This an exploration event to revisit some of the work done by the original Sklotopolis settlers. We will begin at Hidden Inn. You will need to be sharp eyed, for the way will be marked by red flags and buoys, as well as clues given at various points.
We will meet at Hidden Inn at 8pm UTC. 26th June. There you will be allocated a sailboat to use and given directions to the next point of interest. There will be the occassional chest filled with player made items.
This is player held event and we have only allowed only one chest item per player so I am asking that you have one toon taking part. No second, third, fourth accounts please.
Let us all share the fun. It is no fun to open an empty chest.
This is the area we will be exploring. The New Town Area and surroundings. I recently took a walk down memory lane with Ravenloft. New Town was the starter town where we both spawned into Sklotopolis. Ravenloft was few months earlier. Wurm rules applied. We start at 20 in all skills. 21 so we could ride a horse immediately. Ravenloft reminded me of many things. Fast carts here. The highlight for me was getting a horse from examining a sign. Today players get two horse eggs in inventory. This bsb used to have cotton and seeds in it for the newly spawned farmers.. Signs led players to the public mine which has supreme/fantastic forges and ore vein ready to mine and smelt. We checked out New Town. Marvelling at the changes, new harbour and buildings. How many had come and gone since the server began. Once there was no space to deed around here. Now it is a perfect place to begin for any player wanting to deed.
I asked Dominikk if he had any pictures of the early days around New Town. The following are some he shared with me.
10 days away. The course has been plotted and will take approximately 1 hour, maybe 2 hours if you stop, here and there, to sightsee.
We will be sailing through many tunnels and canals. This is one that Badgirl, Iamyourfather, Elfin tunnelled out with help of others from time to time.
This is one of the first, if not THE first bridge to be built over a tunnel in Sklotopolis. Badgirl, Iamyourfather with Elfin planned and executed this one. As the upper tunnel already existing, Iamyourfather and Badgirl constructed 'scaffolding' while Elfin slept.
Another method of joining up two tunnels without causing a dropshaft. This one is Snidor designed and built by Arbi, Elfin and Snidor. The east to west tunnel is still under construction. Slowly yet surely being worked on.
Can you identify where these places are?
If you have any questions and/or added information about these spots or the event please post them on this thread.
Introducing Bern, Mayor of Druid's Valley. Bern built one of the tunnels we will be sailing through. Linking the New Town Bay to the lake south. Along his tunnel are some scenes - one from childhood memories and one from imagination.
Introducing Neit. Villager of Amarius Who lives along the sailing event route Neit helped Dordain when he deepened and widened the existing canals in the area which earlier players had carved out. Now ships of all sizes may pass without being beached. Many players have settled, lived and moved on from this area.
Sounds like it will be a great time. I am sorry I will have to miss it. I will be off for about 10 days visiting family out of state. I hope to be back in time for double slaying on Novus. Y'all have a great time on the sailing event. Tradigo/Valdigo
