Neverwinter Teams up with Acquisitions, Inc. for ‘The Heart of Fire’ Module

Today, Perfect World and Cryptic Studios announced the latest module to Neverwinter – The Heart of Fire, featuring Acquisitions Incorporated. The famous Dungeons & Dragons adventuring company created by Penny Arcade’s founders will be a part of the latest story in Neverwinter. This story takes players across the Sword Coast for an original Acquisitions Incorporated adventure, penned and voiced by Jerry Holkins and MikeKrahulik of Penny Arcade, alongside Amy Falcone as Walnut Dankgrass. The update offers membership access to the new headquarters in Protector’s Enclave, a Professions system overhaul and a new Skirmish alongside this entertaining, original story.

A job faire goes horribly awry in the Blacklake District when Walnut Dankgrass (Amy Falcone) asks adventurers to eliminate the competition who are potentially luring eager prospects away. Aiding the Druid leads to even greater opportunity: an intern trial at the newly-constructed Acq. Inc. headquarters in the heart of Protector’s Enclave. One exhilarating orientation later, adventurers are set loose on the Sword Coast with a mission from Omin Dran (Jerry Holkins) himself, “Find some giant red rubies!” With the occasional “assistance” from Jim Darkmagic (Mike Krahulik), players begin an expedition throughout the Sword Coast that grows more ridiculous with every request: infiltrate a Beholder convention, battle sky pirates in the Acquisitions Inc. airship and rescue royalty culminating in a marvelous new Skirmish.

“We’ve looked for opportunities to work with the talented folks behind Acquisitions Incorporated for a long while now and the stars have finally aligned,” said Gordon Fong, executive producer on Neverwinter. “Many members of the team are huge fans of the world Mike and Jerry have created, so bringing their stories into the game was both an honor and a pleasure. Both fans of Neverwinter and those new to the game have a lot to look forward to in this module. From a witty writing style that’s unlike previous tales we’ve told, to the exciting antics that await freshly minted Acq. Inc. employees, we know there’s something in The Heart of Fire for every D&D fan.”
