I have been a long term player of Legends of Terris since I came across it on AOL when I was 14, and over the years through its independence from AOL, I continue to play. At 30 I find that I sometimes enjoy a game now and then and this is one of the first games I think of.
While many text games are alike, train stats,do quests, kill stuff, and level up, Terris stands out to me because of its extraordinary roleplay and rather unique utilization of stats.
If you are a hack and slash text game player, or a casual player or a roleplay devotee, Terris has something for almost everyone.
The heart of Legends of Terris are its players and Immortal staff. There are many epic storylines that are current in the lands and a Message Board system is used for some roleplay as well as extensive roleplay within the lands.
We as players, in our choices in polls and through participation in roleplay events, may even change whats happening in those stories themselves. Invasions from Dark Elves, chaos Storms that destroy the Guilds and break their magicks, there is bound to be a story for everyone to enjoy.
For the hack and slasher - There are several forms of experience gain, such as
Land Levels, Guild Ranks, City Ranks, and Temple Ranks.
There are 16 races, 9 classes, 15 Guilds and 9 (current) temples to choose from. With so many choices you can just imagine the type of characters you can create. A bow wielding Berserker in the Rangers or and Two-Handed Sword wielding Sorcerer, there are many combinations, each with its own perks and flaws.
There are many ways to equip your adventurer.
Most Guilds have programs for active participation in Guild Ranking or participating in guild roleplay events, where you can earn gold or equipment.
Armorsmithing - Players can craft armor, like Steel Plate Helms or Mithril Breastplates Weaponsmithing - Players can craft weapons, like a Double-Headed Death Axe or a Black Mithril Broad Sword Guild Equipment - Gear earned when achieving the appropriate Guild Rank, purchased with gold. Temple Equipment - Earned through RP with Temple Mounts - Many mounts to choose from, Guild, Temple and regular. Arcana - Craft arcana pieces for crafting items Jeweler - Craft jewelery that has helpful stats and can be enchanted by some casters! Herbalism - Mix herbs and seeds together to make healing, buffing, or curative herbs
While there is the element of hack-and-slash, the Roleplay is really the reason to stay. The more players that come and stay within the lands of Norrath, the more events that can happen, and the larger the events can be.
Legends of Terris is a challenge, and I extend that challenge to other people, that might just be looking for something new to give a go. The staff and players are nice and a lot of attention is given to the game in terms of fixes and updates to make the experience for all players better.
If your looking for fun stories, a nice challenge, and some fun roleplay, enter Norrath and hunt down the creatures of Norrath and make a name for yourself, as you roleplay and slay your way to becoming a LEGEND.
