Nope. I can't tell you.

What I *can* tell you is that some things from previous NWN sources do reappear, while some things are all new.

Erik,

Saw you signed an agent recently! Does this give any hopes to "Whisper" seeing a bookshelf near me??

Interesting.

Oh, and I want to thank you, Erik, for some of your rather lovely tidbits and character aspects that'll help me to flesh out what was, until just this very moment, a particularly unworkable scene for this weekend's campaign session.

If it helps, my hefty work schedule means I'll usually have my lunch break at around three o'clock in the afternoon.

As far as I know, it's a hardcover book and NOT associated with the Essentials line. It should be as compatible with baseline 4e and Essentials as those two are with each other.

As far as writing goes?

Making them empathetic--that is, they go through the sorts of things that real people go through in real life. They have happy moments and sad moments, relief and frustration, love and bitter hatred.

Make them suffer adversity, but rise above it to succeed.

Also don't make them whiny.

That'll about do it.

Cheers
