    Default Can someone recommend a good text-based MMORPG?

    I'm looking for a text based mmorpg to play. Does anyone know a good one, or one that at-least has a sizable amount of players?

    I don't know if MUDs is what you meant by "text based MMORPG" but they are just that, and I've been playing them for years. http://www.mudconnect.com/top10.html Look through this site of that's the case. The top 10 ones are obviously popular, and if you look under "Listings" you can also browse by category, so you can choose something you really like.


    Here is a list of text-based MMORPGs that I just stole from Wikipedia.. I guess this might be the type of "text-based" MMORPG you're referring too, but MUDs are good to look at too.


    • Kings of Chaos – Lord of the Rings based fantasy
    • Canon – medieval fantasy
    • Domain of Heroes – medieval fantasy
    • eRepublik – real world simulation
    • Hattrick – soccer
    • OGame – science fiction
    • Torn – crime, gang violence
    • Urban Dead – survival horror
    • Blood Wars - post-apocalyptic fantasy, vampire

    I'm a big RPer on MMORGs -- what is you're looking for in the game. Everyone seems to have different interests that attract them?

    Crafting?
    Enforced RP?
    Immersive Environment?
    Pkilling allowed? Permadeath?
    What size of playerbase?
    Genre? Fantasy? Futuristic? Modern? Book specific?

    I can give you a few suggestions .. i just need a better direction of what you're looking for.

    I'd happily plug the game I've been playing since 1995 -- but I don't think thats fair to you.

    Im not too picky.. Though I'd rather not have an enforced roleplay, I do like rp.
    Immersive environment is nice.
    Im not a PKer. Perma death is alright.
    I large player base is nice, but not necessary.
    I love fantasy and futuristic. Book specific could be nice..but, I doubt I've read many books that the games may be based on.

    Check out Genesis LP Mud . www.genesismud.org Its medieval fantasy based game. Its a RP encouraged environment. Basically as long as you don't go running around constantly talking about ooc things -- you will be fine. The are several domains/lands -- some based on books -- Middle Earth, Krynn, Earthsea -- and some entirely unique. The player base is not huge. But it a very loyal and supportive group. And we're always looking for new people. There is no permadeath. The PKing is RP enforced and they don't allow player harassment, mass slaughters or newbie killing. There are lot of cool guilds and clubs to join that help develop you character and offer different skills and abilities. I use cmud client to log into the game -- but there is a client developed by the staff on the website if you want a quick way to check it out. If you have any questions -- feel free to ask.
