It looks like a good SWR modification, but it's hard to say when you can't advance or save your character without an immortal approving your name and there hasn't been anyone around the three times I've remade my character and checked.

I just noticed an automated email from 2 days ago that gave me 24 hr warning of purging my character. I understand not keeping around characters that were barely used, but only 24 hour warning is a bit ridiculous. It's not a good sign or encouraging that you want new players to return. Many games will send a reminder, or update of events, to encourage us to play. I don't know if I'd go through the trouble of making another character here. I found the char creation process to be unclear on the limits/guild choices of the type of race I chose the first time around, which was expressed to a GM.

I considered leaving a more in-depth review after my time spent here, though I find it regretful to admit that it would be very similar to that of the one most recent(Posted December 12, 2018) and almost redundant. So I will add what little I can while acknowledging such when necessary.

  There certainly are people within the playerbase who care deeply about the shared experience offered towards players. Their patience knows no bounds, and they have my utmost respect for carrying on despite those who make it difficult. That being said, their excuses are easy to make with an admittedly small playerbase that has been around for many years, some of them even handed a spot as an Immortal - of which there is a baffling amount with how much work is needed to be done that simply isn't. Immortal responsibilities, as stated in the previous review, are a tangled mess and held back by those absent - my limited experience, and on a completely different MUD mind you, as an Admin(glorified Customer Service in my case) makes this easier to understand and accept, although precautions should have been taken to prevent these problems from growing to the state they're presently in.

  With the aforementioned playercount is the inevitable relaxation of rules or, more accurately, a reluctance to hold people accountable. Again, the other review had mentioned how this more-or-less results in badmouthing other players(not characters) openly across public channels, both former and current with little regard for respect or privacy. I had witnessed this twice, and it did involve the participation of staff. Were this a more private environment it would be expected, but in the presence of new players and with a desperate need for such, it reflects poorly on the community and forms a terrible first impression, not to mention souring the mood for those wanting to abstain from such drama.

  Erotic Roleplay is discussed quite often and, as others have hinted at, is seemingly an obsession of the playerbase. Before accusations are leveled my way, I have no shame in partaking and, as a writer, have done my fair share of oddities for sheer amusement. I don't see it as a problem in and of itself. I see it as a problem when it is a barrier for roleplay, or what entices those to bring new players into the clique. I've witnessed it and also took part myself - offer yourself as a carrot on a stick and you will be brought in and, depending on how open you are, elevated to a more desirable status. Vella was a nobody until I set her to be sexually available, in which I found her pulled into a longstanding storyline that had been and possibly still is on hold and on a first name basis with characters that had otherwise completely ignored her regardless of past roleplay. My perspective had shifted drastically, and not in a good way - it cheapened my views of the MUD and, unfortunately, I had less respect for those who were, In-Character, prominent figures of the community. A possibly uncouth accusation, though the coincidence allows for interpretation.

  This MUD, the stories it holds, the constant additions to its codebase; they're let down by apathy. I wanted to put my heart into my character and forge her destiny, but my attempts failed. I became disappointed. When I did get involved in something important? I didn't feel I'd earned it.

So I quit.

extremely elitist mud. with limited equipment and player killing allowed, other players have strong motivation to not allow newer players to learn content. keywords are ridiculously obscure and information is not shared except with the closest of friends. if knowledge somehow does leak out to the common players, the immortals are likely to change entire zones and keywords stating 'too many people knew it'. death is also extremely harsh further discouraging exploration. i have lost 5+ hours of xp and weeks worth of equipment for daring to explore a new zone. stay away.


Star Conquest -- Mud Review posted by Omelet

Star Conquest is primarily a roleplaying game, but it happens to have amazing mechanics to back it all up. The story is an amazing one that spans many years. Much of the background details are available online (including the help files), and a lot more con be gained by roleplaying to learn about more of the theme than you ever dreamed existed. Roleplay is well-rewarded in the game, even more than mechanical prowess. It's no hack and slash, but it keeps those elements for variety. Staff is friendly (as long as you're friendly to them) and helpful. There's a mentor system for new players and all players are very willing to help someone new. There's almost always something happening in the game, one major plot or another, as well as several minor ones. Whether roleplaying to affect the broader arc of the game is your style, or roleplaying interpersonal situations is your style, you'll be happy there. The mechanics are also top notch, allowing for more grindy type players. There are three factions (alliances) immediately available to new players, one that's only open to those who have shown their knowledge of the theme through their roleplay, and one that occasionally accepts temporary player membership. Each has its own distinct style (or be a trendsetter).

Common complaints I've heard often have to do with staff reacting to people who think they can act like children and be accommodated. If you want your hand held to the point someone creates your character for you, Star Conquest is not for you. If you like to be creative within the theme, you'll likely thrive.

Do not play here. Don't even try it the first time.

Seriously, don't.

Fantastic game, code-wise. Heavily addictive, satisfying systems, tons to do and lots to play with. You will, however, be treated like a piece of garbage by every single member of their Staff in ways that even "survivors" of some of the worst games in history will be surprised by. No one I have ever met who plays Star Conquest is happy to be there. They're there because they got hooked, put too much time into their character to walk away, and only rarely have to deal with the Staff. I was on the same page. Sure, they spy on every single thing you say to every single person no matter the medium of communication and shove your nose in the idea that that's normal behavior, but you don't have to interact with them much. The mental gymnastics you have to do to stick around are insane.

No big incident took place in my case that caused me to stop logging in, I just did. I was actually fiddling around on a completely unrelated game when a Staff member sent me a tell and I got a wave of stress-nausea. That was my hint it was time to cut ties and wish the remaining members of the Star Conquest Stockholm Syndrome-havers the best.

If you play there now, please leave. You might be surprised how much happier you are for having done so. If you've never touched it, seriously, don't.

I'm not on my first character and have never been so invested in a character that I didn't feel I could walk away. That said, I'm also not a chronic reroll. I've gotten to know the staff and don't see them the way this player does. They're people. And if you put in the effort to roleplay and generally act in a mature way, your experience will be a good one. Star Conquest is a game of roleplay that happens to have amazing mechanics. Staff (while at times busy) are generally attentive and do their best to make the world one we all want to play in. Does this mean that things will always go a character (or player's) way? No, and it shouldn't. because for one, that makes for terrible roleplay. Yes, they 'snoop,' but I've never seen this as a bad thing. Their 'snooping' is not unrealistic to the theme and is used to promote roleplay. If most of the playerbase felt this way, there would be no playerbase. Because even if you don't delete your character, you can disappear for years at a time (people do, for various reasons).

I should post an actual review, come to think of it.

This is one of the best places I've ever been a part of. Great staff, very helpful, and very lenient with what they allow and what they don't. The people who join are great rpers as well, like legit writers who I am honored to play off of and interact with. People are genuinely interested in collaborating and not in hoarding away in their little fiefdoms or cliques.

However, I'm currently having some trouble logging in, the mush and the wiki both aren't working. The Wikidot is working, but I don't think anybody's used that in years. Guys, what happened, where is everyone?

I decided to see if the game would load a few weeks ago, and take a nostalgic look around the game world. To my surprise there was a lot of action happening, with a lot of old players having returned, most bringing a new player with them. So, I stuck it out and level'd a character, after a little bit in the academy, I was picking everything right back up. Now, I'm here writing a review so some of you old players or new looking for an rp mud with awesome all original world items and a simple class race and combat system including weapon and armor restring and enchantments, might come join us for some fun.
