My apologies for the lack of posts lately, but these things happen I suppose. I’m going to try to post date the days I forgot to write on and catch up. Not that I really have anything exciting to say, but I’m sure I can come up with something.
I bought some flags off of Rudie (who is leaving the game apparently) that you can no longer get on Deliverance (or any of the Freedom servers). They look nice and hopefully (since I can not repair them) they take their time in decaying. I bought three in total, two more are at my deed Thorin’s Bay, sitting on the docks. I wish there were more decorative items available in Wurm Online, there are a few, but not enough to really personalize an area. Sure you can terraform an area to personalize it, but working the land is not really my thing (which is why I bought Thorin’s to begin with, it was already mostly ‘completed’ and then I could work on adding my own personal touches).
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately on what I’d like to do with Les Reveurs. The deed currently has three houses, and a nice fenced area for horses. That’s about it. Well, a fountain too and an extensive mine area. I don’t want fields or animals kept on the deed because it’s my ‘get away from it all’ deed where I quietly work on skills and some times I don’t visit it for a week or two – it would be no good to return only to see all of my crops (or animals) dead.
The area with the houses and fences are not exactly flat, I’ve left the land as ‘natural’ as possible that still enabled me to build on it – which means the over all effect is a bit wonky when you first look at it, but then it sort of grows on you (at least it does on me). It has ‘country charm’ which I really like, surrounded by massive trees on the top of a mountain (also makes it difficult to get to which I enjoy for privacy sake). It does require a few more double doors I suppose. My main craft building is still made of single doors, where as my ‘warehouse’ has double. I wish we had the ability to create lakes on mountains, but digging down to the water line would take forever, and create nothing but an ugly pit in the middle of the hill. Ah well.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
