The University is a buzz with a group of apprentices researching and collecting information on a Lost Village, that in the past had a connection with one of there own. What it means to the University and the apprentices is unsure at this time but many an apprentice has burnt the midnight candles in search of information.

Talk around the Markets district is the bodies that have been found near and around the creek dock area. The unusual thing is the state of the bodies, with little or no blood found within them. The Western Trading Company has dismissed these reports as silly rumours.

Word on the streets of the Slums District is that there was an attempt on the leader of Diiriís Boys gang. It is unsure what the result was but the gang has tightened its grasp on the area, with more than normal gang members walking the street and alleyways.

Birds are seen circling the marshlands in the morning and in the eve. Some say there must be food there, other say this is not normal for birds. Either way the farmers still complain about crop looses to crows.

Mechanical Changes / Pick Pocket System
« on: August 09, 2021, 04:27:49 am »
Key point for changes to the Pick Pocket system ...

Pickpocket must be in range of their target. They use the normal pickpocket methods.

Pickpocket is presented with a Timing Bar of 60 seconds. All actions must be done within this timing bar. If the timing bar fills, the pickpocket is revealed.

Pickpocket is presented with an inventory of the targets items that match a filter of...

* Can't be bigger than 1x2 or 2x1
* Can't cost more than 2000 gold (NWN Gold items are weird)
* Can't be plot
* Can't be non-droppable

Pickpocket may choose what they take from this.

* Target and Pickpocket roll against each other. Target gets a compounding +20 bonus on any item after the first that the Pickpocket tries to take (subject to adjustment)
* Success means the pickpocket gets the item, no issue.
* FAIL means the pickpocket gets NONE of their targets items, are removed from stealth, and the Pickpocket and target are set hostile to one another with the Target being alerted to the actions.

When the Timing bar is up, Only THEN will items be taken from the Targets actual inventory and deposited into the pickpockets.

Pickpockets can only target a PC once a reset.

Taking the GOLD item from a target will give the pickpocket 2-8% of the targets gold. (Still subject to the rolls mentioned above). The GOLD item... is currently a fish. Will be changed soon, but you'll know it when you see it. Report any feedback, as always friends.

Pickpocket is also disabled from NPCs.

There seems to be some movement and gatherings in each district ...

The University held an open day today, a number of new apprentices where welcomed to study fulltime and more students have registered to learn the Arcane Arts at this well known place of study in the region.

A small party was held at the West Netheril Trade Company, as fulltime merchants have been added to the company. Drinks were had and contracts signed ... talk of trade and information where topics of conversation.

A group of gang members had been seen moving around the Slums District. Some say they had been new intakes into the gang after being tested. Other say it was a gang war over turf. Either way the Slums is a dangerous place to be seen unless you known the locals.

Netherese Library / Re: Letter to the Library - Longblade Mastery

We have many tomes on longblade fighting styles but the best way is from the source. If I remember correctly a report stated that a traveller found a Master of the Blade in a cave near a Monastery close to the Ruins of the Necropolis.

I will warn you the path to this location can be dangerous from the report. I wish you well.

So the Team has decided to make things simple, for player application re access to a DM factions, a Subrace or Special application we are asking that you submit ModMail request. This way the team can ask questions to you directly and we can track it better.

On Netheril Age of Discovery Launch as a team we have decided to limit applications for the first 2 to 3 months so that players and DMs can get accustomed with the new world.

That is not to say you wonít have a selection of subraces available on launch. These are classed as non application and the list is below:

Lizard Folk

Please note: Mostly the two humanoid subraces should only have minor differences to their appearance.
Tieflings: Tails or horns and skin colors that suit the character
Aasimars: Glowing eyes, and skin colors that suit the character

Any other cosmetics (Wings, tail and horn combinations, abnormal sizes) will require an application.

All base NwN classes are open as normal.
The current information is on our wiki page https://netheril.net/w/index.php/Main_Page
Thank you all again
Netheril DM Team

Those travelling near the path to the Twisted Caves and Fang Peak will notice some activity from possible earthquakes in the area. The local Rengarth plainsmen say that the Gods are awakening ...

Those that sit and listen to the local Rengarth plainsmen around a campfire, are told of a story of a lost army. The story varies from campfire to campfire but one thing is clear in the stories told, they all speak of the strength of the army and the fact that the leader of the army was mislead.

Farmers of Conch are heard complaining to whomever will listen, about the increase in crows attacking there farms and taking their crops. Some say it is the circle of nature and these crows will die out when the foods is gone but this also means the town will suffer in a loss of food supply. Others say their is someone or something behind it but do not know who or why someone would do this.
