The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Iris] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.

My second year at Shadow Siege is fast approaching, and the MUD
itself has come as far along with its updates as I have with my
Mudding skills.

Shadow Siege is great for those new to mudding, as I had been when I
started. There are IC and OOC glossaries available on the site to
quickly bring players up to speed on the setting and current situation
or if something is forgotten along the way, and there are also
well-written descriptions in the creation area to teach the basic
commands.

Upon coming out of the character generation, you're very likely to
be swept into a plot rather quickly, or Staff are frequently planning
RP events which will involve and are designed to bring all willing
players together. All players are newbie-friendly, and willing to
offer some company in RP, or help with anything about the game. Staff
and Player Aids are also very patient, helpful, and seek to draw you
into any ongoing plots, or to bring you into knew ones. New code is
going in nearly every day, and players' suggestions are always
welcomed and appreciated to add even more unique features to the game.
Being both leveless and classless, you also need not worry about being
hacked and slashed by more experienced players. Though there is
violence involved in plots and vagabond types, efights are not a main
focus. We are roleplay enforced and encourage creative writing while
you play anything from a bard to a merchant, refugee, etc (Though
optional, many players have also written some wonderful background
stories!).

Bottom line, though, as I could write even more if you're not yet
convinced...While getting a great playing experience playing SS,
you'll also be making plenty of new friends. :) Most of us also speak
off the MUD, and having that sort of familial friendship atmosphere on
the MUD only heightens the positive experience further.
