Welcome to Last Light!

Post by Vantablack » Sun Feb 24, 2019 6:22 am

Welcome, friend. It seems that your journey has been quite long and arduous. It pleases me that your path has lead you here, to our humble corner of the multiverse. I will be your guide, lighting your way and helping you get acquainted with this realm.

Starting Notes

The first thing you should do is become familiar with the following things:
  1. The Setting
  2. The World Map
  3. The Rules
We also recommend that you read any additional server information that might be available.

If you're trying to build a character, the Quick Region Guide can help you find an origin.
This thread will teach you what happens when you die.

An Overview of the Server

Last Light is hosted on the Sinfar framework, which means increased capabilities, more customization, real-time development of the world, complete freedom when building a player home, and many other fantastic things. While we are utilizing the framework, we really are nothing like Sinfar. Let me cover the differences.

First of all, we are a Roleplay server, not a Social server. This means you are here under the pretenses that you are roleplaying, not simply socializing. Actions have meaning, and it is generally expected that you remain in character as much as possible.

We are, however, an 18+ server, similar to Sinfar. We are not, by any means, an "erotic roleplay" centric server, that is NOT our goal. What we mean by 18+ is that we ALLOW Mature elements to exist in roleplay.

The Lights system does not exist. The Lights system is a tool used by Social servers to let players somewhat pick and choose the types of interactions they have with other characters. This makes diversification almost impossible, and thus discourages roleplay. You may have your own personal preferences, and that's fine, but if you have any particular concerns, you should work through it on a case by case basis with your peers.

We use Sinfar haks, because the haks that Sinfar uses have a ton of great options, not just n00ds. Concerning mostly those whom are used to the Sinfar framework: we have restricted some of the appearance options on the models, you may notice this when you are flipping through pelvis and chest appearances for example. This is to help maintain a bit more focus on our roleplay-centric values. If for whatever you reason you have a special request, you can reach out to our DM staff at any time and we will see what we can do to assist you.

Getting Set Up

You will need the Haks. Additionally, you need to make sure you have your Neverwinter Nights installation set up correctly. Sinfar.net has made an excellent guide for getting everything in place. Click the link for the version of Neverwinter Nights you're using:

Neverwinter Nights: Diamond Edition
Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition

How to Play

Connecting is quite simple. See this guide. The guide will tell you to connect to nwn.sinfar.net:5121, but this is not the IP For Last Light. The IP You are going to enter in place of the Direct Connect box is: nwn.sinfar.net:5125.

You can then go on to creating your character. Don't spend a lot of time on the Character Creation process, because most things can be changed after you get in game. You will need to make sure that your Level 1 Class and Attributes are what you want to start with, though.

Welcome aboard!
