Another new creature is the quelzarn, a sea monster that is unique to the Dragon Coast region. Thought to be only a legend over 1,000 years ago, many of these colossal eel-like nightmares now lair in and around the harbor of Westgate. Due to unwary sailors being plucked from ship decks, the quelzarn has gained the nickname of "Westgate's Sea-Food Sampler".
In deciding to do a city-based adventure, we quickly realized that a system of sewers would be absolutely necessary to fill out the areas below ground. Unfortunately, unlike NWN1, there wasn't a sewer tileset in NWN2, so we had to create one ourselves. We decided to be somewhat adventurous in our scope in order to give our level designers a greater amount of flexibility to create some very unique-looking areas. So, the sewer tileset has round tunnels, large open areas, small-sized rooms, and pits with bridges, as well as hallways with and without floors (so the pits and chasms can be flooded with water). Topping this off is a set of placeable pipes that will give areas that traditional sewer-like quality.
