Permissions and credits
This is my fix pack for Neverwinter Nights and Infinite Dungeons mod (Nwn EE v87.8193.35-40).

The main idea of the mod is to make each class and fighting style effective with minimal changes.
All changes are not applied in the descriptions of items, feats and spells. But they are displayed correctly in the character’s window.
All changes are applied to NPCs/monsters. Creatures with ranged weapons, spellcasters, monks, traps and dragons are now very dangerous!
If you want to get your own experience of exploration of Nwn with this pack,  I recommend you to read only Short description and do not read the Detailed Description. This pack contain test module which can help you to build and test any possible feature.
Test module is source of all files of this mod. You can explore it in nwtoolset for technical details.

By my opinion Nwn have such balance issues:
-0- Spells have not progression on 21+ levels. It's a crime).
-a- A lot of weapons are useless. Top weapon list: kukri, rapier, scimitar, scyte (crit range+multiplier=5).
In addition ranged weapon can't be "keen" and hard to increase dmg.
-b- Low damage of unarmed monk. Low crit. No weapon slot mean -10enchant dmg -permanent haste
-c- weak summoned and shapeshifter's forms. Some of them are useless.
-d- Low damage of traps
-e- Barbarian's rage is useles when you have +12 str and con.
If you have ideas how to make balance greater - your feedback is welcome.
