Well... I gave this MUD a go, and as best I can figure... when I logged in it was script night, or a Bot gathering. Information is limited, all the 'locals' that were listed as active on the list when encountered would reply with the same lines of text regardless of it being a question, a statement, or just trying to start idle conversation.
Seeking information and assistance is like pulling teeth with a soggy toothpick, it can be done, but not without hours and hours of digging only to find minimal gains, or even what a person is looking for.
Two thumbs up for zombie players, script runners, and Bots.
