Ask A Gamemaster / Re: Use Magic

If you're referring to UMD, it depends on a number of issues:
  • The number of steps removed from your character's alignment
  • The level req. of the item
  • Whether it's restricted to a different class

See: NWNWiki: Use Magic Device.

Edit: Ninja'ed by Lance while I was writing up release notes!

Shameless self-promotion!

Most notably, note the mention of the scout.

Custom feats are possible.  We have them, with the Scent feat, the Daylight Adaptation Feat, etc.

But, as Aphel suggests, the best approach if you want something added to the game is to see how difficult it is to implement yourself.  If you can provide a drop-in package, already tested for balance and compatibility with other haks, new features become a much more reasonable request. ;)

(FYI, active feats - ones that can be activated - tend to be a bit more of a headache to implement.)

There are, in fact, creatures that can be killed for beef.  They aren't cows or oxen.  I leave finding them up to you.

Just so it's clear: LORE: Slavery In Layonara

Bear in mind, even IRL, there's pretty much no activity that's universally illegal.  And as ScriptWrecked pointed out, something doesn't need to be illegal to be smuggled.  As long as a profit can be made by bypassing government duties, smuggling will take place.

In Real Life(tm), for example, cigarettes are often smuggled in the United States - from state to state, since duties and taxation vary by state.

Domains are on a per-god basis, and are irrespective of the alignment of the cleric.

That being said, the justification for a Neutral cleric taking Good as a domain would have to be good.

Hasn't been asked yet:

What form does the crash take?  Are we talking BSOD taking down the whole computer, NWN vanishing with an error message, NWN vanishing without an error message...?

Only straight level is considered when calculating RP/Quest XP.  ECL is not an issue.

I've had the same thing happen from time to time on one merchant or another, but it's just an overflow on an integer, and is unlikely to cause a client crash.

When, precisely, does the client crash?  When you open his inventory, or during the dialogue?

The last suggestion (a feat allowing additional uses) may be possible (a cursory look at feats.2da doesn't suggest that it is not) but non-trivial.

Adding additional uses every 5 levels would be of equivalent difficulty to this suggestion.

On top of that, I don't see anything particularly wrong with Lay on Hands as it stands - it can't be divided among multiple people, but that's not too much of a shortcoming, and Paladins, as with Clerics, can spontaneously cast heal spells of the same level as other prepared spells, so it's not as if they're going to be short on healing.

Not every ability is going to be a gem, and any way you slice it, it's extra healing that's available to your character and your party.

Quote from: Dremora
Paladins are not clerics, plain and simple; they are holy warriors, not psychics. The clerics commune directly with their gods and im fairly sure paladins do not.

Just wanted to address this first - this is absolutely untrue.  Paladins are warriors in the service of their gods, and commune as directly with their deities as clerics do.  Because of their twin focus on faith and martial prowess, they don't generally develop quite as deep a connection (as reflected by their more limited spells), but a paladin of Toran is every bit as qualified to lead a Toranite service as a cleric.

The point I was going to get at is that generally (in D&D, if not in NWN), spells and abilities have balancing abilities.  Detect Evil is an at-will ability for Paladins in D&D, but there are spells like Undetectable Alignment which mask alignments.   (Or a thin sheet of lead.)  If a similar ability were implemented in Layo, the counters would also have to be implemented.

This isn't to say it couldn't be done, but, as always, to demonstrate that it wouldn't be a simple, isolated change.

Unfortunately, the Lay On Hands uses-per-day cannot be modified to be dependent on an attribute.  Turn Undead and Bard Song are handled differently by the engine than other feats, allowing this.

Even if it were, the specification (no spells or magical equipment) is impossible without screwing up a _lot_ of other systems (most notably the racial skins system).

The last suggestion (a feat allowing additional uses) may be possible (a cursory look at feats.2da doesn't suggest that it is not) but non-trivial.

What davidhoff said - specify time, location, and good times for you to meet up.

Most of my characters are low-level, and I'm sure there'd be some fun in running around Mistone a bit.
