  2. Platyna's Play

    Dear Wurmians of Wurm, I have taken the action of banning a player due to a repeated, ongoing history of harassment of Wurm staff. Platyna has been removed from in-game as well as the forums pending a full review of her behavior towards staff and other players. We do not take these bans lightly, and spend a considerable amount of time attempting to provide feedback and warnings regarding repeated harassment and accusations at staff and developers. I made several attempts to provide feedback both for and against this person's arguments. Eventually, as Platyna's actions became increasingly worse I provided Platyna with several recommendations about their behavior and the way she was treating others. It has become obviously clear over the last few months that Platyna either cannot or will not listen, I made the decision to remove this player from the game in order to maintain a healthy community. I will always endeavor to provide fair, balanced moderation, and our moderation leads are always willing to respond to escalated cases. There is no excuse for failure to abide by the game rules and instructions from moderation staff. Even if our system of moderation is not pristine and perfect, we have always provided avenues of approach to help with any complaints and issues raised. 99.9% of the time we come to a beneficial understanding.... then there is Platyna.... Platyna always maintained a moderate, calm, and civil discourse with me as Head Game Master, but she did not extend that courtesy to anyone else it would seem. I will not stand idly by and let anyone tear down others! Not the Wurm team, and not our members here at Wurm Online! No one should face the kind of harassment that was being thrown around by Platyna on an ever increasing basis! As I said, this ban is still pending review, but as Platyna is already at work spreading misinformation I decided to make a public post stating the situation. Anytime there were questions regarding our decision there were avenues to discuss them with us. The avenues of escalation are as follows: Forum: Pandalet In-game: Astarte Discord: Capi Please reach out to them if you ever have any issues with moderation, and we will work with you. Regards, Enki (Head Game Master)
  3. I am now in the same boat as of a few minutes ago.
  4. Today, the final day of one of the single most infuriatingly horrible years the world at large has known in a long time, I attempted the final Random Enkounter of the year. Xanadu was the chosen server, and when I landed I was on a highway with a guy on horseback just trotting by. I shouted out my customary greeting "Greetings!" and .... nothing.... he just mosied on by and left the area 😥 Always be on the lookout in the coming year for more great games like Battle Checkers! and more fantastical prizes as I randomly surprise people.
  5. Time for another long awaited Enkounter as it is already the 53rd of November. This time Chaos was the server and Michaelfurst and Williamwierd were the lucky ones who had to enkounter 3 random challenges. [14:26:19] <Enki> GREETINGS!

[14:48:50] <Enki> How could you not think of Tar [14:49:52] <Enki> Very well, you should know by now what comes next [14:50:36] <Enki> Did you jsut kill one of my contestants!!! [14:50:49] <Williamwierd> he touch my poney Challenge #3 I seem to have lost a contestant so it was now up to Williamwierd to defeat the Cylon invasion before they get a foothold on Chaos. Wave 1 - 12 Cylon Centurions Oh I wish you could see this...... It was going so badly for Williamwierd that I decided to give him a tip. [14:59:54] <Enki> TIP: You can use any tactic or forfeit and flee Oh what a tragedy.... I told the rest of the cylons just to start invading as there was no hope here. I could not stop laughing... Sorry about that Williamwierd, but as it is the holiday season I did at least save the horse from them/ Wait..what's this.... some life left in Williamwierd.... He worked on pumping enough blood back into his veins that he could stay in the saddle a little longer. Yet not a single Centurion had fallen. !!!!! 4 Centurions dead.... what is happening! All of a sudden we have a fight! 8 dead! 12 dead! What a turnaround for Williamwierd! But wait, a Cython has appeared.... and I did not invite it! Williamwierd wins! For his effort 4 supreme large pizzas, a rare statue of a girl, and a rare cloth barding. Oh if only you could have witnessed this in person!!!! Until the next Enkounter sometime in late December!
