Default Can I still join?

After finally completing HotU (after 8 years), I want to give this a try...

Since I've never played this online before, could someone tell me how is it like regarding pvp? If I understand it correctly, you don't play against others, each one does quests separately by himself? And I just quit anytime and come back to wherever I left my character?

Do a lot of people still play this?

Regarding PvP, there are, or were, arenas for that. The server itself is no PvP, so you don't have to worry about being engaged with enemies and a player coming up and nuking you. I've been on a couple of times the last day or so, and it's pretty empty, which is ok for just goofing off. At it's peak, it was pretty busy sometimes, and pretty empty other times. However, yeah, you can do a lot of stuff on your own, especially now that it's local vault, so your char that just finished the games can be exported from there, and used. I'm thinking I much prefered server vault though, as it keeps the number of chars I have with the same name to a minimum, and I don't accidently log the wrong one in.

Started my game.

This might be a stupid question, but whenever I leave I always come back to Yawning Portal? No way to save character anywhere else?

Also, whenever I quit, a new character gets saved. Is it possible to overwrite same character without having a zillion ones on the list?

Also, everything gets reset when I rejoin (quests and so on)? I was slightly annoyed to find my henchman reset and without all the items I bought him... until I realized I can rebuy 5 times as much after clearing out the basement.

Going to explore Waterdeep, then first level of Undermountain.

By the way Ziroc, wow! Excellent job. I'm really amazed you've done all of this yourself, (and I still haven't see much).

If the server is empty, it will reset when you log out.

I wish now I joined this earlier... kept putting it off telling myself I'll join sometime, and now when I finally did it's empty..

I'm in and out, at odd times since I reinstalled all the stuff. Revisiting an old favorite of mine, Mebrinde Kelven. If I see you, I'll give you a shout out. I'd offer to tour guide, but I find myself getting lost all the time. It's been a while since I've been in, for one, and my memory isn't what it used to be anyway.

Thanks, a question then all those locked doors in Waterdeep, can they be opened? Do I need the Open Lock skill? I can't seem to bash anything, even with elemental damage, and having a thief henchman is a pain if I'm going to have to re-equip him every time I log in...

99% of them are locked because they don't go anywhere, the ones that do aren't locked. Look for map pins, or signs that light up when you push tab to know which ones are good. Be careful of some of the sewer entrances, as some of the residents aren't lowbie friendly.

What about the money lender which is locked? Is anyone there? And the large castle?
