I used to play A LOT .... for years... on a PW RP Server called cerea which was built by fellow nicknamed Weby.
It was amazing creation,
Cerea was the module on NWN1 and Cerea2 was a module on NWN2.
Basically it revolved arround theme of life vs unlife and was very heavy on scripted mechanics and dm led events.
After most events of players activities we used to write on the forums a summary (short stories from our characters point of view).
At some point Weby took all of those and published a book containing the entire history of the PW and our stories.
was really splendid server and it worked so well on NWN1 but when NWN2 came out it was so sluggish and took too much time to patch Cerea 2 kinda died out. shame.
I fondly remember some of the really cool stuff that server had like Kickball gangs guilds (imagine two teams of giant half orcs playing fantasy football while pillaging :P ), or instead of the usual "Portals" you had a quest which took you half a continent into a temple on mountaintop volcano in order to retrieve the fabled "Staff of travel" which had a nifty script to save location and teleport to the main city - then you could teleport to your saved location at any time.
Another cool feature was when epic levels added we had to search items called "keys of power" in order to merge them into epic item which allowed us to get 1 epic level each time - other way to get epic levels was rewards for tokens.
Tokens were a reward we got for taking part in DM events (which we had daily) and based on the number of tokens we could advance in one of the many many guilds in game or get epic levels \ change appearance\ become gods etc
yes you could if you grind for long long time to create a temple and if enough players\npcs followed you then you'd become a lesser deity in game (which took mass dedication iirc only 1-2 players became gods).
But most of all playing for years with same people on world which shifted and advanced itself according to our choices was freaking epic.
We did time travel, flying ships and crafting before it was cool
damn the nostalgia hit me right in the feels
at any rate links:
Book(which I own and I recommend it wholeheartedly).
