Shadowgate is an old MUD and it has some die hard players. It can be
fun, but you should know a few things before investing time.
1. Skill means little on this MUD. Your level progression is limited
by your play time. For top level, Admin requires 15 days play time
(yes, that's ridiculous and yes it is down from 30 days).
2. Expect immortals to be invisible, to talk behind your back, to
post sticky notes about your play that only they can read. Expect
upper levels to also talk behind your back (known as 'HM's' or
'High Mortals'). Its like a pack of middle school girls.
3. Immortals play favorites big time. They cheat too. And they have
no compunction about deleting accounts of players that they disagree
with. --- Just to give you an idea, I posted some comments on an off
mud yahoo board and had my account deleted, full disclosure.
This MUD used to kick some serious butt, but it has gone to the dogs.
