Talking New to Muds so built a site

Hi I'm new to muds and want to find the best muds out there to play that are active, mature and fun so I have started a site called Top Mud Sites - MUD and RPG Rankings - Mud Database, RPG & MUD Forums, MUD Articles, MUD Reviews

I have created a list of muds I like to try out for a month each and blog my experience and write a review on each of them.

Would be great to get your recommendations on muds to try. I'm also lookong for someone to group with on a regular basis.

Also what muds should I try 1st?

My suggestion is that you start with the first on the rankings, i.e. Aardwolf, then Achaea etc…

Very cool idea, by the way.

My suggestion would be to start with the second page of the ranking instead.

There are several not so well known muds worthy of some attention.
And it would be more interesting for most of us to read about some of those too.

Seconded!

There's a lot of gems buried beneath the MUDs with an already well established playerbase and/or advertising budget.

Of course, the further from the top you go, the fewer players you'll run into, but that's really a catch-22... you need players to get players.

Oh well, I guess they are right. I did not want to sound too institutional. Battletech, Frontier Lands, is awesome for example as many others.

Re: New to Muds so built a site

Great idea. I look forward to reading your reviews of the MUDS. I just wanted to add that some MUDs that are lower on the list do have big player bases such as Medievia; they just don't get their players as active in voting. If you want to have company visiting the different MUDS, I would join up, especially on Tuesday evenings for an hour or so. Again, great idea, and I look forward to reading your reviews.

Re: New to Muds so built a site

sounds like an amazing idea, may I also suggest you post when you're about to try out a new mud, that way we can all see what it is like together

Here's my recommended list and why:

Roleplay Enforced:
http://www.ateraan.com/

Journey Beyond the Threshold!

These are the two best Roleplay Enforced games out there with good player bases and storyline.

Player vs. Player:
God Wars II - Welcome to God Wars II

Arguably the best developed PVP game.

Hack and Slash:
Text Adventure Game RPG | Materia Magica RPG
http://www.achaea.com/signup/one

Both of these options have nice mapping systems and good staff

Quest and thought Driven:
4Dimensions | the online multiplayer text-based RPG

Probably the most unique and fun quest game out there.

---
Best of Luck!
