I haven't been mudding for very long, just a few months actually, but I couldn't have asked for a better place to learn and grow from. Honestly, the reason why I first came here was cause of the auto-map thingie in the corner, which is really helpful, makes navigating easier. I've wandered around a bit and this was the first one I saw that had that kind of feature. What made me stick around though were the other things.
I've never been a fan of hack and slash, though there is plenty of that here. I love the fact that you could chose to not ever have to pick up a weapon and still grow and develop your character.
The people here are really friendly, and the warm welcome and willingness to help was really nice. I learned as much as I could from the MUD school, which was really useful to someone who's never played before. And even then, they answered all the questions I had, no matter how basic or silly it seemed.
The players are kind, and patient with the mistakes I made while learning about the proper ways to rp. I've met a few colorful characters and their willingness to include a new player into their storylines really made me feel welcome. It really made it easier for me to feel like part of the community.
As for the staff, I have no complaints there. They keep things professional from what I can tell, and try to keep things that are behind the scenes, behind the scenes. I like the fact that they try to filter out any ooc drama before it becomes an issue so that the players don't have to deal with it. There are hiccups here and there, but they are dealt with quickly and professionally.
RP is amazing. They have several things going on at once, and it makes things really interesting, and I'm wondering how they can keep track of everything at once. Big drama and things of an epic nature are fun, but I'm the one who notices and appreciates the little things too. Little things like having the normal, average NPCs suddenly interact with you like other characters adds a lot of color, and makes it feel like the towns and cities are actually populated by normal people and not just players. Can't stress how much I enjoy the little things like that.
Not sure about the people who code and program and all that... I don't know how they do things or what, but they're usually working hard, 'round the clock. That being said, the fact that they take my requests seriously and give it lots of consideration is really appreciated.
All in all, it's a good place, and I've met some good people I'm glad to call friends, and I'm really happy to call this place home.
