Aldebaran was my first and is still my favorite MUD. I have played
on a variety of others but Alde has an essence that many others lack.
The lands of Aldebaran are like a living story-book, full of
evocative descriptions and adventure. The people are old friends
now, which is the biggest difference I found from other MUDs. Alde's
design encourages players to socialize and form a community; two of
our players actually married IRL after meeting on Alde.
I have seen extremely well-written MUDs whose design actually
discourages player interaction; they are fun but lonely. I have seen
MUDs with elaborate room descriptions but no quests or dynmamic
content; they are nice to look at but ultimately dull. Alde's
community and quests give it a vibrant, living quality that I miss
on other MUDs. I have played on it for two years as a player and
then as a wizard, and there are still places and secrets I have
yet to discover.
I invite you to begin discovering Aldebaran for yourself!
