Announcements / Server Going Down
« on: July 04, 2020, 01:01:18 pm »
As you are all aware we are moving forward with a new version of Netheril and with that in mind we will be removing the current module from the live machine in the coming days, along with this we will be vault wiping so if you would like to save a copy of your pc I encourage you to log in and do so before the vaults are cleared.
We will endeavor to keep you all up to date with what we are doing and encourage you to do some playtesting when we have V2 up and need some helpers.

New Features / Horses
« on: January 17, 2020, 10:49:53 am »
The horse system is now up and running, you can buy various horses that range in prices.

The most expensive will have perks like saddlebags that will store equipment, the horses can not be taken into quests or major cities and you will have to use the hitching posts to hitch your horse. You can unhitch at anything post and you can also go back and stable your horse at the stables.

Enjoy and please let us know if you find any bugs.

Announcements / Gentle Reminder- Please Read

It has come to our attention that there have been some rumblings behind the scenes about various characters, DMs and overall playstyles and as a team, we would like to address a few things. If you have an issue with how something was handled or how you perceive an event was handled it is up to you to come and speak with one of the admin team who can better help you understand the situation. It is however not productive to the server or the community as a whole to sit behind the scenes and tell as many people as you can or whoever will listen how unfair you think something is without having all the information, this breeds a hostile and toxic environment that we all want to avoid.

All of you have been made aware that the admin team on Netheril is willing to discuss issues, plots or anything that you find impacts your gaming experience and often when you have all the information that we do it suddenly becomes apparent you should have spoken to us before turning to the peanut gallery. We are not here to ruin anyone's gaming experience we have developed this server with the vision in mind that we all have a place to come and have some fun in, so if you are seeing something we aren't aware of or feel wronged by something please come and speak with us and know there will be no negative effects for being open and honest with us we would much prefer this then listening to the rumours that eventually filter back down the line to us.

General Discussion / Current WIP
« on: October 28, 2019, 03:47:28 am »
Current WIP

Merchant stalls are being finished up and will be available for PC’s to sell their wares. How it works is you will be able to buy a shop and have a merchant manned it for you, he will need to be paid a wage. People can sell to your store if you give the shop money to use to purchase items. We will post a more detailed –how-to guide-.

Player mounts are in the final stages, we will have various options for you guys to purchase starting from unsaddled mounts, saddled mounts, saddlebag mounts and armoured mount. These will be priced accordingly, the saddlebag mounts are what we are waiting on before we can release it. At present, the contents that you add into the bags are not persistent and we are waiting for a fix for those before rolling them out.

A version 2 of our hak pack is being worked on, this will include a new tileset, the paintings, fixes for any busted content and new spells for all classes will be implemented. There are other small things added to the hakpack that doesn’t require mentioning.

Domains we have not started on yet, we wanted to get the spells in and working first and then we will look at domains.

We are looking at implementing our old ranger tracking system for rangers and druids, the system is written we just have to change some of the outdated information.

New random loot generator is being looked at, it creates items on the fly for use on quests and in random exploration areas. This system also has a feature that has loot sets, these can be based off old player characters for example “Insert PC name” Cloak of Doom, Ring of Resistance and so on, collect a full set and it unlocks specific benefits.
Still plotting along adding new merchants and updating our loot found in quests.

Areas are still having the flavourful text and small points of interest added.

Continuously we are looking to add new quests and exploration areas.

Setting Information / Server Rules and General Information -- Please Read
« on: September 27, 2019, 04:46:10 am »

Before entering the world of Netheril, we encourage you to read this post, so that you may understand not only our rules, but what you can do to enhance your experience while playing with us.

Rules: These rules are in place to ensure that all players have a fair, quality environment in which to roleplay and have fun. Please be mindful of them.

  • Language: Cussing while in character, or in a non-hostile manner out of character is fine. But the line is drawn when out of character use of language becomes offensive and hostile.
  • No OOC(Out of Character) hostilities. This a community, and such drama will not be tolerated.
  • Harassment: Both OOC(Out of Character), and IC(In Character) be sure not to step on toes or harass other players. This is a touchy subject, and it is best to use common sense. As a general rule of thumb, if someone asks out of character for you to stop, it might be best to do so.
  • No sexually abusive roleplay, including but not limited to; rape, sexual assault, sexual harassement, etc.
  • No self-harm or suicide. You can die a glorious death in battle fighting your nemesis, but we ask that the grim tone of self-inflicted wounds not be displayed.
  • No forum threads or storylines dealing with children and pregnancy.
  • PvP will not be translated to out of character conflict. For further rules, please refer to the following link: https://netheril.net/forums/index.php?topic=1856.0
  • Alt characters should not be involved in PvP or stories that involve your main character. If you are playing a main character that is looking to earn a perk in-game we expect this to be the character you play most of the time, we also ask that app characters get your undivided attention.

Announcements / PvP and Rules Regarding Monsters
« on: September 26, 2019, 12:54:08 am »

•   Common courtesy should be given when meeting for the first time, even though you may want to kill it should be a beat down and warning on first encounter.
If a monster encounters a non-monster race they too should show the same consideration. This is to promote interaction and conflict without the instant win.

•   Monsters should not be going into Hadrian or other major villages that would normally kill them on sight- this does not include Sullivan’s Port, The Shelf and Patrician Trading Post.

•   Sullivan’s Port is a neutral zone and if you plan to engage in PvP you need a DM to oversee, Sullivan does not like the conflict in his port and will remove heads if it is done without his say so.

