Re: Your first MUD?

None of these titles mean anything to me. I wish there were some screenshots or more information.

Re: Your first MUD?

My very first MUD was when I was about 14, and it was called Eaxia. I wish I could remember how I even stumbled upon the MUD or even know what it was... but I know I was ADDICTED, and have been ever since.

Re: Your first MUD?

My first mud was Dragon. I started playing in early '94 while it was still running under Aber IV code.

Re: Your first MUD?

Does Eaxia still exist?

My favorite mud was World of Inferno... wish it was still running or something similar at least.

Re: Your first MUD?

My first MUD was a GW mud back in 97 called Shadowgames. Still, to this day, GW-style MUDs are the flavor that I like to play.

Heh heh, GW, reminds me of GW Basic where no one new what the GW stood for and all the top programmers at the time agreed that it was short for "Gee Whiz!"

Re: Your first MUD?

My first MUD was Darkness Falls on AOL, which was freaking 3.99 or so per min! Then, Dragon's Gate, DragonRealms, the several random MUSHes and MUDs.

My first mud was darkness falls also on AoL. I still remember when my mom came home with a 200$ Aol bill, she freaked out lol. Those games were so addicting on aol, splatterball,magestorm, lok, etc..

Re: Your first MUD?

Mystic Realms RotMUD which later became Dark Haven, and I played that until it closed. I then moved onto playing on Waterdeep and then moved to Anime Planet which I eventually became the head builder of for close to a decade before deciding my time was better spent on my own MUD so I created Clockwork and am working on that.

Re: Your first MUD?

My first ever MUD was WoTMUD back in 2001. I had never thought anything existed out there that could take a book and make it come to life. I was hooked instantly and have been playing ever since. Ive tried alot of games listed on this site from the top 100 list ( and I mean like 20+ atleast) but none of them gave the same feeling as WoTMUD. One of the reasons I liked WoTMUD so much when I started was the easy directions. North, south, east, west, up, down. No south by southwest, in and out, or stumbling through multiple planes of existence. As a new mudder it was a big turn off if I couldn't find my way back to my starting point after only a few minutes of play.

Directions you can go are: N E S W Up Down In Out SE SW NE NW SSE SSW NNE NNW ESE WSW ENE WNW AQUATICA CELESTIAL and TERRA

Well technically, in a lot of MUDs, an exit name can be _anything_. Assuming you meant that these were standard exits used everywhere, that's scary.

We all have our lists of features that we were technically very pleased with, but when it came down to it just weren't that much fun or appealing to players.

Re: Your first MUD?

Can't believe I didn't post to this thread yet.

Its must have been late 1991 when my friends told me about these mud things that they warned me were very addictive. I didn't care. School bah! Hate it, why should I care.

So I logged into my dad's Uni shell account (I helped him to use it) and looked at this fabulous MUD list that I'd aquired somehow. FTP I guess. This was pre the stupid Web you know.

No idea why I picked it but it was called Darker Realms. Running at TAMU. That was part of the address which I had to type in every time so it stuck in my memory. I didn't stay long though. Some mean guys took me to an emote room and pretended to give me millions of gold. Even though this was my first time on a mud I realized what they were up to and what reaction they wanted to elicit. I did not reward them. I am not sure how many times I returned but I suspect it was only a few times.

Then I tried a mud closer to home, hoping to be a better netizen I guess. GateWay however is in Nova Scotia which is hardly any closer than Texas. Oh well it was lucky anyways since I still play there.

Re: Your first MUD?

Played a stock Diku for about 2 years called Crimson MUD II. Became an immortal at the tender age of 11, then left because the players were repetitively offensive. :P

After that, I moved around a bit until I found Accursed Lands, then Armageddon, and so on.

Holy crap, I've been at this for 14 years.

Nothing to frown about, I'm glad you are still hooked on text games. Roleplayer all the way, good on you!

Re: Your first MUD?

ArcticMUD was my first many, many years ago.

In fact, it's one of the few I've spent an exceptionally large amount of time in over the years... just doesn't seem to be many left that hook me the way it did.
