Hey everyone,

It's currently 2 AM PST as I type this, and I have some updates on the server.

Yesterday afternoon the server was targeted by someone who had managed to hack Jewwe's machine that runs the server (who knew hosting a NWN server made you such a choice target?). Fortunately, Squidget and I noticed something was amiss pretty much immediately and sent Jewwe approximately 10,000 messages in the span of about 20 minutes. Jewwe was able to disconnect the server from the internet before the hacker was able to do anything too crazy. The forums were unaffected by this, so no worries about passwords or anything like that- this just targeted the server itself.

Jewwe is in the process of restoring the server from a backup version, as well as updating security etc., etc. The latest update is that we expect the server to be live again sometime midday PST today, November 20, once everything has been revamped.

Because we are restoring from a backup, character files will be missing the last 15 or so hours of player progress. For most people, this will be a minor inconvenience, I suspect, but if there are any major issues beyond the loss of a bit of gp or xp, please let one of us know. Ivan, I already have your +10 Vorpal Axe of Holy Sword Permahaste ready to go wink .

Thanks for all your patience, and please send Jewwe internet hugs and/or cookies for waking up at 1:30 AM his time to our frantic messaging, and for getting things back up and running as quickly as possible!

Editing to add: If you notice anything amiss, it may be because the server is currently running an older version- don't panic! This will be cleared up shortly; you can continue to log in and play in the meantime.
