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!

“Fat Farm” Renamed To “Leftover Ranch”

We’re renaming “Fat Farm” to “Leftover Ranch” per a suggestion from @Dorian .

And, we’re going to give out these animals to citizens, alliance members, or anyone on the Independence server, based upon need.

Here’s the latest pic with all the fencing finished:

March 9-12: We’re Making Great Progress on the Ledge at New Festival Cove


We’re making great progress on the Ledge project!  This is a project, where we dig away A LOT of dirt to give a spectacular view to citizens living at the top.  We also want to make it easy to forage and botanize while walking the cobblestone road.

We’ve added a couple more side projects where we’re taking the dirt from the Ledges and dropping it in the community area pools to expand the roads, so we can move around more easily.

Our plan this upcoming weekend is to continue: 


Major Improvements At The Grain Farm (aka Scythe Field)

Citizens of New Festival Cove have free access to Farm (with a Rake) and Harvest (with a Scythe), at our grain farm.

As you may know, only four (4) items, are harvest-able with a Scythe:

  • Barley
  • Oat
  • Rye
  • Wheat

Citizens of New Festival Cove also have free access to our regular farm, which has things such as cotton, vegetables, and wemp.

Fat Farm

March 13, 2018 Update:  We’re renaming “Fat Farm” to “Leftover Ranch” per a suggestion from @Dorian .


We are unsure what to call this secondary stable holding area.

Currently, it’s called “Fat Farm”, as this particular stable is being used to house excess animals that are no longer part of our breeding program.

Because we don’t need these animals, we could fatten them up and slaughter them later.  Or, we can give them to citizens, alliance members, or anyone on the Independence server, based upon need.

I would like some ideas on a better name.  We’re using “Fat Farm”, but should “Slaughterhouse” be a better name?  Both sound awful.  We would appreciate if you can suggest a better name here.

A Proposal For A Third Guard Tower At New Festival Cove

We’ve received a recommendation by @Hughmongus regarding the placement of a third guard tower at New Festival Cove.  As you may know, can be a dangerous place.

After reviewing the recommendation, we chose a tile 1 tile North so as not to block the highway.  Since this information is new, we haven’t had a chance to confirm the location, and it may be the same tile @Hughmongus recommended.

You can see the upcoming Guard Tower (around the bottom-left of the white-dotted box) if you travel along the highway system and look into the water.
