Greetings Highlanders,

Alas, this day was going to come some day or other, it is with very heavy hearts that we must announce that Mystic Highlands will have to be closed down on the 15th February 2021 for good.
We have had a fantastic run with the server for over 4 years and had amazing support and amazing events and met some truly fabulous friends. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made Mystic Highlands what it was and the help we received with its upkeep.
Unfortunately over the past 12 months any kind of donations have all but vanished and we are simply not in a position to subsidize it any longer.
We wish you all the very best, we hope you have some great memories as we have to take with you on your next adventure.
God bless,

Valiance and Kaylie.

Dear Valiance and Kaylie,

I am devastated but not surprised.

It has been a wonderful journey and I too have made many in-game friends who I will be sad to lose. I completely understand that servers do not pay for themselves but I have seen how donations have decreased from a flood after the events to a trickle and in my heart-of-hearts knew that with visits to Mystic Highlands decreasing, many good friends leaving to try life elsewhere it was only going to be a matter of time before this incredibly difficult decision was going to have to be broached.

I will spend the last few days taking plenty of screen-shots to build a few memories. I hope to see a few folks for the last time. I shall play right up to the end before releasing my old loyal horse NadaCopper to graze free :)

Thanks for the adventure- I will certainly never forget how fantastic it was.

Everyone stay safe, healthy and lucky- maybe we will find one another in-game once more in the future!?

Well as they say, all good things must come to an end, but what a great 4+ year run it was!!!! I started here about 2 hours after the site went live and what a wild place it was. All that was there at the time was Safehold and the north and south towers-the roads stopped there. No one had any kind of skills and were at the mercy of the plentiful mobs, most time running back to the tower guards for safety. Slowly but surely we began to tame the immediate area and branch out. I knew very little about how to play Wurm and "grew up " here :) I will never forget all the hard work that Val and Kaylie put into all the amazing events that went on here-the many assaults that the citizens of the realm gathered together to repeal, the times we all went out on all those excursions to various places to either defeat evil or bring the need additions to the kingdom that made it even greater. And the great events, the fishing and archery tournaments, and those amazing auctions where always 20+ peeps would attend and sell or buy the many high quality or rare items available. Was a great time, I will always remember fondly my time spent here, all the great friends I made and how much I learned. Hopefully I can meet many of them again somewhere while gaming. Thank you so much Valiance and Kaylie and everyone else that contributed on making such a great site to play on. God bless and perhaps we shall meet again somewhere in the gaming world.
