Where has everyone gone?!

Some of you have wondered where people are hiding out now that ROM's demise is painfully clear and near. Last year I found a really good mud and a couple months ago I asked the imp (Matrim) to post an invitation for ROM players to go to his mud and check it out.

For those of you who haven't been on for a while, I decided to copy/paste his invitation. A majority of the ROM regulars have made the transition to the new mud already, and here's hoping that the rest of you will follow...

[182] Jaeric: You are invited

To: all

Normally this (mudvertising) would be a bad thing, but considering the circumstances and the fact that I have Kroz's permission, I am extending an invitation.

The address is: matmud.game-host.org 4000

We are a ROM-based mud that has been heavily developed for 4 years. Highlights include a broad range of random items ala Diablo, an open-ended skill system where you may build your own class, near endless development by spending experience on stat perks, and persistent NPC quests that give everyone a variety of goals to accomplish.

The mud isn't finished but still has more for players to do than most finished products. We're still improving and updating things reguarly and seek the input of interested players to help guide the progress.

This won't fit everyone. It's more like a computer RPG than a mud. The game itself is more complicated than it needs to be, but we are friendly and enjoy helping new players get into the game. A number of things are in place to ensure the complexity doesn't spoil the fun if given a chance.

Everyone is welcome to stop by. You can drop a tell to me under the name Matrim. If available, I'm happy to discuss the game. I am also s rry for the departure of ROM and wish the timing and situation were better. But those of you looking for a new home should find our casual and friendly environment worth your time if the game itself appeals.

I've written a newbie guide to help with http://projectbob.myfreeforum.org/sutra1965.php#196

- Matrim

I hope to see you there!

P.S. The 'regulars' that play there are myself, Foxtail, Faltos/Roman, Gunther, Vinc/Garett, Longstrom, Dynaplex, Petter, Bethie, Morgon, Hexed/Helix, Nayrd and a few more. I didn't know if they wanted me to say who their character names are there, so you'll have to figure that out for yourself. ;)
