  1. Valyrian Highlands! What a great name.
  2. Sup lads

    Welcome back, Lorena. Yep... an entire new cluster is there for the taking. But many of us stayed on the old clusters. They are home. Many people have characters on both the new and the old clusters now. Although for the life of me, I don't know how they manage. I can barely keep up with just Valdor!
  3. Black Friday!

    Sold! I know I am probably getting ripped off with that +80% -50% markup, but those goblin Shakespearean death scenes are too good to pass up.
  4. Does the black bear helm count as a leather or metal helm, for the purposes of combat? Or is it just a vanity item, with no combat protection?
  5. Congrats to all who posted and to the winners! Great work.
  6. I think we had a similar story on Celebration this Thursday. I am not sure about details, but I was asked by a friend if I wanted in on a green drake kill and when I arrived, it seemed like a similar situation... a green beast in the open and people gathered together by a word of mouth. The end result was identical to yours... everyone played nice and we had a great hunt. Thanks for sharing your story. Yes, there are all kinds of people on Wurm, like anywhere else. And I know stories of extreme greed or foul play that happened over the years. Some were quite bad. But the good stories are greater yet. So many wonderful memories. Those I consider my friends on Wurm (or even friendly acquaintances) are great people that demonstrated their friendliness and generosity over and over again. There are some I would trust with my prize horse, or my favorite fantastic item. It's really heartwarming to think about that part of our community and interact with them in game. Wurm is richer for having them. Congrats on your dragon kill, Nirav. And here is to your next adventures!
  7. Well yea. There are books to read, friends to call, educational sites to visit, hobbies to pursue, families to get in touch with... the list is endless Look, I am being facetious, I know. No disrespect intended, I promise. You may have a good suggestion there and I am sure the developers would like to hear good suggestions. But if you come out with guns blazing like that, I doubt they will be happy to read it. I know I wouldn't. Perhaps a good place to start would be to find out WHY there was a restart at that particular time. There may be a good reason for it that we are not aware of...
  8. You lucky dogs! So far, no Halloween drops for me. Then again, I have all of them from previous years, so I am really out there just for the bear mask. Maybe Sunday. I'll make a hunting trip in the evening. Or will the event be over by then?
  9. Because it's home. I have been on Celebration for years and I absolutely love the server. I love its people, its lands, its waterways... I am familiar with many corners of the server and from time to time I travel around to see the changes. I can remember old deeds in places where today only forests roam. I can remember Kami Canal the way it was several upgrades ago. I can point you to where the first unique was killed, where the first bridge was built, or to old tunnels which few know about. Every part of the land is history to me. I know where the best hunting spawns are, where the best gold or best marble is, where I have to go for shortcuts over many mountain passes. I can remember Tapdance Market the way it was before its 1st redesign. Celebration is home to me. I love my deed there and I love how we are defined more by water than by land on Cele. A horse and cart is as important as on any server, but on Cele a good ship is a must. Our waterways are our main roads. I guess I am getting sentimental after all those years. But so many neighbors came and went and so many areas were rebuilt and rebuilt again. Yet after all this time, Celebration remains... majestic, timeless and evermore my place in Wurm.
  10. Well, since this thread has been resurrected (and perhaps for a good reason - this is part of Deliverance lore now), let me add my own small story. It's nothing compared to the Great Loom Push - far from it - but I too have been part of the Push Culture (tm), so I feel somewhat legit. When I was still a noob, some 3 centuries ago, I moved into a decaying shack near the first friend I made in Wurm - Delone. There, I worked on my skills and prepared myself for exploring Celebration to find a place for a deed of my own. This phase of my life took approximately two months, during which I made a number of objects for the new deed. One of them... was a rowing boat. With my barely existent shipbuilding skills, I slaved on the boat on and off for about a week. I made it next to my shack, which was far away from any water. My reasoning was - and you have to remember I was a noob - that I would finish the boat and then pick it up and walk it to the sea shore. After all, the rowing boat was not much bigger than a canoe and I certainly lifted those in real life. So, the vessel was finished and its was made of cedar. I think you can guess the rest. The rowing boat was too heavy to lift. So, here I was, a dude with a boat in the middle of a forest. I felt like part of the Fellini poster "E la nave va" (look it up!). Luckily for me, my friend Delone came to help. And the distance to water was nowhere near as monumental as the distance the loom had to travel in the original story on this thread. We pushed and pushed, during which time my noob mind was completely convinced that the boat would probably sink the moment it hits water. But it floated! And in the next week I travelled all over Celebration in it and found a perfect location for my new home - The Garden of Fo. I am still in that home and the boat is still with me. The moral of the story? Well, back then it was "build sea vessels next to the shore, you dolt". But now, it's "make sure you know someone with a ship transporter!"
  11. Hmm, I know I am late to the party, but that totally looks like a bunch of reindeer pulling a sled. Damn... Santa is early on Cele again!
  12. Hmm, I knew there was something fishy about Wurm...
  13. Darn it! Now you tell me?! I could have saved all those gold coins I threw into all those wells over the years and just deposit one iron!

    Woot! Sounds like a party. I will do my best to attend. I will bring my leatherworking tools, as always, so I will help with all your leather needs. Looking forward to it!
  15. Oh wow, how did I miss this contest! I'll have to be more vigilant in the future for such literary opportunities. But so many great entries! Some awesome reads. Great work, Wurmians!
