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.

Stin: "Sooo, would that be D&D, AD&D, AD&D 2nd edition? Which one? If it's D&D, then Elves and Dwarfs are classes are not really races, right?"

I pretty much agree with you, but in the original D&D (I have a first printing box -- 1974) Elves and Dwarves were races, not classes. You're mixing up the original game with that simplified post AD&D version that came later...

Having said that, I am an old time D&Der (first played in late 1974) and I think, for a CRPG, the rules implementation in NWN is pretty good. A paper and pencil game is, in many ways, far more complex than a CRPG. They'll get it all in place one day, but for now, NWN is pretty good.
