    In all things there must be a balance. Good and evil. Right and wrong. The Sith necessitate the Jedi... just as do the the Jedi necessitate the Sith. When this balance is misaligned, it is up to us neutral actors to restore it. A new player has entered Celebration's eternal struggle for the Seals. The Venerable Hardened Black Dragon! And its power is overwhelming compared to its seal clubbing counterparts! "I'm going to go club a seal" "not today" We will be breaking the seal of the mine within which the seal guardian is sealed (MAP LINK) at this time:

    Almost every day that I play Wurm Online, I open Niarja. It helps me keep abreast of the news regarding Uniques - which I frequently host public slayings of on Freedom. Every now and then when I open the page, my heart jumps! So many new names! Oh. Right. Got got by the list of living uniques. Again. Often I'd dream of clearing up that list of uniques. Would Niarja delete the category? Would it remain but be empty? But aside from that one on Xanadu after Charcoal died, they're all on Epic. And Epic was PvP. And I don't PvP. And then one day, something very peculiar happened. Something that would forever change Stanlee; Something he would never quite forget. They took the initiative! In a spur of the moment move, I decided to take a look at the list of slayers. As soon as I could, I got in touch with Stainless to congratulate him. I reasoned that, with a name so close to mine, he must be the leader. This assumption turned out to be almost entirely correct. After some talking, I gave him an offer he couldn't refuse: I, and whatever friends crazed enough to join me, would come over and lend some peoplepower to clearing up the rest of the uniques on that server. After all, why would they stop at the hatchlings? In return, they got all of the loot. It turned out the loot was not the only incentive to this: the two champion uniques had no tether, and were quite prone to smashing defences, deeds and lost lumberjacks. I even did art for this, which I used in the signup sheet for my alliance. The signup sheet showed more interest than I'd anticipated, and it became quickly clear we'd need to make our own gear. I thought we'd just be shoved in some little shed out in the open, outside a deed for security's sake, but we were invited inside their megafort! Not only was it ridiculously defensive, but it turns out enemies have a pretty severe CR penalty on the home server, meaning we were safer there than on my deed on Release (open design, champ trolls)! Such tall walls! Luckily, skills move from Freedom to Epic 1:1 (so long as you don't have a 3x death multiplier on that skill on Epic), so I could take all of my skills over. Oh. Right. All of my skills. I main priest. That'll be a- Nah kidding, I got to like 70 leatherworking in a day over there. Skillgain is silly fast there, and so are the timers. Within a few days, we had gear that was a strange mix of good and disposable. Good in QL, disposable in how little time it took us to make and imp. In fact, PvP almost felt approachable - disposable gear, no affinities to lose. But I don't PvP. I never thought I'd get this one done! Before the big day, I got to ride around. See some of the sights. Which I'll share with you now: Collecting some of my teammates (note: a bug causes empty gear slots to be visually filled with your other cluster's gear when crossing. No effect on gameplay, and no-one else could see my mask) When's the last time you saw treeless plains? Beardyman's megadeed. Nothing like it, truly remarkable. On one fateful Friday, the stars aligned and enough of us were free to begin. Unlike Freedom slaughters that I host, these fights had a rush of mortality to them - though no-one died I think. Scale/hide drops are a set but small amount over there, no randomness to that. Sorcery items don't drop from humanoids or dragons at all. Chaaaarge! Yes, I'm using a shield with a huge axe. No, the shield isn't real, it's from the same bug as earlier. This boy was biiiiig! Double Dragon! These two were inseparable, so they died together too. Sweet. Poor guy pictured just about tanked both, serious badassery. And when the dust settled, the list had been trimmed significantly. I cannot thank our hosts enough for helping us try Epic, and guiding us. Despite what I'd frequently read on the forums - that Epic is bad - we had a blast, it was a revitalizing rush from start to finish. Think even a few carebears were eyeing up PvP! But, if you open Niarja, you can no doubt see that the list is not trimmed enough. To that end, I highly encourage people to get in contact with factions there, and do as I have! It's a real blast, I can't recommend it enough. I might even throw in a little something for someone, at random, who manages to kill one of the remaining living uniques! Edit: since originally writing this (I wanted to wait for the Creative Constructs thread to close before posting it) it seems others have taken to mopping up the rest of the list! I hope they're having as good a time as I did, and hope to see some of them write about it here if so! The Living Uniques list now stands at a whole SIX (we can't find the one left on Desertion!) and it's going down steadily!

