Any chance we could get a few of these pictured heads (2 on the right) from this pack as a standalone addition for elf males?
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2149011509

Or atleast replace some of the broken ones like the 4th one?



Especially considering, to my knowledge the head cap has been removed since the most recent patch? A few more elf and dwarf heads where current variety is lacking or could be great, likewise for the human heads now uncapped status.
Active PCs:
Azravael Hazeraxx - Drow Fighter

Two thoughts for possible inclusion, for the benefit of all the beautiful people in PoTM:

(1)
add the "skill muse" feat:
Prerequisites: Cha 13, 1st level only.
Benefit: You use your Charisma modifier in place of your Intelligence modifier to determine skill points gained at each level. For example, if your skill points gained at each level, before, had been (4 + Int), it instead turns to (4 + Cha).
Special: This feat can only be taken at first level.

(2)
For the regular muse feat, have the crafting bonus be one-half the character's CHA modifier, rounded up.

The Barbarian removed most of his works from the internet (this one is still up by virtue of being placed by a third party), and therefore I would presume the reason they have not been added is that affirmative consent for their inclusion could not be gained.

The server already uses several heads from this pack.
To clarify it'd be to essentially add the rest to male elves who have broken heads and little variety compared to others.

Athasian Dwarves currently have three head models for use. One of the DM locked head models for dwarves (105) is directly modeled after a Dark Sun dwarf picture from the 2E art, could it be added to their selection?

In Barovia, Mt. Ghakis Mines, Deep Shaft - it's a very cool environment.  Currently it looks like miners have been slain in the deep shafts. But the area is totally empty of creatures, and almost completely empty of herbs or anything else useful. Could we have a few beasties added to this cool environment? This adds some incentive to visit Krofberg!

(1). The Krofberg herbalist is a male, but when initially clicking on he speaks with a female voice.

(2). Krofberg would be an interesting alternate site for Calibans to congregate, due to the large number of Caliban miners in the outskirts of Krofberg. The merchants in that outskirt area do sell to Calibans. It would be helpful if the smith sells a few weapons besides a dagger. It would also be helpful if the Herbalist is willing to deal with Calibans (but he is not willing to). It would also be helpful if there was a path through the woods that takes one around Krofberg to the vineyards, since those vineyards are some of the only areas near Krofberg and they house the Herbalist, herbs, and wolves. This would help Krofberg be a place some starting characters may want to congregate in.

Can we get rentals in the Black Market in Port-O-Lucien?

They worked amazing in the Drain, created a lot of RP, it seems only fair that the Port underbelly would have some recluse

We replaced that head since it was poorly done, and the replacement should already be available in-game to male Athasian dwarves (105). Let me know if it's not available.

(2). Krofberg would be an interesting alternate site for Calibans to congregate, due to the large number of Caliban miners in the outskirts of Krofberg.

I'll fix the herbalist bug. For now we won't expand Krofburg though, but maybe at a later point.

Would it be possible to move the Contraband hand off for the Drain, in Krofburg, from the Miners Merriment to the Caliban bar?  It would make more sense to begin with, and I have been in a handful of scenes now to which it has become a constant disruption.

Can we have a crafting dummy in the Vallaki Crafting Hall? It's too bad we can't shape the weapons and things the way we like without buying a room at the inn or going all the way to the dwarven stronghold.

You can modify weapons and armor at any point in time at any location already.

How does that work? I think I've seen people do that, I always assumed they had a special item or something. But why wouldn't the crafting hall have it anyways? The dwarves have two next to their smelters and there's more in the market in Port. It feels weird not to have them available in the starting town, especially for people who don't know the special commands.

Hello Critter,

The server has crafting dummies located in various places, and for Vallaki, you can find one at "Barovia - Vallaki - Upper Town - Residential District - Kathryn's Fashion." Additionally, you have the capability to modify your armor, weapons, and other items without the need of a crafting dummy. To do this, you simply need to press 'rest,' followed by 'craft,' and then select the specific equipment you want to adjust. If you encounter any difficulties or have further questions, please feel free to send me a private message directly. I'm here to help! :)

How plausible is it to have an active slot wand that soaks a cantrip and then fires it like a crossbow? I don't know the coding of NWN so I don't know if this is something you can even do.
Make a canvas in your brain with me a second.

Your good woodworking buddy has just finished a bundle of shadow wood wands. Their DC was tough, but after some arduous carving he comes to you now with a whole 3 in total. Maybe you can bother the gilder later, see if they can fit them with some gold caps to assist their accuracy..
The wizard that you are, taking these empty wands, you decide to charge them with a cantrip cast of Acid Splash. Forever changed and now pulsing with a rhythmic green hum, the wand will fire a few 10 or so charges of Acid Splash before eventually crumbling to dust.
In the meantime, they make a terrific addition as a primary in your main hand! Never has it been easier to fire off cantrips than with the help of these new handy dandy wands.

That would require a custom item script which we seldom do. It's not impossible, but time consuming and we prefer to devote our time on other issues. Where it comes to items, we only accept suggestions of those readily doable within the toolset.

You can create a custom item property that replaces a script-per-item with a generalized script.  It is some heavy lifting coding wise to do however.
