Armageddon MUD by Faded Grace

One very common phrase you are likely to hear at Armageddon MUD is this, "One death is a tragedy, a million is a statistic." Whatever thoughts flare in your mind at the utterance of this single phrase, they are probably true. Harsh? Yes. Unreal? Yes? Heartbreakingly sublime? Totally.

Over the course of seven-and-a-half long years, I have had the pleasure (and in some cases, the extremedispleasure) of commiting myself to the statistics of five MUDs. I have labored and toiled and sweat to perfect those MUDs, once or twice as a staff member, but more often as a dedicated player. And after seven-and-a-half years, do you know what thought above any other persists in my mind? Pointlessness. It is an oft-discarded truth that no matter how hard you strive in a MUD, as a player or otherwise, your efforts always fall short in effecting any real or lasting change. (Yeah, I bet you're wondering where I'm going with this, right?)

At Armageddon I found this is not always so; players who apply themselves can have a real impact on the way that life continues on the world of Zalanthas. Whether as a blade-running mercenary of the T'zai Byn, or a Blue Robe of the Allanaki Templarate, or a commoner begging on the corner of Commoners' and Caravan Way for his next meal - you make an impact. It's an amazing and profound thing to feel connected to a senseless jumble of words and numbers, but here at Armageddon, we do!

In the end, could it really be any other way? With such a sprawling gamut of choices to indulge in and risk your life over, how could anything here devolve into such a base and vile thing as pointlessness? And though life is harsh and oft-times short here, we welcome you to join us for what you will hopefully find to be a notable and worthwhile roleplaying experience.