    Well, it was 10 years ago today that I took the ‘risk’ of loading all that was needed to play Wurm after reading about it. I will not mention all those who helped me in the very early days- they will know who they are- but after a decade playing and enjoying Wurm I feel that I have a reasonable excuse to make a few comments about my perception of Wurm. 1. I play for pure enjoyment and have never really bothered with improving certain skills over others. I suppose I would be called a jill / jack-of-all-trades but definitely a master of none! I feel that it is this that has allowed me to continue to play almost every single day without needing a break from ‘the grind’. I love playing after a long day at work, when the weather is not great or simply as a form of relaxation and attempt to catch up on the latest gossip in the forum. I often smile at the humour that is so prevalent in chat. 2. I know that some more vocal players criticise the way that development on Wurm has evolved or is evolving- and I fully respect that right, however, I simply wish to thank every single person- developer or otherwise- past and present who has contributed in some way towards the amazing improvements that I have been witness to during this decade. I feel that what we have here is a game that is simply unique. 3. The community in Wurm is usually second-to-none. Every person I have met in-game has been helpful, amusing or kind. Perhaps I have been fortunate but I feel that Wurm is blessed with people of all ages who usually have a mature attitude to difficulties and problems. This is something that we should all be proud of. 4. Is Wurm without faults / problems, of course not but for most of the time these do not affect my enjoyment and so I shall give my trust to the development team to work on any issues and leave me to improving my standard of Wurm life. The future? I have never got involved in the religion aspect and that is something that I may be missing out on. The other thing is- to my shame- I have never been to an impalong as I always feel that my skills are not high enough. I must push myself to attend one! I am sure that the developers will also have some ideas that most folks cannot even imagine. One thing is certain and that is I hope to be playing Wurm as often as I can during the next decade and hopefully for longer. Thank you all. Spolmit / Malenkimit / Kalmit

    ... Which is why I've once again taken it upon myself to host another public dragon slaying! \o/ This time, it's a blue dragon! (First time dragon scale is being publicly available for all the little Joe's! It's been pointed out to me that this is false. Sorry!) The beast has been penned and deeded. When is it? The event will take place on Saturday 9pm GMT+2 Where is it? Cadence: The slaying is happening at the red spot. If you come from other servers then you can get fairly close with both a knarr and a bigger boat. Our deed is close to the slaying spot and can be found on the highway. Feel free to swing by our deed (Tranoas, can be found on the highway) if you need to travel early and need some place to stay until the event. We got a few publicly available beds for the sleep bonus! Why should I come? For the fun and to lag the server, of course! .. On a more practical note, you will get rewarded with some dragon scale as well as blue dragon blood, which is used for potion of butchery! What do I need to know and to bring? Bring: a tent if you feel unsafe. Know: Don't ride a cart or a wagon during the battle, especially while using hell horses as draft animals. Bring: A party mood and all your friends! Donations Some people feel obligated to donate some of the spoils they get to whoever organized the event. Please, do not feel obligated to do so. Feel free to swing by, grab the loot and use it or sell it! Only donate if you appreciate the public event as well as feel financially capable and don't mind parting ways with whatever you're donating! At this point, it should be obvious enough that I'll keep making public dragon slaying events of whatever dragons I find, so don't you worry about that! But if someone wants to donate a genesis cast on one of our hell ponies, that'd be fantastic!

    Category: Wacky and Wild! Come on down to Stan's Deed Of Wonders! We have a range of strangeness to confuse you, and anomalies to bewilder you! Each one found in cursed crypts, and brought back to here for your amusement! Usually a tour is a reasonable 1g25 - but for you dear judges and viewers, this time it is free! Our first attraction: The Sideways Diner! Truly, if Breakfast In Bed is magnificent, then this is the pinnacle of vertical banquets! Watch as not a single item falls from the table in which it is set! Then, feast your eyes upon the terrible and cursed Ur'gan's Chair of Shrinking! Yes! Whomever rests upon the chair is temporarily shrunk to the size of half a regular person! But beware, should you be resting upon the chair when Ur'gan rises from his grave, you will be stuck at that size... forever! These are all of my attractions... for now. I look forward to wandering the servers and collecting more! Ahem. Now it should be said that, rather than actually being actual chairs or objects placed on walls (or photoshop, as I use for my hunting threads), these screenshots are creations of small illusions or engineering. This will absolutely get me kicked out of the Alliance of Magicians to reveal how I did it, so first try and examine the images carefully, use your own ideas as to how they were performed.

