Pictured above, my new deed in WurmOnline. Well, technically it’s not mine quite yet, I have a 24h wait period before I can obtain it, but it’s on the road to being mine. That fence there is something I helped build, and I was really happy doing so. The property is quite large, on the other side of that fence is an iron mine, on the left hand side a house will be built. Up the path is a forge, an oven, and some food storage bins as well as some holding containers. When I was tired of working on the fence I decided that a little break was in order, and thanks to a trusty new staff that Arkenor gave me, I set out exploring.
You have to be careful in WurmOnline, you don’t want to do things that will anger other people, especially not to their property. I wandered around until I reached some wilds, unowned by anyone. I found some meat that I could haul back to my own deed and turn into casseroles. I found some fur (used to improve beds) and some cheese. I even found some pumpkin seeds but apparently those are quite hard to plant. I’m looking forward to getting a garden going in the future, once I flatten some land. Which of course takes time, and skills.
I’m having an absolute blast in game, which doesn’t surprise me at all because this is exactly the sort of game I enjoy. The graphics are not that bad (if you ignore how everyone looks and just take in the scenery) there’s combat if you want it, and the fear of never knowing what you’re going to run into. Literally. While I was wandering around I came to an area that was infested with trolls. Considering I can’t even take down a young wolf at this point in the game trolls were a creature that I really didn’t want to mess with. In avoiding them I also stumbled smack dab into a lava spider, which are far worse than regular spiders – and those mess me up pretty bad already. I was encumbered due to all the goods I had found along the way, inching my way back to my own deed which seemed hours away (and it was indeed a good hour to walk back), with my health lowering as a young bear got a hold of me. If you’re lucky you can find some spirit guards that will help take care of those wild critters blocking your path, but when you’re spending your time roaming around in underdeveloped land, the chances of that happening are pretty slim.
I’m really excited about my progress in game so far, and can’t wait to share it with everyone in these blog posts. As always, have a wonderful day and happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
