DikuMUD Nilgiri, the Forgotten World
My name is Zagarna and I am a high level mortal and I have been playing this mud for about four years and this is what I have got to say about it: The strength of the mud is based on how many people play in it. Currently, there isn't as much people as there used to be, but I still think it is a fun place to hang around in. I believe that generally, the people in this mud are quite friendly so most of the time, newbies won't feel so left out. If you are a newbie and you have a question, feel free to send a tell to one of the high levels who are online (If you don't know who the high levels are, anybody with a clan title indicator should know the answer to a question you are asking). However, try not to get too annoying or else they might ignore you. There is a wide variety of people in this mud. Some of them prefer to stay very quiet while others like to talk a lot. Haruon and Jazmin (for example) are very social players, so these are the types of people you might want to ask help from. Other players like buffy Glowboy and Snoop tend to mind their own business and kill mobs to level. Players like these don't talk a lot, but they do leave a good trail of corpses :) There are also clans that you can join once you become strong and dedicated enough to this mud. There is the Friendly Clan (which specializes in helping newbies and being friendly), the Godetan Clan (full of elite warriors), the Order Clan (attempts to bring order), and many many other clans that you can join. Each clan has their own rules and members often automatically unite together to form a longlasting friendship. There are also Nobles in this mud whose purpose is to preserve the realm. The most interesting thing to do in this place is probably to explore. Explore, explore, explore! Don't get discouraged when you die, and hopefully you will learn from the mistakes you made. However, it is difficult to find anything else to do after you have explored the whole realm, maybe except for leveling and waiting for quests. Quests are run by immortals. Yes, there are immortals in this mud. Their job is to create areas, socialize and to look for improvements. However, try not to annoy them too much because they could horrible things to you. There are also different races and different classes with different skills that you can select from. Each race and class has their own advantages and disadvantages, and I'm not too sured whether they are balanced or not. Well, overall, I think this mud is a very interesting place to hang around in and I have to admit that it can get very addictive sometimes. Currently, some people are not playing this mud because the changes are happening way too fast for them to be able to adapt to (mortals believe some of the changes are far too unacceptable to them such as exp cap, marshal law, etc). But being able to adapt so well to change is one of the few qualities very few mortals possess in this realm. And yeah, that's it.
