Newbie, looking for a mud with deep crafting

Ok, so I'm pretty new to muds. I've only really sampled muds, like Dartmud and NWA. And both those games are excellent, but I'm looking for a little bit more leniency on RP. Since I'm new to muds I'd like to be able to practice rping at my leisure. Atm I'm terrible at rp, I'm not really quick witted or good with emotes. I think I just need time to get better. Now, onto what I'm looking for in a mud.
  • Deep crafting system, would like skills like Alchemy, Tailoring, Farming, etc.
  • Not RPI or RPE or whatever you call it. Like I said, I really want to practice for awhile.
  • Not class-based ( this isn't exactly a requirement, but if it's not in-game, atleast need the ability to multi-class )
  • Moderatly simple gameplay, aside from crafting of course.
Maybe these reqs are a bit of a stretch, but I really don't know what muds are out there.

Thanks in advance

-Aka

Re: Newbie, looking for a mud with deep crafting

Hey Akazukin,

Looks like both those muds are LP Muds, so I'm not sure if ours would be right up your alley, but we do have a crafting system and are multi-classed. We're a heavily modified Ack!Mud.

I'm not sure if you're greatly interested in RP, or if you are looking to get away from it -- we're a bit more of a community, so people tend to chat a lot OOC about jobs, life, games, etc. Not a big focus on RP.

Bullet points to not produce a wall of text

Crafting (not sure if this is considered "deep", though...)
  • 4 gathering types, nodes are scattered throughout world into 3 tiers (+1 rare type) based on terrain
  • 8 professions
  • ~30 recipes unique to each profession, with 5 special recipes found through world drops.
  • Interdependence among professions: one's primary good is another's secondary good, and their top-tier craftables require the assistance of others.
  • Unique profession skills like sunder (warmasters can try to reduce crafted items into their base goods) and reinforce (armoursmiths can use base goods to create item enhancements)
  • Passive combat abilities based on your profession

As for multiclass...
  • All players get the 5 base mortal classes (Mage, Cleric, Thief, Psionicist, Warrior)
  • You can choose 2 of 5 remort classes (cumulative levels, not restarting 1)
  • Choose 2 of 6 realm classes, then 1 of 2 legend classes per realm
MUD's called "StormHunters" and is at sh.ackmud.net 7000... feel free to drop by

You might try a game with the coffeemud codebase. They tend to have dozens and dozens of different crafting skills and an easy ability to multiclass with characters. While not my personal favorite, it's definitely a fresh and interesting take on crafting with a lot of variety.

I just checked out the generator site in your sig. The "Fertility Utility" is the best thing since sliced kalan fruit.
