TMC Listing: The Inquisition: Legacy
The following review is the opinion of the review's author [mattc]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
The Inquisition: Legacy represents a rebirth of the old spirit of RP
that once infused other games of the TI lineage. Though it uses an
older codebase, all of the essential features of TI remain, and day by
day it seems more code changes accumulate. The strength of TI:L is in
its playerbase, though.
The game is gifted with a skilled bunch of players, and new plots
spread faster than wildfire. The game is filled with all of the
intrigue and danger one could hope for in an RPIMUD – and that’s
what TI:L is, in my mind, though it does not seem to associate itself
with that community. If you like George R. R. Martin’s books, or
anything written by Joe Abercrombie, chances are you will find the
original mythos of TI:L to be compelling. Backbiting nobles, wicked
clergymen, poor tramps-turned-assassins, heretical cults, secret mages
– these are just some of the characters to be found on the current
TI:L is the only RPI to be found that, with sophisticated code
systems to support its RP, truly embodies the harsh, gritty realism
that dominates modern fantasy.
