Hello and welcome!
I like Drusilla but boy her submission has had me pensive all afternoon.
You need to understand that forced alignment shifts are not in the spirit of character submissions and the evolution to a different alignment has to be organic. You can't have Drusilla act Lawful Evil just to become Lawful Evil, the opportunities must present themselves to her and the reactions that would alter that alignment have to be sincere.
As it currently stands I'm the only DM (though I'm more of an admin) who logs on and monitors players with any regularity whatsoever. While you may have heard that alignment shifts do happen it's not something I actively look out for while monitoring the server (not of my own accord, literally because I never think of it). The only way you're going to see this shift happen is through a journal kept here on the forum as there are not many mechanical ways to shift your PC in game.
Lastly, and most importantly I'm not even sure I will accept Evil characters on Layonara any more. As you may have noted there's even evil character submissions sitting in this board right now that I haven't addressed. Evil characters inordinately create more administrative issues than any other things. Frustrations with other players who have trouble blending their IC and OOC knowledge, metagaming, DM time responsibility, abuse of lack of in-game mechanics are all concerns that I as the sole administrator and developer do not want to deal with.
I understand this can be to the detriment of Layonara losing out on good roleplay but we've ran for the last decade on fumes and it doesn't bother me if great players have to move on as their desired style doesn't fit here.
With that said these thoughts are not yet set in stone and perhaps with a larger server population of keen roleplayers who wish to try evil or returning players who already have such PCs already come back into the fold I would think an "evil would work better as there would be an element of self-policing. So I welcome you to play her and should I see an uptick of more LE or NE character submissions of players I know I can trust then I will work on approving alignment shifts and Evil character submissions.
As it stands however Drusilla does sound fairly Lawful Neutral so if you want to play her like that, that's fine but I understand if you want to move on if you're worried that your vision for her may not ever even be realized.
Let me know your thoughts, this is open for discussion and not like some law set down.

DO we still need the old hak paks? I dont see them anywhere for donwload or any mentions
No you do not. NWN:EE includes NWSync which automatically downloads any hak or tlks necessary.

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.
No one else is reporting this, no.
Not sure I understand, if you deleted all the nwsync files then you would have to have redownloaded all of the files again and so it wouldn't say 0MB any more. So when you do that, when do you crash?
Also consider that anti virus programs have been known to not work with nwsync, if you have one you may need to disable it or disable the web feature (or something akin to that).
You can only stack the same gem of a different rune type. So you can use a Shadow Greenstone Rune I on a Al'noth Greenstone Rune I and you will get a Shadow Al'noth Greenstone Rune I but you can't use two runes at the same time, no.
If you attempt to use say a Shadow Greenstone Rune I then a Tidal Malachite Rune I on yourself, the first one will be cancelled. If you attempt to stack them it will not be allowed.
