I've tried lots of MUDs and had some great times, but many of them these days are either gone(can't connect) or forgotten(no one online ever). Then I found Legends of the Darkstone! I was warmly greeted by the staff and other players who wanted to help me get started.
I picked a class that sounded fun, the Gypsy, and decided to get going. I was immediately shocked when I saw actual thought put into quests and NPCs that interact with each other, giving me a reason to look at everything around me. I was rewarded by the realization that the room descriptions were changing based on whether it was day or night.
This is a very established MUD, with tons of areas. The world is set in a way where the geography is represented very faithfully too, so you can journey across large deserts or through dense forests yet the quality of description and the details are not ignored even in what would normally be 'filler' zones. I would recommend to anyone trying Darkstone out to not hesitate to ask for help. Everyone's really friendly and there's a lot of varied and interesting complexity to the world.Post a comment
