As nearly every other review has pointed out, the code is fantastic.
However, I personally found the game to be incredibly unfriendly to
The roleplay is often sub par at best, yet the older
players tend to insist against all logic that theirs is the only way
to roleplay. One or two line tidbits quickly inserted into a scene
with no discernable read order does not interest me, but I at least
don't mind putting up with them - people have different styles, after
all. This attitude of tolerance is not returned by most players of
AW. If you take the time to actually pose something worth reading
from a literary standpoint (As some simply prefer doing), they will
spend the next few minutes ridiculing you over public channels and
OOCly mocking your roleplay ability. While this is clearly very
hypocritical - them mocking anybody's roleplay ability when they
learn toward such a simplistic version of RP themselves - no
complaint can be rightly made against established players on this
Asking in any polite terms for a bit of patience while you adjust or
for them to perhaps realize that their style isn't the only one worth
using (or even just suggesting they not RP with you if they are going
to do nothing but ridicule) is strictly ignored. When it isn't
ignored, it's used as yet another means of ridicule. I found staff
and players alike to be hideously pretentious and uncomfortably
cliquish. They (particularly the very established older players) seem
so terrified of change that any slight difference in a player is
obsessed over till the person no longer wants to stick around -
Which, oddly enough, sure feels like the underlying intent.
All in all, though, I feel like I have been too negative. The game IS
a fun one, but don't go into it expecting to be accepted into roleplay
with established players without studying their very simple methods
