Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir E3 Preview

Included within Rock, Paper, Shotgun's Atari E3 article is a brief preview of Obsidian Entertainment's Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir.
Now, I have absolutely no experience with NWN2, so my impression of the expansion pack that it seems kind of good might not really mean anything, but the title does feature some interesting features, from a party system that gives you four main characters (in any situation, such as conversations, you can pick the one which will do the best job) and an intentional effort to make the skills from Dungeons and Dragons that no one ever uses useful (so you can (craft) items from debris found at your shipwreck, or use (spot) to find hidden items).

There's also a new overworld travelling between cities happens in a sort of (Final Fantasy)-esque way you traverse a map with out of proportion features and if you attack an enemy it instances the battle. There are also roaming caravans to trade with, a technique you can use to earn up some extra scratch if you buy and sell in the right places.
