    So sad to hear you pass and hard to fathom. I loved to receive the occasional email with recent news about your recent Wurm endevours, thoughts about cancer treatments and learning stuff like the Budwig Protocol. You were always so loving, caring and kept my hopes high although I sensed your struggles. Thanks for all you've done for Wurm and the community. Rest in Peace, Janice.

    May you finally not have any more pain and ailments that troubled you for so long Eir! Eir was one of the two main GM's that taught me how to GM here in Wurm. Eir is a big and historical name here. I kept up with her situation regularly and kept in contact with her. When we learned what was happening, Shrimpiie was able to go visit her and give her well wishes from us just a couple days ago. This is very sad news. Thank you for informing us here Dizbot.

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but as Eir is a big part of wurm as a once GM and player of the game, I thought this might be the best place. . I am sorry to say that Eir's son has posted news that she has sadly passed away today. I'm sure there are still some old-timers around who have either spoken to or became friends with Janice during their time in wurm and would want to know of her passing. She was an amazing woman and a great GM in her time in wurm. She became a good friend to me outside of the game, and I will miss her very much. -Dizzybot

    The first thing she did when I walked into the hospital room a couple days ago and said I knew her through Wurm, was to give me a hug. I am glad to have met her when I had the chance, and wished I could've had the opportunity to get to know her better... Rest in Peace Eir

    a group of us were talking and think it would be fair if paper sheets didn't take damage inside a book/journal/almanac but instead the book takes the damage as that can be repaired/improved. of course if we let the book rot the pages are doomed as is also fair. would also be nice to have a useful bookshelf to more safely keep books in inside our homes. that could stop or at least slow the decay of the books. the reason for all this being that we can write a book, we can make all these nice new useful books, but we can't ever put them down or the pages rot right out of them a little safe-guarding and we'd be more able to place books as decorative items and class things up a little more TL;DR please stop the pages rotting right out of our books, that nice leather bound cover should do its job

    Hmm my favourite impalong?... For me, now, my favourite would have to be any that I don't run myself I can enjoy the banter, cause a little mischief and even get some of my own tools imped without feeling guilty of taking others time up. Yes the impalongs are quite different these days to my own, the perms.. buildings (multi story) were all things we couldnt even imagine having back then. But the one thing that I will always carry in my heart from the times I did host them, and being a guest at the ones in recent years is the fantastic community we have here. The hosts work tirelessly all year preparing for the event, gathering materials, building areas for the workers..they give up so much time for the feeling of helping others. I fully appreciate what it takes to commit to hosting and I applaud all of you that step up and welcome everyone through your doors. From the day the community arrive on that first morning, excitement and anticipation of the fun days ahead to the sad farewells on the very last day.. makes it all worthwhile. I have met some amazing people during my time hosting Impalongs and made some wonderful memories along the way. May the history of Impalongs continue for many years to come and I wish every single person who takes the job on, the best of times and enjoy them all!

    I'd love to see hedges changed so that when you are planting them, you have three options: plant low, plant medium and plant high. They'd still start out as low like they do now, but it would set the max height during the planting action. This way we could have low or medium flowering hedges like the rose, lavender, oleander and camellia; or even low cedar/maple if we wanted without having to constantly prune for the desired look. May be interesting to have a high lavender hedge as well I love how the new hedges look, but most don't fit with how my deed plan is designed. *edit* would also like to see the medium hedges raised to be in line with gates in height lol

    I don't get this "not everything has to be easy just earn it lol" fighting response. The devs force this on us as working with the community, which is exactly what has been attempted several times now and getting it sniped by others in the community. I prayed to get rite of spring done on independence, then I swapped faith to get rite of death done on independence. For the rite of death two of us even did 99% or more of the prayers required. All of my own accounts that will ever possibly get Benediction done has participated in a cast. Am I going to sit here smug faced trashing on other people that are putting in more effort than I did to organize something so the community as a whole can continually benefit? No, I'm going to use my experience to say that the current system is absolute trash and does not encourage the community working together and in fact actively prevents it.

