    A strange dream

    Piety turns restlessly in her sleep. Suddenly she is in the Gnomar golem laboratory. Professor Marcus is there, wearing a heart listening device around his neck and carrying some sort of board he consults and writes on from time to time. He hums and gets her to say Awwww. "Your battery is dead" suddenly he turns into Professor Cog. He installs a cooling fan and tuts over the flux capacitor installed by Professor Marcus. Piety mumbles in her sleep but sinks deeper into the dream. "Ah. Here's the problem " Cog mutters. "This will work much better" and hangs an amulet around her neck. He thumps herhard on the chest to activate the amulet. Piety wakes with a start. "Goodness, what a dream!" buut in her leeft hand is a fan and around her neck is a strange amulet. Oddly she can smell the faintest whiff of baked bread.

    Hello from Feather

    Hello, my name is Feather. I have been playing on Annakolia since 2005. My login name is Lightasa_Feather and you can see me on the DM side as DM_Feather or sometimes DM_Mousewoman. I totally admire the story telling abilities of my fellow DMs, but my chaotic schedule and grasshopper brain lends itself more to one-off or location based games. They are often are based in the Lovecraft influenced corner of the server...Arkham, the Miskatonic University and environs or tour based adventures in little travelled areas lead by renowned travel guide Edbur Hillbert. My PCs of note: Fetha Kelmer (nee Willobee), Ludmilla Drachenova (visit her wax museum in Annakol), and Luli Steinhammer (one of the older members of the Steinhammer clan). I am located on the West Coast of British Columbia so am in the Pacific time zone. This means I am on the server late, late, late for most of the East Coast and beyond. I can be flagged down almost any time in the evening on Discord for assistance or some game playing.

    New Hardware - New Dedicated Computer

    The old server would not auto reload when Microsoft Windows 10 decided to update and does restarts. We can restart the NWN server remotly if that happens ONLY if the machine is up and running - something the old machine refused to do but the new machine does as it should. Other advantages - 6 times faster loading of the NWN server (from 6 minutes + to 1 minute load time). As stated above - more memory, faster processor, larger hard drive. The end result - all is better - now with the upcoming October 4th internet speed upgrade to 25 up and 5 down - this should really help - finally - we are working on finding a way to move from WiFi to cable for the server. Years ago it was cable but the modem location is moved - need to work out a new solution for that.

    Game Summary

    [September 9, 2018] The 4 Steinhammers make their way down the ramp from the Historic District Park. The Mysterious Woman and 3 gypsy travelers watch on. *Gypsy traveler, exotic accent* Seems we are not the only one looking for the bard. *Mysterious woman with warm smile* No, no we are not.... make sure our guests are.... comfortable. I wouldn't want anything unfortunate to happen to them.
  12. I like all of them. Yes, please!
  13. I can make most of these, if not all, into NWN portraits - if you like what you see here let me know and I will make and distribute these in a steam portrait pack with some other portraits not in our current pack.
  14. More than 100 female dwarf portraits - some elves, fairy, half orc and others as well. A few males but mostly female portraits. Portraits.7zPortraits.7 z
  15. Mom said she and dad got lots of gems and treasure in Moria - Come-on lets go you lilly livered pansies ---
  16. Steinhammer Dwarves - the next generation! Children of the Steinhammer clan are growing up - teachers have brought them to a point where they are stepping out on their own - BUT - they were told to NEVER neverr NEVER go to that place (mines of Moria) - guess where they went first. Specs for next gen Steinhammer dwarf - I had them make a brand new dwarf - we had three players and got one barbarian and two fighters working on dwarven defender. They started at the base level one with the free level up to level two - some gear was given and by the end of the two hours they were level 7. We could use some casters - clerics, sorcerers, wizards, druids, bards However nobody is twisting arms on classes - make what you want I do suggest not attempting arcane archer grin

