Eye in the NWN Logo?

Gamer asks about the meaning of the eye in the NWN logo and gets a lengthy response:

...what's that eye in the Neverwinter Nights logo?...

    The eye has a vital role to play in the official campaign, that I promise you. I've made only one post about it in the past, when Lost Dragon turned over his new leaf. Today, I think I'll make another. The following is taken from the frontispiece of that wellspring of information, "Volo's Guide to the North"...

    "Wind by the Fireside"

    So as you shiver in the cold and the dark,
    Look into the fire and see in its spark--
    My eye
    Watching over you.

    As you walk in the wind's whistling claws,
    Listen past the howling of the wolf's jaws.
    My song
    Comes to you.

    And when you're lost in the trackless snow,
    Look up high where the eagles go.
    My star
    Shines for you.

    In the deep, dark mine or on crumbling peak,
    Hear the words of love I speak.
    My thoughts
    Are with you.

    You are not forsaken.
    You are not forgotten.
    The North cannot swallow you.
    The snows cannot bury you.
    I will come for you.
    Fearun will grow warmer,
    And the gods will smile
    But oh, my love, guard yourself well--
    All this may not happen for a long, long while.

    (A traditional trail ballad of the Savage Frontier-- composer unknown)
