A Neverwinter Nights 1 persistent roleplaying server set in the Forgotten Realms. The setting is focused on the ancient past of the Forgotten Realms, specifically the early history of the Netheril Empire. The main settlement of the server is the town of Hadrian; a border town recently settled by the Netherese on the very edge of the expanding Netheril Empire. Though the Netheril Empire is powerful, it is still in it's infancy and far from the Arcane power of Forgotten Realm lore.
The lands around Hadrian are harsh and the town faces many challenges as it attempts to establish itself in virgin wilderness. These virgin lands are said to be filled with vicious animals, bands of goblins, orcs, and even savage humanoids that refuse to accept a civilized life style. There are also rumors of a great tribe of goblins that still survives just beyond the border of the lands' claimed by the Empire with the establishment of Hadrian.
The town of Hadrian is not without resource, however. It has an established Militia, headed by officers of the Imperial Army. Representatives from each of the three most influential Imperial Houses. A member of the Enclave, the Arcanists Guild of the Netheril Empire. Even an Oracle of Janath is said to call the lands around Hadrian home.
While Hadrian may prosper for the moment, it's future is in the hands of the colonists whom are arriving daily. Drawn from throughout the Empire, they come for many reasons. A new start, a chance to prove themselves, or fortune and glory perhaps. Regardless of their reason, without their support it is doubtful Hadrian will survive in this wild and savage land.
The module makes use of Project Q hak pack along with six six six's wildland tiles, and a selection of hand picked gems from the vault. The hak pack can be found on our forums with easy to follow instructions on how to install them (www.netherilrising.com)
After you have downloaded and installed the haks you can connect to the server by either direct connect: game.netherilrising or find us under pw story on gamespy.
