To start, Abandoned Realms (affectionately known as AR to those who play it) is absolutely one
of the most intense games you will ever play. The first time you enter PK and you realize that
you could lose all of the precious things you worked so hard to achieve, your heart rate rises
and you will likely get the shakes. After your first kill, you'll be elated. After your first death,
you'll only want to go and get more.
The combat system is no longer the stock system so associated with common
muds. Instead, mid combat skills and changes of spells, depending on your class
are an absolute requirement. This means that even if you have better items
then anyone else, you may find yourself in a bad situation if you aren't prepared.
The world is in depth and the role play is amazing. Those who would claim to the contrary
have never really tried to interact with others, only be interested in the player killing. Trust me
when I say, that the true joy comes from doing both.
Finally, this game offers Custom Races and a constantly evolving list of new races, classes
and areas. As well as new spells and recently added religious boons, for clerical classes to
call upon in times of need.
Do not miss this game. It is the be all and end all of Muds.
