LOTJ is a phenomenal player driven roleplay environment that hooks players by the sheer depth of the game. Before I played LOTJ I barely knew anything about Star Wars and I had never participated in any form of table top roleplaying, such as D&D. I didn't play LOTJ because it had anything to do with Star Wars. It was quite the contrary in fact. LOTJ actually turned me into a Star Wars fan and showed me how rewarding a roleplay environment could be.
It has a wide variety of professions to choose from that may be familiar to those who have played the SWR codebase, however there have been several changes over the years that have expanded the game to a great degree. There are several things to do whether you want to make millions creating the best equipment in the galaxy as an engineer, pickpocket and swindle your millions as a smuggler, make your millions claiming bounties as a bounty hunter, or endure a life on the run as a known criminal. The possibilities are endless.
The game has something to offer to both people who enjoy roleplay and those who enjoy a player killing environment. However, PKers beware because death is final and there are no second chances. I have lost several characters in the past who have been involved in the shadier side of things and to stay ahead of the pack you have to be quick thinking and tactful. Though, the feeling of outsmarting your opposition is exhilarating.
I have tried every class and every single class has its perks, but regardless of class your character will always have a diverse skill set depending on the race you pick. The game is very well regulated and the staff takes their positions very seriously. You don't have to worry about a corrupt staff here and there is a Role Play Council (RPC) that is elected by the player body to help assist in PK disputes and general roleplay technique.
I invite anyone to come try this mud out. I know if you take the time to appreciate all it has to offer you will be around perhaps as long as I. Our players are helpful and we always welcome new players, because with a larger pbase the events of the game can get even more exciting and crazy than they already are!