  6. It's that time again! Seems like it has been ages since I antago.. I mean surprised some one with some unexpected fun. Lets see where the Randomizer wants to send me today on the eighty-first of October. (spins the wheel) Ooh, nice... Celebration it is. And it looks like Demonix, Madnath, and Silakka are the targets for this month. They must face 3 random challenges! Challenge #1 A Riddle. A head I have, but no body. I provide a glowing perspective. What am I? Madnath came up with Lamp and is correct! Challenge #2 Waht Starfall are we in? Madnath looked at his wrist sundial and replied with Bear's. Which is correct! Challenge #3 <Madnath> The last time you came here, you dunked a valrei mob on us that we nuked incredibly fast. If you're dropping mobs again.... let's make it a tough one? <Demonix> jeez madnath, just ask him to smite you why dont you <Demonix> DONT YOU GO IN YOUR HOUSE AFTER SAYING THAT! GET BACK HERE! Today's creature them is based on Spielberg's best and most famous works. Round 1 - Wakko! 20 Champion Wakko's entered the field ready to eat everything not nailed down. Madnath was already at half health by the time I finished writing the above sentence. Wakko must have been in need of some more doughnuts because he lacked the energy to finish Madnath off, but I do believe Demonix ended up having to spend a few moments watching their life flash before their eyes. Roud 2 - Yakko! 30 Sly Yakko's entered the fray and .. <Silakka> oh man <Madnath> oh lord <Enki> Let Yacko have a whack <Madnath> this is gonna be rough <Madnath> I wish I kept up shield training now <Silakka> do you regret asking for harder mobs now <Madnath> yes Demonix is the only one close to living while Silakka and Madnath are getting acquainted with death. (It does amuse me watching their health draw down steadily. Gives the scene a nice bit of xmas colors) Dang it! They all survived! Round 3 - Rita and Runt. Well that wasn't very sporting. Runt was of no help to Rita at all. Final Round. Dot was off today so she asked me to find a suitable stand in. The Brain and Pinky were eager to give it a whirl but Pinky only agreed if Pharfignewton could join in. Who was I to argue. <Madnath> oh god NOT NOGUMPS AAAAAAAAA <Silakka> if one of them steals your armor you're gonna instadie lol <Madnath> im about to drop already <Madnath> omfg it took my seryll ring and damaged it <Silakka> rekt The group invited their own private militia (i.e. 1 worg) but with the Brain's leadership the three and their worg were doomed! (so I had hoped) In fact I was very surprised by Pharfignewton's stellar performance! In the middle of the melee I had to leave, much to my dismay, and upon my return I found all three still alive, much to my dismay, and Brain's forces demolished. As Brain and Pinky dusted themselves off and left, I overheard them mention something about planning something for tomorrow night, so I took them off the roster for the next event. Well, it was a valiant effort, Demonix, Madnath, and Silakka won the whole kit and kaboodle. They won a golden statuette of Fo, along with a Raft of Supreme river rafting complete with emergency pumpkin seeds and also a Rare cauldron filled with sea rations! Unfortunately the super rare Shovel of Resurrection was awarded at the Lunalong. With it you can raise the dead and party like its 1099! This has been another Random Enkounter brought to you by the folks at Happy Hills General Mercantile. If you need a plow shear or bolt of cloth delivered quickly, order this month and the folks at Happy Hills General Mercantile will guarantee delivery by next spring or the shipping will not be added to your tab. That's Happy Hills General Mercantile for all your settler needs. Keep an eye on the horizon as the next Random Enkounter will arrive sometime between November fiftieth thru the sixty-first!
  7. To paraphrase the great and mighty Prime "Aww Chaz..." A lot of us have built a lot of history here, and a lot of it with Chasone.
  8. Annalise

    I never really know what to post in these matters... I know I have played with Annalise and have known her as a player for a long time, but I have to really dig deep to find my last encounter with her and that was when she assisted me in trying to identify an ancient Greek coin. I can't really give any amusing anecdotes or examples of any projects we may have been involved in, but when you hear her name spoken, you know it is someone with a lot of history with us. Goodbye Annalise p.s. just in case you got internet up there....I am still avoiding lamb after that last cooking fiasco!
  9. Apologies for the delay, but I had all the logs collected to work on this since I last posted and today I finally got to put it all together. The person who ended up with the dragon, I am assuming is Battlewall, did not lure the dragon out of it's earlier containment. I can see by the logs that the dragon had mined its own way out of the deed in more than one place and on the 12th - 13th it freed itself via a tunnel that was mined 17 days earlier. The dragon had been free in the wild for up to 24 hours before it was collected and moved to a new containment. The previous person/s with claim on it, simply did not maintain their penning of the creature and allowed it to escape by natural means as best as I can tell via the logs. So, yeah, assuming Battlewall is the new claimant, I do not find fault in this exchange and this event may continue. /Enki (Head Game Master)
  10. I hate to put a damper on things like this, but..... I have ended up investigating some claims regarding this creature. I will update you more after I finish checking things out.
