OK, after installing the downloads to play here, I logged onto a different server and created a new character. I noticed a few spells available that I hadn't seen before. I picked one without worrying. Then, when I tried to log on with that character, I wasn't allowed to because my character was invalid. The message said I had invalid spells selected. What's the deal? Did one of the haks or something else from this site affect my ability to play on other servers? What do I need to remove?

Hi Cygnus and welcome to Aenea.

I'm not exactly sure if I followed your description, but in general you will not be able to save an Aenean PC to your local vault and use it elsewhere.

Aenea is filled with custom content which is what makes it such a rich experience, but it does restrict the PCs to existing only in Aenea.

Keep in mind that Aenea is its own campaign setting separate from Forgotten Realms or Greyhawk, so it makes sense from an RP perspective as well.

In general, adding custom content to your client's install should not interfere with your ability to play elsewhere, some PWs do a better job of this than others.

I've not encountered any issues with the Aenea content causing compatibility issues *and* the other worlds become improved from all of the Aenean client-side improvements!

Sorry for not being more clear. I did not save a character to a local vault. What happened was that I was creating a new character on another server. During the spell selection phase of character creation I saw some new spells and selected one. Then got the error message trying to log on.

I see, if I experienced the same I would be nearly 100% certain that it is unrelated to anything to do with Aenea and discuss the issue with that PW.

I wouldn't be so certain. I just created a caster on Aenea and the same new spells were available ( I think one was called "scorching beam" or something like that, another one is "brilliant gaze"). I noticed in the description of these spells they are shown as sorc spells (not wiz) But this time, I didn't get an error when logging in. But, the two new spells that I had selected were not in my spellbook when I arrived at the inn. But, there was a spell in my book that I had not selected (shock weapon).

Perhaps you have a "spells.2da" file in your override folder that is giving extra spells during character creation, maybe from playing another PW. Aenea has it's own 2da files in the haks, which are loaded after you connect to the server (so they, and all the Aenea custom spells, aren't available during character creation).

Aenea doesn't have a "scorching beam" spell or a "brilliant gaze" spell. Sounds like something from another server.

Thank you, yes there was in fact a spells.2da file in my override folder which I have now deleted. I have no idea how it got there. I double checked all the Aenea related stuff I downloaded and put in my override folder and it wasn't hiding in there. I also checked NWNCQ, which is the last thing I loaded into my override folder but nothing there either. The only thing I could think of is, I did try out "City of Arabel" a couple months ago. It has one of those update automatic downloaders that you run to play there. I can only think that is the culprit.

Sorry for accusing the Aenea downloads. I guess I haven't created a caster anywhere in a long time so I was just assuming the Aenea files did it since I just loaded them a few days ago.

Don't worry about it, in truth of fact there is enough complexity in Aenea, that bugs are not implausible. The Amethyst Dragon does a great job squashing them.
