can you use the Vampire subrace system as a guild to create a Vampire template for the PRC which can be added to your character at lvl 1 or/and as a class like the lich so as you gain lvl you unlock new ablilties

Thanks

Can you post a detailed guild how to create a template and i will try to create it myself and send it to you.

First, I think it's great there is a team working again. Such dedication!

Second, I'd like to second the vampire idea. I've been seeing that request at least as long as I've been aware of the PRC (about the same time the third NWN I expansion came out, I think). At least some of the features are already coded, because they'd be the same as templates like necropolitan.

Maybe this is more of a bug report than a feature request, but some of the knight of the chalice feats don't work correctly. KOC is supposed to get fear immunity, which broadens to a field and then becomes immunity to enchantment (basically, mind-affecting spells). What happens instead is that KOC short-circuits the immunity a paladin already has to fear, then eventually substitutes its own, which only covers fear and never gets to enchantment.

I'm also seeing weird effects I'm not sure are PRC; they might just be bioware bugs, but I don't remember seeing them before. Some spells, like storm of vengeance, seem to work on characters even if they have immunity to 9th level spells. Cloudkill still reduces constitution in the same situation.

Thanks for the reply i am glad to see that the PRC pack is still alive.
I notice with the new 1.71 patch that you can pick any of the PRC classes from lvl 1 with the normal creator, is there a workaround for the races as well besides the convo creator or is that impossible.

My main criticism would be that there seemed to be a focus on being completely authentic to original D&D texts, to the point of confusion. My example would be Hellfire Warlock's prerequisites:

Quote
Entry Requirements

Skills: Intimidate 6 ranks, Knowledge (the planes) 12 ranks, Spellcraft 6 ranks.

Language: Infernal.

I had to find the prerequisite 2da to make sure that "Knowledge (the planes)" meant Lore, and had to dig through prereq scripts to find that "Language: Infernal" meant that you needed to be able to cast Hellrime Blast or Brimstone Blast.

Just my two cents! Everything else I can think of is subjective; for example, I have made a few abilities free action to give NWN a more action-ey feel, but that is definitely my own twist on things and not something I'd ask the entire PRC to follow suit on.

First of all, it is sooo good to know that you are still there, guys!

Talking about new features, i would like to know, is it possible to implement Persistent spell (and its divine metamagic part)? I really do like playing a hit-'em-hard cleric, but there is just no way to do it right without this here lovely feat.

Perhaps a better implementation of a no-party-size-penalty-to-xp workaround could be amazing too. I've tried to do many things suggested somewhere on this forum, but it didn't work out well.

And, maybe, a Bone Knight PrC? (That one from the Five Nations, p. 117)

Thank you guys, and good luck!
-------
Talking about templates, having a "Saint" template would be awesome. Yes, it is kinda overpowered, but a good one to have nonetheless.

        Zephyr dance: Changed visual effects to be more exciting. (tob_dw_zphdnc)


OTHER
    Racial spell like abilities now activate in a single round. (race_sla)
    Spell turning will no longer drain at approximately double speed. (Added additional argument to PRCGetSpellTargetObject, changed many ability scripts so that they wouldn't drain spell turning levels (such as smite evils)


Less obvious/behind-the-scenes changes:
    prc_inc_combat: Added a new mode flag (PRC_COMBATMODE_SKIP_MELEE_RANGE_CHECK) that causes the range check to be skipped for melee attacks, but not cleaves/circle kicks etc for obvious reasons. Used for whirling blade and ToB stuff - most of the scripts assumed the hit variable would be set immediately, but if the target backed away then the actual attack could be delayed causing the fancy on-hit effects to not apply.
        Whirling blade and all ToB strikes that have a condition on hit use this.
    prc_inc_combmove: Added a no knockdown argument for DoTrip. Setting sun throws were knocking enemies down before you could move them.
   Added new file prc_inc_events, included in inc_utils. Adds several new events (such as OnHealed, OnSave, OnSpellResistance...) which required changes in other scripts.


