So one day looking for something different I was searching around on ZMUD's mud database and found one called lost souls. It was an LP mud, which was a codebase I had little prior playtime on (little did I know at the time that LP muds are usually super customized, at least the best ones) and gave it a shot. Turned out to be my favorite mud ever. Really great detail put into all of the guilds. But be warned the mud plays a little different from most. Seems like the developers are making it more friendly to new players though, as they recently took out the super annoying quests system.
Mud has a very nice player base too, with most players being quite experienced with the mud. I think maybe the way the mud USED to be scared off people, but it's a load more newbie friendly now.
The guilds are pretty balanced and so are the areas. The only thing I dislike about the mud is that there is little RP, but if some of you reading this review would be interested to start RPing (i'd settle for something as simple as a guild war) just get in touch with me (I play a character by the same name that entered this submission ATM).
It's a bit heavy on the hack and slash (ok, so it's reliant on it :P) but so are a lot of other muds I've played that had some decent RP. I can also think of some more basic classes that are missing (I'd like to see an assassin or something similar), but all of the muds classes are extremely unlike most MUDs, with their own depth filled play styles and lots of advantages and drawbacks. IE. the reapers are weak against holy items and areas, and also rely on sacrifices to their master to be able to use their powers. The Kazarak are reliant on gaining energy from their crystal pillar as they don't heal at all when not next to it, unless they consume magical items. But in exchange they get all sorts of really awesome charge up abilities and some symptoms of the undead. It's fun to run around without a head.
Ah yes, that reminds me of the MUD's best feature IMO. The mud has an awesome limb system. Meaning you can cut off arms, hands, legs, and even heads. And some races have additional limbs. But swing on by and check it out. I'm sure the players would not mind helping you get started if you ask. I know I will.
