When I first started The Inquisition: Legacy, I had to be wrangled into it by a group of close friends. They all insisted I would love it if I gave it a try, but to tell you the truth, I had my doubts. I had dabbled in MUDs before and I liked the idea of a text-based game, but I had never managed to become attached to one. I tried a few, of course, but the excitement usually faded within a few weeks and I lost interest.
That all changed for me as I started playing this game. I've been playing The Inquisition: Legacy now for over two years. Here are a few of the reasons why, and why you should too:
The game has one of the most complex, well-developed themes I’ve seen on any MUD. It is centered in a medieval realm not too unlike our own, called ‘Urth’, where, hundreds of years after a mad King’s loss of his family to magic, the Inquisition seeks to eradicate all signs of magery and heresy throughout the kingdom. There are eight unique regions, each with their own cultures and features, and a history spanning hundreds of years with books and lore to match. Though it may seem like a lot at first, there are also thousands of helpfiles to give insight into the game.
TI: Legacy has staff members who are miraculously sane, courteous, intelligent and unbiased people. They’re happy to assist with improving RP in the game, they make certain to solve issues in a nonpartisan manner, and they’ll promptly reply to any inquiries, requests or bug reports. Not only that, but they seem to genuinely care about the opinions of the players. There is even a weekly ‘OOC Meeting’, in which players and staff gather together to discuss what improvements are going on, how RP is, and possible future changes for the game.
The game is centered around roleplaying, not grinding, with players who are creative, kind and diverse. There are infinite possibilities in creating your characters. Here are a few I've seen or played:
-a lanky Tubori seaman turned to a thief in hard times -a beautiful but treacherous Vandagan bard, also a spymaster -a loyal Knight, crippled and returning from the Edessan wars to the capital -a greedy Vavardi merchant with an eye for power -a former guttersnipe from Southside, running a Tavern with two friends -a mage pretending to live a normal life while possessing hidden gifts -a Farin magistrate trying to balance the scales and put criminals to justice -a young, naive priestess, unwittingly put in a position of terrible power -a former noble in disguise, struggling to live a common life
And these are just a few of of the many possibilities out there on TI. I encourage anyone who loves a good story, interesting RP, and diverse characters to come check the game out. If you do, feel free to send me a tell and say hi.
