Wishing Lorptahs The Best

I was hoping to meet up with Lorptahs this weekend, but he got an alert about wildfires in his area (Australia) so he had to go. Because of the wildfire situation, he also said he doubts he will be able to return to Wurm Online for at least the next 3 days. We wish Lorptahs the best during this very tough time.

To all rescue personnel around the world, such as our buddy, Lorptahs, we salute you, and we thank you for your service!

Recreating Overlook Lodge from The Shining in Wurm Online

Thicket has suggested a super cool idea. Recreating the “Overlook Lodge” from the movie, “The Shining” in Wurm Online.

We’ve got the perfect spot for it, but we’re working out the logistics first: getting the dirt leveled off in the area… thinking about the design (1st floor stone, 2nd floor timber/wood, 3rd floor on one end, timber wood….it’s a hotel with different heights, but it looks like it’s gonna be a lot of fun to design!

We’re planning to have Overlook Lodge / Free Hotel available at our October 2020 Impalong.

How To Make Pizza in Wurm Online

We will be tweaking this recipe to make it more user-friendly, but this is our fourth attempt so far:

CREATE DOUGH

(1)   Move one (1) cereal (barley, rye, oat, or wheat) into your inventory.  We’ll call this [YourCereal].
(2)  Activate a grindstone (by double-left clicking it) and grind that item into flour, by right clicking the [YourCereal] and left-clicking on Create->Food->[[YourCereal] flour].
(3)  Activate at least 0.3 weight of water from anywhere, by left-clicking on Water.  (No need for a measuring cup).  Right-click the flour and Create->Food-[[YourCereal] dough].

CREATE PASSATA

(1)   Move Basil, Garlic, and Tomato into your inventory.
(2)  Activate a Knife and chop the Basil, Garlic, and Tomato into Chopped Basil, Chopped Garlic, and Chopped Tomato, respectively.
(3)  Take a Pottery Bowl out of the Oven, and drag the three (3) chopped ingredients in the Pottery Bowl.
(4)  Activate a Fork and right-click  the Pottery Bowl.  Left-click -> Create -> Passata.

ADD ITEMS TO MARBLE BAKING STONE

(1)  Put Dough, Passata, and one (1) regular uncut meat into marble baking stone.
(2)  One (1) chopped veggie (a veggie chopped with a knife).
(3)  One (1) chopped herb (an herb chopped with a knife).
(4)  One (1) cheese
(5)  One (1) ground spice (a spice ground with a mortar & pestle)
(6)  One (1) raw fries (this is a potato butchered with a butcher knife)

OPTIONAL:  Add more uncut meat (and chopped veggies) to get more bonuses (on calories, carbs, fats, or proteins).

NOTE:  Right-click the baking stone, marble and left-click Lore…You might need to add more Passata to it, so repeat the Passata recipe above.  If it fails again, add more Passata, etc.  The more meat you add, the more Passata may be required.

AFTER THE PIZZA IS MADE, YOU NEED TO WRAP IT UP

(1)  Activate beeswax, by double-left clicking beeswax.
(2)  Right-click blank papyrus sheet.
(3)  Left-click wax.

(4)  Activate waxed papyrus sheet by, by double-left clicking waxed papyrus sheet.

New Festival Cove is Recruiting New Citizens

Ready to jump aboard, mates?!

New Festival Cove is Recruiting New Citizens!

We have some very ambitious goals for 2019, including building an area for a possible future Impalong event, filling up a super-cool Haunted House with your ideas, and improving the town infrastructure (located in the “Current Projects” section of the NewFestivalCove.com website).

If  you desire to be part of a team that works together to build Big and Great things;  want to live in a safe, rent-free, tax-free, and upkeep-free environment; and/or play the game you want to play it, then consider the village of New Festival Cove on the Independence server.

Signage

I would love for all the signage within New Festival Cove to be very informative to a new visitor, so when they see this village for the first time, they can understand what is going on by reading the signs.

Current great examples are:  The large sign at the “Grain Farm” and the large sign at the “Aquatic Wildlife Center” **.

Both have useful information about what goes on in those areas.

We all need to continue improving the village by adding better signage throughout the village.

Instructional signage is very important, and if you make a sign, it improves your Fine Carpentry skill!
