I am in the regular craft hall in Port Hampshire. .
When I place the CNR on the station and try to craft at woodworking, the menu comes up , but the only option is 'Exit'.
I have since tried the fletching, and all the tailoring stations with the same result .
I have the required cert badges.
Orion did a fantastic job last night running what I would best describe as a 'mini-quest'.
A good balance with RP and a bit of a dungeon crawl.
It was inventive and challenging, and made the crypts of Hlint a terrifying place ...
and yet we were able to get through it quickly as there were Real Life constraints.
I liked it.
Would it be possible to have higher quality wooden spears added as an item ? ( spears made out of oak , mahogony, yew)
The only spear currently available, as a wood product, is hickory. To get a higher quality one, you must then go to metal.
Also: Would\\could a wooden spear be a weapon option made permissable for a druid ?
*a carefully scribed notice is placed on the board of the Wild surge Inn and the temples of Ilsare and Lucinda .*
To all those who have ventured with me to the “Tower of Strands”:
Much has been been learned, yet much needs to be discussed. Perhaps we can gather as a group to compare notes and chart a course of action.
Also, now that we know a bit more: Are there clues in the Great Library, or at one of the temples ?
If this be of interest, please scribe your mark here.

// I am thinking of a get together to discuss this quest IC. Also, perhaps a library search if it could be arranged. I am available 12-4 GMT (7-11 PM EST..GMT +5)
Please post replies here.

Parties will be organized to go after the raw materials needed to fill the quotas. Working together we will be able to get what's needed quickly, efficently and safely. After your hard work the Leilon Arms will be supplying food and drink to the workers and contributors.
Character A is in a fight and kills several monsters or whatever.. bodies are scattered with gold on the ground.
Character B witnesses the fight,(in character he is not so nice rogue or whatever).. and starts looting the bodies.. he's a sleazy guy so this is great RP..
Is this considered stealing ? I know Character A maybe none too happy but ?
My most spectacular date with the void to date was brought about at the hands of a very angry Yeti. My character was ripped to shreds in an amazingly short time. But he stood and fought and perished..
My dumbest (near)death happened when the tinker machine in the craft house malfunctioned and knocked my wounded character to like 1 HP..
One can never be too careful anywhere !
My character Jharl was just outside the crafthouse in Hlint and had taken the pack off his ox to get some goods. There were also 2 other oxen in close proximity. All of a sudden for a period of a good 2 or 3 minutes the oxen were scared off and running and crashing into one another .There was apparently nobody nearby or about ..Could this had been someone invisible ?
When I got done with my pack, I had to walk a considerable distance to find my ox again to reload the pack.
There was no harm done, but this was an extreme annoyance.
my character Jharl died in sielwood near the entrance to Ranger's Vale. I went back and recovered my grave (prayed) and right after that the server went down. after the server came up,I reappeared in Hlint as a 'ghost'. walked back to repray at my grave again but it is not there..
Tried The DM channel
also ..my time to reflect is in negative numbers, was -2 ,now -3..
have loggd/out in and rested etc..no avail..

Tome of the Scarlet Hawk - The Journal of Jharl
* A worn and battered leather bound journal. All the writing has been penned in a neat and careful script. It seems that the writer is either very new to this skill or being very meticulous ..or both*
I have arrived and entered this settlement called Hlint. It is a confusing place with all manner of people about. Such large crowds..and these buildings.. it is all so complicated, but with all these strange folk about there may be much lore to discover here.
I set up camp in some woods north of town, near a great stone tower. The first night I was set upon by an orc warparty.. they exist no more. The Orcs are numerous here as well so I have moved my camp to a more remote location.
I heard of a bounty offered by the Quartermaster to go skin some goblins that harrass the town . The quartermaster seemed bored by the whole thing..it has been going on for so long it seem...the orcs and goblins are a common sight right up to the gates of town.
The town also has a crypt where they consign the bones of their fallen. Apparrently the dead inside are restless and sometimes become a problem.
I have met many warriors and such of all type but have not befriended any as yet. Some have looked at my hide armor and mumbled something about .."only a bar..bare ee en".. they did not say it with the honor a warrior deserves.
*another entry several days later*
My journey has become a little eaiser now that I remember my voice. Now more often than not, I quietly sing to myself when working, be it chopping wood or just traveling.
The old song of the hunt, and the work song.. They truly make my pack seem lighter and help my spirits.
I have begun to chop wood so that I might be able to craft a fine bow.
I have today met another 'bar bare ee en".. but not from any tribe that is in our lore. Her name is Sy'Ravenne . She has made a long journey to Hlint from across the sea, a place called, I think Dreager. She was summoned from her people to Hlint by a dragon.. I did not tell her I had the same vision. She has been here for many moon cycles.
I had a long talk with this warrior clad in strange rainment. She wields a fine curved sword that the locals call a scimitar. She spoke of learning yet another strange blade called a katana. Her eyes were on fire as she spoke of being able to wield such a weapon ..could it be that powerful ?
Later when another came to greet Sy'Ravenne, I began to quietly sing our tribal song of greeting. Sy'Ravenne asked if I were a bard ..I said no, I was a warrior, but one that had a fair voice that I hoped to use to inspire in war and toil. She thought that this was very noble I think, and said I should seek out one called Geir. He has great skill in this.
Sy'Ravenne then enlisted me into a war party . We entered a cavern near to Hlint that has become the home of goblins. There are far fewer of that vermin in there now. It was good to be back on the hunt again, although my new companions fight in strange ways with strange weapons.
One of the members of our war party had black skin and white hair and wielded a great longbow. yes ..it was a drow ..the lore is correct: they do exist and they are more than a tribal legend now. This drow walked openly in Hlint and told me she was friendly..as the Scarlet Hawks always do, I told her that I held no prejudice but would make my personal judgment on her actions. She fought as hard as the rest of the party and this drow, as far as Jharl is concerned is steadfast.
