Its a hard thing to compare MUD's. Its even harder to explain when you find the right one. What is it that draws you to it?
Why is it 'the one'? After mudding for 15 years and actually playing one or another that whole time. I can say without a doubt i have finally found it.
Robert Jordan 'Wheel of Time' based; it is as close to the books as possible with a MUD. Mirrors of the Wheel is like nothing else out there. Wolfbrothers, Male Channels, Aiel and Whitecloaks are all just the beginning. Set off accross the world, meet with Aes Sedai and Gaidin. Roleplay can be taken to extremes and with an active Game of Houses, there is always a rumor or two to dig up.
Set just before the Aiel War, the timeline allows for open roleplay and epic battles. Clans are many and with Trollocs and Fades soon to be thrown in the mix there is sure to be plenty of action. Any Clan/House/Sept you want to join, Mirrors has it. Perhaps you want to be a Cairhien Elitesman and be at the front when the Aiel sweep over the Spine, or a Shienar Lancer, holding the trolloc hoards at bay. Anything is possible.
With cleanly built zones that sometimes seem neverending and countless mobs/smobs you are never left bored when the fighting dies down. New zones are added constantly to keep the eager explorer in all of us busy. Hidden mobs teaching special skills. Built in quests anyone can do (not clan related). Your always finding something new.
Mirrors has very unique ideas on how the channeling and 'talents' are coded. You cannot select which of the many special qualities (talents) you will be given, instead you must wait for them to emerge in their own time. Channeling has been coded as close to the book as possible, you are able to tie, release and hold weaves. Talents include channeling (Both male and female), Wolfbrothers/sisters also have a chance to be so rabid they cant SPEAK! Oracles (Mins ability), ability to see weave residues, ability to see Ta'veren and more being added.
Any fan of the series would do well to come play for awhile. I'm sure you will find it time well spent. All the players and Immortal staff are more than willing to help anyone getting started and will see you right.
Take a look.
