mackm8691 is on a distinguished road
Looking without Luck

Hey there everyone,
I'll quickly introduce myself. I go by Mack, and I've been playing several muds for a long time. If anyone is interested, then I can tell them which muds I play. I signed up for TMS recently, in hopes of finding a new mud or two to play.

The main reason I'm making this thread, is to help me track down a mud similar to one of my old favorites which is now offline. It was called "Akanbar". It went down some time ago maybe 3 or 4 years. Before it went down, there were some problems with the code and the time system in the mud became very broken. I'm assuming the game was taken down because of that. The administration wont respond to my emails, and the forum page on the akanbar website is up but no one is responsive.

I'm trying to find a new mud to play that's somewhat like Akanbar. So I'll list a few things that I liked about Akanbar, and maybe you nice folks know of a mud you could recommend.

Roleplay Enforced
World Wide PK
Player Ran Cities
RACELESS character creation
Balance styled combat system(takes balance to attack)
Player Crafting

Re: Looking without Luck

I've played several muds over years so I wanted to help accordingly to your requirements;

Gemstone 4:

Roleplay Enforced? *Yes

World Wide PK? *No

Player Ran Cities? Kinda yes. Mayors are elected in major cities. Need to rp your way. You can keep in touch with Game Masters for plots/storylines if you become a mayor.

RACELESS character creation? *No. There are races with advantages and disadvantages

Balance styled combat system(takes balance to attack)? * Yes, absolutely

Player Crafting? * Yes. There are crafting skills like alchemy, illusions, forging, cobbling, sheath making etc.

Game is free to play but you probably might need to go pay to play after level 20 or so. First 20 levels you can play as a f2p. You can continue with f2p but experience is gained much slower if you're a f2p. Playerbase is equal in terms of competition, most of them are p2p(monthly subscription). Playerbase is huge btw. During pandemic it went over 1k online players a few times.


In fact, I think you'll hardly find any mud that allows world wide PK. I can suggest Duris mud for that. It has no safe room and it is a full loot PK oriented game but it unfortunately has not a big playerbase and doesn't enforce rp.
