Instructions for getting to the villages can be found in [URL="http://www.pcgamer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=537"]this thread[/URL], here is a direct link to the [URL="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8461031/Guide%20from%20ND%20to%20PCG%20GV%20%20PDF%20%281% 29.pdf"]GV pdf[/URL]. It's difficult keeping the guides up-to-date though so some of the features may have changed.
Or if you are a map kind of person, it's marked on the [URL="http://wurmonline.com/forum/index.php?topic=26400.0"]Golden Valley map found on the Wurm forums[/URL].
As for your plan hopefully that won't be possible, otherwise it would mean that everyone on the premium servers at the moment would be at a disadvantage. Still worth a shot though, be good for planning potential training plans for Epic.
(Something we'll hopefully have a chance to discuss in the new forum area.)
