    Shadows of Isildur is the only other MUD I've played.  Tolkien fantasy theme based in Laketown with roleplaying required, I absolutely loved it.  Looking for a new, modern MUD with active staff and players, hopefully with lots of roleplay.  Hopefully Starmourn is it!

    I worked on SoI for a while. You are... patient.

    Hah, agreed progress was quite slow, and that is why I eventually stopped playing.  Still, the RP aspects and being willing to engage for weeks to slowly learn about the various PC's / activities going on made it worthwhile.  I'm definitely hoping for a more active, less cliqueish RP friendly experience here though.

    Thanks for your work on SoI!

    I worked on ToP for a couple of years, and while that was fun, I guess it's not technically playing.
    You lasted a lot longer than me - I gave up after about 2 weeks. My role there very much required decisions/approval before I could move on to the next thing, and that was really lacking.
    Were you a writer or coder?
    Writer I guess, although the deal was to be progging as well, later on?

    I was supposed to come up with concepts for areas, abilities and quests. I did some initial concept work for a newbie zone and quest line, had several long conversations on skill sets, and then worked out that it wouldn’t go anywhere quickly.

    Not my first rodeo, as they say, and it’s honestly really sad to see hard work from so many people go down the drain, so I’m glad I left as early as I did.

    Ah cool. And yeah, definitely sad to see but was a fun time in a lot of ways nonetheless. I'm glad IRE stuck with the sci fi idea even after that debacle.

    Tried a bunch but Lusty was the first and the only one that ever stuck

    I’ve played every IRE MUD. Started out with Achaea thanks to 13 or 14 year old me hearing Leo Laporte plug Achaea on TV. Having a shitty computer with dial up internet, it was a dream come true circa 03 or 04.

    Went from Achaea to Lusternia thanks to an in-game friend named Bauto, stayed in Lusternia while making the occasional alt in other games for multiple years. Recently have spent a decent stint in Aetolia, the best IRE currently has to offer. 

    Outside of IRE, dabbled in some random games as per MUDConnect, including things like RetroMUD, but IRE was the only one to ever stick.

    Aetolia, Imperian, Lusternia, Midkemia Online

    Played some non-Iron Realms MUDs too but never got super into them in the same way (hundreds of hours on each of the above ^) :)

    I actually got my start playing text-based roguelikes (mainly Angband, NetHack, and their variants) on my dad's computer when I was younger, and word-of-mouth in that community got me to make the jump to MUDs/MUSHes in 2008-ish.  I played Imperian and Lusternia irregularly until I stopped around 2012, because I was heading off to university.

    I'd actually completely forgotten about all of it until a few months ago when I fired up my old laptop and found my NetHack folder sitting on my desktop, and then one thing led to another and I've starting playing Imperian again, which is how I wound up here.

    If I don't accidentally try to engrave Elbereth from sheer muscle memory at least once in my Starmourn career, I'll be deeply surprised with myself. :pleased:

    I've played all the IRE MUDs, MKO included. Starmourn looks like something I'll be very interested and invested in. Pretty excited about it!

    Achaea here! Started in the early 2000s, took a break, and came back to play for another year before finally retiring.

    I've been in a sci fi mood as of late so I'm very excited to see what Starmourn has to offer!

    I have played many over the years with a MUD called Outer Space being my first. I have been playing Achaea for some time, although I have been mostly dormant lately due to not having a working computer and it is hard to do stuff mobile. I can't wait for Starmourn to launch. If it is anything like Achaea then I know i will enjoy it.

    Started mudding in 1999 and I've spent a lot of time on and enjoyed SWMud, Achaea, Aetolia, Valheru and Legends of Karinth.

    I've played quite a few over the last 25 years. 

    I can't remember my first, but I've played Avalon, Ardwolf, Gemstone, Dragonrealms, Dragon's Gate, Achaea, Modus Operandi, and several others that I can't even recall. I've always found MUDs have the potential to be far more complex and immersive than the majority of games I've played
    Thumbs up for MO.

    Achaea gave me my introduction to the MUD/MOO/text based games at the ripe old age of ten. I played at the local library computers every scrap of time that I could find. I was in love. I've been looking forward to this since I heard about Tears of Polaris. Haha. Since then I've played quite a few. All of the IRE games, Iceus a little, Avalon, Sindome currently, Aardwolf. I guess some of those aren't MUDs, oh well.  O.o B)

    Achaea, back in 2007 from an online friend (whom I've lost touch with since). I've tried to play a couple of others, but Achaea was pretty much the best one that I continuously played.

    Same time I started playing and introduced someone to.. 🤨 Achaea for me as well.🤔

    Mainly Aetolia, for me! It was my first MUD 12 or so years ago and still going strong. Outside of it, I have dabbled in mostly other IRE games (Achaea and Lusternia mostly).

    I started in Avalon many, many moons ago. (I saw a few of you played there off an on, I was Lukien btw!) From there I went to Aetolia and have happily resided there ever since!

    Here's my first post to these forums, thought this is a good topic to start with. 

    I first started playing MUDs....18 years ago now I think, stumbled across them when I was looking up things related to the Wheel of Time series that I was reading at the time, and incidentally played the WoT mud for a while. Found out there were more MUDs out there! Dabbled in other IRE games, Lusternia and Imperian but been playing Achaea for perhaps 17 years on and off.

    Midkemia Online, Dragonball Advent-Truth, Lusternia and Ring of Power (don’t judge me) have all held my attention at some point. I briefly tried Achaea but I really didn’t like it. 90% of my MUD time overall over the years was MKO.

    Every time I read a comment like this, my mind short-circuits and I stare blankly into space for a second. Has it really been that long? :scream:

    Yes, Achaea had its 21st birthday in September!
