Seeds for the New Day

December 6, 2012
What did you just say??

The other day a chunk of dullite told me (and when did ore get so mouthy?) that we are living in the 12th age of Ur. I missed quite a lot while I was gone!  My reasons for taking a break weren’t unique: I’d gotten a little bored and other games were coming out that I wanted to play. But I had planned to

Garden Route Goodness

Garden Route Goodness

I am a quick and ardent supporter of the Resource Routes. I think that, despite their flaws, they provide a great resource (excuse the pun) to all the Glitchen of Ur: easy access to what we all need.

Foxy Friends and Heavy Metal Dudes

Foxy Friends and Heavy Metal Dudes

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last few months (and really, how hasn’t someone mined it from on top of you even if you have?), you’ve heard about the new animals, foxes and sloths. From the time the two animals were imagined by the majority of Ur’s citizens in a poll of Giant proportions, we’ve been dreaming of how these two creatures

Now with 50% less house, 100% more choices!

Now with 50% less house, 100% more choices!

During the first iteration of testing for the new house (I’ll call it R1 for clarity), I made the decision to sell my cottage home in favor of exclusively using my new house. The garden plots were limited but I wasn’t quite the gardening machine I had been back at the beginning of the year. The herb plots were a big bonus

Stack it up: low level foods find their usefulness

March 22, 2012

In my previous comparison of bog houses verses garden homes, I made an offhand comment that got me thinking. I said that you couldn’t just run around with only eggy scrambles to eat. My point was that at only 25 energy a pop, you would have to eat a lot of eggy scrambles to equal a single awesome stew. And while that 8-to-1 ratio isn’t really

Beans: The Miracle Legume!

February 14, 2012
Harvesting beans

Early on in the tutorial, Glitch players are asked to tend to a bean tree, culminating in the harvest of your very first beans. When I was starting out, I was amazed. I got a handful of beans from harvesting from the bean tree, when I usually only got a single meat from the piggies I nibbled.

Cottage Crops vs. Herbal Huts

Cottage Crops vs. Herbal Huts

I am a little late to the herbal party, I admit. I love growing things: trees, veggies, fruits (hey, strawberries count!), animals. So it really is surprising that I haven’t gotten into the herbalism business yet. Mostly it’s cause I love my little cottage so much. I think there are a lot of people out there who can sympathize on that front.
