After playing on MultiMud for about a dozen years or so it seemed a good
idea to put up a review. The MUD is an RP encouraged environment. I’ve
seen people come on who like to remain in-character, those who focus more
on killing and leveling but still add that touch of personality to their
character, and those who tend to just socialize as themselves while either
loitering about the fountain or going off to kill the gods of Olympus.
You have a choice of 17 races on this MUD and 4 starting classes with the
ability to remort farther down the line. So once your character is fully
leveled it is one of 16 classes. Each one is balanced out well with its own
strengths and weaknesses. One class I really enjoy is the bard as they get
a spell called play instrument which opens up a number of extra spells.
Each instrument will play a certain number of songs and you have to choose
which ones you want. You can ‘tune’ the instrument and it will change the
song for you but it does this randomly so it might take a while to get the song
The mobs are also made so that some are harder for certain classes. For
instance some of the mobs might be ‘aware’ so that they can’t be backstabbed.
That makes for some unhappy thieves and assassins. Some mobs are in rooms
that magic can’t be used and those characters that chose to go with a
spellcaster only class are in trouble. For every main strength of a character
there is a weakness. Of course you can choose a class like warlord, which is a
mixture of warrior and mage. You give up the added strength of say
choosing warrior again as your remort class to mix in a bit of magic. Thus a
mob that can’t be affected much by just sheer strength can be taken down
The immortals on the game are nice, even somehow while being evil they are
nice. They are more than willing to listen to requests. They also sporadically
will come up with quests or tournaments you can choose to take part in.
Sometimes tournaments are class based, such as a bards tournament for the
best bit of bardic entertainment at other points it might be an open game of
hide and seek.
Aside from the immortals tossing out quests there are also a number of them
already programmed into the MUD. Roam the area and find mobs talking to you
asking for your help with some problem or another. Prizes vary from experience
points, to items, or quest points. The types of quests also change up from
needing to go killing things to finding something, or a mixture of both.
Also this MUD is BIG or maybe HUGE is a better term. No idea on the exact room
number and even over 15 years it’s still growing. I can safely say over 10,000
how much over I’m not sure. They have 3 continents on the game, as well as
a few islands and then there is a portal that you can take to get to an entirely
different planet and a more futuristic sci-fi setting. The planet is Mos Eisley
and from there you can go to a number of other planets. Believe me,
there is plenty to do so that you don’t get bored.
PK on MultiMud is an optional thing. There are certain areas you can find
arenas that anyone can player-kill in or there is the underworld, a zone ruled
by thador who will send his minions out to get you. The zone changes
landscape every time they reboot the mud and the entire zone is player kill.
The other option is to turn outlaw. If you’re an outlaw you still can’t fight
in the cities but anywhere else you roam on the mud you’ve got to look out for
This place is excellent for newbies. Both the immortals and the players are
ready to assist people who have any questions. It also has a newbie start up
area that will help take you through the basics and get you a feel for things.
Plenty of ways to communicate your questions or socialize on this game. A few
of those include a newbie channel, ooc, gossip, clan, auction and more!
The mud has several clans you can choose to join depending on your preference.
While it is not mandatory to join a clan it helps offer more rp opportunities,
can help you connect more with some players, gets you a beneficial clan item
of some sort, as well as several other features like clan homes.
Multi Mud also has a website and a facebook group to keep in touch. The
facebook goes over a lot of the basic details of the MUD, offers some map and
help files and even has a who list to see who’s playing.
