Potential Icewind Dale Expansion?
« on: February 01, 2009, 06:11:54 PM »
I've already poked at Kulyok a bit about this idea, but I found this forum and thought I'd give the idea some fresh air.

Well, it starts about.. eight long years ago(?) when Icewind Dale was first released. I was still a naive but enthusiastic youngling in the Realms. However, I knew the longevity of elves, and as a sort of vague attempt at tying the two games together a little, in my first group I created everyone's favorite elven enchanter, Xan.

Much to my surprise, partway through the game, I found and read the journel of Erevain, and was very much surprised to find reference to his cousin, Xan. I firmly believe we should take this as a divine sign that expansion is called for. ;)

I admit I haven't gotten around to playing the Icewind Dale NPCs yet, but I seem to recall Kulyok mentioning some ties to Erevain in it, so someone will have to enlighten me. But at this point, I would be very interested in seeing Xan, and possibly Erevain as playable characters, maybe among others.

I'm aware that there would be a level gap for Xan between the two games, and that Icewind Dale mods are not as popular as Shadows of Amn, but I bet we could figure some things out. And hey, you asked for ideas.. let's see if anyone here shares my passion for this at this time.

Ah, just encountered the reference in ToB.. so I suppose this idea might not be probable. I will think on it more, but again, input is welcome.
