The Plague of 1062

Recommended Posts

Freedomites, Epicurians, Chaotians lend me your vocabularic comprehension!


Hear ye hear ye!


In the year of our lords and dark demoness' 1062 the peoples of the Wurm realms have been subjected to a vile plague that threatens our populations.

Our top priests have identified the source of this scourge and have given it a name.  Toxic Player Syndrome.  They also recommended ostracizing the infected vermin from our sewers.


Toxic Player Syndrome is a social plague spread through contact with contaminated ink used primarily when inscribing documents in far away lands.


We do not support the use of documents outside our realm, or far away lands for that matter.  Still, this plague washed up on our shores and threatened to infect our peoples with no regard of nobility or cleanliness.


Victims of the plague may exhibit symptoms such as bloodshot eyes, unusual facial hair growth, clumps of hair missing from head, loud voices in unusual octaves, and uncontrollable bouts of cursing and screaming.


Our healers will do their best to reach your afflicted ones and provide treatment or carts to haul off those who have achieved a pungent stature.  Remember to bathe no less than once per year to ward off these foreign borne maladies.



The Plague Carriers of 1062




...some other people for other reasons just for the heck of it. (because they needed to be removed!)

*The names listed above were the known forum identities of those banned, not necessarily the actual names of the banned game accounts.




For the rest of the universe!


Greetings Wurmians!


During Wurm year 1062 someone thought it would be oh so funny to breach the access of accounts of our members by violating the security of their private forums.  We have identified the culprits and are removing them and others from Wurm Online as to protect our community from these unscrupulous individuals.


This violation occurred through resources not connected to Wurm Online or its services and there has been no breach of our security, but this is an attack on our active players and we will not willingly tolerate this kind of behavior.


If you have shared your accounts with these individuals we strongly urge you to secure those accounts as Wurm Online and Code Club AB are not liable for losses incurred from account sharing which we do not offer support with.


We are doing our best to help the affected individuals regain their accounts and items so that they may continue with their lives.


Appeals of shared account bans will be processed normally for review.  Appeals of those directly connected to the violations will not even be entertained.


Thank you,

Team Wurm Online


P.S.  Some feel that we should have stopped PVP in Wurm Online due to this situation that occurred against one of our pmk kingdoms.  I would like to bring a touch of clarity as to why this was not done.  This occurred due to a 3rd party system that we have no control or support for and was ran by players and was their sole responsibility.  It would have been a horrible precedent to interfere with the proper operations of Wurm Online for such a thing.  We have options that do not require us to cancel a vital component of Wurm Online on knee-jerk reactions.   We have also noticed that there is also misinformation spreading among players about our actions as moderators.  The facts are simple.  The damage was done even before the affected could alert us.  We as moderators have not been sitting idly by and letting these "cheaters" "get away with it".  We searched for the lost items and as soon as we could we confiscated them.  I hope that at least clears up a bit of the misinformation.




For those who find themselves banned!


Greetings Earthanoidal creature!


We will not play these games with you.  You have done something vile and reprehensible that we will not stand by and tolerate.  We will not entertain the notion that metagaming access to other player's accounts is acceptable behavior.  We do our best to provide an entertaining and encouraging environment in which to spend your time with us and our members.  You have gone beyond acceptable social behaviors and committed acts that are both illegal and deplorable.  Do not expect any personal correspondence with us as you know very well what you did and why you have earned your bans!


Some of you are banned due to the recent attack on one of our player made kingdoms in a pvp environment via metagaming, and some of you are no longer welcome in Wurm Online for the consistent bad behavior and gaming of the system to avoid penalties.  Do not expect any personal correspondence with us as you know very well what you did and why you have earned your bans!


We will gladly continue on without your metagaming and abuse of our system.


Good Bye,

Team Wurm Online
