Deckeon is closely based on the Shadowrun 3 rules and does a great
job of recreating that world. As a new player you will find the world
challenging and without luxuries such as autocombat found in some
other muds. This is part of what attracts me, the mud offers simply
automated runs as well as more intricate puzzles you need to solve
yourself. Sometimes information only can be obtained through
interaction with other players and if you enjoy roleplay then this is
the mud for you. The information is provided through IC (in character)
meetings and conversations, the OOC channel bans IC information so you
really have to get to know the players by meeting them.
Although the playerbase is not big, they are friendly and quite
helpful in most cases. Of course when you play a thug and another
player plays a Lonestar officer then it is likely that other player
will come after you. I have been busted quite a few times already and
all but one of them was done through in-character means. Some calmly
bringing me in using their authority, others tricking me so I was
distracted and then busting me. Besides being a cop, thug or
bountyhunter you can also join docwagon, which means you can come to
the aid of players and/or NPC's. All this is optional of course,
there are plenty of ways to keep yourself occupied.
It will probably take a long time to build up your character, this is
not a matter of 'leveling' in a class but earning Karma with which
you can buy the skills, magic or stats that suit you and by
establishing contacts allowing you access to the illegal goods. I know
I'm, not a great writer and I can't put it in words the way I feel
about it.. all I can say is it is a great mud. Come check it out!
