NEW PLAYERS CHECK HERE - Getting Started: How to Connect to the Server

Unread post by Administrator »

[ original post by all_distorted ]
Welcome to Baldur's Gate: The Sword Coast Chronicles!

For more in depth information about getting started as a new player on our server, please check out this post on our wiki ! :

Baldurs Gate: The Sword Coast Chronicles is a persistent online role-play community. It acts like a large scale, collaborative D&D campaign. Immerse yourself in your character and join other characters in both player driven initiatives and active living Dungeon Master led events across the entire Sword Coast !

The server is set in Forgotten Realms setting, and is based off of the 3.5 ruleset, our lore is a mix of custom lore due to the nature of a living campaign, and a mix of 2.0 edition era lore. If you have ever played the old Baldurs Gate SRPG's back in the day, then you'll have a pretty decent idea of what you're going to be in store for here.

This server features content from Obsidian's Neverwinter Nights 2, as well as its Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir expansions. In order to play here you will need to have the base game and both of its expansions installed.

If you do not own Neverwinter Nights 2 but are interested in playing, you can grab the game here:

We wish you a warm welcome to our home away from home, from the Dungeon Masters, Administrators and developer teams. Please feel free to reach out to us here on the forums, or join our Discord here:

The server's Neverwinter Nights 2 patch version is 1.23.1765.

If you do not have the Client Extension installed, we highly recommend you install it and launch from this. It greatly adds to compatibility and stability of the game across many systems.

You can connect to the server from within the Neverwinter Nights 2 menu using the "Direct Connect" button to connect by typing in: (This one works best)


IP address:
Server 1 Port Number: 5121.

IP address:
Server 2 Port Number: 5122.

If you connect to any other IP address besides these you are NOT connecting to Baldur's Gate, but what might be a third party proxy server that we have no control over spoofing our NWNList listing. So even if you're using the Gamespy listing, double check to make sure the IP address for the server you're selecting is The administration would recommend always using Direct Connect to mitigate this risk completely.

There is no password. If you ever see the server listed in red and password protected, it is undergoing a reset. Please wait 2-3 minutes and connect when the password protection has been taken away.

The files required for playing on the server can be downloaded via the Auto-Downloader, which will begin immediately once you try to log in. If you have issues with the Auto-Downloader, please see this thread for the required files.

Finally, before beginning play here, please make sure that you have acquainted yourself with our rules.

Welcome, once more, to BG:TSCC: Enjoy your time here, build epic stories, and have fun!

Here's a link for manual download of server files.!Ao0NtOkPBTQ8iIkL5mc ... Q?e=e5eSLA
This is synced with my own game folder so should be up to date somewhat regularly, however it can happen that it's not or a day later or something, so if you need/want to use it, please have patience.
