Definitely try to run it on your current system and see how it performs.  Alternatively, look at Ubuntu which it appears NWN EE runs on natively. Then I would use Wine to run your on-prem Office software. No costs above the NWN EE costs.

I didn't have much luck with wine to play Diamond, but I found a slick program called "Porting Kit" that uses wine wrappers but it's all tweaked for the game.  Hope it helps...

Wine runs diamond out of the box.

I only run linux.... so I run nwn original on linux natively, as well as Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition Digital Delux (x2) on my machine (you can run about 10 copies of the game before you can start to slow down a geforce 1070). I've got an optiplex 745 slim i use as a server, you can play nwn on it run 2 nwn servers, and possibly EE on it if you buy a slim card. not sure if you have the slim models or not

Wonder if cheaper to buy Win7 (x2) and two graphics cards?  We'd need miscrosoft office for Word and Excell.
I would -not- buy windows 7, you're going to end up in the same situation down the road. Windows 7 is near it's EOL... If i was you I'd get Lubuntu (you don't want to run unity on that old hardware trust me) and run vmware for your M$ office suite. you can install and run windows xp and your office using virtual box or vmware or qemu.
you can run MS office in wine, and Excell. Open office can handle anything they put out I believe, but I wouldn't use Open Office, I'd use libreoffice

Ask A Gamemaster / Re: Chakar's Will
« on: March 08, 2019, 10:07:52 pm »
Chakar was Glitch'nich's first teacher, and Glitch'nich learned a ton about fighting from him. After the formal training in the arena, Chakar and Glitch'nich traveled many places. In now what I know was Chakar's later life, they traveled the deep together. It was only about a week between their last trip to the deep and Chakar's demise.

On the OOC side of things, I asked Chakar's advice before taking any levels.

Glitch'nich doesn't need another house, but would have been honored if his mentor would have confered an heirloom to him after the way of tea.

Glitch'nich had a lot of respect and admiration for Chakar even though he was a human and was not aware that chakar was so close to death.
Glitch'nich was shocked (as was I) to see that Chakar died (because he'd never said anything about it) and very displeased. With his mentor gone glitch has shut a part of himself down. He travels less, and creates more.

At some point in Glitch's relationship with Chakar he was told that if Chakar died he would inherit Chakar's belongings as Chakar had no offspring to give them to and Glitch was his only apprentice.

I had to remind Chazzler 12 times to post about the will after Chakar's death... so it's no surprise that he didn't actually remember to write one before his death.
I don't think about such things myself, as it's a fantasy world and most people don't think about this sort of thing until after the fact.

If such things were allowed in character here, Glitch'nich would have gone through the house to find something to remember Chakar by after hearing of his death. However that would be viewed as stealing, a bannable here.

I am not sure what the bond from Chakar's side was for glitch, but glitch would always look for chakar, and wish for him when he wasn't around. (Now I understand why he wasn't around much, SS and all.)

What ever the decision is about the will, may it be fair to all.

Fixed Bugs / Re: Whirlwind attack bug?
« on: February 10, 2019, 10:48:07 pm »
Should be fixed now, script was updated dynamically. After the whirlwind you will need to re-engage an enemy.

Thanks Orth, this is fixed.
On a side note it might need a bit of timing tweeking for layo... or I could just be lagging.
I'll let you know after far more use cases.

Rumour Has It / A stranger with a creepy stare.
« on: February 07, 2013, 12:44:35 pm »
*You approach the fire near the Bulls eye Tavern. As you walk up to take a seat by the fire you notice a stranger standing dressed in blue and white clothes. He has a load of gear on his back and looks as if he has seen much of the world, and many battles. He stands and stares all creepy like at the fire.*

// Glitch'nich Amthrmil has treasure maps for low level fighters or characters with the martial skill, RP with him and he may give you one ;)
// meant for groups of two or three people of low level. (  1-8  )
