Character Katrien Hommell

Her original Bio is lost in mists of the old forms  She is currently Bard (23) and Rogue(8).
I would like to add 5-6 levels of Fighter class.  I am aware that once I start adding fighter I must add at least 5 levels.   My final intended split will be Bard (26), Rogue (12) Fighter (6)
Kat's been singing for some fighting parties in various adventures and lamenting about how squishy she is and wants to toughen up so she feels she can contribute better .  I've re-started her journal to reflect this.

Happening in 30 min.   What shall it be?  Exploring the unknown?  Lizardmen leader's head?   Suicide mission for the shadow paw leader?  Grandfather's ashes?  Bugbears or giants on Alindor?   How about Trolls or killing the Zamin?  So many choices :)   

If this is not a good time slot, please suggest another.   I really want to make this work for everybody

Meet by the fire in Center and we'll decide where the adventure goes depending on the skills of the party assembled

12 (noon)  EST  9am (PST)  5pm GMT

Preferred characters level 16 and under but having a very skilled guide (Uber Epics) would be nice too

A chance to get to know some of the lower characters and give them a chance to do stuff while not solo

This is a player driven event though a GM may poke there head(s) in and make it more interesting if they want to.



Want to include as many as possible that are interested, so if this time does not work - suggest another or post your name and timezone and we can see what  compromises we can come up with

Character Submissions / New character submission : Charlee Hommell
« on: November 23, 2023, 11:20:26 am »
Name: Charlee Homell
Age:18
Class(es):Fighter
Race: Human
Subrace (if applicable):
Alignment: NG
Deity (if devoted):
Domains (if cleric):
Biography and Description:
Charlee's father always wanted a boy.  He got Charlee instead.  Not to say he didn't love and care for his daughter, he did.  He, however, didn't understand her.  Never one for the more domestic pursuits, Charlee is more at home with a sword than a needle.  She can cook but on a campfire, not a stove. She can hunt for her supper and she considers sparing as dancing.
She's left her family's cottage on the outskirts of Hlint with plans and dreams of adventure.  Only time will tell if it was the right decision.

I'd like to see some kind of access control to posting in a character development tab post that is not your character .  I'm not refering to the forum , the feature of the forums that allows publishing of character development related post in your NWN character's page. My suggestion would be if possible to limit to the account owner, administrators, GMs and individuals invited by the account owner - with the ability to recind those invites if necessary.

Rumour Has It / QUAKE !!
« on: May 28, 2014, 04:44:41 pm »

The recent tremors that have plagued Mistone in the region around Haven City and the Silkwood Forest cumulated in the early morning hours of (Layo Date to be added once the sundials are reset) as massive earthquake to shook the region.

The shock wave was felt as far as Spellgard and Hlint but the damage was limited to the Silkwood region.

 

Flash flooding occurred around several dry creek beds as large subterranean aquifer was disturbed. This is thought as well to be the source of flooding in many underground structures of the region. These structures may well remain permanently submerged. Only time will tell. The flooding washed skeletal remains down stream of an old burial site. Proper authorities have been alerted to deal with the re-interment of these souls before they can run amok.

There are some reports of a large debris cloud that mushroomed above the forest. Since it occurred in an uninhabited section of the great tract of forest, it is thought to be the collapse of some natural structure or perhaps old ruins in the area.

 

Haven City thankfully suffered only minor to moderate structural damage and no town residents have been reported as casualties. Haven Castle had several towers partially collapse but they are repairable. The mines that sustain the economy of the town however were mostly devastated by the quake. If the economy is to survive, new mines will have to be built in the surrounding territories.

 

The mine collapse may have exterminated a large portion of the local gnoll population. It is unknown how many still populated the underground areas in the wake of recent flooding but non there could have survived the cave ins caused by the quake.

Tuesday May 13th at 9pm until 12amThis is the second to last installment of the series. There will not be a minimum attendance number.  Start point is Haven City. All new and returning players welcome.Haven and the surrounding Silkwood forest have been beset by earth tremor, flooding and a surge of monsters both living and dead.   The town's mining livelyhood is threatened.  Ogres and Gnolls run rampant.  Rumors are that the dead are walking in the forest.   Umber Hulks are being forced above ground and in numbers rarely ever seen before.   Spiders that normal keep to their underground dens are roaming the forest.   A small group of adventurers have stepped up to try and solve the puzzle but will they be successful?  Will it be enough?  Will it be in time?

