The freedom is probably what makes Worldforge stick out most from other virtual worlds. In the Deeds world, you're free to alter the environment to a very large degree. The world is simulated in real time, with plants growing and withering and animals breeding and dying. Expect the world to always change and evolve.
Our aim is also to make the game self explanatory, in that you shouldn't have to know much beforehand before venturing into the world. This is of course something that always can be improved, but it also gives us an excuse for not providing an too in depth description here.
Just grab the Ember client, jump into the world and have fun.
