There is another...

News

Five years ago, Star Wars Contrition launched on Neverwinter Nights 1. In those five years since, Contrition went through one wild ride as it suffered setbacks, saw advancements, and settled into a routine of being on and off. The project had times where it was undergoing major reconstruction, and sometimes even going for trying to make something else on another game. In the end, Contrition persisted, but never as I really wanted it to.

Many of you might have come by this page and wondered, "What happened? Where's the mod?" Contrition was one of my first projects with Neverwinter Nights, and in development as a whole. I learned how to program on NWScript and built something on content that had come before. Due to time constraints, difficulties with harder logic issues, and a general uncertainty where the module was heading, the project, as it was, has died. There have been several re-attempts to revive it, the latest one being trusted in the hands of creative and lovely individuals, but the project was doomed from the start, as it was, simply put, held together by duct-tape.

I regret that I may have put too much time into trying to solve a simple problem with a nuclear device. In an effort to try and rebalance the server, I embarked on not one, but two major rebuilds that would try to better integrate Star Wars d20 into the server's mechanics. The project was incredibly daunting, and was unable to be completed. I should have put more effort into furthering the actual entertainment value of the module, and fixing what was there. Instead, the playerbase dwindled, most likely due to the fact that a rebuild meant a wipe, and a wipe would make anything done on the module before then a futile effort.

For those who still want a source for Roleplay in Neverwinter Nights, and the Star Wars Legends universe, there is yet another. A true, spiritual successor to Contrition. Star Wars Sovereignty, a new NWN1 project based on the ideas of Contrition but with a better execution. Sovereignty is Dice-based, instead of relying on the mechanics of a fundamentally imbalanced game, and works to focus entirely on Roleplay, by taking inspiration from the old Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy roleplay servers from 2005 and on.

I wish the project well and hope it can succeed where Contrition could not. While I am uncertain whether or not the project will be posted to ModDB anytime soon, I thought it was best to inform everyone watching this project that the torch has been passed, and there is still yet hope to join in that elusive Galaxy, far, far away.

I want to thank each and every one of those who were a fan of this project, as your support really helped compel me to become better at development, better at understanding what it takes to develop a project, either a Mod or a game itself, and knowing what it takes as I go forward.

At some point in the future I do plan on trying to repair the last version of my Contrition so that it may be run on any server. The day that is set up, I will post it to this mod entry for all to have, though I do not know when that will ever be.

For now, feel free to get your Star Wars Roleplay kick with Sovereignty. The project isn't complete just yet, but I know all the support can really help make it an easier journey to completion!

Thank you,

- The Helmed Raven

Not really sure what to think of this mod... I've been looking for an awesome open-world Star Wars experience while I wait for ProjectSWG to pick up momentum. I will say that combat is a really important gameplay aspect to me and this doesn't appear to have a combat system that I'm particularly interested in. I don't know.

Contrition uses Neverwinter Night's combat mechanics, which are based off the 3rd Edition of Dungeons & Dragons. The goal has been to keep the balancing close to NWN's original rules in order to make sure it is easy to get into. KOTOR1 and 2 is based off this engine, so playing Contrition is similar to playing those games.
