Friendship Bay Summer Impalong 2021 (Friend-A-Long)

Recommended Posts

Its that time of the year again for the 4th (3rd) (2nd) (1st) annual Friend-A-Long! This event is brought to you by Dragon Beard Markets, the Academy Network Alliance of Pristine, and random donors like you! This years Event will be held July 20th to the 25th. 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! Its basically a week long party, packed with all sorts of fun, games, booze, food, death, death, death, and other random events, 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. Please if you want to contribute please make a post including the skills that your want to work with so we can get a generally idea of skill coverage. Be sure to include your characters names as well if you want to register for a room/bed. We have collected a massive amount of materials, cotton, body bags, and prizes. As I always say, If you didn't die at the imp-along you did it wrong!

 

As usual the deed has had some upgrades in terms of storage and prize display this year. The ever generous Ladygodiva produced the mats and built the whole thing!

 

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

*NEW* Discord: https://discord.gg/Q2E46JmHqC Read the rules, use the reaction role (W) to get the Wurm Online role.

 

  • When: July 20th - 25th.
  • Where: Pristine, T16, Friendship Bay deed.
  • Map: https://prnt.sc/jdif1w - In game Map location.
  • Map: http://prntscr.com/svwrts - Terrain View.
  • You can also plot to Dragon Beard from any highway, then just follow the highway a few hundred tiles to the deed.

 

Imping Materials:
All materials provided will be stocked in the resource carts/wagons 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 much higher, and we will get many less imps out of the total stock of that material, less used is more  imps for everyone!
If you need a refill on something please ask in local or a "Wurm Lord" for refill.
This year we will be providing some higher then 70q Materials during the last few days as sort of a reward for those people who stick around and the work flow slows down a bit more.
Expect to see up to 90q Logs, Iron, and maybe leather available for further imps towards the end of the event.

At this time we have about 1.1 Million Favor worth of cordage ready to go! Thanks as usual goes to@ChampagneDragonshe handled all the farming and production of the cordage for the event, favor production is her bread and butter so if you need chopped veggies,  just want yours chopped, or want to buy some cordage, look no further then her!

How to get your items imped, casted or bloods mixed:
So these events work because people enjoy helping each other out, but a very important catch to that is that they do not want to feel abused or taken advantage of! Thoe it may seem like things are hard to track, that would be a mistake to assume. The veteran impers and caster keep a close eye on who is dropping what and taking advantage of peoples generosity. Every event I end up taking peoples items for taking advantage of others (after a fair warning, if its not obvious abuse). The veterans who help out and imp/cast at these things will not hesitate to report suspected abuse if they think there being taken advantage of and I totally encourage this. As soon as they feel taken advantage of these things are dead!
NAME YOUR ITEMS WITH YOUR COMPLETE CHARACTER NAME! Nothing else is needed, just make sure you move it to the correct locations as work progresses. ANY items that are not properly named will be secured and probably forfeit since identification is difficult. Creators tag will NOT be relied on.
To be clear this means bring your existing gear, not create 1 of everything for every alt and bring it for free work., this will almost certainly result in the loss of your items and possible ban from future events.
LIMITATIONS: A couple of weapons, a set of horse shoes, a couple of hammers, 1 of most other items.
Do not create your items on site, particularly with the higher q imping mats. The only times items should be created is to replace shattered ones. So be sure you bring everything!
If you have some unique bloods you would like mixed or applied feel free to bring them as well, please keep it to 10 or less, that should be enough to completely imbue a single tool, If you would like to provide the salt then we can do more mixes.

 

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.
Please keep the number of bloods your having mixed to 10 or less more might be mixable on the last day if there is still salt. This should be enough to get a single tool completely imbued. If you have extra source salt we can mix additional bloods with that.

 

Ship Parking and Imps:

  • If your getting your ship improved PLEASE enable passenger for "Everyone" to help out the impers and prevent accidental drownings. Don't expect your ship to be imped without it.
  • The WEST end of the deed is for people who would like there ships imped as well. Please move your ship once it has been imped help keep congestion down in the area for the Impers.
  • The EAST end of the deed on the beach side near tent city is for general parking. Please do not park in the lane adjacent to the Arena on the east side, it is for prize ships.

 

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. If caught you will be banned from future events.
  • 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:
  • Please do NOT improve items that are not correctly labeled! Instead report them to an admin to be secured. This is considered abuse since we cannot tell whos item is being imped.
  • 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. The final 2 days or so there will be higher q mats available for higher q imps, assuming the workflow is going smoothly.
  • 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.

 

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 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. 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 above 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 the forge area, equppied with 24x forges broken into sections for organization.
  • Drop AND Take are enabled on deed outside of buildings again this year for the purposes of butchering and looting during arena events. Please keep this in mind and do not leave your possessions outside un-attended, if you move more then a few tiles away your items could be taken by anyone. Treat is as in the wild! If Trash becomes a problem I may reconsider this policy and disallow looting. Trash should be burned in a forge or sacrificed in an altar, or placed in one of the trash heaps around deed.
  • If your a visitor of the server and want to take advantage of a maxed out enchanting and rarity window bonus you can join the village, this is also a good option of you forgot to bring a tent! If you would like to join just PM VirusMD to get an invite.
  •  

Secured/Overflow Item Recovery:

  • If one of your items has been moved to overflow please ask a "Wurm Lord" to retrieve it for you. Be sure to tell the the precise name of the shelf its on so they can find it quickly! For example "Casting Overflow SW3" will tell them what floor, what corner and what shelf your item is on. To avoid having your items secured try and make sure your checking on them and moving them as needed so that other peoples work can be processed. Be patient if you need something returned, everyone is a volunteer, and there may not always be someone around to retrieve your item. Any items left over anywhere that are properly named will be mailed back to there owner shortly after the close of the event.

