Dear GvM fans .... Maybe bad news, maybe its about time to end an epic era of this great NWN-mod.
Avarage daily use is nowadays around 2 ... (some weeks have a better day ... but max 5)
So I host this mod for a very very happy few.

I love to keep this mod alive, but I also have to be real ... especially because I myself almost never play GvM no more.  
We also dont have active Dingeon Masters no more ... so the true "GvM spirit" is actually gone.

So I'm pulling the "Host-plug"  .... around end of April 2024 !
accumulative reason: I'm visiting China then for a month for a KungFu experience in a Temple on Wudang Mountain.

I want to give a huge! Thanx for making the hosting possible thanks to the old HFO-Team
especially hfodf and ManiacK ... by keeping this website alive
(without this website ... no good GvM-mod experience ... thnx m8s !
And naturally also -firecracker- ... thanks m8 for helping this mod up-to-date as long as needed to actually get to the new EE-NWN server methode on Steam and and keeping this mod alive ... even after some "heavy" NWN-updates.

And ofcourse a big thnx for all the active users of this mod ... especially some special people who reached out to me by mailing me on my hotmail email-address.
... You all gave me a lot of extra motivation to keep hosting this mod as long as it lasted.

I'm more than willing to give this modfile and servervault to someone who wants to keep hosting by the way.

So please pay attention .... this server is up till April 20th ... after that its "gone"
When I'm back in June I check this forum for maybe the last time .... and then I'm leaving GvM behind me

I'll stay "as active as possible for me" in this forum till April 23th.

Love you all !

wRspct!
Grey

Dear GreyDeth,

You are a Prince, you are a King, you are the manifestation of what it means to be a true Bro.

For years, you have hosted this masterpiece of a server without fuss or drama. You are truly a God amongst mortals.

As one of those few that still roam these Lands of Middle Earth (when time permits), I am eternally grateful for the countless hours of fun, sweat, tears, frustration and absolute joy that this server has brought me. This would not have been possible without your selfless involvement. Thank you.

As you said, also huge huge thanks to the devs and DMs who volunteered many hours to keep this place fun, balanced, growing and active.

I would absolutely love to get a copy of the modfile/vault so I can dabble in setting this place up again if I find some time. Please shoot me a DM if you can.

Once again, thank you and god speed!

Good afternoon:

I ve seen your post and iŽd like to thank you all happy times i have had on this server you have keep up and running. I ve read also you can send a copy to NEP if he is able to run the server. Id like to continue playing this server but if no one is going to keep server running, could i have also a copy?


Thank you

Hi all,

All good things must come to an end..

Thanks for the hundreds and hundreds of hours of memorable play-time!

Regarding the mod: would it be an acceptable option to give it a final resting place in some public archive? There to be downloaded by anyone that wants it? I guess none of the developers would mind, looking at the open atmosphere that has surrounded the mod. Sure, there have been many discussions and debates, some of them heated, but mostly on content :-)

Anyway, the alternative of just "throwing it in the garbage bin" seems a waste.


Cheers!

Heyyy bad_karma !
So great to hear from you again, you were also one of the great inspirators for my ongoing hosting.
as for public place ...
nah
... dont even know where to begin searching for such an anonymous  place ... let alone maintain it and keeping it alive.
I just give it to "driven" people ... somewhat in the hope they continuing this great mod.

Loved it that you liked playing this mod.
Maybe one day in the future we meet/talk again.

Grey: I think you're on the discord right? I'm `df` there. Can you send me the file via discord perhaps? I like to save it in case someone wants it in a few years Smiley.

I've paid the last bill a few months ago for the forum/ db/ website and i'll let it die-out next billing cycle.

It's been great!

(Grey Edit:
Youre one of my heroes ... and yeah I'm still on discord ... I will reach out for you there.
Thnx for all youre effort in all these years!
BTW if this website is gone ... there also will be less incentive to play GvM ... cause the GvM-mod only can be played thanx to all the information stored here .... but I fully understand if you pull the plug from this forum ... I will try to make as many backups from all the great stuff stored here, maybe it will get in handy for someone in the future ..... Thnx for all and especially for keeping this forum alive for so long! )

This is spooky!

Haven't played for at least 3 years... and decided to check the forum as the game is still on my steam account.. guess my spidey senses told me it was the end of an era...

Started playing with my mate on the server not long after the game came out... and never looked back.. at that time I frequently couldnt get on a 64 (i think) player server! Fun days.. tons on arguing about everything on that old forum.. cant even remember most of the names now although Yoghurth has mentioned most of them.. i would include him in that list too. (so many dutch people! Smiley

After that i logged off a couple of years then back on then off... but i must admit although it was fun i did miss the trill of PvP on a large scale.. or everyone log on as a Mordor or Gondor to do a raid..

Grey I would also like to echo the sentiments and thank you for your time and dedication which brought me not hours of fun but probably years of it!!!

Hope all goes well for you in your life and i'll log on to see if anyone takes the reigns, once again thanks for the good times..

Same goes to Yog, Nep and BK take care.

Rabbac... of the many SD/Monk builds  Evil

(Grey Edit:
So much thnx m8 ... really like to hear I could help you in some enjoyment by keeping this server alive ... All the best to you as well, hope someone can and will take over this hosting so you and others can keep the fun of playing GvM)

Holy crap seems like I am just on time checking this site after a few years.

I can remember Rodriguez suggesting GvM to me so many years ago and then we went on a rampage when Turril was still hosting, so much fun on a 4 people team with Yoghy.
It was my first time on a PvP server and I liked sorting our new super builds for farming etc.

Thanks for all the events maybe time for a new live event at your place soon Cheesy

(Grey Edit:
Chaos m8 !! ... you where one of my many influencers to get to this server too ... loved youre dedication in grinding and puzzling (still in awe of youre post ... "the last suit you will ever wear - the Monk set!)... was so inspiring for me ... so sad you left and didnt come back ... missed ya a lot .... and indeed maybe a live event again ... sounds great)
