Note that as I write this review I am still deciding if I will become a player. Currently it looks like I will choose not to, and here is why. Being drawn to muds involving vampires specifically, Havenrpg.net/Haven:Mists and Shadows came across my search so I decided to try it out. I went through the process of making an account because they have the "Newbie-Friendly" tag falsely displayed on their listing. Now please understand that when I say falsely displayed I'm not just throwing it around out of spite, from what I've seen they aren't. I only saw 6 people on when I looked at the who liskting in game, so after my 5 minutes total play time on the mud, I went to their forums instead to ask for some help getting started, tricked into believing that "HavenRPG" was in fact newbie friendly. Ten minutes after I wrote my post to ask for help, I returned to the forums to find that I had been banned from the forums, and presumably the mud as well. They had "spam" listed as the reason for the ban and a note at the bottom declaring it would be lifted "Never". So I urge you all to carefully consider the following question: Does a reasonable person over the age of ten consider one single polite post asking for help to be "spam"?
They do not. The conclusion is simple. It is an absolute miracle that Haven has even allowed one single player to stay on the mud or forums at all. It is obviously a private mud which desires not to have any new players, it is not newbie friendly, and it does not deserve to be listed on a mud site. I have all the evidence I need to know for a fact that any positive review given to the mud was written by the owner pretending to be a player. The mud should be avoided at all costs.
