Began on SlothMUD: August 2004
I have been playing MUDs for over a decade now, and sadly my
previous MUD of choice shut down for good late last year. So I was
left to surf MUDs to find somewhere else to hang my hat. That's
when I stumbled across SlothMUD III, and I love it.
The idea I like best about this particular MUD is that they work
hard to make it a balanced game. Balanced in the perspective that
it's not so easy that you are likely to get bored with it quickly
(like I have with some Godwars MUDS) and not so complicated that
someone new, like I was, can't log in and feel fairly competent
within a week or two of playing.
I've always felt that a MUD is just a game, and that fun should be
the ultimate goal. I mean, really, my real life is complex enough.
I surely don't want to come home from a day's work just to log onto
a game and be expected to work just as hard there as I did all day
already. I think that SlothMUD III accomplishes just that,
interesting group/party chat, with an assortment of things to do to
pass the time, and wonderful solo abilities, which works for me due
to my limited time restraints (what with family and all).
I would definitely recommend anyone give SlothMUD III a try for a
couple of weeks, get the feel of the commands and the game itself,
and see for yourself. As for me, I am confident that I've found my
new home for a while to come.
Thanks to the Admin who put together such a worthy MUD as well as a
fun place to hang out.
