Greater Stoneskin

Post  Skaldic on Tue Jan 15, 2013 7:11 am

Question:

Anphillia Forums: Cleric domains wrote:
Earth
The Cleric casts modified Stoneskin spells:

Stoneskin: Grants 20/+6 Damage Reduction equal to 15 points per level up to 150.
Greater Stoneskin: Grants 30/+6 Damage Reduction equal to 22 points per level up to 225.

How can cleric cast Greater Stoneskin, if he doesn't have that spell in Spell book?
Is it supposed to be used from scroll only?

Yea. I thought of that or a Druid and even I thought of it as a complete nonsense so I didn't even write it here hehe.

Hmm, that sucks. Think it would be difficult to add it to spell book?

Thanks for the answer, by the way Wink

My initial idea was to add it as a Domain bonus spell for Earth Clerics.
But I guess I never got around to it, or most likely forgot about it since it's a really quick fix.

Or so I assumed, I don't think I've actually added something to the Domain spell 2DA file.
Looks like it would be straight forward.
I don't think all Clerics should have access to Greater Stoneskin.

Domains.2da (original code line 5)
Code:
6280          ID_EARTH        ****      ****      ****      172      369      ****      ****      ****      ****      314          0             

172 is Stoneskin, 369 is Energybuffer. The 314 value is the bonus feat you get, which is just the Earth Domain Power feat, which is just a placeholder since it's not a Castable Domain Power, indicated by the 0 at the end.
By adding 74 (Greater Stoneskin) in the sixth spellslot, we should have given Earth Domain Clerics the Greater Stoneskin spell.

Domains.2da (grater stoneskin as a lvl 6 spell code line 5)
Code:
6280          ID_EARTH        ****      ****      ****      172      369      74        ****      ****      ****      314          0             

Try this, if it works as everything else does in the NWN 2da scripts (which I see no reason it shouldn't) this will add Greater Stoneskins as a Level 6 spell for Clerics with Earth Domain.

I hope you consider this and don't give it to all Clerics.

EDIT: Obviously the Domains.2da would have to be added to the Overridebundle then. Most likely on both Server- and Player-side.

It works fine for me.

Have you got the domains.2da I sent you in your override folder?

ok I got it working. I will need to pick earth domain rather than load an already made cleric. I'll be updating the overrides now.

I know bickering about a balance and having nostalgic moments is important for you, but could you guys make it work?
So far, earth domain clerics feel like they took the domain for nothing. Wink

With a magic word Please, of course Smile

It's not a balance issue, it's just getting it working on the server.

I'm at a loss to explain why it doesn't work - as it works for me offline!
