The second expansion to Neverwinter Nights, Hordes of the Underdark takes you beneath Waterdeep into Undermountain. Undermountain has been contained beneath Waterdeep ever since it was created, but the creator has disappeared and the monsters are fighting for supremacy as well as coming out into Waterdeep.

But that's not the worst of it. The Dark Elves are attacking in stealth. These Drow are killing off various wealthy and powerful people in Waterdeep as they sleep. Waterdeep cannot handle all these problems alone and so they put out a call for adventurers.

After having saved Neverwinter and completing your journey in Shadows of Undrentide, the people of Waterdeep know of you and wish to have you join in the defense of the city. But a defense is not enough... you will have to go down into Undermountain, down to do battle with the Hordes of the Underdark!

The expansion brings you 16 new creatures, 4 new tilesets, 6 new prestige classes, over 50 new feats, over 40 new spells, new music and voices, new functionality in the toolset, 20+ hours of gameplay in the main campaign, and characters can now reach level 40.
