+-----------------------------------------------------------------+

"The dark silhouette of the High Tower looms ahead, reaching upward
like the many jagged rocks and dead trees that surround the area.
For many years it has been home to you and it is within those walls
you were taught the arts of the arcane by Bakadah, your master. It
is on this night that your training comes to an end and your
acceptance into the Auren Society of Weavers is at hand.

The Auren draw their power from a weave that spans into the Land of
the Dead. It allows such members to grasp a better understanding of
the spirits that roam that realm and use it to their advantage. As
of late the weave has felt tainted, as if it has been soiled in
some way. Even your assistant Charles, who you summoned from the
Land of the Dead, complained of headaches and the like. The dead
should not do this.

It is this very taint that has awoken the Council of the High Tower
from their slumber in tombs they have remained within for
one-hunded and sixty years. On this night your first assignment
is to come from Bakadah, an assignment given directly to him by
the Council of the High Tower.

You have been chosen. Your time has come."


+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
--[5]-- C U R R E N C Y <---- :
+-----------------------------------------------------------------+

The currency in Almraiven are small colored gems of various sizes
known as Dinars. Their size, color and shape reflect a specific
value.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
--[6]-- C L O T H I N G <---- :
+-----------------------------------------------------------------+

Many folks you will come across during your exploration of
Almraiven will react to how you are dressed. Some many not care for
the cloth and stitch you wear, while others may only give you tasks
to do because of how you are dressed.

Below is a general list of particular types of clothing you can
wear and that will generate a reaction from the NPC you are
speaking with.

Street-side : -----------------------------------------------------

Typical for those who live on the street of the city. Wearing
street-side cloth and stitch can bring you many benefits as well as
information when you mingle with the poor. Some street-side you will
meet in the game will not ask you for dinars when it comes to
learning something and may also provide information that you may
otherwise never be able to learn.

Of course, the other side of the coin is that many folks in
Almraiven will simply ignore you or ask you to leave them alone. As
someone dressed as a street-side, you will also stink and look very
dirty.

Street-side cloth and stitch cannot be bought in a tailor shop.

Loomer and/or Enclaver : ------------------------------------------

Typically known as a Loomer or Enclaver, these remarks will come
from those folks you speak with that recognize cloth and stitch
worn by those from the Enclave Ward.

It is high quality cloth and stitch which does not come at a cheap
price. For this, many who are poor and notice a Loomer or Enclaver
may approach you asking for dinars or even keep information from
you until you pay the price.

The Enclave Ward is well known for its particular style in clothing
due to Mani, a tailor found on Loom Avenue.

Stinker, Ruby Warder : --------------------------------------------

If one is called a Stinker or Ruby Warder it's because they are
wearing cloth and stitch from a part of the Ruby Ward known for its
Werefolk population.

Reactions will tend to be very vocal and some folks simply will not
care to speak with you at all.

Weaver, Auren : ---------------------------------------------------

In Almraiven, the colors of the Auren are not well known. Only a
small number may notice the colors from the High Tower. Some will
speak to you about it or they may not care at all. There might be
those that warn you not to display the colors of a society that
does not reside in the city.

If by chance you happen to come across cloth and stitch from one of
the arcane societies in the city, reactions will tend to vary. Some
may not care, some may lie about who they are while others may ask
for your assistance. In rare cases, you may even be attacked.

Other : -----------------------------------------------------------

Cloth and stitch not mentioned above will not have any sort of
reaction but that also means you may or may not be missing out on
particular dialog options, side-quests and information.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
--[7]-- R E A G E N T S <---- :
+-----------------------------------------------------------------+

Reagents are very important in Almraiven as they are required to
mix and brew potions that will assist you during the adventure.
Some spells will also require reagents so the weave can be
complete and the energy of that weave released. Failure to have
a reagent for a particular spell will mean the spell simply will
not be cast.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
--[8]-- B U I L D S U G G E S T I O N S <---- :
+-----------------------------------------------------------------+

Male or female, doesn't matter.

Any race is now supported. Human, Half-Elf, Dwarf, Half-Orc and
Elf will receive an Auren Quarterstaff which offers special
abilities to the player. Halfling and Gnomes will receive the
same special abilities except on a pair of bracers as the latter
two mentioned races cannot equip a quarterstaff.

Wizard or Sorcerer only.

Do not waste your time on any skill that allows you to brew
a potion, make wands, weapons, armor, etc. Brewing Potions is
done via scripting at your Brewing Station within your laboratory.

An overall good character may not suit the style of adventure
although there are plenty of good aligned jobs and tasks you
will come across in the module. The reason I suggest not playing a
full blown good character is that you are required to mutilate the
dead during your adventure and command the undead.

You should at least take an offensive spell or two that you can
use to help you through some of the encounters you will come
across. Magic Missile and Burning Hands are an excellent choice
because they do not require reagents to cast.

Charm Person and Scare are also welcomed as they are used in many
conversations and can be used as an alternative to skill checks.

