@Stanimus
My settlement was north of scdudes new settlement, but i don't think i'd like to be there any longer. its too cold there.
Are u okay with me migrating somewhere else? I found a REALLY cool spot in an area about 200 meters southwest of your land. It has land, a lake, trees, its warm too. :-)
Also, can't wait to play. You said you guys were reorganizing some stuff?

@Hardgamer - that's right, I remember now. He even started building a highway to your land. Since you haven't incorporated yet, tecnically there's no rule against relocating. Just make sure you can make it back to the Capital. The rules do allow building a small rest stop as long as you use the same one and don't build new ones all the time. That's to avoid file bloat. Also, unless you buy the land it's on (after incorporating) anyone can use it or pilfer it, too. The Trading Post I built was meant to be available as a rest stop for anyone needing it. Now it's become a major store location.

@Beboy, I don't think it would be fair since everyone else has had to explore in cruel. Of course it's hard - it's cruel! Use this time as practice staying alive in cruel. It seems any place north of the Capital or west of the deserted city is available. I would suggest that once you find a spot that looks decent, save the game. Then explore to find a good way back to the Capital. If you die on the way, reload the saved game and keep trying. That's how I did it. It originally took me two days to make it back but once I had the route figured out, it's just barely under a day's walk.

There is a lot of cold areas north of the Capital. Or you could try going south and west, around and past Berclavia. If you avoid the cold regions, there's a lot of desert areas. That would put you more or less between Berclavia and Stanimosity. Just remember that there has to be "neutral zones" between each city of at least 32 blocks. (That's a new rule.)

For both: if you guys end up needing a rest stop enroute to the Capital, the Council may build one and make it public land. Later, it might add a road out that way to make travel easier.

What the heck? My reply disappeared! Stupid lefora garbage.
@TonedMite, Yes, you can.

@all: The link will be released in about 4 hours. Please post asap, if you can pick it up then. Bo5h Tonedmite and Hardgamer have asked about the same time and I'd rather give Beboy a little more time before getting it.
All the mods we want to do aren't done yet but it'll be OK for now.

Williamsburg County mini-News!
As a small group of a few dozen people, we plan to settle the far southwestern lands of this world.
There is a beautiful place which we plan to settle in the times of the future and we hope to soon arrive.
Our people are open to trade once we can manage trade, and we are eager to begin trade relationships with other states/counties.

Land of Berclavia Special Report

As the rain washes all away the stains and scourges of the world, so can the power of Berclavia.  We have long been silent but have been far from idle.  While some may have looked upon our reticence as apathy we can assure you that we, our academics mainly, have been applying themselves to be ready for the council proclamation.

Despite the lack of public announcement, we speak on behalf of the Council and pass along its judgement: that Saxondale be eradicated from this land due to their current crimes, to which they were never held responsible (due to the upheaval of their despot) and for past crimes as Vraeston.

See below for the evidence of our handiwork and rage.  Saxondale was not demolished...they have been erased as if they never existed.  Let this serve as a warning to those who act in the same manner as Saxondale. 

While we cannot guarantee peace, in this world we foster an attitude of discussion and rules.  There will be no anarchy.  There will be no deception.  There will be no wanton antagonism.

My advice to new players

If you are looking for the checkin it is a few posts above. 

This world is cruel. It is meant to be difficult. You will die. It may feel like your progress is slow. 

All of this is good!  I've played cruel on my own for several years and a world has never kept my attention this long. The reason?  There seemed to be no payoff for all the effort of resource collection. 

With this world you will still spend hours digging blocks but trade and the central city keep it interesting. Visiting other lands and seeing the changes is invigorating. 

Your city state is yours to do with what you will but I personally find it rewarding to make it perfect and detailed, within the limits of my building skills and it is still far from finished!

If and and when you are incorporated (or whenever you are interested) there is a deeper rule set that we can share. 

If if you'd like to discuss a rule or propose a change to the rules please do not hesitate to bring it up. I enjoy the discussion surrounding the rules as much as the game!

For example, I have one now: what if a new player doesn't want to take the time to scope land and incorporate?  What if they wanted to immigrate to an existing city state? What would that look like?

Also, the rules of war have not been finalized. I would like to propose that war cannot be declared until the rules on it are ratified.

Oh my god! I'm scared lol!
I'm not afraid of the cruel mode but the role playing is.

I can't understand English that much so how do I give my speech just like that! Lololol.. XD

@Beboy
Role play is an important part of this world. Posting 'monthly' reports has become standard for the players but it is not in the official rules. Sometimes it may even be more in character to NOT post a report, or just a basic one. You can see above, how hardgamer posted something simple and SCneophyte posted more details. The other players appreciate hearing about your progress or troubles and we will often give advice to help you out in tough situations. Even if the report is little more than, "We wandered around and got lost. But we found the way back just in time to meet our deadline (check in time)", that is still helpful for us all.
If the original thread was here, there would be numerous examples for you to see. Many times our reports were just that we got very little done, or we finished up a building, or all we did was mine and cut wood the whole turn. By posting and reading reports, it helps bring us all together as a group. Helps us feel we're not alone in the world, that we have some friends (or enemies!) close by. So, please don't shy away just because you worry about making a report. It would start off small, anyway. Plus, most of us have dealt with people who aren't primary english speakers and could even help you out with a report if you wish.

@hardgamer
By all means, take the link. (Remember to post it.) I was hoping you would be available soon, since it didn't get posted until so late. SCneophyte (and I) were working on special projects in it later than expected.

@stanimus I'll try my best to be in on what should this game would be :-)

And found your city and now I can say that it's not just a simple game at all!

Well sounds like headache for me but in the other hand the things I can learn from here could bring me at your level someday! :-)


Still can't find a right place, are some good spots but I'm not sure if it's still available.. :/
I mean the place before your city..