    A few notes: 1) We will be using International Standard ISO 3103 to prepare the tea. 2) An unknown thing about this Standard is that it is recommended to arrive at least an hour early, to account for travel issues. I'm not known to wait. 3) The tea is not boneless. One of you may end up with a bone in your tea. This is expected. 4) Despite being "greenish white" the resulting Salve of Frost from the blood will not also apply acid damage. 5) The tea is being prepared at the usual spot: X17 Y31 6) Formal attire is desired, but not required. 7) Serving is at this time

    The Venerable Angry Horse-hater is here! And frankly, this one's personal. Good pre-patch horses were lost to this one. Bring your sharpest revenge-sticks to Bruce's Flying Circus! And for their sakes: do not bring a horse! Any other mount (that may join Dancepick and Lightningace) are fine. Take those ropemaking potions, and make rope in the honour of those that fell.

    I was thinking of making this thread yesterday, but didn't particularly feel compelled as I wasn't sure how much effort I wanted to put into a post like this; but I came up with some ideas and talking points. A year ago, Wurm Online launched on steam, alongside a new cluster of servers; There was a lot of alluded changes coming to both PvP and PvE servers, how they functioned, revamped focus on them (changing how missions worked, base pvp rules, etc.) Launch was.... pretty awful! I don't blame them too much for this on a technical aspect, since it's probably the most amount of players wurm has ever had at any given time of its lifespan, and though it took days/weeks for the issues to actually be fixed properly, they eventually were. A couple months after the launch, some old subsystems were re-enabled: Missions and Valrei, as well as the unique items and rifts. From there, there have been minimal changes. Changes regarding channel grinding, favor gain and linking that lead to a change in the sacrifice system. Changes to the pvp server over time until its population more or less died off, mostly handled by 1 dev. A combat "rework" that still baffles me to this day The animal handling rework, the first thing i'd call an actual 'update' to the game, of which has been mostly negative (though if the kinks get ironed out might be okay maybe?) And in the future, we're still potentially going to see the exploration rework; There were a lot more pvp updates planned but I greatly doubt those will see the light of day given that the pvp server is more or less dead- unless focus goes back to Chaos for some reason) That's been the last year, more or less. Very few updates, most of which were awful initially, feedback seemingly rarely actually accounted for. We still barely have an idea of who, behind the scenes, is actually working on the game actively, is responsible for these changes- and to the degree they work in (Since I last bothered to check, most of the devs are part-time and there is still no full-time developer for the game). Yet on an investing level, the playerbase has doubled and is still steadily draining the banks of something around 6,000 accounts which are definitely more than enough to upkeep the servers and pay the (nonexistant) staff. It's a good reminder to most people that most members of the staff in this game (your game masters, community assistants, etc) are almost all volunteer staff- being literally paid in premium time and sleep powder to participate, minus maybe 1 or 2 (at least, i'm assuming the head gm's might get paid something? and maybe the community manager?). The game costs very little to run, and will probably remain so forever; the people in charge could literally (have? we're basically at that point) not update the game at all for months and run away with a decent profit; and it seems that's the decision they've made regarding the outlook of the game. Given, this game is the abandoned project of Rolf and most of the codebase is in a pitiful state that requires expert-level spaghetti wrangling, it's not an easy task- but it's not an impossible one, either, given that people (in our community, even) have created sizeable changes to the game in form of WU mods. So. What does that leave for the future? I'm curious on other people's opinions on the game in its current state (mostly veterans, honestly), and where they think the game will go. I have a hard time seeing wurm actually die out- other than the pvp scene. The game is tailor made to have a huge reliance on the community coming together and doing the bulk of the work required to maintain the game- and there are lots of people in this community who are satisfied with the game in its current state, and will likely be satisfied with the game staying the same for the years to come- these are the people who currently form a huge chunk of the game's core audience, and will probably perpetually feed its maintenance. But I can't see real, reasonable growth; Not in the state that updates come in, not in the state that the game encourages new players to stay and enjoy their time. Dare I say even that the dev's attempts at updating the game in what minor ways they have are consistently backfiring and alienating their current playerbase- all because they lack the proper leadership when it comes to providing good, quality changes to the game. There is little feedback, there is little vision for the future, nor an overall design vision for how the game's different subsystems should come together into one whole; The game is more or less a massive patchwork project of completely different subsystems usually headed by one inspired developer who manages their own subsystem, rather than coming together as a unified game (see: archeology, valrei, rifts, cooking, fishing, animal handling now- and i suspect, exploration in the future). In summary; I don't have hope for the future in this game ever being good, and I'll probably actively try and get people not to invest time into this game knowing what comes at the end of playing it for a month, or a year. But I'm not the whole community; I'm curious how others see this, and what hopes they have for what's to come- and more importantly, what actually keeps people playing at all (and don't say other players, or the deed you've had for 5 years- both of those are just entrapments) I am also greatly amused that I apparently put more thought into doing something for a year of the steam server's being launched than the staff of this game did.

