First off, I play on multiple servers, but lately, I have been spending a lot of time on Tepium to help the new players.
As of late, there has been a problem with people cutting down everyone's apple trees and just leaving the spoils. This told me that it was being done out of spite, and not by a new player that didn't know any better. Entire forests, cut and the resources left to disappear. Even in forests with a single apple tree, I noticed that it would be the only one cut down and nothing taken (hence how I knew it was an apple tree). Then I became the victim...not once...not twice...but 3 times. 30+ Apple trees cut down each time. I spoke about it in chat, and the problem persisted, and it actually became worse. Many on the server have had enough, and many of the new players I spoke with were/are starting to get discouraged by seeing all of their hard work be taken away in an instant with no recourse.
So I took the matter into my own hands...
Since we cant kill/loot other players on this server (Tepium), I did the next best thing...I went and found a couple Ferocious Bears and a Wolf, and led them to my Dominium.
Needless to say, besides the corpse or two that I find daily next to a chopped tree (And yes, that means I know who you are now and I know where you live on the server. You don't want me to bring a few predator friends to your front door do you?), my trees are staying mostly intact... ;)
Sure I have to be careful when entering/leaving my Dominium, but it's well worth it! Now if only we could loot the corpses! (Evil Laugh)
