Gamer Blind Profoundly From Gaming Computer Video
I thought I'd talk tonight about my experiences with muds. Now I'm sure that lots of you are familiar with what muds are but for those of you who aren't, please allow me to give you a brief explanation of what muds actually are. Muds, standing for multi user dungeons, or if you prefer, a more modern term, multi user dimentions, are literally hundreds if not thousands of rooms all put together in a text based virtual world. These rooms can be any sort of environment the writer can imagine and can include shops, outdoor areas such as towns cities and villages and even underground areas such as caves and yes, even dungeons. A mud can basically be thought of as a living breathing book that you live in when you create a character and take an active roll in that particular world. Muds can also be created in any sort of setting too, such as a futuristic world complete with starships space stations and whole planets and worlds to explore and colonize, or even a medieval setting with swords and sorcery and high fantasy, or even a modern day world if you so choose. Muds are lots of fun for those of us who are profoundly blind since we can't just go into the same kinds of virtual worlds that our sighted counterparts are able to at will such as second life, planet calypso and Star citizen Etc. I say muds are fun but only if they're well written. I can't tell you the number of muds I've seen that were downright horrible and poorly written. I mean you could tell just by reading the stuff that the developers simply threw these things together in a month or so, not really thinking anything through and throwing in things from other worlds to flesh it out, but not really making the world eunique and different from all of the other hundreds of muds out there. On the flip side of that coin however, I've seen some absolutely wonderful muds that were not only well written, but you could also tell that the writers really took the time to think about what they wanted their world to look and feel like, and what sort of setting that they wanted for their world. So the take home message for this post is that muds are loads of fun if they're well written, so look for ones that are very well written and have been around awhile. This may take some trial and error on your part to sort out the excellent from the horrible, but after you've done that you'll find yourself several worlds that you can't wait to dive into and really build yourself a good strong character. Have a wonderful day to you all, and I look forward to hearing your responses.
Rather off topic, but...
