Have a look at what Project CARS is up to... 'community funded' Possible to create a proper release, 'NWN' 3.. basically HG POA with new graphics... unless ad&d is buried now. The overall theme need not be specific, it's the underpinnings and modding framework that is necessary... you know, the framework that was supposed to arrive with nwn2..
You would need: -licensing from atari? wizards of the coast.. whichever -programmers... -the existing and past HG administration...
Anyhow, food for thought, I'll probably forget I posted this by tomorrow...

It would be really nice if we could reduce the barrier to entry for new players, while also eliminating some of the engine bugs.
However I am not optimistic that this is feasible. What would it take? We could try to buy the rights to use & modify the aurora engine, or we could rewrite the whole thing from scratch. And all on a volunteer basis?
