Hello. After getting bored of another less popular MUD, I'm thinking about returning after a strong 4-5 year absence. But not before I ask a couple of questions first...

Are there any major changes I should know about besides the new classes Blademaster and Alchemist? Are House Icons still around?

I'm interested in both the Monk and Blademaster classes and I am leaning towards either Troll or Rajamala. I won't be buying many (if any) credits but I am still interested in PvP. Is there anything in particular I should know about how each build will affect bashing or any other source of gold? How steep is the learning curve as a Blademaster?

    In response to a few questions about the last 3-4 years:
    Delphinus said:
    - The Blademaster class was introduced.
    - The Alchemist class was introduced, providing a non-forestal source of healing items. Forestal classes can only join Eleusis now, and alchemists can join any city but Eleusis.
    - Praying for salvation no longer costs additional XP.
    - Racial stats, bonuses, and penalties were overhauled. They've been largely replaced by a combination of racial specialisations (stat builds) and traits (perks/feats you can take every ten levels).
    - Theft via the force-command system has been removed. In its place, Serpents are now able to pickpocket gold and certain items from a person's inventory. This can also be done on NPCs.
    - Aligned classes are more closely aligned. Necromancers, forestals, devout, and occultists have all largely been pulled from cities that oppose them.
    - All of Sapience has been revealed, as well as most of the continent of Meropis. (See here)
    - More recently, simplified PK (PK with RP justification) replaced the old PK-cause system.

    Thanks, I remember you. Also awesome map.

    Another question though...Are strength based monk builds still popular or other builds, such as int, viable?

    Int monks are quite popular right now

    To be fair though, strength based monks never go out of style.
    PM me if you want to playtest a MUD.

    Mhaldor now has a slightly different Theocracy. Ashaxei is dead. Sailing is now a thing. Islands exist far far across the waves.
