Amazing But Shady Game I have been with this mud for many many years. I have seen it go through many phases and changes. It is an amazingly fun game that allows you to do practically what you want and make any type of character you want.
But there are somethings you should be wary of: 1. Though it says RPing is not required, it basically is. You can play without RPing, but it will take some amount of it unless you don't want access to many really good spells. If you are not RPing you are missing out on a large portion of what makes the game good.
2. This game is Arawn's(the creator) sand box, he changes things rapidly as he sees fit. You have to accept this before playing. He will make huge sweeping changes over night without warning.
3. Drama Queens and Cliques rule this game. The strong and influential people in this game will bully you if they get a chance. While this is part of RP, many of them will take it OOC and even take it out on you on your other characters.
4. No Privacy, there are a LOT of Imm staff in this game. And they are compromised of the players. Around 40% of the the active players are Imm Staff, and Imm Staff in this game can hear every thing you are doing. So don't expect your secret rp or trash talk about someone else to go unheard.
5. Corruption, While there are a lot of friendly(or at least openly friendly) Imm Staff some of them are also the above said Drama queens. So starting over with a new character fresh will not let you escape them. They can see your IP address, and from personally experience they will not hesitate to tell others who you are. Arawn does his best to combat this, but he has so much on his plate already that most of the time nothing is done. And he hears complaints about it so much that he really doesn't care anymore.
Despite what is said above, this game is a work of art and it is a lot of fun. The community at first will seem warm and welcoming, but be careful, because the community is actually this games biggest problem.
