It is made known among the sell-swords of Vehl, that an employer is looking to pay handsomely for a job on Dregar.  Those that have sought more details are quick to say that it is not a job for the faint of heart.  Any interested should leave word at the One-Eyed Harpy that they wish to speak with Glack.

Layonara Server / Removing Subrace Skin
« on: February 12, 2021, 11:34:46 am »
Hey! Not sure if this is the right place, but I was wondering how our NWN tech leaders would feel about removing the subrace skin for orcs? I have a few reasons for it, most of them personal. I really wish I could personalize my character model instead of having to use the very generic orc skins. Clothes really helps me set the mood for my characters. I also find it odd that the orc models are smaller than the half-orc models. Even with the largest size they don’t feel as physically imposing as they should. That’s it really, just a whimsical request. If it’s not possible/too much work/contradictory to how the server is meant to be run it’s all good. Thanks!

Trade and Market Hall / Spider Silk and Purple Mushrooms For Sale
« on: July 06, 2015, 08:40:00 pm »
A dealer from Krandor represents a seller who has two cases of high quality spider silk and one case of purple mushrooms for sale.  All offers will be considered, first come, first serve.

I would like to submit Thhakuk for a CDQ to become an Unholy Champion of Pyrtechon. Original Character SubmissionCharacter Development PageSince escaping the decimation of the srocerer's army, Thhakuk has been a loner trying to do the Raging One's work.  Because of this he has learned the importance of deception and subterfuge to survival.  More than this, he has learned that subterfuge and deception can enhance and accentuate the completeness of destruction.  He hopes to ensnare people such that he can gain their confidence, and trust so that he may destroy that at the end as well, leaving his sacrifices a broken husk of a person whose ashes will be consumed at the very end.  This is the greatest gift he can give to the people of Layonara: a complete and utter voyage to the non-being of oblivion.  He has approached this fearlessly as he knows now that the worst that can happen to him is pass in to the maw of Pyrtechon.As his resources and influence grow, he plans to ensnare entire villages in bizarre and inspired symphonies of chaos and destruction.  To this end, he is studying how to make traps, and plans to design elaborate systems of traps so that once he has alerted a village to his presence, likely through acts of violence and vandalism, the attempts of the villagers will result only become the instrument of their downfall.Finally, he hopes to resurrect the Sorcerer's army in his own image so that he can stand against the nations of Mistone and beyond.   His traps will become ingenius instruments of warfare that none have ever seen before.Champion Statements:1. I have read and understood the information on Pyrtrchon and how to play a champion of his faith. 2. Thhakuk does not believe that one comes to the afterlife through Pyrtechon instead through Pyrtechon one is given a far greater gift: liberation from existence in any sense. Through the maw of the Destroyer is nothing; there is no pain, no fear, no anguish, no happiness, no love, no thought, no substance. It is the highest form of freedom that he can imagine possessing. So Thhakuk sees himself as one who liberated people and brings them a precious gift. With every acre he turns to ash, he elevated the world to a higher spiritual plane. The transition is painful and terrifying but ultimately purifying. 3. Thhakuk wields a great sword that has been used to send many beings to the maw of the creator but he uses other tools to do his work as well. Traps, alchemical preparations, poison, magic scrolls and wands are all in his arsenal. Thhakuk realizes that in order to bring about maximal destruction that creativity and adaptability are needed. That being said, he prefers the visceral experience of doing Pyrtechon's work with weapons. He has not yet adorned himself with basalt because he has not been indoctrinated in to the faith in that way. 

Development Journals and Discussion / The Dance of the Cantor

This is my effort to write down what I have learned so that I might find my way better along the path.  The War Singers possessed a find tradition of apprenticeship and obscurity in their teachings so the lessons learned were always fleshed out through experience rather than an abstract conception.  Let's start with the name: War Singer.  It seems natural to think that they are bards or minstrels who ply the martial arts, but that would be an assumption based on abstraction and bears little on the truth of the matter.  They played a game of subterfuge with those encountering their reputation in order to always possess the high ground.  Although they were mercenaries, they were not bloody-minded.  The war they fought was always one within; they vied to vanquish the pressures that separated them from the immediacy of their experiences.I say this, but I do not know this as I know the letters that I use to form the words I writeThis is a simple impression of one who spent time livng amongst them as an initiate and who has endeavored to carry on their legacy now that they have passed to the Pits and beyond.  I can play the double-game and contemplate that I perhaps and only believing what I wish, but even if that were the case, and it is about even money that it is, then I would still hold the same belief, for this is what I want and where I wish to travel. Ever since leaving Leringard, I have created the possibility in my life that there is something beyond the mundane that I can tap in to.  This world of magic and wonder is, in my mind, an elevated place where I can bridge the gap between observer and observed, where I can strip away the image of myself as seamstress' son, or faillure or whatever.Anyway, there is more to this than just some notion of fulfillment, but I don't know what to write so I will leave it for later.

