Well, you asked for it. You want a mud that doesn't suck? An actual MUD that is worth playing? Well...Why are you just sitting here and reading this then? You should be playing Arcane Nites! This MUD has been running stable for 8+ years now, with an amazing coder and Imm staff, a nice friendly player base, and all sorts of fun things.
And unlike most of those garbage muds, you don't just sit around and level all day if you don't want to. You can sit around and talk to other players if you feel like it, maybe join in some on of the quests, explore if you want (just be careful not to venture into any dangerous areas), heck, go gambling even! Check out some of the built in quests if you really want to.
What's that? You don't like how all muds have the same things over again? Well, don't worry about it. This mud is unique in so many ways, from character creation, to areas, to just about anything. If you don't like how little customization other muds give you about your character, then this is also a good place for you. Say you wanna be a Fighter, but wanna cast some of those minor spells that perk you up, you can do that. Or, you could be a wizard with some physical training. And each class has multiple unique abilities that give them their own specialties. The same goes for the races as well. You can be anything from a Minotaur paladin, to a gargoyle Ninja. This is truly a game for gamers. Check it out sometime and ask for help, I'm sure I'll be on, so just ask me if you have any questions ;) or you could ask the friendly Imms or other players, which you can get to know on a very friendly level, even outside of the mud. So check out Arcane Nites, just don't get too addicted...we don't want you to lose your job or anything :3
