NWN 1 - Tales of the Silver Marches Persistant World
Are you looking for a strong Roleplay server based in the Silver Marches of Faerun?  Come by and give us a look. 

We expect our members to be mature, intelligent, and respectful of each other while they enjoy the interaction in our server and forums.  A strong team of over 10 DM's has created a well supported and very active server.  At the moment our server covers from Silverymoon to Nesme in the Evermoors, over to Mithril Hall and on up to North Moonwood and Frost Hills. 

While we have players of all levels which regularly interact together for everyones enjoyment rather than seperation.  We also believe in keeping control of the "magic item" arms race that happens on many servers where players are running around with more and more powerful items till everyone seems able to rival the gods themselves.  Also, to encourage interaction and roleplay, we support even those players that wish to play a more "NPC" style such as merchant or even waitress in a bar.  Earning RP through roleplay has developed a strong roleplay community as well as adventurers. 

You don't need any files beyond the basic patches and CEP 2.0.  We figure players want to come in and give us a look, not have to download a dozen files before even knowing if they like the place!  We keep our server updated and bug free very regularly, even updating daily if necessary to fix bugs or add new and exciting events. 

Come on in, yell for a DM and we will be happy to give you the nickel tour and point out some starter things for you to get involved in.

We do follow the Faerun timeline and have started at 1369 dr, however we have just reached 1370 and are beginning the celebrations for the creation of the new Silver Marches Confederacy.  Join one of our many guilds or become a force to be reckoned with on your own.  Either way, come by the forums or the server and see what we can do for you. 


Location has changed:

Tales of the Silver Marches server in the RP section of Gamespy.

If you have any questions, shoot me a note on the forums and I'll be happy to answer.  I go by Stonewyvern and look forward to you joining our community.

Can you bring the funny?
Attention! Attention! GameCola is looking for new writers!

OK, so, actually, chances are you've never heard of GameCola, and you’re probably wondering why you should be “Attention! Attention!”ing right now. We're an online gaming newsletter with a vague focus on retro titles, and we've been around for just over four-and-a-half years. We get a quite modest 150-200 hits a day, though that always seems to be going up, at least slightly.

Here's the site if you wanna check it out: http://www.gamecola.net

What we have to offer you: Nothing! Ha-ha! Of course, that's just an absolutely hilarious joke; what we really have to offer you is this: Uhhh. An e-mail address? Yes! yourname@gamecola.net! It's two gigs! That's totally more than G-mail, isn't it? It was at one point, at any rate. And, if you wanted, you could put this as a resume and use me as a reference, as people have been actually known to do. Plus, you get the experience and satisfaction of writing for a gaming newsletter and actually having your stuff read. I swear we have readers!

We’re definitely not going to give you any money, though. At times we have free games to offer, but that’s pretty rare, and the free games are generally of the “Dragon’s Lair Ported to DVD for the Umpteenth Time” variety.

What we're looking for:

Review writers and columnists. Reviewers are more in demand right now, but we could use both. We've got a number of old columns just waiting to be taken over by fresh blood. These columns include "You Learn Something New Every Play," which is about the educational value of videogames/things you can learn from videogames; "Games for the Casual Gamer" which is pretty self-explanatory; and "Judging a Game by its Cover," which examines the coverart of today’s videogames, generally picking apart the one’s that aren’t terribly good. This is in addition to a few new ideas I've been tossing around in my handy dandy notebook.

Plus, really, if you've got an idea of your own, chances are I'd be willing to go with it. Unless your idea is “I wanna write my thoughts on gaming newzzzz~!!~!@#~~!,” because we’ve already got (this is a rough estimate) 600 people doing that.

Cartoonists. We’ve been sorely lacking in the Web comic department for years now, and I’m looking to make better on it. A comic, or even multiple comics, on the gaming industry, gamers, or anything remotely related to gaming would be totally keen.

With any new writers, cartoonists, and so forth we have coming aboard, there’s on particular thingie we’re looking for: A sense of humor. If you don’t got it, we’re not too interested. Just something to keep in mind.

Okay, that's about it! If you're interested please send any writing/comic samples you might have to pfranzen@gamecola.net, or just post a reply here and I'll drop you a line.

Thanks for your time!

- Paul Franzen

Neverwinter Nights 2
Hello everyone, I don't know how many people caught my original post here last November about the nwn2 community here on LJ, but I just thought I'd pop another notice about it here, being that the game has JUST been released in North America, with it being a few days away for the rest of the world. So, join us if you're interested in the sequel! :)

Patch 1.67 question
Hi, I just need a little help with figuring something out since I'm not a computer whiz: I'm downloading the 1.67 patch, but do I have to download it for each module (NWN, SoU, and HotU) or just one of them? Also, should I download the one that says basic patch or the "critical rebuild"? I'm running on a Mac if that makes any difference. Any response would be appreciated, because I'd rather not have to download three separate patches if I only need one. Thank you.

I'm at the part of the game where the adventurers have reached the very top of the Host Tower, and face Maugrim, Morag and Aribeth. The only problem is there's a gate/fence/door in between us. I've tried spells, weapons, everything, and I can't get it open and I can't get any nearer to the three. Did I miss something in the rest of the tower?

I know this community hasn't been active for a little bit, but hopefully some of you will come back to help me out! :|

EDIT: I found the proper script at http://nwn.bioware.com/support/known.html#27. Thanks everyone for your help!! :D

My husband and I are trying to play Neverwinter Nights together but we cannot seem to be on the same server on the same time. It times the first one of us on out when the second comes on and then won't let us back on past the master server. We have set NwN as an exception on the firewall on both computers, changed settings on the router, and messed with everything else we can think of. Any other ideas?

