From Neverwinter

Welcome to the Neverwinter Foundry Spotlight !

The Foundry is Neverwinter ’s featured toolset that allows players to create dungeons, stories, and adventures for everyone to play and experience.  With the Foundry, you can build your own missions, brimming with quests, non-player characters (NPCs), monsters, role-playing opportunities, and/or non-stop combat, and share them with the world.  Your imagination is the springboard for the Neverwinter Foundry.

The Foundry Spotlight is a community-driven column that focuses on hand-picked, inventive player-created dungeons that allow for action-packed combat, fun roleplaying opportunities, or other unique experiences.  These exciting missions are recommended if you’re looking for a place to start with playing user-generated content, or searching for inspiration for your own future dungeons.

Mission Type: Action, dialogue, combat

Average Duration: 30-40 minutes

Amount of Combat: High

Starts at: Mysterious Traveler, Blacklake District

Mission Summary:

It starts out as just another day in the Blacklake District when circumstances careen out of control!  By the time the day is over, you will be etched into Blacklake legend and renowned as the Slayer!

Testimonials:

“Very cool quest all around and story was great!” – preacherr1

“This is a pretty quick and well-thought-out quest. I played it many, many times in Beta, and it’s only gotten better since then!” – Marlexand

“Good length, loved the story, very good!” – TheWRider

Community Tips:

Anything that we could say about I Am Slayer would spoil its well-implemented twists and turns, so you’ll want to experience it first-hand.

We do encourage you to make sure that you’ve finished up your quests in Protector’s Enclave before attempting I Am Slayer , however, as the quest does require some navigation through the Blacklake District before you really get into it!
