Hello again everyone! I'm here to Officially announce the Second Annual 2019 Summer Friend-A-Long, Brought to you by Dragon Beard Markets, Academy Network Alliance of Pristine, and random donaters like you out there! This years Event will be held July 22-27/28th. Hopefully this window will allow most folks the chance to attend and join in and the foolery of it all. Some of you may be asking what is an Imp-along? Well basically is a community event where everyone gets together to imp and cast for other folks for free! Anyone can come, anyone can help imp. The only real restrictions is on channeling skill. We have already built a dedicated deed for the event, collected a massive amount of materials, cotton, body bags, booze and cake (maybe cake) for the event! . There will be some minor changes made to the setup based on feedback received, and a few things added. I destroyed a mountain so you could all put your tents closer this year... cause you will need them. I always say if you didn't die at the imp-along you did it wrong, so don't fail me now. Please keep and eye on this thread as i will be updating it regularly with details of events, changes, whatever....
The event is now over, any items leftover in containers will be sent home with 24 hours to the name on them
All room settings will be cleared at the end of the month.

You can also plot to Friendship Bay from the highway network nearly anywhere on pristine.
What to bring: Anything you want Imped, Casted, bloods mixed, your imbues applied, Mendings, etc, if it can be improved we can prob handle it here.
What is expected of you as a patron:
Be polite and be respectful
Don't forget to put your characters NAME ON ALL YOUR ITEMS! Cant stress this enough. Anything not properly named is likely to be lost or stuffed in an overflow bin, and once moved with no name, there is basically no way to identify it as yours. Please try and remove your items promptly once imped/casted to avoid having your items secured in overflow. You do NOT need to label them with what cast/imp you want, just your name. Just make sure you place them in the correct container.
Do NOT abuse people's generosity! Don't bring 10 or even 5 of the same item for imping/casting. The only real exception to this might be horse shoes. Anyone caught taking advantage will forfeit there items and be asked to leave. And the veteran impers do know what to look for, i removed almost 100 items last year due to abuse, and it was veterans who tipped me off.
Do NOT sell items that were done for you at the impalong. Its about helping people out, not taking advantage of someone else's work to put coin in your pocket.
Getting items casted is at your own risk! Thoe the priest will be required to have at least 70 channeling and demonstrate so with there 70+ title. Shatters can and will happen at an event like this. Item quality plays a big in this so if your going to get something casted, consider imping it first. If an item is shattered, and its reproducible on site, feel free to ask someone with skill to re craft it for you.
You should not need to pick any items up that are not your (nor will you be able to inside a building) If your items are moved to overflow please contact a "Wurm Lord" Items are only returned to the character named on it!
Also feel free to help imp items even if you don't have that skill to 70. The only real restriction is channeling. Everyone is welcome to help out! Consider this an opportunity to grind your skills and no expense to you other then time. Mats and favor are provided so go crazy imp or cast all the things!
When you complete and imp or cast please call it out in local to the owner something like "/me VirusMD your pickaxe imp is done!" This should help keep things flowing particularly for items waiting to receive multiple casts.
All materials provided will be stocked in the resource carts next to each station, the general public will not have access to the bulk of materials, please try to NOT COMBINE tiny lumps like silver, gold, electrum, and the like for imping larger items like weapons and shields. Material usage will be alot higher, and we will get alot less imps out of the total stock of that material, less used is more for everyone! if you need a refill on something please ask in local or a "Wurm Lord" for refill.
Getting YOUR items imped:
As mentioned before be sure ALL your items are correctly named with your character. Find the station relavent to the skill required for your equipment. for example Hammers in Blacksmithing, Swords in Weapon smithing etc. Most are pretty obvious. Some of the most commonly misplaced items are:
Carving Knife, Sickle, and Scythe witch are actually Weapon smithing.
(Cooking) Knife and Leather Knife are actually Blacksmithing.
New fishing rods are Fine carpentry, and the legacy rods are Carpentry
Fishing Reels are Jewelry Smithing, with the exception of the deep water reel witch is Blacksmithing
What is expected as an Imper or Caster at the Friend-A-Long:
All of the above +
Please name your lumps/materials if you have to put them back in the forge etc
70+ in your imping skills of choice is recommended but feel free to chip in with whatever skills you have for imping.
70+ Channeling skill is required to be permitted to cast on other people's items. You should be sure to wear your 70+ channeling title
Sermons are volunteer led, if you wish to participate in the sermon group please ask for a sermon team invite in local, and get further information for slotting inside that channel.
What we still need:
Still taking last minute room reservations, and please do sign up for the events your interested in below, there is still work to be done once i know who is participating when etc. But mainly its down to prizes prizes prizes! Anything you think might make a decent reward. Ships, rares, Kingdom Flags, Hota's Arch statues, etc.... anything you think might be a good prize. Donations are recorded and accredited here on the thread and announced when given away in case you want to make a donation for a service thread etc. If you can attend are want to work some skills specifically please post, and let me know what your willing to do, so we can get a general idea what we have covered.
Friendship Inn and Lounge:
Need a place to sleep off a hard days work? Hide from a GM (good luck), or just get out of the way? The Friendship inn and Lounge, has a pleasant little relaxation area on the room with a wide variety of booze for you discerning wurmian hooligans. The inn is capable of bedding 80 characters in 70 secure rooms with storage options. If you need a secure room for your stay please make a post requesting a room, be sure to include your character(s) names in the post. There is also a large piece of land set aside for "Tent City" Just outside the inn on the sandy beach area next to the docking (parking) slips on the East end of the event location.
Room Numbers and Assignment:
*PLEASE CHECK ROSTER FOR ROOM ASSIGNMENTS, SOME CHANGES WERE MADE*
The imping hall itself it a 5 floor pottery building with slate/marble decor. with 3 floors dedicated to various tasks. The First floor is the Smithing area, with 24x forges nestled together in a large group in the center, in the corners you will find some relaxing area's to afk/get out of the way in along with stairwells to the other floors. The second floor is for Non smithing related imps, broken into 4 main area's depending on the skill used. The 3rd floor is the Casting/sermon floor. I've broken all the spells into 4 main groups, based on the spell/priests that cast it. each group has at least 2-4 dedicated altars PER priest for that category, the more common priest like vyn/nahjo have at least 15 altars each on that floor, so no worries about tripping over each other at the altar! All organized into corners, In the center of it all is another ring of altars, surrounding a rare altar for the sermon goers, and the building is designed in such a way, that everyone below you should be counted as listeners for HUGE faith ticks! At this time we have about 3 Million Favor worth of veggies ready to go! Want to help chop? no? good we don't need you, because@ChampagneDragonis amazing and did ALL the prep work for the veggies for us! Apparently he likes doing this, so yah, amazing! He also does it for your precious silvers, so if you need stuff chopped look no further.
The WEST end of the deed is where docks are located for people who would like there ships imped as well. Please do not park here if your ship is over 70q, and Please move your ship once it has been imped help keep congestion down in the area for the impers.
The EAST end of the deed houses several new docking teirs that will house many ships, if your ship does not need to be impled please be sure to park on the EAST side of the deed, where "Tent City" is located just East of the Friendship Inn and Lounge.
We have a large supply of source salt for potion making, so feel free to bring your bloods for mixing. Hopefully well get a couple high skill volunteers who can do them for us! Got a nice NS? drop me a line here or PM me if your willing to help out.
