Alright, we're gearing up for the 1.68 update, so we're making the new files available for public download before we update. (Which should be very soon.) However, please remember that you... DO NOT ACTUALLY UPDATE UNTIL WE TELL YOU TO.* There will be an additional news post when we are ready to upda...

I'll give two thoughts on this matter...the first is an "IC" explaination and the second is an OOC thought on the subject as they're not exaclty compatible.

Have they indicated yet whether sorcs and bards will actually be able to take spell casting prestige classes and get additional spells KNOWN or did they just decide not to bother to fix this particularly nasty oversight that Bioware first created when doing prestige classes for NWN1? From the sounds...

There is a bit of literature being written about arcane casting classes, etc., but I'm not real sure if it's ready for public airing yet. Needless to say it addresses a few of the questions above, but I really need to vet it more thoroughly before it's ready.

Confounds will recieve Divine Grace, just like the other classes.

I am NOT changing their preerequisites, but their abilities will be a good bit different from the proposal posted above.

Thanks.

The Platinum Dragon in the world info is an avatar of one of the Nine that brought the metallics to Avlis.

It is not Bahamut or Paladine, just so we're clear.

All types of metallic dragons exist, but whether they do so in large numbers is somewhat subject to debate.

Servers Back Open for Business

Servers are back up and the passwords have been set back to normal, therefore you should be able to log in again.

Technical Difficulties: Please Do Not Log In

Hey Folks, we're experiencing what you'd call "technical difficulties" right now, with the servers. Now I'm waiting on the fellows with the technical jargon to more accurately assess the problem, but right now the servers are what we in the colloquial jargon would call "screwed." Currently anyone wh...

For the purposes of going through damage reduction and for adding to your attack bonus, attack bonus/enhancement bonus can be considered interchangable. It's just EB adds to your damage as well.

The interesting thing about this is that Atari's the one pulling the plug on Bioware's plans to continue with the premium mod program, which is kind of odd, given that Atari hadn't actually spent a cent on NWN support for oh like the last two years. Of course the fact that a NWN premium module (Wyve...

What I find disturbing about all this is what it says about the state of NWN2 development as a whole, it would seem that Atari's very eager to get this out the door, even if it means shelving one of the major features touted for the game. Let's face it, NWN is nothing special, it can't compare to th...

But in general yeah, if you have 3 mages against you running away might be prudent if you have no abjuration spells.

Well you can still be from Arvanos and have ties there, particularly since Arvanos has an alliance framework in place so there'll probably be PCs standing around with it in any case.

Your background doesn't necessarily have to reflect your present condition in any case, as well.
