I just recently started playing this mud, but I have had an account
for many years. It's an awesome mud, beautifully detailed maps, a
huge world, tons of things to explore and lots of fun. However, you
are allowed only one char.
There are a complex set of safeguards in effect that help to enforce
this rule. My partner irl, for example, decided he wanted to play. But
since we're on a home network he had to wait almost a week for a
coder to log in and allow him to play. It seems though, that some
players have found a way around this, and that the creator(s) are
actually allowing, if not aiding these players...say for example one
person who can control 6 chars and run afoul completely ruining the
game for other players.
In this mud, when you die ...you die..it really, really stinks. There
are heavy penalties and perm death is a very real threat. The other
day, a great friend of mine died to an NPC, and his char was permed by
one of the above mentioned cheating players. A few of us tried
everything we could to revive him, and would have been successful.
Then one of the creators decided it was suddenly time for a reboot.
Completely desting his corpse and bugging his account. This is
apparently not the first time something like this has happened. Such
blatant and obvious cheating, by both the players and the coders would
normally not be allowed, but in this MUD they don't seem to care. I
was unaware of the coder involvement at that time ...silly me..and I
begged them to help because he couldn't even log in anymore. I was
completely and utterly ignored for the longest time, then I blew up a
public channel about it, and finally got a response. Oh well, he's
gone, move on, in a nutshell. Great game...but I can't believe they
allow such obvious cheating and abuse to go on.
