I was having problems connecting to the mud I usually play, so on a recommendation I tried AU.
At first glance, it has everything one could want in a fantasy based mud. Interesting race choices and most of the standard classes one would expect with a few more creative ones.
I quickly made a character, which was very easy to do and jumped right into the action. I found the newbie school and quickly started to get some xp so that I could move on to questing and player interaction. The school was easy enough and seemed like most I have encountered on similar styles of muds.
The mud is listed as RP encouraged and I do like to RP so I was very interested in getting done with the school.
About ten minutes into the game my first hunger warning flashed up. I didn't give it much thought. I just ate some food and kept on xping. Then almost ten minutes later it happened again. So i ate once more and went back to killing mobiles. The third time the hunger warning flashed was ten minutes later. At this point I started to get a bit annoyed. How many times do I need to eat in one day? Well after just sort of an hour I had to eat five times and drink a lot. I am not sure what causes my intense need to be eating all the time, but is was very annoying. I asked why I had to eat so often on the newbie channel and was told that once my constitution was higher it would happen less. This was really not the answer I was looking for. Luckily for me I had chosen to play a warrior char and was spending training points on con already.
While I will probably try to get past the eating annoyance, more than likely I will not make this my mud of choice. I really can't understand why on an RP mud you would have the hunger come up so fast. I can imagine myself getting into some nice RP with another player and having to eat three or for times before we can finish a single conversation.
Other than the eating problem, Adventures Unlimited looks like a great mud filled with countless hours of exploration and quests.
Oh, Did I mention the other players were very friendly as well.
