    Hey Magic Child, make sure you are updated to the latest game version in NWN: EE! It sounds like you are missing the new tilesets they added in one of their 2020 patches.

    Didn’t know if it was because I was using a historic login but I seem to get an auto crash as soon as I try and leave the ship

Following the passing of his beloved grandfather, Kellendill…. Now the Family’s Velahra’Tura (elven for “Weaponsmaster”), penned a traditional piece of poetry in his Grandfather’s honor:

Weilding his blood sword,
A hero who fights with pride,
And slays with honor.
He is a brave soul,
Drawing blood only for peace,
Never for vengeance.
Even if he falls,
In the midst of battle,
His name will stay on.

He penned it on the background of a painting of traditional Cherry Blossums, the Fehrien Family flower.

Ohtar Ma’aweriya
“Warrior Philosophy”


The Fehrien’s of Greenvale are a storied noble family with rich warrior traditions.

Volumes of their history exists in the Tel’Quessir Valorah… the Elven History of Thain.

But you cannot put a blade in any Elf’s hand and call him “warrior”.

Warrior is a term the Fehriens reserve for someone special. Someone Trained. Someone educated….cultured…elite.

Ohtar… is the elven word for Warrior.

Ar'ohtar is the Fehrein word for warrior… “noble warrior”… but it goes beyond even that for us.

Our family’s systemic approach to training, fighting, and, even, thinking, is unique among the family houses of Greenvale, or anywhere else.

We hold ourselves to a standard based on 7 fundamental principles of behavior…. Our Ohtar Ma’aweriya:

• Integrity- Be acutely honest in your dealings with all people. Believe in justice. To the true warrior, all points of view are considered regarding honesty, justice, and integrity.
• Respect- True warriors have no reason to be cruel. They do not need to prove their strength. Warriors are courteous, even to their enemies. They are respected not only for their strength in battle, but also by their dealings with others.
• Heroic Courage- Hiding like a turtle in a shell is not living at all. A true warrior must have heroic courage. It is absolutely risky. It is living life completely, to its fullest.
• Honor- Warriors have only one judge of honor and character, and this is themselves. The decisions they make and how those decisions are carried out is a reflection of who they truly are.
• Compassion- Through intense training and hard work the true warrior becomes quick and strong. They are not as most people. They develop a power that must be used for good. They have compassion, and help their fellow elves at every opportunity.
• Honesty and Sincerity- When warriors say that they will perform an action, it is as good as done. Nothing will stop them from completing what they say they will do. It is not necessary for them to “give their word” or to “promise”.
• Duty and Loyalty- Warriors are responsible for everything that they have done and everything that they have said, and all of the consequences that follow. They are immensely loyal to all of those within their care.

Queen’s guard.

That sentiment seemed so simple.

Yet…..it was SO complicated.

Beyond normal duty…..Kellendill was bound to not only protect the Queen...but represent her interests on the Isle as a whole.

He was...intoxicated by the responsibility. Truly….it was his life’s work. He lived to see his Queen’s will carried out. This..was what he was MADE for.

He literally LIVED his life for this…. As did his father, and his father’s father… and many generations before.

Duty….was his calling.

Many of us… had our calling. The Tailor….called his son to sew. The blacksmith...called his daughter to hammer iron. The diplomat...called his son or daughter to negotiate.

The Fehriens…..called their children to fight. They would use their Family’s bladesong fighting system…in service to their liege lord. As had been done for hundreds of generations.

This was his calling and his duty. And he relished it.

Such was the way of life….for a Fehrien child.
