Well, I played this MUD for a week. And that's the shortest I've EVER played a MUD. This one, however, as you can clearly see has disappointed me greatly. A friend of mine, whose name I won't release, told me about the MUD. He talked on and on and on about how great it was how the RP was just awesome. But for the week I played I noticed several things that an RP MUD of this caliber was without. For one thing, it was missing a greet system, now don't get me wrong there are a couple MUDs I could name that were good without, but none of them were RP enforced. Or at least RP Mandatory.
Now, you tell me, what kind of RP MUD goes without a greet-system? It kills more RP then it promotes, considering people automatically see your name and title without even knowing it ICly. That was one thing, the second thing I noticed, was the LACK of RP. Sure, I ran into a good amount of RPers, but I ran into more idiots then I did RPers. People playing with socials for no RP reason, like groping you, licking you, poking you, and all such annoying and non-RP-based socials. Now is that really something you'd actually SEE in an RP MUD that has some decency within the playerbase? I think not.
The third thing in which I was greatly disappointed was a rule against using emotes to say things or emoting while saying things at the same time. Now, this I understand, considering with most MUDs that have multiple races have multiple languages. Am I right? But the fact that they didn't even have a secondary command or even a supported feature to allow it in anyway, was rather disappointing. If the coder can code in multiple limbs, and interesting races such as the elephant people, I'm sure they would be able to find SOME way to allow such a feature. But apparently, the coder is either TOO LAZY or simply doesn't care for supporting extra RP. And one of the players had the nerve to say how it would HINDER RP. Now that's just plain silly, I can name several SEVERAL MUDs that have such a feature some that I've quit playing a long time ago.
If I were to rate this MUD, I'd give it a 3/10. It has potential, but if the players continue being idiots and RPing while either drunk, stoned, or in someway in an altered state of mind, then the MUD won't last much longer. The rankings on TOPMUDSITES even says that clearly.
Well, I'm done now. If whoever reads this has any sense of decency, take my word. Don't play this MUD, there are plenty of MUDs that are much better.
