  2. Queen Fina and King Tarrach charissa1066 Server Owner and Designer Joined: 04 Aug 2004 Posts: 4410 Posted: Fri Sep 17, 2004 12:53 am Post subject: Queen Fina and King Tarrach HRM Fina ingen Aeda, Queen of Annakolia A spirited and fiery woman, Queen Fina is dedicated to her people. Six years ago, she fought beside her husband, Tarrach, in the last Great Giant War. On the field of battle, she accepted the mantle of authority from her father, King Cariadoc. To this day she mourns him and wrestles with the futility of her attempts to revive her father. She blames herself despite the insistence of her advisors that his time to leave this world had come. Cariadoc passed over her older brother, Prince Emrys, who was in line to be king. On his death-bed, he renounced Emrys as unfit and gave rule of the kingdom to Fina and Tarrach. HRM Tarrach Alfson, King of Annakolia The son of the late King Cariadoc�s weapon master, Tarrach grew up at court. Wherever the royal family traveled, Tarrach�s family went. Princess Fina and Tarrach knew each other from childhood. Many times Tarrach protected Fina from the relentless teasing of her older brother, Prince Emrys. Tarrach, also, taught her how to protect herself. They studied and played together. Over the years, Fina and Tarrach�s friendship deepened into love. Six years ago, they married with King Cariadoc and Queen Irena�s blessings. In the midst of the wedding feast, a runner arrived from Fingar and the outskirts of Port City. Giant armies massed near Fingar. Would Port City come to Fingar�s aid? Tarrach and Fina took arms against the giants. Side-by-side they fought. King Caiadoc lead his troops into the battle. Hundreds fell on that day. The King himself was grievously wounded, but the giant armies lay defeated. _________________
  3. Lag - What is it?: More properly, lag refers to a delay in information exchanged between client and server, resulting in a hang with breaks immersion and can result in loss of control of one's character, with often unpleasant consequences. Players, however, tend to use the term 'lag' much more broadly, to refer to anything that causes a hang or break in play experience. Decoding their meaning is critical to understanding the problem that they're experiencing, and to fixing it, if indeed there's anything you can do - sometimes there isn't. So, for the remainder of this tutorial, we’re going to use the term 'lag' in this broader sense, and label actual lag 'connection lag'. Before we can discuss ways to prevent lag, we need to familiarize ourselves with the various types of issues that can give rise to interference with game play. Below is a rough listing. Connection Lag: Also called network lag, this arises from a problem with the connection between player and server. It can have a number of causes, including programs on the player's computer, their router, the server's router or programs, or somewhere in between. Connection lag can be detected by pinging the server, and checking ping times. A tracert will show where, roughly, the problem lies. Oftentimes there will be nothing you can do about this sort of lag, other than to assist the player in troubleshooting their system, or waiting out the network issue. If a ping results in an unusually high number, or the tracert fails at a certain jump, the problem is connection lag. Graphics Lag: This is one of the most common types of lag, and the one most mistaken by players as network lag, or as some other sort of problem external to their system. It isn't, for the most part. Graphics 'lag' occurs when the player's computer is overwhelmed with the graphical data it's getting, and fails to render it smoothly, resulting in poor frame rate, lockups, and occasionally more exotic issues. It is LARGELY a client-side issue, and they should take steps to fix it, like changing their graphics settings, or getting a different graphics card. There are, however, some things that a server op can and should do to prevent this sort of thing, which we'll go into below. If the 'lag' a player experiences is intermittent and coincides with times when a lot is happening on their screen, and other players on the server don't experience it when they do, the problem is likely graphics lag. Graphics lag can often also be detected by having the player hit the tilde (~) key, type ‘fps’, and hit enter while playing, which displays the Frames Per Second they are seeing displayed. The higher the number, the better the framerate; the lower, the choppier (‘laggier’) things will appear. Server Lag: This is the final type of 'lag', and the one you have the most direct control over. It arises when the server is trying to do too much at once. The game engine begins to run on the hairy edge, and it stops doing certain things, based on priorities in the engine. This often is caused by a lot of players on a server, or poorly written scripts, or poorly built areas, or some combination of the above. Other times, there may be some technical issue at work, like a crippled fileserver, an out-of-control process, or insufficient RAM. Server lag is often the trickiest to detect, and can be diagnosed by ruling out both connection and graphics lag. In more extreme cases, however, it's not at all hard to detect, as low-priority processes cease. These include the updating of the game clock, resulting in the game being stuck permanently at a certain time, arresting the day/night cycle. There are other low-priority processes as well, but some are of such low priority that they will fail with even a couple players on a well-built server and module, so they're not of much help diagnostically. In this latter category fall things like persistent area of effect heartbeat scripts and spawned-in-placeable heartbeat scripts - they often won't fire, if they fire at all, even on a healthy server. Overrides are the same materials that CAN be put into haks. They are a way to use a hak on a server that does not support that hak. The problem is, on a public server you are causing trouble by doing so. One such rogue example: The animation override -- it is supposed to speed up and improve animation on the user's computer. The sequences send by the public server are rejected and new ones used -- positions on the client are calculated and sent to the server with anamation sequence number information that does not exist on the server. The server receives trash data from that client using the animation override and cannot deal with that trash data -- Data Stacks start to have unprocessable data in them -- everyone starts to rubberband as the system tries to deal with the spurious data. A cascade crash can occure from this or the server may just suffer lag untill restarted -- sometimes it can clear when the person leaves but other times the server can be messed up untill reload. Other overrides do simular damage, some are worse than others. Overrides for heads that are in the haks being used we allow people to use at creation of the character and then remove from the override directory. We have found that even materials in the haks, such as heads, can cause a problem from load confusion. Yes - certain SW firewalls can cause NWN lag. Multi use of the IP, such as down loading music or movies or SW while playing can cause lag. WHY? because the response is delayed at the client and that delay is going to cause lag. The server waits for responses from everyone before it will move forward. SOOO, the server is a slave to the slow responder draging everyone with them. BTW dialup has NOT been a serious lag problem, but DSL and Cable has -- because those with it think they can multi use it while playing. A basic DSL connection should not run MSN or other communications programs while playing -- bandwidth. Keeping ones computer clean of virus and spyware -- we had a DM get infected and until he got it fixed we suffered everytime he loged on. It was a quick identify the problem and get it fixed but there you can see, it can happen and is an ongoing process. Defrag, reorganize the hard drive, often -- weekly is not often enough. The NWN process of reading haks is critical to speed -- since we use the CEP there are haks to read but also the base Bioware stuff is in there own special haks which is perhaps not well known -- all is needed to run the game and that access can be slowed with a fragmented drive -- slowing response -- causing lag. The PRC has overrides that WILL cause serious trouble to a server if in the folder when loging onto a server not supporting PRC. Again this causes serious lag that the server NEVER recovers from and usually crashes it sometime in its agony of lag. The best policy is that NO overrideds be used, Optimise ones HD regularly, no SW firewalls while playing, and NO other internet activity on the IP line while playing and finally, clean from virus/spyware. The free Spyware cleaners are not able to take care of the problem -- I recomment Spysweeper.

