Development Journals and Discussion / Among the back alleys...« on: April 09, 2021, 09:38:19 pm »
...all through Vehl and Arnax street runners pass messages that a Lord Gronk of Vehl is looking for mercenaries comfortable with wetwork to drop a bird to the innkeeper of the Harpy or a dockworker in Arnax.
"Little scamp," thinks Naldin, as a street urchin ducks past him, having just passed the news on to a mean looking half-orc who was in the process of voiding his lunch over the flag stones of the back alley behind Miggin's Mug. Needless to say, the half-orc was not in the mood for interaction with anyone at this time, and had tried to give the urchin half his mind before heaving violently again.
"Lord Gronk, eh?" He might have a pretty penny or two thought Naldin. Yes, he was definitely going to have to find all about this Lord Gronk, and his relationships in this nest of vipers that is Fort Vehl. Who were his "friends"? Well, allies at least. More importantly, who are his enemies?
Naldin looked over to see the half-orc had collapsed flat on the floor, his eyes rolled back in his head, his tongue sticking out. Yes, the poison Naldin had dripped into the half-orc's meal had worked quite well.
Naldin pushed his trolley-cart over to the fallen half-orc. With a practised motion, he heft the half-orc's body up and into the empty cart, then drew the hinged lid shut across the top. Naldin stooped in his ragged clothes, once more becoming the itinerant rag and bone man, pushing his knife sharpening cart about the streets of Vehl.
Development Journals and Discussion / Part Three« on: April 09, 2021, 09:32:38 pm »
The third part of Naldin's story begins...
NB: since Part One, Layonara's system of dating has been adjusted; each part one post title no longer matches an actual date
Development Journals and Discussion / Part Two« on: April 09, 2021, 08:33:50 pm »
The second part of Naldin's story occurred during the second time (coincidentally) I was on Layonara and covers the period from level fourteen to level twenty. Alas, the details of his adventures during that time have not been recorded. One can only imagine...

And yet another murder in Vehl
Fort Vehl: Five Sails Company Fire
Shame: Knight demoted
Naldin's explusion from the Knights of the Wyrm marks the end of part one of his story.
Trade and Market Hall / Re: Wanted: Type III Electrical Enhancement« on: April 08, 2021, 08:38:29 pm »
I would have sworn on my last ale that there were no Type III Electrical Enhancements in any of the adventurer run shops on Mistone. This is why I made my notice.
However, on receipt of your reply, I checked again, and found the two enhancements in your shop. Alas, the order has been filled in the interim.
I thank you for your efforts, and hope we can do business in the future.

Thanks to Markyl, Zigruum, Tralek the Gifted, and Sehky (all too briefly) for the trip into the Deep today and yesterday. Much fun for the win.

I would like to know if the Use Magic Device skill allows the use of scrolls and wands (on Layonara).

Calendar Events / Re: Quest: No Tinks, No Problem!« on: March 26, 2021, 01:52:17 am »
//Note that I like you guys showing up on time!
I turned up 45 minutes late to Milton's quest last week rather than 15 minutes early as I had intended. I had put the time as given in the quest into www.timeanddate.com, and got a time that, as it turned out, was 60 minutes late. Given that www.timeanddate.com is not wrong in its calculations, and I used the time as posted, there is only one possible reason for this aberration.
Having sufferred this problem throughout my questing career, I have had plenty of time to cogitate on what might be causing quest times to be posted that are repeatedly out by an hour for me, and yet accurate for the majority of players.
It came to me, as I sat cross legged on the top of the mountain in deep contemplation, that this problem would occur if the quest poster was not aware when they are on summer time, aka daylight savings time. The quest poster posts a time for the non-daylight-savings time zone when they should use the daylight-savings time zone.
All the locals arrive at the correct time because they are on/are not on daylight savings at the same time as the quest poster. Whereas the players in a different hemisphere, taking the times posted in good faith, get knobbled.
Given that the quest time you posted happen to be the same quest times as Milton posted, I will endeavour to arrive an hour early to be on time (5am local time),
Last week, I arrived 45 minutes late to Milton's quest, rather than the 15 minutes early I had intended. This was despite putting the quest time as listed into www.timeanddate.com.
Coincidentally, your quest time is the same as Milton's; I will endeavour to arrive an hour early to be on time.

...and my pointer is about a half inch off what it is hitting on the screen (below). Very strange.
I had that problem running NWN:EE from GOG Galaxy (on Windows 10).
Starting NWN:EE straight from "nwmain.exe" in the "./bin/win32" folder under NWN:EE home fixed that for me.

Trade and Market Hall / Naldin buys a Hearth Shield for 35,661 True« on: February 22, 2021, 06:47:41 am »
Naldin slides a (large?) purse/bag/sack(?) of thirty five thousand, six hundred and sixty one True weight of coin across the counter.
"Ay'll be havin' wun o' yer foinest H'arth Shields, loike."
Satisfied, he disappears through the portal to try out his new purchase.

Sorry, I assumed you had the hakpacks from a prior Layo installation.
Alas, nowadays, everything is locked up inside the SQLITE3 files in the ".\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\nwsync" folder.

(As per the [Alias] section of "nwn.ini" in the ".\Documents\Neverwinter Nights" folder:)
Portrait files: ".\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\portraits"
Model files: ".\Documents\Neverwinter Nights\override"
The MDL files have to be extracted from the HAK file into the "override" folder.
Bug Reports / Re: Character freezes while enemies keep fighting« on: September 20, 2019, 11:20:54 pm »
I've had this with one of my characters. They appear to be slightly bobbing/turning back and forth, unable to path towards the opponent. Clicking on the ground to move them and then clicking on the opponent to attack remedies the situation.

From the above link:
"Taunt counts as an offensive action but is not an attack per se."
