A Thank-You Thread in Town Square Posted September 16, 2012 I would want to thank Hellspawn. He is not a well-known player by any stretch of the imagination, and has been on Wurm on an on-off basis. However, when I started out on JK-Home goodness knows how long ago now, I started out in Newtown, lost and confused, not knowing what to do with myself. (I can still picture the entire area now), and I remember wandering all around the area - up the hill leading to the west, down to lake cove around Dottie, and lurking on the deed to avoid a notorious brown bear. However, I was setting up a small area of my own, and little did I know I found a neighbour. My first ever neighbour, Hellspawn. He owned a large forestry area just adjacent to my area. He was extremely kind and well mannered, offering me supplies, knowledge, and above all, friendship and support. I had very little in the way of skills or knowledge, so he taught me many of the basics (This is back in the days pre-tutorials) and even after I set up a rubbish basic area, without me knowing he came around and improved all of my walls and housing for me. Before knowing me for long, he allowed me access to everything he had, and we trusted each other. Anyway, I started to develop my skills and grow my own mental wurm encyclopedia, and I was expanding. I demolished my first area, built a larger house. Soon got bored of it, expanded the area, rebuilt a new house. I ended up developing and being in the area bordering Newtown for a long while, and ended up making more and more friends, becoming more well known. Before long, I met Danypos, who would preceed to set up alongside myself. We worked together on everything, he built a large U-shaped stone house, and we worked together. I constructed a guard tower, and after a while he left, entrusting me with his house - I worked from there and lived there, and constructed the first fight arena (as far as I'm aware) on the shore of Newtown. I still remember the competition I held there, a grand time indeed, with MD, Hellspawn and everyone. There's so many more fine details that could go into this story, I could talk about Fathertime over at Whitehill, I could talk about Dottie down at Lake Cove... great memories from a long time ago. (Starting to feel old here!) and I have far too many people to thank from over the years, the Wurm community really is a fantastic one on the whole. However, my foundations, the basis of my character, Dannyiron, all originated from that coast alongside Newtown, and the basic knowledge and skills that enabled me to do everything I have done in my Wurm career - much of it came from Hellspawn. I haven't spoken to him in years, don't know his real name, or where he comes from, and I'm fairly sure he does not play anymore, but even though he doesn't know it, I owe him a great deal, and I am very grateful for everything he did, all that time ago.
