I've been enjoying the varied world of Medievia for the past eight years or so and have had the opportunity to experience the development process that has made this game, in my opinion, the pinnacle of the MUD world. When I started playing Medieva it was a game that, in it's old form, would rival any of the MUDs today, from massive battles between warring kingdoms to exhilarating player-versus-player battles, I believed Medievia to have it all. Only recently have I been shown how wrong I was. While Medievia contained all of the elements required to make a fantastic MUD for many years only recently has the wonderful programming staff of Medievia shown me the true potential of their game, of our game.
After 8 years of playing I am now beginning to envy new players, for while I had many exciting things and many wonderful adventures from the time I started until now, it is nothing compared to the things that are being implemented every day. Medievia, to me, represents something for everyone. From the part time Player Killer to the diligent clan leader, the eager socialite to the happy loner, there is truly something for everyone, all paths being equal in their enjoyability and success.
Medievia today scarcely resembles the game I grew to love years ago, on the surface similarities are there, but inside it has changed a lot, the feeling has changed a lot. However, even with all of the changes I continue to enjoy the game immensely, because never before have I played a game that allowed the players to take an active role in helping direct the future of the game. Never before have I seen a staff so willing to listen to suggestion. Never have I witnessed a game I love change and know that I have nothing to worry about, because these are changes that I want, that I have been involved in and know about.
Medievia now advances into a new age, as it were, an age of massive AI control and full scale naval warfare. The land of Medievia is under attack from afar and it is up to the players to keep it safe. Normally such a ridiculous line would never be written by me, however the story and implementation of the new events has made me want to protect this fictional world, has made we want to be part of the story.
