Yeah - both of those are just byproducts of my old-man eyes not seeing well from the toolset and thinking there was a path down from those ledges that there turned out to not be. There's also a bug with a pitfall in one part of the dungeon Blue told me about that is a similar "Stuck" point. I got one fixed last night, but never heard of or saw the second one until now. I'll get it fixed when I get home tonight!
Forgiver, my dude. Falling into the gap on the way TO the dungeon is AWFUL. One good change today, not requiring a jump or a portal to even enter the zone, A+. But now if you fall (even if roped, because it doesn't actually work), you get stuck in an area you can't leave without a jump or portal.
Working telescopes (atm): old Celestron C8 SCT I purchased back in 1979, new Celestron OmniXLT 150 6" f/5 Newtonian, cheapo Meade 90mm f/8.8 refractor sniped off of eBay for $30 (these three I use on a Celestron AVX mount). Also a homebuilt 10" Dobsonian put together in 2010 and a homebuilt 6" Newtonian I made in H.S. c. 1966. Main imaging camera (atm) is a Canon 60D DSLR. The new camera is the SVBony SV305 Pro - plan to use it as a guide camera and for moon/planetary imaging.
They receive the DC benefit from items, but not from spell foci, since alchemist gas clouds are not spells. They also don't receive the bonus from the wild magic robe specifically since gas clouds can't wild magic.
Exploiting is taking advantage of something involving the game mechanics to gain something, be it XP, loot, or whatever, that you wouldn't normally be able to get.
Some examples of exploiting (this is not an exhaustive list, just some instances):
Finding that a quest is repeatable for its quest reward and repeating it (None of Thain's scripted quests should be repeatable except the quests for, special potions and item re-charging).
Taking advantage of poorly implemented NWN mechanics such as monsters that don't fight back when attacked to gain easy XP from killing monsters.
If you find an exploit, please report it to a DM ASAP, preferably in a PM, so that it can be fixed. DO NOT EXPLOIT IT YOURSELF under any circumstances.
If you are caught exploiting by a DM, anything gained from the exploiting will be removed. If you are found repeatedly and knowingly exploiting, despite having been told not to, you will receive a ban from Thain, as exploiting the server to cheat other players is about as disrespectful as it gets.
'Muling' means transferring items or gold gained by one of your characters to another one of yours, either by putting them on the ground and switching to the other char, or by letting another PC or NPC merchant hold them for you.
It is not allowed on Thain, as it confers an unfair advantage to starting characters of older players to those of fresh ones. Making up a role-playing story to explain an item transfer does not make it allowed. If you think you have an important reason for an item transfer, ask a DM about it.
And remember while in-character gifts are permissible between characters of different players, please keep them level appropriate.
