Ost-in-Edhil - The Elven Fortress on Xanadu

Recommended Posts

After getting bored of my quiet little starter deed, I decided to take on a larger scale project in this game. I've picked a spot on the highest mountain I could find in Xan, spent 13 tedious hours getting up there and finally dropped my deed yesterday. Just look at that awesome view! 

 

P.S. I shall be using this thread as a progress update on the deed development and to showcase what I consider Elven in Wurm!

In order to gain access to rock, I've encountered special challenges at this location. While there is rock everywhere below, it's tough to access it without falling to one's doom, so I've started building a mine entrance:

Nice, with a bit of surface mining you'll have a nice sheltered and hidden entrance. :)

 

I'm intrigued as to where on Xan you are, great views. :)

I like your plans and your big thinking.  It's a year or more of work to do what you're planning, so pace yourself and take breaks if necessary.  Getting a priest up there to cast Courier is going to be a huge challenge.  I'll be interested to know how you solve it, so please keep us updated on the Quest for a Mailbox!

Looks like a very nice (and also very ambitious) plan. Good luck with your project!

How are you getting on with the project? :)

It's going well. I'm spending a lot of time on it and starting to see some progress. I'll be doing an update video at the end of the month and after that I'll be doing update videos on the 1st of every month to keep track of my progress! Thank you for your interest in my project, it's amazing to have this kind of community around me :wub:

Good to hear. I have my own project, though not quite as ambitious, always interesting to see what others are up to. :)

 

I will leave the highway construction to your deed, up to you though. ;)

I also am curious to see what happens with your project, I happen to have fun ambling around on another mountain on Xan and am interested in how you bring the Elven style to Wurm! :) Good luck!

As the one who had to live with her through her 5 days of rage getting up the mountaintop, let me answer that for her: 

Day 1: 50 Deaths 

Day 2: 50 Deaths - nowhere near the mountaintop

Day 3: 50 Deaths - 8 hours of playing, 8 hours of dying, 8 hours of torturing Yldrania 

Day 4: A sh*tload of deaths - 5 hours of playing, then ragequitting after dying just a few tiles away from the top

Day 5: Some deaths - 17 hours of playing - Climbing up without any gear but a deed stake in a long, 13 hour single setting endeavour 

 

Why? - you may ask

Because I challenged her to play Wurm and her response was: if I manage to climb on this mountain I will stick around.

 

Now: AJBlack = Wurm Addict

Mission Accomplished

Unfortunately I have to say that Yldrania is quite right. It took me a long time to scout the mountain properly. There was a very steep slope and I had to create a few tiles via surface mining to stand on and regain stamina. But in the end it worked and I got mountain goat way before I reached the top. If you'd like, I can help you ascend any mountain you'd like to deed. I'd love to be able to be of assistance.
