I was brought to Act of War by a friend from another mud. From the very first visit, I was hooked. The pure pk atmosphere is tough to endure sometimes, but in all honesty if you can't stand the heat, Hell's belly probably isn't your piece of real estate.
It is tough to get started here, and I've relayed the idea of making it a bit more newbie friendly, at least to give the beginners a hand up into the harsh reality that is Act of War. I believe that in the near future, that hand-up could be a given.
Granted when I came here for the first time, there were quite a few more players available to give advice and help. With the current mutiny still burning at our backs, there are few loyal players left. So, if ever you see me or one of my alts around (BELAMORGE) just give a shout and I'll do what I can to help out the new players. I am certainly not the best player, nor the smartest, but I am more than willing to help out a future friend and even a worthy foe.
So, about the mud: 3 kingdoms are available to choose from with the idea of Good(Tier), Neutral(Kael), and Evil(UM/Undermountain) that battle with one another for control of the land. It is a heavily modified ROM, I believe and fairly close to other ROM based muds as far as simple commands and structure.
Most of the world is original and I would hate to even venture a solid guess as to how many rooms are available to explore. There are no level restrictions on equipment (if it is lying on the ground and doesn't obviously belong to someone else, it is yours). There are quite a few classes and races to choose from but there are standard combinations for each class/race which are listed when you join and if you miss them, most people are more than willing to help you make the best possible character for you. (And while you may accept this as a kindness, you can also expect that it is a chance for them to build a stronger kingdom-mate or a more formidable foe to fight later on.)
This is Act of War, it is MY game of choice. It is exciting, harsh and challenging. I wouldn't go anywhere else to find what I am looking for in a PvP venue.
