I've never actually participated in a previous NeverwinterCon (virtual gaming convention for NWN), and I'm considering posting a little adventure for anyone to join in.

Pros:
- it'd be a way to show off part of Aenea to potential players
- it'd be fun to do a little 2-3 hour adventure with other people
- it'd be something new to try

Cons:
- it'd require those joining to download the Aenea haks if they don't already play
- it's not something we've done here before
- what can be given out as swag for an online game that doesn't have actual merchandise?

What do the players of Aenea think of this?

I think it would be awesome, as far as advertising potential and just all around goodness potential, especially as a celebration of the basic game that we all enjoy! I don't know much about how the NwNCon thing works - I've heard about them, but never participated in one. I'd also be more likely to participate in something like that if I knew some of the people that were going to be there. So what would all be involved with it? Character limits, guidelines, etc.? Would we use existing PCs, or make new ones specifically for these events?

My vote is essentially yes, though it may hinge on a few factors...

I was thinking a little one-shot adventure with all-new characters. The PCs would play the role of a low level scouting party of orcs, sent out to gather intel on enemies of the empire. Razz

Great idea. As far as swag, how about:

A bag of holding, to hold it all.
A couple of tomes plus 2, sweet without being unbalancing
Boots of stgriding and springing
Potions of Asis critical heal

Any other items people can think of specific to Aenea that would get peoples attention because YOU CAN"T GET EM ANYWHERE ELSE!

swag:

depending on how long the adventure is: the first chest for playing they get either the XP voucher or pick from the chest.

Maybe a soul gem so they can see the bonus you get from them.

A hat of disguise can be used as a plot device in some way. Very Aenean specific and fun to utilize in an RP environment.

I wish my Nwn drive didn't fry up the other day. I'm sad Sad

A party of orcs, you say? Hmm, why the twist (away from the more traditional "good guys looking out for bad guys" scenario)?

Alundaio, that's a bummer! My laptop died a few months ago, and with it went my mobile NwN fix! Still had a box in the basement, tho! Hope to see you online sometime soon!

PCs usually don't get to see things from the perspective of the typical bad guys...and who knows what orcs might do?

For those participating, all would be new characters, rather than existing ones.

I'll put a post up on the nwcon site soon. Then people just show up in the game at the right time. I'll post more info once I post a time/date.

I went ahead and posted two play time "slots", one on Sep. 10th and another for the next day (for those that couldn't make the 1st session). It'll be the same adventure both times.

New thread for this, where I'll be posting information as I get my ideas written down.

If you could manage to choreograph it, you could run the adventure just for new players, but have some of the older Aenea characters drop in for Cameos as NPC's. That would be especially cool if they had obvious traits or appearances unique to Aenea as a way of introducing some things that only upper level chars can do... like someone operating a portal, or having an wizard teleport the party somewhere, or a MoM summon a purple worm as part of the quest, etc...

That's a great idea. Seeing how the players are suppose to be the "bad guys" It would be funny to see some frequent Aenean fellows foil their plans a few times. Nothing too hostile but something along the lines of a joke, Like Crideas turning everyone into chickens or something funny like that. Maybe pretend he has Forceful Push and the DM teleports all the orc players to some place.

There's always extra cells in The Kraken to stuff them ugly orc prisoners into. Haha but that might be too mean.

Or we could be bad guys and warn the players about certain Aeneans that they should run away from.

"We goin' dis way, but watch out. We lost a lot o' big'uns out here. If'n you hear any mention of summin called 'butlerines', run away."

Even the Aenean epic PCs cant be everywhere at once. Perhaps it would make sense for the usual PCs to be distracted by something urgent, like another 'Veleron Incident' ™?
