General Discussion / State of Origin
« on: May 25, 2011, 06:13:23 pm »
Hi guys.  Just wondering if last nights Australian Rugby League game was televised in the US?  They were claiming that it did.  If so did anyone try watching it?

I'm going to regret bringing this up as Psuedo will no doubt be over the moon with the result and I'll need to roll Fort saves to put up with him.

General Discussion / Another Dezza enters the world
« on: May 23, 2011, 05:50:41 am »
It's with honour and great privilege that I get to announce the arrival of little Dylan, son of Dezza/Michbr.
This is their fourth son out of as many children.  I am now absolutely convinced that they're aiming to create their own football team.

From what I hear all are doing exceptionally well.  He's a 4.27kg whoppa and I'd like to wish them all the very best of health and happiness.

So if anyone is wondering where Dezza now know.


NWN Ideas, Suggestions, Requests / Sequencing Stone/Token
« on: May 02, 2011, 03:49:29 am »
Just a thought here as I am sick of having no spare short-cut slots or having to right click/double left click to buff people or myself (written in good humour of course).

Can we get some token that you can activate to memoriase a sequence of spells and then when activated at a later time on a PC or self, will cast them all in the sequence memorised, pending on the spell being memorised or available?  It would still require a spell per round and take the same duration, only it takes the effort and concentration away from the operator of that PC.

I discovered this on another server once and never got around to requesting this.  It simply saved me around 10 short cuts and the aggrivation of sometimes foiling the spell, missing the character or casting on the wrong person by accident.

This would save me a great deal of time and aggrivation.

General Discussion / Happy Easter!
« on: April 23, 2011, 08:15:15 pm »
God, I can't believe I'm the first to say this but Happy Easter everyone.  Other than Tanman over in NZ beating us by 2 hours, us Ozzies wake up first to the world.
My son's already found 20+ eggs in the garden and eaten half of them.  My daughter also got her first taste of Easter, knocking down a couple as well.  I'm living on vapours after midnight mass but how can anyone feel down on such a great day.  Plus it's a cracking Autumn day here, wall to wall blue sky.

I hope you all get to share the fun safely, with family and friends.


Greetings all.

From the depths of darkness and despair comes a word document to consider.  Please find it attached for your consideration.

Many thanks.

General Discussion / God its been a long time
« on: June 24, 2008, 08:54:40 am »
Gday to all you crazy RPers.

It's been so  long since I've visited this forum or played NWN that I think I'll need to read the players manual again.

Anyway with a career change and university commitments + family stuff I've been hell busy.  I think I've finally reached a point where I'll probably start poking my head around every now and then.

So to all my dark comrads, if you're still around, keep an eye out for Alandric (three cheers to Corath).  To all my enemies, you'd better hope you don't get a consultation from doctor Vensk.  It won't be one of your regular check-ups I can promise you that.

General Discussion / Merry Christmas All!
« on: December 20, 2007, 06:27:56 pm »
It's been another fun year as usual.

Thanks to the GM team, the builders, the forum administrators, the players, the factions, my enemies IG, my comrads as well, all the people who took time to RP with my characters and even to the well spoken gnoll NPC merchant in the Corath Temple.

You've all made this year enjoyable.  Layonara has always been the nice escape from my busy life and even though I only get on a mere two nights a week it certainly is worth it.

So once again have a nice safe and healthy christmas everyone and we'll meet again next year I am certain.

Best Regards,

General Discussion / PC Tech issues - 1934 IEEE firewire port
« on: April 29, 2007, 08:35:58 pm »
Greetings all.

Thought I'd post this here as there are so many PC gurus on Layo.

Anway as the story goes you have a baby, buy a video camera, film the baby and try to download the pics through DV firwire and 'BING! Houstan, we have a problem'.

Now the weird thing is that the first time I plugged it in everything went sweet.  immediately windows XP Home picked up the device and automatically started rewinding and captured the tape.

Then a month later i wanted to do it again but failed as windows failed to recognise a connection between the PC and Video Camera.  The odd thing here is that the VidCamera says DV In yet the PC says otherwise.

So here I began a journey trying to fix it.  All my drivers are up to date.  My firewire is on an Asus Premium motherboard (can't quite remember the model) and I've got all the right software for capturing.  The main issue is that none of the software can pick up the VidCamera.

LAstly just to throw a curve ball, if i uninstall the 1394 Firewire connection form device Manager, plug in the Video Camera, nothing happens.  Then if I unplug the Firewire Cable i get the typical sound of a plugin and the port reappears....very odd.

Anyway if anyone has had similar issues please let me know.  I was close to testing the impact strength of my Video Camera versus a gyprock wall with the amount of frustration it has costed me.

Fixed Bugs / Skulcap from outside the Lizardmen Cave
« on: March 11, 2007, 11:09:16 pm »
I'm not sure the new name of the area, however, i was collecting skiulcap and noticed one of the plants was placed on the trunk of a tree that could not be collected.  I tried gathering it from all angles, unfortunately it failed to be picked.  

Now it might have been a prank from a GM to see how long I'd keep at it before resigning to the fact it just not going to happen (nice one) or it's definately a bug.

Fixed Bugs / Rat Skins
« on: March 11, 2007, 11:05:54 pm »
I tried skinning the rats from the sewers in Hempstead and it makes mention of me acquiring meat and skin, yet in my inventory only the meat is actually present.

Introduce Yourself / Greetings from Polak76
« on: March 11, 2007, 10:55:23 pm »
Gday all! (yes thats the typical Aussie 'hello' coming from Sydney Australia)

I began life in Layo about three years ago.  It came about one day as I was fooling around NWN in single player and my mate asked me had i ever tried playing it online.  It tickled my  curiosity and until then the only online game i played was Diablo I & II.  Anyway I explored the multi-player option and previewed a couple of worlds and Layo just so happened to be the first world that appealed to me (not to mention the best after sampling many other worlds since).  

Anyway from that point I was hooked, much to my partners displeasure.  Since that time I've been married and now have our first child at 6 mths (yes, there are more to come).  I work for a large Chemical Company in Australia and live about 1/2hr northwest from Sydney itself.

Layo has been great for that much needed escape from the fast busy lifestyle. Other than Layo i enjoy soccer & fishing, a drink with the lads and most of all spending time with my wonderful family.

When people ask me what Layo is, the best way I can describe it is an ongoing, interactive online story that you as a character/player have an opportunity to shape.  That to me is it's greatest hook and what keeps me here to this day.

General Discussion / Character attitudes towards each other
« on: October 31, 2006, 08:03:43 pm »
Well it hasn't been all that long RPing my new Corathite and as usual I'm already getting the typical metagaming issues I used to get a while back.

I would just like to remind people to rethink their characters attitude towards others whom we all know OOC worship an evil or unliked god yet IG have no idea.  Many of you may argue this but I promise you it happens all to often.  

This not only occurs to me but other friends I RP with on our Time zone. Each of them have also commented on similar issues. I'm not wishing to single anyone out, nor am I angry, I'm simply a little disappointed when people metagame to give their characters an edge or buff their ego's.

Now dont get me wrong, I'm all for people hating my characters. Thats the fun part.
I just don't like when I meet someone for the first time whom has no idea about my char, yet seems to already hate me because in reality they've seen under server status 'Corath' as my Deity.

Additioanlly even though you might hate a person's dry attitude, sarcasm or unwillingness to aid others, it does not mean you've learnt their Deity or allegiencs.

Hate for the right reasons and we'll all have some fun.
