Game mechanics

Postby Zabicka » Wed Dec 27, 2006 3:29 pm

HI, is there any site where the game mechanic would be described? I mean numbers. For example Diablo 2 has lot of sites about how it works, AR, DEF, skills, Damage, nad so on. I would realy like to understand the rule and numbers that are behind the game (i like numbers :-) )

Thx for tip.

Game mechanics? I take it you want to learn the rule system that the character creation and combat all work off of? If so, it's based on the DnD 3.5 edition game system....loosely. NWN has a number of changes, but here is an open source look at the basic mechanics of it all.

As the NWN is based to D&D system, the best place to get info would be [url="http://www.d20srd.org/index.htm"]here[/url]. It covers the baisc rules of D&D 3.5, which is the basings of Neverwinter Nights...


EDIT: Seems like Mag beat me on this one... :D

You're welcome. It's overwhelming to go through all at once though. ;)

The things you are going to really want to focus on would probably be these links particularly:

[url="http://www.d20srd.org/srd/theBasics.htm#abilityScores"]Ability Scores[/url]
[url="http://www.d20srd.org/srd/combat/howCombatWorks.htm"]Combat[/url]



@ Kipi, Of course! I'm super. :p
