  1. The smaller sized Arboretum Test server will be closing on October 3 at 2000 AEST (10am UTC). We are very happy to announce that a larger sized, 4096*4096 custom map server called "Arboretum" has been successfully added to the Gobbler's Banquet server to form a server cluster. Players are able to travel freely between the two servers. The starting server is the Gobbler's Banquet. An existing avatar on the Gobbler's banquet server or a new one formed there may be taken to the Arboretum server. Avatars formed on the Arboretum test server will be lost. An important aspect of the Arboretum Challenge is actually locating the server. Exploration of the Gobbler's Banquet server will be necessary. The Arboretum server provides a more difficult Gobbler requests list. On this server the player needs to plant trees using foraged sprouts to grow forests for lumber. Trees may be grown slowly, or more quickly using the spells available in the game. Both servers have all activities available to priests. The Arboretum buildings function on both servers. The Gobbler's Banquet and newly attached Arboretum servers will be running for another 12 months, given no unforeseen circumstances . Arboretum Server Map
  2. The guard tower is built in the usual fashion with planks, stone bricks and clay. The player activates the berry, nut, fruit or flower sprout in their inventory and clicks on the graphic of any exisiting guard tower (which is now called an "Arboretum") to obtain a menu. As well as retaining the old guard tower functions such as repair, the menu now has another new option to "plant a sprout", so I think your interpretation is right. The tower takes the sprout and a 20 minute timer commences. After that the Arboretum may be harvested. With 5 "Guardeners" and good gardening skill 15 to 20 berry, nut, fruit or flowers may be harvested. If the player wants to harvest earlier than 20 minutes the message reports the current waiting time. When no sprout is activated in inventory the menu allows a 'Guardener's choice to be planted, with no sprout cost. The message reports what the Guardeners chose. The wait still remains 20 minutes to harvest. The distance between Arboretums has now been reduced to 25 tiles. The changes mean that instead of traveling near or far to harvest, a modest amount may be done right at camp. The amount of clicking is significantly reduced because the Arboretum has become a production building. At some later stage upgrades may be introduced to make it a more effective production building. For example perhaps some additional piles of dirt could be added to the building to encourage a better yield. It also means a product may be harvested in any season which is relatively important because it allows a response to a Gobbler request in 20 minutes, so long as the sprouts are obtained beforehand. Regards from Pam.
  3. Hospital Challenge A virus has been detected on both the Frenetia and SantasReindeer servers. There are estimated to now be approximately one thousand of them spread randomly on each server. Visible at a distance of 16 tiles, they are easily recognizable, being gold in colour and floating above the ground. At this stage it seems likely that it can be contained. The viri do not cause serious illness, however significantly reducing the amount of them will be needed for the players to win the hospital challenge. As well as plenty of coins, gems and high quality tools, each treasure chest now contains one Antibody starter kit. The crafting window has the recipe to make an antibody. They are expensive to build, requiring many items such as herbs and mushrooms. The antibody does not damage, so they can be used multiple times on a virus reducing trip. Players may like to be prepared just in case treatment is needed. A special "Hospital bed" can now be built. These beds behave like other beds, allowing sleep bonus to be gained whilst offline. Part of the Hospital bed's equipment includes an antibody. Building a Hospital bed anywhere on the server will increase the player's personal experience and contribute points towards the challenge. To win the challenge each server will also need to build its own Coronia Park 5 bed hospital. HealthElf has made a start on the SantasReindeer Server's hospital, at the south end of Santa's island, near the bridge.
  4. The Gobbler's Banquet Game : Entree During the Entree of the Banquet we are trialing a new style of Gobbler play. There will be 4 active Gobbler items on the player's personal Gobbler list at any given time. At the end of each ingame hour the oldest item drops off the list, having been there for four player ingame hours. The other items each age by an hour. Each hour a new potential Gobbler item appears, broadcast in the new "Gobbler" Chanel. To get the new item on the Player's personal Gobbler list the player may choose yes or no to that item. (This is not automated yet, so the player needs to do their own recording.) If the player chooses yes, the chosen item is placed on the personal Gobbbler list and the player has four ingame hours to make and donate what they are able to of that item. If no is chosen the player needs to wait another hour to see what the next published item is. On the third try that item will need to be placed on the personal Gobbler list. If it cannot be done the chain will break and the player needs to start again. At this stage we don't have automation. The player needs to keep their own documentation. For us step one is getting the fully automated list broadcasting, so we have a viable solo player game. Time keeping will be personal. At the end of the play session or going away from keyboard, the player needs to record how many minutes are left in the hour after the most recent chosen Gobbler item. They may resume at any time using the minutes left recording. If the player forgets to record, make an estimate of it. For item collections and scoring contact Pam. Eventually we will have Gobbler Containers to donate into. The player will be able to teleport the Gobbler Container to their location at any time. These containers will be upgradeable in the future so more complex items can be donated in the second half of the Banquet. So long as even one item is made and donated the player's Gobbler chain continues. For a larger score more items and higher quality items will be taken into account. Rarity of item also contributes to the score. The player's Gobbler level will be calculated using chain lengths and scores. Entree commences Friday 7 February.

  9. Enjoy faster travel around Frenetia. Build your new yacht, the Trip ship. This ship looks just like a sailing boat, except that the fancy rigging is of a randomly chosen saturated colour, such as aqua or lime and allows a constant speed of 36 kmh, regardless of the prevailing wind conditions. A special winged keel has been developed which has two adjustable wings to control the water flow, giving the Trip ship stability, even in gales. The capacity of the Trip ship is up to 5 large crates and 2 creature cages, making it a versatile trading vessel.
  10. Merry Christmas everyone. Aren't the snowman statues great. Please let me know if you would like a HotA statue and if so which one. We haven't automated it yet so Acacia will be placing it in your cart near your token. You will likely find us on Santa's Reindeer server. This is our new event server of approx 1000 * 1000 tiles, all flat and treeless. The objective is to deliver a reindeer to Santa's island across a small sea via cart or boat with a creature transporter. Players start with nothing in inventory. There are a few approaches. One is to quickly find treasure maps which have tools and shrub logs. Another is to bootstrap using foraged shards and expose some rock. Mines may be made via cement raised rock. Trees can be planted via foraged sprouts and grown quickly using spells. Good luck!

  12. Q Fishing has arrived. Version one allows queuing of fishing actions with some limitations. The client does not draw a fishing line. Make sure you have a tackle box with plenty of bait. You will see a Q Fishing option in the line up on the right click menu. The fishing happens when and where you click, there is no casting wait-time or message. Check in the event window to see it is a valid place to fish and set your queue. Some attention is still required, for example the Q will come to an abrupt halt if the line snaps. Q fishing may be bound to a shortcut key. Fishing is as per usual if Q Fishing is not selected.
