Happy Halloween

The Halloween project is finally done and up on the vault!
I've only had time to check out a handful of the contributions, but the standard is great, and it's pretty humbling to be up there. Major thanks to the BouncyRock team for making this happen (and if you download this for one thing, it's got to be Jonny and Liso's house!!! You won't look at NWN2 the same...). As someone mentioned, the campaign, if nothing else, is a great resource for builders - clever scripting, custom content galore... amazing to see what a motivated group can do in a couple of months, and I hope it is the first of many to come. So people - download it, play, enjoy and vote.
Even in the few I've played so far, it's been interesting to see the variety in themes and ideas people have used. Amongst all the fun, Elysius' mod really impressed me, and took me back to some of the old style adventures. Very well executed. Other real stand-outs for me were Vendalus, JasonNH, BlackRain, Anduraga, Ree&Liso and Dirtywick - and I love the take GPS have on the candy they give out. And if Amraphael's house is a hint of Zork to come, I can't wait - nice set ups in there.
Now, I just have to finish off the rest.... before Fallout 3 arrives in the mail....

Hey Wyrin, thanks for the compliment. I really loved your module, btw. I must have visited half the houses in the Halloween campaign, and the sounds that you chose are the spookiest that I've heard so far.

You gave your players not one but two interactive tales of terror. I enjoyed them both, but the one in the cellar brought much laughter and memories.

Let it be known far and wide that before Jim Carrey, there was Bruce Campbell.

I really enjoyed your Halloween module, Wyrin! Black Death is always cool, and the two different quests were fun. I found the "trick" to be very interesting, and it did almost trick me! Of course, it's debateable whether there was a "Good" solution, as Black Death smugly points out . . .

Thanks for putting the time into it!
