My experiences with LOTJ as a whole, over my time playing and staffing
there, have been pleasant. This is despite the ever-present
problems that every MUD has of the players who are only there to cause
everyone headaches and frustration.
I played Legends of the Jedi for a period of several years, moving
my way up from hopeless newbie, to a Roleplay Council member, to an
Immortal in that blip of time. I got to see a lot of how the MUD works
from every angle, and while the positions I found myself in caused me
minor headaches at times the general playerbase always remained
constant: Fun, devoted, and able to adapt to almost any change. It was
the one thing I missed when I resigned my positions on the MUD to
follow through with my education and career.
When I came back two years later, I was surprised to see that the old
spirit hadn't changed. The Roleplay that a lot of our players put
forth is without peer at times, and while we do have a few cat-girl
skeletons in our MUD-closet, most characters rolled by our members are
well developed and always up to something.
I would be lying if I said that bias', exploitations in code and
staff, and power-gaming weren't present here like they are in every
MUD at one point or another. The difference I've found is that once
there is a problem, nobody stands for it. The issue gets resolved, in
the end, no matter how many times someone tries to get away it. We all
strive to make LOTJ better than ever, with everything that happens,
and that what I feel has made the player base still appeal to me in
the long run. It's why I came back, and why I'm still playing now.
