I've been mudding a long time and Dark Risings is a robust and
comfortable game to play if you're used to ROM. Important areas
seem to have been retained in stock layout, though the names and
descs of some places have been changed (Kate's is Esme's etc).
The builders seem quite active as they have alot of unique and
well written areas. Character classes are more or less standard
with some twists thrown in for good measure and classes seem to
be pretty well balanced from what I've heard - I haven't had a
chance to get into any pk yet.
I haven't rubbed any imms the wrong way (yet!) so can't comment
on what they're like. Opinions are varied, but I haven't seen
any high handedness or rudness personally, though depending on
whom you ask, the imms either rock or stink.
I haven't seen a lot of quests and I think this is one weak
area that needs to be developed. There are reputedly some
in-built quests but I haven't been able to find them and no-one
will tell you what they are.
Other than that, the players seem pretty helpful and I've
had them help me level, get me eq and stuff so that's cool.
Dark Risings has a really good mudschool, that lives up to
their claim of being able to teach even a new mudder how to
play. Midgaard (Arinock they call it) is newbie friendly but
as you get further away from town it gets less so.
I'd recommend this game to anyone who wanted to check out
a new mud.
