The Confederation of Planes and Planets, known as CoPaP, is a group of persistent worlds in the role-playing video game Neverwinter Nights (NWN) based on third edition Dungeons & Dragons. The servers hosting the CoPaP persistent worlds are linked together using the Neverwinter Nights Extender (NWNx) application. The goal is to create a consistent virtual universe for in character interaction through servers using a common code set and joined through the use of the NWNx Vaultster system.[1] This system allows players to travel from member world to member world using the same player characters.

While each CoPaP server has its own team, rules and history they all follow a set group of rules and policies. Membership is required and the servers all enforce age limits for players, as well as in character player conduct.

CoPaP currently has 5 linked worlds with several worlds in development.

Present linked members include the world of Avlis, the Islands of Arkaz, the Plane of Ysgard - Hala, the Gray Wastes and Tairis'nàdur.

Currently all CoPaP worlds support NWN Version 1.69.

Avlis[edit]

Black Dagger: The World of Avlis
Avlis is an HotU CoPaP server. There are currently 9 servers which make up the world: The City of Mikona, The City of Elysia, The City of Le'Or T'Nanshi, The City of Kuras, The City of Visimontium, the Nation of Deglos, the Nation of Ferrell, The Wilderness, and The Underdark.

Avlis is a campaign setting designed for use with Dungeons and Dragons developed over the past 20 years from a home-grown campaign setting, and branching into a large scale online campaign.

Setting[edit]

As a setting it is most notable for being used for the Neverwinter Nights persistent world of the same name, which spans 9 active servers and has one of the largest active player bases among such worlds.

Customization[edit]

Avlis has a psion class, and 8 custom holy warrior classes, one for each alignment other than Lawful Good (where the paladin class already fills that role). Avlis has a unique database-driven crafting system, a highly customized magic system, a specialized companion training system, and underwater areas. Players can also discover in-game boosts to classes such as a barbarian rage system that introduces different ways to rage, and specialized spell casting abilities that go above and beyond normal wizard powers. Spellcasters can change the elemental type of any spell they cast using special metamagic rods. Normal fighters gain more benefits from buff spells due to a custom Militant Level Bonus system that encourages spell casters to buff fighters, promoting player teamwork.

The Avlis wiki contains a full list of haks and additional world information.
