I've been playing AA for over 10 years. I've played other muds but
few compare to it.
For the explorer sort, this mud packs quality into its areas like no
other mud. Pretty much everything can be touched, smelled, sniffed,
tasted, searched. The NPCs being made for the game keep getting
smarter. The classes are top-notch, it has the fewest bugs and typos
I've seen in any mud, and the players are extremely friendly and fun.

worked on by a number of people, the class is one of the hugest,
complex and most compelling classes I have played in a MUD. You can

money forging different items for people.
I definitely recommend trying it. Some guilds are more newbie
friendly than others (don't jump right in bed with the war-mongering
Scythe clan!), but bears, knights and snowfolk are extremely friendly
to newbies. For those that have tried the game, come back and see
what's on offer now!
