You will never find any muds as good as RoD, this game IS addictive, I got hooked to it after about 2 hours of playing, I have been playing for a year now. But what makes it so addictive? Well you have the areas, all the stuff you can do in the game but what REALLY makes you want to stay? The Players, the players are very friendly, they help peoples even if its "easy" stuff. This mud even has a council named Newbie Council(NC) for peoples who are dedicated at helping newbies.
This mud is the best!!! try it out!
