It should be Wilba

Defiantly not, She is defiantly staying Hamlet exclusive and I agree with it. She is like the Hamlet Character mascot

Merms aren't monsters(they don't have the monster tag like spiders,hounds etc),they're just pretty agressive like tallbirds.

Also her info says: ''Strongly dislikes Pigs'' instead of the used twice ''Is a monster''.

Well actually,that's right.

But why would catcoons and bunnymen be included in this hate? also i think it would be pretty illogical if they added monster tag 'cause:

-Two characters already have this con.

-Merms aren't monsters.

Even though merms arent monsters they're still treated like one by pretty much everything. The only reason I can imagine them not being monsters is having something to do with the gorge and how normal goats/pigs/whatever can turn into merms (but I doubt this is intentional)

Oooooh! She looks so neat!

I wonder if she was always a Merm or if she’s from the Gorge?

I thought she’d be a boy, not gonna lie

Also when I think of Wurt, I think of Wirt from Over the Garden Wall.

Hmm I wonder if this will effect me making a base in the swamp area now...?

 

Also seems I need to start saving up even more spools

Yeah, that seems to be the point of them, they all are Constant/Other-Dimension-But-Earth Born, which makes sense since new Human Characters would throw a wrench into the current lore, why would Charlie take someone random into the constant for no reason? I think its nice we get some non human characters since we can learn a bit more about the creature's culture

These have to be the dumbest explanations I have ever heard, I am a writer myself and from what little I can gather on DS Lore there are plenty of ways of adding more human characters into the game without having to have Charlie or Maxwell pull them in.

The first and easiest way of Explaining it- we have no idea how long exactly this “constant” has existed.. or better yet even (as more and more island biomes are added in future updates) how big and vast it actually is. Therefore in that theory we could say that there are people that have been trapped here even long before Maxwell ever showed up and that we just have just yet to run across them out in the world surviving.

there are plenty of “fallen survivors” skeletons all over everywhere on the game map to more than backup this idea.

Well you see you dont work for Klei. So to call their logic dumb when they haven't even finished the storyline is just plain rude. As a writer would you like some random online insulting your work?

The fallen survivors around the map are implied to have been brought by maxwell, too. When he inspects them he says “ha, i remember that one” or something to that effect

Video games for the most part are NOT story books, they are games.. and as games are designed to be a fun gameplay experience, I didn’t get any explanation when suddenly there was Carrots coming up out the ground as Rats.. and that’s because it was a fun gameplay experience- not a story driven one.

i Don’t see anyone going on rockstars forums and raising pure hell about how you can store a rocket launcher and a mini-gun in what appears to be your butt, but that’s just how video games work, they don’t HAVE to make sense, they just need to be fun.

end of story.

Just because the story isn't a primary attribute to the gameplay doesn't mean the story is irrelevant. You can discard it if you like but it won't make it disappear.

Oh, what do you know, forumites ardently debating the "gender" of pixels... again :roll:

 

Though I for one am glad Wurt can build merm huts, will remain to be seen how exactly this new character will fair in pubs and in the hands of general player-base. As they say, "Devil's in the details". I remain skeptic and have a feeling it will follow the same road as Warly, mostly 'cause of the strictly-vegetarian thingy.

I think gender and Age in DST is irrelevant, only because there are head cosmetics for characters clearly labeled “boy” that make them look like a girl, Webber and Wes being the main culprits, they can also wear the female skirts soo uhh.. unless Wurt has a very specific look to her that clearly identifies her as female (such as having Merm Boobs) then I can probably put her in men’s clothing and just call her a dude.
