Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm Of Zehir is the second expansion to Neverwinter Nights 2 and will deliver an engrossing D&D® experience in the tradition of the Neverwinter Nights franchise. Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir hearkens back to the days of the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale franchises by including full party customization, dungeon crawling, and free exploration of a non-linear game world via an Overland Map.
In the aftermath of the defeat of the King of Shadows, the Sword Coast is in the midst of an uneasy economic recovery. Trade syndicates have sprung up to exploit the post-war confusion for their own ends. The player's party will wade into this uncertain environment; in order to increase their own fortunes they can either ally with a syndicate to create a trade empire, or cut their own path through Faerūn by preying upon caravans and selling the goods on the black market. As they attempt to extend their influence, players will become aware of a new faction working behind the scenes: the evil, shapeshifting, serpentine Yuan-Ti.
