The Site

The Millenium Impalong was a crafting and imping (improvement of items) event that occured around the year 1000 on Freedom (September 1st - September 6th 2009). Featuring an expansive imping house with players of all trades, as well as an Inn, Vynora altar, dock and mine, it is a popular community site.

The Millenium Impalong was a celebration not just of the Millenium but the work we've already put into the Freedom Isles, and was a great place for the community to bond as well as to get tools imped.

This lead to a variety of projects around the site such as the roads and the mine to help make life easier for those inside the impalong house.

During the impalong around 30-50 different people came by to work and/or have fun.


The site is open to all and is maintained by Ols in the hopes that other visitors will also preserve the area.

The Inn and Workshop and the general site are free to be used by anyone, as long as they keep it in a generally decent order.

Possible ideas for the future:

  • Connect the site with the roads all the way up from samling to allow it as a newbie pickup spot or make the site available to new players on Freedom Isles. For now a road will extend from Rockcliff to Halcyon and pass through the site.
  • Make the site into a trading point due to its central location. Judging by the way the Freedom economy works, it may take a while for this to catch on.
  • Use the site as a reststop for those sailing long distances, stop over for the night maybe take advantage of the iron veins or forges to imp some of your tools. This is currently feasible since an Inn and a Guesthouse already exist.

Future Impalong

Ols is deeding up near the impalong site and is thus considered the caretaker until the next impalong is held, and will hold the writs of the workshop and inn until that time.

The next Impalong is likely to occur around Christmas time, as is usual for impalongs.

The Projects