    I had a blast hosting the one at my deed on exo, was amazing fun seeing all the efforts of my alliance come together and go so well. Plus from a personal perspective i really enjoyed another excuse to show off my deed. I hadn't attended an impalong since the days of MRH and JKH until hosting one myself so it was a hell of a learning experience. I wanted to make it a yearly event but i've just not had the time to arrange another been so busy irl. Someday maybe...

    The problem was leading 4 backup horses to a fight, which I agree is stupid and a problem. There is already a CR penalty for leading more than 1. Just for reference this is in CombatHandler.java This is the existing line of code if ((this.creature.isPlayer()) && (opponent.isPlayer())) { <snip> if ((Servers.localServer.PVPSERVER) && (this.creature.getNumberOfFollowers() > 1)) { combatRating -= 10.0F; } There are a ton of ways this could have been fixed in a better way, use the same code above and give them a -50% damage modifier, make it a 50% CR penalty. Or have a hard check and prevent the player doing any damage. "You fail to swing as you are leading too many animals". Limiting leading to 1animal breaks a bunch of stuff, Collecting horses for taming, having to move tames around 1 at a time, you can no longer have a pet and a backup horse in pvp its just all round a huge pain to deal with, All because a small problem was fixed in a very lazy way. its these lazy fixes over and over which has gradually degraded the game over time, please start fixing things the right way instead of these instant lazy fixes that cause more harm than good.

    Player gods suck and should have never been added. Horde of the Summoned is full of heretics that have forsaken Glorious Libila to instead worship whitelight pretender gods that are just player accounts that get passed around more than your mom. Retro remove them or I will remove your pee-pee.

    Hello everyone! We are aware that not everyone was happy about our recent design change. We were working on improving our kingdom design, but this time we don't want to unexpectedly upload it, we wanted to ask your opinion about it first. We made some major changes to the wagon and tent design but the banners and flag were also changed a little bit. Here's what we came up with: Current design for comparison: Please vote on the poll above if you would like us to change the design, or just leave it as it is. I also wanted to use this opportunity to inform you that there are some wagons and banners on the market which were stolen from us. And no, not stolen in a raid or a pvp battle - that would be fair game. They were made by a person from the enemy kingdom, abusing an alt account. I've met a lot of people that were happy they can support Wurm University in our battles on Chaos, so I think if you want to buy a wagon, you should at least know where your money is going. Because of that, I just want to inform everyone that all the wagons made by a character "Btgringo" or any character other than Aesir are not made by us. Also we don't sell anything on the freedom Trade chat. If you want to support Wurm University, visit our official merchant thread: https://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/159835-wts-wurm-university-pmk-wagons-tents-flags-banners/ All the PMK gear made by us is not made for personal gain, the money is used to support our kingdom. Thanks for your consideration.

    I'd like to see forges and ovens have no tool or cast iron pots/pans on them, by default. I like placing stuff on them and it doesn't look so good when they overlap. I'd like to place my supreme frying pan on the oven without it glitching over the default one embedded in the oven model. Remove them! Let us do the decorating!

    Because what you want just gives the players more fuel to hate on each other with. The comunity doesnt need more division plenty already exists and things like this goal show a disconnect with reality.

    Such sad news - again I first met Eir/Qualia many years ago and will always remember the conversation being like this..."Would you like to see a picture of my baby, he sleeps on the shelf" Now I'm never one to judge but dear me.. those first impressions stick! I had the vision of some swaddled little baby son, lay on a shelf with a baby blanket over him. So.. I look at the picture and yikes! There he was in all his glory...Retro the Iguana! Years on Eir would share her daily events of life with Retro. She was a lovely lady and I feel honoured to have been included in her circle of friends. We had some good fun along the way hunny... RIP you fought all the way.

