The following review is the opinion of the review's author [clavicus]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
Batmud is a really involving mud. Although it can be daunting for a
first timer, the sheer scope of the mud quickly becomes apparent.
Firstly, the Batworld is all on a huge map known as the outerworld-
this gives you a true feeling of travel when you are going to one
There are many unique and fun areas- the dedicated wizzes of batMUD
have coded some 13000+ rooms, and new areas are constantly being
worked on. The character creation system is very deep- you may
customize your character as much as you like. There are 33 player
races (with an extra 10 special races), 5 backgrounds (from which
30+ guilds come from, which you can join and advance in as you see
fit), hundreds of skills and spells that all add together to make
batmud an immersive mudding experience.
There are all sorts of things to do on batmud. For some, a good time
is had when they lead a few friends and club monsters to death.
Others like to form organized parties to take down a mighty lord of
evil. Some players on batmud like to become a merchant, and go
mining, or crafting fine weapons and armours (among other things).
There are also people who choose to strike out on their own, being
self-sufficient and efficient. Oftentimes they are more than they
seem. Basically, on Bat, you can do what you want. You'll have your
hands full just deciding on a guild (and if you want to change, you
can always reincarnate).
Batmud is an immersive gaming experience. With colour terminals,
fully coloured and detailed maps and a huge playerbase, you can be
sure you won't feel alone or unchallenged. So log on now, and be
addicted. It's inevitable.
