Note: This post is about NWN, but feel free to use the thread to discuss inventory issues in any games, or simply in general.

So, Neverwinter inventories... you get six (I think?) pages, plus the option of magic bags.
Firstly, Is there a good easy way (possibly via plugin?) to get things auto-sorted... for example, have all potions go to page 2, all spells to page 3, all weapons/armour/items to page 4, all gems to page 5, and all books/maps to page six, then have the first page for misc things and as the swap-space for weapons?

Is it worth having a couple of powerful magic bags (-80%) for carrying around a lot of gems/spells/potions, to reduce their weight from almost nothing to even more almost nothing, or is it not worth paying so much, when a -20 or -40 bag would be enough?

Books: Are they worth keeping... they generally weight 0.5/1kg and have interesting story bits, but is it worth saving them on the offchance that you might happen to need one for a sub-quest somewhere? (I kinda know the answer is no, but I like collecting books. Sad)

And most annoyingly... why oh why oh why is my henchman so damned lazy that she wont carry things for me when I get encumbered or find lots of heavy treasure! :angry:

if i remember correctly...theres this merchant in the top left quarter of Neverwinter...he sells tons of sweet stuff, such as compound bows and bags of holding, that reduce the weight by 100%

these are seriously sweet...otherwise i find magic bags to be less than useful

don't know about inventory management...

you can download a hakpak that allows you to manage your henchman's inventory...

Reduce weight by 100% would make them weight nothing, yes? Cool.

The top left of the city was the Seedy Tavern which only went upto -80%... unless you mean the top left of the whole map, which is Luskan and my next destination.

I might look into that hakpak, I assume it'll be on nwvault or whatever that site is.

I use page 2 to keep my 6-8 -60% weight bags of holding. Far more worth it imho.

Heh, I've currently got -20,-40,-40,-80 in use, plus another -20 I recently found.

I think I'll sell the two -20s and get a couple of -60s, but that still leaves me with trying to figure out what to put in where. :miffed:

Hmmm, can't remember seeing great equipment on either of the merchants there... I did get the -80% bag from there I think, but no -100% one.

Yes, but ... a-ha! I know what you're talking about now, the auctioneer... yeah, he had some decent stuff, but you had to buy it via text... you couldn't examine it, which scared me off of him. :blink:
