In what has to be the most ambitious mod I've come across for awhile, this Neverwinter Nights 2 modification is a total remake of Black Isle's original Icewind Dale in the NWN2 engine. In addition to sporting the entire campaign and all of Jeremy Soule's original music, the mod allows for a full six-character party, just as it should. You'll need the Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir expansions to install it, but that amounts to a very small entry fee these days:

Our tale begins here, in the quiet fishing village of Easthaven. One of the so-called "Ten Towns" of Icewind Dale, the tiny community is hardly a town, but rather a collection of ramshackle huts crowded together upon the icy shores of Lac Dinneshere. Here within a dimly lit tavern, a group of travelers sit huddled around a table, swapping tales and making grand plans for the future, completely unaware of the part they are to play in the events that are about to unfold.
