The Woodpeckers Sanctuary

In the early days of Travians the woodpecker was a common sight. Bar breasted Piculets, Great Slaty ones, Ivory-billed, Imperial ones, almost all woodpeckers were easily to spotted. But now with the arrival of over 1000 woodcutters things have begun to change. Already the Ivory-billed and the Imperial woodpeckers are assumed to have become extinct. Did you know that the Imperial Woodpecker is the largest extant woodpecker! Yeah it’s a shame we can't enjoy his presence anymore. Those woodpeckers were a beautiful sight!

The members of the TWS1 or fully known as the Woodpecker’s Sanctuary are here to make a stand against the brutal extermination of woodpeckers by the hordes of inexperienced man that call themselves woodcutters! We of course don’t mind to see an experienced woodcutter doing their job. But we demand the removal of all woodcutters below level 5 or those that don’t use an axe for cutting trees.

We furthermore demand a big sanctuary for all woodpeckers. Each guild should be obligatory to pay a weekly contribution of 1 silver piece. This in order to pay the expenses of the new sanctuary and to pay for future expansion and/or the building of new sanctuaries!

Please join our cause. If interested in doing voluntary work to keep the woodpeckers save from extinction you can send an application to: Mothereath & Grox; administrator. We always welcome volunteers who want to join our guild.

Also visit our new wing TWS1(BT)! And please note, if we are full you can always join our wing.
