“TSLRCM tries to fix to the best of our abilities the issues The Sith Lords had due to being rushed. Containing a host of restored content and fixes many bugs left inside TSL giving you the most polished and best possible chance to get the full experience.”
“A new original story that will be a stand alone as well as cover many lose ends in the Kotor saga which once you finish the RoR Mod you will feel as if you have played the third act in the Kotor trilogy. The game takes place 8 years after kotor2 where you will find the Jedi Order starting to rebuild as they find their place in the Republic that has been absent of the Jedi Order for some years.”
“Joshua Eric Sawyer was the lead creator of Fallout New Vegas, and continued to the support the game by working on official patches, after the team disbanded he decided to make his own mod. For those willing to experience a harder, more challenging Fallout: New Vegas. It also includes several technical fixes and tweaks (particularly to the Karma system), that were not included in previous patches. While it is considered unofficial by its creator, it does provide insight into the aims of the lead developer of New Vegas and contains planned tweaks that never made it into the final release or in official patches.”
“This is a near Total Conversion for Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: Project Brazil adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18. You'll discover a pitched battle between the Survivalist Raiders, the New California Republic, and The Super Mutants, which shapes the politics and events leading to the NCR's invasion of the Mojave. The story takes place in 2260 - many years before the "Courier" awakes in New Vegas, while the Enclave struggles to rise again on the West Coast.”
“Misery Stone is a module for Neverwinter Nights 2 set in the Ravenloft Campagn-setting. The player is stuck in the mist of Ravenloft walking around the land of Firglore figuring out the rules and ways to get out. We hope to accomplish a unique experience within the Neverwinter Nights 2 engine giving players the opportunity to experience both an excellent story as well as new and interesting gameplay.”
“Manta's Pulse is a single-player adventure for Neverwinter Nights 2. A mysterious stranger arrives in Dantris Town, nestled at the heart of a lush mountain valley. Moving with the sole purpose of acquiring an elusive relic, the stranger agrees to investigate a string of disappearances in exchange for the artifact. When the mission ventures into the heart of an ancient hidden fortress, it soon becomes clear that there is much more to this quiet valley than meets the eye.”
“The Realms of Trinity is a complete persistent world set in the Forgotten Realms Campaign setting and takes place 232 years after the goings on in Neverwinter Nights 2. It is a fully detailed campaign. The server is a hybrid Action/Adventure/RP PW that has many challenging and original areas.”
"A patch to convert the censored Version of Stick of Truth to the uncensored version. This applies for both the Australian and European releases of the game."
