Lia is in need of raw sapphire!

For any adventurer willing, Lia will buy raw sapphire from you.  She is paying from her own earnings, not from the Saddlebag coffers, so you will be paid the full price of 250 gold pieces per raw gem.

If you go into the Saddlebag Pawnshop, there is a back room for members only located behind the portal.  Within that room is a chest labeled "Lia's Chest".  I have placed 25000 gold in there.  Everyone has my permission to access that chest and take the appropriate amount in payment after placing raw sapphire gems in that chest.

I only want the gem in its raw form, so please don't leave dust, cut, polished or enchanted versions in the chest for payment.

Thank you

          Relaxing in her corner of the Saddlebag Pawnshop, Lia opens a familiar bound book and begins to write.

          In this recent entry, I once again delve into the captivating concepts of destiny and ambition but let us not dwell solely on ethereal musings. Instead, let us revel in the tangible achievements that lie ahead. Mere dreams are pleasant companions, but the true measure of my brilliance lies in my ability to craft a formidable plan that transforms fantasies into reality. Within these pages, my grand aspirations shall find form and flourish like the most enchanting spells.

          Foremost among my objectives is the acquisition of a distinguished title within a Kingdom – that of a Lady who commands not just beautiful lands, but also the hearts and minds of its people and military.  Oh, dear reader, you must understand that I am no ordinary soul. With breathtaking beauty, an intellect unmatched as a wizard, and now refining skill with the sword, I have become a wondrous fusion of talents. I once served the merchant marine, and once again I embark upon the thrilling path of an intrepid adventurer, amassing wealth and acquiring combat expertise. Such endeavors shall surely pave the way for me to lead a formidable army or perhaps even a navy.

          Indeed, some may argue that marrying a nobleman could be an expedient means to secure nobility, but I cannot be content with such mediocrity. To bind myself to someone else's rule would be an insipid endeavor, stifling my ambitions and curbing my potential. Alas, it is an option I must consider, but I shall tread with caution.

          To further my goals, whether through matrimony or other means, I have ventured forth and joined the esteemed Saddlebag Pawnshop – a bastion of prosperity, catering to the needs of daring adventurers. This affiliation shall serve as a stepping stone to amass the wealth required for my ambitions. Moreover, I shall utilize the resources at the Saddlebag to hone my alchemical skills.

          Also, a stroke of fortune smiled upon me during a quest, gifting me a flask of raw magic in liquid form. This potent magic, when harnessed correctly, could bestow immense power upon me. The ingenious Tinks created a marvelous device that converted magical energy into liquid, but alas, it is lost forever. Still, this precious sample in my possession beckons me to meticulously research and study it. With time, my prowess in the arcane arts and alchemy shall mature, and I shall transform the remaining contents of the vial into a spell focus of unparalleled potency. A rapier infused with magic, a gem radiating arcane energies, or perhaps a set of intricate runes etched onto my very being – the possibilities are endless. Such an accomplishment could earn me not only the counsel of kingdoms as a magical advisor but even trepidation from the fearsome Black Wizards. However, I must remember that true power knows no shortcuts, and I must be wise and cautious in my every move.

          Another alluring option beckons: the establishment of a formidable navy that would captivate the covetous desires of a kingdom. My gaze rests upon the enchanting island of Vanavar, where Miranda's own endeavors inspire admiration. A plutocracy, I dare say, offers the perfect means to rise from obscurity. The island's desperate need for a navy harmonizes with my expertise in shipmanship. Moreover, the brilliant mind of Tinks could prove invaluable in engineering revolutionary vessels, unrivaled in all of Layonara. To add to my advantage, Angelica owes me a considerable favor for dispatching the nuisance named Corso on her behalf.

          Indeed, this is but the beginning of my extraordinary journey. Time unfurls like an intricate tapestry, inviting me to seize every opportunity and weave my destiny into a glorious tale. I am destined for greatness, and soon, the world shall bear witness to the magnificent rise of my name.

Thank you for your prompt response Jebediah.

Recently I took a gander within the Angel's Guild Store and discovered that they improved upon their spell stock and through it I ameliorated my own spellbook.

I'm always looking for more spells if you wish to compare and trade or sell more spells.

Once Lia hears news of Angela's further interest, she thinks to herself, 'I wonder how many more favors I can attain from our notable pirate queen.'

She then considers quietly, "Perhaps Eileanora does have reason to fear me.  I will have to start getting cozy with her."

Welcome back Polak!  I'm sure we met at some point in the early days, I look forward to seeing you in-game sometime soon.

