* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the original campaign there were numerous exploits to get lots of money and exp by talking to someone to complete a quest objective, then clicking on them without exiting conversation to start the conversation over and get credit for completing the objective again. This game allows you to do the same, but only the first attempt gets you rewards.

Creator/BioWare additionally released a number of "premium modules" as paid DLC. Short self-contained, adventures, many of which were created by community members hired by [=BioWare=], the premium modules became deeper and more complex as designers familiarized themselves with the engine and new tools were developed. The first three, ''Witch's Wake'', ''Shadowguard'' and ''Kingmaker'', were compiled into the third expansion, ''Kingmaker''. Three more were made: ''Pirates of the Sword Coast'', ''Infinite Dungeons'' and ''Wyvern Crown of Cormyr''. While the modules themselves were well received, they required a constant connection to the internet as DRM; the modules in ''Kingmaker'' do not have this feature. When the premium module initiative ended, several projects were left hanging, though ''Darkness Over Daggerford'' and ''Crimson Tides of Tethyr'' were released for free later. [=BioWare=] stopped selling the premium modules in 2009.

The Aurora graphics engine, which debuted with ''NWN'', proved to be successful and enduring, and various heavily modified descendents of the engine were used throughout the 2000s, most notably the Odyssey engine in the ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' series and the Electron engine in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2''. The main engine with modified graphics was also used in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'', though Creator/CDProjektRed has stated they were less than fond of the engine, claiming it responsible for many of the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading technical flaws]] present, leading to them developing their own engine from scratch for the sequel.

* DayOldLegend: Averted here, where a weapon or piece of armor made by in-game will have the flavor text describe it being made by the specific blacksmith, in the current year and for the current campaign [[http://www.gamebanshee.com/neverwinternights/equipment/images/runehammerplus1.jpg but in the same style as the "ancient" equipment]] so it feels like the player is crafting their legend for future adventurers as they play the game.
** Played straight in the ExpansionPack ''Hordes of The Underdark''. The game take place only a few months later and you find the über version of those same items, only they have [[{{Retcon}} new backstories]].
