Setting Information / Faction: Lost Village
« on: July 30, 2019, 06:57:46 am »
A village lost in time, now has appeared in the woods to the Southwest of Southbank port. Its history has been lost in time with those who reside within the village at the time it disappeared. The village itself appears at nightfall ( 18:00 ) and disappears at Daybreak (6;00 ).

Requirements:

Races: human mostly of course but open to other races that may have been seeking to hide from the Arcanists.

The Village: Disappears during the day and appears at night due to reason that need to be confirmed.  The village has been in a time wrap due to a device a group of Sorcerers made to hide themselves from the Arcanists. Now after 100 years the village is active and adventurers leave to see what is happening in the area.  Once you leave the village your connection is lost but can still return but for now when the village disappears you are left behind. Neutral character to start from NG > TN > NE then we move on from there and see where it takes us. I have some things and thoughts but I am interested to see where the players take it. It has a base and a church plus an amulet ( that acts as a key ) and now Bracers that act like a watch to help with RP knowing when to return to gain access to the village.

Once in game you will see a Device in the middle of the Village, that causes the Village to disappear. Once the village is gone it leaves behind a path and small walls and returns at 18:00 and disappears at 6:00

Gods of the Three:
Shar ( NE ) -
Jannath ( NG )
Tyche ( TN )

NPC of Note:

Tolinus Hotblood - Dwarven Sorcerer who cares for the Device and other arcane natters in the village

Galia Yanolemend -Half Elf Cleric of Shar

Mathell - Human Cleric of Jannath

Aniko - Human Cleric of Tyche

Saturday, July 6th, 2019 - Sunday, July 14th, 2019



Netheril: Age of Magic is holding an upcoming week where new, returning and existing players will be encouraged to make a brand new character. 
An event, especially for new characters, will be held during the week, and applications for sub-races and factions will have lower requirements than usual.
New players to N:AoM will find a role-playing focused persistent world with friendly players and DM’s. 
Returning players will find new quests and areas to explore have been added, along with incremental changes to the factions, maps, and plots. 
This week will be a great opportunity to start or get back into our server.  We are especially looking for US and Euro timezone players,
but all are welcome!

What support will there be?

The team will be in game running those lower level quests/events to cater for those new lower level character.
Some of them may involve current quests that could be spiced, landmarks and other locations or stories in and around the region.
The new character plotline will commence during this week.  Neutral alignments ( ie NG/TN/NE) are best suited.  If you would like more details on making a character for this event, such as suggested races and classes, please PM DM Rainman

General Discussion / Open for Ideas for a Community Week
« on: June 23, 2019, 01:41:04 pm »
Open for Ideas for a Community Week

We are looking to do a Community Week in the coming weeks. The date would be around 6th July to 14th July ( at this stage to give you any idea and when some of the team would be around ).

It would be targeting new players and characters to get involved in the server and factions.

Some of the current Ideas would be ...

- Easy of access to Subrace and Monster Application options

- Easy of access to Faction entry levels

- Special Story/Plot line ( holding back on details but would be seeking Neutral Alignments at this stage from NG > TN > NE )


So this is where we open it up to you guys, to tell us what you would like to see during this Community Week. Thoughts and ideas.

Please be clear and post in a positive nature

Thanks in advance

Announcements / Transparency
« on: February 27, 2019, 12:25:50 pm »
To maintain transparency with the player base and community we feel it is important to touch on a situation that happened recently that has seen us lose a player. As a team, we need to make the community and the players aware that sometimes we will make a decision that you might not necessarily agree with these decisions are based around the setting and in an attempt to maintain the integrity of our major NPC's and the overall server direction.

At times a decision will be made regarding the progression of the story that you may not necessarily agree with these decisions are never made on an OOC level it is all about server consistency. This does not mean that we discourage personal player plots though you need to be aware that sometimes the outcome may not be what you expect. And like us, you need to roll with the story progression and accept both positive and negative outcomes.

Despite what might get thrown around at times when emotions are high the DM team is always willing to go above and beyond to help and encourage our players. Never be afraid to come and speak with us as our door is always open but just be mindful that you may not always hear what you would like.

Thank you
Netheril DM Team

Netheril: Age of Magic



Greetings and welcome to Netheril: Age of Magic, a Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition Persistent Roleplaying World.

Setting

Based around what the Netherese dubbed "The Golden Age", the year is 1852 and marks the beginning of this glory, when the nation was at the very pinnacle of its power.
Our setting is focused mainly on the Floating Enclave dubbed "Valstiir" named after the Lady Archwizard that created it.
Common knowledge to all inhabitants of the City is that Lady Valstiir was gifted a vision by a mysterious oracle known as the "Terraseer".

The Seer spoke of a rich and prosperous land to the west, its earth filled with countless precious gems, forests and rivers and snow-topped mountains teeming with life and natural resources, ripe for the taking.
The Archwizard council after much disagreement came to the conclusion that their newest of Archwizards, Lady Valstiir, and her city must follow this oracle's guidance and go to these blossoming lands where it now resides over the land-based city of Hadrian. It invites its citizens, and newcomers alike to participation in, and exploration of the city, its politics and and far-stretching surrounding lands.


