My history with Mordor might not be as long as some of the seasoned players, but my passion for Mordor might be just as strong as them. I started playing Mordor around 2002, although i have left the game for a short spell of a year or so, its no denying that its allure is irresistible.
Once you start playing Mordor, its like being enchanted with a spell. No matter what, i always end up back there because its everchanging and dynamic system makes it a new experience every time i log on. What makes it even better are the players who are on it. Some of them have been on it ever since Mordor started and everyone of them are friendly and helpful. It's undeniable that whats makes Mordor such an interesting place to be are the people and gameplay.
Gameplay wise, there are 5 classes which are warrior, cleric, mage, thief and ranger- each with their own weaknesses and strengths. How powerful you end up in the game depends heavily on your stats and class arrangement making the game even more challenging and fun. Therefore its advisable that any new players should explore Mordor first before fully starting on with a serious character.
To make it even better, on Mordor there are remorts, a specialization for players to follow once they reach level 70. Remorts consist of knights, priest, wizards, strider and assassins. Just like the 5 classes, they are there to provide extra skills and encouragement for reaching such high levels. It is because of these classes and remorts, it makes Mordor a game worthy of replaying over and over again as each time the experience would be different.
At first, it might be a bit hard to level up or hunt, but once you get used to the system and make friends on Mordor, it'll become an unforgettable experience. With an abundant of equipment for every level and classes, it makes it much more interesting to hunt and look for them. Questing is a huge part of the game, as each quest that you complete you receive quest points and from there you can use these quest points to buy quest items. To put it simply, it's close to impossible to be bored on Mordor, as there are always events or something going on.
There are also alliances/clans for players who have reached certain requirements to join, and once you join these alliances you are offered special weapons only available to the members. Being an alliance creates such a sense of belonging as everyone within the alliance will be there to help you whenever you need help to get items, to farm or just talk.
The immortals/coders/builders of Mordor has done an amazing job in ensuring that everyone has a great time and that the place will never ever get boring. With new areas appearing constantly and contest being held to involve everyone, its no wonder Mordor has such an alluring charm.
Therefore i urge whoever wants to have a new and enchanting experience with a MUD, give Mordor a chance and maybe like me you'll fall in love with it.
