This is a Rom based mud with several features to set it above the rest, including but not limited to:
- multi classing (true d&d style) - ships (player owned and operated) - a living economy (affected by almost everything) - extended immortal functions (for running in game quests and such) - weapon specialization for fighters. - elemental specialization for wizards. - mages learn spells from scrolls, and can scribe them to teach other mages. - traps, trap detection, etc… - and many many other features not unlike Ad&D 2nd ed. - many expansions for OLC to give new areas more flavor. (oprogs, new sectors, new flags (for objs/rooms). - complete removal of stock areas. We're in the process of rebuilding our world from scratch.
Features planned in the future:
- caravans which take goods from one city to another, which can at times be ambushed. - new combat system, initiative based, involving weapon speeds, etc… - 'instanced' dragons, with smart AI who can devastate towns and then run to hide in their lair. - resource gathering: foraging, mining, etc.. - crafting, such as farming, cooking, alchemy, etc… these will be another staple of the mudwide economy. - and much much more. - skill trees based on skill prerequisites and stat requirements.
