When I first started playing Valhalla MUD, I was loaded into a strange village, full or roaming city guards, janitors, and a mysterious Vampire called Nikolai, who would come from nowhere, and brutally murder the older players, and send me to a corridor above the village's pub, and leave me vulnerable to any attack! I was dressed in plane leather attire, with no special weapons, and no special skills. I was a newbie, in every sense of the word!
Through an automated newbie guide tour, which showed me the early commands, essential for getting me started in this new environment, through 35 levels of killing rabbits, badgers, smugglers and plants, and through many weird and wonderful landscapes, I wandered alone. I sailed in tall ships, and I clambered down cliffs, into huge basins made by cataclysmic earthquakes, that rocked the foundations of the world, and created entire new continents. I communed with witches, and I slogged my way through sewers, searching out lost and enchanted swords.
But through all of this lonely traveling, I started getting to know people. All of these people helped me in one way or another, there was no one who was not willing to stop by for even the most casual of pleasantries, and many of them gave me invaluable advice, or new equipment I could use to improve myself, or would point out quests where I could get it myself.
Once I had reached level 40 however, things began to change dramatically. No longer was I a new player, who couldn't join in the larger game, no longer was I destined to roam the lands, getting killed by might wolves, and roaming monsters. I could join other players, even enter their clans! I could go out into the wider world with them, and explore new lands and cities, find things, that no one else had found yet.
That was a long time ago now. I have gone through three different lives since then, shaping my characters into new and exciting forms. I have fought my way from the clouds of heaven it's self, to the very depths of hell, where things seen, and unseen thirst for blood! I have made friends, I have made enemies, and I have enjoyed absolutely every minute of it!
If you want to play in a friendly and fun environment, learn a multitude of spells, become a fierce and strong fighter, a wily thief, a quick fingered battle mage, or just a simple healer, it's all here. If you don't find what you're looking for, you can always become a builder, and help the MUD grow!
Valhalla has been round for a very long time, and with good reason. I have played many MUDs over the years, but they have all paled in comparison to Valhalla!
