The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Grishnakh]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
I can confidently as this is one of the best MUDs out
there today. On their Forums, the best quote to sum this game up is by
'The great power of Arm[amgeddon] isn't in the stories
we intend to make, but in the ones we could never have
But, like all games, it has its downsides. One of the
things I really have against it is how the staff members
wanted to build a gritty, harsh desert world. A place
of hardship, starvation, murder, betrayal, racism,
amongst many words for it. Racism, in the game, obvious
is between species (i.e. Humans hate Elves). People
don't play racists in this game often enough (racism
is the cultural norm IG). And everyone tends to be
nice to each other.
Now, I can understand, in some instances, you can't
be rude. That man you're scowling at could know some
powerful Templar (a term for an all-powerful person
who could kill you on a whim). But it's not always the
case. Clans often accept other races (humans are the majority),
even Elves, oddly enough. Elves in this game,
can't ride mounts, making it very tricky to get
around. It seemed to me that they'd be a liability to a clan.
One quick thing I'd like to mention is that the game has a
degree of elitism, (in the forums). So, although people won't
visibly exclude you, don't expect to make many friends.
Lastly, what I don't like, but it's tolerable about is
sexual orientation. People are really careful in the game
to not set on toes and offend people IRL. It's bull, I think.
Sexual orientation in a world like this is important. People
would be discriminated against in this sense. In a world as
harsh as 'Zalanthas', reproduction is important to survive.
And that'd all it take for discrimination.
So, with those words spoken, and despite my complaints, I'll
be sticking around with Armageddon, it's a great game.
And I'd recommend it to anyone who seriously wants to roleplay
and have fun.
