The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Amethyst]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
If you fancy a solely RP-focused MUD with no levels, quests, or mass
NPC killing, but plenty of player-initiated plots, twists, and
intrigue... this one's for you.
The quasi-medieval theme, strict social castes, mage paranoia and
Church domination creates the perfect atmosphere of oppression, fear,
and secrecy. I have personally found the dark fantasy theme to be very
compelling, and have played on the old reincarnations of the codebase
Plots here are solely player-generated - the people of power, who
make the big decisions, are players; the grassroots are players, and
the mages and thieves who lurk in the shadows are players. This allows
for an extremely flexible play style and RP opportunities. There is
often more than meets the eye in most RP scenarios, and discovering
hidden plots, identities, and secrets of other players (and
formulating your own!) never gets old.
I have had the opportunity to try several character concepts out so
far, and in each case the theme and RP policies truly allow each
character to take on a life of its own - so much so that I make to-do
lists for some characters to keep track of them!
The staff are generally friendly and accommodating, accepting of
player feedback and doing their best, I believe, to provide an
excellent RP environment for all. The number of players online at a
time is low enough that an active player would be able to meet and
know most other characters, yet high enough that there is RP available
for almost anyone at most times.