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to follow up the event with some stats regarding casts, attendance, events, prizes and screenshots! First off I had a great time hosting this event, I owe particular thanks to @Goldfinch, @KindraShae, @Tilda, @Bakhita, @Explora, @Sidereal, @Enki, @Aion, Serraphine, Bela...? (GM sorry brain melt) and a few others GM's who popped in. In addition Reddragon for preforming a Bar service that everyone really enjoyed and we will def be promoting more next year, Jyndae for his oversight of the sermon cycles, and as always thank you to the Veteran Impers, and Casters who show up year and year to these things to help give to the community! This event also couldn't happen without he support of all the generous donations and discounted resources. There are far too many donors to list in this post so ill just reference a few and out the rest in the spoiler. First@ChampagneDragonfor her continued extreme generosity with favor production and donations to the effort, she basically works for free and I have to force her to take my money or threaten to break into her deed and feed the token! Then we have @Eveningand @brattygirlWho both donated huge amounts of super high quality pizza's for everyone eating pleasure! Ok on to some stats! All these stats are extrapolated from event logs, adjusted for time i slept, the factored by the approximate # of imps and casts it takes to reach the goal of the represented time. Service List: Starting Favor: Favor Used: Usage %: Approximate Cordage favor: 1,100,000 718,000 65.27% Est. # Of casts based on favor used: Materials Used: Usage %: % of Casts: # of 70+ Casts: Approximate Amount of LT Casts: 84,006 11.70% 840 300 Approximate Amount of Nimble Casts: 76,108 10.60% 761 272 Approximate Amount of COC Casts: 164,566 22.92% 3,291 1,175 Approximate Amount of WOA Casts: 123,209 17.16% 2,464 880 Approximate Amount of MS Casts: 45,306 6.31% 453 162 Approximate Amount of AOSP Casts: 73,667 10.26% 2,105 752 Approximate Amount of BOTD Casts: 59,738 8.32% 1,707 610 Other Casts: 91,258 12.71% 2,074 741 Totals: 717,856 99.98% 13,695 4,891 Est.

Fatalities: Lawn Darts: 25 Deaths (39%) 35 Landings (41%) Total Attempts: 71 Prizes: Of the 209 total prizes for the event all but 38 were given out as rewards for various scheduled and games, as well as many improvised fish slapping events! The leftover prizes will of course roll over to next year to start the pool. There were a total of 239 entries into the Grand Prize pool for the made to order Custom 90q Drake suit... Ticket Summary: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Md3W1v1XL3n3DCWPCFQj4OKBhwVR80x2R0Yiej6ew7w/edit#gid=1049979390 Scooter won the suit with just a 1% chance! Look how happy he is! Now for some nice screenshots of the event! Lady Goldfinch enjoying a nice Mint and Oleander foot back after a hard days fish slapping! This is what happens when i leave deed for a bit apparently... Some Fish slapping fun! And on a bit of a sad note I have one attempted grand prize entry fraud to report... Does anyone actually think I don't check them lol? UPDATE: Officeboy apologized over the misunderstand and will read the rules in regards to entry and how to acquire tickets next time. All that said id just like to follow up with a huge thank you all again for your visitation, donations, and long hard work to help make this game a better place for everyone, particularly the new players. We had a whole bunch of new players this year! I look forward to seeing you all next year! don't forget to bring A Friend-A-Long and if you don't die at Friend-A-Long you did it wrong! - VirusMD

