I've spent over a week purely into infrastructure trying to get here... but Sunday (2/19/12) I finally finished and broke through, and the colony has started!First, an intro into my journey to the wild:I first started with a small outpost 3k out from spawn. I setup a nice little building, chest, bed, secured it from monsters, kept it well lit...But within 2 days, someone had stumbled upon it, and stole everything valuable and started tearing up my tracks.Thankfully I logged in, found it, and picked up the rest of the tracks.This taught me something.... I need to go farther. So I've dug, and dug, and dug, and finally reached a spot that is over 20k out from every outpost! (not giving exact distance). I've spent over 7kr on iron and gold ingots and diamonds (for picks)It's a mountain area, with normal, swamp, sand and ice biomes all around. Also a SMALL NPC village nearby.We just have started building, still a lot to go.I think I'm freezing on member intake, got 7 currently, and will be invite only in future. (so don't ever ask to join! that'll kill all chances )Overview of colony: http://aikar.co/eternia.pngWe are part of the Empire Wild FederationI've not started construction of my house yet. Just marked the land of where I will be building. working on the other aspects of colony first.
