"Look! Coming out of the craft hall, isn't that..."
"Yes, that's her to be sure. Stop staring, Mary!"
"Oh, I don't care. What's she going to do? Come and flatten me like a boy? Gawds! Look at the size of her. She looks like someone lopped off a fire giant's rear end and stuffed it in a suit of armour."
"Shhhh! She'll hear you. Here she comes."
"So what? She can't speak common anyway."
At this point, the strapping young dwarven woman in question strode past the two girls on her way towards Fort Wayfare, paying them absolutely no heed. They were long legs and long legs of no consequence at that. She had more important things to think about. Until now she had no purpose other than wandering in search of a fight. Now she had something to fight for.
"Hmmm." she thought to herself, "Bron said they were in need of timber and iron. I gave those gnolls a good knock, but I don't fancy trying my luck deeper in those Haven mines without some stout dwarves alongside me. The iron will need to wait. I can get oak easily enough though."
Presently, she came upon the still waters of Lake Palden and being in no particular hurry, she decided to take a stroll along its western edge.
"Oh I remember coming here with da when I was a girl." she thought to herself, sighing and staring out across the water. "Nevermind that." She said aloud. "You're in the Crimson Company now, and kin is kin."
Name: Gordy Bluestar
Subrace (if applicable): Wild Elf
Deity (if devoted): Kithairien
Domains (if cleric): N/A
Biography and Description:
Gordy has had a desire to leave his tribe for as long as he can remember. He feels so different then the other tribe members. For instance he loves to collect things that he finds while moving from place to place. The others think he is wasting his time and strength carrying his "useless" possessions when his tribe moves. But he could never bring himself to leave his family when they needed him so much.
A few years ago Gordy started to manifest magical abilities. The elders of the tribe did not approve of his innate ability and discouraged him from using it. Instead he was trained to use spears and bows. He could not resist using his new abilities and has gotten very creative in finding excuses to go off and practice and refine his skills.
It was during one such occasion that he left to practice and came back to find that his village had been attacked. Many lives were spared but the lives of others including his mother and father were not. Filled with rage he vowed to seek revenge for those tribe members that lost their lives. The remaining elders would not hear of his plans to seek out those who attacked them. The threat was small and there was enough of them left to move to a new land in order to avoid conflict.
With nothing in the tribe to make him stay Gordy left to venture on his own and find those who killed his parents.

'Rats! What an odd lot they were. Takin me under Centre t' kill rats. Who goes around killin rats other than small dogs an' hungry street urchins?
'Where's that bloody buckle got to? Oh, by the hells! I jes had it here in front o' me. Under here? No. Of course! Under that curious bug shell; there it is! I'll throw that bloody shell out.
'And bugs! By the hells! they were worse than the rats. Anyone'd think I were aimin t' make a pest queller out o' meself at this rate.
'Right, thread this leather through 'ere like so and... Oh bugger! Too short. I'll need t' get another length.
'Bugs and rats and then bloody ghouls and ghosts and walkin skeletons! If this is what provin me worth involves, I'm not sure it's worth it. Not that I didn't give em a good go, mind you! Heheheh...
'Right this time... Thread the leather through here and then... tie it through here... pull it tight... There, that should do. 'Hmmm, now to sharpen that new blade.
'O' course they weren't much help. Jes stood around mostly, yellin encouragement and watchin me get assaulted on all sides by vermin and bloody horrors from beyond the grave! They were nice fellas though. Didn't even want no loot. Never met nobody fool enough t' give away their share o' the loot before. Heheheh! Ceptin maybe Sirel. They musta realised I did all the heavy liftin. Now, what were their names? There was the knife obsessed one. He was Johnny. And the one with the outlandish, glowing eyes, "Jeeow" somethinorather I think. And the other fella with the wolf on his head. "Fuh", I think he was. What an odd lot. Friendly fellas though.
'Now, where's that blade got to?'
Is it him!
Yep its that scum dwarf! I'd recognize that beard and foul glare anywhere. We told you never to come back! Get Stort out of your stupid little brain *as he kicks the drunken dwarf*
Lets drag him over here where we can really beat his arse!
*Gum mumbles about wanting to get to Hilm for an emerald trip (//thur 1am est)
*they both laugh and poor their beers on him*
Go back to sleep *punches him* where you can keep dat dream goin.
After we're done we'll toss him out by one of the ravenloft boats...nobodys checked those for years.
I thought I would hop back online here after many, many years away (and spending some time on a NWN2 server in between) - with the current pandemic going on I find myself with a lot more time at home these days!
This is a message mainly to say hi and also to ask if there is a particular time/ day where the server has a few people logged in? I am in the UK and so timings have always been difficult, but as I said, lots of time on my hands so I'm able to be logged on into the small hours of the morning if that will help.
If anyone remembers Karn/ Deon/ Elzhabehl you might find them hanging around again now (particularly Karn who was always my favourite!). I'm looking forward to getting back into this community that I've never been quite able to forget even after all these years - see you soon!
Available for CDQs only at this point!!!
Rules and guidelines:
What to expect and not to expect on my quests?
How often and when do I run quests?
Even though I set some rules and boundaries, we are all here to have fun and enjoy the quests. I work hard to make the CDQs enjoyable for all participants.
1. Gilshem Ironstone - Thhakuk
2. Xiaobeibi – Martlet A Swift
Its been a while. I'm looking to return and am hoping my characters are still here. I talked to my son Mateo and he said I needed to request that they be returned to my account? Can someone point me in the right direction!
Hope all is well with all of you. I see some familiar names on posts!

