How to Start Playing Avlis: 3 Easy Steps
1) Download the necessary files. (This is a rar-file. Unrar it to your NWN directory)
2) Send a private message on the Avlis forum to PlasmaJohn, maxinion, Eklektikos and TripleAught stating your NWN multiplayer username and that you would like authentication validation. (Please read this thread for indepth information on the Alpha server and authentication). Once you receive a reply message, follow the instructions provided to validate your username. Validation page.
3) While waiting for your file download or a response to your validation request, read the rules summary, and familiarize yourself with the rules of Avlis. "I didn't know" won't save you if you do break a rule. Please be aware that the wiki rules section isn't necessarily fully up to date. Check the rules forum for the most complete and up to date collection of Avlis rules.
3.5) Once you have downloaded the files, validated and authenticated your username and read the rules, you are ready to play! Find an Avlis server under the PW Story category, and have fun! (It is recommended to start on Mikona or Elysia)

When will I get a reply to my PM requesting validation from the validation admins?
The general response time can vary (and often seems to be lower, so don't take this as an average), but don't start worrying until 48 hours have passed.
