NWN Ideas, Suggestions, Requests / Suggestion: locked doors in cities may have loot within the building« on: October 04, 2019, 03:02:45 pm »
I heard (have not attempted) that one can pick locks on some doors in cities. I've also heard that there is no loot within. Let's give some incentives and rewards to rogues by having some loot within, and also the potential of an npc, if that's not too difficult.
I'd also like to suggest there are more chests - locked and unlocked, in the cave complexes or lairs of monsters.
I've been noticing that sometimes the foes get a bunch of attacks in even though I've made the action to be attacking in response. Then I have to actually move my character a step or two away from the beast and attack again, for my character to actually attack the foe.
I saw in the recent grievances thread that Ke'Koa wrote that he, Hellblazer, and Davidhoff have all three also experienced this issue.
Is this a bug?
in game, i play it off as the fog of war, or being temporarily stunned or intimidated, but it's a hassle, and I lose a lot of attacks due to it. It does keep me on my toes to be aware of the battle and deal with the situation as it comes up.
« on: September 15, 2019, 11:16:58 pm »
A lot of animals attack the player, even when in real life those same animals would flee. Examples include deer, birds, skunks, even black bears and cougars (I live in the mountains of Colorado and have encountered black bears many times, and cougars several times - they always flee!). It would be great if a player can choose whether or not to hunt these animals, rather than be forced to fight and slay them.
I'll soon be starting a level 1 human monk (Barley), and I do not have experience with how to plan the build of a monk.
Any suggestions on good monk builds?
I'm considering a strength-based monk, though I think I've heard most people opt for a dx-based monk.
Thoughts or suggestions?
These are my ideas, thus far:
Feats: 1. Luck of Heroes, Dodge, 3. Weapon Focus Unarmed, 6. Blindfight, 9. Toughness, 12. Imp Crit unarmed (not sure after that, maybe Power Attack and Great Cleave partially as pre-reqs for Overwhelming Crit later; or if kamas are useful then weapon focus kama, imp crit kama).
I'm assuming Mobility and Spring Attack are not needed if I have a high Tumble. If Strength-based, I may need Expertise (and Int 13).
Major: discipline, tumble
Minor: Concentration, heal, listen, lore, persuade, spellcraft

Loaner Chest - Crafter's Buff Items - Saddlebag Pawn Shop
As an experiment, Saddlebag Pawn at 181 Port Hempstead Fields is offering a chest of loaner gear to aid crafters in their endeavors.
The Crafter's Loaner Buff Items chest is in the main hall, on the left.
All items should be borrowed only just prior to crafting.
All items must be returned just after finishing crafting.
If the items have been helpful, consider leaving a donation in the Crafter's Loaner Buff Items chest, such as something you've crafted, or something you've smelted, or gear, or coin.
When borrowing items, please leave a note of what you've borrowed (// in this forum thread //).
When returning items, please modify your note.
Examples of some of the items in the chest: Nymph Cloak, Headband of Intellect, Bracers of Dexterity, Boots of Striding, Lesser Gauntlets of Ogre Power, various Tier I and Tier II rings and amulets.
This experiment is to be of service to crafters and to inspire crafters to provide crafted goods to Saddlebag Pawn.

I've noticed that lens pricing seems somewhat arbitrary. Some items at 75% of lens just are not worth that much True. Some unique items have already been priced in the past as well below the lens price. And now, more and more unique items are showing up that need special pricing if they are sold or traded at shops.
Is the lens pricing a thing that came with nwn or is it a layonara thing?
Is it possible to see what the lens pricing is relying on for determining value? X value for Y attribute of an item, for example?
If so, is it possible to change parts of that equation?
If not, do you think it's worth it to come up with a list of attributes and their values, and proposing that, to help with pricing unique items?
Minor bug that maybe is common?
Occasionally I find that a chest at the Saddlebag malfunctions and won't show the contents or the activity (what was taken or dropped off), when I examine it. My fix for that is to empty the chest, destroy it, and recreate the chest. Is there something else I should be doing?
Also, sometimes when i examine a chest to see the activity, it lists what has been added, but there's a blank space where it should list the name of who added the item.
Example: 99 Dust of Greenstone added by on Novlar 20, 1471, 6:39 PM."
Starting a brainstorming thread here on when the majority of dwarves can meet with the Stonesmasher Brothers to talk about carving a dwarven home in the Ire Mountains.
Known dwarves interested (and there may be others): Bron, Khrom, Jinn, Gumbo, Van.
Most or all of them heard from Bron in-game that Rocky, of the Stonesmashers, would be in Center soon (sounded like this weekend?).
And idealy we should meet another time earlier, or an hour before Rocky gets there, to talk together (or brainstorm OOC below) about what the home could look like. Ideally, the place has enough small/modest rooms that a dozen dwarves (or two dozen or more?) could call it their home. Rooms large enough for a bed, a few furnishings. and a few chests.
I'm available online Friday night anytime after 8:30 PM EST, or Sunday anytime after 4 PM EST.

