    I was an illithid killer!

    I mained Theras the barbarian warrior and then Ixath the thri-kreen warrior i'm pretty sure.
    but I was pretty high up for kills with theras. I got really good at bodyslamming pok and all the other squids as they came through a wormhole

    I tried to give Sojourn a try at least two separate times during my MUD career and just couldn't get into it. A couple of guys I used to see in the computer lab were big into that one though.

    Yea I played Sojourn as well, Troll Warrior named Gothog..I was always getting killed by the imms for taking the secret passage into....waterdeep was it? and selling the bone armor from..Ghore was it? After the split I jumped around to a few muds and than came back to duris years later.

    Hmmm.. It has been a very long time. I think my first one was call Aber or something to that effect. It was back in 89-90 time frame. Text only Unix based - scary thing...

    MUDded for a few years, but probably some of the lesser known ones.

    After the Plague (a ridiculously huge, detailed Hungarian thing) was my main, then I moved onto Legend of the Jedi, and then something called Ablaze (Godwars PVP mud). A few Final Fantasy type MUDs here and there.

    The most fun I ever had in a MUD was in the Ablaze one because of a broken blue magic mechanic that nobody seemed to really know about. I played what was considered the weakest class, except they had one ability. Instant cast, ignored level difference, could use it on as many people as you liked, it lasted indefinitely (until the caster canceled it or attacked them), you couldn't break it once it was used on you, and the only way to counter it was a very little known command. And it gave the caster the ability to force them to use any single command in the code. I could make them say things in OOC/general chat, or kill themselves, or do emotes. Anything. It got fixed after about a week, but oh man, that week. One guy told me that once it wore off he was going to PK me until his fingers bled. Good times.

    I love my GUI MMOs and games to death, but sometimes, I miss my MUDs.

    I played ZORK, text based game, and then HACK where your character was the '@' symbol.
    Good times.
    Moved on to the Sierra network for Yserbius and then Dark Sun Online before I started to Beta for Eq1.