    Peony's Prayers

    Great Baker, It was good to see Dimestus again. He is looking good, although I think he could stand to eat a few pies. He needs to fill out a bit. Please St. Marcus, make sure Dimestus gets at least the required seven meals a day, preferably hobbit-sized. I met a nice, strong fellow, Kothgar. Boy, was I glad that Mister Kothgar came along when we got magicked to that giant spider infested place. Dear me! I promised to bake Mister Kothgar some cookies. I will have to find out where he lives to send some by pixie mail. An elf named Elemirre joined us later in that horrible spider maze. She seemed as lost as we were. She definitely needs to eat some pie. Elves are so skinny. St. Marcus. that's just not right. Most important, please bless the Gaffer. He's so confused. Among other things, he thinks Moronica is eight-years-old! Oh! I know what I can do. I'll fix the Gaffer a nice Shepard's Pie and some cookies. That should fix him right up. Thank you, St. Marcus! Amen

    Before you make a monk - take a look at the Bane Mountain Monastery - and that is oriental, kung Fu type monks. Also The Asian/Oriental world of Tarowa is monk origin friendly. My take on monks is old and futile since TSR took them out and Wizards of the Coast put them right back in. I have learned to live with them. The world of Annakolia is monk friendly.
  20. What Players are saying about Happy Hour at the Feisty Chicken ooc note. I enjoyed todays Feisty Chook Happy Hour. I liked the way the group acted together....and the pacing was spot on ....with [for me] new monsters and new places....and enough combat to satisfy that bit but also time to chat to people as well. Thanks to the DM team. OOC: I must admit, I have shied away from getting involved in campaigns (or even large groups) because I am new to RP and the game. Last night was the first happy hour I participated in (just watched last week). I had a blast. I am hoping to return every week! As always another fun time at the Chicken! Thanks to the DM's and the party for another adventure for Elly to chat about with friends! *********************************** Role Play Adventure Battle Puzzle solving fun These are the things one can expect - games do not always start at the Feisty Chicken - many that do start there don't stay. Each week is a different adventure - you never know what to expect.

    Barry, thank you for the info. I spent several hours reading through the wealth of information on this forum last night. I have a better grasp of what you and others have created now. Actually several of your old introductory posts from 2010, that I assume were from the old forum, helped quite a bit. I have no issues with this server not being a Faerun setup, it's just what I'm used to. I'm looking forward to learning the lore of this world. Rogueking, I'm very excited to delve into this new fantasy setting! So far I'm on my third character build, but they are all more or less the same, just had to make some corrections based on the lore and rules of this world. So far my only experience is the castle basement training dummies, but I'm very excited to play a new class that I've never experienced, the Temple Raider. I've also been working on my character bio, but I typed it all in the bio at character creation. Now I see that I should have just wrote it on the forum. I'll work on that over time. I'm glad there is an extensive history to pull from. I am sad to see that you dislike monks so much, Barry. A monk does not have to be "Oriental" (I would like to point out that this term is now seen as a pejorative, but I understand that it was a different time over 30 years ago), the Greeks were practicing martial arts as have the people's of Latin America. I might make a monk character that fits into the lore of this world just so you can experience that. Also keep in mind the far east had access to Europe even before the middle ages. I am probably not as well versed in Medieval history as you, but I do know a few things. Living in Europe as a youth for several years has helped, along with some college art history. I look forward to getting to know everyone, both IC and I OOC!

    If one is looking at our diety list with Farum/Forgotten Realms glasses - Massive mistakes will be made. For example: Tyr is from Norse Mytholgy - not Faerun (I do think Norse Mythology predates Faerun). Loki is also from Norse mythology - an important point since there actually is no Tyr on Annakolia and Tyr is being presented by some other god. Tyr on Annakol is said to be one thing but in reality is the god of punishment and torture - and they do not care how or where they get their victims to torture. Torture and justice are seen as one and the same by Tyr followers and that is how it is presented by the god. Yes you will find many surprises like this on Annakolia - we are not the Forgotten Realms nor Faerun in any way. If you see a forgotten Realms god - That god is probably one that is from a real ancient pantheon and thus predates Faerun and the Forgotten Realms by centuries or millennia.

    Great to hear! I'm fairly new to the server as well and there is NO shortage of places to explore. You will absolutely love the customization of this place and the settings. I won't spoil much, but I just ran through the caves of Moria from the LoTR and it was AMAZING!
