Re: Loremaster Secret of Teleportation (-teleport not working)

Is there any clarity around whether this is intended?

I took this feat with the expectation i would gain access to both commands, but as this bug report suggests, it only grants access to the -teleport create command.

Re: Protection Domain - Is it now useless?

.... Thankyou. I now understand why Garrbears post was not hyperbole and fully support the change, now that i understand the implications behind it. You mention further changes to Prot domain sanc.... Would the simple fix be making it an action based Greater Sanc that runs on CHA mod/rounds for dur...

Re: Protection Domain - Is it now useless?

There was certainly an issue that one could open the fight with greater sanctuary (7 round duration), cast protection domain (say a little over 4 minutes duration) when it ran out, then... cast greater sanctuary again because the cooldown had finished. the will save triggered for all in range even ...

Re: Protection Domain - Is it now useless?

i must admit i am biased as protection healpath was one of my favourite builds. I do not like the way this nerf was handled - HOWEVER, i see why it was needed. The save roll only triggered for PC's/NPC's in range of the cleric when the ability was cast. This could easily be abused by casting protect...

Re: Why Do You Play Evil? Open Question.

Available time. When i have the time to invest in a longer term character, i prefer playing good.

Re: New Scry Duration

Pretty odd. I load up the hub in the same amount of time. Usually limitations on loading has to do with server speed. Perhaps slow internet? Bare in mind i do also utilize a T3 line for internet so there is that I'm also on the complete opposite side of the world to the server. So, there is that. :...

Re: Award System Remastered - What Would You Prefer?

post on elitism and "reinforcing" the same argument - snipped in both cases feel like the only way to enjoy time playing is to enforce unrealistic bends to the character concept in order to fit in to the different groups/factions and enjoy the game. In other words, it's a status symbol to have ange...

Re: New Scry Duration

installing a SSD or an M.2 drive into your computer and running NWN through that. Effectively reducing your loading screen times to 2 seconds maximum. This is unfortunately, wrong.

For the past three weeks, you have gone into your job early, stayed late, busted your butt to go above and beyond with your work you put into it and you've asked for nothing in return.

This is an interesting thread as i'm currently maining a bard.... On my bardic characters I have, and will continue to alter and use RL songs, poems and legends without shame. Just as the creators of the Forgotten Realms have done since it's beginning. If a performance is well timed and fits the cur...

Re: HIPS (SM & SD)

crazy idea: Nerf ultravision - make it rounds/level. - I expect to cop a lot of flak for this suggestion but it makes darkness sneak more viable as a replacement to hips, it requires some "preparation" to be used and thus is no longer "instant button press disengage".

Loved every interaction with Konstantin across many of the characters that i have played in the last year, He/you always shined as a roleplayer and his character was nuanced and... what fun i cna imagine he got up to.

Re: Surface evil PvP Observations

A few months back, i was playing with a group of half-orcs. We would sit outside the half-orc camp in the jungles, or sibiyad orclands, and "Tax" anyone who came through. We'd ask for anywhere from 10 to 100 gold for people to pass. In the scheme of Arelith, absolutely nothing in terms of gold valu...

I would also add that large swathes of Arelith's playerbase are dismal at taking the outs offered to them, from personal experience.
