I've been playing FK for nearly a year now, and I don't see myself
stopping any time soon. To start with, the game is newbie friendly.
The playerbase is supportive of new characters and there are plenty
of volunteers to answer your questions and help you out if you need
it. Player-killing is very strictly controlled under RP guidelines so
you don't have to worry about being sniped as soon as you leave the
The game world is based on Forgotten Realms, and if you're already a
fan you have plenty of chances to show off your knowledge. But it's
equally forgiving for people like me, who had nothing more than a
vague idea of the setting and no MUDding experience when they first
logged on! Players are concerned with good roleplay more than
questing and bashing for XP - there are loads of player driven events
to get involved in which add immensely to the richness of the game
world. In my time here I have seen performances by bards, jousting
contests, traveling merchants, religious celebrations, weddings...
The game is constantly changing, with new areas being built and new
quests and items added. The forums are extremely active and any
player is welcome to make suggestions for improvements or new
features. The players and staff really care about the world they
inhabit and want to improve it.
FK is addictive and I have been known to stay logged in for over 10
hours at a stretch, wasting my weekends in front of the keyboard and
clocking over 100 hours per month. Yes - This game is just that good!
If you are serious about roleplay and are tired of little snots
running around claiming 'chaotic evil' is an excuse to slaughter
other players at will, or are sick of people chatting about what
they're watching on TV while you're exploring a dungeon, then give FK
a try. If you prefer hack'n'slash and want to become an uber-powerful
killing machine, then this game is not for you.
