    Began on DarkBlade: As early as 1998-1999.

    DarkBlade is one of the most unique hybrids I've ever visited, and
    eventually staffed upon. It is a great place for everyone, as we
    recognize that we have younger people frequent our game. Our rules
    even allow for the saftey of the younger players, allowing them to
    be able to visit every area in our game.

    Many people come to DarkBlade for it's completely unique codebase on
    the MUD side, as everything has been coded from scratch. We use MUCK
    Forth (MUF or softcode) to code all of our features, so all of our
    features are very uniquely done! Our game itself is based off of (a
    now pretty heavily) modified TinyMUCK version 2.2fb5.30, allowing us
    to be able to accomodate for those who enjoy completely roleplay,
    without having to worry about experience points, skills, and the
    like. We have a variety of unique areas, constantly being added to,
    taken from, and revamped.

    Unfortunately, not many people realise that we have this MUCK side to
    the game, and are discouraged with our current revamp of the MUD.
    I'd just like to say, personally, that after having worked on the MU*
    since near the beginning, BOTH sides can offer a great experience,
    whether you're into gangland gun battles, or feudal warfare between
    the humans and gods. In fact, we are currently reworking the MUCK
    side to better provide for people.

    Above all, we have fun. Everyone knows each other, and although
    everyone has their quirks, everyone is helpful. Everyone loves the
    environment we create, and the friendships that we've made through
    the game. In fact, many of us have gotten so close, we don't realise
    there's any distance between us! The friendships I've made here,
    along with the politeness and giving spirit of the inhabitants of the
    game, are all invaluable. We always want to make more friends!
    If you're looking for close relationships in a place to have fun and
    be yourself, then this is the place to be.

    We also a highly social atmosphere. I'm sure there are people who
    come to DarkBlade just to chat! That's what we're here for.
    We like to talk. Get some of us going on the right subjects, and
    we'll be talking for hours!

    So if you like unique environments, a great place to socialize and
    make new friends, and enjoy both MUDs and MUCKs, than DarkBlade's got
    a lot to offer. It may be small, but it is a place that I really feel
    comfortable in visiting, and it'd be a place that if my brother came
    on, he wouldn't feel left out!
