Realms of Despair is a fantastic MUD which features over 100 quality areas, promotes multi avatar runs, immortal-held quests, thematic orders as well as guilds, ability to choose deadly pk. I started playing in 2000 and I can honestly say this is by far the best mud out there. It is truly addictive as you can always find something to do. Mkill is extremely fun and can be very challenging, glory you earn from immortal-held quests can be used to modify your eq, there are dozens of skills/spells for each and every class. The economy is well established and the immortal community is very active. New players will have no problem playing RoD as they will have the help/guide from the Newbie Council!
