    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.

    Fun!

    After years of saying I wanted to get a telescope my wife made the "mistake" of buying me a 102 f/12.7 Orion Maksutov-Cassegrain. Love it for planetary and brighter deep-sky viewing so far.

    Of course that just made the bug worse and want to get a larger scope for viewing fainter objects.

    So I am curious what other use.

    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.

    What telescopes do you have? And camera?

    I'll likely miss Section Six tonight. Got a new camera for my telescopes and it looks like the sky will be clear. So, I'll be outside doing astrophotography stuff.

    Oh! I will be IG as Tarok tonight instead of Sol!

    Section Six will take place at 7pm CDT (-5GMT) tonight, which is an hour later than last week.

    We will meet in the Iron Minogon. Good(ish) type characters of level SEVEN or below ! Just assume your character got a mysterious letter inviting them there !

    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.

    Are alchemists' clouds affected by spell focus/GSF or items/enchants that increase spell save DCs?

I saw that NWN:EE on the App Store was only $1.99, so I scooped it up for my iPhone 12 mini. “But dontyouknow, that screen’s pretty small for NWN!” Thank you, hypothetical response, and you’re right. I don’t think the small screen size is an insurmountable obstacle though, but it’s part of the bigger challenge so far:

“Doing things differently”

After 14 years of doing things one way, change is challenging. Here’re some observations so far.

I could almost feel my pinky reaching for the “p” key to see who was playing at a given moment!

Store inventory screens block and close the chat window, which makes a conversation while shopping at Trusty’s impossible on my small screen. I’ll have to devote my attention to doing one or the other on this platform.

I’m not the fastest texter, especially compared to my typing speed, so this makes RP more challenging for me. It’ll help my texting speed with practice, I’d imagine.

The top speaker on my phone obscures a small portion of the chat window. I can scroll the window manually to see what’s there, though.

Getting into the “headspace” for RP will take some adjustment. I’ve never RP’d Teron while lying on the floor playing lullaby music for a kid who doesn’t want to go to bed, for example.

The game looks great on the screen and runs smoothly. Custom portraits aren’t there, of course. Also Teron’s sword looks different, so it seems a few other custom things aren’t there.

I’ll try combat a bit later to see how that plays out. Anybody else try out this version yet?
