Akanbar has been a complicated land. Rewarding those whom are determined and disciplined in their area of interests. Politicians, scholars, merchants, and warriors are equally valued in the land of Akanbar. For me, Akanbar has been a place of great turmoil. Serving the Empire as a slave and crawling up the ranks only to oppose the Empires Deity and to plunge head first into abis. Once a feared member of the Forsaken and now a Honorable and Just warrior, instilling hope and bringing light to even the darkest of places. Akanbar is a home to all though, even those who rely upon deception and prefer to hide within the shadows, unable to be seen except for those with keen eyes.
I confess though, Akanbar is a land that requires a certain amont of time before you will understand the beauty and intricacies of it's lands. The first time I tried, I played for less then a week and gave up on it. A few months later, I returned and gave it the second chance it deserved. I have never regretted it. Akanbar isn't like other Muds. Those that would say 'We have over 1000 unique skills' or 200,000+ locations. Heck. I am sure akanbar probably does have 200,000+ locations... I don't count though, nor care.
Akanbar is a land that has has a great level of immersion and a very delicate and well defined system of balance. Each city is at their best when all roles are played. A warrior is never at his best without a smith that can provide him/her with armour and weapons of the finest quality. The smith can't fashion such armour without someone to mine the ores. This same kind of progression within Akanbar is evident in everything. The combat system is the same as well. Each guild is unique and very capable of out dueling the others. Each guild is also capable of uniquely benefiting another in its combat skill. Though no one combat guild is over balanced. Meaning that it really is dependent upon your abilites rather than which guild you are fighting as or against. This is especially important to me, because combat is what I live and die for.
Akanbar has numerous features and undiscovered mysteries. Once such mystery is the Kraken. Nobody has lived to tell the tale, but there are rumors that such a beast resides beneath the waters of the sea. Akanbar is one of the best lands that have incorporated sea warfare. Within the last year, three new villages have been added and a Player Killing area also has been added. These are the big additions. Many other additions have been made, though it would require you to take part in the world of Akanbar for yourself.
With this review of Akanbar, a place I dwell in and call home upon all other lands I have had the pleasure of taking part in, I hope that you will take a moment and live within my world. Akanbar isn't a land that is perfect... but the people in it, and the people that take care of it, do the very best. This land isn't focused on making a profit, it is focused on the experience... I'd like you to be apart of that experience. Welcome to Akanbar.
