I've experienced DS as both a player and a staff member. As a
player, I found the world to be quite involving, with a wide
diversity of areas. These areas were created in such a way that it
actually felt like a coherent realm, they moved fairly seamlessly
into each other and it was very easy to imagine yourself travelling
along from the city of Tyr along the wide farmlands and eventually
moving through some forests to the cliffs near Graye.
As in any mud, you will have strong roleplayers and those who simply
aren't, but for the most part at least an attempt is made. The
guilds have strong definitions to them, and players do their best to
enforce those ideologies. Overall, it's generally been a good well-
rounded experience for me.
As a player, I generally found the staff to be quite prompt and
reasonable with the requests presented to them, and overall of an
affable nature. Now that I have joined them, I can truly appreciate
the massive amount of work that has gone into this mud, and the
plans that are yet in store. We take all ideas and suggestions into
consideration, and try to make the player experience as enjoyable as
possible, sometimes going so far as to revamp areas at player
requests to make them more newbie friendly. Code improvements and
implementations are continuous now that we're in p-testing phase
after a total game revamp, although most skills and the like are
firmly in place.
Newbies may find it a bit challenging at first, but there are
usually players who are willing to take newbies under their wings
and show them the ropes, and efforts are always made to ease their
introduction into this somewhat roleplay-complex world. These
efforts range from enhancing help files to building more areas that
will be of use to new players.
I've found this place to be well rounded and thoroughly enjoyable,
and look forward to doing my part to make it even better in the days