In an ideal world...
    The following would use AoE stuff (so need entries in vfx_persistant.2da)
        Crushing fist of spite
        Rain of embers

Somewhere I had a list of some TLK and 2da bugs that I didn't get round to fixing. If memory serves, the shadow sun disciple requires ranks in hide which aren't mentioned in the TLK strings. And the damage/healing touch ability can be spammed whilst paused to kill anything instantly.

Maybe this is more of a bug report than a feature request, but some of the knight of the chalice feats don't work correctly.

Thank you Calirion,
                              I truly appreciate any report of bugs, I will take note of the knight of chalice and the bugs you have reported, I will cake sure to see if we can find a way to make things work the way they should.

I will look into both storm of vengeance and cloudkill and immunity to 9th level spells, I personally don't use the immune to spell levels but I will see if I can figure a way to make this work properly .  :)

Thanks for the reply i am glad to see that the PRC pack is still alive.
I notice with the new 1.71 patch that you can pick any of the PRC classes from lvl 1 with the normal creator, is there a workaround for the races as well besides the convo creator or is that impossible.

I believe the 1.71 patch is somthing created by the communiyt member shaddow ( or is it shadoow?) , I will try and touch bases with him to see if we could possiably use his work to improve the PRC.  :)

I would love to see this added, I will try and contact Atalsen and see if anything was ever created, and if not I will see what I can do.

Thank you for pointing this out, one of the things I want to do is make the PRC less confusing. I may need to find a way to update the Manual. :)

First of all, it is sooo good to know that you are still there, guys!

Talking about new features, i would like to know, is it possible to implement Persistent spell (and its divine metamagic part)? I really do like playing a hit-'em-hard cleric, but there is just no way to do it right without this here lovely feat.

Perhaps a better implementation of a no-party-size-penalty-to-xp workaround could be amazing too. I've tried to do many things suggested somewhere on this forum, but it didn't work out well.

And, maybe, a Bone Knight PrC? (That one from the Five Nations, p. 117)

Thank you guys, and good luck!

Talking about templates, having a "Saint" template would be awesome. Yes, it is kinda overpowered, but a good one to have nonetheless.

Thank you for all the suggestions, I will take note of each one and pass it along to the team. :)

OTHER
    Racial spell like abilities now activate in a single round. (race_sla)
    Spell turning will no longer drain at approximately double speed. (Added additional argument to PRCGetSpellTargetObject, changed many ability scripts so that they wouldn't drain spell turning levels (such as smite evils)


Less obvious/behind-the-scenes changes:
    prc_inc_combat: Added a new mode flag (PRC_COMBATMODE_SKIP_MELEE_RANGE_CHECK) that causes the range check to be skipped for melee attacks, but not cleaves/circle kicks etc for obvious reasons. Used for whirling blade and ToB stuff - most of the scripts assumed the hit variable would be set immediately, but if the target backed away then the actual attack could be delayed causing the fancy on-hit effects to not apply.
        Whirling blade and all ToB strikes that have a condition on hit use this.
    prc_inc_combmove: Added a no knockdown argument for DoTrip. Setting sun throws were knocking enemies down before you could move them.
   Added new file prc_inc_events, included in inc_utils. Adds several new events (such as OnHealed, OnSave, OnSpellResistance...) which required changes in other scripts.


In an ideal world...
    The following would use AoE stuff (so need entries in vfx_persistant.2da)
        Crushing fist of spite
        Rain of embers

Somewhere I had a list of some TLK and 2da bugs that I didn't get round to fixing. If memory serves, the shadow sun disciple requires ranks in hide which aren't mentioned in the TLK strings. And the damage/healing touch ability can be spammed whilst paused to kill anything instantly.

Thank you Loggy,
                            this is exactly the type of reports I need. nicely detailed, I'll copy this list and pass it along to the rest of the team. :)
