Upon first glance, Medievia seemed just like any other hack and slash em, cast spells to slay evil and save the day blah blah blah sorta game. However, upon immersing myself in the deep text for a few hours, I started to realize there was something different about this. This was no ordinary mud, as a matter of fact, I wouldn't even use the term mud to describe Medievia, no it was something much more.
Not only does Medievia have an AMAZING automated, in game, new player helping tutorial, it is also full of Avatars (of which I am one, and being so greatly), who stand ready to help anyone new to the game. Medievia has an extensive system of help files, not that the game is hard to get accommodated to.
The beauty of Medievia, is that there is no end to it, no 'final boss', for all you hardcore console rpgers, Medievia, unlike most games never truly ends. The goal of Medievia is to become a hero, and upon doing so, an entire new world is opened up to you. Whether you chose the path of killing mobs deep in the catacombs, assaulting dragon lairs, participating in various quests, herobattles, trading goods from one city to another, or whether you are more into helping new players, or running one of the countless zones Medievia has to offer to enhance your own skills/stats further. Or if you prefer to choose a more fiendish style, you can go around pk'ing people, or even cpk'ing people(which if you don't know is like pk, except you can actually take your opponents equipment upon killing them).
Another beauty of the game is the equipment code itself, in the fact that there is no pre determined 'best equipment' in the game. Since most equipment in the game does in fact tweak (that is, the stats of a set piece of equipment does not remain constant), no two players are exactly alike, even if they are a different class.
So whether you would like to be a powerful mage, slaying countless foes with devastating spells, a valiant knight, fighting for the better of the entire population, a stealthy thief, or a helpful cleric, Medievia is at the very least, worth connecting to.
