The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Opal]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
Elendor is one of the first Tolkien MUSHes built. It was first
started in October of 1991 with only a few of the wizards still
playing on Elendor. Over the years it's changed alot but it's still
the same. It has always been a game about roleplaying and at the same
time enjoyable for the player of any age.
I have already been playing on Elendor for three months now and have
been in many cultures. I'd have to say all of the admins in every
culture are excellent and friendly to newbies. Almost everyone on
Elendor is a wonderful roleplayer too. Some cultures might be small
but they still roleplay as much and as good as any other culture.
I have been playing a Dwarf character in Erebor for a month now and
it's been great. For a small culture it's really active and
interacts much with other cultures like the Dale Lands. It can be hard
playing a female Dwarf character sometimes but it can also be rather
fun and different. Of course if you don't really like to fight or be
in a large kingdom you can always be a simple Hobbit in the Shire.
There are always the Beornings, Mordor or the Dwarf homes if you want
to be a mighty warrior.
Overall, the roleplay on Elendor is rated G when not in combat.
Mordor, Isengard and Moria might be always be PG but it makes the game
more exciting when there's combat. Even if you're playing a seven
year old character the roleplay is still good. And if you're eleven
years old in real life you can still play as an Orc or Hobbit.
Everyone on Elendor is very newbie friendly. Nobody on Elendor ever
runs out of Mordor to go player killing. The chat channels are always
monitered by admins and are always kept 'clean'.
So if you're up to that, you can go ahead and check Elendor out!
There are always lots of players online to roleplay with. Before you
get cultured, an admin of that culture will talk with you first to ask
you a few questions and then you will get cultured. Everyone in that
culture will give you a warm welcome when you join. There is only a
small chance that you will not get cultured on Elendor.
