In this first episode of the video series, Wayfarer introduces the viewers to the deed he created on his Wurm Unlimited server. Wurm Unlimited is a fantasy RPG MMO that can be played as a single player as well as multi-player game on one's home computer or online hosting service. Wayfarer created this creative mode world on his home computer and then uploaded it to a hosting service so that he can invite others on and bring the adventure to a whole new level.
Wayfarer takes the viewer on a tour of his deed, showing off his animals, his buildings, his mine, and the resources on the deed. The deed has a public area for new players to start off, get their skills up, and eventually move off on their own. New players are accepted via special invitation after they introduce themselves through the comment section on the YouTube Channel.
In the upcoming videos, Wayfarer will provide some Wurm Unlimited tutorials so people can see if they are interested in playing the game either on their own, other servers, or on The Wayfarer Project. It is a very fulfilling game and this series is designed to expose people to this wonderful game that often gets overlooked.
Episode 02 - Completing the Guide's Tutorial Missions Part 1
This episode of Wayfarer's Wurm Adventures begins the tutorial section of the series. There is a guide in Wurm Unlimited who sends you on tutorial missions to learn about the game. In this episode, one will learn about the Wurm basics for survival. This includes obtaining resources, foraging, botanizing, digging, cutting wood, and making a campfire.
Episode 03 - Completing the Guide's Tutorial Missions Part 2
In this episode, we continue the guide's tutorial missions, learning how to do some of the basic things in Wurm that are necessary. WayFo encounters a surprise in his endeavors, however, as he searches for some exposed rock do do some tunneling. On the way, he encounters a wildcat engaged in a fight with a cow. WayFo engages the wildcat to save the cow's life. This episode provides a wealth of information and servers new players well as a Wurm Unlimited tutorial.
Now that the Guide's tutorial missions are complete, we learn how to begin in Wurm Unlimited through creating some important beginning items and building up some important skills. In this episode, we will learn to farm, tend crops, and eventually harvest them. We will learn how to make a fishing rod to keep ourselves fed. We will learn basic carpentry and making some wooden items like a mallet, clay shaper, and spatula. We will learn about some basic cooking how to keep yourself well fed when beginning in Wurm. One will also learn how to use special wood types sparingly, so that it is less likely that that you will run out of important tree types.
This episode continues with tending and harvesting crops while working on making some of the beginning items that are so useful to have in Wurm Unlimited. WayFo makes some pottery items that include pottery bowls, a pottery jar, a pottery measuring jug, and a pottery flask. Then, he makes some iron items, such as a small anvil, a butchering knife, a stone chisel, a file, and some small nails. These items will be utilized in the upcoming episodes.
In this episode, we will learn about animal taming and animal husbandry basics. Both of these subjects are rather extensive and can be confusing at first. Yet, this episode is designed to just teach that basics and what are the things that should be done early on to build up the animal taming and animal husbandry skills. These two skills are important to work up. Beyond skilling, it's always fun to raise and breed animals that provide many uses. One can harvest resources and food from animals, as well as use them for enjoyable and important tasks like riding and pulling carts or wagons. To be specific, WayFo shows one how to tame and care for chickens (hens & roosters), sheep,, cows, bulls, and horses. He even gives you a few warnings about unicorns.
As the title indicates, we build a large cart in this episode. Carts make life a lot easier in Wrum Unlimited. The large cart is especially useful because one can have animals pull the cart. WayFo shows the viewer how to make a large cart and use only 2 shafts of cedarwood to make a cedarwood cart that is more resistant to decay because of its wood type.
In this epsidoe, we dig out a mine. There are a few good and bad choices to make about where to start a mine. There are also some tips provided in this video to help one dig a mine more quickly. Having a mine is very important in Wurm because this is where one can find different ore types and stone types. One does not get very far without at least iron for smelting.
In this episode we will look at mining techniques and ways to keep your mine organized, well reinforced with support beams, and efficient with not needing to make to many support beams. At the same time, we will look at how to keep from making steep slopes int he mine and how to work your way down in a logical way to avoid opening up the water level.
One of the essential things that new players need to do in Wurm is work up their base fighting skill, their base weapon skills, and then their specific weapon skills. All of these skills can be brought up to 20 and even some of them a little higher by using the practice doll. The practice doll does not help skill up defenses or shield skills, but it does help one work up offensive skills. It is a very effective way to do this. It is a must before one goes adventuring in the wild where aggressive creatures lurk. Viewers also get to meet Zorts in this episode. He has just joined the deed.
Episode 11 - Further Fighting Skill Training & Weapon and Shield Skill Training
In this episode we take the fighting skill training tot he next level by engaging some of the farm animals for skill training that cannot be done with the practice doll. In order to work up fighting sub-skills like normal fighting, defensive fighting, and aggressive fighting, one needs to actually engage some creatures in combat. Additionally, the practice doll does not allow one to work up shield skills, but this can be done safely by using some of the creatures that you keep in your pens. This can even be done without killing the creatures.
In order to expand access to the entire world of Wurm on the server, Wayfarer builds a corbita. The corbita is one of the large sailing vessels in Wurm that holds a good amount of cargo and 7 players. The building process requires a lot of wood, rope, and cloth for sails. Wayfarer takes the viewer through the process, while trying to keep the time of the video down through summarizing processes, but eliminating repetition.
