    We probably should. Do we want to build our buildings together or just wherever?

    according to this somebody needs to get to level 2 before they can build a guild. So what region are we shooting for?
    We have to build together! FOR THE GREATER GOOD!
    A good spot has clay, water, a good amount of trees, sand, preferably silt and thorns. And has nobody else there. Also a plus if there's a road nearby.
    a sheep spawn is nice also
    it can't be near schools or unis or starting areas
    oh and grass, duh

    well we have that in east egypt. I think right near the starting area where we all are now would be a good place. We just havet o figure out how to get to level 2.

    All regions have all of those its just a matter of claiming them first
    Furthermore once you're done with the peasant test there is no reason at all to do anything by yourself

    Nope the first thing we need to do is find a good one. Once we do we can all converge on that spot.
    the first sign of a good spot is a lot of trees you can see from a distance.
    I just found a good spot
    Its got clay silt water sand grass wood dirt mud, not really a lot of wood though is the only problem

    Its in Upper Egypt coordinates 1658 4024.... its also not near the transfer point either. It might be a better idea to find one closer to the center of the region.

    Its not like wyrm as there is no combat. You can't get hurt. Its more abstract.
    I'm in game as ChaosMage you can teleport to my location as a noob.

    In the game as webguy20

    as to what we're doing.... Just built a building and are working on upgrading it. It needs materials that people learn how to make becoming a citizen. Once we get that done hopefully me or someone else can assend to level two and be capable of building a guild building.

    It's also not like Wurm wherein you can't terraform. It's similar in some ways, though.

    So what materials are in highest demand?

    Material gathering/manufacture seems like a good job for random helpful people to do that can actually show some material benefit.

    In game now as Iayiah. We have a nice settlement at 1678, 3996 with a load of public equipment (Just north of the Uni of Arcitecture). Anything to fo with Flax would be good i think as that is pretty time consuming to produce.

    No problem there, I'll see what I can get made.

    Man, I really worked my ass off in Tale3 beta, I spent the first 24 hours working with a few other equally dedicated players and we led in research in almost all disciplines for a good amount of time. It was alot of fun bringing together a community and seeing great results but I don't know if I'm up for another base line start. D:

    So tempted though...

    At least you know it now. I think I have done the test 6 or so times in total and it just gets more and more tedious.

    I am logging in just to check out the new pretty stuff...

    Fullscreen = A huge thank you to Teppy! This was one of my biggest gripes from back in the day...

    Still waiting on the implementation of my epic camel mounts... :D
