Imagine if you will.... You're standing in a meadow. All around you are the cute and cuddly creatures of the meadow. You 'ooo' and 'aww' over them for a short time before noticing an implement of destruction in your hand... Without a second thought you begin pounding the cute little creatures to a nice pinkish mush.
Thus begins yor adventures in Avatar!
Avatar is great. The gameplay and people on the mud are so great that they drew me back out of the evil world of MMORPG's. I played for a few years and then took a break to 'test out' other more visual games. After the evil had taken hold, an old friend contacted me and mentioned Avatar. I though "Hey! let's check it out again!" and now months later I'm still here, and gripped more so than before.
The staff is helpful, the content is great, and things are ever changing.
I look forward to seeing you there!
