I started playing Sloth when I was a freshman in college (1994) and
I've been hooked ever since. With an absolutely huge world (27000+
rooms), there are constantly new things to discover. The 9 class
system allows a vast variety of options for a player to choose from,
and the play test option lets you test drive different class
combinations to allow you to fine tune what you want to do with your
character. There is a very active immortal population that is
extremely helpful to players, along with periodically running quests
that spice things up and challenge groups of players.
The slothmud.org website offers a comprehensive list of resources to
make your mudding experience easier, such as detailed maps of the
different areas, an equipment list that is easily fine tuned to find
exactly what you want, along with a very nice list of the different
The player base is absolutely amazing. There are usually players on
at any given time that are more than happy to answer questions you
have due to the wide range of time zones that different people play
from, and if not, there are forums available on the website where you
can post questions that are usually answered in short order from a
large group of dedicated veterans.
I will be forthcoming in saying this: This isn't a mud that offers
instant gratification. Yes, your early levels will come easily and
quickly, and the range of areas you can hunt in grows quite varied in
a short period of time, but this is a mud that was designed to be
played over a period of years, not weeks. The wide range of well
written areas will keep your inner explorer happy as you progress from
a newbie on the starter island up through your advanced levels as an
avatar, and if you're a fan of watching your character develop their
skills and abilities, this mud is sure to keep you entertained for
years to come.
