I'm a PCG ally and ex-villager who has just built a deed near PCG, thought i'd share my build with everyone to show what you can do in wurm.
I don't have a good before shot, but it was basically a slope, i had to raise the path up and dig out the remaining slope, i bought an enchanted shovel to make this quicker and i also got some help from a new villager Alfie with all the digging.
By the way the forum is limited to 4 images per post, so this is done in multiple replies, lame.
Here's the earliest one i had, i've raised the ground, flattened the first part of the deed. Still have to dig out that hill.
Dug out the first stage of the first half. I decided to dig out the hill into flat/slope pattern to make it easier to dig it out properly later, that way i wouldn't be digging on steep slopes using climb.
