Iíve been playing Nilgiri for about 6 years now. I was 12 when I
first discovered it and now Iím 18, so Iíve pretty much grown up here.
This is the first mud I played and one of the nobles at the time,
Almari, made me feel very welcome and taught me everything I needed to
know (including how to talk, you type say before the message btw!).
Itís a small community and the people Iíve met over the years are
pretty close to family. We have our problems every once in a while but
thatís what makes it interesting. It is a very real social place, as
well as a place to game.
The mud community is split into two separate continents. You have
Jora, which is the original area and then you have Argoceania, which is
newer than Jora (not that new, I started here!). I canít honestly say
much about Jora, as I have never really played there. It has a lot of
older players though and I believe it is quite a bit bigger and
Argoceania is huge itself, so that must be a lot of area.
Unfortunately, not much has been added recently as Sin, the
Implementor, is currently working on something really big. Hopefully,
it will pick up soon though. There is a lot of history here which is
also fun to uncover.
I know that I will never leave Nilgiri. Just come in and give it a
try. Itís newbie friendly as well as a good place for veteran mudders.
My name is Ceruvil and Iím a noble in Argoceania. I hope to see you

This review is very accurate. I have been playing this MUD for over a
decade now and as many times as I have gotten 'bored' or just tried
getting away from MUD's in general I find myself migrating right back
to this same game.
It is very addictive and makes it hard to ever play other games again
as it is very original in the way everything is done, from the
leveling/class system to the extensive justice system. This MUD is
currently undergoing some MAJOR changes in preparation for the release
of a new code basis so with the anticipation of these changes alot of
the older, more seasoned players have dropped away while waiting for
the new release. However, there is still a decent support system of
Immortals and still a few of the higher level players around to help
you out in a jam or get you started if you are new.
Come check it out, its worth the effort!
P.S. (Jora is way better than Argoceania ;) )
