BuffNoEffects1.4.zip removes buff ballhttp://nwvault.ign.com/fms/Download.php?id=98129
NoSkins.zip removes skin effects like stoneskinhttp://nwvault.ign.com/fms/Download.php?id=86089
extract them to you override directory "My DocumentsNeverwinter Nights 2 Override"
copy any one of the NoSkins files and rename it "sp_tortoise_shell.sef" to get rid of the tortoise shell effect as well.
copy the sp_shield.sef from BuffNoEffects and rename it to sp_shield_faith.sef to get rid of shield of faith effects as well.
NOTE: this will only effect what you see on your screen, other players who do not use these modifications will see your brightly glowing bubbly stone covered butt.
If at any time you decide you want to see certain effects, just find the file that corresponds to the spell you want to see and rename it something not ending in .sef, like sp_shield.sef.bak and the effect will show up as default again.
