Good MU with sense of progression



  • Title says it all, just got done trying and really liked it but things there are a bit strict for me (i like to have a community, something which they actively discourage there from what i could gather, also no ooc chan to let the other person lnow if i'm having trouble with a newbie thing, ect.)

    I did like the whole 'pick yourself up by the bootstraps and make something of yourself' aspect though, so if anyone has reccomendations for something like that just with more of an ooc presence, please let me know <3

    Hi, Sarah.

    I think we may need more information. What sort of game did you depart from? What are you looking for in a game, besides a sense of progression?

    The MU-niverse is diverse.



  • @Sarah I also must know where you left from, as I am a needy bitch obsessed with drama.



  • Sorry guys, it was a hell of a month. I left from Sindome actually, mostly because as I said they discourage any and all ooc communication and so I was completely on my own for figuring out basic survival mechanics.

    Anyways aside from a sense of progression?/i guess medieval? Lord and Ladies games where I can /do/ things, etc.



  • @Sarah If you like Cyberpunk, there is always Cybersphere. (The game Sindome branched off of.) There's OOC channels and OOC communication is not discouraged, only meta-gaming. (Plus the code is better than Sindome, but I hear the RP is slightly worse.)

    So most MUSHes are really designed for a tabletop RPG writ large feel, that's very character relationship driven with GMs often telling stories or maintaining plot, but they generally don't have the kinds of game mechanics you'd see on a Sindome or HellMOO or Armageddon that has a player versus environment feel, that could give you the kind of sensation of progression.

    I'm adding some of that to my game over time for what you might be thinking of, but it's still really downplayed, because games that are MUD-MUSH type hybrids are deciding where their focus is on creating an environment that can act as RP prompts for players and let them develop things on their own, versus a collaborative storytelling experience where the focus is really on letting those players drive stories without an environment possibly getting in the way. I like to try to combine the two and want to keep adding in more environmental features on Arx, but they are still noticeably different styles of RP.
