The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Baine] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.

I started playing this MUD a few months ago off and on. Lately, I've been 
playing it non-stop. 

Before I go into much more detail here, let me say I am still very much a
newbie to this game. My review is from a new player perspective and not
that of an experienced veteran. However, I have been playing, developing
and managing MUD's since the late 90's. So, I've been around the block in
the community and back a few times. 

When I first started playing the game, the community and staff welcomed
me into open arms. Everyone was extremely friendly, there was a diverse
set of RP characters and the game felt robust. As I type this, there is 
about 50 players on with 5 staff visible. It's very healthy and active. 

I played primarily a criminal character that robs other players. Generic
for some, but they support it. Both nobles and criminals are supported 
and the game encourages all types of RP. I really enjoyed that about the
game and got hooked because of the possibilities I could do. 

Unfortunately, the new feel kind of wore off when I sort of rubbed a 
staff member the wrong way. I feel this happened because I was a bit
to needy from the staff when trying to learn the game. In summary,
I was always poking them and talking with them about the game
because generally, I was pretty excited about playing and learning as
much as I could. 

To make a long story short, I had a player complain about a PvP
scene I was in. They said I left to early before giving them
enough time to react. The staff investigated this issue, saw the
logs and told me that I should be fine. But, it would not be
official until the IMP reviews the logs and makes the call. 

During that investigation, I found the staff member to be very rude. 
She obviously held some type of grudge with me and was not helpful at
all. She told me I was being investigated, yet was getting spammed by
other players to fully talk to me about the situation. This made her
very short with me and made me feel like she really just didn't care. 

The conversation ended with me getting super frustrated with the
staff member where I vented a little more than I should. I feel
this only happened because of how short the staff member was to
start even though I tried to supply her with all the information
she needed to fulfill her request. 

At the end of the day, I really do like the game. But issues like this
make it so much harder to play the game too.

Here is a follow-up to the previous review. The information before
is not in result of my previous review. Just a follow-up on what
happened in the issue I was facing with the staff and how
they handled the situation with me specifically.

The owner of the MUD contacted me about two topics. The first
topic was on how I handled that PvP situation. The owner
reviewed over the logs and told me I handled the situation
good and that I had nothing to worry about in that regards.

The next topic was on how the conversation between the other staff
member and myself went. It obviously went bad and the owner gave
her weigh in on what happened.

The verdict was that she say no issues with how the staff member
handled the conversation (the investigation) and I should re-frame
from treating staff the way I did in the future.

At this point, I feel that I need to express my reasons on why I took
the approach I did and why I feel concerned on how the previous
staff member handled the situation.

This went on, back-and-forth a couple more times in a very civil manner
on both parts. I expressed my concern, the owner expressed why she
disagrees and why it does not matter. Case is closed, move on please.

The last correspondence from the owner was that everything was final.
Any future messages on this topic would be futile and likely result
in some type of action against me due to harassment.

So, I knew the next message would likely result in some type of
punishment. I went for it anyways.

In the end, I got wiped and IP-Banned. This is all because the owner has
made up her mind and nothing else matters, especially the concerns of
the players.

This seems pretty common among the other reviews. The staff are pretty set
on what they want and that's the end. Any future attempts result in the system
shutting down much like it shut down in this situation. It's their way
or the highway ideally.

So, this is Baine signing off. It was a real pleasure RP'ing with everyone.
Again, the game and staff for the most part are great. It's just went push
comes to shove in more complicated situations that have been ruled on,
they shut down and step on you like puny little ant.

Such a shame.
