Do any of our tech wizards know if NWN can be used on a new fanglet tablet?

Which one specifically?
Moral wounds have this peculiarity - they may be hidden, but they never close; always painful, always ready to bleed when touched, they remain fresh and open in the heart.

That runs Linux, I assume, so theoretically you could try installing the linux version of NWN on it; but I'm not 100% sure it'd work. Still - worth trying!

Sorry, I stand corrected, it's a Samsung note 10.1, so it runs Android.

I really doubt it. Even if you could somehow get it installed, there's no way it would work properly with a touchscreen.

Oh wow... I never thought about this!  Probably for the best that it's (probably) unfeasible, since I can pretty much promise I'd never get anything done again ever...

Hey, it's been known to happen!

Sometimes.

I believe with any tablet you can just access your computer back home remotely. I have actually logged onto PotM this way before, but its not feasible for the action side of things, just roleplay scenes that dont require as much.
