As an 'experienced' mudder who started role playing way back in
1995, I have sampled my fair share of muds, mushes, moos and muxes,
but Dark Risings is the only place I call home. What makes it so
great? I'm glad you asked!
First and foremost of my requirements for any mud is a role play
environment firmly rooted in rich history. The land of Rhia is steeped
in lore, so it's easy to immerse yourself in this fantasy world. From
the Creation story to the history of the first vampires, from Romany
stories passed down by mouth to the exhaustive battle lores of the
noble warriors of Crimson Rain, and from the magical tomes of Arcaenum
to the maps and studies of Dawning, Dark Risings offers a firm
foundation for exploring a new land. In-game quests built around
evolving storylines also further enhance the history of the game.
Secondly, Dark Risings has many players who strive for depth in their
role play and character development, which makes role play more than a
'hit and miss' occurrence. On many muds, only established characters
seem to provide a solid base of role players, but at Dark Risings, we
have many players who begin with incredible back stories and truly
make their characters come to life! This consistency in role play
keeps the world of Dark Risings fresh and new. If you don't have your
character completely planned out, though, that's okay! You'll find
plenty of opportunities to discover exactly who they are.
Thirdly, RP and PK are balanced. Although PK isn't my primary
interest, I appreciate that those who do enjoy it have an avenue to
pursue. Lately, I have even noticed that those well-versed in battle
tactics are very willing to teach those new to the game who want to
learn. Clans and guilds do have conflict, rogues do steal, people do
fight, and all of it stems from role play and spawns fresh
If you're looking for a stable and established mud with plenty of
opportunity for role playing and pking, come check out Dark Risings.
You won't be disappointed in what you find!
