A simple question, what is your favourite thing about Wurm Online?
If you had to pick a single slice of the game that makes playing worthwhile to you, what would it be? It could be the building, making a small section of the world your own. Or watching over time as a hill is slowly dug to make way for a new road. Exploring is probably a big favourite, wandering through the woods knowing the landscape could have been changed many, many times before becoming what it is today.
For me it's looking out across the landscape and seeing a handful of pixels moving off in the distance, knowing it's another person, and wondering what they are doing. Sometimes it's possible to make something more out, seeing a green figure on top of a white blob and knowing it's somebody riding on horseback. Or a brown blob on the water, sailing by. Just watching them move about, wondering what they are up to makes that game that much more fun for me. Are they on their way home, or going too somewhere? They could be travelling to a market several hours journey away, or they might be going to visit a friend on the other side of the island. You could be seeing them at their home, walking down the path to a nearby spot of trees to gather wood for some unknown purpose. Watching a village with several people moving about is even more fascinating, they're probably not up to anything important, just going about their daily business, stopping every once in a while to greet their fellow villagers.
