This is a great MUD code and world wise, however it suffers from a fatal flaw. While the members of the nemesis clan (a clan devoted to new players) are great at helping you out... the rest of the players and several immortals seem to treat new players with complete disrespect.
This has already driven me away from this game, as the STAFF of a game should never be pigs towards a player. Nor should they allow such elitism as displayed on this game.
A few examples of the things that have been done to me that are minor, but also contributed to my decision to leave:
During a quest run by an immortal, the immortal asked a question and said that there were 3 answers (which he was wrong about anyway) and I gave 2 correct answers, but was only rewarded for one. When I asked the immortal why I was only awarded for one, I was completely ignored. So, I quit participating in the quest, and the immortal quits giving it. Thus punishing ALL the players for their own ignorance in thinking that there were only 3 1994 Nobel prize winners, and not giving proper rewards.
The MUD itself has an intrinsic downside in that it is 99% hack and slash. So, trying to liven things up I started a word game over chat, and was rather rudely told by first a couple players, (who hid behind a special invis that I could not see yet) and an immortal, to stop. They said I was 'spamming' and called me rude names, with the least offensive being dumb. Several people were enjoying playing the game, yet the few had to be pigs about it, including an immortal.
I am also constantly criticized for being a female, simply because in the past many males on this MUD have pretended to be female in order to get free equipment and levels from those long time players who are perhaps a little desperate and starved for female affection. Talk about a real turn off.
So, despite enjoying the MUD itself, and the members of the Nemesis Clan, and the company of one very kind immortal... I am moving on. Maybe it is time for me to cease mudding in general. I do not know. But if you desire a MUD that doesn't cater only to the 'best of the best', don't play here.
