I've played this game almost ten years, and despite complications
with other players at times - I'm always drawn back.
The rich history of the races, the ease of which players are willing
to help you, and the well-thought backstory of the world all
contribute to a gaming experience that is unique and wonderful.
I've tried jumping to other MUDs at the recommendation of friends,
and none had the helpful players, staff, or indexing of helpfiles like
I've seen in Lensmoor.
The best part of the game, honestly, is the openness that you can
approach the staff with ideas and feedback - the implementation of the
Idea Board and the voting system of ideas makes for a sense that you
are not only playing the game, but helping to write it and improve it.
With the status-driven system for reputation, it allows distinct
playability of your character, creating your own path - rather than
following a cookie cutter shell of how a person should act. Your
actions have consequences, both good and bad.
Furthermore, the players and staff have loved the game so much, and
put so much into it - and it shows. In recent past, some players/staff
decided that other games shouldn't be the exception for voice
interaction, and a ventrillo server was established and documented.
While communication on it is out of character, it allows you to get to
know the people behind the characters and staff, and give you a human
interaction, instead of just type.
I have recommended and recruited players to this game for years, and
with the game adding more zones, abilities, spells, and racial
features, I'm sure I will continue to do so for years more!
