A MOO with an incredible amount of polish, Miriani easily exceeds the other games I've looked at. While I don't discount the experiences of other reviewers and still have my newbie protection flag, I haven't encountered the griefing that's been referenced elsewhere. People have been remarkably eager to bring me into the fold and offer help. This could change once the protection flag goes away, but I'm not dreading it. I kind of find myself looking forward to the excitement. The sheer amount of systems to play with and activities to do is staggering. I woke up this morning hyped to log in and play.
If I had to come up with one criticism, the roleplay is not as immersing as I would like. There isn't much in the way of emoting or writing, just quick says and socials. While this is fine, to teach their own, it was for me a bit of a disappointment. Depending on what they're going for, some sort of system that rewards emoting could go a long way.
The hosts are friendly, engage with the playerbase, and don't have the 'us vs. them' mentality that's prevalent elsewhere. I can't stress enough how important this is. Condescending or hostile hosts can kill the enjoyment of even the best game. Miriani doesn't suffer from that problem at all.
In summary, absolutely fantastic game, good Staff, but I wish there was more emoting involved in roleplay. Give Miriani a try and I'm pretty confident you won't be disappointed.Post a comment
