  1. Another Release type server

    @Elisha much of what you said i can see your point as valid and tend to agree. sometimes the problems are a bit more multilayered complex. I like your posts in general so no need to defend, you're often on point..as a community we've played a while and have strong views about it and have always allowed for the differences and dissent while maintaining agreeable...most times..sometimes that fails miserably. It would be nice for new players to have some buffer time in some way without being influxed by vets and the superior goods on the market. Market is diluted for several reasons..rare spam never should have been a thing, there are not enough buyers for sellers, and too many top end toons due to being able to recycle them, ie buy and sell them, to which I myself am guilty.. i see it as a problem as much as i saw use of personal traders as a problem. lastly you are right in my field of work in urban planning we call it Nimby'ism, not in my back yard. All change is good til it affects you type thing, or the dad that says he's ok with minorities til his daughter brings such a person home saying they are engaged. many are fighting to have wurm continue and with that , i think best solutions will eventuate, or hope and want to believe in that. All aside I think i found someone that can and will type more than I. Ayes was a strong contender for some time, as was another whos name is escaping me during the marathon dispute of sotg a good 5 years back.
  2. Give the scale jacket a scarf

    I'd like mine to be made of sturdy thick worsted wool in a blackwatch tartan. If out of stock, I'd like a long diaphanous, trump like hair in wind, train scarf that really makes an entrance in battle. I've offered a few selections to accommodate differing personal sensibilities. for the aussie crowd, prescilla here in the outback aussie desert for the free spirited and the anime addict

    It is in fact the very same thing ,just stylistically nuanced approach. New toon new server= old toon reset, same outcomes will happen. The spirit at what you are getting at @Elisha, I can get behind that new server isolated can be exploited by old payer for profit not truly giving new player a clean fresh start and in that way P/R was a failure where people got stupid "rich" so to speak off off of it where prices were elevated over rest of freedom due to being isolated. What is it you are trying to achieve? You mention several things as valid problems that don't have the same solution.
  4. Slaying of the Troll king

    very nicely organized and attended, Blah was nice with summoning many and a surprise donation to event of some kingdom of Crow merch by Gofs was very generous and nice. Ty to oblivionnreaver and Blah for inviting me and making public , nice to see many friends about.

    @jaz i couldn't stop laughing. Daolin has emerged!.
  6. Slaying of the Troll king

    sounds like you may have captured Chlodovech! come to think of it i''ve not seen him in a while. Though you can't rule out those Dutch..they can be quite hard to wrangle and prone to aggression and hold dearly their independence, no pun intended.
  7. Deer devs can we have deer colours now

    +1 be a deer about it and give us some color lovin
  8. Simple Fix for Uniques

    If i could ammend that and maybe it was a given by you having stated: 1.only those that damage a drake or dragon get hide or scale for 2 i'd like to suggest the more premium players in local that are attacking, landing hits on dragon, not just bystanders, that tome drop increases.......and all the rest you said. I like this otherwise. as far as people being happy I just dont know about that as what people want, expect in material things and what people consider fair are all so varied much like politic views are where there can be many right points but conflict with one another. It's so tiring they are like that thing you hear of how the lottery has wrecked winners lives. I feel like we'd be a far better off community without the damn things till we can learn to better socialize about them.
  9. WTS PVP Avatar Togiodi

    Wonderful account but i'm sad to see a friend for many year stepping back, but i know you are onward and upward to many good things, to that end i say Excelsius with ghusto!! I will miss you about though. Good luck with the sale, this had had an illustrious pvp history

    This here post alone deserves some spot of permanence in wurm for new, existing, and returning player alike. You are always known for your thoughtful missives yet this is one of your most eloquent!! You have articulated a shared sentiment far more delicate and beautiful than I could with great finesse in a masterfully choreographed dance of words. This was timely as I was feeling some heavy about the game interactions and elevated my spirit and affirmation along with hope that yes much more does happen inside this network of code, key strikes and mouse clicks. The same way I believe it to be more than "just a game", the notion of "en vino veritas" rings true. Translated in wine is truth is the supposition that what we reveal in a state of alter via wine is who we authentically are, that our true nature emerges. A phrase I like equally is, people are like Tea Bags in that only in hot water is their true essence revealed. Although we can altar how we project in a cyber environment as it does shield a good deal, how we choose to play the game over time also with certainty reveals our own character and make up as well. Thank you for taking the time to post such a meaningful and pensive response, the gift of that spreads far beyond me, and the post, but to all those that dare a glance at it and let the warm energy of it flow within them carrying forward that seed of thought and being. Namaste'

Nah you're a good egg there ole loinky-d-sploink
  12. Apocalypse Order is recruiting!

    A nice milestone forward. You're kingdom has remained on server earning a legitimate spot, your numbers are growing, so it's timely and awesome to see you recruiting! I'd like to add aside from the allure of playing for the black light, there is not compare it gets it's hooks in you, that I really celebrate what this group stands for and has tried to do on chaos. Rather than just grow numbers for the sake of it, and try to recruit the highest skilled players as the main objective, instead have chosen to go the route of character. That is what has the character of the person behind that avatar been like in game over time. Going this route is harder, leaner, more work, yet does eliminate a lot of unnecessary skulduggery. The payoff shows, you have been drama free as far as anyone can tell, you never shy from a fight, and engage in pvp activity even when vastly outnumbers or being the under powered side of the equation. That takes guts and muster, and..yes Character!!!. A great group, best of luck to all of you and future recruits too.!!!

    That is comical and fitting given the conversation of thought. My comment about wurm=life in swedish was only in jest of poetic humor. That is even more rich that beyond jest in real translation for you it's "craze" for wurm most certainly is that and drawz in all that very crowd. For who among us is not?
  14. Player Impact on another Player

    In keeping with the notion of is it just a game in a larger question, as well as the use of that word to trivialize something real, I witnessed an interesting conversation earlier. What is fun to one may not be fun to another. Sometimes that source of fun, is at the and about the anguish of another. Now in pvp this would be a normal behavior as part of the sport and feeding frenzy of blood lust. A point was made that it's ok on pvp servers but not on pve. While in principle that sounds about right in intention. yet have we not seen countless times where the same behaviors of one server are carried over onto another. Have we seen group mentality of their version of fun that hurts another, and the awareness of that is part of the source of the first group's fun. Yet when tables are turned, that same group does not find the humor, why is that? Amnesia? or is it in the cyberwebs nothing matters...that is of course until it happens to you. It's an interesting scapegoat conveniently deployed only when suiting the version of outcome someone doing unto another wants minimized so they don't have to feel the burden of action or own it and possibly the consequences too. But yet somehow feel that same great injustice when done unto themselves and want accountability. I surmise it is here we get closer to the reason. We've shifted in culture perhaps, globally, to where we own less of our behavior, deflect more of it onto others, scapegoat the reasons, deny until you can deny no more, then lawyer up. Don't we see this has become the norm now where it's nobody's fault..cause you can't tag down who is willing to say yes, that happened because of me. It is here I think why people trivialize situations they can't or don't want to handle down into "It's Just a game" for we also see in this very "just a game", countless examples of where the human condition is alive and well in glorious ways well beyond the game mechanics. Given some of the places roamed, conversations had, and players I have shared time alongside has had me really reflect more on this recently because I am also hearing that statement more and more and trying to discern what does that mean?

    ah, I guess it was confusing when you started your post with you, and if a name isn't referenced it in general understood you are referring to the original post. Thanks for clarifying, see you at the next rift.
