TMC Listing: The Inquisition: Legacy
The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Rothgar]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
When I came to TI: Legacy, I was mostly a child born of combat MUD's
and other shenanigans, so the idea of an RPI was... At best, confusing
and silly to me. But, I had it on good faith from the player who
recommended me that I would enjoy it. So... I stuck around.
At first glance, TI: Legacy does admittedly seem a bit silly. The
mechanics are difficult, at best, for new players, and the town layout
is utterly insane. But I stuck with it, just to prove to myself that I
could learn an entirely new MUD system and get away with it scot-free.
And so began my eight-month journey. Over the course of such, I
eventually learned the mechanics - the combat system, the experience
system, the skill system... And when I looked back at what I
considered silly mechanics, I realized that they all fit beautifully
with what the MUD was attempting to do. An RPI *needs* what they have
- a combat system that is easy and intuitive, so that one need not be
a pro to master it. An experience system that rewards you for RP'ing
with characters that you rarely RP with. A series of skills that
depends less on botting, and more on actually putting them to good
And now, I can't even look back at my combat MUD's. TI: Legacy has
become a second home to my MUD'ing spirit - something that I've not
come across in quite some time. The staff is helpful and kind, the
players are equally so - there are of course some bad apples, but what
MUD doesn't have those?
If you're a fan of RPI's, and you can stomach the theme of the MUD,
then I would highly recommend this one. The mechanics and the theme
mesh beautifully to create an environment that is seldom seen in such
And I will certainly see you on the grid.
