So 5 years ago I found this MUD that I really liked, it was the only text-based RPG I enjoyed, and then it disappeared. So I started trying a few others out, randomly selecting from this site, and then I found Avatar. There was a one of a kind MUD school which was really helpful to me, and extensive help files. When they say newbie friendly they mean it. For example, My first day I asked for help, and a Lord came to my rescue, to this day he and I are best of friends, on and off avatar. It's an extremely friendly place, and can be social if you'd like. I reccomend avatar to any and all gamers.
