I've played this game since 2004. I've been several different races
and explored several areas. Even with this amount of play time, I'll
be the first to admit that I haven't done everything there is to do
in this game.
One of the things that I absolutely adore about this game is the way
skills work. The game gives you access to certain skills through your
profession, but there are plenty that can be learned and gained
through other means. Your profession doesn't limit your character and
it is encouraged to switch professions once you hit the capstone. But
back to the skills. Let's say for example that I want to learn
forging. I could find an NPC who teaches it or join a profession which
opens it up or I can roll the dice and debate an appropriate NPC.
What's more, is that I can improve this skill through practices
(called pracs for short) or simply try the skill over and over. Both
are feasible ways to improve the skills.
The player base is one that is super helpful. If you are stuck in a
bad room and can't get out, typically someone can and will help you
There is a lot of room to roleplay here. Player killing is allowed,
but typically people will have to have good reason. In a lot of ways,
you will find people teaming up to fight the monsters instead of
fighting each other.
I cannot stress how much fun I've had with this game. Every six
months or so I will hear its siren call and feel the need to spend
hours upon hours in this environment that has been lovingly created
and curated by fans. Other MUDs simply pale in comparison.
