Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir E3 Previews

Two more previews have appeared for Obsidian's NWN2 expansion Storm of Zehir. GameZone.
Storm of Zehir will be a low-level EXP pack. Interestingly, players can have four characters in their party and share each character's benefits. If a Swashbuckler (one of the new classes) has a skill that you need and your main character does not, it can be used for your main character so long as the guy that has it is in your party. Doom Guy is another new class, and Atari says there will be others.
And Thunderbolt.
The first change that players of the series are sure to appreciate is the ability to finally be able to customize your whole party from the beginning. While previous games allowed you to create your own character, none allowed you to customize your own party. That will all change when Storm of Zehir ships later this year when it introduces character creation for all four characters. Additionally, you can also now play as a Swashbuckler, a (light fighter that emphasizes dexterity over strength,) according to Rorie.

Another first for the series is that all of the characters in your party can chime in during dialogue scenes. This will surely add more personality to the game, but it will also allow you to use each character's dialogue abilities to the fullest. Some characters are more intimidating, some are better at diplomacy, but now you can access all of their skills to truly shape the game as you want to. Rorie showed off how the new dialogue system works by using a secondary character to intimidate a non-player character into giving up his sword. Suffice to say, I think it will really add a lot of depth to the game.
