    Introduction:  This guide is for players who wish to create their character
    to look like a monster or NPC found in the game "Neverwinter Nights".   This
    includes skins and portraits for you character.  I created this faq because
    I enjoy playing as a monster or NPC and numerous amounts of players continue
    to ask me how do I look like that and there being no guides anywhere in that
    matter on how to create the perfect monster or NPC playing experience I've
    decided to share the secret on how to look like it.

    Requirements:
    
    1.  Obviously the game "NeverwinterNights" as well as minimum specs.
    2.	Zoligato's NWN viewer found here:
        http://nwvault.ign.com/Files/other/otherlist2.shtml
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    
    Step 1: Custom Portrait
    
    First you'll want to extract the portraits so other people can see them online.
    After downloading the viewer open up the program and go file>open bif>
    NeverwinterNights.  It may be a slow process, not to worry it's loading up
    the file list.  Now on the given list select the package, data/textures_02.bif.
    It'll give you a list on the bottom row now.  These are all of the textures
    in the game.  Scroll down until you reach files beginning with the words po_.
    These are now the portraits in the game.  Now search for whichever portraits
    you want, there will be a preview on the right.  When you find the ones you
    want right click all variations of it, ex: po_penguinH.tga, po_penguinL.tga,
    po_penguinM.tga, po_penguinS.tga, po_penguinT.tga.  Those 5 files make up
    one portrait.  Once you have found the files right click it and extract it
    into you Neverwinter Nights directory in the portraits folder, *do not rename
    them or else other players won't see them online! *, Congratulations you now
    have access to the new portrait.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________
    
    
    Step 2: New Character
    
    Start up Neverwinter nights and start a new game and new character in any
    module.  Set it up anyway you like as this will be your playable monster or
    NPC.  To role-play better characters select a sub race for you character like
    penguin or golem.  Once you reach the portrait selection scroll to the bottom
    and you'll find your new portraits to choose form. After finishing your
    character start up the game offline!
    
    _______________________________________________________________________
    
    Step 3:  Skinning the Monster
    
    Now comes the monster selection part.  When offline in the game press the
    ` button to open up your console on the top right corner of the screen.  Now
    here type in as case sensitive:
    
    
    DebugMode 1
    
    Hit return or enter.   If you did it right it will say success.  Now comes
    the part to skinning.  Type in case sensitive:
    
    
    SetAppearance ???
