I have been playing MUDs for the last ten years and fancy myself somewhat of a connoisseur of Text - Based RPGs. We all know that every game has its strengths and its weaknesses, but there are precious few that can be emboldened by their deficiencies.
Unwritten Legends, under the direction of nine highly qualified staff members, is a free (more on this later) RPG experience offering a flavor for almost anyone. The creative staff have blended together knights and wizards with the steampunk of engineers. Each profession is on a fairly level playing field and the staff strive to keep it as such. The exact period the game takes place can be anywhere between 1000 and 1750 in terms of technology, philosophy, education and lifestyle.
In having such a diverse range of colors on the palette, they can paint each individual plot or plot grouping to whatever is most desired. You can play an archaic nobleman with strict values and ideals or you can play a radical engineer, bent on seeing social reformation. The choices are expansive.
One very unique aspect of the Staff Philosophy lies in how things unfurl. This pertains to staff lead events as well as profession updates and expansion. The opinion of the players is highly valued and can often alter the direction the staff originally intended to go. The world is malleable and the lore is ever changing. This is the idea of the name itself. Unwritten Legends.
A character can cause drastic change in an event, as the staff are not playing by a set script. They are willing to bend and shape their ideas to allow full participation and to show that all actions have consequences. All concepts are welcome, providing they fit the theme. Thieves and Criminals, an Evil Ritualist Housekeepers, and Demented Religious Officials: all have a place in Unwritten Legends.
As mentioned previously, Unwritten Legends is a -completely- free to play MUD that does not offer any player an advantage for their monetary contribution beyond customized items. Players cannot buy their way to the top ranks, but must earn it through their time and role play. This point, in conjunction with the previous is why I highly recommend UL to any player, young or old, experienced or less so. There is a place for anyone who is willing to try.