    Category: Wacky and wild Server: Xanadu (M10 Highway towards east from Hermit's Rest) So this is what happens when you want to connect to a road but there is mountain in your way... Smart move of course would have been to either make zigzag road up (but I wanted straight road) or tunnel through (but I had done so much tunneling already). So being not so smart I chose to surface cut my way. Also, this road goes from west to east, but I also incorporated the road going north-south above the mountain into this. A view entering the area from south Entering the area from east Looking towards west from the bridge Few numerical facts: from beginning of the road the highest point in the way was something of 1800-2000 dirt up, not completely sure as I did not record all of process at beginning. Right now from start of ramp to level of colossi and bridges is 1760 dirt height. Water is about 110 lower. (There is marked path of power tile in southeast of area, colossi and bridges are not quite high enough.) Ramp goes up 32 tile length, after that road to east runs further 80 tiles that needed to be surface mined. Parts going north and south are together about 80-90 tiles of serious terraforming. Numbers of tiles may not sound that much, but please remember when going more than 300 slope, means you need to change the tiles next too. And maybe tiles next to them as well, to get the needed slope over distance. Little edit: addition to highlight some of the scope of this as pictures and numbers don't convey it that easily. The 4 colossus and 4 bridges at the top of the area took me something like a week to craft, maybe less. This whole road-thingy...no clue, couple years or so, probably more, difficult to say as I think I started this around 2017, not sure, but took few several month breaks from the game and just finished the last decorations now. Just saying if you try to do similar thing, don't expect to finish it tomorrow - Nestangol (Mayor of Northwind Cove, owner of Hermit's Rest, Maker of West Hammer Lake Canals etc.)

    I would have expected a wardrobe to offer some extra protection for stored clothes, especially since it's a relatively high end item to make and can only hold specific item types. It's fun to keep a variety of clothing items to rotate between, and have some outfits to use for special occasions etc. but tedious when the clothes need regular maintenance despite sitting in a specialized storage container within a house on a deed. It would also be great to have a way to organize items in the wardrobe, eg. to keep together items belonging to favourite outfits for eg. impalongs, Halloween, Christmas, etc. In this sense a large chest is actually more useful than the wardrobe right now, since it can hold backpacks to sort items with, but the wardrobe doesn't allow this. So here are my suggestions to make wardrobes more useful: The wardrobe should reduce decay on the items inside when indoors on deed, offering better protection at higher quality. Add a way to sort items inside a wardrobe, either by adding shelves or the ability to make groups (like in the inventory).

    Allow us to heal players by activating a healing item (salve, cover, cotton, etc.) and right click on the player and selecting Heal. It can automatically start healing the must severe of the wounds and then will work down the list to the least severe wounds. Having to look at the players equipment, then expand to see all the wounds can take quite a bit of time in combat and this would be a faster and easier to use system.

    As someone who walked the shores of the first golden shore, its sad as hell to see what this game and community sank into in the years I have been gone. Now I understand why so many of the people I met here are making their own story on amazing WU servers better than any experience we ever had in the old WO. Yet the answers the showrunners seem to come to are always continue to half deliver and retreat to another avenue.. I'm so disappointed to see such a large part of my life that was WO turned into a cadaver.

    I want to publicly apologize to Hondimaaru. I called him a scammer yesterday in the game, while it was actually me, who (accidentally) scammed him. It was too hot here, my brain wasn't working properly, I was tired and stressed out. I didn't even notice (until much later) that I included mailing fees twice in the COD. My second mistake was that I thought he didn't actually accept my mail. He did. I'm still quite new to the game, no idea how to check pending mails and their status. After realizing my mistakes I told him to send me a wood scrap as COD, so I could repay him. So far, I haven't received his mail. I also want to apologize everyone in yesterday's Trade chat for all the unnecessary drama I caused. I wasn't thinking clearly. Anyway, my reputation is probably ruined now and (since making in game money was the only way for me to afford to pay for premium) the game is over for me. So long and thanks for all the fish.

