  1. So many exciting things on the way! Fantastic post Samool!
  2. Yeah when I was meditating the other day, I had a visual glitch that "revealed" that there is in fact underwear already existing on our characters (as Oblivionreaver pointed out before) and was very excited to take some screenshots as well! Apparently male characters also have male underwear. After asking about this, I heard that this is an old thing and has been there for a long time. However no-one was able to tell me about the history of why exactly our already existing underwear was covered up! It seems that the texture is missing from the bottom of the little skirt, but if one were to imagine that being there, I feel that this underwear would be perfectly demure enough to not feel like people are naked. Also, for those bothered by seeing too much flesh, perhaps there could be a setting.
  3. Horses have been restocked and the market is bursting with many new baby foals. https://docs.google.com/document/d/10M4hvqUTczx8uDo-DTmPLrGctQ5B1Qi3AJfl5_LvpQE/
  4. Thank you for your input Spolmit. You are of course talking about Mystic Highlands. I used to watch quite a bit of Valiance's streams back in the day. I really love what you guys have going on over there! As for the stream, you can see the export of it here:
  5. What wonderful responses everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to give your ideas, thoughts and input to this thread! Thanks for chiming in Elminster. I absolutely love what your village has going on, and I hope to see more of it in Wurm! I think the huge amount of attention and interest that your guy's "secret cult village" has generated so far, only goes to prove how utterly parched we've been for some RP in this game and shows the potential for more of it. It's no coincidence that you guys have everyone excited with what you're doing! Yes I agree! If I think back to all the years I played WoW and whether or not I would have played as many years of it without those roleplaying servers, I doubt I would have spent as much time there without them! Some of my most magical player interactions I've ever had in an MMO happened on those RP servers. Absolutely! The new overhead speech has been wonderful! Same here. Even though I consider myself a roleplayer, I certainly have days where all I want to do is log on and play the game. Roleplaying requires emotional effort. And it's not every day we have the emotional reserves or strength to engage in it. Goodwin I know I know how you feel. I have to wonder just how many else are out there who would love to do it sometimes, but feel nervous or wary to do so because they can't know who is and who isn't a roleplayer. It would be very cool if we had some way to show other players that we're up for some RP. Nice to hear that when you played on RP-PvP servers in WoW, that the PvPers there actually roleplayed as well! But yeah, I guess since we don't have dedicated RP servers in Wurm, it explains why there has been very little visible RP. I see people RP on the PvE servers once in a while though. If Wurm every became a larger game, maybe then at least one RP server might be an idea, but until then, obviously not. Oh that's wonderful to hear! Just goes to show that it -is- out there, even if in small doses. Which makes me wonder... if someone set up a deed and advertised it as a RP hotspot, I wonder how many would flock in for a good bit of roleplaying? Most likely, to avoid griefing, it would have to be a locked area and only set permissions for access through the front gate for whoever is actually there for the right reason. Almost makes me want to try something like this! I agree wholeheartedly! I guess the only minus side to this, is whether it would also attract griefers to come and crash those parties. And does Wurm staff have the resources to deal with those situations... That is such an excellent point. It does feel bad to "spam" others in the local range with RP chatter. It really would be nice to have a smaller proximity range textual chat. Yes! It was such an excellent point that Faerran reminded us of in that stream! Using IRC to create a chat just for an event or for RP related situations was a great idea! Haven't seen it used that way. I think I will try this with the kingdom city once it gets finished. A great idea, that would be so awesome to give a little bit of flavor to our characters. Thanks for chiming in with your input Platyna! As for /me, I do believe that works in the Wurm chat tabs. To be fair, only tried it in local and alliance. Not sure if it works in the global chats etc. That's an excellent point! It would be cool if you could choose a certain path. Just like we have journals customized for a normal character versus a priest, have a few more that offer journal tasks more matched to the route you want to take in Wurm. I like it.
  6. Cheers:D

    Thank you for creating this wonderful game Rolf. It's brought so many people joy for so many years and it surely must be a proud moment to see it flourish and grow like this! The game has always had it's devout fans who believed strongly in the vision of this game, but now it feels like we have finally reached that critical mass of new people who have fallen head over heels for Wurm and will ensure that it will continue to grow and thrive! The best of luck with your current and future adventures and keep on Wurming!
  7. I absolutely agree with this. Since Wurm does not have separate roleplaying servers, I would hope that anyone trying to roleplay with just normal players understands this fact and is willing and able to be flexible when encountering people who don't want to play along.