Skill checks are also made during conversations or descriptive
conversations that will appear from time to time. These include
Spot, Intimidate, Bluff, Persuade and Lore. You will not be
given choices based on these checks but rather, they are rolled
behind the scenes. If you are successful, the message,

"You use a skill. . ."

will appear above your PCs head, opening up new dialog options
or possibly giving you a better chance at a reward or information.
If you fail, the conversation simply continues but you are never
told if you failed. Just roll with the punches.

There are many merchants that sell a wide variety of weapons
as well as armor. Feel free to build your character as you see
fit. If you enjoy casting and using a bladed short sword, do so.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
--[9]-- E X P E R I E N C E <---- :
+-----------------------------------------------------------------+

You will receive experience during your adventure. Particular
points of interest that will earn you experience :

Combat
Avoiding Combat
Using a Skill
Brewing a Potion
Learning Something New
Receiving a Side Quest
Advancing the Investigation
Completing a Task
Solving a Puzzle
Surviving a Dangerous Task
Saving Someone
Reading a Book/Studying
Summoning a Labratory Assistant

Do take the time to explore and speak with NPCs. They will give
you side quests that can help you gain more experience and also
open up new regions of the city for you to marvel at.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------+
--[10]-- T H E D A T A B A S E <---- :
+-----------------------------------------------------------------+

Almraiven will create a campaign database in your NWN\Database
directory. These files should not be tampered with or deleted.
Information will be stored to the database during your adventure
behind the scenes.

When you've completed the module, your character will be exported
and particular events you encountered during the adventure will
be stored.

If you play the module for a second time, the database is cleaned,
allowing you to begin all over again.

You will be unable to play the second installment of your adventure
if you have not completed Almraiven. If you accidently delete the
Almraiven database, you will have to begin and complete the module
if you want to play the second installment.

[ MAJOR MODULE UPDATES ]

Last known major update : December 15, 2010 ::: DL# : 13,234

* Almraiven Hakpak updated!

* Patched module to 1.69.
* does not include changes to ambientmusic.2da

- Removed the scripted quill written by Leon (a.k.a. strannik). With
new SetName() functions now on every NPC, the Naming Quill is no
longer required.
[revised from September 15, 2006 update]

- Removed the only two alignment shifts in the game to be more
consistent with the rest of the module and the choices the player
makes.
[requested by Vetch and Alabore]

! Fixed The High Tower to make it match more toward what the Auren
Society of Weavers are.
* Cosmetic changes only.

+ Added miscsmall/thin for spell components to stack within
player's inventory. This should lower the amount of space and
reagent bags required for lugging around so many reagents to
cast spells and brew potions. Items now stack to 10 before
creating another inventory icon.
[requested by a number of players over the years]

+ Added changing Auren Society Robe description when player
levels letting player know what powers the runes are giving
when the robe is worn. Robe also changes description when
the robe is removed and the runes no longer are active.
[requested by CheeseshireCat]

+ Added changing Auren Society Staff or Bracers description
when player equips Quarterstaff/Bracers, letting the player
know what powers the runes are giving when used. Description
also changes when the Quarterstaff/Bracers is removed and
the runes no longer are active.
* Bracers are offered to Gnome/Hafling characters ONLY!
[requested by CheeseshireCat]

+ Added fix to alley windows not being illuminated.


-----
August 27, 2008

! Fixed Tale of the Ruby Red side-quest on Loom Avenue.
[reported by a number of players over the years]

! Fixed a bug with Lamu always respawning on Horseshoe Lane even
if already robbed by player.
[found while preparing for Shadewood release]

! Fixed a bug with chest in basement of Springwine Jones Estate
that would continue to give a journal entry.
[reported by Azarr Kul]

! Fixed an issue with Domon Bin not taking player if they happen
to be wearing an Evelyn Society of Thinkers robe. Captain of
the Blood Runner also does this, so Domon Bin was fixed to
allow player, otherwise if player spoke to both captains,
they had no way of getting to the Forest of Mir.
[reported by Silvius]

! Fixed an issue with Tin quest that would break if the player
spoke with NPC while not wearing street-side clothing even
though player met required NPC. By doing so, option to speak
and complete quest with the NPC became broken.
[reported by Paradoxical]

! Fixed an issue with potion brewing, which allowed player to
place in multiple reagents and brew potions. Problem was,
it would leave reagents behind, allowing the player to brew
more potions over and over again. A large experience sink
tank for doing nothing.
[found while preparing for Shadewood release]

-----
September 15, 2006

* Updated module to v1.68.

! Fixed color of Weather Worn Cloak given to player in the High
Tower.

! Fixed cloak colors on merchants.

! Fixed Arra's Home sequence bug that still could cause the
sequence to abort, trapping the player inside.

+ Added new SetName() function that allows player to customize
NPC names to their liking via a scripted quill written by
Leon (a.k.a. strannik). Custom NPC names are then remembered
when player returns to all areas.

+ Added new SetName() function to NPCs that crossed multiple
areas which the quill could not track, such as Gimyr, Arra,
any ship captain, or NPCs located in the street during the day
and a tavern/inn during the night.

