Well, as the power was down on the Mud I normally play, I went to
check out one that had been recommended by a player of mine. I am
an Imm on one and will be an Owner of another one coming out shortly.
However, after adjusting to the new mud and getting a set of eq for
my Invoker, I was taken away from my group and transported to a room
with no exits where I was demanded to change my name by one of the
immortals there. It was not profane or anything, as I was not there
to cause problems, merely to have fun. So I am stuck in that room,
with the Renaming Bouncer, with no avenue of escape until they
approve of my new name.
My name was Christophe, as I have used on countless other Muds.
Nothing dramatic, as it is based on historical, 13th century
Spainish spellings, meaning Christ-bringer. However the staff,
after dismissing my explaination, could only say, 'It is obviously
cutting it too close to Christopher.' No comment on my explanation,
or reasoning for the decree. This is something I do not tolerate
on my Mud, and will not choose to play in myself.
So much for bringing a sense of the past, in a game BASED in the
past! Imagine that. Maybe that's just my history degree talking
though. Anyway, I would have to not recommend this Mud to potential
players. It was terribly difficult to get around in, unless you
know people to level you going in, and many of the features that I
am accustomed to, such as color, maps on the screen, character
customization and even basic command structures are lacking.
I would give it a reluctant half-star on a five star scale.
