Looking for a great place to roleplay? How about a place where you can hack'n'slash your way to infamy? What about a place where the Player Killing is active, and the divide between Non Player Killers is existent but undivided for other aspects of gameplay? I was too, and luckily i found it pretty quick. Its called Waterdeep and you've been fortunate enough to stumble upon it.
On Waterdeep there is a very active playerbase that boasts 50+ during the day and still roughly 20 average players during the wee hours of the night(I base this off of PST). We have players from all around the world, and though there may be people from all walks and morals of life. There's always someone on who is willing to help out, team up, and/or answer your questions.
The mud consists of 2 tiers, those being of 101 levels, the first 20 levels are comparably easy to attain compared to the rest. The leveling system may be quicker than your average D&D based mud, but that's because the gameplay focus has been mainly on the hero level offering a vast ammount of things to do. Regardless, people have still found ways to entertain themselves long term below the level of hero (101).
Waterdeep has an ever expanding world propelled by a very capable team of builders made up of dedicated players, and even the staff member immortals themselves. The Staff is always willing to listen to suggestions and is always working to enhance and balance the gameplay.
The playerbase boasts a very vast cultural diversity, we have players throughout europe, southern asia, australia, america, canada, and theres even a guy who claims to be egyptian. Should this review wet your pallet and you find yourself logging on, i guarantee you you'll be hooked. And there's no harm in trying because Waterdeep has never charged the players for playing, its simply run out of the goodwill of the Immortal Staff.
Regarding the immortal staff, there just always seems to be at least one online! Usually more, they are pretty active and most of them are known for often holding mudwide events tailored differently to the styles of gameplay. Some times its Mass Pk Arenas! Sometimes its long Roleplay campaigns, sometimes its some gargantuan beast requiring the likes of 20 or more players! Either way its always a hoot.
I started playing this mud when i was 13, I'm now 22 and still enjoying it. Waterdeep has always offered a vast dynamic of styles of gameplay. Theres the people that Roleplay, theres the people that hunt for the greatest Equipment, theres the hardcore Player Killers. Its hard to believe, but the mud has always offered a great atmosphere for all of the styles players have cared to take on. The mud has been through alot but always held strong through it.
The lead immortal and owner, Nisstyre, has personally vowed to never shut the mud down until no one logs in for a week, and hopefully this review will further the delay of that time for many years to come!
I look forward to seeing you there! -Vandalandius