General Discussion / End of an Era
« on: January 02, 2013, 12:57:42 pm »
For many of you this will come as no surprise, my absences of late  saying far more than words.  I wanted though to remove doubts and make  it official.
 
When I joined way back, Layonara was a different place with a different  vibe but like all things it has evolved over the years. People and  places change and sometimes relationships grow apart.  Its hard to admit  when something no longer works and that apart is far better than  together.
Layonara was a salvation in my life in a time when I needed an escape  from my reality.  Now Layonara only serves mostly as a catalyst of angst  and that's not the way it is supposed to be.
 
So from here forward I am stepping down as an active game master and  administrator.  I will still be around in the background as part of the  team for Lore consultations and I still have some quest loose ends to  tie up or move to other game masters.  I am not leaving all together as I  will be turning my concentration to the art of the MMO and writing.
 
Sincerely
  Minerva

Rumour Has It / General information and rumors
« on: October 14, 2012, 01:09:57 pm »
As time has passed the lands affected by famine have fallen into a holding pattern.  All urban growth has stopped and towns and cities have begun to recede in size.  Without a  stable food supply and loss of tax base due to migration, urban and suburban centres cannot function and there has been a return to the small sustainable villages and farming establishments.

Crops and livestock on a small scale are easier to protect and do not seem to wither to the extent of larger fields.   Population numbers are falling as families are having fewer surviving children due to the effects of poor nutrition and choice as well as migration to unaffected areas.  Armies and militias are also decreasing in numbers.


Depending on the dominant social system, those with wealth and power still have no problem obtaining the products they need, it just costs them more.  Dissidence is growing in the lower classes of some social systems where wealth is not shared and the those that hold power care little for the poor and middle classes.


The opposite holds true for those areas not effected by the famine.  Urban centres are booming and their populations are growing due to migration. Agriculture is expanding to support this population and export growth.  Wealth is being accumulated at all social levels for the most part and leaders are popular.  The trade in slave labour in the realms that permit and encourage such are  booming as disaffected and indebted peoples are falling victim to human trafficking.  Indentured servitude is also on the rise as the poor trade freedom for food. This cheap and bountiful labour source is also helping the growth of the all industry in prosperous areas, especially forestry,agriculture and mining.  Land and real estate in other kingdoms is being bought up as it becomes available.


Dark elf raids continue to plague the land at a rate far higher than what used to be considered the norm. Vale lies in ruins with only a few hardy souls still calling the area home.  There has been little to be done about rebuilding. Clover is desolate except for that one house that was not effected.  It too seems to lie empty and still.  No one was left to rebuild. Goblins and bugbears have taken advantage of the situation and their numbers are on the rise.  


Peoples around the Forest of Fog did marshal together a militia and with the help of Rael the Benevolent and his army.  With the aid of a mercenary tracker they were able to discover an entrance to the deep where most of the raids had been mounted from.  A battle ensued where many lives were lost but the entrance was completely collapsed.  There are rumours that the Rael troops captured a demon horse and its rider and they were taken away.  All sources in the Rael establishment deny any such thing other than the successful battle occurred.


It is also rumoured that several ruling powers in affected areas formed a council to share information and  attempt to determine the cause and stop and hopefully reverse the effects of the famine. Authorities from several faiths and fields of study were invited to join.  Citing security reasons, little has been said about what has been discovered.  An observational telescope was erected on the slopes of Cyclops peak to watch the Red Eyes formation in the night sky.  They have gradually increased in brightness and size over time while other star formations have dimmed.  The number of stars in Lucinda's group has fallen to the lowest count in several centuries.


The peoples of Krandor are worried that civic leaders and tavern owners Connor Garvill and AnnaLee have not been seen in some time.  They were headed on a trip to Alindor and sources in Mariner's Hold confirm they arrived there but they have not been seen since entering the Wolfswood forest well over a year ago.
