This was the first MUD I had ever tried, and I was instantly hooked by the unique limb-based combat system, and the challenging leveling curve with threatening death penalties.
There are class styles to suit every player in this game, you can blast enemies with magical thunderstorms and conflagrate them filling rooms with flames and destruction. You can let loose and go berserk swinging your weapons faster than an eye can blink, spinning and whirling while dealing immense physical damage to all who may be in your path, you can sneak through the darkness, lurking through the shadows, waiting to unleash your wrath of poison and neck-slitting on an unsuspecting victim. You can even bring ferocious beasts to life, sending them to mutilate your opponents with relative ease.
With the amazing different types of classes, spreading from magic to melee, tanks to burst damage, evil to holy, any person can easily find at least one class they thoroughly enjoy. My personal favorites are thief and mage.
Another very fun feature in this game, is the fact that there are countless mini-quests, and hidden items/areas to be found in the most unsuspecting places, from cities in the sky, entered through mysterious magical ropes, to centaur havens, hidden in the most curious wilderness.
Unlike most games, where you find all of the best players using the same equipment and fighting the same monsters, you can work hard to find some unique equipment and monsters to kill, in areas no other players have found, making this game very unique. The combination of resets and a vault also make the game much more fun, and challenging.
Lastly, I love this game because it flows so perfectly, the balance is so awesome that you can play the game at any level, and never feel like it is too easy to too hard. Many other muds I have tried are just simply 'too' something, whether it is too complicated, too simple, too easy, too boring, too spammy, whatever it may be, Moral Decay tops it all, and has various interesting minigames within, such as poker, paintball, and many others!
I hope you give Moral Decay a try, if only to see a functional limb-based combat system! See you in there!
