Wurm Superstition It's the month of October, and in the spirit of autumn many strange and maybe a little creepy things can happen! In Wurm this usually means the oak trees come alive, and your livestock turn into crawling pumpkins, alive with mysterious life force! Wraiths cross the landscape and jack-o-lanterns adorn town squares across the Freedom isles. In this creepy season, I wanted to bring up a topic which I've thought about long and often. Superstition. I want to tell the tale of my personal favorite superstition which I've noticed in my own play time, and have never heard anyone else bring up or address. It's very strange, and could be complete coincidence. But here it is: "Over the years of working on various deeds, projects, and... experiments, I've noticed something very peculiar. I'll be slaving away, hard at work on the task or project and I'll look up at what I've done, and there, right beside me, will be standing a Freedom Isles Wild Boar. Okay, okay, so its not creepy. They're actually pretty cute. But it's strange. Not very often in the wild can I find wild boar. One does not go out hunting specifically to slay the elusive creature - because they're rare. But I always seem to see them specifically when I'm working on a big project. Something that takes a lot of work and actions. One appeared to me underground once, when I was building a roadway tunnel under the mountain I reside on. Another recently appeared while I was constructing the Central-Release Plaza (still under construction!). Even looking back through the years, I can think of other instances where the little wild piggies like to magically appear. I look at these instances as a sort of... "good omen". Like maybe the developers wrote some little line of code to specifically have them spawn when things are happening in the world. Perhaps its coincidental. Or maybe they're even hand-delivered by a secret group of GMs who fly around, invisible, spawning boars on things they like. I have no idea which one of these is true, but it certainly is very peculiar and should be something to be noted." So, fellow Wurmians? Have you encountered any strange creatures lurking about too? Has something even stranger happened? It doesn't have to be creepy, or scary. What's important is it's something completely illogical to the known game but seems to happen regardless.
