Mutual Aggression is where two or more clans have officially agreed to WAR. HOW WE ARE DOING THIS: Two or more tribes agree to WAR, they will make a written agreement in the Global or Discord channel. If in Global they need to SCREENSHOT the agreement and post in the DISCORD #valheim-chat Channel.
YOU MUST SCREENSHOT OR PASTE THIS INTO THE #finding-the-last-oasis Channel in our Discord.
Your clans are allowed 24hours for war.
Clans will receive a 24 hour period of ORP where NO other Clan can propose war with you.

Please be considerate of other players and do not rush the last two bosses (as of March 1st). Game progression is tied to ALL players of a server. Not just you. Please see the below infographic for understanding.

Please, Backup your character Saves.
First, locate your game files, which you'll find here:
Your AppData files might be hidden, however, so on Windows 10, you can go to your search bar and type: %appdata%
This will probably open at the AppData\Roaming folder, so back up one step and select the AppData folder, and then LocalLow, then IronGate, then Valheim. There you'll find folders for characters, worlds, and screenshots if you've taken any. Copy and paste them to a safe location on your PC, like a folder on your desktop. Now if you need to restore your world and character, you've got a backup.
One MAIN Land Claim of no more than 100 x 100 foundations. Portals and such may be around the outside perimeter of your claim. Up to 3 Outpost Claims of an area of 40 x 40 Foundations will be allowed.
Do not Block the way of Paths or entrances to other parts of the Server Map. Please make sure there is enough room for others to pass your property, either make a path through your base or make sure there is sufficient area surrounding your fences for others to pass to the new areas. Do not block areas that produce rare or unusual resources. This includes "Hodor the Trader", Mob Camps, Delves, Crypts, & Troll Caves. Do not build in such a way that you enclose such an area and leave no way through for others. Do NOT block the AREAS the Boss Shrines are in. This means do not build within render distance of the Boss altars. These are needed for game progression and should not be blocked.
It is the responsibility of the Player to make sure they refresh all timers on the servers they play on. If you do have a situation occur where you need help, please think about getting a tribe/clan mate. ALL ADMIN or OWNER claims are off limits. Decay is Different for Valheim. Please read here:
