New to NWN: Dungeon crawl with me?
« on: July 30, 2015, 05:07:09 pm »


               

Edit: Just a Warning. I went on a semi unrelated rant toward the end of this post. If you don't want to read it, that's fine. I guess i just wanted the people who I'm ganna be playing with and might be friends with to know the kind of person I am.


 


So I'm sorta new to computer gaming (used to be a console gamer) and now I'm seeing all the stuff I missed out on. My computer is sorta shitty so I've been playing older games and I was pleasantly surprised at how well many old games have aged. Nwn is by far my favorite so far because I love D&D and the modules are amazing!


 


Anyway allow me to get to the point. I've been looking everywhere for people to play this game with! it's hard enough to find people to play old games with but it's harder still for me because I'm not looking for a RP server (which is mostly what I'm seeing posted). Also I'm looking for a smaller group (around six people including myself would be perfect) but I'd happy just to have one other person to play with. Ideally you know how to set up a server and everything because I don't and would have to figure it out, which i'm not unwilling to do (i'm pretty comp savvy) it's just a pain.


 


Here's what I'm looking for in a group, gameplay wise. In short, I just want to dungeon crawl. I don't really like RP in video games (i prefer RP via tabletop) and Story isn't as important to me when I'm playing with other people because I hate sitting in silence while everyone reads long threads of dialog. So what I'm really looking for is a party that likes strategy and challenge. Word to the wise, I love challenge! I'm not one of those guys who turns down the difficulty because I die a few times. i never play this games on normal and i use the very difficult setting liberally when i feel the module is too easy.


 


As far as who I'm looking for socially, I get a long with just about anyone. I'm very laid back and open minded. Oh and I'm 22 and male if that matters. Seriously just don't be a douche, that's literally the only requirement. If your not a douche we'll get along just fine.


 


Edit: and here's where i rant about kindness Vs. being a douche XD


 


For those who need the clarification I define a douche as person who is mean and judgmental toward another person. I'm a big fan of mindfulness and Zen Buddhism myself (not the dogma just the philosophy. I'm not much into religion, although i am open minded about it) So when I say I get along with just about anyone i mean it. I don't care what your age, gender, religion, or sexual orientation is. I even don't care about personality or what you've done in your past. Everyone deserves a chance at redemption no matter what you've done. As long as you are not currently hurting people, and you are kind at heart, I have no problem with you.


 


I know that last paragraph was maybe a little bit of a rant and perhaps unnecessary, but I decided to keep it for two reasons. One because I take friendship seriously and I'm hoping to make some friends here '<img'> And two because I those values are very important to me. I know this isn't very zen or mindful but I hate people that judge others and use those judgments as justification to be mean or discriminate.

Welcome to the community! I'm sure you'll find plenty of nice people to play with on various servers. I've had lots of good luck finding interesting servers to play on using the NWN Scry website: http://www.nwnlist.com(Just make sure you choose the header to say NWN1 because it defaults to NWN2).  Or you can check here: http://yourserverlis....php?juego=nwn1


 


I would recommend the following servers personally: *RP = role play PG = powergamer


Alangara (mix of RP and PG)


Folderol Phonenix (mostly PG but not a lot to do alone)


Soul Forge 169 (mix of RP and PG and there's tradeskills, nearly no quests at all except for newbie ones)


Neversummer 3.5 (complete overpowered PG fest!)


Neversummer 4 (Middle pg server but lonely early on)


 


I will play with you on any of these servers and I know them all pretty intimately.

Kenshin,


 


I'd be willing to play with you when I have the time.  At a minimum I have some non-PW modules which are basically just dungeon crawls that would probably interest you if you don't mind learning some rules/changes different than the default (note that pretty much every PW and many custom modules have made changes to the default rules, though the amount varies).  I'd also be willing to play on some PWs if they look interesting to me.


 


Oh, and sadly the "Very Difficult" difficulty setting doesn't do what you think it does.  Can go into a more technical explanation if you want but basically it's identical to Hardcore except for low level physical attackers.
