I've recently come back to Achaea, but after spending some time in realms, I've rediscovered the reason why I left in the first place: Non-serpent Houses SUCK for Serpents.
While Cyrene was okay when I was a BM and I wanted to be a casual player without really doing anything, I want to get into, you know, actual Serpenty stuff now. Stealing, spying, killing, etc. Which isn't very Cyrenian (and definitely not very Mojushain). And I've been having trouble learning on my own, though it should be easier now that illusions are apparently getting phased out.
Long story short, I'd like to know what are the better Serpent Houses out there these days. Ones where I can actually learn how to be a proper Serpent. I don't really care which city I end up in, none are too bad (though I did try a Naga on alt once and geeeez, was it hard to get used to Mhaldor. I was so freakin intimidated, and everything so quiet and unnerving...), as long as I'm actually going to learn some things.
Diving right into high-level combat might be a problem, because I'm currently specced to Con (14 con, 12 dex Mhun) without a reincarnation. This was mostly because I was hunting instead of doing combat when I left, but as I understand, dex is pretty important. I still want to learn to do as well as I can against other adventurers, as well as develop other Serpent-related skills.
So, which of you Serpent Houses would be a good home for me?
