INTRODUCTION:

       ALOE is the sequel to RTS - Harvest of Souls and the first module to be designed based upon the RTSA - Scripting Package.    ALOE will use extensive amounts of scripts, conversations, items, etc. that do not come with the RTSA Scripting Package.     This will be a shining example of what can be done with that package and a lot of extra work.

      ALOE will use quite a number of hak packs.  These hak packs add atmosphere and are purely in the form of placeables, creatures, some clothing, and some item haks.   This module is being 100% focused on to make it the single most exciting NWN module made to the time of its release.   We fully expect it to be immensely popular and infinitely replayable.

At this time many of the portions of what we are doing with this module will be kept secret.

However, if you take Harvest of Souls and add anything you wished would have been in it then there is a good chance it will be in ALOE.   ALOE stands for A Little Of Everything.

ALOE will have 10 teams
Numerous guilds
Numerous NPC factions that move about the world and react to changing events
3 different major plots (only 1 active per game)
Multiple random plots
Resources: Mana, Ore, Wood, Food, Souls, Gold, Some teams must dominate trees and protect them
