One year ago today, on 26 Dec 2016, I installed and logged-in to Wurm Online for the first time. I lasted maybe 30-45 minutes before I logged off and said "no thanks". But something made me log back in a little later, and it stuck. Over the past twelve months, I have enjoyed the company of new friends, both on my home server of Independence. and elsewhere. The WO community is strikingly friendly, helpful, resourceful, and skews much older and more mature than other MMORPGs I've played in my lifetime. I have encountered players who play 12 accounts simultaneously and power game to its fullest, and I have encountered folks who spend so much of their time just helping others to achieve their goals. I think this is a very giving community, and for the newbie who sticks it out, there are a lot of great things to be had in Wurm Online. Special thanks to all the people who answer questions all day. Whether they're staff or not, a lot of folks have spent time to help me along the way, patiently answering question after question, explaining concepts, and sometimes re-explaining concepts When I was starting out, people like Archaed and Hannaliese and Mitzie were so generous with their time with me, and I thank them. And for fun, an excerpt from my very first /tell conversation in WO, with @VirusMD: Logging started 2016-12-27 [04:45:57] <Virusmd> i take it your new, what server are you on?

[04:48:32] <Virusmd> you try asking around for someone who operates a deed for newer players? [04:50:26] <Finndar> Dude, I barely know what I'm doing here. There is SO MUCH to learn. Just taking it one step a time right now. [04:51:30] <Virusmd> ok well indy is the oldest server, its the most used/populated generally so there should be alot of ppl there willing to help you out, a good step at this point is a safe place to base from [04:51:41] <Virusmd> use your freedom channel, thats server specific. I offer space to new players, but im on Pristine, its not hard to switch servers thoe [04:51:52] <Virusmd> im sure you noticed how easy is it to die early on [04:52:30] <Virusmd> it is alot to learn, its fairly intuitive once you get the basics down [04:53:33] <Finndar> Death and I - we are well acquainted today *laugh* [04:53:35] <Finndar> THanks.
