For better enjoyment of the sim, have Shared Environment on (Use shared environment) and sound on.
We use weather systems so when it rains, or snows, you can hear it by pressing the PLAY button on music, as if you would do by listening to a stream. All this is done to enhance your roleplay experience.
If you have a question, comment or concern pertaining to your home on sim, your role, something about RP, a Mod question etc follow the following steps:
1) DO NOT IM an online Mod/Admin
2) Make a NC with a detailed description of what you need.
3) Drop it in the mailbox up on the landing point
4) Cool your jets, and wait.
Our Mods/Admins give a certain amount of their online time to answer and help all these notecard drops. After that time has elapsed, however, they return to roleplay and will continue on with the notecard the following day. Your notecard will be attended to in the order it was received within 2/3 days MAX (credits to Scagnar for this bit)

WHERE IS THE VILLAGE?
The village is located somewhere very close to the Torvaldsberg, on the coast, hence in Torvaldsland.
Ask yourself: would my character be in Torvaldsland?
If the answer is NO then please adapt your story/character to make sense in Torvaldsland or leave.
Examples of characters not found in Torvaldsland: panthers, mambas, talunas, assassins etc. If you are one of those and have a story/reason, speak one of the Admins or Mods. Do not assume, please.
From Here you can go to the following locations/layers on sim
All the locations are force collar/force capture with roleplay
No random raids or captures without roleplay. Also use common sense. The village would be heavily guarded so no captures at village level outside of raids.