    Spell Mastery System

    Spell Mastery System when a spell is cast an algorithm is figured and a die rolled (the higher your mastery, the harder to gain a new point) if the conditions are met a point of spell mastery is awarded - 0.01 The range is 0.01 to 100.00 At 4 interval enhancements to the spell take place at these points: - 25.00 - 50.00 - 75.00 and 100% Enhancements are custom for each spell Some spells might be longer duration or more damage or more missiles or whatever is the nature of the spell to enhance. Spellcasters gain power and duration in their spells with practice. For example, Magic Missile at 50% Mastery delivers 1-4 (+1); at 100% delivers 1-4 (+2) damage. Duration spells last longer. Kormai's Spellmastery - Kormai was one of the original players and good friend on Realms of Annakolia - His system first appeared on Crimson Spire, a PW by Bloo (creator of the DMFI). These two PWs, Crimson Spire, and Reams of Annakolia, are the ONLY two worlds to ever have Kormai's system. Casters may practice spellcasting on some place-ables, such as signs. The closer a character gets to 100% mastery the harder it becomes to learn. This system is similar to the PnP learned skill system in Runequest. Mastery is calculated after each successful spell casting. Each spell has its own mastery level. In other words, a spellcaster can have 10% mastery in casting Magic Missile and have 50% mastery in casting Light, only because the spellcaster has successfully cast Light more times than Magic Missile. Kormai's Spellmastery Algorithm Current Spell Mastery (CSM) x 10 = Learning Target Mastery Roll = random number between 0 and 999 If a player rolls over their CSM the character successfully learns and gains mastery Here's an example, Bart the Wizard has been adventuring in the Bain Mountains and Dark Forest. He cast Protection from Elements on himself, his familiar, and his friends many, many times and has gained 75% mastery in the spell. His Learning Target is 75 x 10 = 750. When he successfully casts the spell, Bart must roll over 750 on a D1000 to learn. In other words, Bart has only a 25 % chance of learning each time he casts Protection from Elements. _________________
  5. http://nwn.wikia.com/wiki/Experience_point Realms of Annakolia used the base XP tables provided by Bioware - nothing is modified in any way - Cave Bats have raised CR to help new or low level players easily level to the double digits. Quoting from the NWN Wiki: in: Game rules, Character development Experience point Edit Share Experience points (XP) are an abstract measure of the experience, knowledge, and training that a player character (PC) gains while adventuring. They are usually gained from defeating monsters and completing quests, with some modules also granting experience for various other achievements, such as using skills or exploring new areas. Experience points themselves do not directly affect gameplay* but are instead the sole factor that determines when character levels can be taken. It takes 1,000 XP times a PC's current level to reach the next level; see level progression for a table. *In a few cases, some details of gameplay depend on earned levels, rather than taken levels. In this sense, experience points can directly affect gameplay, but only to the extent that they determine character level. Monster formula Edit The formula used for monster XP awards is, according to BioWare, quite complicated, and though based on the Dungeons & Dragons system, it takes into consideration many factors. The major factors are that tougher (higher challenge rating) monsters are worth more XP, tougher (higher level) PCs receive less XP (unless effective character level alters this), and larger parties (including associates) receive less XP per PC.[1] Some of this information is retrieved by the engine from the data files xptable.2da, racialtypes.2da, classes.2da and xpbaseconst.2da. Playtesting has revealed that the formula for the standard XP awarded for killing creatures appears to be (base XP * XP scale) * (multiclass penalty * party size penalty) rounded down to an integer, where the base XP is retrieved from xptable.2da — with the row being the PC's earned character level (which may be more than the levels actually taken) and the column being the enemy's challenge rating; the XP scale is multiplied by 10 then treated as a percentage (so "10" means "100%"); the multiclass penalty is expressed as 100%, 80%, or 60% (rather than as the amount lost); and the party size penalty is 4 / (3 + party size). The first two factors are controlled by the module builder, while the latter two are under the control of players. In the original campaign the challenge rating is further modified by a bonus from the effective character level. Example: An elven druid 5 / sorcerer 1 has two henchmen, a familiar, an animal companion, a summoned creature, and a dominated creature. This character now suffers an 80% multiclass penalty and a 4/10 party size penalty and will only gain 0.8 * 0.4 = 32% of the module's base XP for kills. XP adjustments for party size and multiclass penalty Party size no penalty 20% penalty 40% penalty 1 100% 80% 60% 2 80% 64% 48% 3 67% 53% 40% 4 57% 46% 34% 5 50% 40% 30% 6 44% 36% 27% 7 40% 32% 24% 8 36% 29% 22% 9 33% 27% 20% 10 31% 25% 18%

