Take a look at this.

There's too few NWN1/2-modules that support cooperative multiplayer. Why? I don't know, but there is a few modders that understand and care to build modules that work for both single and multiplayer. Ok persistant worlds are great but if you want the PnP-adventure feeling nothing compares to co-op LAN-play.

One of my favorites is ENoa4, the author of the Hythum series and a couple more mods for NWN1. I recommend taking a look at his conversion of Keep on the Borderlands for NWN2. It's a a classic low-level "hack them into pieces" mod that brings back those fun moments you had with your friends and a bag of dices around that kitchen table 25 years ago. Even though it's on the computer screen it feels like a real Gary Gygax story should do. The mod does not have the depth found in ENoa4's original modules but hooking up a LAN with your friends (yes it's more fun to play togheter in the same room) and killing time and some monsters is just so enjoyable. I hope he inspires more people to develop mods for NWN2 and that they will do so with both single and multiplayer in mind.
