One of the few tips I can give with my own experience DMing is: Players cannot tell when a NPC is lying. Their character will believe what they think is right and potentially discard the possible truth as lies even when given evidence that supports the truth (or even consider it inconsistancies in y...

When you load up a module to experiment with choose post to internet, and convince other people to choose to play. Those people should be able to find your server. Truthfully, at least 70% of what a DM has to do is off server - reply to PMs, plan, coordinate, and so on.... they have very busy jobs :...

Note: With gog, it may take a few days to get a unique CDkey from them for multiplayer, and it must be specifically requested.

Unless you have a fix for NWN bug whereby it doesn't always check the character's full inventory when seeing what the PC has in their bags, I recommend the 'dump items onto table' option. This is because when I'm trying to practice crafting, it is sort of aggravating to have some 100+ items for craf...

I stick with top down, and generally use a lower camera when I'm out socializing or interacting with a single individual, but zoom out and up a bit when I'm fighting, because I find it difficult to use some area spells when I'm looking over the character's shoulder.

When I can't see servers, I check my friends list to see if they are on the server I want to be on, and can often connect that way.

I've never had a problem where I couldn't direct connect as well, though.

My character likes 1 use tokens and things of invisibility. This is to drop on other people, rather then to use on oneself, thus why the potion doesn't work.

but they weight 1 lb each so a stack 99 of them weights 99 lbs. not sure if people will bother carrying that much weight around. If not then your +3 handaxes are basicly going to be sold to merchants and NOT used. I always stick throwing items in magic bags to reduce the weight and that works just ...

Are people interested in a chance to develop characters (new or existing) who may end up doing unpleasant things to folk who don’t deserve it? Not even my evil characters qualify too much for this, unless there's something they seem to gain from it? What if it developed into a situation where a num...
