I've played the game for ages. Recent versions have been plagued by certain immortals that make the game as unpleasant as possible; playing edited mortal characters with godly statistics, abilities, and equipment. Instead of making a character like the rest of us and spending the months to achieve their goals, it's about thirty minutes for certain admin to wank out a character and spoil the fun. The reasoning is 'mortals can acquire everything' however the probability of such is astronomical if not miraculous. It really is a wonderful game, however I won't be returning anytime soon - until the administration matures. It was once quite rewarding to explore the mysteries of Ravenfall. Now it is a matter of how exactly certain admin will flaunt their ego on a daily basis. I would challenge them to actually make a legitimate character, but there's no interest in that - only lording over players and undeserved graces. When one voices their concerns it is considered whining, and even when validated - for instance a character is removed - another takes its place in the same breath. Perhaps I will return someday; but the game was much better years ago, when administration kept to their work in the shadows instead of trivializing other players.Post a comment

It is true, admins have made characters, and used their admin powers to enrich the lives of their characters. However, this is nothing new. Many admins of the past have done this, including the game's maker Athelstane. No harm has ever occurred as a result, and the problem here is more or less the results of a hurt ego. The dispute here is with a single admin who would change the makeup of his character to ensure his invincibility, and while this may be classified as cheating, this same admin deleted said mortal character and made a more legit one based on the complaints of this player above.
However, it was not enough, and his friend continued on with the complaints and even lying about the intention and actions of the admin over the public channel, despite the admins attempts to appease these two players. If you do not like admin interaction via mortal characters, then yes this is not the mud for you. But if you are ok with admins making mortals, no matter how invincible, and are looking for a great and unique mudding experience then encourage you to come on over.
