I've been playing Tharsis Gate off and on for five years now and I always enjoy coming back to it. There are a lot of experienced players who will help you out and teach you things. It's a very comfortable environment to just play around with and have fun in. Whether you like to chat or play, you should like this MUD. The skills system is very nice, along with the three available guilds. There are certain differences and advantages to each. Come try out Tharsis Gate and I'm sure you'll get hooked on a great game.
