Okay I'm having the same issue now. I'm playing through single player mode, the Official Campaign of NWN. I'm halfway through Chapter 3, and Sharwyn died again... She dies a lot. But when I used the Stone of Recall to return to the temple and get her back, a few hours and many quicksaves later, she's not there! I've gone back through the area where she died the last time and she's not there. I don't have a save with her there, so I can't go back. I tried using the DM Client to script her back in, but when I try to load my game it gives me the dreaded "CD Key unauthorized" and won't let me do it. I've rechecked my CD keys, they're all correct, but nevertheless it says they're wrong. Any suggestions here? I've never had my henchman disappear like this, and since the DM Client won't work I don't know what to do.

>>Do you still have Tomi's contract? He won't recognise you without it. If not, try >>looking in the Divining Pool at the back of the building where you appear when you >>activate the Stone of Recall.


Yup, still got it. Still not working. I just ditched the game and did started over. I just gotta make sure I hire and fire via dialogue instead of the radial menu.

Oh well, I'm a chick this time!!

Like several other people posting here, I have run into a henchman problem in Chapter 2 of the OC.

My Rogue (Tomi) has got stuck in permanent combat mode. I think this may have been caused by not using the conversation panel to dismiss him.

He just stands in the barracks now shouting about halfling death and I can't talk to him as I get a message that this object is busy.

I just wanted to check if there had been any solutions discovered for this?

Is there any chance you could throw a charm person on Tomi and maybe reset him?

Use the stone of recall and see if he follows you. If not, then exit and restart.

I also had the "henchman stuck in combat" problem wherein Grimgnaw kept shouting his phrases and I could never rest. I ended up resolving the problem by issuing the "Stand Your Ground" command through the radial menu. He then exited combat and started behaving normally again.

I've read a lot of posts trying to find a fix for the problem of getting henchman to change from melee to ranged weapons when told to but have been unable to find anything that works (for me)

I have the original game with no expansions. The version number was 1.11 which I played for a bit before patching to 1.68. Before patching, I was able to get the henchman to use ranged weapons without a problem. Now after patching to 1.68 they say they will use ranged weapons without changing over.

Is there a fix for the standard game or would I need to get the expansions (SoU/HoTU) to have a chance of fixing it?

Good Evening,

I'm new to NWN, did a lot of searching for this question but can't find an answer.

Can you give new armor and weapons to your henchman. I played a module today where you could do that. I'm back in OC now with Daelen RedTiger as my henchman, and I can't talk to him to give him a newer weapon.

Thank you for the help.

Cheers,

Casey

You can't change your henchman's gear in the OC, only in HOTU I think. The best you can do is tell him to level up so he'll equip some better gear himself.

Just finished reading all the posts - Great info. Still a little confused. I have a good amount of the quest items in my sack (I had no idea about the quests) and was just about to go onto chapter 2. So if I speak to one of the henchmen/women & find out their quest will it matter that I already have the ring, the leven bread paper etc. that they need? I was wondering if I should store it first, talk/hire, dismiss them, retrieve item and talk to them again.

Nope, it doesn't matter if you already have the quest item. Just means that if you're a high enough level, you can go through all three of their story dialogues and give it to them straight away.

Iīve been reading all the posts here and lot of people has or had problems with hench weapon change.
Well once I solved this problem using a realy strange and easy procedure.

I was playing with a palladin and my hench was Tomi, and to kill the yuan-ti in chapter 1/Beggarīs Nest I asked him to use melee weapon (I always play with tomi as missile weapon), when we finished the battle I asked him to use missile again and he stayed with melee .... well as a palladin I had that magic "Magic Weapon" (that gives the character +1 to hit and damage, and the weapon become sacred giving more +1d8 to undeads and just work on melee weapons), I cast this magic on him and told didnīt work because he was with a missile weapon in hand and than the bug has thrown away.

Resume: Melee weapon, I asked to hand missile weapon, he stayed with melee in hand, I casted "Magic Weapon", didnīt work and in his hand chenged to missile weapon as I asked.

See ya warriors!!!!

I'm having the "stuck in combat mode" problem with Sharwyn in chapter 2. She also isn't part of my party, and talking to her gets an "object busy message". Any suggestions? I'm tempted just to export my character, start a new chapter 2, and import the character.
