Nagritch guard/jail bug.

Post by Freeze01 » Sun Aug 07, 2011 2:48 pm

While exploring Nagritch with my character i ended up under the courthouse. Talked with the jailor who asked my character for a 0 gold fine. My better judgement told me that i should choose the option to pay and not to choose the bugger off option.

A bit later when walking to the gate of town, my character got stopped by a guard, not having done anything wrong, the IC reaction of my character was to tell him to bugger off... that got him kicked into jail. I thought o well pay the fine and learn not to talk back to the guard... Jailor wanted 100gold, paid, door didnt open, paid 200 gold, door didnt open, paid 300 gold, door didnt open, paid 400 gold door didnt open....

At that point i cried HEEEEEELP to Nastr0nd. He let my character out. Now everytime Dael is within visual range of the city guard, he gets approached by the guard. A reset didnt cure it.

I hope this explains the problem in enough details.

The harassment stopped :)

Good to know there is cure, but is the cause known too?

I will just consider it a bug and just pretend it didnt happen, as i dont want to RP bugs. (are we even supposed/allowed to?)

No you are not supposed to RP Bugs, I know sometimes its a pain, but that is how it goes.

For the record this exact thing happened to one of my characters when I first started playing Hala. I DID RP the bug for a bit before realizing the mistake, telling everyone how stupid the guards were in Nags.

Glad you got fixed :D

Just noting this is still going on, Garthond's having the same experiences, including the jailing and not getting released upon payment of fine, only he got himself out of jail (yay for not being LG.....:+)......)

This is still happening. My half-elven palemaster Elradra has been minding her manners while visiting Nagritch, but the guards seem to have an issue with her. Normally I choose an option to peacefully leave the area but tonight chose to see what happens with the "bugger off" option instead.

Jail cell, fines that increase with each conversation with the guard, and a door that won't unlock is what happens.

Can you get yourself out or do you need help? I recommend going invisibly through Nagritch for awhile (that's how the drow do it ;)

Looking at things in the toolset the door shouldn't unlock, the script should jump the player out of the cell (like they had been jumped into it). Not feeling completely clear on what the tag of the waypoint should be or where the player should be being jumped to. I don't see a suitable waypoint in either the Courthouse, the Government District outside that, or the Market District where the Guards loiter to harass people. Wonder if it got deleted way back when the airships got moved and the area north of the market stopped being the docks.

Need sleep. Will look again sometime. Elrada had escaped by herself, reimbursed the gold and set her to not be banished from Nagritch, which apparently solved her problem with the guards.

Exported area to test and double-check what the waypoint tag should be. Edited script to 'say' what "sGuardof + sJUMPTO" resulted in, then tried making a waypoint by that name, and that fixed it in the test. Have added a waypoint of the that name to the Nagritch Government District, just outside the door, in the main module and uploaded to 'To be Implemented'. Hopefully fixed when it is implemented.

Ok. Paid a 200 gp fine. That's on top of the 100 gp fine last time I visited. Still had to outrun the guards to get out of town. :( :(

Ummm... Think a DM tried fixing the problem on me already, but it didn't work. Guessing I just have to stay out of town?

Ok, this is getting ridiculous...

So, tried avoiding the guards. First trial: worked fine via stealth mode.
Second time: one of the buggers met me at the transition from residental to market. got charged 300 gp.
Third time, thought I got through, but got accosted *in the camp* and thrown in jail, pending a 400 gp fine...

And that is where our brave pixie and idiot duo will overnight. *sigh*
