to our family like I normally do, I asked what they/you would like me to cover in this post. So here goes...
Kala Wildcat: What if the chance comes up to sabotage an enemy ? ... I mean ... that can't be a good thing right? Has anyone ever done it?
Great question Kala! :) In all honesty, I have sabotaged another line, since then they have returned the favor & we called it even. I say all is fair in love & war. Use your own discretion on sabotage. Here's some facts for you though to consider before committing an act of sabotage: The person you sabotage *will* be given every other letter of your name. Now they may or may not be able to figure it out. Mine was easy (JLYEN MDSN) and they may come after you if given the opportunity. It's also expensive to sabotage at which you will only destroy mayhapsibly 4 of their acres at the most. You need to determine for yourself if it's honestly worth it in the long run.
The chances of actually having one accepted that you have sent are very slim. I highly encourage you to bribe *if* you can afford it. We always welcome new members to our family with open arms & bribes are no different. I would say always upgrade, then bribe. :p Upgrading your living arrangements, livestock, shoeing your horses, etc should take priority. In the end, it's more gold for you to expand your empire. :) When/if someone does accept your bribe (even if you arranged it for someone else) make contact & say "hi". If anything this game is a wonderful way to expand your friend pool.
Furlongs? Sounds dirty!
Dreamer Demontrond: can u blog explaining to peeps how to finger out fathoms + furlongs etc? lots still seem to struggle :P i.e google "fathoms in 47 furlongs" etc.
Fathom: There are 2 yards (6 feet) in a fathom.
Furlong: 40 rods (220 yards or 660 feet)
Though not seen too often...
How long is a Rod? No, not that rod. Get your mind out of the gutter, you dirty bastard. A rod as in 1/40th of a furlong. It has its origins in the Old English fuhrlang, meaning “the length of a furrow,” or the distance a team of oxen could plow without resting. These and many other interesting (and mostly obsolete) units of measure can be found at the Dictionary of Units of Measurement.
These are easily googled as well... Or just click here: Google
There's been some interest expressed that some of you would like to have an event or some sort of get together to get to know the rest of the family. I think this is a fabulous idea. If anyone would like to help me set this up or has ideas/suggestions... please let me know.
