Fourteen (14) years of active development. Administered by professional software developers and published authors. This mud has a complex, detailed and sprawling world. This is a player-centric mud supported by innovative and interesting economic, legal and ecological systems. Players run guilds, players operate stores, players set prices, and players build structures throughout the world.
That said, it is a challenging mud. It's tough at the bottom as a newbie because this mud has unique and complicated game play; established players won't just roll over and give up their turf (or cash!). Its also tough at the top with Lords and Guild Leaders responsible for administrative and legal decisions which maybe unpopular with lesser players. This encourages an active and participative society. If you take the time and effort to learn the mud you'll find it unique and engrossing. Many of our 'hard core' players have been active for over five years.
There are many ways to 'play'; it's not a killfest, we strongly encourage role players and a responsible community. But it's also a tough simulation; so the traditional 'warrior' adventurer will find plenty to fulfill them. You'll find 9 innovative races, 11 guilds, 32 quests, like you've never seen before. Tough adventuring, big fantasy world, friends and foes. Take the time to know Shattered
World and you'll be richly rewarded!
