Description

The original Neverwinter Nights was the first Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) Role Playing Game to go online (pay to play), and was hosted by America Online (AOL).

Situated in the city of Neverwinter and the more than 20 surrounding regions/areas, the game itself was similar to other official AD&D Forgotten Realms games of its time. As it was an online game it had several additional menus for online purposes, as well as features unknown to standard AD&D games of the time, such as the ability to teleport from one region/area to another.

Although most of the game play focused on role playing with other online players, it is still possible to play the game offline.

A fan-made recreation for BioWare's Neverwinter Nights was available between October 10, 2002 and July 31, 2012. In June 2012, a single-player conversion to SSI's construction kit Unlimited Adventures was released.
