My First ‘Real’ Slaying

Talk about being in the right place at the right time. I was out doing treasure maps today when Schiann walked into a red dragon (she was out doing treasure maps as well). I was pretty close by, so I offered to help. I told Moumix there was an impromptu slaying taking place, and he managed to get a summon. Faralithe (my Fo priest) was ready to help, so she received a summon and Schiann ran home to get a few more horses.

There were 35 participants, and it was a lot of fun. It was also the first time in 12 years that I got to participate in a slaying that wasn’t posted ahead of time for the public. Normally I miss out on these types of slayings, and the market is quite controlled by just a few players.

Schiann received the rare bone from the kill, and the other bits were rolled on (skull, body, meat, etc). All in all, it was not a bad way to wrap up my treasure hunting! Maybe I’ll get to participate in a few more of these in the future.

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Down goes a Dragon (and a Kyklops)

There were over 300 people in local on this double slaying! Organized (once again) by Stanlee, I was shocked at how busy it was (but I shouldn’t have been, the public slayings are always quite a spectacle). I spotted a few members of the secret hat club, but not nearly as many as last event.

I’m sure a great time was had by all, and I can’t wait until the next one.

Quail Island joins the Flock

To the West of my other deeds is an island that someone had created with a wand, these islands are different than the man-made ones because they have a rock layer and thus you can create mines inside of them. The island had been previously owned, but came to rest with one of my local neighbours. At the time I first spoke to them they were uninterested in selling it though it had remained mostly unused since February. This week they noticed I was selling items off on the NFI cluster and they asked if I’d be interested in making a deal. 50s on the NFI clusters for the island.

Of course I jumped at the chance!

I have no idea what sort of deed I’ll be building here quite yet, most of the bridge to the mainland is actually deeded by another neighbour so I don’t think I can create a highway up, there’s a secondary bridge that’s almost fallen apart but I am not sure if it will decay since that too is on someone else’ property. Still, the mine is lovely, there’s a boat entrance and a walking entrance to it, and it sits on the South shore of Independence near the center, so I’m quite happy with the location overall.

I’ve been browsing different ideas on how to transform this location and we’ll just have to see how it goes. As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Progress on Quail Landing

I’ve been making mortar and bricks in between everything else in Wurm, and slowly Quail Landing is coming along. I need a second tall kingdom banner from the Cheese kingdom (of course I decided to try to decorate with another semi-rare PMK but this time it involves cats) but it’s getting there. I can’t wait until more of the buildings are put together. Each wall takes 20 mortar and 20 bricks, which is a huge pain but boy do you ever feel proud as you start to complete some of the larger projects.

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

The Perfect Horse

Yesterday I was sailing around on the NFI server Cadence selling some belongings when I came across this horse. It was obviously released as horses typically don’t start with a name, but it surprised me none the less as my deed is called Quail Landing (and Quail Cove). I wanted to collect it, but I cannot tame hell horses and I didn’t have a save way to get it back to my deed. At venerable it can’t be hitched. So I just looked at it in awe.

A meeting of Hats

These are my people.

At the dragon slaying on Release I was tickled to find a few others wearing their secret society hats! It’s an exclusive club, but I think we stand out pretty well.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Wurm Online Tips & Tricks, Pt.1

(note, the screenshot has nothing to do with this post, I just thought it was neat)

Wurm is a complex game and just when you think you’ve figured something out – you learn something new, even years later. I wanted to post some of these handy tricks and tips in case there were others out there, like me, who may not have even known they existed.

#1. HFC faster

  • Open settings, and under user interface, set the default shift-drag value to 1. Then make sure to enable shift-drag in the GUI which is just above it. Fill a satchel with meat, and another with veggies. Hold down control and click on the stack (don’t expand it) of meat, and then veggies. Let go of control. Hold down shift and enter. While holding those down, drag from either of the stacks, to a frying pan. Release enter. This is pan filling in a nutshell. It’s probably the fastest system out there, and it works for as many ingredients as you want, so if you’re doing anything in bulk, including moonshine and pizza, it allows you to drag 1 item from each stack you highlight to the container of your choice. Essential for grinding.

#2. Oh No, I’m drowning!

  • If you run out of stamina in water, you’ll start to take water damage and can eventually die from it. There are two things you can do in this situation that you may not know about. Number one – log out. Your stamina will replenish slowly while you’re offline, giving you the ability to move again once it has filled up. Or, if you’re close to shore, right click the bottom left icon of the ‘body’ on your character screen, and select ‘last gasp’ – this will turn on climbing, and allow you to climb up the shore to safety.

#3. Anything cloth / wool is a potential bandage

  • Got attacked unprepared? Maybe you have a cloth tent or a hat laying around! Don’t risk dying just because you don’t have actual healing material. You can use anything that is made of cloth or wool to bandage up those wounds.

That’s all for this week! I’ll be posting more tips & tricks for Wurm Online next Saturday, so be sure to check out the post if you’re interested. As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.

A Few More Maps with BLEH For Reward

I spent the day working on some treasure maps but didn’t get anything truly awesome. A few upkeep chips, a lot of pelts, leather, and rope. The usual lumps.


I can now finally make delicious food for myself! I know HFC isn’t nearly as difficult as say, WS, but pan filling is pretty boring. I made a few hundred meals, used some moonshine affinity drink and some sleep bonus, and watched the ticks happen. I might do a few more grind sessions in the future, but I’ve never really cared about going to 99 or anything like that in Wurm, so I’m quite content to be 60+ (although 90+ would be even better). I go through a LOT of food in game, it affects your skills, and even my alts eat a lot since they hang around doing nothing (well, priest things) most of the time.

I’m eager to unlock more recipes, I have a few hundred done so far, and I want to continue with that. It just requires a lot of sub-combines that are a bit of a chore (batter, passata, mayo, ketchup, those types of things). I can’t wait to see what I discover next.

As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!

Wurm Online Streams

I’ve been trying to get back into streaming for some time now, but I haven’t really felt enthralled with World of Warcraft, so I decided why not go back to my roots. I’ve been playing Wurm Online – what about streaming it. Last night was my first stream, and I had a ton of fun (though I did not get much accomplished). I travelled to the Northern part of Independence to work on my 83ql map, and found some pillage along the way.

I stream Mon/Fri/Sat from 7:30 EST to 9:30 and you can find me over on Twitch. If that’s not your thing or the time doesn’t work out for you, there’s always YouTube where I tend to upload my broadcasts after. I’d love to one day be able to do this full time, but we’ll just have to see. It has been ages since I’ve done any real streaming, and I’m pleased to see how Twitch has added alerts to their own dashboard so I don’t have to fiddle around with third party sites. That was always something that I seemed to struggle with, and this should make it easier for me.

I imagine I’ll continue to remain a ‘variety’ streamer for now, with some fiber arts thrown in there from time to time, and maybe some traditional art too. In any case, it’s certainly nice to be back.
