Neverwinter Nights 2 News has conducted an interview with Obsidian Entertainment's Tony Evans, in which the Neverwinter Nights 2 designer talks about his gaming history, his position at Obsidian, and a little bit about the NWN sequel. An excerpt to follow:
Q: Have or do you still play table top RPG's? If so what?
A: I played table-top RPGs whenever I got a chance. Unfortunately, I was an antisocial, introverted geek who had few friends, few of whom could be motivated to play a table-top RPG. So I satisfied my craving for role-playing by writing, by reading fantasy, sci-fi and choose-your-own-adventure books, and by playing a whole lot of D&D computer games and other computer and console RPGs.
Now that I am older, more social and surrounded by other people who like RPGs at Obsidian, I have a lot more opportunity to engage in table-top RPGing. Currently, I am adventuring with several of my fellow Obsidianites in a campaign based on the design for NWN2 that our lead designer Ferret DMs.
