Let me start off by saying that I am a person who likes sifting through MUD reviews for those that are really interesting and actually informational. Not the 'This mud is not like all the rest' or simply 'This mud is great.' So if I am righting a review I want it to be very well written. Both for the enjoyment of the reader and to present an accurate and well-described picture of what I happily call my 'Home Away From Actual Home.'
Alter Aeon is a Fanticy based mud that has been well taken care of, well tended to and loved by it's many players and staff like a loved garden. These great people are not only dedicated to turning out area after area, but they actually show signs of life, interacting with the rest of the world.
Speaking of gardens, the hard working coder, Dentin (no, it's not that stuff in your teeth... He's the wonderful coder of Alter Aeon!) is activally taking ideas and working to add the sixth class to the currently five-classed system, druid. At the moment you are able to play as a couragious warrior or savage barbarian, unholy priest or devoted cleric, shadowy pickpocket or skilled ninja, flame-throwing pyromancer or ice-channeling cryomancer, blood magic specialist or undead master... or a mish mash of all! And soon, a druid, a true elementalist who tames and uses the forces of nature rather than ripping the raw mana from outer planes shall be ready! Even now you can pitch in and make a valuable contribution to the soon to come class. There's even a few articles about magic mechanics and other such interestingly trivial things in the expansive website.
Alter Aeon, apart from being a beautifully described mud, with equal attention to the slicing and dicing, bashing and slashing aspect and clever puzzles, fiendish clues parts. With truly unique spells and skills that differentiate one class from the other, but the chance to blend one with the other as you please, AA truly allows for player customization while keeping some realism. You won't bee seeing any magic-wielding assassens with 9 dexterity here.
Alter aeon offers a varied selection of compatible clients, including one made by none other than our truly savi coder, Dentin. It's even got support for blind players, with a mush-z client that includes an excellent soundpack. The Dclient (as the custome Alter Aeon client is known) supports MSP and has a pretty extensive soundpack of its own.
Long are gone the days of pointless slaughter and simple quests brave adventurer! This fine new world sits like the next unopened chest, awaiting your searching hands! Filled with the spoils of battle, yet full of sneakally designed traps! Such as the fact that the easternmost gem in the box was coated in a swarm of microscopic karnivorous mushroom spores....