  11. Samool took my big bucket of Halloween candy away and said I could not go trick or treating this year unless I agreed to help with this little oversight. So yeah, you can make a ticket for a one time transfer of the demon helm off of Defiance.
  12. I'm alive?! That's news to me!
  13. Dye Hoard With the fix of a recent exploit concerning dye production allowing people to make improbable quantities of an improbable dye, we have identified those who severely abused the situation and penalized them with a tax of 80% of their stockpiles. While this may not be entirely fair to the rest of our members, since the unintended dye itself is available throughout the world, we believe this action taken against these hoarders necessary to severely reduce the unintended nature of this specific situation. Thank You, Wurm Online Team
  14. Today the randomizer dropped me off on Xanadu in an active village with Clifford, Melloyello, and Strawberrieluvsu They would need to face 4 random challenges! Challenge #1 Find Enki within 1 minute! Clifford won when he found me hiding among at stack of crates as a crate! He won a supreme steel pickaxe Challenge #2 What is the newest PvP island called? Melloyello responded immediately with the correct answer. Melloyello receives a rare oakenwood longbow. Challenge #3 What special event occurred in Discord recently? They correctly answered! https://discordapp.com/channels/202801255024689153/203222508936101888/757442019743367307 Our server became an official partner with Discord. Challenge #4 They chose the animal theme. tsk...they should have chosen Stargate... Survive 6 waves of natures most visciously inhumane creatures! Wave 1. The Common House Cat x30 They now have enough house cat fur to make several winter coats! Wave 2. - The Rabid Koalas x50 Great challenge! The Rabid Koala's are really working these guys over! 20 minutes into the wave and its really exciting with lots of death! ~40 minutes Rabid Koala's +5(including guards) Clifford dead -2 2 new contestants joined in on Wave 3! Arize and Kgorski Wave 3. Marsh Toads x60 poor deed guard The participants all seem to be doing well.... perhaps too well Wave 4. Gerbils x70 Okay... will return the remaining gerbils to the pet store.... totally useless in battle! Ooh Correction! Gerbils +2(including guards) Strawberriesluvsu -1 Wave 5. Caterpillar x30 I'm disappointed..... I always had a tough time fighting these things and they are making mince meat out of these creatures! Well this ain't much fun! Wave 6. The Pet Shop staff and guards! I can't believe how easy they killed off the pet shop team. Then I realized the guard worms were not attacking! Lazy things! Oh well, They won a nice assortment of random stuff including sand, dirt, a stool, food, and an assortment of randomness to split up! But because they did die during the final challenge, the Glimmersteel Mirror Portal to their own private fully stocked castle with working Eyes of Sauron guard towers is off the table. Too bad too, I hear the spas there are the best!
  15. Lunalong 2020

    Hehehehe.... so will I....so will I... Enki goes to polish his axe
  16. This is going to be good! Unfortunately I do not qualify! If anyone cares to remember, I already did a lore based fanfic too. and you should always be wary of any others that might popup......👹🤫😱
  17. This time I landed on Affliction with Widow in local. After giving an introduction to Random Enkounters....for the umphteenth time.... Widow would have to face 4 random challenges. Challenge #1 Within 1 minute, name the newest PVP island? Widow answered correctly by naming all the new servers! Oh well..... Challenge #2 What new creature was encountered on Cadence? Trick question... yet Widow sort of got it right with "oh... no idea.." Challenge #3 What does a red beam of light indicate? Widow nailed that one instantly. Rift locations! Challenge #4 Face off with the Princessesss's Armies! 5 waves of the most devious armies your beloved childhood characters could throw. Wave 1 - Snowy White's Singing Cave Bugs x15 sigh.... Snowy White's army fell in minutes... green blood covered the ground everywhere.... Wave 2 - Cindabella's Glasshoppers x25 ooooooohhhh... Widow almost died in the first few moments of battle but just managed to make it into the water to recover. This angry looking horde had teeth and claws as sharp as broken glass. Widow took the time to strategize a way to thin them out a little to keep them from gnawing on her ankles. With time and dedication, Widow managed to crush them into broken bone and bloody guts. Wave 3 - Aurobora's Bone Breakers x30 The diminutive Bone Breakers with their long tails and gnarly noses stormed the beach from the woods and were too short to reach the now equestrian mounted Widow. The Bone Breakers wore the edge of Widow's axe, but in the end they all succumbed under the feet of Widow's horse. Aurobora should seriously rethink her allegiances! Wave 4 - Tiadorna's Frogmen x40 The Frogmen rose from the ground like some nightmarish ghouls and their green complexion made it clear to all that they were cold blooded people eating machines. Widow rode around the battlefield to buy time to come up with an attack plan and at the