------------------------------------------------
(See bottom of post for latest updates)

What's New In this Version:

-Added Upstairs Bedrooms to the Yawning Portal Tavern and added NPC's in 3 of the rooms with dialogue. ***There is a secret door located on this level that takes you to an Underground tunnel that connects Mirt and Khelben's Home and Tower.

-You can now open the door and LEAVE the Yawning Portal Tavern and walk around Waterdeep's Dock District! (59% Complete)

-Added entire Mansion of Mirt the Moneylender as well as Mirt himself, and can even loan a player gold.

-Fixed 8 Bugs in the Yawning Portal Tavern
-Changed Armor on 'Kyle'Boris' (He HAD Armor that emitted light and this caused a slowdown for players)

-Removed some effects to try to make the Tavern a bit less jerky for lower end Player's PC's.

-Corrected and added new events on Undermountain level 1 & 2. Added the Kobolds and Rats as an encounter.

-Made the Drow that you encounter on Undermountain Level 1 easier and spawn in a smaller number.

-Undermountain Level 4 has been restocked with many new items (Durnan in the Yawning Portal Tavern has been restocked and MANY new items added--as well as new custom made items).

-Undermountain Level 5 bugs with Door opening ghosts corrected (NWN ver 1.28 screwed them up for some reason).

-Undermountain Level 6 has been scaled DOWN due to people getting lost [img]smile.gif[/img] and I've added helper arrows for areas of the map, and added new stuff to this level as well.

- Added MANY secret passages and doors to a lot of levels.
- There are 4 NEW set items added since July 14th 2004, and more are added weekly now.

- There are a bunch of Quests to go on, and I have been working on adding atleast 2-3 per level as well as adding the MAIN plot which will span all 13 levels and will be multi-staged.

- I have tweaked a load of levels, and have converted and added a lot of CEP stuff to each level almost. The levels that will be updated next are levels 6 and 7.

- Level 14 and 15 will are being worked on right now.

- The Gauntlet Levels (There will be a total of three) are nearly complete, and will be released soon! This level will relate to a quest as well.

- Evermeet is a future level that will be added as well. You will be able to enter Evermeent from Khelben Blackstaff's Teleporter Maze level.

- Expected levels for Undermountain? - 30 (not counting breakaway levels or outside of Undermountain levels) So in total, 60 in all.
