I'll make this short and quick:
This mud cannot possibly have been 10 years in development because it simply doesn't have that kind of customization. In truth, I've seen snippet pack rats who put together a more unique and non-stock looking SMAUG MUD than this.
The best advice I can give is to go there yourself. See if you think it's been in development for 10 years. This MUD doesn't live up to its advertisement and that's all I wanted to convey. The rest you can see for yourself.
