Ok, So... first I'm not here to flame lotn or give the place some bad review just because I don't like the staff members. But I glanced through the previous reviews and I don't really find them to be very accurate, at least not anymore. There was a time when lotn was home to a selection of very good mudders ones who did call the place home. Now it's simply ruins of a once good mud. Where to start I guess.
Let's start with the staff issues. Abuse of power is one thing that i've never quite agreed with on muds. I've seen it on more than one occassion. Imms giving directions to players trying to kill other players. Imms stepping in to save a player's life when the attacker has a good reason for attacking. I've even seen imms kill a player for little reason. I could go into detail but there's no need to go there it is something that needs worked on however.
The noble system is an interesting concept to the mud. However... most of the kings and queens have been imms or know the imms directly. So there's an issue there that needs to be resolved. The mud i'd say buildingwise has alot of original rooms.
Quite a few pieces of stock still laying around too, but its not really a bad thing so to speak. Some people find comfort in stock at first so it fits well enough.
The races are original, the classes are fairly stock. Nothing really innovative that i've noticed. Single backstab assassins, they make poison, warriors swing swords, though they do have stances but so do other places. Really i haven't seen anything in the classes that I haven't seen anywhere else.. So creativity is needed there.
Guilds... Well not many people really fly their colors anymore. Only three active.
That's pretty much my review I guess of the place,
I've touched most of the areas of importance. I've played at lotn since version one. The place has had it's ups and downs. Most of the original players left along time ago. There are a few stragglers left. My time with the place is over however. It's just not what it used to be.
To all the newcomers, give it a shot if ya want. Just note it's not perfect. And as a former imm, and player, what was said in the review is true and not meant to run people off from the mud. Moreso to keep those who are looking for a new home a more up to date listing of issues and problems the mud is facing rather than happy go lucky reviews that are perhaps outdated, considering a number of the people who wrote the reviews quit on bad terms. Anyway, if you've questions about the mud you're welcome to contact me.
