The theme is pretty much anything awesome and is extremely pollished
and well crafted. It's pretty serious action and you're afraid to
die so it gets your heart beating. The system is simple but deep,
spending experience to gain skills and stats with tons of guilds and
races for experimenting in different builds.
The mud has dropped into some obscurity from hundreds of players, but
those of us still mudding agree it's the most interesting one and
with the absolute best play mechanics. There's also an open
application process to become a wizard and code there, which is how
it's collected such good content over the years.

out sometime, and cheers. Oh, one more thing, there's no sensoring at
all and anything goes, so it's rated R, such as life. That's not to
say people are jerks, it's all for the good and groovy.
