Craft-o-fight-a-build Wurm Online is one of the MMORPGs I’ve always been more interested in hearing stories from than actually playing myself. Go read Graham’s heartwarming tale, perhaps, or Quinns’s murdertale. On the flipside, I’ve heard too much griping about grinding and frustration. Well, spin-off Wurm Unlimited [official site] can change that if you want, perhaps making it the friendlier face of Wurm.
Released yesterday, Wurm Online lets folks run their own servers, whether simply to play alone or to tweak settings and make life easier for their chums.
