    What's the goal here? Collect wood? The different kinds? Most collected wins?

    our goal is to give life back to the vesper museum, the wood is turn in and once or twice a year i take the points that i have gotten from all the people who have done this event and have a grab bag auction along with other items i have gotten with my own gold, the winner is mostly @SlayerofBunnys but we do have other who run along side him my self is one of them, but the winner all way get something for there hard work, plus you keep the other item you get from chopping wood,

    The Vesper Museum has 10 different levels of displays they can be achieved based on 'donations'. Similar to the Moonglow Zoo gold can be donated at 1 pt / 15 gold. Additionally it accepts donations of boards as follows
    Normal - 1 pt
    Oak - 3 pts
    Ash - 6 pts
    Yew - 9 pts
    Heartwood - 12 pts
    Bloodwood - 24 pts
    Frostwood - 48 pts
    Fortunately the museum will take piles of boards or in commodity deed form. Mare collects the wood and totals the pts for each lumberjack. The ones with the most points gets the rewards she listed.

    The museum has what could be considered a 'gift shop' from which various items can be 'purchased' using the reward points. A few times a year Mare will use the points to get some of the high end rewards which are then auctioned off, with the proceeds then being donated to the museum.

    The museum also takes various tinkerer made objects related to wood working for reward points.

    The unfortunate thing is that while the reward points that an individual has obtained never decays, the point total that the museum uses to determine which displays are shown decays fairly rapidly. We are having a difficult time trying to keep it at level 3 and have rarely been above level 4. Right now to reach level 4 it needs just over 12 million points, which in terms of cash would be 180 million gold. Then to reach level 5 would be an additional 40 million points, which would be 600 million gold more. I feel the decay and/or the point total per display level need to be re-addressed.

    Don't do it this month Mare! With the event being the week of Thanksgiving, my chopping time will be seriously cut down. Make the wager in January when us northerners will be snowed in and on equal footing.

    Sorry to hear about the ice. Hopefully it won't lead to a TW win.

    I was only able to chop today, so you will be pleasantly surprised with my total. There was a frostwood tree just outside my house and it stayed that way most of the day :)
