  1. Yeehaw! Ol' Troll King's come to town with his no good Beefsteak Grill! Ain't no-one runnin' and singin' when his grill comes to town, no siree! You don't know what everyone says about his big ol' Beefsteak Grill? Meat's too hard! Yessir, it's Hardened, just as he is! Why, might that there could be a rootin' tootin' plan, adventurer! We could gonna round us up some steers and heifers to ride - don't want no horse meat in the mix now - and hit 'em with blunt weapons only! Tenderize that there hardened meat some! Why that could be a darn ol' skippy ol' brainulation! But you'll wanna get there right early now! No sense gettin' while the gettin's cold - the meat's cold!

  3. They say fire and books make bad bedfellows, Yet fire and Dragons is natural. Intelligent Dragons are often heard of, So a Dragon with books can't be irrational. Though books of conquest, slayings, deeds, Cannot be a dragon's favourite. Stories of "heroes" slaying dragons? It must be hard for him to savour it. But alas such a tale must repeat, This we cannot burn or avoid. So grab your axes, your hammers and staves, And send this learned Dragon to the void.,1569 Late fees will be incurred for late arrivals, be sure to get there early!
  4. You ever been along to a sermon and seen a horde of priests wearing their weapons like this? THAT WEAPON ISN'T BALANCED, HE'S BEEN HOLDING IT LIKE THAT FOR HOURS, HOW STRONG ARE HIS HANDS?! You ever looked down to see a big old shield by your side? You're just blacksmithing, but you know that if you take it off, you won't remember to re-equip it when a Venerable troll visits. What do you mean, Stan? I just love cooking with my shield out, it feels so natural, and no-one can see what's behind it! Presenting the solution: putting your gear on your back, automatically! I won't spoil for you how sick this looks with the new Dragon Staff "But Stan," you say having thought this through, "wouldn't it be silly to kill a mob then immediately have our weapons fly onto our backs?" Yes. It would, but thankfully this can serve a small gameplay purpose by piggybacking an existing system: for 5 minutes after combat, you cannot log out quickly (such as in a bed) or utilize a Portal. This could become an indicator for that - your weapons only being holstered when you would be able to log instantly/use a portal! Now it's functional AND slick!
  5. Update: The last one on Desertion, the White Dragon, has finally fallen. Looking at you, Serenity (and looking at y'all to post your stories, because there's definitely been more folks over there!)
  6. It displays properly to me, but here's a link
  7. In other words, I had a lot of Fun with this one's tether The results are in. The dragon's anaemic, and the only cure is a full blood transfusion! So bring your weapons and let's beat all of his blood out! It's on the south edge of K13. The deed, "The Pawd," is on the highway network. Getting there early is advised because even I don't know how to get there. It's not near enough the water for alts to be boat-parked.
  8. [Optional pre-image text] [Post-image text, hammier the better! **Deli note: it's a Blue Dragon, so keep it themed that way! Already did fishing, but maybe Sharknado? Forgot to get my own screens for photoshopping, see if the wiki's is any good. Also it's well past time you took a bunch of screenshots while luring them for these purposes!] [Use timeanddate to plug a timer into the event timer, correct links look like this: **Deli note: 8pm my time, Sunday] [Don't forget the map **Deli note: it's at the same place as last time, use the same map located at,1569 ] [Remind about arriving EARLY. Possibly mention tents if dangerous or if people died at the last one. Also blood type, maybe mention other drops. **Deli note: Not dangerous, butchering again! How come we don't have this dragon type for years and now there's an explosion of them? Really emphasise the early: it took you a while to find that canal and you've used it before!]
  9. I can see it now. Loading up VR, looking at some megadeeds, getting wowed by the pure sense of scale that VR can bring. It'll be pretty damn sick. For all of 10 minutes. Maybe 30, if you travel. Now don't get me wrong, I look forward to the sheer levels of optimization needed to bring Wurm to VR. This game shouldn't be taking 75% of a 3090's power. And if that doesn't get done, maybe Wurm VR will find a new audience in, say, training astronauts to not vomit. I especially look forward to how I'll cast Circle of Cunning on items in VR. That'll be impressive menuing in a VR environment that a lot of games will stand to learn from.

    "Hello it is I, Steropes Gob, and I have an exciting new item for the marketplace. Please come to my tech demo at Bruce's Flying Circus, X17 Y31, or N13 ingame, at the time below, to witness this exciting new technology. Below you'll also find a preview to give you a taste of what we have to show you! We will be making the world a better place through integrated technologies!"
