The Language of Wurm

Let this be your guide to the unique language of the world of Wurm.

If you are new to the world of Wurm, no doubt you have already come across some unique words, phrases, acronyms, synonyms and even spellings that are found almost everywhere: the Wiki, Forum, Chat windows and the User interface of Wurm.

Sometimes different words mean the same thing

Deed, Settlement and Village all mean the exact same thing. You will find that all three words take you to the same place on the Wiki.
Paper doll, Character sheet and Character window likewise all mean the exact same thing.

Sometimes similar words mean completely different things

Smithing, Armour smithing, Blacksmithing, Blade smithing, Chain armour smithing, Jewelry smithing, Locksmithing, Plate armour smithing, Shield smithing and Weapon smithing are all completely different activities with completely different skillsets!

Wurmians must learn to be precise in their communications. The more precise you are the faster and more accurate answers to your questions will be. When the day comes that you reach out to help another Wurmian, your precise communications will be a blessing to them!


Typically Wurmian is very similar to english, specifically a mixture of European and American english. You may see words which might appear incorrectly spelled to you (at first), but with time you will come to recognize the language of Wurm in all its splendor.

Acronyms, Abbreviations and Wurmian words - (Wurmwords)

Just as life on any planet is rich, deep and diverse, so too is the world of Wurm. Over the centuries wurmians have developed words and abbreviations to use in their communications with one another. Some of these were sent down from the gods and have remained since the creation. Others have found their way into common use over time. A familiarity with these will speed you on your way, whichever direction you decide to take in the world of Wurm. Note that in normal day to day communications, letter case is for the most part ignored by most Wurmians, however, when you see Wurmwords inscribed on items such as tools or weapons to indicate spells or enchantments, priests and craftsmen will always use the correct letter case.
