Ok, where to begin. This may take awhile.
Ok, im probaly the most HATED person in this game, do i care? Not really. it's kinda hard to get stuff/go places/ get help. In-all i think i have about 20 friends. most people i've known from the start, This is the first mud i everplayed, during my stay here i've tryed a few others, they suck.
I've played Moongate/Materia Magica since about november 1998, i never got all this "help" you people are constantly talking about. but hell, im refused alota things.
Over time, you find out players have immortals and who there mortals are. 1 for example. Loged on my char and stole all my equipment from my 'Archon' tho the imms said he didnt, i know for fact he did, when he admited it. Recently there was a crash in mm, i lost something that is valued with a large sum of MM's currency "gold" not replaced. oo well, the game is 'sorta' balanced many disadvantages to the game.
The benefits of this game are.
The Vmap, very nice for travel.
The fact that if you have 80 dollars your charcter may stand a chance.
The class/race/multiclass system's. Very cool.
Being a Archon. Good times indeed.
Quest, The items, Practices, all the rewards.
Lot's of items/areas.
Pee-kay system! kinda fun, off-balanced tho.
The fact that $80.00 U.S can get you 'balanced'
The players are sometimes assholes. i mean real assholes, as i've said before, im the most hated person in the game, im most untreated.
The fact that you can play (ill stretch this) THOUSANDS of hours and still have a sucky char is very un-cool.
My archon's page looks like this.
