VISIT THE OFFICIAL ESCAPE FROM UNDERMOUNTAIN WEBSITE



*** Latest Escape From Undermountain News and Version Info is at the bottom of the page




Latest Version Online: v1.54e 08/6/2003
------------------------------------------------
(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.

- 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.

Don't knock the Kobold. They're not all low-level, marauding thugs. Kobold aren't 'attempting' to come up through the well, they are 'peacefully' entering the inn via a non-standard, though oft-used route They are merely in search of a quiet drink and somewhere to rest, in no way different to the other multi-species patrons, whereupon, in every instance, they are being viciously set upon by the guards, with absolutely no provocation from the Kobold party/parties to justify this brutal and thuggish action.

If you keep denigrating their name, or tarring them all with the same brush, you'll be hearing from the International Kobold Rights Watch and the Kobold Brotherhood.

Kobold have rights too; the basic right to a peaceful life; the right to bear arms; the right to unionise; the right to drink in public inns without being harassed or abused; the right to wash their loincloths in the same streams as everyone else.

We demand these things in the name of Kobold everywhere!
