I've been playing Avatar off and on for 7 years or so. The game is constantly evolving and new ideas are always incorporated into the game. It is quite challenging with lots of great players. The sheer size of the MUD always has something that you can do, in my 7 years I still have not been to some of the areas!!
I recommend this MUD greatly, everything is fair and it is easy to get along with the more experienced players such as myself!
By this point you should be connecting to the MUD! See you there! Happy hunting :)
