I realised that there was never a formal announcement here to read up: The Catara NWN server is offline for quite some time now, due to time constraints. I might revive it someday, but it is pretty unlikely. If anyone wants to use our custom classes or tools, ping me on twitter (@jollyorc) and we can see what we can do for you! In the meantime, I do recommend The World of Avlis: https://avlis.org/
  • Is the map of Catara available for public consumption?

    I found it very useful for working out how the tiles around the city link up, unfortunately i left the URL for it back in London :(

    If there was a Camb Ro'Que version like the Tairis'nadur map that would be even better!
  • The map doesn't show encounters, labels or similar things, so I say that it's public - for now:
  • Here is a partial map I made a while back just for fun, not very useful for orientation IG though :)

  • Looks nice, would you maybe expand it to the rest of the server? I see an XP bonus coming... :)
  • this link: http://www.orkpiraten.de/map/

    seems to be missing the north-most strip of map.. is it a different version to the link you sent me when i was in London? It's also missing that little north-spur that goes 3 or 4 tiles further than the rest of the northern land border.

    An older version? or my browser being weird?
  • I made a new version, and not all minitiles were exported, no error on your end.
  • ""Looks nice, would you maybe expand it to the rest of the server? I see an XP bonus coming... :)""

    Can't promise I'll get around to that, it took me a long time to make this one...and I'm not sure I have the original files for that pic. If I find the time and inspiration I might have a go at it though.
  • Is there a regional map of Catara? I vaguely remember there being one way back, with an outline of the various provinces...
  • there is, look here: http://catara.orkpiraten.de/die-welt/karte
    Alas, the labels are in german:

    Halblinge -> Halflings
    Gildan (Elbengebiete) -> Gildan (elven nation)
    Orklande -> Lands of the Orks
    Zwerge -> Dwarfs
    Barbaren -> Southern Barbarians

    You'll note that I actually made some booboo with the rivers, but I guess that's ok for now.
  • Thats it! Thanks!

    As for the rivers...do I understand correctly that the part of River Gorn downstream of Catar City is equivalent to the last part of the realife Danube on that map, as it goes to the sea? Is there a large swampy delta there?
    Meanwhile the part of the Gorn upstream of the city flows from the north, so im guessing its equivalent to one of the northern Danube tributaries on the map?
    What about the other large river that flows through the rest of Catara and is equivalent to the rest of the Danube, does it have a name?

    Just stop me if i'm getting into too much details here :D
