    WomenGamers has written up their own tour of E3, and the article focuses in part on both Neverwinter Nights and Throne of Bhaal. There are plenty of screenshots, and a detailed explanation by Kevin Martens concerning the lack of new romances in ToB. (*sighs* Again?!?)

    Here's a summary of the plot, blatantly swiped from the press kit since co-lead designer/writer Rob Bartel did such a nice job composing it:

    Players begin the official campaign in the northern city of Neverwinter on the eve of a deadly and all-consuming plague. The sickness spreads quickly from its origin in the beggars' quarter, and soon all of Neverwinter is under quarantine and falling victim to what will become known as the Wailing Death. A plea for help is sent to the allied city of Waterdeep, and the powerful wizard Khelben Blackstaff Arunsun arranges for a collection of rare and magical creatures to be delivered to Neverwinter where they might serve as reagents to a cure. The heavily guarded caravan enters the troubled city with great secrecy, but to no avail. Somehow betrayed, the caravan is beset by unknown assailants who succeed in releasing the Waterdhavian creatures into that Neverwinter night.

    At the behest of Lord Nasher and the young Tyrist paladin, Aribeth de Tylmarande, the adventurers of the city set out to recapture the dangerous creatures of Waterdeep, cure the Wailing Death, and unravel the conspiracy of Neverwinter's mysterious betrayers. With the lifting of the quarantine, the players follow the web of betrayals north, in search of answers and the words of a lost prophecy.

    For the full article and tour of E3 you can look here.