Trade and Market Hall / Wanted: Silk Hood, Nymph Cloak (Trade for corn, pelts, greatsword, boots & more)« on: June 29, 2019, 01:05:47 pm »
By the pond and the road, within eyeshot of the formidable orcish gate guard of Fort Vehl, a tawny-furred wemic rolls in the grasses, hums tunes, and sings in a strange throaty language. Occasionally she leaps into the pond and comes out with a fish, which she eats raw.
Beside the road is spread skins of various animals, a bronze greatsword, a box of corn, will-o-wisp essences, spider venom sacks, a saphire bronze amulet (+2 spellcraft, +2 concentration), Boots of Cougar (+3 Discipline, +1 vs Mind-Affecting), and two copper greenstone rings (+1 vs poison).
When people journey along the road, the wemic sits down by her goods and speaks in a deep rumbling, halting, voice:
"Trade? Ashi seeks Hood of Silk, and cloak blessed by fae spirit - make Ashi voice sweeter."

Bron Skallagrimsson Character Development Thread
Original Character History Submission/Bio:
Anguish and Rage
Long the bitter years since Bron stalked out of his father’s mine and home, and made his way into the wide dangerous world. Long the years, of dulling the rage through ale and pick on stone, hammer on anvil, and axe on bone.
“Why live?” This had crossed his beard repeatedly. The weary tread of hikes, selling goods, surviving, drinking, camping in caves and under trees, all were tedious. “Why live?”
And yet whenever he considered ending his fruitless life, the rage would stand him up, shore him up, and move him onward, to the next mine, anvil, or battle.
Rage. Not a way to live. Yet it did let him survive. Living would be in a clan of friends, with a wife, a family, with Vorax-blessed will and …. with purpose. He had….nothing. Only rage.
He was raised honoring Vorax. Yet these years of surviving, not thriving, led to a crisis of faith. He knew that in Vorax’s eyes, Bron was pathetic. No mastery of blade. No mastery of weaponsmithing. No mastery of anything. He hated himself for the lack of commitment, lack of focus, lack of dedication to the mastery of….anything. And as much as he hated himself, and thought to end it all, he hated his father even more. And somehow, in the pit of childish emotions, he sometimes disbelieved in Vorax, or blamed Vorax, and disbelieved in anything that shined with pure courage, pure honor, pure warriorship.
His self-loathing was so deep, that If the Father of Battle existed, Bron knew that in his eyes Bron was unfit to carry Vorax’s shield or hammer.
Forty years have passed since escaping his father’s abuse and beatings. Forty years, mostly alone. And now Bron’s boots have lead him back to Mistone. His dull mind, self-shamed spirit, and ornery scowling cantankerous close-minded brute of a spirit has begun to thaw over these few months, due to the slow friendships developing with others of his kin. Traveling, talking, smithing, and battling with Khrom, Jinn, Van, Gumbo, and Mica have lead to a tiny spark of hope, of light, of ….faith.
When he had left his father Skallagrimson Troll-slayer, Bron had vowed to become better than his father, stronger, swifter, more masterful - and he had vowed to become a Giant Slayer. And last week, shoulder-to-shoulder with Khrom, Bron hewed with hammer and might, summoning the rage to embolden his spirit and limbs, felling giant after giant. He could barely think…..and he knew not what the sharp bright pain was in his chest.
Later, nursing the bruises and stitched cuts from the long battling, Bron wept. Deeply. And remembered. Giant-Slayer. He had vowed to be a Giant Slayer. And now he was. Perhaps he was not so worthless as he had thought. Perhaps Vorax did live inside Bron, in his strong limbs, wide gut, thick skull...perhaps there was something bright inside to live for.
And here were kin, friends, brothers, voicing the goal of living together in a cave hearth-home. Bron’s chest broke, shattered, melted, like an ice flow bursting upon a cliffside under the summer sun. This is it. What he longed for. Vorax…….Vorax…….forgive my disbelief, my cowardice, my lazy lack of focus. I will…..I will to be a warrior in your name. I will to channel this rage into the defense of my kin and kingdom. I will to focus this rage for the building of a hearth-home with those kin who are battle-comrades now.
Relief. Bron lay in the tavern bed. The whiskey on the table forgotten. Cheeks and beard wet with tears. His whole body relaxed…..like autumn leaves falling to the damp earth. He let go...and something inside chose life.
Then Bron heard the old voice, the nay-sayer, the doubter, the trouble-maker, the blamer and shamer, “but you didn’t kill the giants by yourself. There were others, spells empowering you, other blades rising and falling. You were amidst many, slaying giants. Alone, you would have died. As you should….now.”
Bron shook, in shock and sudden panic. Then he lept from the bed with a roar of rage. “Silence! No more!”
Rage rushed in hot fury through his body. “I will not listen to you! I will slay you as I will slay the giants! I have my courage now! I have my battle-comrades now! My rage sustains me! And my kin sustain me! And I will slay giants alone, when I Vorax guides me to!!”
