RDD question

PostAuthor: Viper Pilot » Fri Dec 26, 2003 5:00 am

Hello all, first post on the Avlis boards.

I recently bought NWN and am anxiously awaiting my exp packs so I can begin playing PW servers and like the looks of this one.

My question regards the RDD PrC. On the Bioware forums, I've read a lot of talk about bugs of RDDs logging into servers after they make class level 10 -- the server rejects the character as an illegal player (probably because of stats...). Anyway, will this be a problem on a server stored character like I'd have here or do the world designers have a workaround for this?

As a side note, nice looking web site as well as good content. I didn't realize the reading committment I would be making in choosing a PW to make home for my wife and I :).

We have a lovely search function on the boards that will answer most questions.

http://www.avlis.org/search.php

Try that and type in red dragon disciple, or prestige class, or rdd and see what you find.

With all due respect, red dragon disciple gave me over 600 hits, I could read messages til next week and not find the answer to my question.

Just because you might have read the question 69 times since you help run the place doesn't mean a newcomer has.

While I appreciate the academics on the use of the search function, a simple "yes, this has been thought of and is not a problem" or "no, we aren't even implementing the RDD since there are no red dragons on Avlis dumbass" would suffice.

thanks.

You'll have to pardon us at times. A word on the search button, if you type in 3 words and get some 600+ hits, you should go back and click the other oval so that you collocate all 3 words together. What your search pulled up was every thread that used the word "Red", every thread that used the word "dragon" and every thread that used the "word" disciple.

and well, to help you out a little. The team is discussing PrC right now but because there are no Red dragons, the PrC will be disallowed on avlis.

In regards to any bug on 10th level RDDs, I hadn't heard anything yet and this is probably not the most pressing concern to the team. In order to play a RDD on avlis, someone would have to start a character on another COPAP world that does allow the class and take their level there, then they'd need some IC reason to move permanently to avlis.

Hope this helps.

RDD is not being implimented into Avlis because there are currently no Red dragons in the world. The dragons that do exist in this world are mostly of the metallic/mineral tyep, such as coal, amber, etc. Therefore, there is no specific IC reason for this PrC to exist.

Currently, all PrC are disabled from letting the player simply lvl up in the classes themselves. Instead, you have to earn the class through a quest and of course meeting the requirements. There are only two that have been finished at this time: Shadowdancer and Arcane Archer.

However, many more are coming, including 8 custom PrC's that are meant to be holy warriors of each of the 9 major gods, blackguard being the holy warrior for Maleki.

The statements have not been made definite and you'll just have to wait for official word concerning them.


Alex's post in the link above was pretty definate that both RDD and Champion of Torm are not being implimented.

Just to add though will likely still be seen in Avlis someday if the person gets the levels in either of those classes in another linked PW.

My statement was accurate as of time of posting. Following the post, I noticed Reinstag's link which had not been posted up when I worte my response and have since edited out a good chunk of it to bring it into conformity with the latest information. Thanks for pointing this out, but I had actually edited my post before you posted this up.

Shifters will be "fixed" before implementation, i.e. no drow, no red dragon.

Like they said above, to play a RDD on Avlis, you would need to start out on another world like Rockhome or Hala, and then portal over to Avlis in the course of your character development. Once you have levels in RDD, you can advance in them on Avlis. You just can't START the RDD on Avlis, i.e. take lvl 1 in it here. Level 2 and so on is fine however.

Same thing with Champion of Torm and Harper Scout.

However, the world you start out on would have to have red dragons too... I'm not sure if Hala does, though I'll bet Rockhome does. Also, Champions of Torm and Harper Scouts could only be created on worlds with those... and I'm not sure if any world we are connected to right now has either. I don't really know.

Hala is going to have at least one red dragon. I just need to build some areas to put it in.

...sorry, but this has to be wrong...I have an elf character that met a red dragon at the foot of Le'Or. Metallic types were the first on Avlis thats right, the Platinum being the first ... when these joined in with the alliance against the orcs in the Great War, Mikon saw that the orcs were doomed, so he decided 'in the name of balance' to make opposing dragons, and these were made with minerals ... think thats how it goes..
