The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Jamar]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
Like some many others that had a friend or relative get them started
in mudding, my brother got me hooked on Ravenmud. He came from
another game around the time Raven first started. I have seen many
players come and go over the years including myself. One thing keeps
us coming back; the feeling of family and friendships that no matter
how heated things become between our characters. We come together and
have each others backs when it matters.
The last few years have been tough on the mud between our founder
retiring, changing servers and the rollover of long time staff
members who gave Raven a sense of continuity. I, personally, have
been gone for two years and was happy to see that Raven is still as
strong as ever with enough unique areas, auto quests, eq and
adventuring that even after 12 years I still find new
things I never noticed before. If you like to be a loner and only
occasionally group, then Raven is perfect for you. A player can get
max levels by exploring the world and earning the respect of their
peers to be asked to join large eq runs and better themselves without
having to 'know' somebody to level.
If you prefer to make friends who will be your buds for years even
after you have stopped mudding, then Raven is for you. You can sit
around all day just chatting and no one will pester you to stay in
character or do something. There are many world channels to talk on
when you need to ask a question or are just bored and want to pester
the imms. If you want to learn to build Raven has their builders port
Raven has everything that you would expect from a long time mud.
Player killing, clans, 11 classes, remort races, all the trimmings.
Even with everything the code has to offer, Raven has one thing that
keeps us coming back, freedom. Freedom to be anything you want,
whenever you want, however you want.
