Reminder to all Guild Members and Potential Guild Members!

The forums are located here!
http://www.thecaverns.net/talk/

Hello everyone,

Two things of note to remind everyone of.

The forums are located here!
http://www.thecaverns.net/talk/

One, We are still here!!!  The webpage itself just does not see a lot of activity that can be seen by the public because… AND NOTE, THIS IS IMPORTANT:

Our Guild Discussion forums are located at a different link, using PhpBB software. Why a guild webpage and separate forums?  Last time I checked there was no decent way to Embed PhpBB Forums (or any of the other decent forum packages), into a WordPress site.  The forum software is updated too often for it to be used for anything more than forums, and so a website outside of the forums is needed.  While WordPress does offer forum type plugins/software, I find it very inadequate to a full blown forum software package. So we have both!

The forums are located here!
http://www.thecaverns.net/talk/

ALSO NOTE: When you go to the forums there is a general discussion section that the public can see.. and that’s ALL! There IS an ACTIVE guild member only forum section, but to see them you have to have access to them!

To get access to the forums, you will need to register an account, which I will then have to go in and manually verify. While this is a pain, it is the best anti-spam measures available.

If I don’t do this within a day, use the contact form on this website to drop me a note and I’ll get it taken care of for you.

Only Guild members are granted access to the guild forums OR prospective guild members that would like to have an opportunity to hang out in our forums. If your thinking about joining the guild and want guild forum access, just contact me!

The forums are located here!
http://www.thecaverns.net/talk/


The other thing I would mention

The reason the “website” does not see much use, is I don’t have the time to do a lot with it. If someone wants a feature or asks me to do something, I will most likely do it if someone is asking me to.. because someone is asking, so they are using or looking at it, and that makes me happy to do it.

Otherwise, for general care – we need someone to maintain some things on the website. Hopefully, we eventually recruit someone interested in doing at least one of the things the site needs loving attention given to it, for! Maybe you?

What are those things?

-Maintaining the guild roster page(s)
-maybe we put a calendar up and keeping that updated with guild events and info
-general updating of the content on the site as needed
-someone to publish posts (like this one), about the guild and guild member related projects. Recap’s of guild events
-Anything else your imagination can supply.. Ill help with software installation if needed!

It’s all very easy to do. Much like using a word processing program! Drop me a note if interested 🙂

General Updates at the Caverns Guild – A Shroud of The Avatar Think Tank!

Hello, Everyone!

It has been a while since we have had a guild update on our page so I decided to put one out. It’s certainly not that we aren’t here. We are just a quiet and/or busy bunch of times!

So just some quick highlights!

First, I would like to welcome our new member Jynx! YAY!!! We Bid Ye Welcome Jynx, and thanks for giving us a shot! Jynx is known for many contributions to the SotA community and I personally feel very blessed Jynx joined us.

Secondly, I wanted to congratulate four Caverns Guild members on earning ONBE awards! Vyrin and Womby a bit back both earned one for their work with books in both the game and the community. More recently member Lord Baldrith and Honorary Member Asclepius both were given a ONBE for their work podcasting on Echoes from The Caverns!

Finally, Neath and The Caverns Under Neath moved in the game a short distance recently. We are now in the mountains right next to Central Brittany and The New Britannia Market. As part of that move, we connected with the NBM as well.

As always, The Caverns Guild continues to be the greatest guild I have ever had the fortune to be a member of!

P.S.
Skip this if you want to miss a shameless plug, but nonetheless, something you may think is cool!

My store, Caveloot.com, has these being made currently and in 2-5 weeks will have them aviliable for sale!

Vyrin & Womby’s Bookstore Open 3rd Location In Shroud of the Avatar

I enjoyed an excellent night of hunting with Womby tonight. He took me down into Serpent Spine for a little while so that I could hack away at the earth. A place a love but am not able to survive on my own yet.

Taking his Guild Leader out for a good time is not Womby and Vyrin’s only activity in the game, though. The most recognized players in the community when it comes to all things related to books, they have opened their third store!

vyrin-and-womby-third-book-store-banner

Womby & Vyrin are pleased to announce the opening of our third bookstore!

