A mod, bordering total conversion for Neverwinter Nights 2, Ex Scientia delves in to more darker aspects of the fantasy and science fiction genres. Occult magic, Evil cultists, Myths & Legends and Cosmic Alien entities from horror writer H.P. Lovecraft pose the greatest significant threat against the otherwise ignorant humans.
Humanity is not defenseless against the horrors, fortunatly enough. Science and industry prevail in the form of steampunk contraptions and clockwork gadgets. And as an inquisitive race, humans are not afraid to dig deep in occult mysteries and few have mastered the art of magic themselves.
This project started with the simple goal to convert the standard d20 system which Neverwinter Nights 2 uses in to Chaosium's BRS (basic roleplaying system) which uses percentages rather then dice rolls. Eventually, after more and more planning, the idea turned from a few scripts in to a design for an online persistant world, though obviously, the amount of work increases as well. The mod changes nearly every aspect of the original game, including combat, magic & crafting. Of course, to get in line more with Call of Cthulhu, the focus will shift and there will be less dungeon hacking and more Roleplay & investigating.
Current open job positions:
