CNR Suggestions/Discussion / Re: Fish Oil
« on: July 17, 2019, 12:47:16 pm »
Yup, it's by the farming press in Center, you just plop some carp (or whatever) on there and it spits out some amount of oil. Not sure if the amount is random or based on the size of fish but couple of carp yielded me a tidy little stack of oil.

Development Journals and Discussion / The worn journal of Xobin
« on: June 27, 2019, 10:38:48 am »
Xobin sits on a log by a fire in a small trading town and pulls out his journal to take a few notes.

I arrived in a small trading village today though to be honest, using the word village is a bit too generous. Sure, there were a couple of buildings but it was mainly tents and wagons. As I made my way through town I saw a few folks that seemed friendly enough. I met a lovely Halfling next to a small make-shift shrine. She seemed nice enough but not overly talkative.

The local crier announced a fine place to find some refreshment and gossip was the Leringard Inn. That sounded like the perfect place to get the lay of the land but I walked all over that small rag-tag village and could not find where they hide their inn.

On my way back through the village I saw the strangest thing! There was a great looking Wemic just standing there doing business with the local trader. He seemed a bit surprised to see me but I was my usual charming self and he warmed up right away. I asked where I might find the inn and he didn't seem to know. I complemented him on his fine looking pelt and would you believe it?? He offered me a lion pelt from his bag. To tell the truth I thought it a bit odd and disconcerting that he had the pelt of what I can only imagine might have been one of his brethren right in his bag and not only that but he was willing to just give it to the first Halfling he ran into.

I was about to wish him safe travels when he seemed to remember where the Leringard inn was. It was right about the time the crier started going on about it again (not that the crier would tell me where it was mind you) and that Wemic said I could walk with him to a city where I could find the inn. Not one to say no to an escort by a powerful looking creature I said I'd love to.

Off we went down the road, talking along the way. He had a tendency to talk about himself in the third person so I picked up that his name was Ashi or something like that. To tell you the truth it was a bit hard to understand the fellow but I was able to pick up enough of what he was talking about. He rarely got my puns and jokes though.

After traveling the road for quite some time we came to the port city of Hempstead. He told me I could find the Leringard Inn there but said he was not welcome in the city and the guards would shoot him if he got too close. Fair enough reason to stay away then! I said my goodbyes and thanked him. Before he left he somewhat randomly gave me some maple syrup and a couple other odds and ends as gifts. Never one to say no to something with a free price tag I slipped them in my bag. He said I could find him at Fort Vehl should I want to see him again some day. I may take him up on that, I'm not sure. He seemed eager to take on the likes of ogres and trolls. I tend to find it best to keep those at a distance thank you very much!

Prior to entering the city I noticed a sign enumerating all the unwelcome races and was actually happy to see such a list as Halfling was of course not on it and I can't say I'd be too interested in mingling with the folks that were! Give a greeting to the guards on my way in I entered the city which was a right proper city compared to that collection of tents that called itself a village.

The first thing I spied was not the inn I've been looking for but a templed to Deliar. Considering my luck in running into that Wemic fellow and his gifts, I tossed a tribute coin into the bowl and headed into the temple. I gave a quick prayer at the shrine and then went off to find that blasted inn.

I wandered through the city taking in the sights and finally came to a tavern near the docks. It wasn't the Leringard Inn and the prices were pretty steep for my current purse size. I quickly went on my way and continued looking. Alas, that poor Wemic was confused. Not surprising really as it sounded like he had never been in the city, but there was no Leringard Inn in Hempstead.

Lacking anything better to do I followed the road back to the small village. Along the way I found some crops growing in some well tended fields and no one seemed to be around so I helped myself thinking they may come in handy. Who knows, maybe I'll find a way to make something with the stuff. If I can't find the inn I may need to figure out how to bake some bread!

And that leads me to this log I'm sitting on by the fire, ready to take a bit of a rest. It sure would be nice to have found an inn with a bed.

Just for Fun / Looting Policy
« on: October 15, 2007, 10:16:14 pm »
The riches gathered are for those most in need and those most in need are often those with the greatest desires.

The riches can be gathered by any and any quick enough to gather riches may do so.

Items not readily identified should be snatched and any item that fits in one's bag should be identified later in private.

Gnomes should have first choice and of course gnomes of the deep should always pick before those of the surface.

Gnomes of the deep are often quite worthy and yet Vin is most worthy of those deep gnomes.

Vin may choose what to reveal and the most choice items may very well stay in Vin's bag.

Vin will split gold evenly and of course basic rounding will often occur.

Items revealed by Vin may be rolled for and Vin may of course also roll for items revealed.

Items fairly won by Vin are often available and any who wish items Vin has won may often trade for fair quantities of gold.

Arguments should be avoided and disputes can often by settled by Vin.

Those accepting this policy are listed below and all that wish to adopt this policy may make it known by signing below.

Introduce Yourself / Greetings and Salutations
« on: March 12, 2007, 01:12:39 pm »
My name is Alex Peachey and I live in Las Vegas, NV. Before that I was in Seattle, WA and spent most of my life in the Pacific Northwest. I am currently the IT Manager at a very large trade show and as a supplement to my income and a recreational activity to boot, I play poker and have done so since before it was cool to do so.

I'm 32 and my handle here is vgn, which is what you get when you take the vowels out of the word vegan, which is a word that also describes me. I've been vegan now for about 6 or 7 years and vegetarian for 14 years.

I've been role playing in some fashion or another since I was in middle school, so I guess that makes it 20+ years. I found Layonara in the fall of 2004. I had played the single player campaigns and had never played an online role playing game of any sort. Browsing through the NWN sites I saw a blurb on Layonara and read everything on the forums. I decided it sounded like the kind of place I'd like to be and signed up. At one point I was encouraged by a GM to apply as a GM. I was accepted and spent quite a while helping the team as I could, running quests, administration, and project team. The scale that holds my work/life balance in it's hands started to change though and work drew heavier and heavier. I took a step down from the team and have enjoyed playing as time permits.

CNR Suggestions/Discussion / A Book of Alchemaic Recipes
« on: December 06, 2004, 03:10:00 pm »
While all of the recipes for the various alchemy creations are available in game (the cards, the table, etc), I have found that for this craft with all it's varied ingredients, it is handy to have an easy to read/search reference. I often come across some ingredient and I know it likely has a use in alchemy, but I can't remember what it's for.

To that end, I present version 1.1 of the Alchemy Book.

Also in rar format Alchemy Book

I have added the new silver and titanium enchantment recipes so the book should be complete at this time.
