''During E3, at our meeting with Sega, we got to meet with one part of the Obsidian Entertainment team and watched them show off their latest game, Alpha Protocol. After our meeting with Sega, we then hustled over to Atari's demonstration room where I got the opportunity to sit down with Obsidian's Matthew Rorie as he showed off a very different game: Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir. Though you might not think much of the second expansion pack for the popular D&D RPG Neverwinter Nights 2, the upgrade fundamentally alters the Neverwinter Nights universe in a very profound way.
The first change that players of the series are sure to appreciate is the ability to finally be able to customize your whole party from the beginning. While previous games allowed you to create your own character, none allowed you to customize your own party. That will all change when Storm of Zehir ships later this year when it introduces character creation for all four characters. Additionally, you can also now play as a Swashbuckler, a "light fighter that emphasizes dexterity over strength," according to Rorie.''