    QoL Improvements Wurm is a great game but there have been so many things which have been bothering my players or even myself for a long time. Some of these changes are really needed for at least 11 years and most of them are super simple to implement. Deed disband warning on login if one of your alts has a deed and is running low on upkeep. When a fireplace of any kind (oven, forge, campfire,...) is going low on fuel, a warning will be displayed. The help command to call guards should work in all chats and broadcast to local chat automatically. Make items always death protected on PVE servers for at least the first 24 hours of ingame time. Let us equip and unequip horse gear when leading a horse. Make the regeneration of stamina possible on vehicles on any slope at least on PVE. Add a teleport home action which lets new players teleport to all their spawn locations in the first 24 hours. (With a cooldown ofc) Broadcast rough location (eg. in the NW) for abandoned deeds when they are disbanded by upkeep. Looting is fun and could be a nice scavenger hunt thing. Make catseyes easier to create or let us create more than one per creation action. The highway system is still not spread over the whole networks. Make deed info a more readable font for certain sections. Ever tried to read a mayor name without copy paste? Add a support ticket alert for staff members and in the MGMT chat to decrease the answer times. Add an alert for players when their support ticket is updated has been added. The command /alts could show your own alts on the IP and or Email including the last login date. (Cross server support) Backpacks should fit into ovens again. Mailing should be made free in every case. Add bulk sorting like we have it on Wurm Unlimited. It makes life so much easier. Add a new player broadcast to welcome new players. There should be an alert for new questions in CA Help for staff players. The quality of beds should matter for sleep bonus, at 100QL the bed will grant 50% more sleep bonus. The rarity of beds should matter for sleep bonus, each rarity step adds 10% bonus.

    As someone who also still has a reasonably *active* character on Golden Valley, I can say that atazs largely has it right in that post. The very first paragraph, though, is no longer accurate with the introduction of Haven's Landing on Independance as the point where a brand new character first enters the game. Originally, Golden Valley had the tutorial area around New Dawn (all deeds were staff-created as players at that time couldn't create their own) with easy steps a brand new player could learn the game from by cutting some trees, sawing some planks and cutting some shafts, and creating a mallet by following the directions. I believe it also included learning mining and metalwork at a mine with an iron vein and forges nearby just off the E-W highway at New Dawn. That highway was called 'Amnesty Road' and connected the three starter towns of Glitterdale, New Dawn, and First Light. It wasn't "a fenced area with no way of getting out", there was just the fence around the forested timbercutting part of the casual tutorial with an opening to get out to explore the rest of Golden Valley and learn at the blacksmithing part or visit the merchant to buy tools to give you a bit of a head start. In those days, only premium characters could portal off Golden Valley into Independance (PvE) or Wild (PvP), so Golden Valley was exclusively the place for those who'd not signed up for Premium and the great staffers that hung around to offer their assistance to those new players (and others who'd remained). The walled-in fenced tutorials came after the main body of Golden Valley was closed off to new players, starting with 'Kings Academy' (the one with just signs you walked through till finally reaching the portal to the Freedom Isles or Wild/Chaos). When the change came (many years ago, about 10 years by now) that allowed non-premium into Independance server, players on GV were given the chance to pass through portals taking what they could in their inventory to join the premium players on Freedom (Independance) or PvP on Wild (currently known as Chaos and now linked to the Freedom Isles instead of existing seperately). At the time, Independance was the only PvE server in the 'full game' and new players spawned in the Howl after going through the walled-off new tutorial on GV known as Kings Academy. Rolf generously stated that those players who wished to remain on GV as sorts of exiles would be allowed to, though no longer actively supported. That's why there are still some characters existing on Golden Valley. A lonely existence as wilderness hermits limited to having 20 as the max skill and characteristic level and forced to effectively be non-premium, for sure. Some players there in the past sold off these legacy characters for silvers in the forum for a few years afterwards for a profit. Not something I'd encourage now, though, with the time that's passed and changes that could be expected. Anyways, by doing a Google search you can find some of the old Golden Valley maps on unofficial sites. 'Golden Valley map', etc. These all used to be in the Wurmpedia but were removed a few years past. PC Gamer magazine, which in those years past used to actively cover Wurm Online, had its own active village settlement on GV. With the transfer to Independance, they left the old one behind and started anew on Independance on the east coast of Colossus Lake (called PCG Freedom Village ). As for the logic behind closing off the old Golden Valley and the reasons behind it, Code Club's posted explanations in the forum dating to the time of the event. I'd not expect any return to the way it was on GV, for the reasons they've stated, but I can say for myself as one who's been active since first spawning there, it was a strong part of what drew me to Wurm Online as a player.
