Lunalong 2019

Recommended Posts

Welcome To the 2nd Lunalong

iN93HgC.jpg

Greetings friends, I would like to cordially invite you all to the second Luna-a-long.  Hosted by Dracaa (myself) on my deed named Kappa, on the Xanadu server, at coordinate Q-15.  This is my second time hosting an impalong. I've been working on this since last year. With work in real life only slowing me down. I'm proud to say though, my impalong is almost ready.  It will be this November 8th to the 17th. I hope to have the maze finished and ready to explore, there will be a few small events, and all the imping madness you've come to expect from events like this.

So why name kappa? 

Spoiler

The name Kappa has a history though I don't know all of it in this game.  It means a few things to me however, Kappa is a creature in another game i played before Wurm called "Harvest Moon".  In that game you give Kappa a cucumber it comes out and thanks you. Some say Kappa is a demon and I have had a few people tell me its a Greek liter but to me, it's my Wurm home I bought from another player who later became a great friend. I have become good friends with all my neighbors. 

 

Why a Lunar Festival?

Spoiler

In real life, I love the moon ever since I was a little girl. In Wurm there are few moons each one special in its own right. In Harvest Moon, there are seasonal festivals every month and one of my favorites was the lunar festival. So instead of linking it with Halloween,  or Christmas, and since it happens in November, in the USA we have Thanksgiving, but all those holidays get a lot of stuff for them anyway. My dear friend Leander and i were brainstorming one night and he said something about the moon or create something individual and this is what we got. I love it too. And hope you all love it too.

 

But what is a Luna-a-long?   

Spoiler

The simple answer is its an Impalong. "but I'm new to Wurm, what is an imp-a-long?" you say, well my friend Shrimpiie defines it perfectly.

he explains it as "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."

 

Rules 

Spoiler

   Item Placement:

  • Rename your items with your name before placing them into improvement/casting coffins, shelves or forges!
  • Please be sure to place your item in the right named coffin, shelves or forge.
  • 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" shelves. If placed there you will need to contact Impalong staff in order to get your items.

 

Improvements/Enchanting:

  • Items will be improved to 70ql at the discretion of the of the imper. If you want higher you can pm the imper and ask as long there isn't a backlog of items to be imped.
  • Only items that are 70ql+ will be enchanted on, or if named to be a skiller items.
  • Place your items into the coffin labeled with the enchantment you want. You have to move them to the next coffin if you want another enchantment on them.
  • Getting your items enchanted is at your own risk! Items can break in the process of being enchanted.

 

Other:

  • Do NOT being a dozen items of the same type to get improved/enchanted.
  • You can bring a quiver of arrows or 4 horseshoes to be improved/enchanted.
  • Do NOT sell items that you've gotten improved/enchanted here. If we hear you have done that you won't be welcome the next year impalong.
  • Please turn off your personal light-sources like lanterns or torches! It helps with the lag for everyone else.
  • If you have any issues contact Dracaa in-game or on the forums.

I may show up here, depending at my working hours .
Most likely will there longer at the first weekend.

If I do so, I'll bring in the main (same name as here) who's able to do CAS (76), Carpentry (88) and Black smithing (80) and to a lower level Fine Carp (56), Shipbuilding(58) and WS (50).
I'll also bring in my alt, Frodobaggins, who's able to do LW (84) and cloth tailoring (60)

 

Thorin :)

My plan this year:

  • 1. First off. It's very simple. I'm not here to complain or cause drama. I'm here to imp and get skill. In the end, getting my skills up IS the reward.
  • 2. That said, I showed up to the lunalong last year and I was working on BS items. I ended up getting my BS to 97 skill thanks to last year's lunalong and impalong.
  • 3. This year, I'm shifting my focus to PAS as my skill is currently 94. I would like to get that skill up to where my BS is before I switch to Jewelry Smithing or Shield Smithing next. This means I do not plan on doing BS imps this year.
  • 4. As my health continues to degrade and I'm fast approaching a 3rd liver transplant surgery, I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to attend this year's lunalong if by bad luck I end up in the hospital ER again. Otherwise, I will be there!
  • 5. Any tips are greatly appreciated for my imping services but definitely not required. If things work out and I'm able to attend on the last day, I will do like I did last year and focus on getting people's rares up to 91QL.
  • 6. I'll be bringing my two priests, Mylulv (Vynora; 100 faith) and Worldtender (Fo; 86 faith). Mylulv will just stand around as an extra body for larger sermon ticks and Worldtender will be in attendance until he reaches 100 faith.
  • 7. If I have time to use my priests to perform some casts, I shall do so but if I'm too busy smithing like I was last year, it's too much multitasking for my taste and I'll probably just help when we're running behind on casting.

P.S. I do prefer using a dedicated forge for myself that people can just fill up. That's just how I do things and it's how I did things last year. I focus on everything in one forge and usually I'm busy enough with items going in and coming out that I don't even need to look at the other forges. On rare occasion, I may have to in order to keep working but last year that seldom happened. I worked out of the same forge almost the entire event.

Do you have a list of impers yet? Put me down for PAS (current skill 94.07). My BS is 97.53 so I won't be focusing on that. I may do some low-level JS/Shieldsmithing grinding as I'm 24-25 in those skills if I get tired of doing PAS.

If I reach my goal early with PAS I will shift to low-level (0-50QL) Shieldsmithing/Jewelry Smithing imps. I may also do some Vyn and Fo casts on my priests as time permits.

I've never been to an impalong as I hate traveling too far from my deed.  That said I always love hearing about them. If you or someone going wants to swing by my deed I'll give ya a bunch of barrels of booze to share around. Just let me know!

Lol Thanks Cecci.

I did a look through my main wine barrel racks and looks like I have 15 barrels of moonshine, 4 barrels of vodka, 9 barrels of whiskey I can spare with out dropping too low.  Should all be atleast 90 ql and just a rough guess 20 or 30 barrels of various ales 60 to 70 ql.  Might have more but my last batches something went wrong and came out way too low of quality.  Ain't letting anyone drink that swill.

Is an impalong not Oktoberfest what are we gonna do with all that booze?:)

 

L.E. Also nowadays you can attend without having to travel as priests can summon soul you on location then all you need is a neighbour or own priest to summon soul you back when the impalong is over.

lol that is actually the question I always ask myself when I run down my rows of wine racks.  Maybe we can find out how much booze is needed to kill someone in wurm!

More serious though, from what I understand one of the very few uses for booze is that it raises the difficulty of imping and thus can improve the skill gains at high skill levels.  Since many people come to impalongs to raise their skill while helping others it might be useful for them.  Plus I have no idea what the turn out for these kind of events are >.< Can't have have anyone being left out.

That works only for raising the difficulty of cooking and/or creation spam not for imping.

Ahh then all my booze is even more worthless. If they don't want it they don't have to pick it up though so no harm in offering it.

Thanks for the offer Cecci! I really do prefer to stay home like a hermit. Lol just thought people might enjoy some booze at the event. >.> totally not trying to find ways to get rid of it.  Nope that would be crazy.
