I have been playing on Core for 5 years now and I still have a lot of
fun. First, this is a science-fiction MUD - the players are miners
hired by The Company to work on an asteroid orbiting in the middle
of nowhere. So, mining is a way for players to make money, but they
can also get a job in one of the 15 player-owned shops. Right, all
facets of the economy can be modified by the players. The ore mined
is used to forge weapons, which are used to kill various NPCs. Then
their bodies can be 'processed' in a clinic and the blood will be
used by players to regenerate Hit Points or by the pubs to grow yeast
for making alcohol (yuk). If you like a realistic world where credits
don't fall from the sky, this place is for you.
The world itself is huge. The main City Dome has thousands of
different rooms and there are many domes located on the asteroid
surface (but don't forget to bring an environment suit if you go
outside!) Example areas are: A casino, park, PK arena, three shopping
districts, stock trading offices, a prison, gym, radio KORE,
restaurants and a library.
If you like questing, there are different quests you must finish in
order to get to the next level. Many mini-quests can be found
The playerbase is smaller now that what it was a few years ago,
mainly due to the fact that a new version of the MUD was supposed
to come out but never did. But the team of coders is still working,
always listening to the player requests and improving/adding new
So if you are looking for a good, mature and realistic science-fiction
MUD, Core is for you. The admins are friendly, the help documentation
is complete and well-written. Core also supports Portal, with sounds