    Mystic -Updated 2018-

    The Mystic is an ordinary individual who finds a new untapped power within the depths of his mind. Where this power came from remains unknown to many; if the individual wishes it the power can develop into many shapes or forms. The power, referred to as Mystic Energy, can harm or heal, shape or destroy. The individuals wielding the power each choose their own path and development of their new powers. Mystics are not telepaths or fortune telling psychics. Their power however is power of the mind. As such the Mystic uses her intelligence or wisdom modifier as relevant spell ability, using the higher of the two. The relevant spell ability is used in the different Mystic Abilities to increase the power, damage class and/or duration. As the Mystic focuses her power by use of her mind, she cannot wear headgear such as helmets. Shielding her head disrupts the free flow of Mystic Power from her mind, making it impossible to use her Mystic Abilities. Mystic Abilities, like spells, cannot be used while polymorphed either. Once a Mystic exhausts her Mystic Energy she needs to go into a state of meditation to regain it. During this state she cannot act in any way and is especially vulnerable to enemy attacks. The Mystic gains 30 points of Mystic Energy at level one; she gains an additional 10 points for every following level in the Mystic Class.  - Hit Die: d6 - Proficiencies: - - Skill Points: 4 + Int Modifier -Skills: Appraise, Bluff, Concentration, Heal, Hide, Intimidate, Lore, Move Silently, Search, Spellcraft -Attack Bonus growth: Mid (Bard/Rogue) -Saving Throws: Monk -Primary Attribute: IntFA REQUIREMENTS: Feats: Skill Focus Concentration, Skill Focus Spellcraft Skills: Lore 8 ranks ABILITIES: Level 1: Mystic Stats, Meditation, Mysticism, Mystic Ability 1x 2: Mystic Ability 1x 3: Mystic Ability 1x 4: - 5: Mystic Ability 1x 6: Mystic Ability 1x 7: - 8: Mystic Ability 1x 9: Mystic Ability 1x 10: - 11: Mystic Ability 1x 12: Mystic Ability 1x 13: - 14: Mystic Ability 1x 15: Mystic Ability 1x 16: - 17: Mystic Ability 1x 18: Mystic Ability 1x RESTRICTIONS: - Cannot wear helmets. - Requires Mystic Energy to cast spells/use abilities.

    Classes Overview

    The Annakolia Prestige Classes The Annakolia Prestige Classes were originally started as a project to include classes from the now long defunct server Crimson Spire into the world. Some classes indeed still have their roots in Bloo's Crimson Spire classes, however over time much has been altered and reworked. Also, with time a large number of classes have been added to the server. To this day forward work on the classes continues and I continue to try to improve them and also occasionally add something new. Lately, due to time constraints I haven't made any new classes and mostly focussed upon reworking what is already there. However, with 20+ new custom classes it will be some time before players have grown bored, especially in light of the versatility of certain classes. What follows below is an alphabetic list with classes and their basic requirements. For further information one can click on the name of the class which will link to a class specific topic which gives a description of the class and also of its abilities (were available/required).
