A Wurm Christmas Present

Each year the developers of Wurm Online give players a unique gift for those who are premium. It has becoming a long tradition, one I quite enjoy. This year the reward is a checkers board – and you can actually play the game with another player. It’s quite beautiful, and opens some opportunities for people to get together and play at impalongs and the like. Players who missed out on the unique version can also craft one in game.

I’ve been trying to collect the rest of the Christmas gifts from years gone by, I think all I’m missing is a garden gnome.

Thank you Wurm Online developers & staff!


Down Goes a Kyklopse

I joined in with 87 others to take down this foe on the harmony server. It was a lot of fun and I was glad to participate. I also joined in a sermon group over at the Sklotopolis deed and have been working on raising my faith up. I left my character there for a few days 24/7 to provide .02 faith to other preachers, and I myself went from 40 to 52. One of my long term wurm goals has always been to reach 100 faith, but I don’t see that actually happening. As this is my Fo priest, I’ll be content with 70, which will allow me to cast genesis.

My vynora priest recently hit 70, and now I’m working on getting enchanted grass created with her.

I’ve also decided to join a very large village, something I probably would not have dreamed of doing in the past. We’ll see how that works out.


New Pen – Complete!

I finally finished making bricks and fence bars for the new horse pen / farm field along the side of my deed. I’ve moved all of the animals over, and they seem to enjoy the larger space. I also got a new piebold pinto horse!

This deed on Independence is now basically “complete” – minus two buildings that I haven’t planned out yet. I finished the hanging bridges, I finished the fields and fences, all I really want to build is a church / temple for the priests to stay safe in, and perhaps a shipyard building of sorts. I haven’t planned anything yet, though. I want to build the temple in slate, and that’s proving problematic since my mine currently has zero slate. I was thinking of mining it on the mainland and bringing it all home. We’ll just have to see what I can find.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Bridges – Complete!

Maybe now we won’t fall out of the sides of the towers… I finally got these completed, I love the look of the tall iron fences. I’m planning on disguising them slightly with some trellis to provide a bit of greenery.


Deed Progress

Progress on the deed is coming along VERY well. Club Code decided to run their very first Black Friday sale, so I picked up a year subscription for my Vynora priest along with some silver to make sure the deed has lots of upkeep (over a years worth on each of the deeds I currently own). Moumix has been playing again and has helped out around the deed, and that has inspired me to try to ‘complete’ it as much as I can.

Yesterday I reached 36 ropemaking, and I created one of two rope bridges that will adorn the village. I love the way they look. I need 44 ropemaking for the second bridge, and I have a few odds and ends to complete (a fence around the farm, the front farm will eventually be transformed into a shipyard as well as a chapel of some sort, and the house needs more furniture) but it is coming along nicely.

I’ve also started grinding hot food cooking – I want to unlock all of the recipes that look so delicious out there. I want to build a distillery in the mine, and create cider and wine, too. There’s just always so much to do in game, I absolutely love it.


Look Ma’ – I joined a village?

Waking Hollow. They started out as my neighbours, but since I’m currently playing a Fo priest main over on Cadence, I decided to give up my deed and join an actual functioning village. I’m pretty sure they think I’m a new player, and I didn’t go into big details about who I actually am, but they gave me a nice warm welcome, and I’m working away building a 3×3 home to use. I haven’t joined a village in a VERY long time, but Wurm is one of those games that IS better with people, so why not.

Since priests can’t improve items, and Fo priests in specific can’t cut down trees or pack dirt, joining a village is a pretty good move. Sure, I could technically survive without doing those things – but what fun would it be?

Hopefully the place doesn’t just fall to pieces now that I’ve joined. We’ll have to see.


Welcome Committee

Found a few visitors at my place when I arrived home from collecting some rare forges. I suppose I shouldn’t complain, at least it wasn’t a dragon…


Spring

I love spring in Wurm Online…


Moved: Cadence

The Harmony alliance I was a part of just wasn’t working out for me, so I traded 25 silver 1:1 over to Independence and that left me with 7s to play with. I have been working hard on that deed and I love how it’s coming along. Then I ported all of my characters to Cadence when it opened – I’m not a fan of the idea of spreading out the population further, but I do love the spot I found. I also found 3 coloured horses right away and that made me pretty happy.

I plan on making this a little country cottage deed. Wooden fences, timber house, farms, that sort of thing. Will I stay? We’ll see. Maybe I can find an alliance to join.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Goal Achieved: Boat Cave!

One thing I wanted to do on my deed was to create a water entrance that would lead to an underground cave. Inside the cave is my mine (of course) as well as my brewery (aging wine underground is ideal). Yesterday I managed to complete this goal, after mining out over 4,000 lead ore to break a node that was in my way. I can’t wait to get the inside all neat and tidy, I plan on reinforcing the walls and then paving over them, though I’m not sure if I want to do it in marble or some other stone. We’ll have to see! In the mean time, I’m just tickled that it is complete.
