White Dragons, New Starter Towns, and WALLS!
First of all my apologies for not writing for a bit. Real life of course reared its ugly head and made things difficult, but after a bit of sulking I’m back. Things have been pretty busy on Sklotopolis – which is great!
First of all, last weekend we took down the White Dragon that had spawned. In a move that surprised no one, I won nothing. I did get a scale and blood though, and Moumix, Maya, and Ogur all graciously donated me their scales too. I think I’m the only one out of our little bunch who has not won anything but I do have incredibly nice friends that make it all worth it in the end! lol. The event was a ton of fun, lots of people showed up. There was a tiny bit of drama as someone yelled charge before the team was ready with the dragon in position, but it got sorted.
There’s a new starter town being built right now, too. I’m a bit confused as to why, since it hasn’t even been a year since the 2nd “new” starter town has been built, and I think it just makes the first two starter towns fall into disuse and disrepair (the market of the first starter town is all but abandoned, and I expect the same will happen to the second one) but people like fresh exciting projects to work on, and this is certainly that. I donated a few thousand bricks and mortar along with concrete and hope everyone can make use of it. I dislike terraforming (I much prefer the work already done when I move to a deed) so I’m standing by the sidelines helping where I can (I gave away a 90ql hatchet and some other tools) and watching the work take place. Everyone is working really hard, which is neat to see. They’re taking a bit of a break to plan the next stage.
Speaking of, it means our next Wurm Unlimited update (due out tomorrow) is just in time – we’re finally getting new walls! I’m excited, even though I’m not sure where I’ll start. I expect I’ll swap out the bottom level of my blacksmithing building, and change the walls to the pottery house. I want to swap out some fences and roads, and I really wish they were adding the new reinforced walls along with the new mine “lights” that I’ve seen hints of. I hope they migrate to WU with time.
All in all, days are satisfying and full. If you happen to find yourself on the Sklotopolis server, be sure to say hello. You can find me there as Stargrace. Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
