Wurm Online: New Deed

I have a new deed in Wurm Online. I haven't really pulled up stakes as such; it's only slightly down the hill from my old place, which has now been handed over to Carawyn, as a character can only own...

Wurm Online: Terraforming Territory

The college term is over, and I have enough spare brain to write some blog entries again. The only game I've been playing for the past couple of months has been Wurm Online, mostly because it works very well as...

Wurm Online: Let me tell you about my deed!

I am getting enormous enjoyment out of Wurm Online at the moment. I've established myself on a nice spot on the West Coast of Deliverance, and I'm slowly building toward having a solid deed there. There have, of course, been...

Wurm Online: Told To Move On

So, that nice spot I'd found in Wurm Online? Was apparently too near one of the neighbours for his liking. The hammering noises that construction makes can be heard for some distance in the game, and the "local" channel -...

Wurm Online

I've been concentrating pretty solidly on my tabletop games for the past few months, and World of Warcraft has had very little attention. I still log in once in a while to do some auctions and to manage the guild...
