Wurm Online is a game of darkness. Really, the entire world is balanced on what will happen after the sun sets. If a player isn’t careful, she can find herself lost and alone without a torch to light her path. I don’t mean to make the daylight out to be a haven from danger; a player can die during the day as easily as at night. But at least during the day, a far-off shelter can be aimed for. Unless there’s fog, of course.
OK, look. Wurm Online is a game of super-scary death things, but the night is particularly scary. That’s what I meant.
When an old Vanguard: Saga of Heroes buddy of mine let me know that he and his friends had built a giant maze in Wurm, one that can actually keep players occupied for hours and can possibly lead to injury or death, I jumped into a tiny rowboat and paddled my way south toward the Deliverance server. I had to see this thing for myself.
