Pristine user here. On my way out of Pristine actually. What attaches me to a server more than any element, resources, mountains, mobs, pretty farm land, dirt, ocean, fishing, is the community. Each server seems to have it's own "flavor" community wise, and that seems to be the deciding factor overall, we don't play Wurm alone. We are often surrounded by villages, alliances, and PMK's. I moved to Pristine when I found out about a village called Garden of Shadows and met a great group of players. However, the people I knew seem to have all drifted away. On my way out of Pristine actually. What now? That's how it works, the landscapes, the fjords, valleys, mountains, they've grown populated, lively, and touched by the hands of many. The landscape is pocked with evidence of life constantly. Abandoned Villages(Q.Q), wells, guard towers, players, and the like. The Land tells a story as do the players and communities that occupy it. Wow, kind of got lost on all of what I thought on that one.
