I started playing Overdrive in 1999 and became hooked rather quickly. When I started playing OD the game had a respectable player base and it was filled with unique areas. While the areas are still there, the player base has lowered some. Lately myself and a few other Overdrivers have been working on creating new and fun areas for players to explore and they also offer a mini-quest feel to it. We have added additions to the MUD to allow for more player progression past the 160 level cap. Hero Levels are new to the MUD and of course give players that have capped out the chance for further progression. Recently we also added colorized items/equipment based on the quality of the item. The quality colors used for each quality item is set up by the player, while the quality is defined by the wizard of that item. For example, if a wizard sets an item to be of 'good' quality, the player can set up the color for quality/good to yellow, red, blue etc. There are still active players who play on the mud and they are always willing to help new players. Even though I am a wizard and somewhat biased, but the active wizards on game are extremely friendly and are alway willing to help or answer any questions that new players might have. Bringing new players to Overdrive is something we are actively working on, so if you're reading this and looking for a new game, Overdrive would love to have you!
Overdrive offers a ton of mini-quests and it has 11 unique quests for players who are looking for an intense puzzle to solve. More mini-quests are being worked on so if you think you've solved them all, just wait, more are coming. There is no PVP in the game, but we do offer dueling, a non-permanent player verse player combate. And every so often we offer Party Wars. Overdrive is extremely fun, challenging, and very welcoming for a hack and slash mud. So like I said before if you are looking for a new MUD or are new to MUDS in general we would love to see you around.Post a comment
