I started playing this mud while in college and found it on my own through my endless searches to find a mud that felt like 'home'. Much like many of the other reviewers here I had a rough start and had some flops in my initial RP with my first ever character (Ezrai if ANYONE remembers her). Through time and a TON of patience from the other players everyone I met helped me learn how to play the mud, helped finetune my rp, helped me understand the concept of 'getting into your character' and above all, gave me a kinship which I have been unable to find in any other mud.
Through the last seven years I have come and gone from this mud due to IRL issues and each time I return I feel welcomed as if I am coming home. I am utterly ADDICTED to this mud... Much more than is really humanly healthy. What continues to draw me back is the RP. This mud defines the meaning of 'roleplayed enforced'. The staff will come down and interact with your character, not even as immortals, but they will bring to life the NPCs around you. A guard will suddenly start talking and comment on the going arounds. It makes you acutely aware of everyone and everything around you and really makes the world three dimensional. They have an incredible staff that helps players run their own events from religious gatherings, special quests and even masquerade balls. They are friendly, helpful and are always aware of the wants and needs of their players. It makes the time spent on the mud feel thoroughly enriching. As a player you are not a rating to them, but an actual voice.
One of the biggest advantages of this mud is that the mud itself is not solely built by the staff. There are numerous average players who join in on building areas, checking for bugs, testing code, bringing in new quests and even bringing in their ideas to be implimented on the mud. For those of you that have been 'around the block' with many muds you must be aware how rare this is.
Lastly I must give a big kudos to the playerbase on a whole. Everyone there is helpful, friendly and willing to spend time with each other. Everyone jumps at the chance to go somewhere as a group and they thoroughly enjoy every minute of it. They laugh with each other, grow with each other and really become friends. I have earned some lifelong IRL friends through this game which to me, is a huge testament to the quality of the playerbase. We are just waiting for more people to meet!
