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!

Issues With Adding Dye to White Chess Board Pieces

We’ve run into issues with using Zinc and creating White Chessboard pieces.

If you look on the right, it’s a normal, untouched “statue of a boy”.

If you look to the left, it’s a “statue of a boy” with white dye added.

As far as I can tell, it’s darker on the left, than the original statue.

To me, this needs to be something fixed by the devs.

New Merchant at New Festival Cove

NEW:  SEPTEMBER 2018

A new merchant has been added to New Festival Cove in the Southeastern corner of the village.

The super-fast mailbox is still on the left – a nice reminder of the past.

And, the Epic Portal is still in its original location for the PvPers out there.

Stone Slabs versus Marble Bricks versus Trees versus etcetera

NOVEMBER 2018 UPDATE

We decided to use Stone Slabs as they look great!

Thank you everyone for your input to help us make the right decision.


SEPTEMBER 17, 2018

The citizens of New Festival Cove on the Independence are looking for your opinion on whether to use Stone Slabs (on the left side of the picture), Marble Bricks (on the right side of the picture), Trees, or some other material on a very steep slope.

We haven’t been able to acquire black slate yet, so keep that in mind while voting.

Our current thought is either Stone Slabs, Marble Bricks, or Trees.  However, your opinion could help sway us.

By using Trees, they can be easily  cut down as you go up the road from the Mayor’s Home to the Stables, replanted, and give way to more growth of the same trees.

Other thoughts are that huge slopes create a great consistent view along a road or view, and therefore should be slabbed/bricked up with something, so no one can do anything with them.

What are your thoughts?

June 4, 2018 – Troll Dies After Killing 2 Local Guard Militia Members On Nearby Mountain

A Troll has killed two (2) local Guards, of the Southeast New Festival Cove Tower Guard Militia, after maintaining a lengthy fight on the mountain.  Ultimately, the Troll was killed, after reinforcements arrived.

“He (the Troll) had an elevation advantage.  I am in shock!”, reported one of the Guards, after witnessing his brother’s death.

“We are deeply saddened upon hearing this news, but battle protocol must always be maintained.”, reported Guard Militia Leader, “Vooch”.

After reviewing https://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Fighting_Skill_Tips , we can examine (post hoc and, in this case, post mortem) why these two Guards died almost at the same time:

Height Advantage. The tank should always get a height advantage over the enemy. There are two levels of height advantage: one is obtained at 20 steep and the second is obtained at 40+ steep. Note: This is the same advantage you get when using mounts, so using both will not give you any more benefits.”

Our condolences go out to the family members of the Southeast New Festival Cove Tower Guard, and all those involved.

March 17-19 Dead Settlement Hunt

i’ve learned a lot about some players in our alliance.

I would like to thank my friend @Goddessotu for steering the ship tonight.

We went through the SW shore into  the Port Kincaid area, looking for treasure, and I came back full-handed, with hearts, fats, and something i forgot.  Sorry!
