|Elysium - MUD Description|
|Elysium boasts nine player-run cities, spread out across three continents. Each city is ruled over by an emperor who appoints a cabinet of five ministers including:
The Minister of State: Allocates money to the various Ministries’ treasuries and for building industries outside the city walls.
The Minister of Justice: Ensures the citizens and foreigners do not break the law within the city walls, and for managing the city police force.
The Minister of War: Decides the diplomatic status of the city, and is responsible for keeping the army and navy in a position where the city can be defended against invasion by another city.
The Minister of the Unknown: Conducts research in the city, which when fully completed, provides benefits to their city.
Elysium is a player-killing MUD, with a dozen or so guilds offering the chance to learn skills to help them in their ambitions. Over four hundred unique abilities spread across two-dozen skill sets are available for a player to learn. Skills range from Forging, the ability to craft weapons and armour to Demonology, the ability to summon up horrific demons from Hades to fight on your side.
Gods within Elysium, each with his or her own religious Order offer players the opportunity and associate themselves with people of like minds.
Cities can construct player run industries and the commodities they produce can then be traded between individuals or cities. The owner of an ore mine could take iron ore and sell it to a player who owns a refinery, who can produce iron ingots from the ore. Those iron ingots can be sold to a player with the Forging skill, who can in turn make longswords from those iron ingots.
If a city likes the look of a nearby industry outside its lands, it can summon up armies of troops ranging from knights to pikemen. Citizens can hold a military rank, which determines the power they have over a city's troops.
As Elysium is spread over three continents, cities near the coast have constructed harbours to enable them to build ships. Players can own fast, lightly armoured ships such as clippers, or might warships such as the Man o War!
Players may set up a shop, which can be used to sell herbs, weaponry, armour, magical items, or even clothing and jewellery.
If you're interested in hunting or questing, Elysium caters for this with areas dedicated to such sport, and over a hundred coded puzzles for you to solve!
