The name 'Core 2651' is a bit of a misnomer, as the current IC year
is 2656. Yes, I said IC. Core does have a heavy futuristic theme that
is a joy to roleplay within, quite frankly. Oh, and they didn't just
throw together some Star Trek, Star Wars, and/or other 'popular'
futuristic races. They made their own.
So, what is Core? Core, at its heart, is a MUD based on the goings-on
happening on 'a remote planet far from Earth' that is rich in
minerals. 'The Company' contracts the player to mine on this planet,
and that is where a great deal of other MUDs fall flat: you already
have something to do on Core from the moment you log on! You've got a
job with The Company.
Don't let that fool you, though. There are player-run shops, and you
can sign on with any one of them to bust your butt for a fortune.
Pubs, where the miners hang out and get wasted on caffeine and alcohol
(which restores health and stamina... no magic here!), are yours for
the running. Or perhaps the medical stores, where the transfusion of
blood (which restores health also) is commonplace. Better still, why
not ply your trade as a weapons or arms dealer, or a mining tech shop?
Or you could work at a power supply shop and supply much needed gerks
(energy) to the miners. Choices, choices...
But you must be asking yourself about killing things. It IS a MUD
after all, and Core doesn't disappoint here either. Combat code is
constantly discussed via forums and analyzed by the crack staff, and
so you'll find yourself armed to the teeth and fighting in the sewer,
or instanced areas, where you're the only person or group inside that
particular area! No kill stealing! Better yet, explore outside and you
may find some interesting things...
Give Core a look. Be it as a miner, a technician, a store front-line
grunt, or a mercenary, you can find it and work it like a pommel
horse! Check the forums for interaction offMUD, or stop by the Drunken
Heptosquid and page me for some service.
