I believe this to be one of the greatest community events in wurm, I have heard much about it and seen some screens, but I have never been to one.
now that I can do my fair share of the improving I would love to participate in one along with everyone who joins in.
And certainly I would love to host it for Pristine and Release, and so I shall!

What's an Impalong?
Its a player created event cherished by many, immortalized by Willow, a mass gathering of community to come together and party, improve each others wares, enjoy each others company, play games and celebrate the true freedom of Wurm!

Who should come?
EVERYONE! and anyone who likes to party!

Skilled players who would like to give back to community,

New players needing a bit more ql on their tools and weapons.

 

What should I bring?
Your personal items that Need improving

Your Tools if you would like to help improve other players items
A branded horse of your village allows you to lead it out of the deed pens safely.

A Secure cart to store your belongings in during games and races.

 

What should I leave behind?

Dead weight, the kitchen sink, 6 longswords.

 

Where is the Pristine Impalong?
At Blossom market  Y29 - X17

A Lovely and very tricky maze, that will be standing well after impalong x)

Games?
~ I will Host games as I can
-Scavenger Hunt! teams set out to collect a random list of items from around the nearby game world. (fun but needs work. back to the drawing board!)
-Pan Filling! "Master Su Chef" a 1v1 elimination race to fill a number of pans with various ingredients the fastest, as players are eliminated the number of pans goes up, all meals will go to feed the impalong :P
-All kinds of RACES! from cows to boats, long and short distances.
-Fishing competition! you will have 30 minutes to catch 5 different kinds of fish.
-Sparing arena! battle it out with spatchula's frying pans, A felled tree? who knows!
-Deal or No Deal (made famous by Gumbo)! Hosted by Aum and Explora
-The Pristine Triathlon! teams of 2 will have to work together to cross the finish line.

Building event! attach a brick to the Obelisk have your name immortalized when its finished!

After Party?!?! Massive hunting party on the last day.

How do you Impalong?!?
in the secure buildings are forges and coffins with signs, you may drop and item in it without anyone else being able to pick it up besides yourself and the main trusted helpers.
anyone can imp these items but only you can pick it back up. sometimes you loose the ability to pick it back up after logging off to long, in that case myself or a trusted helper can return the item to you.
if of course you Name your items!

 

-additional note: be careful not to drop your items in someone elses backpack or container.

materials are in a separate central building, Crafters will be given access to this building. and we can pass out lumps to anyone else who would like to join in imping

 

Every bit of quality you add is appreciated by someone =).

Really nice idea, Aum! :)


 


If you're looking for some more idea about what you can do on the impalong, in terms of contests / events, here is one event I really enjoyed how it was organized: http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/80259-celebration-summer-festivalimaplong-8th-of-june-onwards-wurmstock-2013/


 


One other thing other than imps and contests, I would really love to see would be a community project, which would "force" us to actually work together towards a common goal, but also stand on as a living memory of the Impalong. Dunno maybe raise a small island in the water, just enough to build a Collosus on it and have everyone help with building mats, attaching, etc and have it raised from scratch to complete during Impalong. You could eventually just add a new one on every edition. :) What do you think?


 


Cheers,


Alex

Awesome!! It's high time we organised that, thank you for taking up the challenge.


 


In the run up, i can help with bricks, mortar, wood and building. I would like to donate mats for the cooks, gold/silver jewellery (60ql) for race participants, and iron for our smiths. Anything, let me know.

Need an idea?


 


Chapel area to support casts, batteries and sermons.


 


Three altars and a fenced in area or a building so the priests are secure from possible incursions or mob spawns.


 


Coffins to store enchantable items


 


A bsb or three to store possible stuff to sac for favor.

Bang out door locks like crazy and store them in barrels or whatever. Building up a cache for good priests that would like to enchant peoples stuff for them. Battlepants does this every year and I think he has like 10k locks or something crazy going like that this year for the impalong.

Happy Halloween to everyone!


 


and many many thanks for the ideas thus far, hoping to blend them all together for a smashing good time. =)


 


the time is drawing near!


 


as i see it, this is the best way to keep things semi organized during the event,


 


the event building (4x9 2 stories) will hold all of the imping stations in a secure location.


there will be a separate building to hold the materials iron/wood/ect for the impers. you must request access when you come.


a separate building for priests


besides a few trusted helpers, only people who drop things will be able to pick them up again. however please rename your items! if for any reason items cant be picked back up by the owner, either the helpers or myself can return it provided it has your name on it.


all unamed things will be set offdeed for scavengers after the event.


 


I believe this is the most secure way and how its been done before, but not fully sure as I haven't been to one yet!


 


I'm still working on getting the races/games details together, will post them soon and update the main post :P


 


enjoy your ghosts n candy day!

Cheers :)
