I have come back after a long time away. This place used to be a lot of fun. Maybe it can be again. Right now there aren't many people about. But that might change. For now you can explore and get stuff you would normally be competing for a lot more easily. Real estate is pretty cheap right now.
I have just refound this mud after years of looking. I first played this about 10 years ago before it was called 'classic' it was amazing back then and is still amazing now. The fact that vampires and dragons feel so powerful is great. Iíve been playing a dragon and it takes time to level up but it is worth it you feel powerful and not just squishy. The player base is great and helpful and the imms are helpful. So if your looking for a place to hang or even one to call your mud home (they have them here as well) come on in you won't regret it.
See you there
Been playing Dragonball evolution for years. The only mud I still enjoy. Great community, lots of events, and frequent updates. If you're a fan of the dragon ball franchise, I highly recommend checking it out.
This Mud. Is the greatest mud I have ever laid my eyes upon. I know that's a pretty common claim for these types of game, but I promise that this time is real. Every Line Matters. Every single line of text in this game drips with hidden meaning and inneundo that would stump even Hemmingway. The hidden secrets I've found to which I am the only discoverer number in the hundreds. I've built stories with people whose subtlety in their roleplay hides depths of dreams, wonders and failure. The setting is a dark fantasy dystopia. The world is deeply broken and its gods are self-serving, racial tensions are at all time highs due to recent history, occupied territories see executions daily. Your character is thrust into the middle of this to act as yet another pawn in the grand scheme. From there you can choose to develop yourself mentally, physically or something in between. Every choice matters, every mistake piles onto another. As a result everyone feels unique to play around, the sum of their character's deeds becoming the foundation of their rich backstories.
The mud itself is pretty good the vast amount of race/class combinations you can make are basically endless. The problem is this reward system for playerkilling that makes the elite too strong and literally ruins all fun for any clanned playerkiller because of it. It has gone unaddressed for years. That coupled with the worst IMMstaff I have ever encountered makes it kind of a toxic enviroment to play in. People just bitch and complain on the out of character channel all day and then one of the admin will tell them to suck it up or some other asshole remark that makes people basically quit. The playerbase has dwindled down to almost a minimum from the great MUD it once was. At this point the game is basically the owners cash cow, it is a free mud but basically it is ignored by the owner and he just collects cheques from people who want in game advantages purchasing con cards.

I started playing Dark and Shattered Lands (DSL) in college around 1996 or 97, I can never remember. Over the years, the game has had it's ups and downs, but over all I have really enjoyed my time on DSL, and the players and imm staff are awesome. The game code has undergone massive changes, and a lot of really cool features have been added, including: areas, storylines, mechanics and more digital flavor than you can imagine. Whether you want to concentrate on roleplaying or player killing (or both!), DSL provides a fun environment to explore and discover. The player base is friendly, and we help newbies get rolling so they can join in the fun.
If you haven't tried it out, give it a shot! Currently (Summer, 2023), our numbers are down, and we could really use some new people to come in and join us. Con is right around the corner, and it would be a great time to come!
Haven of The Embraced has been a fixture of my life since I was 14 or 15. I love the players and the community that we have on Haven. I never got into Table-Top roleplaying, but roleplaying on Haven is a lot of fun, with the right partners. I do most of the development for the game and have done so since approximately 2012 and I enjoy putting new features in and seeing players enjoy them. I take player feedback seriously and do whatever I can to make sure everyone that logs in will enjoy their experience, however they choose to play Haven.
I left for a few years due to personal reasons but I'm back and I've been putting changes in on a regular basis since. I take pride in this game and want to make it as popular as it had been back when it first opened. Hopefully, we can rise through the ranks and be in the top 10!
I love this mud. The mechanics are great and getting better all the time. Greg and Arcades have put a ton of work into this and it shows. I am really looking forward to the growth of the player base as this mud is new and still undiscovered. If you want someone to play with just look for any character that starts with Bel.
I do NOT recommend this mud! As it seems like most MUDs of late, one person rules this mud. If they decide they don't like you for whatever reason, expect to be miserable playing this mud. If you walk blindly into this MUD, you will be fine. If you have an opinion on anything and it disagrees with this power, forget it. Your name will be dirt and expect to not have a fun time. You will be silenced. If you persist, you will be kicked off. You have been warned.
