This mud is very well coded and thought out, with strict RP/PK Policy as well. It also takes a long time to develop your character. About 6 months later, and I still had yet to max all my sciences. New features have been added over time, a gathering system invented and makedroid feature adds a nice touch, and gameplay can be hours of fun if you find the right people to roleplay with.
However, from a player standpoint I have yet to say that LOTJ has matured into the utopia of star wars muds that it could be. There is still corruption among immortal staff, some of whom tend to have vendettas (I've been the target of several).
A personal account should explain it best. Here is my experience:
I returned from a break of about two months and created a jawa just for fun. I'd been playing for about three hours, joking around like I usually do, with the people who AREN'T busy botting. When I noticed one of the 'friendly' imm staff had decided to set my jawa as a human for 'poor' roleplay. Mind you it had been awhile and I may have said a few nonsense things on IC channels, but nothing drastically over the boundaries of that race's RP. Now, their rules state that you'll be given a warning and a week to adhere to the roleplay rules if your're inconsistent with the RP for that race until that type of measure would be taken. For me it was different. I inquired about why I had been immediately stripped and was met with a rather rude response and even called an 'idiot'.
This is the type of treatment you can expect from the staff if they don't like you. There is no diplomacy, nor is there negotiation. If you are vilified, then it will be clear they do not want you there and any good characters you roll, you can be sure to lose it somehow until you get the message that you are clearly not welcome there.
Other than that, if you haven't made any enemies with the staff and get along fine with everyone, you have nothing to worry about. There is however, an occasional spammer here and there who sends rather obscene messages to the mud and causes it to crash totally at random. This could possibly be another disgruntled mudder who has taken matters into their own hands in an non-constructive way.
