  1. Stay off my lawn!

    People are interesting. I recently returned after a long absence from Wurm and decided to make a home on Xanadu. I really wanted a mountain top deed this time around and a friend showed me a recently disbanded deed a top a nice mountain. It’s roughly 3k dirt/slope above the water level with very nice views. When I first arrived there wasn’t much there except for a bed, 2 large carts, and a few bsbs. All the buildings were gone. There were no roads into or out of the area. There was a fair bit of terraforming already done. It was a neat place so I set down a deed. There was one deed to the south, and that is owned by the friend who showed me the spot. The only other deed in the area is NW of me. Going diagonally it’s roughly 110 tiles from deed border to deed border. I put down my deed in early November and I had never once seen anyone at the deed NW of me log in. When I would stop by the deed it was teaming with hell hounds, all their off deed structures (like fences) had rotted, and many of their penned animals were dead. Some of the buildings were started but never completed. Thus I figured the person(s) had quit since they didn’t appear to be playing any longer. Since placing my deed a friend placed another deed due west of me. He put it down at the water level creating a boat dock for us. This deed is greater than 80 tiles deed-edge-to-deed-edge from the seemingly abandoned deed to the NW. He placed the deed on what was a very small leveled spot (by small i mean a handful of tiles) and a 1-tile wide tunnel with no mine door. This tunnel started up the inside of the mountain due west of my deed. It was full of critters, switchbacks, and collapsed tiles when we explored it. There were also spots where you nearly had to climb to get further up due to the poorly planned mining. At the top of the tunnel was an exit with a 1x1 wood shed, a large cart with about 25 damage, a forge, and 3 bsbs. I knew who owned the cart by examining it, and that match the signature on the bsbs. I assumed that the 1x1 shed was also his since the cart was in a pen attached to the shed. To this day I have never seen this person in my local. We eventually decided to build a tunnel all the way from my friends new deed at the water to the top of the mountain to my deed. As part of this new tunnel we reused the 20 or so tiles that were part of the dilapidated mine. With the help of friends we made a tunnel 166 tiles long, 3-tiles wide, with fully reinforced walls and floors. Lastly my friend Roysta manicured all of the ceiling tiles to give it a very finished look. It’s very impressive. We excavated more than 25,000 shards not including sloping the floors and finishing the ceiling. In addition the tunnel contains 42 ore veins. It was a huge undertaking and i’m happy with the accomplishment. Then a few days ago (about 2.5 months after placing my deed) someone shows up in my local. He says he’s from the deed to the NW. He says they’ve been playing on another server all this time. I offer to add them to the mine doors so they can have access and that’s the end of the conversation. The deed to the NW is on a plateau in somewhat of a bowl. We have a mine door that opens to this plateau that gave them excellent access from their deed. Once in the tunnel they can go down to the docks we’ve built or continue up to the top of the mountain where I have built roads connecting all the way back to Glass Hollow. Yesterday I see the guy from the NW deed again in my local. I wandered down the mine and encounter him and another villager of his in the tunnel one driving a large cart the other a wagon. There’s a small part of the 166-tile mine that sits in between the two deeds that is covered by neither. This section contained the bsbs and the forge that I found when I arrived. I had since filled two of the bsbs with shards from the mining project so they wouldn't rot. The third bsb had about 60kg of quality ~13 gold ore I had mined. I arrived just as they were finishing loading up all my stuff and were carting it off. They also took some frying pans, nails, and a small water barrel. Perplexed as to why he felt the need to take a bunch of stuff I messaged him. First he denied taking anything, but then says “if you want to keep things, put them in a locked bsb or on deed.†He said “we've been here since day 1 and that tunnel is not yours, you may have expanded it and use it, but its not yours by a long shot.†He follows it up with “so you can take your flimsy ownership over a tunnel you appropriated after the last guy abandoned it, and either deed it, or stop whining.†I don’t care about the stuff. Just the day before I loaded up one players boat with 2.4k of nice quality shards just so they wouldn't go to waste. I would have happily given them the shards had they asked. What is really astonishing I remember both of these players from gold 1. They aren't newbies. Yet they feel justified carting off a bunch of stuff since I “stole†a mine tunnel located more than 80 tiles off their deed and feel I've wrongly invaded “their†area. I guess they want me off the lawn. I would have expected better of veteran players. A friend of mine points out that the social aspects of wurm can actually be the most challenging part of the game at times. I think he’s onto something.