Please join us for an open house marking the occasion:

Sunday, November 20, 1-3 PM NBT in Estgard

I apologize for not getting the opening announcement out to you sooner, but be sure to go check the place out! Tell them Stile sent you!

The Little Book of Gratitude 2016 by Vyrin – Shroud of the Avatar

Shroud of the Avatar community, as we come upon Thanksgiving this year Vyrin has extended a hand to collaborate some of the things us players are thankful for this year, for all eternity! Or however long the text remains in Shroud of the Avatar anyway, in book format!

If you want to be included, simply write your thoughts in a reply to this thread. Please limit yourself to 100 characters. (It’s those book length restrictions!) Even with the limit, there may be 2 volumes if we get many responses.

I will collect all the submissions and format them into a book or books available in-game for a very modest price.

I am exceedingly grateful that Shroud allows us the opportunity to capture things like this in-game. Please join us in giving thanks!

Head over and add your sentiments and tell them The Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond sent you!

Vyrin is a member of The Caverns Guild and resident of the Player Owned Town of Neath and The Caverns Underneath. The Caverns Guild is both a guild and a think-tank, in which each of the members supports each other in their endeavors and projects as much as time and interest allow. Without any requirements regarding how much you play or how you spend your time.

We love the individuals that are enthusiastic and dedicated, but we also welcome the casual player with open arms.

We are recruiting and welcome players of all styles and walks of life. We are about maturity, no drama, having fun, and being open-minded about other people’s playstyles.

Most of all we just aim to be a happy home of people that share a similar interest. Shroud of the Avatar.

If you feel, we may be the right place for you, either as a town or a guild (or both), please don’t hesitate to contact either myself or another Caverns member about joining.

Lot of Player Tools for Shroud of the Avatar – Part 2

So, that last large list I did, was not very large in my opinion. Unfortunately, I had run out of time and rather risk the post sitting as a draft for days, got out what I could.

Large List of Goodness for Shroud of the Avatar Players

If you are like a lot of Shroud of the Avatar players, then you are playing more now that the last wipe and the game has gone persistent has taken place. I know I am!

With more time spent playing, or even playing for the first time, comes a need for more tools. Luckily that is also when people start making more!

So here’s a lot of stuff. Not all of this new, some of it I just hadn’t passed along yet. Let’s go down the list!


Vyrin and Womby Bookstore

Book lovers fear not! Vyrin and Womby’s bookstores are open for business! I had a chance to speak with both of these book enthusiasts the other day, being as I am in the same guild with them, and they said business is doing well. Not only do they sell books in the game but they also write limited edition books they sell as well!

The R32 Unreliable Travel Guide is on sale now! Limited edition of 100 copies only!

Not only is that a perfect example, but hit the link to go their posts, read more, and tell them Stile sent you!


Markee Dragon continues to play, stream, and put video on Youtube to help you get your feet on stable ground in the game. Here are a few more great pieces he has done recently!


NBNN Number System Example by Vyrin and Womby

Going back to those books I was talking about earlier; a Bookstore is not the only project Vyrin and Womby have going. This one NEEDS YOUR HELP to succeed! If you are a book publisher that is.

Ever see that ISBN number on the back of your book? Ever break one of those down to see how much information it tells you? How about scanning it or typing it for search purposes? It’s an incredibly useful tool as it essential replaces the card catalog days of old.

Vyrin and Womby are making sure New Britannia has no less in the virtual world than we have in reality.

In order to keep track of the books we produce, Womby and I have decided to implement a book number. We call it the New Britannia Book Number, or NBBN. It functions like an ISBN on real books.

We would like to offer the opportunity for others to use a similar coding system in order to have a tool to more easily identify books across multiple players.

The NBBN consists of two sets of five numbers separated by a dash: 00000-00000.

The first number is the publisher number. The second number is a book number that the publisher determines.

Here is an example from an in-game book…

sotacraft

Crafting? Not sure how to make something? Looking for more things to make? Don’t have the gold to buy recipes?

If the answer to any of those is yes, then SotACraft has your back. One of MANY crafting resources in the community I have been using, it has become one of my favorites. With wipes and updates taking place recipes have changed a lot. I have seen a few on their site that did not work for me, but overall they almost always do.

