    Looking very homey! Can I visit for free, or does it cost?

    @Tipa – you can play Wurm completely free, skills cap at 20. I believe (personally) that a casual player would not feel hindered by these caps. They only prevent certain things, for example you need 21+ skill to break down fences and walls. You need a higher skill to ride horses, command boats, and carts. You can’t create items with a higher quality level – but you can still create pretty much everything in game with a cap of 20. You can explore any part of the world you want, you can build a house, crops, mine, etc. You do need to be premium at least once to purchase a deed to OWN land, but Wurm does not require you to do this, either. It’s just that buildings tend to decay faster if they’re not deeded, and unless you put locks on the doors (another easy thing to do) strangers could access the building and take what’s inside. Many people play for free, build homes, and have a blast. I personally do have 2 premium accounts ($10 EU for two months of premium) but it’s mostly because I wanted to support the game, and to be a priest you do need to get skills over 30.

    Sorry for the rant, obviously Wurm has captured my heart. *grins*

    Oh, I think your readers are all going to become (or are) Wurm Online players 🙂 Your passion shows through!

    @Tipa agree on Star’s passion for the game. She hasn’t found out I’m charging rent for that market stall yet mind. 😉

    Well Stargrace’s posts here, and especially the screenshots, have started me playing Wurm. The screenshot above looks remarkably like somewhere I passed through last night, too.

    I could say I’ve started playing Wurm again, since I tried it years ago. All I remember is stumbling around in almost complete darkness for an hour with no clue where I was or what I was doing. This time it’s been a much smoother introduction. There’s actually a tutorial! Mostly what I’m doing is wandering around looking at what people have built, which is quite impressive.

    It does seem to be built-up over a huge area already, though, even on one of the newer servers which I’m on. I’ve traveled for the best part of an hour now and I’m still not out of a built-up area. Reminds me of traveling through the Home Counties south of London – it’s technically countryside but you never really see anywhere that isn’t built on.

    I can’t see myself investing the time to actually settle down and build anything myself but it’s very interesting to explore and take screenshots.