Another sleepless night.  More flashes or the slaughter.  The sound of that scream pierces my ears nightly.  My comrades rise from where they lie and mock me.  Then I discover I am suckling at my mother, only to find a mouth filled with blood.  I wake with sweat soaking my clothes and the cold stars stare down at me.My mind goes back to my study.  The frustration, the failures, the humiliation and I cannot help but wonder if Garrick mistook my talent for spell-singing or if I am missing something, some key to unlock a different side of my talent.  My war chants have their appeal: it is easier to vanquish a foe when he falls down asleep at my feet, but I read in the Library in Spellgard of the exploits of Alantha T'sarran and I wonder at it.  Pure channeling of the Al'Noth is something apart from what I do.  I hope to one....*A water stain blots out the rest*

Development Journals and Discussion / Blood, Fire and Steel
« on: April 16, 2014, 11:24:35 am »
I fled the battle and came to the small community.  Spread out.  It would take some work to send it to the Destroyer’s furnace.  It was night, there was no one about.  There was an ancient stone surrounded by flowers the color of blood.  I touched it and my soul came alight and then was calm once more. I came to a hall for craftsman and artisans.  There were some strange devices about.  They put ideas in my mind for machines of death to send the unsuspecting to the Raging One’s embrace.  There are no books to read, no teachers for me, so I must learn myself.  My tribe met some followers of Grand and so I know of some of the workings of metal.  I have never done so myself. Someone in the hall stirred and I hid behind a cool furnace.  She grumbled about pests below.  Spiders and beetles.  Poison to be found.  I snuck down and waded through rats and beetles and spider.  I was overcome.  All fell to oblivion and I smiled.  But then I was ripped from the Raging One’s embrace and found myself before the ancient stone.  I am powerful now.  I returned to the insects and smote them once more.  I harvested some poison from spiders.  I fell to a moving puddle.  I awoke by the stone and smiled.  I could taste the oblivion I am promised many times and return to do Pyrtechon’s working.I met an elf.  Clad in black.  Silent as a shadow.  Shadow, I call him.  He calls me ugly.  Perhaps I will kill him.  Perhaps he will kill me.  For now we walk together.  He tells me of a cave in a forest with riches.  I tell him to take me there.  We walk for many miles and days.  Mostly we say nothing. Shadow and I sneak through a city.  There is a temple there.  Of Toran.  I make the mark of the Destroyer on it.  Small and quick.  To remind me that they must burn.  To let others like me know there are others like me.We come to a forest, there are more beetles.  Some have glands to make fire.  Some of acid.  They will be used in my machines.  There are spiders.  I take their poison.We go in to the cave.  There are lizard goblins.  We kill them and I take some teeth.  There is metal there.  I will use it for my machines.  The goblins have gold.  I take it.  I find a merchant who will talk.  I give him gold for a blade and armor.  The merchant runs.I go to the cave now.  I take metal out.  The goblins and lizards hate me.  I spill their blood.  I hew their heads.  I try to make pure metal.  I must learn.  I find some tools.  I make wire for my machines.I must find deliverance.  I must spread the oblivion of the Destroyer soon.  I can hear the Sorcerer in my ears urging me on.  I will find a family to burn soon.  The cry of Pyrtechon must echo through the lands.

General Discussion / House issue questions
« on: February 22, 2014, 04:43:18 pm »
I have a couple of questions about housing issues. How do I get the front door to auto-close?  I cannot for the life of me figure out how. The second question is about a couple of rooms that have buggy floors. Halfway through the room it is as if there is an invisible wall. I cannot walk past the midway point either by using the mouse or WASD. Any idea how to fix this?

Rumour Has It / A Journey to Highpass Fort and Beyond (GMT!)
« on: February 06, 2014, 11:36:36 am »
A rumor goes about in adventuring circles that a gray elf named Kalberen Starseeker is looking for intrepid souls to accompany him on the dangerous journey to Highpass Fort and perhaps in to the mountains beyond.  There will be a gathering in Dalanthar, and then the journey will set out on foot from there.  It is thought to be a dangerous journey with savage tribes of men, giants and perhaps even drakes to be concerned about.//Friday, February 7, 2pm ET/7pm GMT

Rumour Has It / Missing Toranite
« on: February 06, 2014, 09:08:25 am »
A letter arrives for Brualot out of Katherian:Master Brualot,[/i]This letter is to inform you that in response to your notice in Center, an expedition set out for the Swamp of Sorrows. Having some familiarity with the troll population there, we located a den of theirs. Amongst the usual hovel and shiny trinkets was a garish, but extraordinary pairs of boots. Our thoughts are that they may belong to your Toranite, and fear the worst. Please advise. [/i]Intrepidly Yours,[/i]Rasa Kirta[/i]Ryn[/i]Kalberen Starseeker[/i]
