it open (and spider-indexed) directory
It is this way since a long time tho.. I have come across it several times in the past, even quite some time ago (possibly, years).
I always tought it was for members-only, but I didn't ask until my interest in Dark Sun revamped in the last weeks :)

I recently refurbished the forum software & some things are still a bit weird.  Do we have an open directory or were those files linked from somewhere on this forum?

Well that is awesome.  For some reason I thought you reverted AR back to an older version because the PRC was giving you issues.

I think the last SMF update broke the forums.  I will try to get them fixed / re-created as son as I have time.

After much fighting and research, I was able to successfully install Athas Reborn into Neverwinter Nights. Here's a step-by-step list of instructions of how I did it, to the best of my recollection. Please post corrections or suggestions for improvement in the comments.

(The link on the Required Files page should be updated with a link to current instructions; perhaps this post.)
Install Neverwinter Nights. It's available for cheap from If you have a Mac or a Linux box, don't despair; NWN (and Athas Reborn) works great under Crossover.
Update to version 1.69. Yes, the version from GOG already says it's 1.69; run the patch anyway.
Update to version 1.71. This step is optional, but recommended. 1.71 is a community-made patch for NWN.
Download and install the Community Expansion Pack 2.60.
Install Microsoft .NET Framework if not already installed. You can do so through Windows Update, download from Microsoft, or from within Crossover (use 4.0 in Crossover).
Install the Player Resource Consortium's PRC Pack v3.5.
Install the Community Skybox Pack (CSP) v2.1.
(Optional) Install the Athas Reborn Portrait Pack. Just copy the "portraits" folder into the NWN directory.
(Optional) Install the Athas Reborn Optional Voice Sets into the "override" folder in the NWN directory. Delete the current contents of the "override" directory first.
(Optional) Install the Alternate Combat Animations Pack (ACP v4.0) file into the "tlk" folder in the NWN directory.
(Optional) Install the Magic the Gathering Portrait Pack into the "portraits" folder you put into the NWN directory in Step 8.
Install the Neverwinter Nights Client Extender (NWNCX). Follow the directions in the included readme. You'll have to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Runtime first (link in the readme). Crossover users: Don't use the link in the readme to install Visual C++ 2010 Runtime, install from within Crossover. I had to patch nwnmain.exe by the instructions in the readme to get it to work; simply using NWNCX_Loader.exe did nothing for me under Crossover Mac.
Download Worldgate. Make sure you have completed Step 5 first. Crossover users: Copy into the same bottle as NWN.
Open WorldGateClient.exe; click New.
Click "From URL"; enter into the resulting dialog.
Click the button next to the "nwn installation" field and select your NWN directory. Click "test & exit".
Click "check for new files"; the Athas Reborn files will begin to download. It's possible that you will have to perform this step more than once to get all the files.
Almost done! Run Neverwinter Nights and click on "Multiplayer" once the main screen appears.
Click "Create New Account" and enter a name and password (it doesn't matter what; it will be ignored). In the future, you will only click "OK" on this step.
Click "Join Internet Game".
Choose "PW Story" from the Game Type sidebar.
Choose "Athas Reborn 1.69 PRC" and click "Connect".
Click "New Character". You will go through the NWN character creation process, and then another character creation process specific to Athas Reborn.
Once you have your character fully created, you will find yourself in the Grey. You will be given a few options while you are there; one of them is to start your character in Urik. This is the first of (probably) many lies you will be told while on Athas; Tyr is the only option that works.
Enjoy Athas Reborn!

Possibly useful tools:
AR Character Builder Spreadsheet (By Kamiryn / Modified for AR by Jaysyn)
7Zip Archive Utility

If you have never played Neverwinter Nights before, I very strongly recommend that you start a new Neverwinter Nights campaign from the main NWN screen and at least play through the tutorial phase of the regular game. Otherwise you're going to be completely lost when you get to Athas.