Greetings and best wishes for the holiday season everyone.
First off as of now a bonus event is running with the Soul Mother being inactive, extra GP and extra XP! I am not going to set an ending date quite yet so just enjoy it while it lasts.
Secondly as most of you probably know, NWN has had a new release and Layonara is still on the old release. I've been preparing for the migration to the new release and It's all ready, just need to test it out a bit more and turn the switch. I'm just holding off until I know most of the community will be ready to move to this new edition. Some older computers may not be able run NWN:EE 8196+ as it's 64 bit and requires a bit more GPU than the previous edition. Either way, we're going to have to migrate sooner or later so I'll buy a bit more time by testing the new version.
All the best,
Hey there, nice to meet you all
Typically play Wizards or Spellsword-types as I gravitate toward magical melee combat.
Fan of Paladin/Blackguards normally as well.
Hope to enjoy playing with you all.
Would be nice to see a different color set and animation linked to the Cleric's deity, to give diversity to that spell. Example, Beryl could be a multi color prism crashing down on the ground with a blinding light. Vorax could be a Huge blood red Axe that swipes down (don't know if that's feasible) etc. I know there's different Animation available for GM's entrances, and they are customizable, maybe that system could be adapted for the Hammer of God spell?

I have it on both PC and Mac, I'll test it!!!
Hello to the World!
Layonara has a long and rich history, as we have been up and going nearly since NWN went live! We are a quiet little community these days but we’re happy to have you here! If you are here to collect the token, you’ll find it not far from the spawn point for new characters. We do hope you’ll stay and check us out!
Some important details if you hang out with us:
First, we have our own set of custom HAKs. These can be downloaded here: (http://layonara.com/nwn/nwn-downloads). There is also a custom TLK file available from the same page. This needs to be placed in the “tlk” folder within your NWN installation. Instructions on where to place these files are located on the same page.
Second, we will only be running our events until the 16th of July, at 7am Pacific/9am Central/10am Eastern/3pm BST/10pm China Standard Time/(July 17th)12amAEST.
Also, we are normally password-guarded to help keep our immersion intact, as we are a Roleplay server. We’ve suspended our usual level of immersion for the event, because there is A LOT of lore to read over and we’d rather you just jump in and hang out with us, to be completely honest! If you like us, do feel free to read up and stick around! What does our suspension mean? Here’s the breakdown:
Thanks for reading all of this! Our temporary password for play is: nwpad
Looking forward to seeing you on the server!!
~The Team at Layonara
Despite the seriousness of the tragedy, the bar is more packed than ever. Few people are drinking but most people are talking. The price of drink has gone up and not as many people are earning a wage of any kind. People still gather and the talk is grim.Many fret about family and loved ones. Some have an eye to the rest of what is going on.“Ey’ heard some grifters were sellin’ so-called-cures te Jonsey, or tryin te.”“Sellin’ te Jonsey? Rough… they get wha’was comin?”“Aye… Right an left. He ain’t let go of how his wee lass died off in th’ night wif a so-called-cure te help her on.”“*grunts lightly and shakes his head* Ye get what ye ask fer.”
