Server:  US-Knight-9

 

Day 1:

 

We followed the Talos banner and began our journey into this land of madness.  Throne, Skywise, Xanoric, Jakari and Vessa answered the initial call as we kept to the outskirts of the city.  

 

Vessa purchased a small suburban home disguised as a converted chicken coop.

 

PvP at the starter town was intense....someone bashed in the door to our chicken....house.

 

Player bandits roamed the roads....

 

We ventured past the southern bridge and built a shack made out of straw....next to the road.  Xan and Throne attacked an earth elemental....and then ran away, leaving a sleeping Vessa to fend for herself.

 

Skywise, Throne and Xanoric began exploring the canyon beneath the bridge.  Skywise, Throne and Xanoric were killed by giant glowing spiders.

 

We went further into the swamp canyon and found a magical portal......made a campfire and survived for a while.

 

Throne, Sky and Xan ventured further into the canyon and realized no-one else was around.  Since we were the bravest of all players, this made sense.

 

Elite goblin found and killed

 

Throne looted goblins chest

 

We established a thatch residence and tamed two boars and a panther....server firsts.

 

Xan gets first boar stuck on rock

 

Throne found 4 large brown rocks that turned into bears....house destroyed.  Also a server first.

 

House rebuilt by Skywise and Xan.  Elephant killed for meat.

 

 

Day 2

 

Throne awakens to a panther destroying the house and killing everyone.

 

Throne camped next to a canyon wall and survived until Xan shows up.

 

We build new home...out of wood.

 

Sky and Vessa show up, we tame some boars and a moose and pack our bags for the north.

 

Xan gets second boar stuck on rock

 

We ride from morning until night....Griffins try to eat us.

 

Throne witnesses several bears that turn into brown rocks.

 

Throne ridiculed relentlessly for bad eye sight

 

We cross the mountains, passed a lake, crossed a river...bears attack.  We run.

 

While surrounded on all sides by bears and panthers, Xan gets 3rd boar stuck on rock

 

Cross more rivers, it gets cold...we see snow and ruins....full of bears that are not rocks.

 

We find a place where we are freezing to death and decide to build an outpost.

 

Floors and walls are up....Griffins attack.

 

Vrocks tamed.  Everyone is still freezing to death.

 

Two new boars tamed

 

Xan gets 4th boar stuck on rock

 

Wolves attack, bears attack, players attack.....we survive.

 

 

Day 3

 

Skywise finds a great place in the mountains to build our main base....it's not freezing...everyone rejoices.

 

Kristos joins us

 

Lightning bolt discovered...."mage snipers" exist for first time in online gaming.

 

Trees, rocks, iron and copper are plentiful in this new place...we begin building our base.

 

We build three buildings...and are attacked by a Dwarven guild....they kill us and take everything.  Homes mostly destroyed.

 

Last of our original boar tames is murdered in cold blood....RIP Jalapeno the boar.

 

We rebuild.

 

Tamed a Kebo / Kobo.

 

Tamed two more boars

 

Another Dwarven guild attacks....we're defeated again.  All tamed animals killed....base looted.

 

Bakath, Damis, Trusin and Grim join us.  Meat shields....yes!

 

 

Day 4

 

Bakath logs in to more players attacking and looting.

 

Shae joins in the fun.

 

Base walls destroyed, all items looted, all tamed animals killed.

 

We begin building a stone base.

 

Xanoric purchases a horse

 

Horse dies 3 minutes later to centaurs

 

Players attack again.  He picks up Sky with his bird and drops Sky from a great height to his death.  Throne kills the bird with lightning bolts....evil looter falls to his death.

 

Drayvn joins the fray

 

 

Day 5

 

Stone base taking shape, player attacks continue, we mostly fend them off.

 

Xan tames two new boars

 

Xan gets 5th boar stuck on a rock

 

Sky discovers how to unstuck boars

 

Extended exploration of the north commences.

 

We continue to be among the most advanced groups despite the raids and looters.

 

Hyenas are tamed

 

 

Day 6

 

Stone base 60% complete

 

Attacks on base have lowered significantly

 

Tamed animals last for more than 24 hours since we began playing.

 

Main base and Barn structure protection enabled

 

Magic towers created and tested.

 

Wyvern's tamed, Griffin's tamed....two more Kebo's tamed.

 

Wyverns saddled and cotp has taken to the air!

 

Shae takes to farming; builds a bed and breakfast out of thatch.

 

Scorvi's "baby legs" makes an appearance.

 

Xan tames lvl 100 boar

 

New boar killed by enemy's five minutes later

 

Main enemy base discovered by Sky and Xan...damage is done; Revenge will be sweet.

Shae searches for griffins, finds none.

 

Shae goes AFK and several griffins attack, resulting in the deaths of several tamed animals

 

Shae confirms that earth elementals are not rocks for the 32nd time.

 

Throne confirms that boars can swim and wyverns cannot.

Better it is to die in battle with honor, than to live in shame because you did not defend your people.

It's an early access game for sure.

 

Similar GUI to ark, but much different with most of the gameplay.

 

Very enjoyable so far.

Well, this post and my convo on Steam chat has convinced me to pull the trigger.  I'm going camping with my kids this weekend, but I'll be stopping by US Knight #9 when I get back!
