Besides the incredible friends/community here, I draw my inspiration from mainly two sources in Wurm
CELTIC INSPIRATION: I am proud to have Scotch/Irish lineage, and have always been obsessed with these cultures. My dream is to one day visit Scotland and Ireland, but until then I content myself with listening to nostalgic Celtic music, gazing at pictures of the Scottish Highlands and trying to recreate the untouched rustic beauty of those places here in Wurm. I was so excited a few years back to discover this game, which would allow me to act out medieval-era life, explore vast lands, roleplay a Celtic girl if i wished, and best of all create my own Celtic paradise
My three deeds of "Loch Lomond", "Isle of Innisfree", and "Loch Caledonia" (named after real locations) were born from this fantasy (you can see that my inspiration is rustic, cozy, beautiful mountain/lake views). Since the Celtic culture/lifestyle has always centered around the land, so also do my deeds in their location and design. I prefer rolling hills and untouched slopes to harsh, flat, 'grazed over" megadeeds.
(Here are some of the pictures of Scotland that inspire me most) https://imgur.com/a/dv7AaRM
There are also beautiful Celtic songs about each of these real places, take a listen!

**** I would be remiss if I didn't also mention the profound admiration and inspiration I have for "Glengarry" at R18, Pristine. It's rolling mossy hills, stone fences, and stunning views truly inspired my own deeds and aesthetics. (She really has the "rural pastures" look down!) ****
Second Inspiration, My Best Friend Sidereal
It was a fateful night, during my first year of Wurm, I was weary from setting up my deed Loch Lomond, patiently carving a hollow out of the mountainside to nestle into. I had heard of this place with an enchanted name, Glengarry, and decided to take a sail down to check it out. Little did I know that calling out to say hello to a name in local on the way, would change my Wurm life forever!!
Since our first meeting that night, Sidereal has been my best friend, sister, confidant and co-adventurer! Oh the memories we have made and the hours spent chatting away, sharing our hearts, dreams and sorrows and laughing at her ridiculous puns There are too many wonderful things we have done to even name favorites here, but together we built the Isle of Innisfree deed, picked lingonberries on the top of the world, dragged vicious turtles and hell horses home as they nipped at our heels, and gone on crazy adventures .. .. . including retrieving my corpse from an ill-fated spot more than a few times! Here's to forever in Wurm, darling!