  11. Gone fishin'

    Yeeeehaw! Come on down to Stan's A Great Big Blue Scaly Flying Fish Lair We have the catch of the day! A great big old flying old blue old boy I tell you what! Get yerself some tips on butchering fish properly (butchering potions) and some scales and entrails! (caution: fish is not de-boned)
  12. Great post! Shame about the war bonnet, but get in touch with me and I'll give you some resources and pointers to help make it smooth!
  13. Hotkey for Ride, so I can press two buttons and lead/ride my horse quickly, rather than using the select menu (which apparently puts Feed under my mouse when I hit Lead, rather than Ride or Stop Leading) or the right click menu (which likes to rearrange itself once it's done Refreshing) No, really, it's a thing, it's a pain to use the right click menu, don't do it: And seriously why wouldn't "stop leading" be under the mouse when you hit Lead on the select menu, that feels like design 101:
  14. I'll be along to bully the priests and burn all the ropes, should be 99.90 channelling by then (currently 99.895) b- what
  15. In all things there must be a balance. Good and evil. Right and wrong. The Sith necessitate the Jedi... just as do the the Jedi necessitate the Sith. When this balance is misaligned, it is up to us neutral actors to restore it. A new player has entered Celebration's eternal struggle for the Seals. The Venerable Hardened Black Dragon! And its power is overwhelming compared to its seal clubbing counterparts! "I'm going to go club a seal" "not today" We will be breaking the seal of the mine within which the seal guardian is sealed (MAP LINK) at this time:
  16. Familiar Guys

    only one of them has one eye and drops leatherworking blood, and that's it
  17. "hey lewis do you remember that time we made an entire server completely flat?" Come on down to The Crusty Crab or something I already forgot the name Time keenly positioned to interrupt the Friend-along as much as possible: no I haven't seen any related tv program to this Leatherworking blood, everything rolled
  18. This would help a great many people who see low FPS and cry "lag"
  19. The Venerable Angry Horse-hater is here! And frankly, this one's personal. Good pre-patch horses were lost to this one. Bring your sharpest revenge-sticks to Bruce's Flying Circus! And for their sakes: do not bring a horse! Any other mount (that may join Dancepick and Lightningace) are fine. Take those ropemaking potions, and make rope in the honour of those that fell.
  20. Almost every day that I play Wurm Online, I open Niarja. It helps me keep abreast of the news regarding Uniques - which I frequently host public slayings of on Freedom. Every now and then when I open the page, my heart jumps! So many new names! Oh. Right. Got got by the list of living uniques. Again. Often I'd dream of clearing up that list of uniques. Would Niarja delete the category? Would it remain but be empty? But aside from that one on Xanadu after Charcoal died, they're all on Epic. And Epic was PvP. And I don't PvP. And then one day, something very peculiar happened. Something that would forever change Stanlee; Something he would never quite forget. They took the initiative! In a spur of the moment move, I decided to take a look at the list of slayers. As soon as I could, I got in touch with Stainless to congratulate him. I reasoned that, with a name so close to mine, he must be the leader. This assumption turned out to be almost entirely correct. After some talking, I gave him an offer he couldn't refuse: I, and whatever friends crazed enough to join me, would come over and lend some peoplepower to clearing up the rest of the uniques on that server. After all, why would they stop at the hatchlings? In return, they got all of the loot. It turned out the loot was not the only incentive to this: the two champion uniques had no tether, and were quite prone to smashing defences, deeds and lost lumberjacks. I even did art for this, which I used in the signup sheet for my alliance. The signup sheet showed more interest than I'd anticipated, and it became quickly clear we'd need to make our own gear. I thought we'd just be shoved in some little shed out in the open, outside a deed for security's sake, but we were invited inside their megafort! Not only was it ridiculously defensive, but it turns out enemies have a pretty severe CR penalty on the home server, meaning we were safer there than on my deed on Release (open design, champ trolls)! Such tall walls! Luckily, skills move from Freedom to Epic 1:1 (so long as you don't have a 3x death multiplier on that skill on Epic), so I could take all of my skills over. Oh. Right. All of my skills. I main priest. That'll be a- Nah kidding, I got to like 70 leatherworking in a day over there. Skillgain is silly fast there, and so are the timers. Within a few days, we had gear that was a strange mix of good and