OtherSpace Interactive SF Saga
Well, where should I start?
There are so many good things to say about Otherspace, I can't even think of them all.
Newbies will find that the Otherspace staff and players are quite friendly. (I recieved about ten greetings when I first started)
The staff are VERY dedicated to the game, as are about 99% of the players.
A newbie might be overwhelmed by the application process, which is required for you to enter the actual areas of interest. In fact, they may even get rejected the first few times. (I was rejected once) The payoff of enduring this is an extremely fun time. Players get immersed in a game created by the ingenious mind of Wes Platt AKA Brody. There are about 20 races to choose from, each with it's own distinct social structure. Also with around 20 planets to explore this game is NOT small.
Among the most interesting things about Otherspace is that not only can staffers can change the course of the entire MUSH, players can too! Every little thing that a player does might affect what happens on the entire game.
And to top it all off, if your character dies, (It's permanent death) he/she goes to a big Wal-Mart in the afterlife to get checked in! (I know for a fact because my character was killed when the ruler of a planet blew it up to 'damage' an invading alien fleet) Then if you accepted into the afterlife, you get your own haunted ship to roam and explore, so deceased players can still play! (You can even haunt people occasionally MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... ahem...)
So if you're looking for a fun MUSH to play, and you're willing to give it a try, come to Otherspace!
