    Some folks from Gamespy stopped by BioWare in Edmonton to see the progress on Baldur's Gate II and Neverwinter Nights. The report is an interesting read, offering some clues about the development of both games, but with some exciting details from Baldur's Gate II:

    The second place we could visit was the fighter's stronghold that was overrun by trolls. Strongholds are special, arduous quests that are related to each class. For the fighter it revolves around a keep, while the thief can become master of his guild. The final area we could visit was the Underdark, home of the dark elves, the drow. Black, rounded spires, eerie lighting, and cages with human prisoners set the tone well for this unusual locale. By adding the interesting twist that you are magically disguised as drow, you interact with this evil society instead of just slaughtering them. For instance, while having a conversation with a drow female, another drow became upset by her responses and attacked the one I had been speaking to. These glimpses at Shadows of Amn made it clear that the game had a lot of depth, many gameplay enhancements and stunning graphics. BioWare has clearly been developing excellent games and a chance to visit them behind the scenes was a treat.
