There a are alot of so called "roleplay Muds" , but find there is much roleplaying, cause this how it normaly works:

you find or make up a plot line, and act it out, now it can be forever onging but it's still based on the plot.

Has anyone played a mud that felt like real life, where you constantly interact with other players, just going through the normal activities of every day life?

turth be told I found it but I can't afford the $20/month for it,
so I'm looking for a alternaive

in all the muds  I've played I never realy made any good IC friends, til this one, I ran into someone that help out, then the next thing I know , when I got tired of hunting, I sought this person out and we'd talk for game hours about IG stuff


when I tried the game out , I thought I had my budget figured out, turns out I didn't


If you have no idea what the hell I'm taking about sign up for a 30 day trail for Inferno: www.ke9.com no , payment info needed for trail

you have to purposely avoid RP , it's amazing


but so far it's the only one I've found like this

Well, I run Southlands, so I might be biased, so take this with a grain of salt.

I think our mud does just that.
There are rare times when crazy, otherworldly stuff happens, but for the most part, it's pc's exploring the culture that we've built and changing it as they can.
Unfortunately though, the playerbase is small, so if you can't rp alone, or feel odd looking to rp with someone, this is probably not the mud for you. We also have strict rp requirements.

I do think though, that our mud has some incredible roleplayers. And that we offer something that no one else does.

I'd also reccomend Armageddon. They have a very harsh world that is only helpful in it's roleplaying potential. Very different world, but I used to play there and found it extremely entertaining.

Then there's Harshlands. Played there a few times and found it okay. I didn't get into it, but I may have not given it enough time.

Then there's Fourlands. It's the sister mud of Southlands and has slightly different flavor and VERY different OOC policies as far as how involved the imms are (not at all! It's all what the players put together, which has alot of appeal.

There are my reccomendations!
Thanks!

I'd recommend OtherSpace - it's SF, but it has quite a few fantasy-esque races. We've got so much happening that it's filled three actual books (so far! - with more to come).

Daily news headlines are regularly popping up, giving the world a sense of liveliness - and with our space system currently getting an overhaul, it's pretty easy to maneuver about the galaxy using the +hitchhike command.

Check out our website at http://www.jointhesaga.com/otherspace.htm and look through the log archives for the sorts of things you can expect.

Our telnet address is jointhesaga.com 1790.

Regardless of your choice, have fun and enjoy wherever you end up!

ok I'm going to not to be rude,

I have had a bad experiance with armageddon

#1 the connection sucks , character creation lags and rooms descriptions load in a chopy , I was told that there is a delay to prevent people from speedwalking, but what I got was short delayS throught out the loading.

perma death is anonying because you have to come up with another Name background , ect, when first learning this game, you can quickly become hard up for ideas without being repetative.

If they get off DSL I might try it again



OtherSpace left a bad taste in my mouth
the webpage supplies inatiqute info to create a character
one I couldn't not find a page that that discussed the naming convention of the diffrent planets, which I was called on, and the didn't "LIKE" the skill set I choose for my occupation

And I'm not wasting my time with a nerfed character(I know it can be upgraded)

Dont' try any of the muds I mentioned if you don't like perma death.

Some people really like that, me being one of them.
But that's a subject for another forum, I think.

Oh well, I hope you find the mud you're looking for!!

Well, first off, sorry to hear about the bad taste.

Second: We just moved to a new website. Sadly, I'm only human, and the bulk of info from the other site has not yet made the transition. Eventually, it will.

Third: The only reason anyone recommended the "nerfed" character was your indication on the application that you were just basically MUD hopping - and the fact that your app was effectively a bit character bio. Bit characters are perfect for people who don't want to waste effort on a full-fledged bio and want to get to know the lay of the land before trying.

Fourth: Although the web page is in transition, our newbie helping staff is still quite large, and should have been perfectly willing to answer questions about naming conventions if you raised them. If they didn't, let me know.

In any case, good luck in your search.

Well, first of all, I know that Feudal Realms may not be quite as roleplay-oriented as some of the others mentioned. But, when I first started on Feudal, the type of roleplay you mentioned is pretty much what drew me in. I found a couple of players to interact with ic, and we would just go about doing everyday things and talking about whatever was on our minds.

There are major plots, however, which affect the happenings of the entire world, but players are free to roleplay their own mini-plots, or just everyday activities, like you said. Some people just choose to spend the majority of their time gaining levels, but if you stand around the city square, I'm sure you'll find plenty of interesting conversations going on, ranging from "How was your day?" to heated discussions among the nobles.

If you're looking for truly immersive RP, you could try Dartmud: The Lands of Ferdarchi

Be forewarned, however... DartMUD is hardcore RP. Not necessarily as in the kind of RP where who can say "Wherefore art thou bare of clothing, knave?" in the best medieval accent, but as in walking around asking "How can I learn to be an assassin/thief/other unpopular and illegal proffesion?" will get your head lopped off. Where insulting the neighborhood firemage will get you burned and permakilled - yes, permakilled. To play DartMUD you must be mature, willing to read the helpfiles, and willing to learn... It's tough, but the reward is immersive RP like nothing you've seen before.

If anyone's interested, a good place to start is Tellborn's Guide to DartMUD.
