NWN PODCAST

This is a historical copy of the Neverwinter Nights Podcast. We did not do the Neverwinter Nights Podcast, but we were on two episodes. (See the About page for more), but the folks behind the podcast were such a great influence to the Neverwinter Nights Community. The podcast series ended with 200, and the site was eventually retired and went away. However, through some resourcefulness (Archive.org) I was able to find a great majority of them, and then I reached out to Brian over on Realms of Trinity (you should really check it out; they’ve created an amazing, in-depth NWN2 persistent world) he was able to get me access to the episodes I was missing (except 114, that seems to be universally missing – and 177, but he may not have uploaded that so I reached out to him for that – waiting to hear back on that one).

Who were the NWN Podcast? Here’s information I grabbed from their site (using Archive.org) to give credit to the folks that did this incredible podcast (note: I can’t verify if said email addresses still work, for those that have one listed next to their name).
