Tim Edwards has kindly created a secure forum for discussion of topics relating to the Epic server, this post will give you the details you need to gain access.
Step 1 - Introduce youself.
Since Epic has not yet arrived it has been decided that we will just require a short post in [URL="http://www.pcgamer.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=31"]The Grizzly Beer Inn[/URL] introducing yourself (name, current status, intentions, etc.). This will allow people not interested in playing on Freedom in the mean time to join in the Epic discussion.
When Epic actually arrives anyone who is not a part of the Epic village will be removed (except maybe a few trusted Freedom contacts), and a new policy will be put in place involving meeting up in-game and joining the village.
Step 2 - Put in a join request.
To join the Wurm Online users group you need to first log in to the forum (if you haven't already), then look up to the grey bar near the top of the site and click on User CP. Look for "Group Memberships" on the sidebar and click it. Then you should see a list of the available groups to join, find Wurm Online Villagers and request to join.
And that's it. From then it's up to myself and Jekev to grant you access. See you on the other side.
