Ask A Gamemaster / Crafting; Exceptional; Trivial
« on: July 02, 2009, 08:48:29 pm »
Question about making "Exceptional Items": If you are crafting (say tailoring and trying to make a belt of cunning), and your chance of success is "trivial", do you still have the possibility of making an "exceptional item"?  Or does the trivial aspect make it so you don't roll and therefore have no shot of hitting a natural 20?

Ask A Gamemaster / gem mining: what helps?
« on: June 27, 2009, 08:22:39 pm »
Hi, just wondering if when one is mining gems (fire opal, for example), does it make a difference who does the mining or what that character's skills or attributes are as far as determining the success of the harvest?  Or is it simply random and everyone has the same chance of a good/bad harvest?

Rumour Has It / Dark Elves spotted in upper areas of Rift
« on: June 27, 2009, 08:06:37 pm »
*Tralek submits the enclosed letter to Dalanthar Authorities*

     This is a formal report of sightings of Dark Elves in the upper areas of the Great Rift.  Vrebel and myself were recently in the Great Rift and on our ascent upwards, after climbing the chain, we encountered two Dark Elves.  There was a warrior type and some kind of mage.  They were dealt with.  Further on our way up we encountered two more Darkies.

     We thought that was it for surprises until we heard some faint horn noises in the distance.  About this time, a Giant not seen by us before in the Rift, attacked us.  This Giant was very large and powerful.  The other Giants parted and allowed him passage to us.  We defeated him, but we both brushed close to death for sure.

     This letter is to warn those who travel the Rift to be on their guard.

NWN Ideas, Suggestions, Requests / Sponges
« on: June 14, 2009, 12:54:28 am »
I would suggest the following two (2) ideas to make "a piece of sponge" more available to those who need it (for example, for those who need it to cast the spell "horrid wilting")

1.  Make "a piece of sponge" an automatic drop for certain creatures (kind of like a bodac's tooth is an auto drop for killing a Bodac).  Creatures that might fill this role could be the Medusas west of Wayfare, the Hydra in the Sinister Forest, the Wandering Madmen outside of Dalanthar, etc.  The idea is that these creatures would drop the sponge because it would be a staple of their normal diet.

2.  Allow Characters with a high enough Fishing Craft Level to harvest sponges from some of the water areas that they normally fish.  The catching of the sponge could be an opposed check to their fishing craft level, plus the appropriate ability modifiers (not sure what they are for fishing cause I don't).  This would give characters who have invested time into their fishing ability a new way to get some thing back and maybe allow them to make some money in trade or barter.  I guess the sponges could be placed in the water the same way that carp and other fish are put in the water.

Let me know what you think.

Yours truly,

General Discussion / Zombie Polymorph Form gets 10/-?
« on: January 28, 2009, 07:14:37 pm »

I was in Red Lights Goblin cave as Zombie Polymorph form and was only getting 5/- damage resistance, not like the 10/- that lore or wiki says you get.  I also was getting 5/- damage reduction from Ghostly Visage...So, I took the ghostly off thinking there was some kind of a 10 pt cap, and I still only got 5/- damage resistance.  Please explain how this works..

Ps: I'm an 8th level wizard
