I played Armageddon when it first opened. *shrug* Just another mud, with a Dark Sun flavor. I hung for a while, then went on my way.
Then, a year ago, I tried it again. Wow.
Emote code that rocks. magick code that's slick. Descriptions that are beautiful. Crafting code. A million little details that show so much attention, so many little twiddles and nitpicky carefulness - npcs that talk back, perfume code, gah, I could go for hours. Fabulous roleplayers. A staff that sends out a list of changes every week - and credits everyone who's submitted a bug or typo that got fixed. A hardcore, crazed bunch of players that have their own little community.
Wow. Oh wow.
