The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Graak]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
I have been mudding for nearly two decades now and have multiple alts
on many different types of muds. When I show up to a new mud, it's
generally a foregone conclusion that I'll know most of the commands
and most of the classes. Therefore, I was quite shocked when I logged
on to GWII to find that I was a true newbie once more.
Trying to describe this mud is quite difficult since everything on it
is totally original. There are no rounds and no rooms. The combat
system is completely new, as are the classes which you can rebuild at
the drop of a hat. Thus, when I first created and did everything
wrong, I was able to simply shift my things around without having to
make a new alt. I will admit that it all seemed a bit daunting at
first glance, but the help files are good and the players are friendly
and always willing to answer questions and offer advice.
The world is made up of two zones: the realm and the nexus. The realm
is the safe place where people can hang out and chat and it also
contains a small number of areas mainly for unclassed people. The
nexus is the dangerous zone where all the cool mobbies, areas, and
quests are. Yes, quests on a pkilling mud. Though the realm is safe,
the nexus is deadly and you have to constantly watch your back or
you'll find your limbs laying at your feet. Also there's no 'best'
and 'worst' class. Since you can change things around at whim, the
person who you demolished 5 minutes prior might adjust and return the
favor. Thus, no one is ever safe.
The Imm running this mud is called Kavir and he is very hands on with
the place while remaining utterly laid back. He regularly puts in new
features and areas and also has time to chat with players and asks our
opinions on where we think the mud should go.
Last, but most certainly not least, this place is made to work with
readers for the visually impaired and a good number of the players
are. So if you're 'looking' for something out of the ordinary, come
check this place out cause it's a lot of fun.
