So, I've started up with Wurm again. I've added 2 months of premium to a character I had played last summer, and am playing on the "Carebear" non-pvp server Freedom. Whats more I've found a site to place a deed(only paying folks can place a deed), and will begin terraforming once I've finished up access to my mine. I'll have access to Iron on deed, am currently using a neighbors well for water, and am situated in an area that seems to have good hunting. Downsides? While I am near water, I'm situated far above it and it will take some time to build a path down to the water. Unfortunately I've been unable to scout that specific piece of coast line, but hopefully it's open for if/when I plug a path down to there. Access to clay is a bit of a trek as well, and I don't think I'll be able to alleviate that for some time.
If anyone is interested in trying out Wurm, or coming back, you can play on the Freedom server for free. Your skills will be capped at 20, and you won't be able to do things like command a cart being pulled by horses or cows. While I tend to play solo, I'm willing to help folks out getting started. I'm not necessarily looking to start a village, but I don't mind putting folks up for a while and show them the ropes. I can't offer much for ammenities at the moment seeing as I've only just tapped into an iron vein in my mine, and have not started construction on my settlement at all. But that stuff will come.
I'm situated near the Eastern Plains(big brown spot on east side). /t Doanark Message if anyone is interested
