ShatteredKingdoms is a great mud from an RP/scene standpoint. In the
game itself, there's a great variety and mix of RP, PK, enemies and
friends. Leveling is a little tedious, but overall the game is very
enjoyable despite the lack of players.
Unfortunately, outside of the game, there appears to be a constant
battle of players vs admins, and neither side is particularly mature
in the fights. IMMs often act snobbish and lord even the tiniest
mistake a player has made to diminish their opinion, code changes that
impact the pbase majorly are often snuck in without an announcement
despite the large impacts on the game it will have, and views of rules
are changed at a whim to suit the new 'Rules Manager' immortal. I
admit, I have not been on the wrong end of this and much of it is just
gleamed from the official and unofficial forums, so this may likely be
taken with a grain of salt. However, it seems very telling to have
such a huge division between the admin staff and the playerbase about
Not to mention, you are only allowed to play from your home, which is
severely limiting. I often travel for work, though usually have wifi
access in some form. It is incredibly disappointing to know that I am
only allowed to play when I am physically at my home, as any all forms
of proxy/vpns/public wifi's are either against the rules. For a game
that appears to require a lot of time to level and prepare, I do not
enjoy the fact that restrictions are placed on WHERE I connect from in
order to enjoy the game.
Overall, a great mud but I think I'll be looking for another
community that is less divisive against itself, and is less
restrictive in WHERE I can play from.
