ddmsrealm-neverwinter-to-be-a-nasherOne of the coolest things about Neverwinter is that they have included the program they call the Foundry with the game. Any player can enter The Foundry and create their own dungeons and adventures, set within the Neverwinter game. This is something that Cryptic has done with several other games and something that many Dungeons and Dragons fans wanted.

It has been a long time coming but I have finally gotten around to finishing my first Neverwinter custom quest, “To Be a Nasher”. This is a pretty simple quest designed around the idea that one of the local Neverwinter street gangs, the Nashers, have opened up a series of trials to test potential new recruits. If they survive the trials they have the mettle and fortitude to be a Nasher. However, these trials have become so popular that many adventurers have requested to go through the trials themselves, commonly known as the “Nasher Masher”.

Well, this has evolved into both a recruiting tool for the Nashers and a local sport of sorts. Many show up to watch others try to make it through the trials and there is much gambling and drinking that usually accompanies each run.

Now is your chance to run through the Nasher Masher yourself in the new custom Neverwinter quest, To Be a Nasher.

You can find the quest in Neverwinter itself. Just search for one of the following items:


The easiest way to search for a specific quest is by the NW ID number.

Name | To Be a Nasher

After a little bit of time you can search for a Neverwinter Foundry quest by name. This is also a good field if you are looking for a specific type of quest, say a Dungeon or Swamp. Often the names of the quests will reveal what type of quest it might be.
