IMHO DuneMUD is the best Science Fiction MUD there is. I thought
about it the other day, and after not having played a MUD in years, made a new
character. I hadn't logged in for ten years, and I am oh so happy I did! The
game has been around forever. Once you blow through the others (or they are
'not supported'), it is still there. I guess that makes it the best MUD there
is, for me (I also don't like Elves, so DuneMUD 4tw!).
It is based on Dune lore...but being a MUD means that there is a lot of original content
, as well (player created). You have a variety of Guilds to choose from (10
uniquely different choices!), and at level 20 you can take active part in PvP.
DuneMUD is massive, and allows for good customization within the game.
Most of the information you need is in the helpfiles/wiki. The wiki has been
mostly player created, however. With so few players who care to contribute to
the game (the point of a MUD!), and the wiki being a relatively new addition...
it can be somewhat difficult to find what you are looking for (use the search).
Also, being that the game has been around, there are things that people just
don't know. Sometimes you have to ask a couple of high level players for help,
before one knows (of the top of their head) the details of what you are talking about.
I love the fact that you never have to log out. It is great, because I go AFK
often and even play it while playing other games (I used to play it while doing
homework, haha). The ONLY flaw is a relatively low number of online players.
Right now, for instance, there are 12 (10:00 AM Pacific). With a couple hours of
playing, I often run into somebody (usually near a main hub). Even if there
wasn't single player logged in, I would still play this MUD. I would still have
fun. DuneMUD is an immersive environment, and the rules are enforced (fully).
Each, and every, player I have dealt with has been perfectly respectable. Any
time I need help, somebody either directs me to the proper place or gives me a
hand. Sometimes people are grumpy, there is a full moon, who knows...but that's life.
Do you like science? Do you like Dune? Then make a character, and you will
NOT be disappointed! All the 'issues' can be remedied by an active player base,
who is willing to contribute. Play the game (have fun), build the wiki, share
your knowledge (in all areas!), and lets help each-other prevail through the next 10 years...