disposable. Good in QL, disposable in how little time it took us to make and imp. In fact, PvP almost felt approachable - disposable gear, no affinities to lose. But I don't PvP. I never thought I'd get this one done! Before the big day, I got to ride around. See some of the sights. Which I'll share with you now: Collecting some of my teammates (note: a bug causes empty gear slots to be visually filled with your other cluster's gear when crossing. No effect on gameplay, and no-one else could see my mask) When's the last time you saw treeless plains? Beardyman's megadeed. Nothing like it, truly remarkable. On one fateful Friday, the stars aligned and enough of us were free to begin. Unlike Freedom slaughters that I host, these fights had a rush of mortality to them - though no-one died I think. Scale/hide drops are a set but small amount over there, no randomness to that. Sorcery items don't drop from humanoids or dragons at all. Chaaaarge! Yes, I'm using a shield with a huge axe. No, the shield isn't real, it's from the same bug as earlier. This boy was biiiiig! Double Dragon! These two were inseparable, so they died together too. Sweet. Poor guy pictured just about tanked both, serious badassery. And when the dust settled, the list had been trimmed significantly. I cannot thank our hosts enough for helping us try Epic, and guiding us. Despite what I'd frequently read on the forums - that Epic is bad - we had a blast, it was a revitalizing rush from start to finish. Think even a few carebears were eyeing up PvP! But, if you open Niarja, you can no doubt see that the list is not trimmed enough. To that end, I highly encourage people to get in contact with factions there, and do as I have! It's a real blast, I can't recommend it enough. I might even throw in a little something for someone, at random, who manages to kill one of the remaining living uniques! Edit: since originally writing this (I wanted to wait for the Creative Constructs thread to close before posting it) it seems others have taken to mopping up the rest of the list! I hope they're having as good a time as I did, and hope to see some of them write about it here if so! The Living Uniques list now stands at a whole SIX (we can't find the one left on Desertion!) and it's going down steadily!
  21. Important note: Is it very likely the location will change before the actual date (it's a bad cave and a long time before then). Keep an eye on this thread for details!
  22. Category: Wacky and Wild! Come on down to Stan's Deed Of Wonders! We have a range of strangeness to confuse you, and anomalies to bewilder you! Each one found in cursed crypts, and brought back to here for your amusement! Usually a tour is a reasonable 1g25 - but for you dear judges and viewers, this time it is free! Our first attraction: The Sideways Diner! Truly, if Breakfast In Bed is magnificent, then this is the pinnacle of vertical banquets! Watch as not a single item falls from the table in which it is set! Then, feast your eyes upon the terrible and cursed Ur'gan's Chair of Shrinking! Yes! Whomever rests upon the chair is temporarily shrunk to the size of half a regular person! But beware, should you be resting upon the chair when Ur'gan rises from his grave, you will be stuck at that size... forever! These are all of my attractions... for now. I look forward to wandering the servers and collecting more! Ahem. Now it should be said that, rather than actually being actual chairs or objects placed on walls (or photoshop, as I use for my hunting threads), these screenshots are creations of small illusions or engineering. This will absolutely get me kicked out of the Alliance of Magicians to reveal how I did it, so first try and examine the images carefully, use your own ideas as to how they were performed.
  23. A few notes: 1) We will be using International Standard ISO 3103 to prepare the tea. 2) An unknown thing about this Standard is that it is recommended to arrive at least an hour early, to account for travel issues. I'm not known to wait. 3) The tea is not boneless. One of you may end up with a bone in your tea. This is expected. 4) Despite being "greenish white" the resulting Salve of Frost from the blood will not also apply acid damage. 5) The tea is being prepared at the usual spot: X17 Y31 6) Formal attire is desired, but not required. 7) Serving is at this time
  24. My creature.class is messed up so I can't pull up the exact line, but in Creature.class if (p != null && p.getInventory() != null && p.isWithinDistanceTo(this, 300.0F) && p.isPaying()) replace with if (p != null && p.getInventory() != null && p.isWithinDistanceTo(this, 300.0F) && p.isPaying() && (!p.isStealth() || p.isOnPvPServer())) with some quick testing on Test because I'm not a coder by any stretch of the imagination, and bam, that's the dev time edit: all this in less time than it'd take a GM to investigate a single report, I'd bet
