Shattered Isles - MUD Description
Shattered Isles is a medieval-themed fantasy world where vast oceans have separated Archai into five inhabited island regions. Four of the large islands represent each of the world's elements: Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. Located centrally is the fifth isle, New Archai--the melting pot of the world.

In Shattered Isles there are 16 different races from which to choose: one of four different Elven races severed by The Great Shattering, Dragons, Wyverns, Dwarves, Goblins, Gargoyles, Humans, a giant canine race known as Vukasins, faerie-like Sylphs, a giant humanoid race known as the Argali with horns much like a ram, giant Gavial lizards, and the Bolinau, a race of bipedal river creatures; think Otter meets Hobbit.

The player classes consist of Air-mages, Earth-mages, Fire-mages, Water-mages, Thieves, Assassins, Scouts, Barbarians, Warriors, Templars, and Priests.

The merchant system of Shattered Isles is a huge aspect of the world. All players regardless of class have the opportunity to learn most gathering skills and some basic crafting skills. Even more crafting skills are available to those who portray their character as a merchant and have paid proper dues to the Archai Trading Company. Player merchants may purchase shops for buying and selling goods and are entitled to custom orders throughout the year.

Role play is strictly enforced by a dedicated and available staff, while conflict and fighting between players is always encouraged! What you won't find in Shattered Isles are flashing colors, annoying Out Of Character channels that take away from the environment, having to track down your dead and looted body, or a MUD straight out of the box with nothing unique to offer. In Shattered Isles we've spent more time than we would like to admit focusing on the smallest of details. We take pride in providing a world in which you can truly immerse yourself.

Five things that will help you get started
  1. This is an in-character beta release. Even if you know nothing about the history of the game, you're expected to refrain from out of character conversation. We encourage new player to read about the different race, religion, and class choices at shattedisles.com before creating a new account.
  2. Religion is the central focus of the game. Your character's religion is the main faction they belong to. The majority of conflict in SI is centered around the 6 elemental religions.
  3. SI uses a skill tree system. No trainers. New skills are unlocked by advancing a related skill.
  4. We use a manual combat system. Each command must be entered.
  5. Creators and Designers (the game's staff) are recognizable by their exotic and unique races not available to players.

Shattered Isles is best enjoyed using the MUD clients MUSHclient or the Mudlet. See what plugins and tips players have added at shatteredisles.com/forums.