Is a nice row/table layout that gets the job done, especially when used in conjunction with other tools.

Caverns Guild Announces Second PoT – We Have More Room To Grow, we Just Need YOU!

Indi Martin Caverns Guild Logo Full Size (Medium)

Hello, Everyone!

I recently had announced that The Caverns Guild had upgraded the Player Owned Town of Neath, In Shroud of the Avatar, to a Village. That was the first of several things that were taking place needing some announcing to be done for. It is with a lot of excitement I get to announce the rest of this stuff!

I am going to start with a few quick summaries, and then few a say additional words. I realize this is a bit on the large side as such posts go, but am hoping that with such cool announcements and the support we are showing to Shroud of the Avatar as part of the community, you will take the time to consider them.

-First, In addition to becoming a Village, Neath is slated to become a Mountain Biome on Release 32. The name is not changing.
Castle

-Then we have an additional biome that has been purchased which will be an Underground Biomed, connected to Neath! This PoT has been bought as a Hamlet. The name is “The Caverns Under Neath”.
CavesOfSolace-AlternateView2

-Finally, we ARE recruiting! We are looking for both Guild Members and Residents. The two do not have to be connected in any way, and I will say more on that in a moment.
attack


In a moment I will share with you a piece that my Guild wrote regarding looking for people to join the guild. Before I do so though on behalf of The Caverns Guild and myself, I want to say thank you to Time Lord. After all of that I also have some specific community establishments we will be creating in Neath and Under Neath, I wish to share.

Time Lord is very much behind this addition to the Caverns Guild and Neath. Without him contacting us as well as his contributions neither the addition of another PoT nor the upgrade would have happened. Thank you Time Lord for your belief in us! I would say more but cannot find the words.


This was written by members of the guild with input from all. I will say a few words of my own after that, and on some additional, but related topics after these words from The Caverns Guild!

Indi Martin Caverns Guild Logo Full Size (Medium)

To all ‘n sundry:

The Caverns guild is currently looking for a few new members. We are a small group of active and creative players that tend to think outside the box. We are loosely organized, and enjoy hanging out and helping each other.

Many of our guild members have been involved in innovative and creative endeavors in SOTA. These include (as just a sampling) the NBTT (New Brittania Theatre Troupe headed by Lord Baldrith), Vyrin & Womby’s “Writers of the Round Table” and their “Unreliable Travel Guide” series, Womby’s film company, “Acting Out” and his Isle of Ghosts story-quest island POT (located off the north end of Spindrift Isle) and various events and contests such as ‘The Shape of Things To Come“. Just recently our Lady Kate wrote a ‘New Player Handbook‘ that Portalarium will include in all starting players’ inventories!

This is just a small sampling… there are many more endeavors currently underway by various members of The Caverns.

The people we are looking for would be creative, non-traditional, self-motivated, easy-going and have a good sense of humor. If you tend toward mild insanity, don’t mind a bit of rowdy drunkenness, and have a suicidal desire to leap off any high place — this may indeed be the guild for you!

Here are a few additional items of interest:
Our guild leader, Sir Stile Teckel has been around since the kickstarter and before. He is an Ultima Dragon! He has created an AWESOME website “Caverns, Dungeon’s & Beyond” at thecaverns.net (which is full of great stuff like the weekly podcast, Echoes from the Caverns and also The Caverns Store). Stile is well-respected in the SOTA community for all his hard work and his commitment to making the game a success. The Caverns, Dungeon’s & Beyond website also hosts our guild’s forums, and we have a teamspeak channel available to guild members.

As a guild we encourage diplomacy and tolerance and will not be engaging in PvP or guild warfare. (Although we certainly want individual members to follow their own consciences. ? )

Our guild now has two POT’s! A mountain biome called ‘Neath’ and a nested underground biome, ‘The Caverns Under Neath’. We will have several lots available, and our guild members will get first pick of lot placements. Neath & The Caverns Under Neath are located on the south coast of Spindrift Bay, between Brittany and PaxLair.

