Denver is the most populous Shadowrun-themed MUX available today. Though it has gone through many changes over the years, it remains a great game and one worthy of any SR fan's attention.
For the unfamiliar, Shadowrun is a futuristic Earth-based setting with strong elements of both cyberpunk and fantasy. The world is separated by lines of wealth and poverty, and the old governments have fallen before the dominance of megacorporations. Cybernetic technology is now a reality. At the same time, the resurgence of magic has restored various 'mythological' elements to the world. Elves, dwarves, orks and trolls walk the gritty streets alongside mankind. Spiritual shamans and calculating mages weave their spells in the forests of the reclaimed wild and the filthy alleyways of the great metroplexes.
Shadowrun's theme is definitely adult and gritty, as well as violent. Players take on the role of mercenaries hired to secretly carry out the dirty work of the megacorporations. When not doing that, players interact with each other on the city grid of Denver, drinking in bars and working deals with what little nuyen (the in-theme currency) they have earned.
Prospective players should be willing to roleplay, as that's what Denver is all about. There are no mobs to kill or 'phat lewtz' to pick up off the floor. Everything is RP'd, right up to the actual shadowruns that earn you cash and a reputation.
There are plenty of humans and elves. In my opinion, the game is currently in need of the less 'beautified' races: dwarves, orks, trolls. Other than that, the possibilities are really endless for what you can play here, so long as you stay within theme. Want to play a less-than-intelligent troll who lives in a filthy apartment and makes his nuyen bashing heads? How about a physical adept, whose magical abilities are channeled into the improvement of his body? These and more are equally possible.
Hop on to Denver and have a look around. I've enjoyed the game immensely and would be happy to see some additional new faces around. The game is quite active already, and having more people can only increase the RP possibilities!
