Enhanced Edition looks set to deal with the original gameâ€™s deficiency in evil-aligned recruitable NPCs with Dorn Il Khan. Dorn a half-orc Blackguard, driven by revenge and powered by an unholy force which makes him as capable with spells as with his liquorice-black greatsword. Save too many kitties, say Overhaul, and he wonâ€™t be sticking around. â€œLast night's VO session for Dorn had the words Die, Blood or Blade in almost every line,â€ Oster tweeted about the Blackguard. â€œOne page had Die in every line.â€
Elsewhere is Neera, a half-elf wild mage to be found wandering the High Forest after a terrible accident which sees her pursued by the Red Wizards of Thay - unequivocal baddies of the Forgotten Realms. Her internal dichotomy of guilt and whimsical humour is to be provided strong counterpoint by the inner calm of Rasaad yn Bashir, a monk from Calimport with an unusual skillset and, inevitably, his own problems.
