Development Journals and Discussion / Tipsy Oak - Magic and Archery
« on: March 29, 2021, 03:07:50 am »
Journal Post 1:

I have decided to keep a journal of my efforts to combine magic with my use of the bow.  Aaron, the man I met in the Ulan forest, told me that my knowledge of magic could help me with my archery.  He said magic has been combined with the use of the bow by elves for as long as they have history.  It was not a practice in our village or by any wood elves I had heard of, but I did read books about elves of the past called Arcane Archers that were able to mix magic and archery.  Aaron told me of an elderly elf named Vycon Elirith that lives in the woods outside Fort Thunder that was a great Arcane Archer.  He suggested I seek him out for knowledge.  I will endeavor to do this.

My time in Center was short.  I heard of a band of adventurers gathering in Storm Crest to answer a call to aid, so I headed there.  It was a large group of outcasts and odd sorts.  I don't think I fit in well.  I did meet Hank and Barley who seemed to like me and we understood each other well.  The others mostly seemed selfish and some were even proclaimed Shadonites.  Our endeavor was successful and we rescued a gnome and his gnome comrades from the grasps of a nasty wizard named Tinks.

I've been trying to remember some of the spells mom taught me.  I can feel the magic in me and I know with more practice I will be able to begin casting spells.  I've been waxing my old hickory bow that dad gave me.  The string is worn, but the wood still has good strength.  I will need to make some more arrows soon.  It's funny how I sit and look at my bow and arrows now.  I wonder how it works to get the magic in me into the wood of the bow and my arrows?  I sometimes hold my bow in one hand and an arrow in the other and try to concentrate on my magic.  I don't know if it's doing anything, but for now I think it may be a good exercise to start trying to channel magic into the bow.  I look forward to meeting this Vycon but I'm a bit anxious.  For now I will keep trying to recall my magic.  I also have an idea I will try tomorrow where I will try and close my eyes when I have an arrow knocked and aimed at the target...and then with my eyes closed concentrate on my magic as I let the arrow go.  We'll see.... 

Rumour Has It / Emerald Skull Temple - Stort puts out an alert
« on: March 16, 2021, 08:38:11 pm »
*Pigmies are reportedly running wild through Stort.  The Stort authorities are overwhelmed at the border and have retreated indoors and have called for help.  Some of the locals who know partial-pigmy thought they heard something about the waters around The Skull "turning green".  The pigmies reportedly appear spooked and are running as fast as they can away screaming.  Stort has made an emergency call for aid.

Start time: sometime soon or maybe later on
Start location: in your cup
**Happy St. Patty's Day Eve everyone

NWN Ideas, Suggestions, Requests / Set birch bark to spawn more amount
« on: November 15, 2019, 03:13:20 am »
Right now it only spawns 1 or 2.  It would be great if it spawned like gumarabic or limestone which i think go to 6 (more would be good too :)).  Its a spell component for ranger woodland sheath and cant be purchased.  Plus it kinda makes since youd get more than 2 barks off a tree.

Lengthen the duration when applied to a weapon.   Right now I think is like 15 seconds.

General Discussion / Cainforge trip
« on: August 24, 2019, 04:46:09 am »
//there are four chests up front at 174 wayfare for quest loot.  @Talia I think we still need you to drop off your loot so we can make a tally and let others know when to come by and browse "all" the items.  Also, we can then compute an ore/gem split so folks can come pick there share up.  If you were on the quest and have comments please post here.

General Discussion / 93 raw topaz found at Center bank chest
« on: August 24, 2019, 04:42:50 am »
//Gumbo found these a few days ago and I made a comment on discord.  He's going to put them in Corky/Ryubi's house at 174 Wayfare in the foyer chest until some one claims them (please excuse the mess of chests upfront).

Implemented Ideas / One-click to partition rosts, etc
« on: August 22, 2019, 11:49:26 pm »
Right now roasts and pies take several actions to partition it into pieces; I'd suggest when you use the product you partition it all at once.  I'd also like to see this done with the water bottle spell component to get drops of water (for the spell ice storm).  There are probably others like this.

Implemented Ideas / Leather strip by-product of tanning
« on: August 22, 2019, 11:46:28 pm »
Suggest making a leather strip a by-product of a tailoring tanning failure (right now it's 57 trues or a worg leather and a thread to make)

Rumour Has It / Looking for aid to deliver package to Lyn
« on: July 18, 2019, 03:51:31 pm »
*Gumbo and Van send flyers out for aid in delivering a package to Lyn.

//we'll be on tnite probably around 830pm est.  Need to get a heavy rnq pkg up the mount.  Maybe also if you need the oil a vucas it cd be a twofer

*Rumor's spread of Lehyla the Pawner getting a bit tipsy at the Captain's Pub and bragging how she over heard two male dwarves and two female humans talking of Essrantor and plans for an adventure up the Thunderpeeks.  Then the talk got rowdy as the pub goers started comparing their giants to Essrantor's and things got heated.*

//Gona try an assault on Essrantor at 2pm est today/Saturday.  It's a tough place to catchup if you're late, so if you wana go try and be on time:) (that sounds odd coming from me:D)  I think some of the folks have some time constraints.  Bring healing potions too!

Hi Driggles is still up to no good!  All he sells is a pair of healing gloves (not really even that good) and healing supplies, and everything is way overpriced!  It's been that way for ever, but because all his stuff is known and way overprices he's kinda not used.  Maybe make him randomly sell stuff and at a fair or just above fair market price.  That would give characters a reason to go visit him and see what's new at his caravan!  Maybe throw in some surprise items once in a while or sales on stuff we'd actually use.

Implemented Ideas / Throwing axes: increase stack size
« on: May 25, 2019, 11:44:30 pm »
Could we increase stack size to thrown' axes to ...say...the same as arrows which is 500?

I appreciate the consideration of management.


Forum Discussion / Malware issue
« on: May 01, 2019, 02:07:46 pm »

I tried to download Ubuntu so I could burn it to a CD (trying to get EE going this way).  Well, I think I may have downloaded a virus.  I have this folder on my desktop labeled ubuntu and if I right click the properties it shows the file size growing very rapidly with no stop in sight (goes from 1.7gb to 3gb in about 15 seconds).

If I try and delete it, then after sometime it says the recycle bin can't handle the size, so it give me an option to permanently delete it; then I do that and it warns me it contains system files that may damage my computer.

I ran avast, malwarebytes, ccleaner and one other I can't recall AMG? (I think it's avast with another name).  None have found this file or deleted it.  I can't open system restore at all; I tried in safe mode also an nay.

Any ideas on how to get rid of this file or clean my computer or maybe get system restore working?


PS I'll try and get on discord later this afternoon when I have more time
