New Festival Cove Halloween Haunted House Impalong 2020

Recommended Posts

*** WORK IN PROGRESS.  I WILL UPDATE THIS POST REGULARLY. ***


INTRODUCTION


Hello Wurmians,

 

Thicket and I, are proud to invite everyone to the New Festival Cove Halloween Haunted House Impalong 2020 on the Independence world.

 

An Impalong is a community event where Crafters (Impers) and Priests from all over Wurm come together to Improve and Enchant player tools for Free.  We all spread the LOVE around in order to improve game experience and knowledge for everyone, so whether you are young or old, this is a type of event to attend!

 

Let me remind everyone that in order to get here, many players dedicated their time for free in order to help create this incredible event!

 

This event will be held from:  Friday, October 23rd, 2020 9:00 AM Central Time through Wednesday, October 28th, 2020 9:00 PM Central Time.

 

If there's items remaining (after October 28th) to be Improved (imped), we will work on them through the Halloween weekend, but our intention is to make this event short-n-sweet:  Get in, Get it done, and Get out.

NEW FESTIVAL COVE

 

New Festival Cove is located at O16 on the Independence map of the Freedom Isles servers.  If you use Albia Maps [ https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EbliOmfbWcK1zhD4t4iYU-Dc18eEr7ZB/edit ], New Festival Cove is located at 30x 44y.  Our website is located at: https://NewFestivalCove.com

 

For older players, New Festival Cove is located where Festival Cove was located - the location of one of Wurm's first Impalongs.  When I first arrived on the shores of Festival Cove 2.5 years ago, it was abandoned and decayed;  but I admit, it was the seven Collosus Statues that caught my eye!  After some research, I learned this site was a very special place, so I took it upon myself to return this area back to its former glory, and throw in some special extras along the way.  I know many players remember this area, so this is my salute to you!

IMPALONG IMPERS


We're looking for individuals interested in helping out with the Improving items (Imping) process.

 

If you are interested, please reply in this Forum post with your Character Name in-game and Skills (above 70) please.

 

Our current Imper list will be updated regularly, but for now it looks like this:

 

[TBD - INSERT IMPER LIST HERE]

 

PRIESTS FOR ENCHANTING AND SERMONS


We need Priests of various religions, such as the Whitelighters (Fo, Magranon, Vynora) and the Blacklighters (Libila).

 

We also need said Priests to spread their word (via Sermons), and we need Priests to Enchant items for everyone for Free.

 

If you are interested, please reply in this Forum post with your Character Name in-game and Channeling Skill (above 70) please.

 

[TBD - INSERT PRIEST LIST HERE]

 

CURRENT INVENTORY


Our current inventory and inventory needs for the event looks like this:

 

Spoiler

Recently, I've received word that Wurm ignores Leather QL for imping, so any QL will work.  Better QL improves success rate, and fails cost material.  So, the good news is, we don't need 5,000 Leather at 70 QL as we expected initally!

 

Favor is the #1 thing we're lacking and we're focused on getting over the next 3 months.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES


In addition to hosting an Impalong, we've thrown in several fun sight-seeing adventures, such as:

- Haunted House like you've never seen before in this game - this is a MUST SEE event;
- Chessboard (we've reimagined the chessboard at the same location in 2012, by adding new chess pieces and adding two cool Overlooks to oversee a game);
- Shipwreck (with a short story);
- Rose's Hedgemaze (with a golden treasure at the end);
- Dye floor (2nd floor of the SW imping building), so you can play with various colors.  This is one of our weak areas, so if you love dying or Dyes, come on over and give us suggestions on how to improve this room;
- Cooking floor (practice your cooking or learn some new recipes while you're here).

 

DONATIONS


At the beginning, we solicited donations for the Haunted House.  For those donations, we placed their name on a Gravestone at the New Festival Cove Cemetery.

 

For others donating for the Impalong, we can also place your name on a Gravestone if you request it and if we can do it (space permitting, of course).

 

Recently, we've received several donations for this event.  They are located here:

 

[TODO - INSERT DONATIONS HERE]

 

If I'm missing something, please let me know, so you get mentioned properly.

 

EVENT SCHEDULE (EVENTS, CONTESTS, PRIZES)


We have ideas on an event schedule, but we would like for this to be more organic, so please tell us what you would like to see for events!  Twilight Sparkle Unicorn Races?!  Hell Horse Races?!  We will update this section soon.

 

PRIZES


Tell us what you would like to see for prizes, as we would like for this to be more organic (as in, I would love responders to this post to give ideas on prizes, rather than top-down, where i tell u the prizes)!  We will also update this section soon.  Be reasonable, of course.

 

CONCLUSION

 

Wurm is waiting... Are you ready?

Great that we get an impalong on Indy after the end of Shrimpiie's. Right a question: did you think to contact Dracaa? Her Lunalong last year was in 2nd week of November, so would be fairly close to your date. Maybe Dracaa might consider starting later to fill the gap Shrimpiie left, and get more distance between the events to allow players and GM to adapt.

 

Anyway, I am checking for the resource list and consider contributing once my recent infrastructure work is done. In that context: Would be great if Magranon's scar highway would be complete at the time of the impalong :) . The connection from other servers, especially from middle south coast of Indy, is quite wanting without, and the seaway to the inner sea is long, especially in (damned) light breezes ;) .

I think she's moving to December to fill the gap Shrimpiie left.  We're all friends.

Reserve a room for Alpengeist please! :)

 

Mystery bags are a cool gift/prize idea I always enjoyed. Load a bag with some various cool goodies; maybe some rare lumps, a few gems, a birthday cake, some unique blood, whatever.

@Alpengeist, you've got room E107.  As for mystery bags, you're welcome to create some to give away for people here.  I love your ideas though.  If you want to donate gifts, such as mystery bags, let us know!
