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

DarkBlade is one of the most unique hybrids I've ever visited, and
eventually staffed upon. It is a great place for everyone, as we
recognize that we have younger people frequent our game. Our rules
even allow for the saftey of the younger players, allowing them to
be able to visit every area in our game.

Many people come to DarkBlade for it's completely unique codebase on
the MUD side, as everything has been coded from scratch. We use MUCK
Forth (MUF or softcode) to code all of our features, so all of our
features are very uniquely done! Our game itself is based off of (a
now pretty heavily) modified TinyMUCK version 2.2fb5.30, allowing us
to be able to accomodate for those who enjoy completely roleplay,
without having to worry about experience points, skills, and the
like. We have a variety of unique areas, constantly being added to,
taken from, and revamped.

Unfortunately, not many people realise that we have this MUCK side to
the game, and are discouraged with our current revamp of the MUD.
I'd just like to say, personally, that after having worked on the MU*
since near the beginning, BOTH sides can offer a great experience,
whether you're into gangland gun battles, or feudal warfare between
the humans and gods. In fact, we are currently reworking the MUCK
side to better provide for people.

Above all, we have fun. Everyone knows each other, and although
everyone has their quirks, everyone is helpful. Everyone loves the
environment we create, and the friendships that we've made through
the game. In fact, many of us have gotten so close, we don't realise
there's any distance between us! The friendships I've made here,
along with the politeness and giving spirit of the inhabitants of the
game, are all invaluable. We always want to make more friends!
If you're looking for close relationships in a place to have fun and
be yourself, then this is the place to be.

We also a highly social atmosphere. I'm sure there are people who
come to DarkBlade just to chat! That's what we're here for.
We like to talk. Get some of us going on the right subjects, and
we'll be talking for hours!

So if you like unique environments, a great place to socialize and
make new friends, and enjoy both MUDs and MUCKs, than DarkBlade's got
a lot to offer. It may be small, but it is a place that I really feel
comfortable in visiting, and it'd be a place that if my brother came
on, he wouldn't feel left out!
