We have no (absolutely none) PnP experience.
Friedeyes was and has been a LAN mod for years.
The better scrolls, need to be scribed. Blank
scrolls are hard to find in large quantities.
Caster Classes are a must, as are Rogues!
You can not Solo play no matter how good you are.
No, single class can do most major quests. Most
building is for mixed parties.
Caster Classes are far and beyond the most
powerful single class on Friedeyes but they can not advance without the
Most skills are valuable on Friedeyes. The ones we
are not to fond of are the crafting skills. Parry seems to be a waste:
i.e. we have never found it good in practice. Ride is not used at all.
(Don't put points on ride, it's a waste. We took out Ride, but found
other important things got bugged so we put it back in)
Lore is a must on at least one PC in your party or
Full Heal potions are very rare. The best healing
potions to buy are custom potions; up to 80 points. It's best to have a
Cleric with you on quests.
The Rogue Class is extremely important and needed.
No mixed class can match or replace a high level Rogue. Rogues are weak
fighters, stay hidden!
(Rogues have the highest perma-death rate of any
Saves are extremely important.
High DC on doors is a good indicator that trouble
is inside. Open at own risk!

Run when you see a dragon. The easiest weak dragon
is too hard for any single player.
Friedeyes is not a leveling mod. Life does not end

Simple how to get started
Your PC starts at Birth. Buy a bow and go to
Athkatla. Go south to the crypts. Kill undead while running. Stay away
from the fear auras if they have them. Do Not Melee Undead, you will
die fast! Don't forget arrows! Also, don't go deep inside. Staying near
the door is safer.
Your PC starts at Birth. Buy a melee weapon there
and go to Baldur’s Gate. Find the Specialty Shop and buy a Ghostly
Near the BG docks is the Water Queen's lair. The
Nymphs are easy to kill after you drink the potion. Stay away from the
Queen, you can't kill her; your death is guaranteed. Also keep a keen
eye out for the Mephits, hard to kill for the XP, even if you can.
Water Nymph robes are very valuable but hard to ID at low level. Pick
them all up, and leave before your potion wears off. FAI, or
Friendly Arms Inn is down the east road. There is usually one lore
potion for sale there. Also, you can buy boxes and a lesser magic bag
there. The BG Potion Shop will buy the robes.
A starting mage can use their familiar to fight
Water Nymphs while they stay invisible.
The best advice for new NWN players is to make a
Human Fighter. It's very easy to RP (role play) a human since most
people are one to begin with. Focusing on a Longsword is a good start.
Fighters can use a shield and have good AC. Neutral is a good alignment
to start. Avoid Casters, Rogues, Chaotic evil and Lawful Good to start.
Those all require experience to play well.
Weapon Master Build
That's a good build to start with. After you get a
little experience you can make some changes.
