When I first logged into Asteria it was because of the note that it was in Beta and I seek out Beta muds because my favorite thing to do is Build. While that wasn't an opportunity available, I was amazed by the feeling of nostalgia that this mud brought back.
I am an old soul so nostalgia is a HUGE thing for me and if you're as old as I am and remember the olden day Muds this is definitely a place to check out.
If you are newer to the Mud universe, I also DEFINITELY suggest giving this Mud a try. The delivery of the battle system, quest system and skill system is unique and after you play for even an a half hour, you will see why I am raving about it.
Often times you can be left feeling like even though a Mud is running and asking for new players, the people in control or who own it care very little for making anything new or even trying to give you something unique because of the age of Muds and how much of a niche Muds are. And if they care there are often so many restrictions and outdated limitations that cause players to choose a totally of 3 out of 12 offered races because their stats are the best or the design of the skill system forces players to level-sit or quest-sit at low levels. I get very sad when a Mud doesn't want to create anything new for its players just because of the age of Muds and how niche the genre is.
Asteria feels like the opposite, for me at least. I can feel the passion and care that the Immortals and Owner place into their work and how much they have listened and taken into account, all the player feedback over the decades to offer you the way to play how YOU want to play. I no longer feel the pressure of making sure my character has perfectly picked the correct stats or the perfect race or skills in the right order because you can redo it all at any time! This gives you ultimate control over the progression of your character and the style and feel of fighting you desire.
Come say hi and lets make this adventure as grand as we can!
