NWN: Hordes of the Underdark Details

There's a NWN: Hordes of the Underdark preview on GameSpy with the first details on the upcoming NWN add-on since its existence was first revealed (story). Here's a bit:
Other new goodies include six new prestige classes, 16 new creatures, over 40 new spells, over 50 new feats, new weapon types, new voice sets, new music tracks, and a new item-crafting sytem [sic]. As good as Shadows of Undrentide was, the additions to Hordes of the Underdark look even sweeter. For several reasons, people love playing and reading about all things drow. This expansion pack attempts to offer a thrilling Underdark adventure and allow module makers to craft their own dark-elf tales.

If they want to know how to do it right simply go here:

What?? A game that has no multiplayer from designers who don't understand that pen and paper role playing games like 3rd edition D&D can't simply directly translate over to the CRPG environment. I still have hopes for TOEE because some of the developers @ Troika came from BIS plus they were the essentials of Fallout & Fallout 2. But with some of their recent Q/As and previews, I am afraid it might not be what I am hoping for.

I too was disappointed with Neverwinter Nights. It failed at trying to bridge P & P RPGs to CRPGs. The stories in NWN and SoU were both bland and the the games were simply too easy (Actually the Undead Monk in SoU gave me and my 3 friends quite the fight of our lives). And most of all, these games fell quite short in terms of game time (and yes we did try to be do all the quests and talk to every NPC).

The good old days of BG, BG2, IWD, Fallout, Fallout 2....
