I have been mudding since the early 90's and as many other mudders I got stuck on one mud and never changed. 2002 some friends of mine asked me to try Burning and I was a bit reluctant for a starters since I had heard it was heavily based on afk exping and I was used to play very actively on a PK mud.
However, after playing Burning for some months trying to get a grip of it I realized the mud had huge potential. It is not a mud for you guys that has to do PK for a living, only place PK is allowed is in the arena or in special events. I was kind of bored with PK after 10 years of PK so this didn't matter to me. Burning offers a fun environment for all types of players. The loner, the newbie, the lazy, the skilled and the active ones can all have fun on this mud.
This is a very social mud, people talk alot with each other and it is easy to make friends. If you need help there is always someone online who can answer since the mud has players from all over the world even though the majority are europeans. There are always at least 20 people online, normally around 50 and sometimes up to 100.
During the weeks you can choose to either solo, join groups and get xp or join groups in the well. The well is a very funny area that consists of 20 levels (harder mobs each level) and from here you get good cash, elemental fragments and some nice equipment. The main reason for being in the well is that elemental fragments will let you boost your char gaining a special race and extra stats. Here you can also find orbs of great power to make you.. kick ass. Weekends there is usually some experienced leader (me among others) that lead special equipment groups (PG - PowerGroups) which heads out and kill the most badass mobs with the best equipment in the game. These groups are tons of fun, you gain great equipment and most players are online to join these groups.
The immortals on this mud are very friendly and unless you are a total jerk they treat you with respect and are very open to suggestions and ideas. They also keep adding new and wonderful areas for people like me to explore and slaughter inhabitants in.
I highly recommend you to try this mud out if you haven't and feel
