I've played many muds before, from Avalon to old Star Wars muds and I must say, this is the absolute best that I have ever had the pleasure of playing on. The amount of work that spans over a period of ten years with the dedication that the staff has shown has proven most fruitful with the introduction of such an advanced and intricate game. The world is large and diverse similar to the environments of the ancient Egyptian civilizations with a much larger, far more complex social structure and gods that spend the time to help newbies along as well as provide quests and interesting plot lines.
Anybody interested in a good roleplaying experience in which you actually play the role of another person, I strongly recommend this game to. Those seeking a hack and slash game should look elsewhere, this game has been made great over time by the enforcement of roleplaying rather than skill building and it would be a pity for it to be lost.
