    1kg sand to glowing = glass "attach"1 jar water "attach" 1 reed seed = FishBowl new fish: Gold fish depths under 50 You see a sunset gold fish with a small but lavish fan tail.

    I too I think the size is fine. If the special versions also had some noticable design differance besides scale that would make it look a bit better. A good idea might be making them more stocky or have extra big canine teeth and claws. but the single most imprtant thing ever is that I shuld ride ON TOP of my champ bear and not IN it.

    Gnomes Mined Heritage Tunnel The reality of who actually mined out Pingpong's Folly, a huge tunnel to the north sea has finally come to light. For years Pingpong claimed it was him along with a "few helpers" who picked away at the rock all that time. Today, the Wunion has learned who these "helpers" really were. Going on a rumour overheard at the Large Rat Inn, the Wunion team headed out to investigate. Here's what they discovered. Many moon ago, an anonymous traveler, hopelessly lost somewhere in the northern region of Independence was riding along what he thought was a main road. Suddenly, to his shock and awe, he witnessed a group of miniature beings walking into what is now known as "Pingpong's Folly". While hiding behind a tree...he scrambled for his backpack and pulled out a piece of papyrus and some dyes, then quickly sketched a drawing of what he saw. We at the Wunion have hunted down that traveler and purchased the drawing for you to view. The Wunion would now like to put to rest any myths that may be involved in regard to the Garden Gnomes. They are in fact Pingpongs mining army. Edit: pic went missing, re-upped it

    The Truth About Dragon Fang Mountain Recently an expedition of three unnamed persons set out to climb to the top of Dragon Fang mountain. (The highest peak on the Independence server). Their goal, reach the top and plant a sign up there for all passersby to see. At first their trek was an easy one, deciding to ascend the NW facing. They followed the path blazed by many a Wurmian. Then it happened. Once their journey took them passed the first ring, they noticed something just wasn't right. A foul odour unknown to them began to permeate the air. Their climbing gear was becoming increasingly less effective. The consistency of the statuesque mountain seemed to be changing ever so slightly. One of the three in the party had had enough and turned around and headed for home. The other two however, trudged on. Soon, the couple found their footwear was hampering the climb... so off came the boots. Their bare feet seemed to mold directly into Dragon Fang with each step. This went on for metre after metre until one of the two remaining two climbers panicked and decided he couldn't take it anymore, and began his descent. As the last anonymous climber slowly continued despite the fog, he could barely make out the peak of DF not too far in the distance. With great determination our hero trudged to the top. What was this he saw? A sign out of no where appeared between waves of fog. A sign that read, "Eladia's discarded cheese pile".

    Isn't it time to re-think the champion model sizes for real-world creatures? We are getting some really nice, realistic creature models, but I will be honest, the whole 3x size thing on the champ models is just counter productive to the realism effect gained from the new models. Champ models can still be a little bigger, but it's silly to see a champ deer standing next to a horse, or a a champ dog next to a cow. A champ bear is the size of a house! I can understand keeping champ sizes for trolls, and other fantasy creatures, but the real ones should be somewhat reasonable. In fact, I think spiders should be reduced down to maybe something in the neighborhood of a cave bug with champ spiders maybe as big as dogs. My point is, the new models look very realistic, but the champ sizes on real-life models negates the realistic effects somewhat. Discuss.

    Realistic looking models doesn't mean its a realistic game. We still have unicorns, trolls, dragons, huge spiders, magic, gods, etc., things that all doesn't exist in the real world. Unless you want all those things removed, your suggestion is quite silly.

    No no and no. I like being able to see a Champ Troll from far enough away that I can avoid it. I see no problem with GIANTS. It is a fantasy game you know.

    Blackout in Freedom Market Yesterdays blackout in Freedom Market was not only a huge surprise to everyone, but it has also caused some undue panic for a few of the merchants working there. Today, several of the more distraught sellers of goods refused to show up for work, thinking the apocolypse was once again upon us. We'd like to wish them well, and pray to Vynora that they'll be back on the job soon. The cause of the unscheduled FM disband is still under investigation and will be for some time. So far it's been discovered the highly beloved Enki disbanded FM so he could use the recouped cash to place a wager. Seems the FM mayor has a bit of a gambling bug and enjoys betting on the highly brutal and completely illegal Champ dog fights currently being held in the more seedier parts of Celebration. Luckily for Enki, he won his bet, then refounded Freedom Market to it's former glory before too much damage set in, much to the delight of the volunteers who've been working to repair FM recently. Spirit Templers are still on the scene and questioning the mayor to figure out all the finer details of what occurred yesterday.

    Most of the people I'd like to thank are those who I call the silent majority. We're here in force, but you'd hardly know it because we tend to go about our business without fanfare. Most have been around for 2 years or more, but have 200+ days played, so we're a bit more than 'casual' players. My thanks to 2 real life friends who tried to entice my husband and I to try out Wurm for a full year. We were still enamored with WoW so we resisted until the day we could no longer attain what we wanted without a party of 20 others. We let our friends know that we were registering for Wurm and would let them know when we finished the tutorial. They began their journey from the Western Wall on horseback while my husband and I walked through the tutorial. We waited for them at The Howl, they invited us to their village and promptly told us to kill ourselves. Welcome to Wurm! More thanks that can fit into a Huge Tub has to go to my husband. He patiently sits beside me while I try to master Wurm stuff. I can't tell you how long it took in the beginning to 'understand' digging. I'd finally get one tile flat, then when I went to the next, I'd make the first one not flat. His poor ears rang for days until I had that AHA moment. Months later, he redid the entrance to our surface mine (digging down a 282 dirt ramp) because I was unhappy that the current mine entrance was 6 slopes off. Thanks to a very special appreciative newbie (at the time) who moved into our area and was considerate enough to ask if he was in the way before building his shack. He was a do it yourself kind of person, but we were there to help with advice, answers and all those things that would just frustrate the heck out of new people until their skills were decent. That very special newbie gifted me much later with his referral. It was awesome to see a referral used as I believe was originally intended. My thanks to a neighbor, who goes beyond normal terraforming on his deed and inspires us to go beyond our limits to make our area something to look at, not just a place to sleep. My thanks to Rolf, for not making this game too easy. Other games we have played eventually got 'dumbed' down and our interest waned. Thank you to those who offer advice and pass on their knowledge in chat. Many days you have to really search to find that wisdom between the trolling and the event copy and pastes, but it's there and those people deserve my thanks. Thanks to all who understand that Wurm is not perfect and probably never will be, but help support the game and enjoy the parts that are good. Because most are part of the silent majority, I'll not associate names with events, but nonetheless, my thanks go to: Trystant, Charm, Aleif, Ruriko, Kodos, Sandle, Snoopy, Zenity. My thanks for inspiration go to: Smejack, Eladia, Willow, Zuperman, Thorgot, Zivirt, Brash_Endeavors My thanks to all the Silent Majority whom I have run into and have had a kind word or an appreciative gesture with no thought of personal gain. Thank you!

    Sounds like it's working as designed. Take care when dropping items to inspect the ground first and make sure that you're not in someone's deed.

    Looking great. I am so relieved to see that Wurm is not becoming another of all these cartoony MMOs out there.

    I think this is a great start, however you need to be careful to not go ott, and also make sure that the boat can sway in different directions too. You could link the severity of movement to wind speed... And lastly, make sure it doesn't move when on land! If this is refined more an applied to all boats.. It could be epic at making them a lot more life like!!!
