General Discussion / Still a heartbeat away...
« on: July 17, 2018, 11:26:43 pm »
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.

The Silver Buckle / Footsteps
« on: June 10, 2018, 08:48:22 pm »
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.

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.

Layonara Server / Neverwinter Nights Player Appreciation Event
« on: August 31, 2017, 02:06:40 pm »

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’re going to open up the server with a temporary password that is open to the public. (Sorry to anyone using auto dialers!)

  • No character applications will be necessary for the duration of our event. This includes you guys! If you want to just do some kinda fun thing for a couple of days, please feel free.

  • While no applications are necessary, we will purge the characters created in this time frame UNLESS, you a) state the intentions to apply in the character apps or b) apply in the character apps within 30 days of the closure of our event. For those only stating intentions, it needs to be done in 30 days, barring some special circumstances, in which case, PLEASE let us know ASAP.

  • There will be a post specific to the server explorers who might come check us out posted on the forums with the rules of engagement for our portion of the event. Please, please help new folks find that post so that they understand what is happening. Most of them will have found it for the password but we don’t want anyone who plays here to lose their character that they might want to keep and stick around for a while if they don’t see the details.

  • During this period, we will be having a non-canon period. This means, the RP that happens in this time frame doesn’t necessarily count. It frees the new folks from having to read up on lore, it frees you guys of having to worry about how to ICly react when someone introduces themselves as an apprentice of Drizzt/Elminster/Powerpuff Girls/A Rat Named Splinter etc. Just roll with it, though you’re welcome to offer lore information (in the form of where to go read up if they are interested, not the corrective/possibly finger wagging kind of way) via tell if you like. We’ll put out a few more details on this when we make the open post. It is pretty much like it sounds, though please still plan on using IC dialogs and // for OOC stuff.

  • LASTLY! There will be a funsie little collection item that we will be providing. It’s going to be located in the starting area, and you are welcome to grab one if you are participating in the event between servers etc. It’s part of an overall collection that goes between all the servers participating in the NWPAD event.


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!

General Discussion / Layonara is now on Discord
« on: April 10, 2017, 01:34:40 pm »
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!

Introduce Yourself / It's me! Again.
« on: April 08, 2017, 11:47:13 pm »
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!

Layonara Server / New Character Backup System
« on: March 14, 2017, 08:49:03 pm »
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
