Friendship Bay Summer Impalong 2020 (Friend-A-Long)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here we are again, and its almost that time of the year again for the annual Summer Friend-A-Long! This event is brought to you by Dragon Beard Markets, the Academy Network Alliance of Pristine, and random donors like you out there!  This years Event will be held July 24th to the 29th. Hopefully this window will allow most folks the chance to attend and join in and the foolery of it all. 


Some of you may be asking what is an Imp-along? Well basically is a community event where everyone gets together to imp and cast for each other for free! Anyone can come, anyone can help imp. Often people just come to grind there skill for free. You don't have to be able to get to 70q imps, just do what you can and someone else will finish up the work! The only real restrictions is on channeling skill to help prevent shattered items. Made some changes to the deed based on feedback. Build a whole new arena that is designed around accommodating val and jackal mobs. I build a new tower for "Wurmian Lawn Darts" this year now that I know people have no problems flinging themselves to there likely death for prizes.We have collected a massive amount of materials, cotton, body bags, booze and prizes.  I hope to see you all at turn up for the fun and games this year! Were going to commemorate the new arena with something special this year.... As I always say, If you didn't die at the imp-along you did it wrong!


Please keep and eye on this thread as i will be updating it regularly with details of events, changes, whatever....

  • When: July 24th- 29th 2020 
  • Where: Pristine, T16, Friendship Bay deed.
  • Map: - In game Map location.
  • Map:
  • You can also plot to Friendship Bay from the highway network nearly anywhere on pristine.


Imping Materials:

All materials provided will be stocked in the resource carts next to each station, the general public will not have access to the bulk of materials, please try to NOT COMBINE tiny lumps like silver, gold, electrum, and the like for imping larger items like weapons and shields. Material usage will be alot higher, and we will get alot less imps out of the total stock of that material, less used is more for everyone! if you need a refill on something please ask in local or a "Wurm Lord"  for refill.


Getting YOUR items imped:

As mentioned before be sure ALL your items are correctly named with your character. Find the station relavent to the skill required for your equipment. for example Hammers in Blacksmithing, Swords in Weapon smithing etc. Most are pretty obvious. Some of the most commonly misplaced items are:

Carving Knife, Sickle, and Scythe witch are actually Weapon smithing.

(Cooking) Knife and Leather Knife are actually Blacksmithing.

New fishing rods are Fine carpentry, and the legacy rods are Carpentry

Fishing Reels are Jewelry Smithing, with the exception of the deep water reel witch is Blacksmithing


What to bring:

Anything you want Imped, Casted, unique bloods mixed, imbues applied, Items needing mendings, etc, if it can be improved we can prob handle it here.


What is expected of you as a patron:

  • Be polite and be respectful!
  • Don't forget to put your characters NAME ON ALL YOUR ITEMS! Cant stress this enough. Anything not properly named is likely to be lost or stuffed in an overflow bin, and once moved with no name, there is basically no way to identify it as yours. Please try and remove your items promptly once imped/casted to avoid having your items secured in overflow. You do NOT need to label them with what cast/imp you want, just your name. Just make sure you place them in the correct container.
  • Do NOT abuse people's generosity! Don't bring 10 or even 5 of the same item for imping/casting. The only real exception to this might be horse shoes. Anyone caught taking advantage will forfeit there items and be asked to leave. And the veteran impers do know what to look for, i removed almost 100 items last year due to abuse, and it was veterans who tipped me off. 
  • Do NOT sell items that were done for you at the impalong. Its about helping people out, not taking advantage of someone else's work to put coin in your pocket.
  • Getting items casted is at your own risk! Thoe the priest will be required to have at least 70 channeling and demonstrate so with there 70+ title. Shatters can and will happen at an event like this. Item quality plays a big in this so if your going to get something casted, consider imping it first. If an item is shattered, and its reproducible on site, feel free to ask someone with skill to re craft it for you.
  • You should not need to pick any items up that are not your (nor will you be able to inside a building) If your items are moved to overflow please contact a "Wurm Lord" Items are only returned to the character named on it!
  • Also feel free to help imp items even if you don't have that skill to 70. The only real restriction is channeling. Everyone is welcome to help out! Consider this an opportunity to grind your skills and no expense to you other then time. Mats and favor are provided so go crazy imp or cast all the things!
  • When you complete and imp or cast please call it out in local to the owner something like "/me VirusMD your pickaxe imp is done!" This should help keep things flowing particularly for items waiting to receive multiple casts.
  • Please check on your items frequently when possible to avoid having them moved into overflow storage.


What is expected as an Imper or Caster at the Friend-A-Long:

  • All of the above +
  • Please name your lumps/materials if you have to put them back in the forge etc
  • 70+ in your imping skills of choice is recommended but feel free to chip in with whatever skills you have for imping.
  • 70+ Channeling skill is required to be permitted to cast on other people's items. You should be sure to wear your 70+ channeling title



Sermons are volunteer led, if you wish to participate in the sermon group please ask for a sermon team invite in local, and get further information for slotting inside that channel.