Systems

Netheril: Age of Magic boasts beautifully designed areas including quest and exploration areas for you to fully immerse yourself within the setting. We have both DM and Player run factions that can be joined, which are both encouraged and supported by the Administration.
We are an active server, with a DM team spanning all timezones and constantly looking to expand our Dungeon Master team.
There are a few unique systems with the plans to continue to develop more as we continue the content roll out.
The server features a fully instanced quest system which allows players and their parties to delve into the darkest dungeons and save the fair maiden.
Boats and airships run a travel network where you may face off against pirates who board your boat or creatures who crash upon the decks.
A death system that has the option to subdue your foe.
The  complex crafting system offers hours of exploration, covering smithing, jewelry crafting, leather-working and many more.
A custom mini-event system that triggers without DM intervention.
To reward roleplay, we have a unique, custom system that awards XP in regular increments - without needing DMs to be present.

Level Range

Our main level range is from 2-15; most of the characters would sit around this level. However, it is possible to get to level 20 which is the hard cap.
Progressing past level 20 will require player and DM support and generally will only be achieved by those characters who are renowned and champions of the world.


An Invitation: Join us for New Character Week

Friday, January 25th, 2019 - Sunday, February 4th, 2019


What is New Character Week?

We are asking current, older and new players to the community, to start a new character during this week. We will have a short turn around on application character (mostly Monster races and those high end Races) and easy access to the start level in a DM faction.

Why are we doing this?

We have been working with other servers for awhile now and these servers one being Arelith have kindly offered to run a advertisement for us about our server. We are hopeful that this will bring new players to the server and by having as many new character at the same time, will hopefully cause more RP, fun, and stories for those that choose to join our community and server.
What about current characters and plots?

We will back off on some plot for the week and/or add to them at a different angle to add interest to the new characters and any new players to the server. You can of course play your existing character and continue with your story and any plots you might be doing, but the focus for the week will be running lower level events to bring those new character up to speed with the server, with us showcasing Netheril from the Valstiir Enclave, to the Elven town of Nualla'n or to Sullivan’s black market port... and many other locations for your stories.

What support will there be?

The team will be in game running those lower level quests/events to cater for those new lower level character. Some of them may involve current quests that could be spiced, landmarks and other locations or stories in and around the region.

What is on offer?

Subraces Half Dryad, Tiefling, Aasimar

Monsters Duergar, Drow

Setting Information / Faction: 14th Legion
« on: December 28, 2018, 11:38:29 pm »
The 14th Legion



Brief Overview:

High Commander:
Lord Turi Dukarrus- Current Leader of House Dukarrus

Grand Marshall:
Benedict Paxx - Founder of the 14th Legion

Chief of Justice:
Uris Paxton - Justiciar of Amaunator

Warden:
Milda Lutton - Current Overseer of Hadrian Garrison


The 14th Legion of the Dukarrus army. Originally kept a secret they operated in the shadows for Lord Turi Dukarrus, his own personal unit that acted as a “Internal Police” of his legions. Members of the 14th legion often investigated other sections of the Dukarrus army rooting out and publicly executing anyone wishing to become a turncoat or was found to be secretly plotting against the army.

However, times have changes and with House Dukarrus retreating from the field of battle, Lord Dukarrus sets the 14th to another task; bringing the fear of the Netherese empire to Hadrian.

With the great losses of life whilst fighting the Cult, the 14th legion were deployed to Hadrian to fix its current lawlessness. They make their punishments very public and rely on a level of fear to enforce law, using things like branding and burning traitors alive in the town square.

They adopt a unique outlook amongst the army, denying the use of and focusing on the resistance of Arcane magic. Legion chemists ensure that their recruits also focus on the enhancement of the human physical form, using alchemical stimulants and an often deadly and painful initiation process.

Due to the ever growing desire to perfect the human condition, only humans are accepted into the 14th, primarily as fighters with occasional clerics.

On very rare cases non-martial classes such as are accepted as specialty units, but this is not common, and any users of Arcane are immediately turned away.

Messages from the Enclave / Letters sent to the Noble Houses
« on: November 15, 2018, 08:19:24 am »
*letter sent to each Noble House Lord *

Noble Houses of Valstiir,

I require the full resources from each Noble house and any allies you can provide, for the upcoming battle to remove the threat of Necropolis Enclave. We have been having minor battles and skirmishes but the time has come to remove the enclave from the sky.

You are required to do the following, listed in order ...

- Protect the Valstiir Enclave at all costs

- Protect assets on the ground, like the town of Hadrian

- Advance on the Necropolis troops on the ground and within the Enclave

I will be using a Heliobeam to bring down the Necropolis, so the defence of the Valstiir Enclave is of most importance. Some of you will be aware of plans to make this happen and the efforts to bring me the required resources to make the Heliobeam fully operational.

You each have areas of influence and expect your full effort in these last days.

Victory is our only option.

Archmage Valstiir
