Character Generation was relatively painless, decently explained, the
helpfiles seem mostly complete.
While there is a newbie guide book object to pick up, the game never
tells you this. You need to figure it out on your own, and it
essentially has no details other than command breakdowns. Now a list
of commands for certain aspects of a game is useful, but some
descriptions inside would be handy.
However, after nearly 2 decades of gaming. This game has one of the
worst newbie area designs I have ever seen in a completed game.
Apparently the designers forgot the point of the area is to show
someone new to their game how it works in general.
Unless you choose a specific race and class, the newbie area punishes
you by being unusable to your race. Apparently, according to a player
who at least tried to help, if you pick anything but a good alignment,
the game is designed to be unplayable.
I never witnessed a peep about RP. As for population, decently
populated, however, no real activity from anyone.
Never witnessed any staff. The only player assistance I received was
people stating delete my char and go to a new game as Toril was dying,
or someone else stating that I shouldn't be allowed to use a newbie
starter area zone because I wanted to play an evil character.
All in all rather disappointing considering the other reviews posted
does not match what I found.

We have recently relaxed many of the difficulties for evilrace
characters with out new 'Unity' system. We now allow all players to
group with each other regardless of race. We also relaxed the penalty
for underdark race's 'ultravision' so that you are not quite so
blinded by daylight.
We are terribly sorry that you had a bad experience. I can only
assume that you were online during a particularly low activity time.
There is usually a staff member available, our game is constantly
expanding with new content and developement, and our playerbase is
There are always jaded players who complain that the MUD used to be
greater in the 'golden days' but please take such comments with a
grain of salt! This MUD is still fully active and always moving
