Despair is a Neverwinter Nights Persistent World.
One can play solo or party up with others from across the world. There is no charge to play my module. You will not have to pay to play, like some other sites. There are over 750 maps to explore, with good and bad cities to visit. We use as a base plus 5 weapons and armor, with a nice balance of immunities and resistances. As you progress you can find other items that increase beyond the initial constraints, offering a nice feel of progress.
Exploration is the key. Some items drop on bosses, groups of monsters, in different locations and some more generally to a range of low, med, high or legendary monsters. There are items of power to be had by all classes, and all classes are equally powerful and playable. For leveling your characters, we use the basic Neverwinter Nights defaults for the first 40 levels. After that, we use the Higherground Legendary Levels system, offering levels up to 60. Beyond that is in the works for xp to be checked by a sage, and items and bonuses given to allow players to have higher AB, AC, and attributes, thus providing rewards for further advancement!
There is a high concentration of undead throughout Despair, and that's why you are here. Either to aid them or smite them. With over 87 playable skins and subraces, you can't go wrong in Despair! For right now we use CEP 2.1 and game version 1.69. This makes for interesting game play as it provides a good foundation for additional subraces to play and monsters to fight.
We offer lots of quests for good and evil, and our conversations are interesting and detailed. Several paths are offered and it's not always obvious which way will point you down the right path. Despair offers a very dynamic, ever changing world where you can enjoy with others or all by your lonesome.
Despair is not for the faint of heart, and might even discourage you at first. What we offer in sometimes frequent death and frustration we offset with wonderful players who help others and who have already been through and experienced what you are feeling. We have some nice players. I will not name them, you will soon know who can be counted on for help and who is dangerous!
You have the ability to own your own business, start your own guild/clan, join other's guilds/clans, purchase a house, or two or three and generally have fun! Put in your time, make friends, save gold and all will open up to you in Despair!
We at Despair welcome you to our world! We are different and offer some things that are only now being used/installed in other worlds. We welcome designers and builders as well as players to experience what we have to offer. Take away what you will, we just wish for all to have fun out there in the gaming world.
Despair offers bonus tokens, hidden and 'locked' items, legendary items that can only be used by toons that make the conscious decision to become legendary, set gear, and other random drops to aid you in your quest. Despair not, young adventurer, as your surroundings offer solace and shelter and even an occasional weapon of power to aid you in killing monsters and otherwise defending yourself.
More will come here, and please feel free to join us today!
