Classical D&D role playing that is actually fun!

Storywise, there is some divergence from mainstream RPGs. Your build-a-hero isn't out to save the world, really, but rather to solve a localized problem. This made the game appealing, because I'm getting tired of saving the entire world. Also, the story is more adult-oriented than most RPGs. No, I am not referring to the upstairs adventures in the Neverwinter brothel. Rather, I am referring to the plight of the plague, the manifestations of justice, and the moral implications of the hero's actions. I never did venture into the online world of NWN. I fear it. I know how many a bleary-eyed gamer has lost his or her soul to MMORPGs, so I didn't try it.
Overall, a great RPG that most people should at least try. The plenitude of expansion packs, both premium and community-based, offer an unlimited supply of fun.
