Realms of Aarendil


NOTE: Every class has a special powerskill or powerspell at level 1 - Please practice it fully!

My name is Taj. I am the head of the mud. I have been playing muds for a real long time now. I started back in 1996. I started playing ROM 2.4 and ROT codebase muds primarily. I enjoy playing unique ones and I'm very picky in what I like. I wanted to create a mud that recalls all the good things I seen from the past and incorporate it in mine.

The ROT codebase is what I'm most comfortable and familiar with. I met many good people from this codebase and I have always put my time on those with this codebase.

Realms of Aarendil is a mud that I made to give the player enjoyment in just playing and staying active. At first I was big on powerlevelling but I think a player's joy in a mud is to receive the experience of good things that occur - whether it's unique EQ, good exp or fellowship with other players, there are many elements in attracting and gaining people's attention.

I try as much to conjure ways to make the mud exciting - but for those real new to it, you have to give time to it. You have to allow 20 minutes to sink into what's provided and just play.

I push to put fun factor in it and I encourage you all to try it.

We want happiness in you when you come to ROA.

If you're alone in the mud, just come back later - people normally play here randomly. While the player base is low, the mud remains and people still love stopping to play.

I hope you are curious to try.

Thank you.

Though a bit simplistic and much too easy, the mud itself is OK. Especially for someone new to mudding. For those experienced, it isn't very exciting. But, if you just want a game that prevents boredom. you could play here. The problem is, the complete absence of oversight of players. 2 players are basically allowed to rule the mud, and no one on staff does anything about it. If the two players disagree with you, you are harassed with name-calling, insults and worse, until you just leave rather than deal with it. It is a very hostile environment. I did complain to no avail. I was basically told I need to learn to "deal" with these kinds of people. Though in all my years of mudding, (at least 15) I have never been subjected to such horrid behavior. I warn you, if you are a woman do NOT consider this mud. I was the only one of 2, me being the regular player. It was very intimidating and lonely, especially with these attitudes . No one should put up with that. Even on a mud. A mudding experience should be pleasant for everyone. Not just a few.

I hadn't played since yesteryear, and thought I would give it a shot again. See what is new and what remained the same. Gave this MUD a shot and was not disappointed at all. Enough was familiar that I was able to get back into the groove again while enough was different that I have come back for more. The imms are extraordinarily helpful (without being enabling) and responsive to requests. The IDEAS board is _not_ ignored and changes are coming for the betterment of all. The primary user base, while small, is growing and very friendly. Taking direction from leadership, there is no hand-holding and doing-for, but rather encouragement and assistance. It truly is a fun place to wander around, hack and slash, quest, and socialize.

Taj, the implementer has been putting long hours into this game! It's fun, and while there are several stock ROM zones, there is new stuff as well. He is tweaking about everything you can tweak ... and a few other things I have no idea about!

Come check it out! We've got some good folks playing and building!
