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.

Trivia

Although you can play this game offline, the offline version does not give you the ability to save your game. It does, however, include a "DM" (Dungeon Master) menu that will allow you to modify various game settings such as inventory, gold, and location.
