    We will be taking all servers down on Wednesday, April 1 2020 in preparation for migrating Celebration to AWS! This isn't an April Fool's joke, though any downtime outside of what we expect can be blamed on the day for sure. The schedule of events: Tuesday, March 31: - Stand up the infrastructure for Celebration and prepare it to take the server data. Wednesday, April 1: - Offline all servers around noon UTC (8am Eastern US). - Update all servers with Celebration's new connection information. - Dump all of Celebration's data and upload to new server. - Restore data onto Celebration's new hardware. - Set up AWS-related configurations for Celebration. - Online all servers! I've decided to keep all servers down for the migration as it shouldn't take more than an hour of downtime, though I will call it 1 to 2 hours for safety. If it lasts longer than an hour then we can make the call to bring all other servers online, though keep in mind that mail and travel to Celebration while it is offline is unadvised. A reminder that we may have growing pains with this change. We've been very careful in our decisions around what resources to allocate for servers, but we've yet to have a solid player load on an AWS host. I also can't stress enough that while this uplift has many benefits for us, it cannot fix issues in the code that can cause lag. We'll need to address reports of lag carefully to see if it's something we can fix with a code change or something that needs to be fixed with configuration or resources. Here we go!

    Here we are again, and its almost that time of the year again for the annual Summer Friend-A-Long! This event is brought to you by Dragon Beard Markets, the Academy Network Alliance of Pristine, and random donors like you out there! This years Event will be held July 24th to the 29th. 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 each other for free! Anyone can come, anyone can help imp. Often people just come to grind there skill for free. You don't have to be able to get to 70q imps, just do what you can and someone else will finish up the work! The only real restrictions is on channeling skill to help prevent shattered items. Made some changes to the deed based on feedback. Build a whole new arena that is designed around accommodating val and jackal mobs. We have collected a massive amount of materials, cotton, body bags, booze and prizes. I hope to see you all at turn up for the fun and games this year! Were going to commemorate the new arena with something special this year.... As I always say, If you didn't die at the imp-along you did it wrong! Please keep and eye on this thread as i will be updating it regularly with details of events, changes, whatever.... When: July 24th- 29th 2020 Where: Pristine, T16, Friendship Bay deed. Map: https://prnt.sc/jdif1w - In game Map location. Map: https://prnt.sc/jdifka You can also plot to Friendship Bay from the highway network nearly anywhere on pristine. Imping Materials: 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 to bring: Anything you want Imped, Casted, unique bloods mixed, imbues applied, Items needing 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. Please check on your items frequently when possible to avoid having them moved into overflow storage. 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: 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: Mainly its down to prizes prizes prizes! Anything you think might make a good prize. Ships, rares, Kingdom Flags, Hota's Arch statues, Sleep Powder, Skins, etc.... You get the idea. 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 your interested in coming PLEASE make a post listing the skills your interested in working, and if you need a room be sure to include your character(s) names. 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. The Deed: The imping hall itself it a 5 floor (3 double floors) pottery building with slate/marble decor. Brokenn into 3 floors dedicated to various tasks. The First floor is the now the casting/sermon area, 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 Vynora/Fo. 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!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 is now the forge area based on feedback from previous years. Mainly smoke in the face of folks working on the second floor, the forge area is 24x forges nestled together in a large group in the center At this time we have about 1.1 Million Favor worth of veggies ready to go! Want to help chop? no? good! we don't need you!, because@ChampagneDragonis amazing and did nearly ALL the chopping, with some support from Ladygodiva! Apparently she likes doing this, so yah, amazing! Champagnedragon also does it for your precious silvers, so if you need stuff chopped look no further, or cordage now as well look no further then a PM to her! Great attitude, very fast, great rates. Ship Imps: 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. Ship Parking: 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. Blood Mixing: 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.

