(Deli) A Captain's Hideaway: Great For Great Players

Recommended Posts

Recruitment is currently closed due to me personally not having all that much time for the deed (RL is to blame,) although if you're interested in having somewhere on the West Coast to hermit up then I'd still be happy to help.

Join us on IRC with #Captains

(I'm on IRC all the time but am often afk. Feel free to leave a message as I'll see it.)

 

Captain%27s%20Header%20Image.jpg

I'm opening recruitment for my deed, A Captain's Hideaway. I remember the days when I first started playing Wurm and some of the earlier villages I was at - we had a great time socially. However, since going solo on my own deed, I've been lonely! Seeing as a lot of the deed's ground work has now been done (50%-ish) I feel it's the right time to start to build up another great village.

The deed is placed on the west coast in a calm part of the server (8x 34y.) Local resources include lots of on-deed iron in an ever-expanding mine, clay a short hop across the bay, and the vast forests of Deliverance on the deed's doorstep. The deed is currently 31x31 in size but is in no way land-locked and could easily expand a lot more as more players join the deed. The deed also has a "fleet" of horses at your disposal for carts and trips, an expanding herd of cows for omnoms, and a village sailboat you're welcome to use for whatever trip you may need to take. And did I mention upto 70ql meals cooked for you too?

In terms of villagers, I am very open in what I look for. I'd rather have players with at least a few months under their belt around the deed - it simply isn't cut out to support swathes of relatively new players and I'd rather that newbies went somewhere more specialist - however, for more experienced players whether you've got years under your belt or are just starting to get a good feel for the game, then Captain's is undeniably the right place for you. I know what it's like to live under a repressive, restrictive, inactive mayor - it sucks - as such, I'll do my best to be the exact opposite of those adjectives, so you can get on with enjoying the game you enjoy in an environment where someone else is doing their best to make the game as great for you as possible!

I don't mind what skills you have or want to train. If turning over a load of empty space into farmland to toil away at floats your boat, then sir, float your boat you may! I could list every other possibility in Wurm and how I'll let you do it within reason, but then I'd be here all day... in terms of timezones, I'm GMT and can usually play at least a few hours a day, usually enough to catch most other timezones including US ones online at some point. More about myself (funfunfun!) - I'm mainly a carpenter/terraformer/mason/fighting kinda Wurmian, but also have a 70+ faith mag priest and an (almost) 60+ faith vyn priest. Enchanted grass is available on the house, as well as some enchants. In general, I like to have a balanced set of skills - as such, so does/will the deed - everything can be accommodated. I've played Wurm for a year and a half and don't plan to go anywhere anytime soon, so joining the deed is "safe" so to speak!

More experienced players generally prefer to do their own thing - here, you can! In terms of housing, as above, I aim to be accommodating. There is no real minimum or maximum as to how much space you can have for housing and projects, it simply has to work with the land that's available. I'm happy to expand the deed if necessary too - there is plenty of space to, I simply haven't bothered due to me being the only player at the deed for a while.

Only village rule: be mature. That means don't aggro your peers or go 110% HotS just because someone left something shiny on the floor that you might like for yourself!

Any villager is welcome to help as much or as little as they want to on village projects. Uniquely, you're also more than welcome to contribute ideas and changes too - my mind can only stretch so far, I'd love to get some input from others about things to tweak and add to make the deed better.

And lastly, a word about the deed's status. It is almost fully terraformed and there are many projects under way. These include:

- A 150 tile boat cave ("sailboat garage")

- Ongoing construction work to build a range of main buildings

- Ongoing work to make the deed prettier, with trees, decorations etc.

So, if you're interested in the village, feel free to PM me if you have any questions or want to know more about joining. I also lie when I say that I'm the only person at the deed - I did have 2 villagers, but due to RL issues they haven't been around much. Kinda related - if you're coming back to Wurm after a break and want somewhere to give the game another go then I'm happy to take the risk and let you try it out again here.

To finish, some pics:

Looking at the deed from the south - much of the mountain to the right of this pic is also part of it. Everything else in the near shot is the deed too.

Bump, welcome to Zwei and Orb. Loads more space still and if we start getting lots of villagers then I'd even consider a second deed. :)

I'm always available to PM if you have any questions!! And on IRC we're #Captains.

Bump!


 


Have had loads of new villagers in the past few weeks and I'm really enjoying this... as such, we're considering buying a second deed inland so we can recruit even more :)

I'm very excited to announce the purchase of a second deed, Miya!!


 


Miya is particularly special for a range of reasons. Firstly, it has a lot of flat land - ideal for farming and more room for Captain's to expand to. Secondly, it has a brilliant mine - with access to iron, copper, tin, zinc and lead.


 


It'll be really exciting to continue the successes of Captain's at a second deed too. Expect more updates to follow!


 


And welcome to Alden :)

And welcome to Alden :)

Thanks Chese.

 

If anyone is looking for a village, don't hesitate to ask the good doctor!

There is usually always someone online, and everyone I've met so far has been awesome.

Hoping to get much more up about Miya this week. For now, you'll just have to take my word on it being an incredibly exciting and unique project to build Wurm's first Priest Training Centre. Loads to do here, yet the project has barely started. ;)


 


+ welcome to Alisea :)

Have been away for a week, back in business tomorrow though. I intend to put some stuff up about Miya too, can't wait to start formally recruiting for there too.

As ever, we're always looking for new villagers. :)
