If you've read the discussion board on my promotion of this place, than kudos to you. It tells you most of what I'll tell you this day. But if you haven't, feel free to read it along with this Review.
Edge of Midnight, in my opinion, is one of the greatest games I've ever played. The best thing I can say is giving this place a try, but why? I'll be sure to tell you all about why.
First off, the storyline of Edge of Midnight begins with a being created of Chaos. His name is Pyros. As Chaos is a sort of element that incites suprise, whether it be good or bad, in whatever it may be. Chaos and madness are what made this being, so surely you would believe he's not very sane. In fact, he was so insane that he created a realm made entirely out of this Chaos. He molded beings for his amusement, created societies, and toyed with them. He made the realm merely to turn it upside-down with his constant meddling. Pyros is neither a benevolent or heinous immortal. He is merely one who seeks to fill the void known as his boredom with the creations of mortals.
The game itself is a DoT code that has and still is being heavily modified. With a excellent team of coders and builders, the game itself molds like chaos and blooms into more than just a game, but a society. The game itself is known as roleplaying mud, though if you're into hacking and slashing apart the most difficult of mobs, this is difinitely a place to test your skills. With many different races to try, one places themself in a sea of endless possibilities. Not only can you hunt, but you can play character of any race of any choosing, and you only have more say in where you go from there.
But with so many possibilities, a new person could easily become lost in the subtle waves of chaos. But, the game has had such a newbie-friendly playerbase for years that it rubs off on the next generation. Help can always be found no matter what time of day it is. There are currently 3 immortals and a team known as the nobles, who enforce the guidelines of the game, award roleplay, and further smooth out the game in many possible ways. The fun doesn't end there at all though.
As stated above, the game is user-friendly, hack-and-slash inclined, roleplay encouraged, but it still has more? Of course! The game is constantly worked on and new areas not only for hunting(A term used for slaying mobs to gain experience points and equipment) but to stage your own roleplay. One can go in any direction, not just one set path. You can be vile and twisted or as loving and caring as a saint for all that you want. The possibilities broaden as you go.
You may also wonder if the code is stable. Well, I've been in the game for two years straight. Addicted of course, but moving on, I've never seen the game crash deliberately. The code is very solid and is worked on by an excellent team.
Gameplay goes on and on.
And it gets better and better as players are always respected. Though jokes and mockery is merely a human trait, this is a paradise and respected as such. One can come here a newbie and be respected the same as a veteran. Respect is merely how you make it. The community always accepts new people and their new ideas so one's fresh mind never goes to waste in this game.
In short, you not only learn much from playing this game: Roleplay, hunting tactics, and many ways to play different types of character. You also have the ability to make a difference and change the ever-flowing stream of chaos. I suggest hack-and-slash players and expert roleplayers, beginners, anyone who wishes to join me in the Realm of Midnight.
