Delve by Lazybones - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... gans-delve
Five years have passed since a band of heroes saved Thane Durgan of Torgan's Delve from a deadly curse and betrayal. But unbeknownst to the dwarves, a darker evil now stirs in the depths of the Underdark far under Torgan's Delve, an evil that will threaten not just the Delve, but far more. This module is a lengthy multiplayer campaign that the author created as a sequel to his campaign series of modules that include 'Torgan's Delve,' 'Drums of War,' and 'Paths of Shadow.'

This module uses the HABD custom bleeding/death ruleset and includes a complete DM's Guide to the module.
S1 – Tomb of Horrors by Ghool - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... -horrors-0
Somewhere in a lost and lonely valley of grim and foreboding aspect, and feeling, lies a labyrinthine crypt. To slay the unwary and uninvited, it is filled with terrible traps and not a few strange and ferocious monsters. They guard rich treasures, both precious and magical. Be warned that the Tomb was built by the demi-lich Acererak, who still wards his final haunt. This being is said to be possessed of powers that make him nearly undefeatable. By all accounts, it is quite unlikely that any adventurers ever find the chamber where his bones lie, for the passages and rooms of the Tomb are fraught with terrible traps, poison gases, and magical protections. Futhermore, Acererak has so well hidden his crypt that even those who avoid the pitfalls are not likely to locate it. Only the bravest and strongest should even consider the attempt, and if they do locate the Tomb, they must be prepared to fail.

The Cave of Songs by Baldecaran - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... cave-songs
It is said that the dark forest of Grimwood is home to the most foul of creatures, and few who enter its gloomy depths ever return. Those who have speak of horse-sized wolves with eyes of glowing embers, of giants whose footsteps make the very earth tremble, and yes, even of dragons that breathe fiery death. But most famous among these tales is that of the Cave of Songs, a howling abyss where even the beasts of the forest dare not enter. It is said that within the cave lives a spirit so ancient as to predate the mountains themselves, a spirit mad with sorrow and hatred. No one knows what riches may be found within its lair. Until now, only the bards have explored the mysteries of the cave, but only in songs and poetry.

Local stories recall the rare but recurring storms of flame which ignite the highest reaches of the overshadowing and aptly named Firestorm Peak every twenty-seven years.

The arrival of a man, named Samuel, claiming to be a Veranite -- the lost race of kings blessed by the Creator of Harthe with divine power -- causes a stir in the country of Anvid. Could he really be a Veranite? Does he serve the Light, as he says, or is he a deceiver? Samuel gathers heroes across the land to do the will of the Virtues -- the spirits of good that he claims to talk to. You are one such hero. But the power of the Dark does not stand still. Who can resist it? You're on your way to Anvid city to hunt down a Servant of Solanor named Tarnn. Having proven your friendship to The Children (i.e. elves) you now have been granted access to their realm. Your group will pass into the realm of The Children - the first non-elves in centuries!

To the Aid of Riverside by Demetrious - https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... -riverside
Lord Noris has put forth word that a reward is posted for information regarding a series of local thefts from the Riverside weaponsmith. You have traveled to the small town found in northern Fauren, just south of the Lurkwood forest, to hopefully collect the reward. Guards of the town saw dwarves leaving the city headed north towards the great Lurkwood forest, but ran into the all too common orcs before retreating back to the safety of the town. The vast Lurkwood forest lies 2 days travel to the north and it is very sparsely inhabited. It is a hiding ground for orcs and thieves and known for a series of ancient tombs below the surface of the forest. A simple robbery or something deeper? A DM Required module: Built from the ground up to be DM friendly. Includes 19 page DM document, game posting document, and customized avatar and instructions to further customize the avatar.

Tome of Secrets is designed for play with a Dungeon Master and 4-7 Server Vault players who are raised to 5th level at the start of play.
