Cthulhumud is easily the most entertaining mud I've ever played.
This is for a number of reasons:
One: Very changeable characters. Even a character that begins with bad
stats can become powerful with time and work; you train your stats as
you go up levels, so you can steer your character any way you choose.
The skills are myriad, and also very configurable.
Two: Many, many deeds and quests. Sometimes you have to work for 'em,
sometimes you have to search for 'em...they're not always gonna jump
out and bite you on the nose, but they're there. :)
Three: Beautiful descriptions of places and mobs. Some places are
more detailed than others, but it's always fun to explore.
Four: Replayability. I've logged so many hours it's not even funny.
A few caveats:
This is a thinking mud. If you want a hack and slash, you can
certainly find a lot to hack and slash here, but you'll get more out
of it if you think, and explore, and enjoy. RP is nice to see, but
it's not enforced.
Help is often offered to newbies, but don't expect it. *grin* Enjoy
it and thank the helpers when they help you, but it's not always
going to come.
Take notes: you'll find they come in handy later. The help files are
under renovation, so use the website for a good help-guide...
All in all, have fun, show common courtesy, and don't take things too
seriously. If you can do these things, you'll have loads of fun on
Cthulhumud. I have, for quite a few years...I've made loads of online
friends that I keep in touch with even when we're not mudding.
Hope to see you there...
