I have only been playing this MUD on an almost daily basis for about 3 years, but in this time I have made some of the best friends I have ever encountered and roleplayed some of the best scenes that I have yet to write.
With a diverse environment, there is room for Player killing, Roleplaying, Mob killing and many other forms of excitement!
Only being a roleplayer myself, I cannot say much about the other two facets of the game. But I can say this: if your looking to RP on any MUD, RoD is the place. It has some of the most talented and most outgoing RPers I have yet to meet.