If this sounds like your sort of place, then please come visit us at thecaverns.net/Discussion and introduce yourself. ?

My turn!

We have an LOT to offer members and residents, and I am going to share that with you. It’s a long post because we have THAT MUCH to share. We will be EXTREMELY careful with whom we share with, and I will never risk any of my personal property. Thanks to a growing permissions list, though, the game is giving us the tools to share what we have, without risk.

Neath is going to have some establishments available to the community that has never been announced until now! Let’s talk about the planned layout first, though, so you can visualize things a wee bit.


Picture where you enter on the Mountain Biome. Right at the starting point is a little sort of path up which opens into a large plateau area, right at the entrance. This will be our town center and where all public/community buildings will be placed.

Alternatively, you can zap into The Caverns Under Neath, and you will be in the underground biome. The town center will be directly in front of that, where you are accustom to seeing us set things up.

Residents of the PoT’s will, for the most part, be free to choose where they place in the biome. We currently have an excess of lots and so can accommodate most reasonable requests if we are adding someone to our clan.

guild town map

Current plans for the town center in Neath include (and being announced for the first time in some instances!):

LIBRARY!

The Great Library of Neath! I am using a Tax-Free lot in Neath, which will be a public library. It will include either a 5-story or arena basement, whichever is decided will work better. The library will be run by Womby, Vyrin, and Myself primarily with additional help from the guild where and when needed, and as people want and are willing.

We hope this library will contain every book every published in the game, although I realize that may not even be possible. It will also run events to trade, sell, and buy books, such as book fairs! We will gladly accept all book donations, and we hope to establish trade with other community libraries in the game.

I do not know what all we will accomplish in the way of a website for this project, but there have been talks of wanting a website which would work something along the lines of RPOTA, in being an extensive database. The idea being that an author can submit various form categories of their work, which can then be queried by users. This could include trade lists, needs, haves, etc., so as to affiliate trade for the collectors, bookstores, and libraries.

PLEASE if you are willing to work with us on setting up such a website contact me. We are a small guild, and we all carry a lot of project loads. The website is very iffy at this time without more people that can setup and code such a site.

We will have vendors at the Library.

contractor-md


tavern

TAVERN

The Stone Mug is a Village tax-free lot, basement (5 stories or arena), and a house I am supplying, to be a Tavern in Neath. Womby will be the Head manager of the establishment with myself (owner) and willing guild members helping out and filling in wherever needed.

We will have vendors at the Tavern.


Row House

THE HEART

I am putting a taxed row house in Neath for myself to live in. This will be a combination of the Neath caretakers office, guild headquarters, personal home, and so forth. It will go in the town center and most likely get a five-story basement. I will live in the five-story basement as my home in Neath, as will the Neath caretaker “Oddjob”, which is one of my alts and manager/owner of bother towns for purposes of permissions.

The main and above ground levels of the house will be used to host guild meetings, a place to meet up, formally join new recruits or take care of other business, talk with other players and guilds, store supplies and decorations being shared by the town and or guild, and any number of other things. Obviously, with a row house not being very large it will serve for those purposes only when large enough and when not another location will serve instead.

For instance The Caverns Guild also has a City sized lot that will be being placed outside of Neath in one of the larger world towns which will serve as a combination of those same sort of purposes outside of Neath, but will be limited to the use of Guild members only rather then a combination of guild members and Neath residents.

I will be using the vendor at the row house but if I have room on it will share as available.

In time it is our hope to have the town center being a large market. We plan on eventually offering a full set of crafting stations for public use as well as other tools bound to properties that can be shared with the public.


12362677172022248945nicubunu_Comic_characters_Putting_a_banner.svg.med

Sundries from Beneath is a town lot I will be placing, if possible, in one of the major world cities in the game. This will be a combination Inn and vendor shop. I will be sharing vendor space with guild members in exchange for help with advertising and running the place. I am not sure how much space everyone that wants some will be able to have, or even if we will have to put in some sort of waiting list system or what have you. However, I will be sharing what I am able.

The majority of the interior and basement I plan to turn into an inn and rent rooms to players for gold if this is something that is worthwhile to do and there is a market.

