The nice guys at GameSpy have made a preview of Hordes of the Underdark, which is the upcoming and second expansion to Neverwinter Nights. Here's their spoilery stuff:
In the game's intro, you see the primary villain, Valsharess, hosting a ceremony that reveals your character as the one being that can stop her. In a preemptive strike, she sends soldiers to Waterdeep to kill you before you get too close. You wake up from a dream and immediately notice a drow thief stealing your weapons and armor. The rogue disappears, but more drow attackers arrive. Thankfully, several of your companions from the original NWN and one from Shadows (Deekin, yay!) are there to assist you. After stopping the initial attackers, you must head to the Underdark and face your destiny.
Yeah, because you're so special or something. No one else could ever stand a chance in defeating the villian of this story, just you. Not even those really powerful blokes in the books that BioWare litters throughout their games can stop what's her face. You're just that cool. No, seriously. You are!
Thanks to Taoreich for the head's up!
