Lot's broken at the moment. I'd advise not bothering to play it until the gamejam deadline is up at the very least.

So I'm making a fantasy text game using Twine and I've spent the last half hour reading about elvish fonts. Apparently there was/is an effort to create a Unicode Standard for Tengwar, the elvish written script created by J.R.R. Tolkien for the Lord of the Rings. The things people do!
I won't be able to make it to Belfast, but I'm able to work remotely.
If that's cool with you and you need someone else on your team (coder/artist) send me a message.
I'd like to start making games as a hobby. Last year I ran a series of local game jams, and learned a lot from them.
itch.io/galwaygamejam5, itch.io/galwaygamejam6, itch.io/galwaygamejam7, itch.io/galwaygamejam8
This year I plan on doing all of the One Game A Month challenges to help me learn the many different aspects of game development.
I like that this gamejam has a focus on release. For me this will be a great goal to aim towards as I'll have to get really focussed on making a tiny game that is as complete as possible.
I'm not sure what I'll be making at the moment, or if I will be making games with other people.
In any case, you can follow or message me here and on twitter @darrencearnaigh
The Bioware forums for NWN are down it seems. But you can always use the Wayback Machine to reach older content.
The nwn wikia page is decent. Here's some tips on making your first module.
Share your helpful links and resources in this thread! Neverwinter Nights is an old game that has had a large and vibrant modding community, so there are lots of helpful bits and pieces out there.

I'd like to be a programmer for this game jam. I'd like to tackle making a super simple browser game. Like really simple. PONG simple. I'm looking for an artist to make 2D sprites, whatever style you want. I'd like to make something tiny that is also a complete experience - with title screens, victory and defeat screens etc.
No ideas for it yet - we can chat on the day ;)
I've found this kind of thing can sometimes take time out of the gamejam so want to skip that in favour of more development time!
Reply or message me. (I may take a while to respond as I live in distant space-time)
Online participants will be able to take part in the jam, though only participants who pay for tickets will be eligible for the competition and prizes.
The point is to have fun and make a game, but if you want you can get competitive too. The Ludum Dare Jam is on this weekend aswell, it might be a fun thing to try make a game that covers both themes! :D
We will be taking online paticipant submissions and adding them to the jam submissions once voting is complete and the results are in. That way your game will be listed on the jam page with everyone elses.
I hope that answers your question!
