After years of tireless work, Ganuk has once again found himself in the position to expand his business. He has hired a driver to operate the worm so that he can stay back at the station and handle the administrative and maintenance side of things.

This means he'll also be able to keep a closer eye on the people waiting to use the worm. He can be a stickler for order, so don't be surprised if he won't let you try and use the worm out of turn. Beyond that, procedure should be as it always has.

Since he can spend more time maintaining the worm (thus keeping it in top working order), does that mean the worm will likely move faster?

the last time he expanded he got even slower so I'd hate to think what it's like now

Yeah. The worm speed really needs to be upped. I don't use it often, but when I do theres no less than 4 people sitting there waiting for it. -.-

take out some of the lame destinations, like New Rigel and Lowangen, and Desert Thorn. waiting in line for some numbnut who's too lazy to walk is really annoying

Take out NR, add PC.
Remove Lowangen OR Desert, no need for both.
Same with Tellerium, Templeton and FGK. Just keep Templeton, anyone can walk from Temp to FGK or Telle.

I would recommend removing FGK, desert thorn (or rigel) and probably arcane.

Arcane is closer than rigel, but you need lev to get there.

People don't go to New Rigel on the worm because they're dumb, they go to new rigel on the worm because you stole it from them last week.

Why would you need to go to rigel on the worm? Just tell your mount to run there, doesnt take that long. Run or walk there, dont be lazy.

Arcane or any other place where u need water travel should not be taken off the list, because its very difficult for 1st classers to ocean walk with their little stamina.

New Rigel and Desert of Thorn are so close to Rune you can get there way faster walking than waiting for the worm.

Tellerium and Tempelton are very close to each other, might be good to scratch out one of these destinations.

If Ganuk is going to go to the trouble to completely overhaul his invention to make it work faster, he'd likely have to raise prices to compensate for his time, effort and undoubtedly more expensive parts. Just as a guess, seeing as I work so closely with this talented gnome, I would think prices may come close to doubling.

It is awful that the worm goes to a city right next door yet an entire continent is overlooked.

GO TO PC! (Or Deceit if some prefer)

The End.

He lowered his prices last time he upgraded.

I say he's due a four month vacation on the sandy shores of Auryn, though.

Perhaps after the years that ganuk has been making money, Reechani, he can afford to upgrade?

If you're going to get realistic about it, a restaurant doesn't double it's prices when it wants to expand...it saves and does it when its business is good.

Maybe ganuk would consider buying 1 or 2 new machines with the money he's saved up from constant use over the years (which I have no doubt is in the many millions). Therefore there wouldn't be one line for one machine, problem alleviated.

Lets say ganuk gets used 3 times every hour, and he's been there for atleast 4 years... (maybe not in that exact location)
3 times an hour would be one ride every 20 minutes, which seems a little low, but well just use that as a hypothetical. 5k per ticket... that's 15k every hour for 4 years.
15,000(per hour) x 24(hours) x 365(days in a year) x 4(years)
= Approximately 525,000,000

I think ganuk can afford a new ship / driver and possibly a yacht in the bahamas. =p
