Shattered World is, first and foremost, a shockingly unique MUD.
Unlike any other I've ever played, this MUD is astonishingly original,
using 100% original material. It is also brilliantly coded, hosting
an absolutely massive game world that operates in not two, but three
dimensions. Offering flight and the possibility to access a gigantic
amount of rooms, well over one hundred thousand and quite possibly
over one million unique locations. It also has dozens of long,
challenging, and involved quests that offer many rewards and hours of
Shattered is also unique because it doesn't run on a traditional,
experience based level system. Instead, you make a truly unique and
exceptional character based on many options at the start, and by
practicing only the skills that you need -- no two characters are
ever the same on Shattered World. Indeed, everyone is truly unique.
The economy is also tremendously unique -- it operates on something
called the zero-sum theory, which basically states that the amount of
debt in the game and the amount of money is always equal -- while the
driver enters into debt, no character is allowed to become overly,
fantastically, filthy rich without a massive amount of effort. Simply
farming the same mobs over and over will not do. As well, most shops
and many towns are player owned, operated, and created -- the imms on
this MUD are creators, and enforce a limited set of rules -- the rest
of the order on this game is actually managed by powerful players.
This system works remarkably well. A word of warning, however -- this
MUD is highly addictive, and laced with challenging mental puzzles.
However, the rewards for perserverence are great and I would
recommend this MUD a hundred times over.
