Gotta See A Tree About A Guy
« on: January 21, 2019, 01:47:12 pm »
Word gets around between this circle and that that a halfling is looking for a "tree-friendly" group to help escort a friend to and through the Great Forest for some manner of healing. "We've been to see the druids of the desert, we've been to a cradle of forgotten wilderness, and our only recourse seems to be the Great Oak!" Apparently ships are out of the question for some reason, making it potentially a year-long journey overland all the way from Arnax at the opposite end of the continent.

An oft-repeated addendum is that a mage who can levitate things is apparently high priority.  "Trust me, I've got it all figured out." There's a promise that everyone can keep anything found, but also the occasional odd "I will try to scrounge a lot of backup food for us, but I've been gathering feed for so long that my sleeves are fair bursting! At least I will never lack a bed..." remark.

PS no horses, please!


// Escort Mission From Arnax to Great Oak
// NPC is squishy, ill-tempered, and subject to sudden attacks of suicide
// Magic will occasionally be needed for some obstacles.
// I'd assume that any wizard of high enough level to be traveling on Belinara could have a Levitate banging around his spellbook somewhere.
// Looking at Saturday Jan 26 in the PST AM, maybe around 10, but could be shuffled around if needed.

FYI I'd mentioned computer problems on Discord but was pretty sure I could get going. It's at least running right now, I have some things partitioning and then a reinstall and a restore, so I am looking nervously checking the time :) I'm hoping it's done by 10. I don't know who was planning on attending but fingers crossed heh.

AN UPDATE! I've reinstalled, but this restore looks like it is going to take hours. I suspect it doesn't help that I'm copying from a shady drive, but I've felt pretty gambly with my entire digital history in the last 48 hours, heh! Unfortunately, just downloading NWN itself for now would also take hours on my internet, so the haks on top of it would be eternal. It's faster just to let it restore.

Afternoon? Evening? I'm not sure what's convenient. :)

Hoff's will be around the house, building fires, cooking pig and trying to take in the sounds of the  Rolex24...any time is good; we'll keep checking for the update to the update.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I had to run to town  while stuff was running and even after returning it's hard to use these forums on my phone.

It seems like I've got so many different issues that it is just whack-a-mole trying to get going, heh. Unfortunately the dicey drive failed me and I lost a lot of stuff. NWN 1.69 is still alive, but not the haks (because the folder it pointed to for all my user files didn't make it), so I have to download them anyway... and my internal hard drive is giving me @#$%, too...

Anyway, I'm looking at shooting for 7pm PST at this point. Sorry to anyone who was planning on attending for the bouncing around :/ If something else explodes, you'll just have to go on a less tree-friendly trip without me!

Seems to be working alright. At least one thing has gone right today, if hours later than I would have liked :P

(8:30PST update, two halflings call it a night, perhaps tomorrow!)
