Hate to keep cluttering this thread with questions, but what are the ethical norms for the server? I see stuff that appears to be dropped by players but sometimes I get a message that picking up anything is theft / bad karma / illegal; other times something is clearly a part of a deed and my guess is the deed owner sets permissions; but I also found things like a small plot of wheat - no deed. I did not think cutting the wheat would have a big impact, since it will just re-grow, but did not do it, since it might be considered bad.

 

If something looks abandoned, not on deed and no signs of recent activity nearby - it's fair game.

 

You can also use the help channel in game / discord (they are connected) for questions, usually either myself or someone else will be around to answer.

Server Update – 22/11/2019

  • Halloween event is over, existing ominous gravestones will remain in game until cleared but new ones will no longer spawn.
  • Fixed a bug with moving village tokens that caused them to become invisible when moved over a long distance.
    • If you have a token that’s currently invisible you’ll need to move it again for it to become visible.

Merry Christmas everyone!

 

Santa and julbords are now available at each spawn town and you can get your presents!

 

The present for this year is a Festive Chest – a special bigger and cooler version of a magic chest, and it comes with a new snowman inside!

This snowman when placed on your land will produce a snowball once in a while… and sometimes other items too.

 A new map named “Nysa” is coming to Otherlands on Friday, August 14th at 17:00 UTC! (13:00 EDT / 10:00 PDT)

Initially the server will be available to new characters only, and you will be starting completely naked. You can read about how to start without anything in wurm here:  http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Crude_tools
During the launch period travel and mail to/from Nysa will not be available from existing serves. There will be special unique titles, achievements and other rewards available during that time!

The server will have 5 dragons spawned at launch, once those are killed (or a month passes without them dying) the server will be connected to the rest of the cluster and normal travel will be available by boats and portals.

Hope to see you all there!

Server Update - 07/08/2020 


Tents can now be dropped on deed by citizens


You can now sleep in tents and hay piles


Tents can be used to sleep outdoors and will give you 75% of the sleep bonus you would earn sleeping in a bed


Hay piles can only be used indoors and will give 50% of the sleep bonus you would earn sleeping in a bed


Canopy beds will give 25% more sleep bonus compared to normal beds


Sleeping in/on rare (or higher) items will give 20% more sleep bonus per level of rarity


Sleeping in/on high quality items will give 10% more sleep bonus at 70+ QL and 25% more at 90+ QL


Fixed a vanilla bug that allowed to sleep on items you shouldn’t normally be able to.

 

 

 

Town portals have a new model (special thanks to angie!) and a slightly tweaked crafting recipe


Lava will no longer freeze down in focus zones (like the rift islands or new volcano on Nysa)

 


Additional details on Nysa launch

Web map for Nysa is now available here: https://otherlands.bdew.net/map/nysa/

 

Character Creation

You can create a character on Nysa by logging to Otherlands PVE Cluster with a new name and picking “Nysa – Freedom PVE (Character creation only)” from the creation screen.

Once created your name will be reserved and you’ll be able to play that character once the server is open.

 

Special rewards

During the launch period all characters created on Nysa will receive the “Explorer” title and unlock a special “A Fresh Start” journal tier.

 

A Fresh Start requires the following achievements for completion:
Reach 70 FS
Visit the Hellmaw Volcano and examine a boulder
Complete a mission from one of the gods
Equip a magic ring or necklace
Reach 90 in any skill
Kill a Dragon
Kill a Warmaster

 


If you manage to complete all the above during the launch period you will receive the “Conqueror” title and a supreme blueprint.

The blueprint can be used to begin construction on one item from the following list (that will be guaranteed to be of supreme quality):


Large Cart or Wagon
Sail Boat or any of the bigger ships
Forge or Oven
Floor Loom
Chicken Coop
Guard Tower
Altar (wood)
Magic Planter (stone)

I'm still deciding -- do you think it's worth it to join Nysa since I know I won't be able to log on until about a week after launch?

Hmm would depend on your goal, if it is purely to be a fighter in the unique slayings then totally. If you want to be the main crafter for a specific skill then probably be a little late.

Within a week i would expect to be well over 70fs with 60-70ql gear, depending on server action and skill values, I don't recall seeing them anywhere  *shrug*

Two hours to go!!

 

Who has their perfect spot picked out?

 

Who might beat them to it?

edit: what a perfect launch!

 

Starting naked (no items/armor/weapons, making crude tools and killing hellcats for charcoal) is actually quite fun on a 10x/10x server!
