I have played many muds, starting since the age of 13. Gem Stone 3 got me hooked, but I couldn't stand the fee. Then, I found that those MUDs with huge playerbases don't allow one to stand out very much. That's why Abandoned Codex is so great. It is easy to understand and comprehend, has a sizeable average player count around 10-15, has great administrators, fun players, and some excellent roleplaying. It also has alot of new cool features, classes, and areas, including remort classes. I highly recommend trying this MUD out.
