Began on Eternal Visions: Hrm, back in 2001??
This is my one and only MUD, as I have no use for any other. First
off to mention, the place is HUGE. There are over 25,000 rooms and
it's still growing. Player contributions are appreciated as the
sheer size keeps more and more information needed. Something I've
found so helpful it's necessary, is the color ANSI map, so even
though the game is text based, it keeps your directions straight. The
game play is very interesting, as there is always somewhere new to
explore, new races to encounter, and TONS of hidden areas to find.
It has an alternate reality/old world feel to it, though I don't
know how much of that is intentional. Leveling and learning are set up
to reasonable difficulties to keep advancement interesting and
obtainable. There is a good assortment of races and classes to choose
from and the backstory is well interwoven into just about everything,
and yet they made it in a way that you can still get along without
knowledge of the backstory (it will find you eventually). RP is
heavily encouraged and it's entirely necessary to advance. RP is
developed into the big picture story.
The command list is extensive, so you are able to do just about
whatever you want. In fact, most things about this game are extensive.
Weapons listings, available rooms, social commands, animals, NPC
The Immortals (staff) are online a lot and always willing to help the
newbie out. The current player base is not large, but everyone is
happy to help out with any questions. The game has been very fun for
me to play and we'd love to see more folks online with us. A lot of
hard work has gone into making this a great place to be, and as a
player, you can tell.