same time a wild hyena came to her aid. Widow was in trouble and sought the assistance of any passing guards but thye were asleep at their posts. Widow had to ride through and knock them awake to get any assistance with the invading army. Not long after the guards got involved a giant field mouse, a snake, a crocodile, a seal, and a pig entered the fray... though truth be told, I was not sure whose side thye were on! The battle raged on till morning and Widow was not fairing too well or too bad. Just holding her own against the invaders. As this battle was going to take a while, I found a nearby shade tree and took a nap. When I awoke, I found the corpses of the mouse, the snake, the croc, the seal, and the guards.... but where was Widow and the Frogmen? A few moments later Widow rode up to me and said "i think i cleared them... used some help tho but you said any tactic lol" I checked all around and could find no sign of the horde of Frogmen, and I was curious as to what tactics were eventually used while I napped. Wave 5 - Ariemmas Saberclawed Crustations x50 Hmmm... It is clear these soldiers need more training... they clearly don't have a clue how to invade! This was just embarrassing! Ariemma will have to go back to Princess training school and learn how to train her armies to be blood thirsty killing machines! Oh the horror! Anyone hungry for crab? All you can eat smorgasbord on Affliction just south west of Blackbone. Well it is clear that Widow has won this Enkounter. For her winnings, 6 rat on a stick (cook to 165 degrees or with dragon fire!) A fancy cedarwood rare larder!, 10 chef's special omelets, a dozen muffins, a rather large lump of lead, a set of rare plate vambraces, a supreme sacrificial knife from the home of the Spider King, legend has it that this knife was once used to sacrifice The last remaining door to door shoe salesman from Newtown!, and finally.... a bag of nails.
  18. I have updated the WSA to be clear'er' Hope it helps. https://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/168510-wurm-service-announcements/&do=findComment&comment=1807907 Platyna... can't say I understand. Any important rules and updates will always be in the GM Hall. Oh, you mean discussion on them... ehh.... will let the team think on it.
  19. the first and second sound fine, the third... is likely fine but do nto take htis as final say on that one yet. I will work on clarification (with or without my typographically incorrect words)
  20. Fight/Shield Skill Gaining Without Resistance It is possible to devise scenarios with unintended methods to enter combat with creatures, with the intention to gain skills, that prevent the creature from being able to do normal harm to you and your equipment, or prevent yourself from doing normal intended harm to the creature. Such scenarios are clearly not intended and can lead to the permanent ban of your avatars when caught using such a method. The targeting of a distant creature while in combat with another creature does not fall into the unintended category as this not much different than selecting your chosen target when begin attacked by multiple creatures.. Your choice of equipment does not fall into the unintended category, unless of course it creates an unexpected never before seen result. Overriding your combat actions against a creature with non hostile actions (ex. taming) is not considered unintended The type of things that do fall into unintended, would be like using a building, or fence, or mine, or the like to give you or the creature an invulnerable like state while gaining skills. Several people have been caught and penalized for this activity in the past and recently several others were penalized after the activity was detected. If you ever encounter a scenario like this or ANY scenario of unattended skill gain with or without the use of a macro, you should report it so it can be promptly looked into and officially replicated for testing and correction. Thank You, Wurm Online Team
  21. The Developers are looking into the matter, but this will be resolved soon. I cannot give an estimated time, but it should not take long depending on what the issue is. So far this only affects purchases made with PayPal via the regular shop. All other methods are working as normal. All purchases made should show up fairly quickly once the Developers finish looking into the matter.
  22. We have recieved a number of tickets on this issue, and we are aware that something is going on. The Devs are looking into it, but for everyone affected, if you do not receive your purchase within the day, please email payment@wurmonline.com with the paypal transaction number, the avatar name it was purchased on, and the item purchased. We will get you taken care of!
  23. Cheers:D

    I know we have come a long long way Rolf, but... I don't know it just feels so sacrilegious to flip the switch on your avatar! *flips switch* I never said I wasn't cruel and evil.... It's good that you are still hanging around though. You are after all a deity here! Cheers Rolf!
  24. Today I managed to ensnare Skyefox in my devi... I mean ingenious game when the randomizer landed me on Independence! The following harrowing game unfolded