•   Playing a monster is a lonely life and more suited to group concepts as isolation is part of the deal. The DM’s are happy to discuss new additions that you would like to see out in Sullivan’s so please send them to one of us.

•   Monsters on the rare occasion can be accepted into the main hubs, this would be based around the concept and application and is based on a case by case basis.

General Discussion / Increase magic item levels -- Please read and respond.
« on: September 19, 2019, 12:51:16 am »
Increase magic item levels. We understand some find it frustrating with the current loot level on the server and the time period we are in so we are proposing an increase in the overall loot level, including craftable items. Quests items, DM given items and Faction gear.
Example of this would be
+4 for items for things you can find on quests or in the exploration areas.
+5 and above for DM given

Edit: for clarification we will have a system that is colour coded with level restrictions for the top tiered items so we don’t have level 5 PCs running around in +5 armour and so on.

General Discussion / Death System Changes -- Please read and respond.
« on: September 19, 2019, 12:35:33 am »
We would like some input from our players, so you guys. We know that you have been unhappy for a while with the death system and given it is you guys who play here to have some fun we are looking for ways to change it up. So these are a few options we have considered, place a vote and if you have suggestions not listed explain in the thread.

Announcements / Rules: Please Read
« on: August 03, 2019, 12:23:59 am »
As a team, we thought it would be important to touch on some rules that should be adhered to without exception. We want to be clear on this point, these rules are not up for negotiation or bending. We are a fantasy setting game where people come to have fun and escape the problems and harshness of life. The following rules have and do still affect people in real life or have impacted their lives in terrible ways.
The following have no place in our setting:

1) Self-harm and suicide.
2) Forces sexual encounters and assaults.
3) Any threads or storylines that deal with children including pregnancy.

If you have any questions as to the reasons behind these rules then please approach one of our DM's and they will be happy to explain it to you.

Thank you
Netheril Team

Announcements / Discord - Expected Behaviour
« on: November 02, 2018, 12:08:59 am »
So looks like I need to add another note here and I'm making it very clear this time so there is no confusion. People need to stop calling one another out on here for things that happen IC these are things that you should be dealing with in-game and not poisoning players oocly about IC events the next time I read back and see it happening in the main channel I will ask the team to consider an official warning for the players involved. There is no need for any response to this, just wanted everyone to be clear where we stood.

Announcements / How to address concerns or offer suggestions.
« on: July 14, 2018, 03:43:38 am »
As a DM Team we want to let the players know that if you have an issue or concern, you need to come and speak with one of us. Speaking behind the scenes to other players will not solve the issues you need to speak with one of the DM’s so we can address any concerns or feedback that you may have.

If we are not made aware of the issue we can’t as team look at addressing it, we are an approachable team and welcome players feedback and suggestions. This also extends to if you have an issue with a DM, you do not need to try to deal with it alone, and you can speak with one of the other team members.

Also, be aware that the DM team have lives outside of the game, if you do not get an answer instantly to your questions we will get to you when we have time, if however you have not heard from us please give us a friendly nudge in 24hrs.

Announcements / Dropping Rubbish
« on: July 13, 2018, 01:21:31 pm »
It has been brought to our attention that people are leaving loot bags around in various locations, this will and does create issues so please do not leave your bags or useless equipment on the ground. There are trash barrels around so please use those, leaving equipment laying around in highly populated areas can cause lag so please do the right thing and use the bins.

General Discussion / How should we handle applications?
« on: January 24, 2018, 12:05:33 pm »
We had a discussion earlier on discord about applications and I would like to ask how would you, the community like to see them handled?

Someone suggested it be done through a merit type system;

Where you basically earned the right to play high-tier subrace/special position with how well you played your previous character.
The merits can come from DMs/players. Say, if a player liked the encounter you had with him, he'd give you a point or something. The DM could do it too.

Thoughts on this?

I like this idea, there would have to be things in place to limit the number of times you could vote for the same person so friends were not just handing them out to friends
I would say there should be a limit on the number you get per real life week X amount
There should be a way for DM's to review who voted for who.

If you have an opinion I would love to hear it, these also are just my thoughts I do not speak for the team on this matter, we have yet to discuss how we want to handle applications and perks.

Setting Information / The Various Races of Netheril
« on: January 21, 2018, 12:31:10 am »

Humans of the Netherese Empire believed themselves to be the chosen race based on their ability to control magic like no other race upon the face of the world. Those who were unable to wield magic were considered less cultured and treated accordingly, seen as nothing more than primitive beings. The Netherese, however, had a certain amount of respect for the Dwarves even with their inability to use magic, this was made up by their abilities in various trades, from stonemasonry to metal work.

Humans; The numerous Barbarians were an exception to the Humans of the Netherese Empire, many residing within the vast open lands of the Patrician Plains. Many of these tribes were very superstitious and fearful of the use of magic, only trusting in their own shamans and primitive priests.
There were various tribes of barbarians who lived a semi-nomadic life throughout the wide grasslands west of the Netheril River, each tribe having its own strange customs and rites. The barbarians rarely posed much of a threat directly to the empire because of these divisions and would often war amongst themselves more often than not.

A single exception to this rule was a decade ago when a barbarian Warlord "Lord Xurrios" united many of the barbaric hordes to resist the Netherese expansion. A long and bloody war followed. Eventually, the Legions of House Dukarrus left the barbarians defeated but many wildmen reminisce of a time when they could challenge even the Netherese.

Today, however, all of the barbarians hold, at best, a great mistrust towards the Humans of the Netherese, at worst, they would kill them on sight.
