I love these threads and as an adventure game I'd love to read and hear about your daily grinds and rewards. I for one, logged in today to find half my company members missing from the house. I went outside and couldnt see our Schooner or Sloop anymore. I play on PvP official but I have made the assumption that my company mates havent gone exploring but were killed off last night and we havent a bed to spawn on this island. I guess that will be down to me to get a raft and create a bed so they can return. If I get round to doing that I think Im going to respec and see what the other skill trees have to offer as I have tried taming and general building and weapons... maybe shipwright or whatever is similar.
Inspired by the thread "For Salt and Glory, A Tale About Lessons Learned", I decided to share my stories about ships loved and lost in Atlas so far... Read the thread here: My sailing partner and I have traveled together in too many different worlds and too many time periods to count. We beat the odds countless times because we've been hunting and fighting side by side so many times, we have a connection and trust about each other's moves. I know his fighting style and strategy, and he knows mine. We work synchronously as a pair. We fight the land, the seas, and the stars; the past, the present or future. Wherever the adventure has taken our liking. So when my matey told me about a world where we would build ships, sail the Atlas, and fight on the seas, I was immediately onboard. Of course I would join him. Note: We currently play on NA PVE and a small Dedi server. We're trying some things out as a duo team, then we'll move to PvP once we find the right company. These stories are from NA Hydra's Den. The Silver Mermaid: She was the first we brought into this new world, though she is a recreation of a ship from a very old and different time and world. We built her, then immediately set her to sail across the regions. We stopped at island to island, never staying for more than a quick look, then moving on to the next. We felt the salt and the seaspray as we sliced through the deep blue water. We marveled at the freedom of sailing the seas, and the beauty in the waves. There was narry another ship during that time, so we felt the world open and secluded for a time, but it was soon to change. While the Silver Mermaid enthused and excited us about traveling this great blue Atlas, we yearned to try a slightly bigger ship than the sloop. After much exploring, we came across a region where we would temporarily set our hold. We have no interest in staying in place for too long, and had no intention of claiming or defending any territory. We belong on the seas. We managed to claim an abandoned stretch of land long enough to build a temporary bungalow, and started work on the schooner: "Myth's Folly". We listened and shook our heads as our neighbors argued over land and resources. We paid it no mind. As soon as "Myth's Folly" was ready, we would leave this region. We are mercenaries. We stay for a time, take what we want and need, then move on to the next. As we plundered the land of its resources (amid our neighbors' frequent bickering), I noticed the frequency of storms in this region. I inspected the Silver Mermaid daily and repaired minor damage. She was taking minor damage during these storms, but I believed that she was well taken care of and safe. My matey had laid down for the night, but I still had work I wanted to finish on Myth. As I gathered resources and stored them, a powerful storm rolled into the region. I noticed where we parked the Silver Mermaid was getting pummeled with several cyclones. I counted about 5 cyclones that took direct hits on the anchored Silver Mermaid. I became alarmed, but she was anchored far enough from me that I would have to swim several hundred feet through raging water and cyclones. The storm stopped, and the sun appeared. As I began swimming towards her to inspect the damage, I watched in horror as she split apart at the seams and sank. I messaged my matey that the Silver Mermaid was no more. He awoke, and joined me as we took the Silver Mermaid apart plank by plank. We believed her sacrifice to the gods of the storms was to become a part of Myth's Folly. While her end was unexpected, she was spared another fate... To Be Continued: Ship #2 Myth's Folly