I am placing a full set of Royal Found crafting tables at this establishment right away for public use. I have multiple other items that will be placed here for public use. These are a combination of services being offered to our customers and furnishings for the renters to use. In time when I can acquire the top level in game crafting stations, I will update the place with them.

I’ll also take a room or a basement level or some such at this establishment to use for myself.


Castle

Stonedeep is our City sized lot which I am providing for guild use. This will be placed in one of the large world NPC towns, and I am also providing a house and basement to go with it. Five stories or arena as far as the basement goes, whichever works better, we will retain both.

Guild members will have permissions based on their time and roles in the guild for different things. I will be donating a lot of crafting stations to the building right off the bat, if not a full set. In time I hope to have a complete set there. I also hope to have multiple different chests set-up for things from donations to sharing items, to lottery stuff, or even for emergency equip, meant for guild events raised from guild funds.

The city lot IS taxed, but I will be reducing it by 50% each month. I hope that guild funds, just raised from doing things like guild events where maybe we put a small percentage into the funds or something like that, would handle the tax without actually making a dent in the coffers at that point.

I’ll try to take a small room somewhere at this location as my office. Big enough to meet in the game with a couple of people about guild topics, but anything larger than that we would use the meeting hall. The place will serve all the functions a typical guild hall normally would.


Hourglass

We have many more shared resources, but I have spent enough time on them at this point to give prospective people an idea of what we offer as benefits. Obviously, those benefits will have restricted access which goes away over time as we get to know and trust each other. We have to be careful of bad apples, though.

As far as Guild vs. Resident.

Obviously, we prefer people who are all in and want to be a part of both, but that’s not a requirement. Guild members will have the first choice of lots, but we have a LOT of them, and we are willing to consider people that only want to be a resident. Note though that if you’re going to be a resident we would want someone that is willing to contribute in some way, even if it is just helping with an event now and then and that sort of thing.

If you are looking to just join the guild and not reside in the town, that is fine also. We have members that will not be doing so and those that do not own a house. There is no housing requirement to be in our guild in any shape or form.

One benefit of the Guild House in the City will be, I hope to offer private rooms to guild members that need a place to store some things and sleep at night!

So you can sign up for one, the other, or both and that is ok! Just understand that the more someone is offering, willing to contribute, the more priority they will get in turn. That does NOT mean we do not want the casual player o those not offering a lot.

We have members that are not even playing yet, may not for a while, and that will be casual players. We are open minded and easy to live with!

I could say and share a lot more but would like to wrap this post up as I have a guild meeting in 20 minutes. I would just finish with saying, do not be intimidated in looking to join us because we have a lot of members that have a lot of community recognition. That is really just a partial representation of who we are and while we enjoy it, we do not do what we do for those things. We do it out of enjoyment!

We just want mature people, that want to enjoy things like we do and that won’t cause trouble. I see us as a bunch of cave mushroom group of peace loving and creative hippies!

1236267512436936542nicubunu_Comic_characters_Laptop.svg.med

We do not want to make joining hard, who does? If you go to a guild though and ask about joining, unless they would have reason to be already familiar with you, if they just say sure without even wanting to get to know you, then you need to be asking yourself if you are joining the right guild.

Let’s face it; there are evil people in this world. You don’t want them in a guild you are joining, and if the guild has no protection in place, then you are going to have them fo sure. No matter what the protection you will get them, but its important to do all you can to limit the pain.

When I recruit a person in the guild, I just ask that someone in the guild knows them and vouches for them. More is better. What this means is just get to know one of us. Me, or someone else. Make sure you like what you see and vice versa.

Personally, if you drop me, a note I’ll meet you in the game and well adventure a bit together. Maybe also have a Teamspeak conversation for a bit. I’ll ask you what movies you watch, what books you read, and what you had for breakfast and invite you to do the same. A little conversation and a little gameplay together is the best way to tell if someone is a MUTUAL good fit for a guild. An individual can be an excellent person but may not fit into a particular group well. We just want to weed out the creeps, make sure you’ll be able to survive our quirks, and be happy with us.

Ok, all, lots of love and peace from Stile Teckel and The Caverns Guild!
