My name is Markus and I hail from Finland, the land of frost and snow! I am a cellist, artist, visualist and a true Pagan by heart. My talents are many and besides art and music, I have extended my skills mainly in game design and writing. I have experience in all these fields and creating something visual has always been close to my heart. I am currently working on with a huge module for Neverwinter Nights 2 called "The Moonlight Path". More info can be found from the link of my homepage as well as from modDB.com forums. Help me in my cause, and I am suren to return the favor.

I am still thinking about it whether I will restrict the players race/gender/class. I can tell that the Evil storyline is restricted only for Male character, due to the storyline's continuation.

I will try to give at least some sort of impact depending on race/gender/class, for it brings lots more interest and vividness to the gameplay.

If there really is a God, he must HATE me from all his heart. How can it be that when I always make the project at full speed and get near the crossing point of actually getting something released and updated, my PC obliterates and leaves me blank. Though, this time it was a stupid scenario triggered by someone else than me and caused a power-surge/malfunction, which naturally jammed my HD ... so, it'll be some while AGAIN before anything happens, save for the brainstorming and endless paper-work.

And God, I HATE *YOU*!!... *******.

Finally answering some questions.

Vicious: Story of both Alpha and Beta (most likely there will be only an Alpha-test, and yes, the name/names will be more according later on)work as individual story to give the feel, atmosphere and sense of what we are working on with and what we are able to create.

They have suggestions and characters that are later re-introduced in the actual storyline. About linearity, it will be quite linear, at least for the Alpha-stage. I really cannot say of the main-story, for it is under heavy reconstruction in all ways.

Story for both ALPHA and mainstory are basically and almost wholly written, but changes comes along as the production goes further and further.

I am not able to give out the story for reading purpose, for it is not in such coherent sense and... well, it's totally a secret until you get to play the game anyway. Why spoil the good fun?

And yes, the story and setting relies on fantasy setting with a good and vivid blend of reality, or at least that's what I am aiming for.
This is no children's bed-time story, far from it.

I am always ready for critic and suggestions, so if you got anything to say for good or bad, fire it on, I am willing to read and learn from it.

Thanks for the questions.

And PS: Don't ask (anyone) when I get any updates done or how things are going, for there is a massive problem and malfunction of the project at the moment, due to unexpected data-loss and partially destroyed computer I work the project on with. Life hates my efforts, I'll wager... just to mention now so, everyone knows ;P

Well, Swedishplayer-97 (and props for your ultimately retarded user-name), none of the girls depicted in the picture aren't even really pretty. And if I had to comment on the far-left girl, she doesn't even stand out as a "real babe" or a "beauty". I've seen much better looking girls in Finland than any of those in the picture. Sure you got good-looking girls just about everywhere in the World, but in that picture... you got it all wrong, man. Not to talk about that sole brunette who looks like she is photoshopped in the ridiculous "hey-we-got-juice.jpg" picture.

And besides, you're 14. Go to youtube where people of your age go and fight and throw incessently useless comments on every turn.

Support indeed is what I need the most now, and loosing hope certainly isn't even in order, that is if anyone ever thought that anyway. Update is delayed, but still on its way. Got some issues with both the game and toolset - such I never had before, but all of the sudden have - and some of the essentials are still missing from the upcoming news. Just need to keep waiting, as I always have a tendency of asking from you people, which relentlessly puts me under a large amount of shame...

Yes, I've been trying to make the places look so that people would actually live in them, for I use a lot of time in detail when it comes
to indoor areas. You should someday see the pictures of the NWN 1 version of The Moonlight Path, the amount of detail in in- and outdoor areas was stupendous, even if I do say so myself. Don't ask why I didn't finish it, or at least the first part, for NWN 1 ....simply because I was stupid.
