Guild Membership

Please join the BoW guild at forum.bastionsofwar.com under BioWare's Guilds and Registry. Once your guild application is approved, get the secret code and give it to Shady Character in the entrance, so your characters may receive their guild ring.




Server Status

Please visit the server status page for a real-time update of the BoW servers and how to report a server crash.



How to Report Character Problems

Please report character problems on the character problem forum topic or email Lord Alexander. Make sure you include your player account name and character name!

Common Problems:

Duplicate Character Names: You should never reuse the exact same character name. If you do, you will only be able to see the oldest one created. To retrieve the original character, use Shady Character to mark the duplicate for deletion. When it's removed within 24 hours, your old character with the same name will appear.

Character Deletion Requests: You must use Shady Character to mark characters for deletion and then wait up to 24 hours for them to be removed. If you have an invalid character that you can't login, post or email a request to delete that one specific invalid character.



Archived Characters

Player accounts unused for longer than six months are periodically removed from the server. To have characters restored, please post to the archived character forum topic or email Lord Alexander. Make sure you include your player account name!



Bounty for Exploits & Bugs

As always, please report bugs and exploits in the guild forum. However, if the exploit is particularly bad and/or can be abused by others, please email or IM [DM] Rainywinter. We're especially interested in hearing about exploits that allow players to break the server rules (as opposed to the numerous NWN bugs). Those who report such exploits will be rewarded.

Please report bugs to [DM] Rainywinter:

Custom Character Appearances

Custom appearances are given to DMs, prominent members of the BoW community, and contest winners. It's only a cosmetic change -- they don't have an advantage and must build and level up their characters just like everyone else -- but it's our way of recognizing those who've helped the server or guild.

The custom skin must be humanoid (two arms and two legs), and the size must match the base character (Halflings and Gnomes are small, all other player races are medium). Those who receive custom appearances may also customize their name, portrait, voiceset, description, wings, and tail.

Please note that no custom skin will show the armor and helm you're wearing. Some will show a shield and a few more will show a weapon -- but some won't show either.

When making a request for a custom appearance, please post it to the guild forum topic and include the following information:
Player Login Name:
Character Name (character to receive new appearance):
Previous Character Name (character with previous appearance that will be deleted):
New Appearance #:
New Character Name (change name to this):
New Portrait:
New Voiceset:
New Description:

Requests must include all the above fields. If you don't want to change something (for example, you already have the correct portrait), simply enter "Unchanged." If you're requesting an Appearance # that someone is already using, you must get permission from them to share.

Alternatively, instead of a creature or NPC custom appearance, you may add wings and/or a tail to your character.
Wing choices: 0. None, 1. Demon, 2. Angel, 3. Bat, 4. Dragon, 5. Butterfly, 6. Bird
Tail choices: 0. None, 1. Lizard, 2. Bone, 3. Devil

Players are responsible to preview their choices. Do not request something unless you're absolutely certain it is correct.



Arena Map Submissions

If you would like to submit an arena map to be run in BoW on a trial basis, please follow the instructions below. If players like the map, it'll stay. If not, we'll ditch it and try more.

1. Map size should be a maximum of 12x12 total area (the map doesn't need to be square).

2. Map should contain a minimum of placables, sounds, or other lag-inducing clutter.

3. Please indicate the location of the 4 spawn locations, 1 escape portal (most central location), and 1 to 3 capture points with waypoints.

4. Export the completed area, and e-mail the ERF file to [DM] Aggaron Wraithstouch at maps@bastionsofwar.com. Include your player account name.

Please note that we usually have a large backlog of map submission, so it can take a couple months before it's reviewed. Thanks.



For Everyone, Map Submission FYI:

Please put the name of the map you are submitting in the subject line of your email. Also, please stop sending mod files, zipped files, RAR files, exe files, etc. Simply export the area that you've created and it will save as a small .erf file. I only want erf files due to the high volume.

Other *Optional* ways to help me out with submissions:

1. If you right click the Area you've created, you can adjust the colors, lighting, sounds, etc. by selecting "Properties." Click the "Comments" tab and type in your Player name and email address.

2. Set the Fog Distance to 65m.

3. For all doors and placables, please set the Hardness to 0. They're plot anyway, but that gets rid of needless messages when bashing.

4. For all lockable doors, please put bow_door_bash in the OnPhysicalAttack script. You'll get a missing resources message, but that's okay.

5. If you want any doors to auto close after 10 seconds, just place bow_door in the OnOpen script.

6. In the "Advanced" tab of area properties, please:

a. Select the most appropriate loading screen for your map. Don't select Random.
b. Click "No Rest"
c. Select "Full PVP"
d. Resref and Tag should say the name of the map you've created, not "Area001" or somesuch (this gets a bit more complicated if you didn't name the map from the very beginning, don't worry if you can't figure it out).
