Deity Favored Weapon in NWN1

Postby dergon darkhelm » Wed Jun 21, 2017 3:30 pm

How does it work? If at all?

Was proficiency with deity's favored weapon part of the 3.0 ruleset? Was it ever in ALFA in the NWN1 days.



Because ....

Think it only came with the War domain, but I could be mistaken.
Talk less. Listen more.

Current PCs: ?

Well, this was bound to crop up eventually, wasn't it ;).

"Official" NWN 1 ALFA never implemented weapon proficiencies for the war domain.

However, since ayergo's Waterdeep is basically not subject to ALFA's ruleset at this point but his private hobby project, albeit based on ALFA resources, you should probably talk to him whether he wants to implement some sort of exception / policy (or not). For fairness' sake, I should probably point out that current IA and PA (and all admin, really) might be apt to look at things differently where community rules of conduct are concerned - i.e. if somebody thinks harassment or what not is okay "there", they might still face repercussions "here".

Or to put that in more friendly terms: Ayergo has, as far as I am aware, the Admins' full support for offering game using old ALFA resources under the ALFA umbrella, and we strongly encourage members not to cause him headaches but be respectful of the fun environment he offers.

Now, back on topic, while I think war mattocks equally cool (used one myself in TOR, hah), I'd probably advise him to keep things simple and manageable.

Cheers,

I'm fine with a big hammer that I can pretend is a mattock. :)

Ramirez is a wizard, and spent his level 3 feat on exotic weapon so he could use bastard sword (Kelemvor's divine weapon). Interesting things to come! :)

Thanks Veilan!

I of course want to remain within the bounds of all established ALFA rules and such and appreciate the feedback. Let me try and figure out what is in place in the game currently before trying to implement anything else.
Since I was a child I've always loved a good story. I believed that stories help us enable ourselves to fix what is broken in us and help us become the people we dreamed of being.
Lies that told a deeper truth.
So I began to compose a new story for them and the choices they will make and the people they will decide to become. And we'll have all the things that you enjoy. Surprises and violence

Addendum: I do not think NWN 1 (or ALFA for that matter) even had the war domain?

We also had a "conversion" list for what NWN 1 weapons would count as which favoured deity weapon for roleplay purposes or something?

I should probably dig into that...

Don't worry about it too much ....

It's low priority.

I might just take a level of fighter and do weapon focus warhammer and RP that it's a mattock or something
