I began my first mudding experience as a diversion
from the tedious work I had at hand to get my house
ready to sell and to get ready to move. The makers of
Medievia have made a fascinating online world that
remains out of reach for the new player, however.
The game claims to be friendly to new players, but
most of the game remains closed off to a new player,
even after a month of intense gameplay. One must
attain 'hero' status to even begin to enjoy this game.
My time in Medievia was not only a frustrating
'gaming' experience, but perhaps one of the most
frustrating experiences of my adult life. It finally
occurred to me that the game did achieve something
It allowed me, a white American male, to experience
discrimination for the first time as a low-level
character in a world of petty 'gods'.
