Dalelands, one of the hearts of Faerûn, is a D&D Persistent World Roleplay server for Neverwinter Nights 2, using the 3.5e rule set. Founded in August of 2010, the goal of our community is to provide a welcoming and immersive environment for roleplay in the Forgotten Realms setting.


Create a custom character, choosing from the many races and classes, and set them off on adventures with your friends and dungeon master. Your actions and choices have consequences that can affect the server world as a whole. Dalelands Beyond is set in the rich and rewarding world of Faerûn, put together by players, for players. We are wholly committed, in heart and mind, to developing our shared world, and making it responsive to all of us.

To play on Dalelands Beyond, Neverwinter Nights 2 is required, as well as the expansion packs Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir.  Buying all three together in the Complete Edition is recommended (comes with Mysteries of Westgate, which completes all official content).  All this can be purchased from the game service Good Old Games. The store page can be found at the image link bellow.  GOG provides a fully-updated product, so no patching is required. We highly recommend adding Skywing's Client Extension as well, as it contains fixes to reduce game crashing and adds the utility of a reply function for speaking to other players directly. If you run into technical issues, try running the game in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3. This is an adult server, and we believe in treating our players like adults. For that reason, all manner of serious roleplay is acceptable here, and all roleplay can result in consequences for both your character and the world - both beneficial and harmful.

All server-specific files will be automatically downloaded to your documents folder when connecting to the server and will be updated automatically on subsequent visits. You can find detailed installation and troubleshooting instructions on the page below.

You can bypass the account authentication by editing the "Hosts" file. It is located here: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc (Win 7 32bits). First make a backup and then open the "hosts" file with notepad. Add these two lines of text at the bottom: nw2master.bioware.com nwn2.master.gamespy.com
Then save the file and close.


For any personal assistance you can call us or access our live text chat via Discord. Our Discord server can be found on the main menu of this website or via this link. Once there, navigate to the text channel "#request-assistance" and describe to us whatever issue you may be experiencing with the game or the server. Our first available community manager will reach out to you as soon as possible, unless other community members beat us to it!

Welcome and enjoy your stay
