Around the end of 2008 my fiancee introduced me to Adventures Unlimited. I was new to mudding, the only net gaming experience I ever had was paragraph role play, and was very unsure of myself when I first began playing. I didn't understand anything at the time, but the players on the game were very quick to help and advise me.
This made it a more enjoyable experience, the fact that everyone was patient and willing to lend a hand. Of course at times there weren't any players online, but that happens. But more often then not there are people on who are very friendly and a pleasure to game with.
Being a new player to the whole mud gaming, I had a hard time navigating the newbie school at first. But soon it became easy and I quickly fell into a comfortable playing state. There is an automapper which is awesome and makes the game even more enjoyable.
I have been told about bad experiences on the game from times long passed. They are very few compared to the good stories and experiences that have been shared with me as well. The mud is under new ownership and the new owner is wonderful, as helpful as he can be and always trying to sustain the level of excellence the mud has.
Rules and regulations are enforced, but leniency is there. I have never seen someone no channeled or banned for a ridiculous reason. All have gotten what was due to them for their behavior.
Immortals are selected for their understanding of the game, how they interact and what they can offer to the game. All of the immortals and staffers I have met so far are wonderful and very helpful.
The game is still receiving new areas, built by people who have played the game, so the areas are unique and made specifically for Adventures Unlimited. The stock areas are going to be going through a face lift as well, which will make the game stand out even more.
The only problem I have with the game is role play. Personally I have a hard time starting or continuing a role play but players have worked with me on that. Other than that, it is mainly that participation in role play is low. Recent events have boosted the rp, but more is definitely needed.
Any who are looking for a new, friendly and well put together mud should give Adventures Unlimited a try. Since I began mudding, I have tried many others and AU stands out. I prefer it and have become an AU addict.