What we still need:

 Some materials are still needed, but mainly its down to prizes prizes prizes! Anything you think might make a good prize. Ships, rares, Kingdom Flags, Hota's Arch statues, Sleep Powder, Skins, etc.... You get the idea. Donations are recorded and accredited here on the thread and announced when given away in case you want to make a donation for a service thread etc. If your interested in coming PLEASE make a post listing the skills your interested in working, and if you need a room be sure to include your character(s) names.


Friendship Inn and Lounge:

Need a place to sleep off a hard days work? Hide from a GM (good luck), or just get out of the way? The Friendship inn and Lounge, has a pleasant little relaxation area on the room with a wide variety of booze for you discerning wurmian hooligans. The inn is capable of bedding 80 characters in 70 secure rooms with storage options. If you need a secure room for your stay please make a post requesting a room, be sure to include your character(s) names in the post. There is also a large piece of land set aside for "Tent City" Just outside the inn on the sandy beach area next to the docking (parking) slips on the East end of the event location.

The Deed:

The imping hall itself it a 5 floor (3 double floors) pottery building with slate/marble decor. Broken into 3 floors dedicated to various tasks. The First floor is the now the casting/sermon area, I've broken all the spells into 4 main groups, based on the spell/priests that cast it. each group has at least 2-4 dedicated altars PER priest for that category, the more common priest like Vynora/Fo. So no worries about tripping over each other at the altar! All organized into corners, In the center of it all is another ring of altars, surrounding a rare altar for the sermon goers, and the building is designed in such a way, that everyone below you should be counted as listeners for HUGE faith ticks!in the corners you will find some relaxing area's to afk/get out of the way in along with stairwells to the other floors. The second floor is for Non smithing related imps, broken into 4 main area's depending on the skill used. The 3rd is now the forge area based on feedback from previous years. Mainly smoke in the face of folks working on the second floor, the forge area is 24x forges nestled together in a large group in the center 


At this time we have about 1.1 Million Favor worth of veggies ready to go! Want to help chop? no? good! we don't need you!, because@ChampagneDragonis amazing and did nearly ALL the chopping, with some support from Ladygodiva! Apparently she likes doing this, so yah, amazing! Champagnedragon also does it for your precious silvers, so if you need stuff veggies, need them chopped chopped or just want some cordage, look no further then her! Great attitude, very fast, great rates. And a special thanks to the group of dedicated farmers to help with the job of growing 200k veggies.... Then 200k more when they nerfed them.... Ouch! Thanks to Almostsolitude, Morde, Dragonshearts, Ladygodiva, and prob some more I forgot about for tending the absurdly large 5 field 2600 tiles of farmland we were tending.


Ship Imps:

The WEST end of the deed is where docks are located for people who would like there ships imped as well. Please do not park here if your ship is over 70q, and Please move your ship once it has been imped help keep congestion down in the area for the impers.


Ship Parking:

The EAST end of the deed houses several new docking teirs that will house many ships, if your ship does not need to be impled please be sure to park on the EAST side of the deed, where "Tent City" is located just East of the Friendship Inn and Lounge.


Blood Mixing:

We have a large supply of source salt  for potion making, so feel free to bring your bloods for mixing. Hopefully well get a couple high skill volunteers who can do them for us! Got a nice NS and Alchemy? drop me a line here or PM me if your willing to help out with mixes and imbues.

Huzzah!  Looking forward once again to this fine event  after such a wonderful experience last year!  Need to look at my stocks, but will bring a few crates over in the next few days to help with the material gathering.  No need to tie up a room as I'm just across the bay.

Happy to help with:  LW,  JS, BS, Carp, and FC.


And of course, please put ol' Auntie Sid down for the blood work.  Quite possibly my favorite part of last year's event and looking forward to it again. 😈

ETA: Anacrusis will be in tow to help with sermons and Vynora enchants as well.

I had thought to bring a smith and a channeler to help out with this but since I can't even stand being around the horses on my deed with these ridiculous animations being forced on at all times I doubt I could manage 10 minutes at an impalong before my head explodes and I run away screaming. If I do somehow manage to tolerate it I'll help out with various stuffs (c/fc, ws/bs, masonry/pottery, vyn casts) but let's not anyone hold their breath.

Yay. Love Impalongs. 


I will be coming with my two characters:


Zachariah - Blacksmithing, Weaponsmithing, plate armor smithing, carpentry, and cloth tailoring all above 70 possible. 


Nagini - Vynnora priest. Currently doesnt have 70 channeling (maybe by the time the impaling happens) but can be used for a battery and sermon listener. 


I would also be willing to help out as a volunteer or member of staff. I have held and or been part of a few impalongs in my years. Just PM me.