    If you're still around, accidents happen. People have bad days, If you are that concerned about your reputation, just lay low for a bit and most people will forget it, we've all done silly things at one point or another. The game goes on. Give it another try and if you have issues with people in the future, you can address it then. There are lots of other people to trade with. Hope you stick around and give it another chance.

    I don't want the game to go the path of so many others in the past. I don't want to see the community slowly fizzle out and Wurm Online end up abandoned. This game has been around for so long and I want to see it continue since it's been so enjoyable for me in the past 5 years since I started playing. Others have played for a decade or more. There's so many lessons capable of being learned from other successful games out there with successful business models. I'd like to see Wurm Online adapt to the current gaming market, and others here are suggesting the same. At the end of the day, a forum is for discussion about topics. A topic was presented, and people are discussing it. I don't agree with everything others have said, but I'm not so vain as to call them self-serving because of their interpretation of the data. If you'd like to disagree with their interpretation, I think you should use counterpoints to the data or logic against their statements. You shouldn't attack the person who's presenting their viewpoint.

    Dear Devs, Can we please get an official update on what is looking at being fixed, and a timeline of possible patches to making anything better? The games lack of communication is only getting worse and the lack of transparency is only reassuring the players trust that you are not even remotely doing anything to get things fixed. During this time animals being bread are far from ok and only getting worse over time. Peat is spreading at a daily rate. Bugs are still causing issues. What are you planning on doing? Also don't just reply with a "were working on it" put it on the splash screen so we do not have to dig into a 10 page long forum post.. at least try to act like this is a real game from a real company update the player base on the plan, the fix, and the timeline. Still waiting on what Demona said we would get an official post..

    Sorry guys, that's on me I didn't even think about the anniversary being an event and didn't even remember when they launched the new servers and launcher. I thought it was later in the year. That's me and my scatterbrain though, I'm bad at holidays and birthdays IRL too, lol! Lemme see if I can get something going!

    Who out there has loads of useless rare slate/sandstone/round stone shards and bricks? I know I do! Who wouldn't want a rare slate forge or supreme marble oven? Please allow us to make slate, sandstone, round stone, pottery and marble forges and ovens, at least to start. This could be expanded further with more items in time and different texture forges and ovens would add many new decorating options. I believe this would be a great addition to the game and add some fun options for the community! Thank you for reading.

    When using a faith swap, currently you can only swap to another priest, however something that would be useful for priest mains that want to grind some skills for ease of life/creation would be instead of an instant swap, storing their faith in an activatable item, say for example a 100 faith vyn priest uses this, they then lose their priesthood and have a token that can be activated to choose a deity to become 100 faith of whenever they choose.

    I don't know if it's just me, but I've always thought it odd to have animals with saddles pulling carts, wagons etc. If you want the fastest speeds you need to have the full gear of shoes and saddles of the highest ql and ideally with WOA enchants. For a while now I've thought it would be a good idea to have harnesses instead of saddles for animals pulling vehicles. Something like this: It makes more sense than saddles! The harnesses would be made by leatherworkers, and would offer similar speed bonuses to saddles on hitched animals. WOA could of course be cast for an extra boost. It would be good if they could be applied to bison as well as horses and mules, giving them some useful gear at last.

    I joined Wurm on the 18th July and died on my first adventure out into exodus. Through that death I met Stinboi and Denully who sailed me to my very first impalong in a beautiful Knarr. Little did I know what I would get upto whilst my basic newly made tools were imped by some awesome people. I joined in arena fight, fish slapping contest, musical chairs jumped off a huge tower even though I have real life vertigo and had so much fun meeting and chatting to everyone. My gratitude can’t be expressed but the hard work put in by organisers and everyone involved is so much appreciated. Sadly my stay was cut short by a rl vacation starting on Saturday and I couldn’t stay until the end. I so wanted to stay. As I glided away from friendship bay in my own newly won Knarr I felt sad to leave all my new friends but have hope the next impalong won’t be too far into the future. Thank you for making a fabulous warm memory for me and I’ll see you all soon

    Something annoying me every day is the way how the order of items in my inventory is messed up every time I log in. I have a certain order I prefer, and re-sort every time. Even when I made a mistake and choose one of the sort columns in inventory, the order is rearranged and won't go back. I would like a default order of inventory items one may choose and store, and retrieve by right click commands below "Expand all, Collapse all, Toggle imp column", e.g. "Save current item order, Restore item arrangement", maybe also a "/ command".

