I have played here for several years. The game is one of my favorites, but every game has flaws. First, I'll start with the good. The code is really advanced, more so than your average ROM MUD. There are many features that most RPE muds don't have, like messages, rumors, personal events, which are kind of like mini prompts to boost your RP, and many other features. Second, the community is warm and welcoming, despite its small size. Third, the world is finely crafted. The room descriptions immerse me, and I can almost picture myself there. As a final plus, staff response time is reasonably quick, and the small group of staffers seem to work in sync with each other as well as the playing community. Like I said before, the game has flaws, and here they are. First, the theme is oppressive. It's hard to play anything but a faithful Davite who blends in without bringing the order down on your head, along with the masses. Free speech is extremely limited, especially if you don't want to be branded as a heretic, which brings with it whippings, brandings, and at the worst levels, burning at the stake. While these things are part of the theme, people don't come to a game to be locked into boxes. In a world of strictly enforced conformity, anyone who doesn't blend in attracts the notice of others, and woe to you if you disobey a noble. They can lash you for disobedience. Second, the player base is small, at least in my opinion. Even in the evening hours, players are scattered across the grid, and it's hard to find RP if you don't want to sit in a tavern or church square waiting for RP. The grid is large, and I believe it should be fully taken advantage of. If you're looking for a dark world with a medieval theme, interesting story arcs, mostly, and a fully featured codebase, with everything from livestock breeding, to farming, to having children of your own, as well as the flavor of several cultures to RP, the inquisition: legacy might be a good fit.
