Neverwinter trots out a parade of famous faces for its next update

    
9
One of the big advantages of Forgotten Realms setting is that it comes pre-packaged with well-known fictional characters that have achieved some sort of special standing in fantasy geek circles. Neverwinter has been milking those names for all their worth, too, having trotted these celebrities out in previous updates.

With the upcoming Maze Engine expansion, Neverwinter is calling for a reprise of these famous faces. A new dev diary discusses which characters will come back for autographs, photo ops, and quests. Expect to see heavy-hitters like Drizzt, Bruenor Battlehammer, Linu La’neral, Regis, and Makos coming back for this epic story.

Oh, and of course Minsc and Boo will show up to delight their legion of fans. “Now, with a new demon lord and the Maze Engine threatening the Underdark, Minsc and Boo are ready to fight! ‘Pointy horns! Meet pointy sword! AND HAMSTER!'”

Gah, I’d sworn off NW, but now they gotta go and put Minsc and Boo in it.  I’ll probably still stay away because of cash shop shenanigans, sigh.

Durenas Rozyn And from what I’ve heard – correct me if this has been fixed – for all they brag about getting back Trek actors to do voices for STO, they do not have Jim Cummings as Minsc.  Which is unforgivable, IMO.

The Salvatore quest line is one of the very best in the game, and definitely the most fun between 60 and 70. More please!

Rozyn It’s also unfortunate that his face doesn’t look anything like his portrait in BG1 or BG2.

Where goes the turgid stench of evil, so goes the cleansing wind of Minsc and Boo!

A den of STINKING evil! Cover your nose, Boo, we will leave no crevice untouched! *squeek!*

It always cracked me up how they put some effort into Minsc’s face but he still has deck posts for fingers.
