My alt Seraphine attended with some friends, and we all had a great time! We came out together overland, and just the journey out was an adventure in itself. I loved that someone thoughtfully provided a campsite and julbard, and while the ogres the size of buildings were awe-inspiring, I think the sharknado was my favorite touch. I'm quite new at Wurm, so was also delighted to be able to attend a server-wide event even though none of my characters are very advanced.
The advice to bring and pitch a tent was very good! One of us didn't have a tent, but she made sure to stay out of harm's way. I... ended up burying two of my own corpses, ha! That cracks me up. But I still have my newbie tent so foolishly drawing aggro just meant a walk back.
