I started in the MUD world playing a basic MUD in spanish. There I met a wizard whom I finally started to chat and so. He talked to me about GEAS, and warned me it was nothing like I was played before.
It was truly nothing I was used to. Just after creating my char, which only took me around 2 minutes, I appeared at an inn, where I met a lizardman and an elven lady chatting. After some roleplaying and basic guidelines by them, I was invited to visit Ironhold, a former dwarven city that had been invaded by gnolls and other goblinoids.
On our way we met a Taniel cleric, god of light and order, who joined us in our mission. I barely knew basic commands for fighting, and the ones I was told were meant to keep me alive, but what I saw was amazing:
Used to combats where you simply type attack and watch succesive fighting rounds, the lizardman started to use a lot of shaolin moves, jumpkicks, backhand chops, tackles, while the elven lady wielded a katana with both hands and took the tanking, performing moves, like impales and spins. The cleric stayed at backrow, safe from melee attacks, and fried some goblinoids with holy smites, while also caring for the health of our team. I must admit sometimes I forgot to attack too, and simply watched the fight trying not to lose myself :P
It has been five years since then. Now Jezz is the Dreadmaster of the Crowned Skull, god of Death and Destruction, and roams the lands looking for enemies of HIS god, ready to spread suffering. In those five years I have barely been able to master some skills, which alway keeps me wanting to improve my char. I also learned to profit from the never seen before combat system Geas offers. He often has to deal with druids, crusaders, thieves, dark templars, rangers, shaolins, skaldens, alchemists...
Roleplay is one of the major aspects in Geas too. I and the 90% of people here have adopted a charismatic way of playing our chars, which makes every time i log in a new opportunity of enjoying a MUD session.
This is something I'm sure not everyone can say about their own MUD...
