    I started up a character and wandered around.

    Realised everything I wanted to do involved building epic towns.

    Realised the last epic town was wiped in the reset before we even got the wall up.

    Went back to Minecraft.

    I think Uno has a village somewhere with a few others.

    Anyone who stuck around the codex camp has either gone inactive or moved away to make their own hermitage.

    I log on before and after work to top up my curio's and then run around foraging for more when I have free time. Not really gotten much done yet with my own hermitage.

    I've set up a little camp with my brother and a friend, we're going quite well, even if we still lack metal (prospecting is bugged like hell, and i should make a mine hole and go to the second layer to be sure to get some iron).

    Not a village, we have a farm, but only Archess and me play more or less often now. We've managed to get some iron from a neighboring mole russian (he ALWAYS SPEAKS IN CAPS claiming it's because of bad eyes) and made a few necessary tools.

    Also i've created 3 enthroned toads recently, woohoo.

    What server are you playing on?

    The most fun I had in the game was running around mapping the wilderness and finding stuff. Building the original New Codexia with everybody was fun, but most of the fun for me was being an explorer and finding resources and feeling like that had some usefulness to the group.

    I assume in these subsequent worlds, everybody still spawns in random spots, and there is no higher level wilderness to explore?

    They removed the best part of the game for me with that change.

    Anyway, is any of the old gang still around? Anybody remember Sarien the map-maker/fisherman, finder of uber clay, butt-raper of bears?

    Actually, in this world there is more stuff to find in the wilderness - various curiosities in swamps, mountains, mudflats, and such. Oh, and catching the damn dragonflies.

    Hmm, could you send me their location on world map? what Q soil do they have? And it seems a bit risky joining them what with everyone hating them...
    Otherwise I've been looking into Narfell, anyone in that village?

    Edit: Ah nevermind the location, I think I found it: http://algeralith.info/HavenMap/?x=-50. ... .86&zoom=8 why is it built over a thicket? I hate those :/

    You shouldnt have problems with odditown being hated if you were to join. We are the power house of this would with 4 people already being over 350ua, and almost all of us with 200. Just met klaue the other day that took our raid on emberwood :( we had to wait for our ram to fry, they let him in.

    I got gang-banged by cows. Just had to get one more Auroch hair...

    There is a bizzare village next to me. About 4 times the size of Nova Kodexia in World 2. Nothing but an epic palisade with a few houses in the middle and some crops. Just a big, huge, mostly unclaimed palisade. Very strange.

    So far, nobody I've met around my area will stop and speak. It's kind of spooky really. Maybe they are intimidated by my fishing rod and newbie gear?

    I think I'm going to pack up and go resource hunting, although I'm guessing all the water, clay, and soil spots were discovered and claimed long ago. I wish they would reintroduce some kind of uninhabited wilderness area to be explored. That was the best part of World 2.

    Anyone still going with this? I logged in to check on my cave, and nothing had changed. I'll consider returning for W6, but I find curios ruin the game for me.

    I sit on my clay
    And I speak: play another day, play another day.

    And yet, I grow bored
    No treasures left to hoard.

    Time to move on,
    and then one more player is gone.


    Blargh, I hate the grind without this village. Was the only village i played in that I didn't quit for a long time of boredom from grinding. I still lurk though, nice to watch the raid threads and drama on congress.
    Hope you guys are having fun in whichever paths you took, in or out of game,
    Regards, GP.

    I've got a little hermit claim going, but I'm bored with it.

    Removing Mordor took a lot away from the game. Without a higher level wilderness to explore and claim, it's just basically logging in to do chores. The FEP adjustments blow. I can't work off enough hunger to gain FEP without standing around digging dirt and plowing by hand.

    I quit after World 2 and started back in World5. Despite World2's flaws, World5 is 10 times as tedious.

    I noticed in an article about Salem, that they seem to be back to having a Mordor. I'll be interested to see how that game turns out, and what lessons they learned from Haven.

    Salem article is here: http://www.tentonhammer.com/salem/may-2011-update

    That sounds both interesting and yet completely fucking retarded at the same time.
