I have been playing the online rpg Neverwinter for a few months now and from what I understand it is based on the Forgotten Realms books. How closely does it follow the books? Are the same characters still in the game that are in the books? (Lord Nevermember, Makos, Celest, Xuma ect.)

I'm just wondering how closly the game follows the story its based off of. link to game

Hello there. The Neverwinter MMO is based on the Forgotten Realms setting, which encompasses a huge amount of works, not just books. Neverwinter content is approved by Wizards of the Coast, who own D&D and the Forgotten Realms. They put a lot of work into making sure the world stays mostly consistent across all their products.

Neverwinter tends to adapt storylines from the tabletop RPG. For example, the "Tomb of Annihilation" and "Lost City of Omu" modules are closely based on the RPG adventure Tomb of Annihilation. However, while the source material is canon, the actual events that occur in the MMO probably are not.

Neverember appears in several books and other material. Makos, Celeste, and Xuna mostly appear in the MMO, but some of them have appeared in Idle Champions as well.

Neverwinter usually adapts different storylines from the books; it depends where you are playing really, but they usually are 50% fair to the original material. Also, true must be told they usually have their fair share of errors each time they add new material. You can search about the massive fail that it was "Neverwinter: Cradle of the Death God" and how they are still having issues with that. But if you liked, please give it a go the original game; think you will love it, just find a party in your town.
