Iíve been a player at Hidden Worlds since the early 90ís. In that time Iíve seen many changes, most of which I really like. Iím doing this player review to update the TMC review circa 1998. In the TMC review it states that many of the areas visited were stock Merc/Diku areas. While there are several areas that are stock (including mud school, arachnos, drow, sewers, and moria ) most of the areas are completely original. The higher in level one becomes, the more s/he can explore the vast land that Hidden Worlds contains.
Also in the TMC review it states that there was a lot of profanity on public channels. While there is an occasional outburst, our rules are very firm in stating the opposite. Usually a reminder is sent either on the public channel or in a tell to the player from an Immortal or even another player and that is the end of it. It has been a very long time since I noticed any further action being taken. We pride ourselves in having a very friendly playerbase that helps new players and as a result most players are eager to follow the rules in order to make Hidden Worlds an enjoyable game for all.
And finally in the TMC review it mentioned that we are old school and like it like that. Compared to some other muds this is definitely true. However in the past two years we have introduced some new player friendly options. Ansi Color has been implemented as well as auto-gold, auto-sac and about ten other options via the config command. While it is still best to connect via a client of some sort (even when fewer players are on, it is still a fast action game) the new options are definitely a welcomed feature.
In closing Iíd like to welcome everyone to try out Hidden Worlds. It is mudding like it used to be, but we have added a few options to make it easier on the modern player. While there are many areas for the lower level players, once you reach mid to upper levels the game becomes much more of a challenge. Acquiring the better equipment is as much of a challenge as attaining the highest levels of the game. Once the highest levels and the best equipment is acquired there are still lands that warp common sense and endanger your every move. Come by and say hi. The players at Hidden Worlds are more than willing to help you get started.
