The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Aldous]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
I've been following Realm of Shadows since the beginning and have
watched it evolve into a completely unique and exciting experience.
Realm of Shadows is derived from SMAUG code, but I have played many
other SMAUG MUDs and I've never seen anything like this.
RoS has truly random items, random names, random affects, random pops
- it really adds a lot to the game. There also is a TRUE multiclass
system - not that crap remort stuff. You start as one class and later
on you can dual to a second class and switch between them back and
There is automated questing, random experience point bonuses, tiers,
a god lead following system, optional PK, stat re-rolling, stat
training, and so much more.
One of the best parts is the dedicated staff. They are always willing
to help out - way more than any other place I've ever seen! They are
very open to player ideas. I, myself, have submitted ideas only to see
it implemented within a few days or less! I really wish there were
more players and I'm hoping that this review will entice more people
to come and give it a chance.