+ Added Runner's End information to Luanu that forces the player
to learn of street. This is to ensure the player knows of
Runner's End and can advance the investigation. Some players
opted not to do any side quests that told them of Runner's End,
making the main plot come to a hault and forced the players
to take a side quest that lead them to Runner's End to advance
the plot even if they did not want any side quests.
2827 downloads when fix was issued.

August 6, 2006

! Fixed a bug on the cave door in Nightwatch Wharf. If player
closed the door, a script fired locking the door, keeping the

quest.

June 23, 2006

* Updated module at 6:24PM EST to fix a conversation bug on Bakadah
that surfaced when he checked to see if you picked up all the
books in the High Tower. Even if you had one, the conversation
would fire the next node and Bakadah would think you had all
three books. Script was fixed to now make sure all three books
are in the inventory of the player.
779 downloads when fix was issued.
23/06/2006 @ 6:24PM
[reported by spacerat]

+ Added Halfling and Gnome availability to the module. Although a
player could create such a character and play Almraiven, they
would not be able to use the Auren Quarterstaff and gain the
special abilities that came with it. Now any Halfling or Gnome
receives a pair of bracers with the same abilities.
[requested by Steve Savicki]

-----
June 15, 2006

* Updated module at 10:30PM EST to fix major bug with Flaux if

added descriptions to all doors that did not have any.

the instructions given by Flaux.

appear even if player did not memorize them. This will also fix
the Scare bug on the guards by Springwine Jones Estate.
[reported by sepman1]

consistancy between both modules. Now when player levels up,
script will auto fire instead of previous versions of Almraiven
that required player to unequip and equip robe to gain the
new level bonus.

+ Added some variables to store to Database file. Nothing major
that will ruin the experience of previously played versions
of Almraiven.

! Fixed "man" on Domon Bin to as player would be

Childhood Memories quest, player would not have the option to
return those items.
2827 downloads when fix was issued.
[reported by taltamir and ElodieMoulin]

to the player AFTER the character was exported, not before.
2827 downloads when fix was issued.
[reported by Riona]

Werefolk have already taken her to the sewers below.
2827 downloads when fixed was issued.
[reported by ElodieMoulin]

! Fixed Lilac Loft password and returned option to enter the
building via a conversation and not a listening pattern.
Too many players reported problems getting inside the building
using the listening pattern option. Now password appears in a
conversation if player happens to learn it along the way.

! Tweaked Nyla variable for Venom Within book and conversation
checks. Players reported not being able to ask Luanu or Flaux

and not on player.

! Fixed a bug that caused Luanu to respawn multiple times if
player saved a game in her home, then reloaded.


August 13, 2006

at The Shed. Option would only be available if the player DID
NOT have the Scare spell memorized.

Asavir was checked. Double checked variables for allowing player
entry; modified one.
[reported by ElodieMoulin and amethyst347]

in Springwine Jones Estate. Alarm would go off if player entered
the last room on the main floor, regardless of what player was
wearing.
[reported by ElodieMoulin]

! Fixed a bug with Falis spawning multiple times at the Harbor Gate
if he was a companion of the player but the player left to do
other things in the city. When the player returned, a duplicate of
Falis was spawned. Could be repeated for multiple versions of
Falis.
[reported by ElodieMoulin]


August 1, 2006

! Fixed spelling issues that popped up during play.
[reported by Tiberius209]


July 22, 2006

! Fixed an experience loop bug that popped up on Bakadah in the
High Tower that allowed the player to continue to receive 25xp.
[reported by QSW]


June 25, 2006

! Fixed a bug that surfaced on Snake Bite quest. If a player spoke
with Luanu, then Nyla, then returned to speak with Flaux before
reading the book Nyla gave the player, Flaux had the next
conversation option. This option should only appear after the
player has read the book and not before. This bug could only
surface in the order noted above. Nice catch!
[reported by bball69]


June 19, 2006

! Fixed a bug at the City Gate that caused any henchman to
continue to respawn, creating duplicate copies of itself if the
player left and returned to the area.

June 11, 2006

! Fixed a bug with Annex not spawning at the Everburning Log
or in The Villa if player found Darwien and saved her. A
variable was set early that created this bug.
[reported by JackStorm]


June 10, 2006

! Fixed a bug with Arra's Haunted Home quest. If the player
entered the home near sunrise, the sequence would stop at
dawn, trapping the player inside of the home if the sequence
wasn't completed yet. Added a variable check so sequence
continues if player is inside of the home and the sun has
risen before the player completed the cycle.
[reported by Azarr Kul]
! Fixed a bug with Raf in Springwine Jones Estate. If player
received the Basement Trip quest but turned around to kill
Raf, the quest remained incomplete.
[reported by Azarr Kul]
! Fixed a bad journal entry that was given to player when they
picked up their corpse in Spectral's Call.
[reported by Azarr Kul]


June 8, 2006

+ Added option to rob Lamu when received Lamu's Escort quest.
+ Added Bumps in the Night side-quest.
