  1. I see no inherent nobility in being an individual who prefers to do things with others, which you are exalting here by giving them preferential treatment in return for their social co-operation, as already they are benefiting from this by the ability to accomplish more and the satisfaction that they get by this social interaction. "People needing people" is not actually enjoyable at all for those people who prefer to be more self sufficient. Perhaps these people who prefer to accomplish things on their own without any dependence upon others are actually more together within themselves than these social ones who have some "need" to interact with others to find similar satisfaction. So here with this post you make *alts* the target when in reality you seem to want to punish the individual who prefers to do things alone by either removing alt assistance or giving some sort of preferential benefits to social groups and activities. This just seems unfair and controlling to me in that you seem to believe that socially active people are the preferred playstyle as a reflection of your and societies way of life. People are different and should be who they are, be they loving to do things with others or preferring to mainly do things on their own; thus, the game of Wurm Online provides all with their own choice of gameplay depending upon ultimately their own personality. Fortunately this game offers more freedom of choice than RL where societies dictates either subtly encourage pursuing common goals and interaction with others or blatantly enforce it with their confining rules and punishments. The "loner" types are then looked down upon or with suspicion by those social types who simply can not comprehend why anyone doesn't think as they do about the delights of interpersonal interactions. I don't think that the game was specifically planned out to give each individual the choice as to how they prefer to play it but this is the way that it has turned out and my preference is that it remain that way with acceptance of these diverse styles of playing it and ultimately allowing people to be who they are without the judgement and needs of others interfering with it. If alts are abused in some certain instances then those should be dealt with and alts remain as useful for other "less sociable" purposes. Mainly I see no problem with them and feel at ease about letting others play the game as they wish as far as social interactions are concerned. =Ayes=
  2. ....wander off in the direction of the Blue Traveler's home knowing that they would be here fighting all the troll respawns. =Ayes=
  3. I hope they will be *smart* too, then we will have Wise Quackers! Don't try to ride them though because they will break easily and leave crumbs on the ground. =Ayes=
  4. The *myth* is that those greenish Worg's can be tamed, as was told long ago in Viking lore. If we could do so then we might assemble a *pack* of them to fight all this recent increase of monster Troll spawns. =Ayes=
  5. Yeah, I was mining a Bit of gold (ore) back then but I used it and didn't sell any for coins. Never did see any balloons or warchests either. =Ayes=
  6. I have a couple of Twigs on Ayes I bought years ago. One I keep updated/set to a tree on deed just in case I might get stuck somewhere due to a bug. Also could be exploring some long mines and exiting a locked mine door onto someone's deed; thus being locked on their deed if no one is around. Mainly a self sufficient option not needing to contact anyone else for help in some unusual situation. Probably wouldn't buy any these days due to the karma option to recall home instead if necessary. =Ayes=
  7. Yes to starving animals *immediately* becoming unhitched when they reach the *starving* stage because then these seemingly abandoned vehicles can be pushed out of the way. This is more the main benefit I see to making this change. =Ayes=
  8. Soon after there was much squabbling over who could claim the body to take home, preserve and make a statue trophy out of it! =Ayes=
  9. The Heavy Metal "band" was so rubbery that they decided to make a catapult out of it. It would tone down the music too... =Ayes=
  10. A great topic which brings to mind so many of the "best" changes/additions made to the game over the years. Overall I have always viewed the game as progressing in a positive manner. A few not listed: Level Mine Floors/Ceilings at 90+ Skill: Finally! no more unavoidable dips and bumps in mine floors and ceilings when a new wall is mined out. A great reward for reaching this skill *level*. Reinforced and Paving Mine Floors: Another great addition to add more pleasing designs to mine floors and protect them from newbie digging damage as when completed they can't be removed without the proper tool. Concrete: Although a very tedious and excessive mat creation process, the end result is that at last moderate mine floor bumps could be leveled out. Care For Horses: Our favorite horses lives could be protected against death almost forever. Of course always the "hitch" is that they could be killed in combat while ridden if the mobs switched to them as target. It happened quite frequently when this change was made years ago but thankfully it was toned way down over the years and now rarely happens. Looking back over the years all these new improvements have made the game more enjoyable for everyone and I would expect more of the same in the years to come. Happy Trails =Ayes=
  11. the "Prince" invited them all along to join the song... =Ayes=
  12. The haze was purple and Jimi" Hendrix wrote a song about it long before this time as a prophesy of the event. =Ayes=
  13. We quickly built a bell tower, which was the inspiration for another story, "For whom the bell Trolls". =Ayes=
  14. Since you will not be having enchants on your weapons for some time, I would say that it would be best to mitigate the damage that you take buy using a shield and some 1 handed weapon. 1 handed weapons are generally faster and miss less than 2 handed as well, especially at lower skill. You may take longer to kill mobs but in the end you will die less with better protection from the shield. I now prefer a longsword and shield and no longer use my 2 handed weapons but of course mine are enchanted for healing and better skill gains. If guard towers are near just call the guards and let them get aggro while you stay back. Then you can attack and still gain skill at a slower rate because of sharing the killing with them. You can shield bash too for gains then. =Ayes=
  15. You certainly documented your start within these Wurm lands very specifically in detail for posterity within your website journal. Excellent! All I have are vague memories of running up hillsides and tumbling down due to lack of stamina, which was quite a frustrating surprise to me since within Active Worlds I could fly around everywhere while doing building tasks. Then too I remembering discovering a small wooden house hidden in the woods at the end of some cobbled path, which filled me with wonderment of what more there might be to discover. =Ayes=
