Exclamation Massively.com MUD coverage

Might be worth taking advantage of this opportunity for a MUD spotlight this month over at a site normally reserved for coverage of the big MMORPGs!

I saw the link earlier from MBDN, and even shared the link to my tell-all since there was a solicitation of stories. That said, I don't think that this is any more insightful than your typical 'oh, muds used to be cool' article. I would -love- to see a site like i09 feature still-strong MUDs, talk about their advantages, and so on. Unfortunately, it isn't so easy to draw attention the MUDs anymore, and the token article is often the best we can get.

No, this article isn't insightful by itself, but it's just an introduction. The author is going to write more later this month, which is why I suggest people get their voices heard. Make some noise and maybe other sites *will* pick up the story. Worth a try.

Certainly is. The author misses many points but it is a crack in the door to be sure.

Cool Re: Massively.com MUD coverage

Another Massively write-up, this time with specific mentions about several games, including TorilMUD, Realms of Despair, 3Kingdoms, and Gemstone. Give it a read: The Game Archaeologist plays with MUDs: The games | Massively

And the love for MUDs continues at Massively.com! The Game Archaeologist plays with MUDs: Your journeys, part 1 | Massively

Apparently, they're devoting space next week to lots of MUD player stories. Exciting!
