I don't see party invites.

To solve this, find your NWN2 Home Directory, and locate nwn2player.ini. Change DisablePartyInvitePopup to 0.

Why can't I play a Warlock?

Warlocks have been deemed critically broken in a way that we cannot entirely fix. Until we find a way to correctly balance them for both ALFA's persistent world and towards canon, we do not allow new Warlocks to be created.

I rolled a Cleric, why are my domain powers different?

ALFA heavily canonized its Domains. You can head to the class or domain page for an accurate list of what is given.

How do I send messages to other players?

Private messages, called tells in Neverwinter Nights 2, can be sent a variety of ways. First, you can click on the eye icon, and open the Player Chat UI. Clicking on a name will set the right text on your chat bar. You can manually type this yourself. For instance, /t "Character Name" Hello! will send a message of "Hello!" to a character with the name of "Character Name". To send a message to a player, type /tp "TheAwesomePlayer" Hello!. Finally, you can right click on the green text from a message sent to you, and select the /t [...] option that shows up.

Where can I find NPCs, merchants, and quests?

This can vary heavily from server to server. Ask around, or check out the individual Server articles for more information.

How do I roll my skills?

See also: Chat Commands

You may roll a skill check at any time by typing #skillname. Only the first few letters of the skill are important. For instance, you can type #hide to make a hide check. Special commands #stealth (rolls both Hide and Move Silently) and #track (rolls Survival, capped at 10 if you do not have the tracking feat) are available.

Skills can also be rolled via PC Tools.

How do I check the date or time?

Check out PC Tools -- that will let you do that and more.

How do I save my character?

Take a look at PC Tools to save your character at any time. Otherwise, simply logging out will save your character too.

How do I destroy items?

Mundane, junk items may be destroyed using the campfire from PC Tools. Simply place the items into the campfire, select Remove from under the Miscellaneous section, and target the campfire.

How do I rename items?

Locate the DMFI Tool in your character's inventory. Right click it, select Activate Item and target the item you wish to rename.

I logged in to a strange area, and can't play.

You have been Quarantined. This is typically because you are logging onto another server without legitimately traveling. You will be restricted until a DM de-quarantines you, or you log into your normal server.
