I've been a hardcore player for a little over a year now. This is an awesome mud to play on, the people can be friendly, but watch out for the player killers if you're new at this. I just read a review and someone mentioned poisoned cookies; poison is a spell, and it sounds like someone cast poison on them.. If you had slept you may have regenned a little faster and not died. Like mother used to say, don't eat food from the floor. :p This is the only MUD out there where I've seen a graphical wilds like that, and a rather fast mud at that. There is almost never a time when there is a user count below 100.
