I've been a MUDer for a while, and I've tried out quite a few MUDs, and I must say, Armageddon MUD is, by far, my favorite MUD ever. At first, the emoting system may be confusing, but once you get used to it, (killergoldfish.com/arm/ helps) you will see how amazing it is. This complex system allows you to express yourself so vividly, it can feel like you're writing a story. That's how it is, for everybody. You're each writing your own story in the grand scheme of Zalanthas. It will probably be a very long time until I quit this game, if I ever do. At first, the character approval process may be a turn-off, but I think this is actually a strong point of the game. This way, the game doesn't turn into some sort of joke, with OOC character running around everywhere. Permadeath is a wonderful thing, too. How can you claim to be a roleplay MUD if you don't have permadeath?! All of this adds to the intense feel you can get from this game. Sometimes, I have started trembling, and breathing heavy, in real life, because of the intensity (nothing serious, the feeling was actually quite awesome). It had my adrenaline pumping, and I LOVED IT! This is the only game that has ever had that effect on me, and, weird as it sounds, it's actually amazing. This fantasy world is so vivid and real, so intense and suspenseful, that you feel attached to your character, you begin to feel like you -are- your character. This is by far the best, most intense, vivid, and immersive MUD I've ever played.
