Hoff's will be around the house, building fires, cooking pig and trying to take in the sounds of the Rolex24...any time is good; we'll keep checking for the update to the update.
As I surf around the various video games, I consistently grow nostalgic for the worlds that defined me as an RP player. It is the world, not the game medium, that engaged me. The fellow players, the evolving world lore, the sense of belonging, that drew me in.
I am thankful that these forums still exist, as just a few other persistent NWN worlds still do, so that I may occasionally drop by. With each login of another game and world, it is still compared to the rich entertainment that past communities produced.
I still hold out hope... hold my breath... for a platform that may reunite our collective worldly imagination. Until then, my heart felt thanks to all those that influenced and contributed to my own virtual stories.
May the dragons continue to whisper.
Slow. Measured. A scuff of flicked dust breaks the tap-tap of wooden heels; a shuffle here, a pause there. The fleshy whisper of fingertips across oak. Another seven steps, each holding back just a little.
The sound of a drum - not full, no reverberation, just a tap that fills the space around it like a pebble in a pool. A gentle thump, and the whuff of cloth.
Then, silence but for a shiver of wheezing.
Three stout dwarves are seen assembling at the base camp of thunderpeeks. They claim they are preparing for holy war. All who dare are welcome especially priests friendly with Vorax.//This will start on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. EST (see calender entry but refer to this time if different on calender)
An elven champion, sends word out from Dalanthar that he plans to assault the fortress of the warlord Frindahl."Too long this orcish menance has been allowed to fester in the sanctuary of their mountains. I will exrtact a price from them for their warlike ways, and together we can spread peace to the great lands of Dregar."//Tonight at 9pm EDT

Description:I was introduced to the new saving/restoring spellbook feature. It is a great way to manage spells for different locations and/or group sizes. Switching to a saved spellbook works just fine. The spells I saved are all restored. The spells work just fine after the first rest.However, the problem is that after casting the affected spell and then resting again, some spells do not get restored. Checking the spellbook, the spells are shown as available, alas, if I try casting them using either the radial menu or by hotkeys, they are labelled as zero spells available (see screenshots attached).I think this has something to do with spells granted by the chosen clerical domains. My cleric, Valaria, has the domains good and animal. The spells that did not work for her (after switching a spellbook and resting after being cast) are:lvl 2 - Cat's Grace
lvl 3 - True Seeing
lvl 4 - Stone SkinI did not test lesser planar binding or polymorph self, but I think those will be affected as well.The other spells, not granted by her domains, were not affected by this bug.As a workaround I have to remove the domain spells after restoring a spellbook. Manually added to the spellbook, these do not seem to be bugged.Location:This will probably happen server wide. I only tested it in the Forest of FogsVerified: Reproducable:This occured on several occasions, so I'd say, yes. If more input is needed on how to reproduce the bug, feel free asking me.
Funny how a great server and community sticks in the mind... magical!I'm @PenNPopper over on Albion Online. Still looking for that "fix" of adrenaline rush RP. Not sure if Albion will work out but it has some of the game mechanics I like from NWN.Best wishes to everyone!
Greetings all!Now that the dates are final for the Neverwinter Nights Player Appreciation Days (hereafter NWPAD), we are planning the server’s participation as well! Yay!The event itself runs from July 10th to July 25th. We encourage you guys to go check out the other participating servers. They have some neat little prizes and things you can do (for funsies of course!). I believe there’s going to be some postings (probably linked to from here) to tell you about all the places you can go.
Layonara will be hosting a 7-ish day event during that time period when folks from other places can come check us out. This is how that’s going to work:
We are going to try to run some non-canon events during this time. Right now that’s not nailed down due to the time frame not having been sorted out until just recently. We would also love it if people would coordinate their own player events and post them on the calendar so folks can plan when they might want to jump in and play here. If you can hurry and get them on the calendar we will link to them on our post to the public when that goes up!
We hope everyone has fun! If you have any helpful suggestions for the event or questions about our part in it, please feel free to post below!
Daniel stuffs his pack with picks, chisels, and axes and makes for the Angels store portal.

Hello everyone,A new update will be coming soon. Players will be required to download some new haks and a new tlk file. There aren't a ton of features added yet but the new haks will prepare us to put some more fun stuff in place.Here are links to those files:Update Archive with new Haks (207MB): http://layonara.com/sites/layonara.com/files/nwn/haks/layo_update_4-22-2017.7z (Extract files into your hak folder)New TLK (758KB): http://layonara.com/sites/layonara.com/files/nwn/haks/layonara_v30.7z (Extract layonara_v30.tlk into your tlk folder)You can download them now and it won't impact your playing before the release. Once the update has been released I will let you know which old files you may delete for cleanliness.
Highlights of the Upcoming Release Version 3.70:
Layonara now has its own server on Discord.
We're happy to bring you this new and improved community experience, as Discord brings many tools to our forum and chat that were not previously possible in IRC. IRC will still be working as we use a bot to communicate between Discord and IRC but we encourage you to try out Discord whether it's through the web interface, the mobile app or if you download the application.
Discord also keeps track of past conversations so you can catch up with anything you've missed being discussed. And for the brave among you we can set up some voice channels for you to discuss some things with a mic if that is your preferred method of communication.
To join, just follow this link:
Stay tuned, some more things are coming to Layonara as well!
Just figured I'd drop back in and see how the old place was going, and see about picking up somewhat where I left off! Don't know if anyone recalls me all that well, but it's good to be back visiting at least!
*A small group has assembled somewhere in the Great Forest in hopes of exploring it's riches. Due to some unexpected delays they now have the opportunity to request additional assistance.*//This is mainly a thread for the group (Chakar, Ryubi, Lia, Tori) to decide on the next date and time to reschedule the trip. Ryubi and Corky and do it this Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. est. Is this good everyone? Maybe the Layo Dayz group can reinforce us too!
Hello again good friends,It's been a while again, I hope you are all well. I don't know how to apologize for the character corruption issues we've had over the past while and my poor attempts at correcting it but I've now spent 2 days on a better system and I hope it gives you the confidence to play and not be worried now. I'm truly sorry to each and every one of you for the headaches that were caused, you should have the confidence that things like this won't happen. I also want to thank Dorg from the bottom of my heart for dealing with these issues while I was in another mode.So as I mentioned above, I'm also here to let everyone know a new version control backup system has been configured. All characters are backed up hourly and controlled with version control. This means we can go back hour by hour to see where a character file may have been corrupted and find the last good .bic file.There should no longer be any more incidents of character files getting corrupted and the last known backups being way too old.The original issue of the server filling up and running out of drive space which caused these 0 byte files SHOULD be fixed but I'm not entirely sure, it's hard to test. Either way, the new backup system will keep things much safer.Always lurking,-orth
