I'm not the one that's so absurd

Although having a base offers many benefits, you may want to buck the trend and not bother building a base out of fencing. Here are some tips for using noob worlds effectively, for months or even years, as an alternative base:
  • Avoid storing valuables in Toadwater hoards as anyone can steal them. Instead, consider making mules for storage and only using hoards to transfer items between characters (you can make as many mules as you have email addresses for, afaik -- just do not play more than three of them simultaneously as that is against the rules).
  • Avoid leaving idols attached to trees as anyone can destroy them. Instead, consider attaching idols when you want to sacrifice to them, chopping them off when done, then storing the idols on a mule.
  • Prepare to have stuff disappear including trees, crops, statues, taps, sap, machines, birdhouses, and birds/squirrels. Other players can also stop jobs you have assigned to workers. You may find, however, that once you get to know your neighbors, the risk of your stuff/jobs disappearing will be lessened. Also consider using lower value statues, tree taps, and birdhouses so thieves may not bother to steal them -- when it comes to getting birds this means you should attach at least a dozen birdhouses if you want to get a bird in a few days.
  • Avoid using land touching other players' fencing. Instead, consider letting the fence owners know that you are using the noob world and are no threat to them (otherwise the owners may try to harass you, assuming you mean to raid them).
  • Accept that skills like alchemy, combat, cooking, management, and mining will be more difficult for you, as will accumulating EBP and higher level tree seeds from statues. Also high level tree lordships will likely be out of reach as you will lose out on the contribution of attached idol time. If you are the competitive type, focus on skilling-up just one character and using that character to overtake players in other areas. If you are not the competitive type, have fun and enjoy the time and gold you save by not having fencing!