Secret Doors
Crossposted to nvrwinterscript in hopes of getting more replies. :)

Can anyone help me out with making secret doors?

Scripting is not my strong point and while I'm slowly learning I can't figure out how to do secret doors. Any help mucho appreciated. Thanks.

Hordes of the Underdark pillar room
North section of level one. For some reason every time I go in there I can't click on anything at all. Not the doors, levers nor can I even attack the two drow there. I tried updating the game but it hasn't fixed the problem. Has anyone else had this issue?

Help for a building noob
So, I heard about that contest Bioware is having to look for writers, and, since writing for a game is such a dream job for me I'd long ago given it up for impossible, I figured I'd give it a shot. It gave me an excuse to pick up NWN, anyway =) I've got tons of ideas, and have fooled with the Aurora toolset a bit to try to put them into action. Thing is, while I have no problem stretching out my writing skills, I am absolutely clueless when it comes to anything practical; specifically, the coding aspect. It speaks volumes of praise for the toolset's interface and useability that I have been able to do as much as I have with little help. The official tutorial provides some assistance, but does not go into nearly enough detail, particularly when it comes to converation. Are there any good resources out there that can help me out?

Charity of Choice!
Child&apos;s Play Charity 2005This is a Charity started three years ago by Tycho and Gabe over at Penny Arcade to help out the kids stuck in hospitals over the holiday season! You can visit the site and click on the hospital of your choice to see the children's Wish List at Amazon.com. You can then order and have it shipped directly to the hospital! (Please don't gift wrap.)

This is the first year that Child's Play is going to be Worldwide!! So let's all do our best to contribute!! Even if you don't have the money to buy stuff, you can post a link on your website, blog, or club! And if you have a printer (or your school or office will allow it) they have flyers that can be printed and hung up! Imagine how much good can be done if we get flyers hung up in high schools and colleges! Not to mention gaming stores!! Hey and comic shops while we're at it!! I'd really love to see this get spread around!!

If you want to link them then here are links to the banners I downloaded from their site. The links to the banners here are to my photobucket account, so if that bogs out, then please just visit their site and download from there. If someone lets me know if I bog down, I'll make a second photobucket account just for the banners!

Up and Down Banner

Thank you for your support of this worthy cause!
Please join the Child's Play Charity Awareness Club and help spread the word about this wonderful cause!!!

Also please drop a visit and a thumb's up to Mistress Snow as her blog is where I found out about this!

Heavy armor and druid spells?
I'm playing a druid in the demo. Does heavy armor affect the Druid's ability to cast spells? I noticed that some armor I found have an arcane faliure rate of %20. I don't think the armor will affect a bard's ability to cast spells.

I haven't played Dungeons and Dragons before.

Not sure if I am allowed to do this....
but I just thought I would pop on and mention a module I play on, its a roleplaying server aimed at parties rather than gaming and soloing as such, and we're always interested in seeing new players who want to take part in quests and roleplay.

Website address is http://www.nwn-rp-astoria.net

You can find it in Gamespy as ForgottenIslesofAstoria

Or the IP is

Come along and see what you think. I play a number of characters, but my player login is Amaranthe Rowanleaf. Say hi!

Is it possible to make any monster or creature a PC, and is there any way to make more classes? I have grand ambitions for a module, and it includes have a lot of the prestige classes that weren't put into the game, and having a lot of creatures and templates and such be able to be PCs. Also, can your PCs ever go above level 40?

It will be a grand module, oh yes.
1:19 pm
I haven't played the game in a while, I beat all three campaigns and got bored and quit. Just today I saw all the premium and fan modules, and I'm wondering what to get.

Are the premium modules worth paying for? Are there free fan-made modules that are just as good and/or better? And I don't mean those arena ones, I want a full adventure with story and neat gear and everything.

Also, are there any good modules, free or otherwise, that take advantage of the higher levels? Like, modules that start at level 30 or something?

If you could suggest some other good modules that have a decent story and a decently lengthy adventure (or even a short adventure if the story or other features are exceptional), I'd greatly appreciate it.

Also, if you suggest a module, could you note how good it is with multiplayer? I'll be playing with a friend of mine probably.

Thanks a bunch, I hope I didn't ask too much. :)

Legends of Ferhan
Just thought I'd pimp a module I've been coding. It's called "The legends of Ferhan" and although we'd say it's in beta it's got enough quests and areas to explore to keep most people going for a hundred hours or so!

Both expansions and CEP are required, and if you do give it a go, please drop by at www.ferhan.org to post some comments on how you got on! We're happy for all feedback and are constantly updating the game.

A more detailed description of the game is on the website, but for the edited highlights:

The outcome of your actions on major adventures shape the world around you, opening up or closing other possibilities. Many adventures can be completed for the betterment of the world OR yourself, with rewards and costs dependent on how you play your character.

In Ferhan you'll find many advanced features such as:
* a truely random encounters so you'll never have a feeling you're walking the same road twice!
* Player information, dynamic world maps and if you're a dm.... ability to edit many aspects of the game (including the encounters) all through the web.
* true day / night cycles
* advanced crafting
* criminal ranking system (which will end you up in jail if caught!)

All that spread out over 200 areas with some 40 quests, in a world which grows and changes everyday.
