I have played on Firan for well over two years. While its coded
systems can only be described as awesome that is about the best
the game has to offer. I have had none, to very few, interesting
plot scenes. Plot and adventures are reserved for their feature
characters which leaves everyone else lacking in the fun department.
The majority of the players are considerate and nice which makes
acclimating to a game of this type easy. If you are used to games
where there is mostly a steady increase to your characters life,
don't consider playing on Firan. The class system makes IC life
very prejudiced and this seems to carry over OOCly as well, where
staff are related. While at times the staff are friendly and helpful,
there appears to be extreme favoritism as well. They will tell one
player that things in the game do not move quickly yet they are all
too quick to move 'favored' characters into position to the point
of ignoring their own rulings. The game sports a very large staff,
so large in fact that one is often juggled between them in the search
for answers. Their left hand doesn't know what their right hand is
doing. Half the characters on their roster are so horribly out of date
that they are not worth playing. And the chances of getting definite,
clear and concise help from staff in updating such a character is nil.
Their thinking is that they are doing a player a 'service' by letting
them write back history, which it would be if they did not constantly
deny write ups that fit theme. With their roster system, it is the
staff's job to keep characters updated, not the players. Their staff
is largely under the idea that their interpretation of a character is
the only one that is right and unwilling to discuss anything outside
of their thoughts.
Overall, I have mixed thoughts on the game at large. Loving one part
of it but finding a lot of room for improvement.
