  1. Troll mask, and 2 of each banner to Firestarter please.
  2. Eir

    While we never crossed paths in game, nor as staff members that I recall. I have a lot of respect for anyone who gives up their free time to help this game out, and seeing all the love shown for Eir is really quite something. I'd occasionally hear updates on how you were doing from chats amongst other staff members and I'd kept you among my thoughts, hoping you'd make a recovery. Rest in Peace Eir. My thoughts are with your loved ones at this time.
  3. By all appearances, it's been tidied up so that only the most relevant threads are publically visible. If there is anything missing that you believe should be reinstated please don't hesitate to alert us to that.
  4. In what way would you class this as unfair? By the way things look, everyone had the same opportunity to get to these chests. You cannot cry conspiracy just because you were unable to get an event reward. Not when, and I'll reiterate this, everyone stood on equal footing for them. Perhaps your strengths don't lie in solving puzzles? That's fair enough. Not everyone is good at doing the same things. In that same vein, however, other events where you have succeeded in obtaining a reward would show where your strengths lie, and others do not. I've yet to see anyone else shouting about people conspiring against them because of this. In what way do the gifts that staff members may have received over the years hurt the economy? I've yet to see any of the named items hit the market for sale, nor would I expect to see them. When the items gifted have a specific meaning to the individual staffer I don't believe that the thought of selling them would even cross their minds. Not everyone plays this game with the sole intention of monetising their playing experience. Why are you against it? Is it because you yourself aren't receiving one? Is it because you have the belief that it'll cause irreversible damage to the economy? Given that the volunteer staff of this game selflessly give up hundreds of hours of their time to aid in the running and well-being of this game, I'd say they more than deserve a Christmas gift. Surely in doing these random events, they're succeeding in that goal of keeping players engaged and playing the game? I'm not sure where you get the idea of there being some elite group of players that get advance warning, or unfair advantages from, but I assure you that it's entirely false, and reads as rather delusional and unfairly accusational. That, to me, reads a lot like you're only complaining about it when you yourself are unable to obtain these items. Especially given your first line from your first post in this thread.
  5. This is a song that means a lot to me, one that really resonates with me. Whenever things look bleak, I listen to this song as a reminder that no matter how bad things appear, you can always rise from the ashes eventually. The chorus is permanently inscribed on my shoulder blade for that very reason. Embrace - Ashes
  6. My condolences and thoughts are with you Envy. You had left the team by the time I'd joined a few years back as a CA, but by all accounts you were a damn good staffer. Hopefully you manage to beat this. Cherish the time you can with your loved ones. Especially your pupper!
  7. I know some of you on these forums love seeing pictures of my fur babies, so it saddens me even more to say this. Unfortunately, my little bear, Benji, was killed on Tuesday night. I'll share some pictures of him here, including the last one I took of him on Saturday, some of them you may have already seen.
  8. Adding decoration to a Plain Stone Wall throws an extra space into the line shown in the event window. [20:08:12] You added decorations to the plain stone wall.
  9. The point? To have fun in your own way. I love building deeds in Wurm, and I'm limited by my own skills when it comes to that, so must rely on others for certain things. If I bought an account I could do it all myself for the most part. I don't find joy in endless grinding in games. I'd like to use and do what I'd want to do (within the rules, of course). You say it ruins the experience, but that doesn't ring true for everyone. That's why it's nice to have the option there to jump right to a point and jump into the game without needing to grind.
  10. Very nice! And a huge congratulations to Samool, more than deserved. I've only seen a part of the work you've put in and that itself was immense. Best of luck going forward!
  11. If you can deliver it, I'll offer you the buyout right now.
  12. Having reviewed this thread, this sale comes across as rather deceptive. What you're selling here isn't a magic chest, as you do not own it. Instead, you are selling a deed which happens to have an unlocked magic chest on it. This sale is now locked, you are welcome to adjust it to be less deceptive and repost it. Thanks, GM Team
  13. I heard they were trying to get closer to nature!

  15. Wurm VR

    I think it was a Samsung Galaxy S6. Might internet be a factor too? I'm not too clued up on the technology.
  16. Wurm VR

    A friend of mine who played WU tried to get his Gear VR working with it. I believe it was more of a virtual desktop type thing though, but had the head movement matched. The downside was a pretty noticeable latency between moving your head, and the characters head moving.
  17. As with most, I never would've guessed English wasn't your first language. I must admit, I'm a little surprised! Your English seems better than some people I know in real life haha
  18. Just so you are both aware, there are no Heritage Sites on the Epic servers, nor on Chaos. As far as I'm aware, there never has been either.
  19. As long as they're planted, I don't believe it's possible for a player of the same kingdom to take them.
  20. I find it to be a wholly disrespectful act. Looting a village for a few HoTA's is one thing, but stealing them from a memorial to a fallen player is...well....downright disgusting. While well within the rules of the game, I would've hoped that the individuals who took these would have some degree of morals about them. Evidently not. Words fail to describe the disappointment I feel in whoever took it upon themselves to take them. As Zenity mentioned, quite a few of the people who helped to create that memorial have since moved on from the game. I remember the group of us who banded together to put together something to commemorate our friend who passed a couple of years ago. I know the individuals from that group would also be disappointed in those who did this.
  21. Only when he's really excited, and chasing a ball up the hallway
