Re: Primordiax - Graphical/Text Hybrid MUD & MMO

Having been playing this now since it went live (a few months) I can safely say this is a fabulous entry into the MUD market, and one of the few muds I have played in the last 3 years that has managed to retain my interest. As a casual player it appeals for several reasons

1) A great (tunable for those who want immersaion) OOC channel that uses your account name instead of your character name so you can retain a complete distance from OOC chatter and your character.

2) Incredibly Casual friendly, with a very relaxed and receptive-to-ideas-and-feedback development team and a great player base that after only a few hours, will make you feel you have known them for years

3) A superb clothing machine that allows you to create ANY item of clothing, which can be on, over, viewable if covered, coloured etc.. literally if you want to create a hidden suspender belt that cannot be seen under your pants (male MUD players can be strange folk XD ), or a surcoat that sits over your armour and partially hides whatever is on your chest and upper legs.. you can do it. Allows you to have a character looking just how you want

4) A great crafting system (first I have really enjoyed), and some the most fabuously designed weapons I have seen described in a text based game. Currently you can be a weapons crafter, armoursmith or Chef!

5) A fantastic skills system (a bugger to get your head round initially, but fantastic when you get it) that again allows you to create that character you always wanted.

6) A great feeling of 'making things happen' as players are pretty much expected to help raise the technological level of the world during RP events. When you play and use the market's in the cities, remeber to thank those players who built them

7) A great flash client that allows anyone to get started with MUD's, with lots of nifty ideas such as group health / magic power boxes for those party combat sessions. However CMUD, ZMUD, iPhone clients all work nicely!

8) Superbly written areas and descriptions, laid out so beautifully its like reading an ebook, with just enough colour to enhance as opposed to frantically looking for the ANSI COLOUR OFF switch!

9) Completely persistant gear between logins and reboots.

Already there are some great Role Players in the game, and with three unique and imaginitive cities, lots of places to explore. And with players from all time zones, if you need any in game info, dont be afraid to ask on the chat channel, no subject is taboo.

Login now and see the new world of Primordiax, a game for MUD'ders and also MMO fans who want to try something new, but dont forget to clean off the void taint from anything you gather. My Chemerite chracters dont take kindly to tainted resources!

See you in game!

Re: Primordiax - Graphical/Text Hybrid MUD & MMO

We have made a number of improvements to the new character tutorial and the early level zones and tasks. We hope this makes it even easier to get started.

Guilds are also now able to "level up" by contributing resources. Among other things, this allows them to unlock a chat channel.

Have fun!

Still looking for players to help the 3 cities grow after the devastation caused by the Void Taint.

We are looking for early adopters who love helping the world progress!

For those most interested in lore, we're also looking for people who want to discover world lore and build onto our wiki. Please check out Wikimalia.

Re: Primordiax - Graphical/Text Hybrid MUD & MMO

We've had excellent turn outs in our latest RPTs.

Primrodiax had a major upheaval resulting in a consolidation of our extremely large world. Now players are looking for others to help them immigrate back to the lands of their choice. They're looking to recruit the following:
  • Armorer: Leather Specialist
  • Cook: Fish Dish Specialist
  • Herbalist: Herb Gatherers
  • Skinner: Looking for Torn skins

Soon to come:
  • Alchemists
  • Tinkers
  • Druids

Please stop by to check in on us if you've already made a character. Your character may have some interesting decisions to make depending on where they created.

Thanks!

This is a simple thread where I thought we could share ideas for making sure we all enjoy the game, and make newbies welcome without necessarily having to be uber nice to them IC.

Primordiax does tend to work differently that other muds in that the player economy, even though small is absolutly critcal. Anyhow, let me start with some perhaps obvious ideas about economics and how they can apply to this game.

1) Making items that are now grey? Resist the tempation to churn them out in record time. Why not put out a guild broadcast for new crafters to come and do the work for you? They gain xp,and you can let them keep a small % as reward. You save time, they get experience and a few ingrediants as well to use and make more money out of. You first online employee, and no need to give them holiday pay! I have done this several times, and it makes for good working relationships and a feeling of personal satisfaction.. and saves all that borning rubbish.

2) Healer who help crafters do not take damage.. so even that newbie healer maybe of great use. Resist the temptation to do it alone.. even one mend during crafting may shave 20-30 seconds off your recovery time, and then slip them a handful of coins for each item they help produce.

3) Employ miners! Provide the wood for mines, and get a good, set price for the ore (which you cleanse) and send them on their way. You cut out the market fee's, get a nice flow of ore, and save a little bit per batch.

Re: Primordiax - Graphical/Text Hybrid MUD & MMO

I know it says free to play forever, but I'm still curious on if it'll be 'commercial' like Threshold. Where you have the ability to purchase in game currency, or something similar...

It is a commercial, pay for perks mud. Everything that can be bought can also be traded to players who either do not wish to pay for perks or cannot pay for perks.

Hope that helps!

Pressing news: (Reposted from Primordiax's forums with permission)

Quote:
The city of Askagard suffered great losses on this day, 18th Hoerfest Year 6, and sadly this was not caused by the dreaded void. A trulloc, who will remain unnamed, was possessed and had to be forcefully put down by several members of the adventurers and scribes guild.

Please spare a thought when you have a quiet toll to remember those innocents whos blood still stains our streets, the Town Crier who gave his life in defense of innocents in the tavern, and those members of the guilds who perished attempting to save others.

With regards to the Trulloc, who is blessed and is now amongst us again, he has no memory of the event, though he does know what led to it, and can be trusted to avoid such a path again and will make full reparations for his deeds.

Please understand that since all mortals are fallible and flawed this goal is an aspirational ideal.

May Stratos grant you all the power to show mercy for his actions

Trianto, Paladin of Stratos

Re: Primordiax - Graphical/Text Hybrid MUD & MMO

I tried this awhile back but got distracted by life (how rude of life to interupt my MUDing experiences!!!) but I found it again today. I am having a BLAST here on Primordiax even with no one else online *sigh* But I would surely love some company! This game is great!!! And especially this little tid bit which I wasn't sure of given the shere quality of the game that you do not typically see in Free Games these days:

Free to play forever.

WOO HOO!!!!

I believe they went back into beta to iron out some issues, and they've gone quiet since then. No doubt they'll start promoting again once they officially reopen, and their playerbase should start to pick up.

That doesn't seem so surprising, to be honest. I've seen a few pay-to-play muds change to the pay-for-perks (aka free-to-play) model, but I've never seen one go the other direction. The few remaining pay-to-play text muds seem to be having serious trouble holding onto their playerbase, and even many of the graphical muds are now switching to pay-for-perks.

Re: Primordiax - Graphical/Text Hybrid MUD & MMO

I really like this game too. But like another poster said, its really empty. Well it was when I played months ago. I played a crafter and it seemed hard to get started without any one else online. I'll definitely stop in again to see what's going on.

Still pretty empty so far. I love how the crafting works so far but yes it is near impossible to do much as one as far as I can tell right now. So, I made a beserker to see if I can help the crafters (and my other character) with the auction house thing, hopefully selling goods there for crafters but I don't know how that works either without other players to use it. I will try to find out though!