Sermons:

  • 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.

 

Common Item Sorting Mistakes:

Spoiler

As mentioned before be sure ALL your items are correctly named with your character. Find the station relevant 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.

 

Games and Events:
 

Spoiler

Horse Race:
5 Speed horses of same age will be provided, the course has no flags or markers, and has a few minor possible shortcuts or setback.... The race will start just West of the deed on the highway, and continue west, then turining north follow the highway all the way around the bay to Dragon Collar Bridge, the mid point of the bridge is the finish line! Learn the course early so you dont make a fatal mistake!
- Prizes: Winner of each event will win a random prize from the pool, and 1 entry into the "Grand Prize Pool".
- Final Race Prize: Each races winner will have a chance on the final day to race each other again for a chance to win a 90q Saddle and Set of shoes including 90+ WOA casts, and another grand prize entry.

 

Musical Chairs:
Due to the limitations of game we have no music to go by, so you will have to rely on watching local for move/sit/stand commands!
Up to 10 contestants to start, 1 less chair each round, the one standing is eliminated!

 

Prizes:
Winner of each event will win a random prize from the pool, and 1 entry into the "Grand Prize Pool".

 

The Carnage Report:
Gear provided, brains not. A classic battle of superiority, meat bag vs meat bag, for the honor and glory of Dragon Bone Arena!
Prizes: Winner of each round gets 1 entry into the "Grand Prize Pool".
Prizes: If there are multiple matches, the winners of each will fight each other till there is only one, each matches winner claims another
Prizes: Each days final winner will win a random item from the prize pool, plus another "Grand Prize Pool" entry!

 

Wurmian Lawn Darts: (A Friendalong original!)
Climb the tower and hit the target... Doesn't sound so hard does it? I hope you don't get vertigo! A random number is chosen at the start of the jumping group. Each person must attempt to land in that specific cell of the grid below. With some "testing" i believe the fatality rate is about 40%, most take serious or nearly deadly wounds, a lucky few take no damage at all due to the terrain anomalies...
Winners: Each days winners get THREE "Grand Prize Pool" entries.
Victims: Did you die on target or not? Well.... You win a Tombstone custom engraved with your name to be placed on deed! On and bonus, you get 1 Entry into the "Grand Prize Pool".
Winner and Victim? Well hopefully your new brain can add 3 and 1 and come to the conclusion your get 4 entries!


Treasure Hunt: Look around for keys..... I left them somewhere nearby.... ish... maybe.
- Prizes: Various random prizes in each chest, could be several somethings or others from the prize pool *rummages in pockets*

 

Fish Duels: A highlight at any Wurm event! Choose your Weap... Fish... then slap, slap, slap! Until the Wurm lord says one of you win by hitten the chosen secret spot.
Be sure you use autofight so your hits vary or you might have no chance in winning!
- Prize: Something random from the prize pool.

 

Last Gasp (A Friendalong Original): Name suggested by Ankoroth.
Details:
Once upon a time in a land called Wurm some crazy guy named VirusMD on the Pristine server.... Blah blah blah! Long story short, I threw a bunch of pieces of paper in the bay, each paper counts "Grand Prize Pool" Entry.
If you want a chance to win, win, win you will have to swim, swim, swim, and give those eagle-eyes a chance to exercise!
Once you have found an entry simply place your name on it (using rename) and place it in the large MAGIC chest in the battlements building in front of the impalong hall overlooking the arena.
This chest is drop only and no one will be able to remove an item they did not place there.
Only one entry per person, per session! This years entries will be released in smaller batches, some each day, to help spread out the chances of winning. If you get lucky and get one each day that's OK.
On the final day of the event the 24nd at 3 PM, all entries will be sorted a-z placed on a google doc open to all for numbering, then a good old fashion /random will be rolled by the scorpion HOTA in the lobby and winner chosen! Tickets that have not been turned in before the close of the event on the 22nd will have no value!
Boats are ok this year as the search area is much larger!
You may turn in one entry for each day regardless if you were present for there release, the hard part will be finding an older one!

 

The Grand Prize:
As usual the winner of the grand prize pool at the end of the event will win a completely custom made, custom color, 90q, full drake hide suit with custom runes!

Happy to help staff, if by staffing we both mean "help myself to corn refills and bully any priests that seem to be casting on items already above 70, but never actually moving from my casting spot for long"

Only need one bed.

Fragglerock Fo priest, actively grinding, currently 82 channeling with benediction

Salacia Vyn priest 93 channeling plus benediction 

Celaeno Mag priest 74, should have benediction by then, hope to have her to 80 (once I get Frags up to 90, she's next)
