Important Layonara Announcements / Layonara moving to NWN 8193.15
« on: September 16, 2020, 05:42:12 pm »
Hello everyone,

As some of you may know we have been running the preview version of Neverwinter Nights to iron out some bugs in anticipation for the next major release by BeamDog. The latest stable release 8193.15 was pushed yesterday and I anticipate we'll be running that version on our secondary server by the end of the week.

In the meantime the old 8186 server has still been running as well, but its time is running out and I will be moving all efforts to the newer version until our community members can all up date. Once that takes place I'll shut down the 8186 server and focus on adding to the new version.

So if you can, please update your NWN to the newest version and join us at or you should see us in the server listing.

I have also been considering opening a second passwordless server once the old 8186 version is shut down with a complete character/housing/resources wipe. This will be open for anyone to come into without a character submission for people to get a feel for Layonara. There's a lot to work out for this though but I've a feeling it will be worth it to see the community grow a little bit. I guess I won't cross that bridge until all the community who was playing on the old server migrates to the new one.

Thanks and have fun!

Important Layonara Announcements / Solicitation for some donations
« on: May 19, 2020, 06:04:18 pm »
Hey all,

As some of you know I was recently laid off and coupled with a sickness I've had for the past while I've not been able to do much so I was wondering if I could ask if you can spare a few dollars to pay for the servers I'd appreciate it. They only cost $14 a month but any bit helps. If you can please visit - thanks so much.

I know I have some queries asked by the community but my brain is pretty mushy so I'm trying to stay in bed, but the bills are eating away a bit and I hate to do it but was hoping for a little help.

Thanks so much,

Greetings and best wishes for the holiday season everyone.

First off as of now a bonus event is running with the Soul Mother being inactive, extra GP and extra XP! I am not going to set an ending date quite yet so just enjoy it while it lasts.

Secondly as most of you probably know, NWN has had a new release and Layonara is still on the old release. I've been preparing for the migration to the new release and It's all ready, just need to test it out a bit more and turn the switch. I'm just holding off until I know most of the community will be ready to move to this new edition. Some older computers may not be able run NWN:EE 8196+ as it's 64 bit and requires a bit more GPU than the previous edition. Either way, we're going to have to migrate sooner or later so I'll buy a bit more time by testing the new version.

All the best,

Important Layonara Announcements / All Recipes Added to the Wiki

You can now search or browse through all CNR Recipes on the wiki.

Increased Fortune, XP and GP until Tuesday.

The Soul Mother is also taking the weekend off work.

Even the Birdlord has some bills to pay and I am interested in helping out with some jewelling and enchanting work. Please post here if you require any services. My rates will be reasonable as I need the practice. I have a lot of experience with even the most advanced settings so fear not for your valuable resources.

Layonara Server / Please welcome Tobias to the GM Team!
« on: June 24, 2019, 05:34:21 pm »
Were pleased to announce we've selected Tobias to help us out with some GM duties. He's shown a strong ability to coordinate player events, helped me out with many things in the transfer to EE, contributed to module development and has experience with the DM client and DMing on Layonara. Tobias will start out getting re-acquainted with the tools doing some small flavour and impromptu things then we hope he will soon be able to start contributing to quests. Please welcome him back!

Layonara Server / In Game Systems
« on: June 03, 2019, 12:53:52 pm »
The wiki has now been updated to show all the Game Systems that are available in the world. If there are any more that I may have overlooked please let me know. The address is:

Thanks to everyone for helping us get a lot of the bugs squashed and making the migration a lot smoother than I thought it would be.

We will be running a bonus event for the rest of the month of May to say thanks! All Fortune, XP and GP multipliers have been increased.

I also want to measure progression a bit and try to find the fine line between character progression and time spent. I'm not sure what the end multipliers will be but I'll collect some data during this event and perhaps set XP, GP and Fortune at a value somewhere between regular and bonus events. Or I may just leave it be :P

General Discussion / MOVED: Unable to attach file
« on: May 04, 2019, 05:40:56 pm »

First off, thank you to everyone for quickly reporting the bugs and having patience as we work through the kinks. This was a significant update and there was bound to be some niggling issues here and there.

Now some random notes.

  • The old 1.69 server will continue to run for a while as we make sure everything's okay and there's no need to fall back to it or log in on that end to check something. Characters who continue to play on 1.69 will be able to be migrated by hand.
  • There may be some changes to lore to open up some of the areas that are currently inaccessible.
  • For the most part, I will be dealing with the administrative end of things for NWN now. Dorganath and rowana are still accessible but they're more in the background.
  • Project team members will be welcome should you have interest in building new areas or contributing in other ways.
  • All old information has been ported to but we need to add structure. Use the search functionality if you're looking for something.
  • There will be another bonus period starting soon.
  • If you're having trouble accessing your characters from the vault, create a test character and let me know the name of your test character and I will move your PCs over
  • The address is, we'll also show up under the server listing

A further note on Layonara lore

Layonara's lore is a bit muddled with general staleness as the time has passed, among other things. We ask that you do your best to work with what you know right now. Things may have to change a bit to suit some planned improvements to NWN, so please do your best to work with what's necessary for you to enjoy your time here. The future you create through NWN will still be decided by you the player, but for the most part, that will stay as NWN lore. It may so happen that canon Layonara lore will diverge through other outlets and production in the future, but that doesn't mean NWN Layonara is not true. Much like comic book timelines, it's all true and meant to be enjoyed.

If you have any questions on this or any other things, feel free to let me know.

All the best,

A lot more details to come.

Expected migration is a couple of weeks, could be sooner, could be later, may depend on testing but there are administrative tasks that need to be performed as well.

Speaking of testing though, I'm going to need testers so if you have EE already and want to help test please raise your hand in this thread. You will need to be accessible via Discord to help test.

Again, I'll have a post(s) in this thread with a lot more information but I wanted to start with an official heads up and let people know if they don't yet have EE it will be needed soon.

  • Fix random quest's not resetting after 5 days
  • Store subrace appearance on sql DB not Bioware DB
  • We don't need 10 separate card game areas, dropped it to 5
  • Clean up old items in the palette that are unused

Layonara Server / Houses Returned to Market
« on: January 17, 2019, 06:59:39 pm »
Some houses were returned to the market recently. These were homes where the user has not played for over 3 years nor had the house even been entered since 2015 or the player was banned. I didn't go through the usual claim for the home since no one had even entered the home in a long period of time.

If you feel I have mistakenly returned a home to market, feel free to let me know, houses can be restored via backups if I've erred.

Fixed Bugs / Some animations have become messed up
« on: January 14, 2019, 10:24:42 am »
I've seen it from the goblins in the hideout and the vampires, their animations are just not right. Have to look into it.

Fixed Bugs / Deleted quests show up as errors in the journal
« on: January 11, 2019, 11:41:19 pm »
I just need to delete those entries from the db as well.
