While I’m disappointed that Wurm Unlimited won’t be getting everything in the next large update that Wurm Online received (500 recipes mainly) that doesn’t stop me from being excited about the changes coming. It will add a lot of content to the game and I know it’s still in alpha testing so I may not see those changes for some time, but I’m already preparing.
Sybaris is coming along nicely. Moumix has done a fantastic job at getting our deed looking amazing. It’s surrounded by a fancy stone wall with arches at the N S E W entrances. I worked on the waterfront portion, and his wife has done an incredible job with the farms and stables. We’re still lacking a few buildings and the walls are not quite complete yet (plus the smithy building needs a roof) but I have loved watching it all take shape. I also have my smaller deed not too far away and I spend some time there each day doing the farming and taking care of a few animals that I own (sheep, pigs, a horse or two). It’s not as enormous as the main deed, but I wasn’t looking for anything very big.
There’s another server event coming up shortly (remember I play on Sklotopolis), a Kyklops slaying. I’m looking forward to that. The previous event (troll king) was a lot of fun. Being able to teleport to the events has made a world of difference to me.
I’m not sure what skill I want to work up next as far as grinding goes but I’m sure I’ll decide on something before too long. Making cheese is pretty high up on my list for whatever reason. Maybe trying some fishing, too.
Moxie started playing on the server a few days ago, she’s a fellow gamer friend of mine. It’s great to see a few familiar faces. If you’ve never tried Wurm Online but have been curious about it, Wurm Unlimited goes on sale sometimes on steam, so you may want to add it to your wishlist and be informed when / if that happens. Of course since Wurm Online is free to play (technically, your skills are pretty capped though) you could always try it there first and see if you think you’d enjoy it before shelling out any money.
I have certainly gotten more than my $30 worth out of playing. I think I have over 1,000 hours logged in the game on steam… sure a lot of that is AFK hours, and pre-baby hours, but either way.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
