Midnight Sun is like a good book that you cannot put down. Whether you are fighting a new opponent in a newly opened area or close to solving a cleverly written quest, you will find yourself becoming completely lost in the game. I started playing Midnight Sun in 1995 and it has never become old. The immortals are attentive and the powerful lords/ladies are very newbie friendly. There are enough guilds and subguilds to fit your or your role-playing personality. I have played other muds and have found MS to be the best. I can say only one bad thing about MS. Once you start, you will not stop. Not only will you lose track of the time in the land of the never setting sun, you will also lose track of time in the real world. And that is just how a good book should be.
