Village Capturing in Darkfall

One way for clans to make gold in Darkfall is to capture villages. Villages are where people can have their own player-owned home. There is a limited number of these available across the entire server so they are very expensive and highly coveted. The reward for capturing a village is only around 2,000 gold. Really, not much in the big picture of things. It's for this reason that very rarely will you run into another person when trying to capture a village and so usually they aren't the PvP hotspots I think AV originally intended them to be.

Here we are coming up to the village now.

Here is the control point. All we need to do is destroy it, and the village will be under the control of Cthulhu! Siege hammers and battlespikes are used for destroying buildings and control points like this. So, we equip our siege hammers and go to work...

And there we are! Not too bad for about an hour's work, and the gold in the clan bank will be nice.

Exploring Agon

Hello, and good day everyone! Today's blog is just going to be some screens of my explorations around Agon. Agon is a huge world and there is plenty to see and explore! Exploration is all the more exciting in Darkfall because you never know who might try to kill you!

This first image is a simple one. Just training my magic skills on some skeletons in the Alfar lands.

After skeleton hunting, I go and relax under a giant mushroom.

Next, now this is much further away, I make it east to Hammerdale. Hammerdale is controlled by NEW and is a neutral city, a decent place to re-gear and stock up if you are in the area. NEW is a Darkfall clan that welcomes all new members so that they can be taught the inner-workings of DF and PvP.

I ran into this wolf guy while in Hammerdale, scary!

And finally, I wanted to share this picture of a lighthouse.

Another Great Newb Story!

I honestly like newbies and they do the darnedest things. This particular recruit of mine has done some particularly funny things, but he is full of inspiration and definitely makes the game more interesting.

Oh boy... maybe, this was a good thing? Somehow? Haha, either way, I love it and it is a fantastic story in my opinion. Epic!

Darkfall milestones: Herbing, Mining, AND Lumberjacking at 100!

Yup, not too much to say here, but I hit 100 Mining and 100 Herb Gathering (and lumberjacking, I just forgot to take the screen) in Darkfall! Go me! These are the first skills I have managed to get to 100 in Darkfall.

Dragons in Agon!

Yes, the almighty flame-lizard lives on in Agon. There before you you see the fearsome fire-dragon! Actually, I'm sure there is a better name for this guy, but Fire Dragon works for me at this point. Oh, but of background, I am still on my alignment-getting adventure during the taking of this picture. I'm running towards the human lands to try to find some easy prey there.

He doesn't look so tough...

..and this is the last thing I see. No "lol" needed! Hehe.

Three Unrelated But Still Significant Pictures

I could have made three separate posts, but each of these pictures has only a small story associated with them, so I'll just write it up here!

I attacked someone and killed them, and then I ganked them, which I didn't realize gives you even more negative karma. I didn't realize how much negative karma you got from killing members of your alliance all-together so I turned red instantly and thus could no longer enter cities of my own kind. So, I decided to start hunting around for people to kill for alignment. One of the first places I found was this island hamlet where I killed one person afk swimming, and another chopping a tree. Then someone mining in full armor reacted and slayed me, but it was fun.

Running further along, I ran into this cool looking city! (monster owned)

I think this doorway is an entrance to a dwarven city. Just a guess. Untill next blog, farewell!

Kitty On a Boat and The World Smallest Iron Node

I recently got the chance to try out sailing in Darkfall. I think almost everyone's first ship is a raft, and in my case this was no exception. Rafts are the first craft you can.. craft.. and they are also the cheapest. That said, they have no cannons and you are rather exposed on a raft.

One of the main activities a group of people can do while sailing is fish. This makes rafting both a fun and productive activity!

After sailing around a bit we landed on this island and cooked our fish using one of the previous mentioned campfires.

Oh, and as a small bonus, here is a picture of the worlds smallest iron node. There may be smaller out there, but so far this is the smallest I have seen.

A Day In The Life of a Noob

I was out hunting goblins one day when... well, just watch the video.

Click here to check out my 30 second Darkfall PvP video titled "A Day In The Life of A Noob"!

Oh, and this is my first PvP vid, and my first vid ever! Grats to me hehe. Yeah this is a 30 second video, however I would totally love to make more videos. I'm not really a big video-watching type tho, so I wouldn't want to waste peoples time. But if it is a fun and exciting video, then heck yeah, I'll post it!

Found a Giant Crystal In DarkFall

Exploring around DarkFall hunting for mobs and metal nodes to kill or harvest, I came across this giant crystal! At first I thought it was a giant metal node... but unfortunately you can't mine from this sucker. Still, a neat find and shows Darkfall has lots of interesting things to see and places to explore.

You can see a town in the first picture, this is a town who's inhabitants have been killed by the undead! It's an undead town! You can still see the lizard-on-a-stick left by it's original inhabitants.
Man I love lizard-on-a-stick. Ever since fallout, it's been my favorite meal.

Thanks for the warning o' skeletons! Oh, and you can see the giant crystal behind the sign! It's color is more natural in this light too, it was dusk in the previous picture.