    I just started as a noob and finished the tutorial. Now I'm exploring the area, Ist fantastic. Seeing the fishes in the harbor waters makes me want to start fishing asap. I wish there would be a tutorial for pottery and tailoring, too. There's a tutorial for fishing but, as it seems, it's veeeery complicated to get a net, pole rod or whatever you need for fishing. At the moment I want to make a quiver and some arrows to Train archery. So you need clay for a pottery flask, don't you? But where to find clay? I started to search in the harbour region and... no, no clay, but got killed twice by a crocodile and some other beast. Sure, the weapon is trash but I lost with the beasts nearly unharmed because the tutorial gives no hints about fighting or hunting. Couldn't there be some easier Monsters first with some hints how to fight? So you get the general idea. The tutorial covers digging, woodcutting, crafting ( the very basics, that is) mining, smelting and smithing. That's it. That's ok for me because I can learn lots of things with the wurmpedia but some more training areas would be nice. And maybe a big map of Heaven's Landing in the center of the starting area. Saves you from getting lost. Remember, we are all noobs here with no idea how the game works when we start.

    I'm enjoying my time on Valoria so far. The skill gain is super fast for me since I usually play on 1x or 2x servers, but since deeds/upkeep are vanilla there is still some challenge Community is very active and friendly. They do have the ability to see undiscovered ore on Livemap blocked which I am not a fan of, especially on "all public mods are okay" server. But, that only affects people like me who really do not like mining/prospecting and avoid going underground. Otherwise the admins have a very nice selection of QOL mods. I just love being able to forage, chop trees, etc from my cart The map is perfect for me with lots of lakes, gorgeous mountains and land variety. The forests are not in huge blobs like so many other maps and the tree types are mixed which I prefer. Clay does not seem abundant but is out there if you explore. Come check the server out if you are looking for a fresh start without a slog of a grind to get up and running!

    An occasional cactus would add some interest to otherwise boring desert. The cactus could have a kill zone like the oak and willow trees so that they do not crowd one another. They should spawn only on (and planting should be restricted to) sand tiles not near water. Sand tiles near water (and only near water) would be a good place to find palm trees.

    Bump, its beyond absurd that these things are everywhere and claiming land you're stuck with it on a deed unable to bash, move, rename or anything.

    Hi! I think the last little detail needed in order to make third person the best it can be is to give us the ability to holster the weapons we have in hand (or shield / bow / etc) 2h weapons can go on the back, 1 handers on the side and shields can go either on the back or not be able to be holstered at all. Then we don't have to walk around with our weapons drawn all the time!

    If anything needs changed on the small cart, it's to allow us to load 1x small crate (I suggested the same for the row boat). Leave it alone other wise, I still use mine from 8 years ago lol

    As some of you might have seen, Retro announced the steam page last night/today and revealed that I had been making some screenshots for that purpose. To make my task easier, Retro and Samool helped get me set up with the tools I need to be able to make them, and so over the past couple of weeks I have been traveling around the various servers admiring your guys amazing creations and taking screenshots of the ones that felt especially picturesque. Retro already revealed some of them in the Steam page, but I thought y'all would be interested in seeing the rest of the final ones I came up with, together with what was the name of the deed and what server it was on. Below, are just a few samples. There were 41 in total. Here are a few samples, but if you want to check out all the rest, you can do so from this link: https://www.andrea.net/wurm_shots_fixes/forum/

    If the only reason you're imping a hammer is to sell it, I question your priorities. Playing a game, and all the things you do while playing that game, should have a motivation beyond profit. Even if you were getting a silver for it is 30 minutes of your life worth a dollar? If all you want is silver than you're always going to be able to invest the time and effort more effectively by performing actions in real life and buying silver from the shop. Be it working an hour at your job, mowing a lawn, collecting soda cans, or begging for change, you'll still come out ahead. Choosing to be a master smith should be done because you enjoy smithing, want to continue to improve your skill, and like to provide high quality tools to your friends and peers. Whatever coin you get out of it is really just a bonus and a token to provide some sense of accomplishment.
