What's an Impalong?

It's a community event that's hosted on someone's deed, where crafters and priests from across Wurm join together to improve/enchant others' gear for free. In addition to the imping/enchanting, there are various other things such as games and events, prize giveaways, contests, and sometimes even GM's drop in to spawn a few mobs on unsuspecting Impalong-goers.

 

The Deed

The deed is outfit with a variety of accommodations to facilitate the running of the Impalong. The crown of the deed is the main Impalong hall centered in the deed, that provides 3 floors for crafters and priests to do what they love best. Next is the mighty Blackmoor Arena, a sprawling set of stone walls and halls set around Blackmoor Castle, with the purpose of providing ample room for both spectators and the epic battles between the gladiators that entertain them. Lastly, there is the Freedom Towers, an imposing pair of structures that are able to take in up to 100 Wurmians, all housed in their own personal rooms. Amenities include a bed, along with a wardrobe, nightstand, and coffer for storage of belongings.

Rules

Spoiler

Item Placement:

  • Name your items before placing them into improvement/casting coffins or forges!
  • Double-check which coffin or forge you should place your items in, and place them there.
  • Pick up your finished item as soon as possible to make space for new items.
  • If space is running short, Impalong staff will move finished items to "Overflow" bins. You will need to contact Impalong staff in order to retrieve your items.

Improvements/Enchanting:

  • Quality items are improved to is at the discretion of the imper, but the minimum anything will get imped to is 70ql; if you want higher quality than arrange that via PM with an imper but ensure first that there is not a backlog of other items to be imped first.
  • Only items that are 70ql+ will be cast on(unless they are skiller items).
  • Place your items into the coffin labeled with the enchantment you want. YOU are then responsible for moving the items to other coffins to receive other enchantments.
  • Getting your items enchanted is at your own risk!

Other:

  • Do NOT abuse the system by bringing in a dozen items of the same time to get improved/enchanted. If that occurs the items are forfeit, and will be confiscated then tossed into the volcano out back(yes, we have one).
  • Do NOT abuse the system by bringing placing in extra items of the same type, save for certain things like arrows or horseshoes.
  • Do NOT sell items that you've gotten improved/enchanted. The pro-bono work done here is not so you can make a profit, so if that is your intention you are not welcome here.
  • Turn OFF your personal lightsources like lanterns or torches! It helps with the lag.
  • If you have any issues contact Shrimpiie or TheRedReaper ingame or on the forums.

We are back baby!

 

Plenty of updates and changes to the site and how it will be run.

 

Updates: October 5th

Spoiler

 

First and foremost, the event timer cannot be posted yet, since it only goes to 60 days, and the Impalong is 62 days away as of this post so soon as I can I will get that set up... The main banner and the picture of the Impalong structure itself are recycled from last year for the sake of getting this thread up and running, updated pictures will be arriving soon.

 

Secondly, we have more improvement materials than ever this year, with thousands of lumps for imping with, and over a 1/4 Million favor for use by the priests to enchant everything from your favorite sword to your tidy whities!

 

Thirdly, the second Inn structure has been built, so that in total Blackmoor can house up to 100 Wurmians, each with their own room. The other important detail to note with the inns is that permissions to add people to the inn will no longer be held by only a couple of Impalong staffers and myself, but instead by ALL the Impalong staffers. The goal is to make sure there is as close to 100% availability for folks to contact someone so they may be assigned a room, where last year folks had to wait hours or even days to speak to someone about attaining a room, and at that things were so hectic that many folks who had even reserved rooms early were left without a room. Hopefully this is corrected this year.

 

Fourthly, the list of impers and Impalong staffers is small right now as I have not contacted a lot of folks as to if they will be able to help or improve, but the list will grow larger I promise!

 

Fifthly, Impalong staffers this year will have access to everything from the cookhouse to the Inns, to the main structure itself, so that they are able to fill in wherever and attendees won't have to rely on just a handful of folks with scattered play times to get things done.

 

Sixthly, the prize lists are short, but I am currently in the process of acquiring a wide variety of prizes that will quintuple what folks can win by luck or skill.

 

Seventhly, I am fielding ideas for more Impalong games/activities, so write in your suggestions, and we will see what we can put together. OR, if you would like to run an event that is entirely welcome, just contact me with it's information, and I will get it listed here along with a date to run it.

 

Eighthly, donations are ALWAYS accepted even if we have it already; and no prize is too small or big to add to a gift list or random giveaway as well!

 

Ninthly, no imping station is ever full, there is always room, so don't be intimidated if the trade you want to partake in has a lot of folks.

 

 

Updates: November 9th

Firstly, the final shipment of favor has finally arrived, so we are now in possession of a wooping 250,000 favor in the form of 50,000 veggies for use for the priests, by the priests!

 

Secondly, we are still getting many donations in for various items, and all will of course be put to use as prize options or random giveaways.

I've put in a time off request at work, if it gets approved, I'll have my three avies available for Impalong fun!

Dorian will be available for imping.  My carpentry, fletching, and fine carpentry are the highest at this moment, but if any of my skills are needed, pop me where I'm needed, I'm happy to help.  Here is my current skill set... https://niarja.com/skill_compare/Dorian

I will also sail down my two priests; Flunky, a Fo priest with 100 faith, but only 56 Channeling, so a happy battery for others with better skills, and Bellamin, a Vyn Priest, with 96 faith and 62.7 channeling (right this red hot second).

If I can't the time off of work, I'll try to at least have the priests online 24/7 during the impalong for sermons and such.

Dor's highest skill is as a farmer, and I have some decent HFC and butchering skills so if some more crops are needed for noms or favor or stock, let me know, I have some farmland and I'm happy to plant and harvest veggies or cotton and wemp to fill up FSB/BSB's.  =)

I usually leave that up to the priests who are online to work out among themselves as things tend to change day by day so keeping anything updated with sermon information is near impossible.

Nothing much changes day by day at sermons, only the names on the sermonlist, as people come and go.

Will you provide materials for saccing for the casts?