Layonara has been beautifully evolving since switching to NWN: EE thanks to the efforts of our current team and the current community is very friendly and supportive as well.

Milty and Lily are also being active DM's at the time, throwing in unique adventures every once in a while for added excitement.

It's a good time to return  ;D

Notices are posted throughout the taverns and notice boards in both the towns of Center and Port Hempstead, revealing beautiful calligraphy in purple ink.

Emeralds for Auction

            In my possession are two of the rarest and finest of gems in thier purest form.  The auction will start at 20,000 tr for each raw emerald.  Let the bidding war begin, it will only last for a week.


((The final best bid before Friday next week after the RR will have the gems.  I should be able to make that RR, so if the winner happens to be there I will give them the gems when we finish the RR event))

Not a huge priority, but I sometimes find myself wanting to examine the lore, forums or any other aspects of Layonara while on breaks at work or maybe on the road (any situation I don’t have a computer with me).  The problem is when I do this, I only have my phone or tablet with me and the top menu's occasionally (more often than not) do not want to cooperate with me, forcing me to select the top option (such as Lore) before being able to select anything in the dropdown, making those menu's completely unavailable to me.I’ve tried working around it, but I can't find any other means to access the other menu's and it’s just overall frustrating when you quickly want to look something up and you know where to look, but the only way you know to get there becomes a game of how fast you can select something after selecting something else (which doesn’t always work even when you think you won).

Liberating SubjugationMy fellow adventurers, I need not emphasize my distaste regarding the chattel of sentient beings, as I am sure many of you share my revulsion.  I am also not so presumptuous as to assume that I could abolish slavery, but I find myself weighing the cost of idle rumination while I carry the potential to do more, however infinitesimal the deed may be.So I ask those willing to join me in Arnax; we will take the roads north through Fort Nesar and as far up to borders of Khul as possible.  We will then roam as far north as feasable until we reach Hilm as our final destination.  Along the way we will engage with the slavers who chose not to emancipate their ill-gotten gains and we will assail their camps and hideouts to manumit all captives.  Once in Hilm I will provide our liberated with enough Truth to allow them time to become self-sufficient.I am willing to hear any advice and information regarding my request for aidLia((I wanted to add that DM aid is not required for this in game.  What my intention is we go through the areas mentioned including caves off the road that could harbor these unsavory sorts, haha, and RP as per normal throughout the adventure having fun.  After that if possible, I would love a bit of DM interaction via forums to help specify how many slaves recovered if any and any other potential RP that can happen after arriving in Hilm.Made a minor change to the note after learning about Khul's borders closing.))

Rumour Has It / The sinking of the Lucinda's Star

((OOC Note: Let me know via PM if the accent is too strong.  I mention this because I want it to be noticeable, but not misunderstood.  If it’s really hard to read what I’m saying then I want to tone it down a bit.))                 Looking quite exhausted and disheveled an elf stumbles upon the small haven of Center.  While passerby’s showed signs of curiosity for her current appearance she beeline's to the Bull’s Eye Inn, neglecting their concern.  She slumps into the first available bar stool and demands a drink.  The bartender queries her, stating that it looks as if she has a story to tell.                “Yah’, head west hyof’ here, hoff’ the coast’f Windjammahs bah.  You will find hremnants’ hyof’a shipwreck.”  She pauses to down her entire drink in one mouthful, “Don’t know hef’ thah’ will be ‘nough drink’n the wohld’ foh’ meh hright’ now.”                As the evening progresses her story continues, telling all who would listen.                “Hyi’ was the ships Quartermastah’…  Wasah’ good crew, but hyonleh Hyi’ mahdit’.  Weh’ were hyattacked’ yeh’ seh’.  Wizahds’ feh’ sure.  Two ship’s yeh’ seh’, well hyorganized.”                “The Lucindah’s Stah’.  Weh’ were supplyin’ goods hyof’ magical nachah’, supposed teh’ beh’in Poht’ Hempstead beh’ now Hyi’m sure.”                Day’s go by and she continues to tell her story to merchants, adventurers, anyone who is simply passing by that can spread the news.  Especially those heading to Port Hempstead, she makes sure to keep mental note to eventually write down names and descriptions of those who seem particularly upset about her predicament and/or showing desire to investigate the situation themselves.
                “Hyis’ thah’ wohk’ the’ beh’ had hehr’?  Don’t look hyat’ meh’ like that, Hyi’ve plenteh’ time teh’ grieve.  Meh’ livelehood’s gone hyand’I nehd’ wohk’.”  She was simply directed to the main notice board.
