I've been playing muds for a very long time. Starting with Gem Stone 3 and then looking for a suitable replacement ever since they started charging. At first I found FreeMud, but then it went down and I searched through all the different codebases for the perfect mud. After filtering through all the godwars muds, and the way overpopulated muds I came upon the diamond in the rough. Abandoned Codex is the best mud I have found to date, with a friendly group of players that are willing to help you get started and a reasonable challenge with plenty of great rewards. Abandoned Codex will suit you wether you are in need of a roleplaying mud or just like to level and do your thing. I highly recommend this mud to other players who might be in search of the perfect mud, I was, and this is what I found.
