Welcome to Hidden Tradition – a multiplayer game server using the Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition engine, based on a fantasy version of Earth in the 12th century.
The server runs a recreation of areas of Europe and Palestine during the Crusades of the Middle Ages. It’s quite detailed in many ways – so much so that the world maps we use for the game are actual maps from that period of history! However it is an alternate fantasy version of the Crusades, so it has elves and dwarves and magick etc. in traditional D&D style. While we know that there may not have really been elves and strange monsters back then, people believed there were, so the world of Hidden Tradition is designed to reflect what people who lived during that time actually believed.
Our world is gloriously detailed, with a small friendly community of dedicated players, and it’s a lot of fun. A certain amount of role playing is encouraged, but you don’t have to. If you just want to explore a huge interesting sandbox world and kill things, we think you will really enjoy it.
In order to play on the Hidden Tradition you will need to own Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition – the best way to get this is via Steam. It currently costs around $20, so it’s not very expensive. A nice free addition is the Quality Fantasy Portrait Pack, which you can Subscribe to here. You don’t need anything else apart from that – no extra hakpaks, subscription fees etc. – just log on to the server directly and start playing.
Follow these instructions to get started:
- Start Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition
- Click on the box that says Multiplayer
- Click on Join Internet Game
- Select Hidden Tradition in the server list, and click on Connect
The Hidden Tradition uses server vault only characters – you can’t use characters you already made in another module. This helps cut down on cheating, and means everyone starts on an equal footing. Your character is also automatically saved on the server when you leave, or every time you rest within the game.
We look forward to seeing you in our world!
