I'm very new to this MUD. I also posted in the forums hoping to get
more folks playing because I'm really liking this MUD so far. I
rarely post or do reviews but I enjoy this MUD to the degree that I
want to share it and get others to try.
So far it has a very classic medieval fantasy feel. There's not any
goofy/silly stuff or pop culture references and the areas seem very
congruent, immersive. I feel the game has a good newbie path where you
know what you need to do to progress but can also break away and
explore. The weapons/armor in the shops are actually worth using,
having things like hitroll and spellpower, and are also reasonably
priced. There is an Adventurer Guild with tasks that give guild
points, which you use to buy special items. However the tasks also
give XP and gold which again I'm not used to, and really enjoy. So
you can hunt/grind if you want and also get additional fun rewards.
Skills/spells system reminds me of Skyrim. You actually get a
significant amount of xp from improving abilities through use.
Skills/spells are ranked using words like 'awful' or 'proficient'
rather than numbers or percentages. Spells are grouped into categories
like Alteration, Rejuvenation, Evocation, etc., and you can choose to
improve both individual abilities and/or the school they belong to.
There appear to be a lot of extra abilities in addition to stock ones,
and from what I can tell you eventually get to a rank where you start
to get completely unique abilities. You choose a sort of 'base'
class and then at some point get to pick one of 3 specializing
classes. For example if you're a Monk you can pick an advanced class
that has more magic/spells or one that focuses more on fighting. At
least this is my understanding so far.
