Too bad there is no www.allgamegeek.com
Yeah, there is something I've been holding back from you guys. I'm pretty much crazy about all games, not just board games. There is a mud that I've been playing on for about 5 years now that due to unstable ownership and problems with actually being completely down for months at a time because of the unstable ownership has lost most of its player base. Thats where hopefully maybe some of you guys come in. If this isn't your thing, sorry for wasting your time, but I figured this group was the most likely group of people I knew that might want to have some other geeky style gaming outlets.
Basically its an extremely heavily modded diku mud base (although if you are familiar with diku muds you probably won't really recognize it from all the modding). The implementor is crazy about all things final fantasy, and many of the mechanics of the game borrow heavily from all the final fantasys throughout the years. There is basically always something new being implemented so things stay fresh and the best part (at least to someone like me) is it's totally free. Oh yeah, maybe here is where I should mention is that muds are text based role playing games played through the telnet protocol. So if pretty pictures are important, you might pass (I know we all like our bits).
Anyway, main point is, if you are interested, get a telnet client designed for muds like gmud or zmud and connect to Solar Eclipse at bb14.betterbox.net 4321. You can look for me on there under the name Moki (who sees who is online and tell moki hi tells me hi if I'm there). Just make some random character and then I can give you advice on how to get started including the original character creation. Anyway, hope this wasn't too off topic...my next post will be nice and on topicish. The picture is a screenshot of me destroying a pushover monster with a well timed monk combo.
