I had never played a MUD before this, and it was awesome. I just tried it. It was hard at first, but there were plenty helpful people who gave me advice, and others who showed me what to do. One person even showed me around in the trial area to help me out. It only took me about a half hour to get everyhting straight, then I was cruising along having fun and chatting. Whether or not you have played a MUD before, I would suggest this, because it is really cool and really awesome!
