I had a completely different experience on Dune than Zaph did. The
people there were very friendly and helpful, not just with advice
about what to do as a newbie, but advice about different ways to play
in the guild I'd chosen and places to go for my level (whatever it
happened to be at the time). More than once, someone was willing to
meet me where I was and guide me to where I had been trying to go.
Some players even logged in their alts that were members of my guild
and ran around with me for a while. From a social context, Dune seems
to have some pretty friendly people.
From a world standpoint, the game is huge. There are lots and lots of
places to go, with more working and active guilds than I've seen in
most muds. It helps that there's a lot of advice on how to play
available, either from people in the game or from various places
online (including the Dune website.) Since every guild has *very*
different strengths and weaknesses, this is a huge help. Also, their
website is really useful. They've set up a wiki, and the players have
obviously spent a lot of time transferring game information (including
help files!) to it.
To be honest, the game that Zaph played doesn't sound anything like
this mud. Dune is probably the best sci-fi themed mud I've had the
pleasure of playing. If you're into the Dune setting at all, or enjoy
the genre, it's definitely worth your time.
