make a home for the Merm King

For the guys who are on edge, play a Klei game like Shank to get the edge off. Shank is fun to just watch your metaphorical anger off.

Also there is a good explaination to this,

I meant that in response to the 'why not name it the same as the other halloween skins' question.

Answer being that they all have different names.

...Has nobody wondered if you can put the merm king on a boat? And some merm houses/florts (whatever they are) also on a boat? Seems like a good way to spread your fishy influence without being stuck in the swamp! Merms can swim anyway so drowning wouldn't be an issue! right?

Would there be a reason to though? It states the Merm King provides strength to ALL merms. It doesn't specify "within an area" or anything. It very much sounds like once you complete the Royal Tapestry—and keep the king fed—all merms get stronk.

It's a little confusing to me how people keep talking about the Tapestry like it's a building. We can't know yet obviously, but I keep imagining the tapestry as... a tapestry,

Tapestries are just funny fabric pictures that you hang on a wall or furniture, so I've been imagining it as something you hold like the Key to the City.

Merms could be freshwater fish.  Salt water would kill them.

 

Sammy (or was it Pipton?) mentions their sick taking to the sea/ocean, and the fact they show up in the forest and SW goes to show that they most likely swam here/there after losing their memory.

@Ashkain they couldn't, last time I checked.  Built boats to hop across the river separating the swamp from an adjacent biome.  Merms couldn't follow.

Sadly this is true, for whatever reasons Merms can't board boats unlike almost every other follower.
I mean, chester and the crew, Pigs, Bunnies, heck, even Catcoons can board buts but Merms were left out. (Smallbirds and Lavae too, but I've reported this.) I do hope when Wurt is brought in a fix/update for the Merms is brought in too.

It's constantly on my mind. If the Merm king does end up being really fat like I think he might, I really want to slap him on a boat and go sailing with him.

Maybe the tapestry and the merm kings home are two different buildings?

 

Also “Hook, Line and Inker”

 

FiSHinG?!??!!?! I hope lol.

We haven't seen this sprite yet. Do you guys think it is? It looks like it might be the in-game sprite but it's a bit too detailed.

Too detailed. Might be the unsaturated portrait, but I find it unlikely that the image we got for the announcement isn't the portrait already.

Probably some other promotional material or concept art. Not sure.

I think it is likely this is her portrait art, it seems to be in the similar style of their more recent character portraits, specifically the shading.

These forums provide little to no information about this game- most of it is either fan made up speculation & suggestions or equally confusing animated short videos from the dev team.

almost all of you here probably play this game on a PC & the Developers probably even prioritize PC but.. for console gamers DST can be a pretty confusing mess of a game.

here let me just explain- We have news about Hallowed Nights Starting on the 24th, that’s all well and good and everything but WHAT exactly IS Hallowed Nights??? Is there any type of specific in game event I need to be focusing on doing like wearing costumes and knocking on pigmen doors to trick or treat for cool in-game cosmetics? 

What about Winters Feast? The Gorge?? and the Forge?? What are those? And How exactly do you even play them? 

The above listed events Really weren’t available to play on the Xbox One version of DST- I’ve seen some cool concept art of creatures and some kind of brutal pig warrior tournament but, that’s ALL I’ve seen myself and many other console players didn’t get to actually experience this content.

what we have left over is a curio cabinet full of locked skins and loading screens for content that I’m not even 100% sure will ever rotate back into the game.

when Apex Legends launched its limited time event it explained that 35 players enter the map solo, they kill each other- dead players come back as zombies and have to try to kill all the remaining players, the last 10 left alive have to try to make it onto an evac ship and escape the endless spawning undead players.

Simple, Straightforward Details.. and I’m Hoping that when the Hallowed Nights event official launches on the 24th we get detailed info on what it is & what we are supposed to be doing.

Thanks!

As always, Gulag Google search is your friend (without benefits): DST Hallowed Nights :encouragement:

This one is an yearly event, same with Winter's Feast. Rest (Year of Pig etc) are unique and won't be coming back; their specific skins maybe. Forge and Gorge probably won't come back either. C'est la vie.

What's keeping you from playing? If you're having technical issues, make sure to post them in the forums so people can help you out!

ok, so here is the issue: I forgot the name of the screen that says something about it not connecting or smthn, it seems like my PC (its a windows ten) might think its a virus (sometimes in normal ds it says it blocked by the firewall), so the only way I can play it is on my XBOX 1S, BUT I DONT GOT IT ON THERE AND IM SAVING MONEY ;-; , so I might just wait until I can get it on my XBOX, (if anyone wants to friend me my gamertag is MangleTangle111) so I hope the issue will be fixed.

Will the new skins (spear, pyjamas and hound backpack) avalable in any way but buying the starter megapack? I mean, will they be weavable or byable or , at least, obtainable as daily gift ?

Simple, Straightforward Details..

Not like the game or the devs gave us any straightforward info on how we should play the game... because DST is still DST, they want to leave it up to us to explore and conquer the Constant and they don't want to spoil all its secrets in their first announcement. If you still want to get these info before even trying to find them in the game, you can ask here, or search on the internet and the wiki (as others said, google is your friend here) ;) 

The Forge and Gorge are different story because, unlike the base game, they do have a clear goal and they actually need much more cooperation. So the devs did gave us some general description and instructions to them, but even these weren't detailled too much and we, players had to learn the exact stats and small tricks they offered. But since they won't be back (any time soon), devs won't really tell much about them.

About the curio cabinet, I don't know how it's on consoles, but on PC none of the skins remained locked (I mean, we can get all of them, either by weaving, buying or through steam market and trading). Don't consoles have also the weavable skins unlocked? Anyways, I know that the devs are working on a way to let console players buy spools to have the opportunity to weave the skins they want; idk when it'll be ready tho.

If you got an issue on PC, why not ask someone to help? A friend, a neighbour, parents; or online, either here on the Forums, on steam, or if all fails, Klei Support?