    Hello fellow Harmonians! On a rare occasion when I do leave my forge my favourite thing besides Weaponsmiting is exploring to see what people have built. I see so many amazing projects this community has done and I thought that perhaps there is a way I can contribute. I made this bridge-building kit which allows you to make the maximum bridge length, a span of 38 tiles and of course subject that the planner has 99 skill in masonry. If you are making a long bridge that will benefit this community you are welcome to borrow it when you are at the planning stage. Please post here and I will be in touch with you to make arrangements. For reference on span length :

    Seeing as the AH update impacted pretty much the entire core gameplay since everyone uses animals, I'd say the need for transparency is at an all time high. Erroneous descriptions just add a sour flavour to the game. Coulda, woulda, shoulda. Also if the animal does "steal" food from your inventory similar to how a gnome used to steal things, then I'd argue it's a negative trait. What's the "output" logic here? What does it "create" so the output trait can have any meaning?

    I have just realised that the reason we were all misinterpreting "It is unbelievably fast: always on speed bonus similar to hell horses (Speed, Rare)" as being traits always on, rather than being what I now believe it to be (as above) , and it is another example of poor communication - "[00:00:08] <Demonanightshade> So, I went onto test. Recreated my exact horse gear on an identical horse to mine in game except with the new speed traits, made sure my inventory was the same weight, etc. In game I reached 35.29kmh on my horse. On test, with the speed traits there, got up to 42.49kmh, all flat ground, no slopes. That DOES include the rare speed trait, and even without that it reaches the same speed because the rare trait just makes it so all speed traits are always active (like hell horses.)" This certainly seems to indicate that there was no, or insufficient, communication between the Devs and one of the few people who did actually have access to testing before things went live. Posted into comments May 28th, presumably read by staff, but even then they didn't communicate that there was an error here, and I'm assuming they didn't even let Demona know that the trait had been misinterpreted as it would have then been corrected in the later clarification of traits that occurred. The trait does not make all speed traits always active, they vary just as normal horses, but the rare trait itself is always active, and gives a continuous speed boost. This explains why it then boosted further when in water, as only then did that trait kick in. Other traits are equally as vague, or downright not working - stationary isn't, they run around just as much as any other animal, have yet to see (or hear of a single person who has seen) animals digging items up when feeding, vibrant, slow metabolism and graceful eater are all pretty unclear in whether or not they are working, extremely sick is not a slim chance of killing an animal (except on any individual hunger tick) but rather an almost certain death within a couple of weeks. Animals showing as not hungry are starving to death, animals on enchanted grass are dropping dead, breeding timers don't work, breeding is a RNG lottery, vehicle quality is not affecting speeds as predicted. Communication? Completely and utterly missing. The patience is gone, players i know are giving up and quitting. A much anticipated update that has turned into not only an AH nerf, but a speed nerf to all. What a mess.

    Yes, I know it disbanded. Thanks for the messages. I let it go, because the upkeep is just too much for me to maintain at the moment. Oak Harbour proper is fine. Just busy with real life right now, dealing with health issues again. Thanks to the folks checking up on me. See you... Eventually!

    Why would we want to bring mechanics that was a huge contributing factor to the collapse of the defiance population. I mean it dropped from 500+ daily to what an average daily of 20 ppl just skilling on deed, 30 ppl at peak for the 10 minutes of pvp that server generates a week if your lucky???? No thank you! Why are you trying to remove content from paying customer around the world that are not in your time zone? Try recruiting ppl in overlapping time zones like every other kingdom in the history of wurm on chaos, wild, gold etc. Implement 5 consecutive drains to disband a deed, now that I can get behind!
