The Role-Player's Guide is intended to introduce new players to multiplayer Neverwinter Nights and give some suggestions and tips for how to get the most out of the experience. Ideas on character creation, how to be 'in-character', some multiplayer 'no-no's and more. Great for 'newbies,' but even experienced role-players may find a helpful hint or two. Not designed to be 'rules' for how to role-play, just some collective thoughts on things that make the experience rewarding and enjoyable.
